What else could one conclude when I do things like say to myself, “I bet this bastard called my pre-flop raise with 7-4 sooted, and just snapped off my Aces with that river four…”, and then make the call for all my chips. Just to prove I’m right. And I am.
Beware. I’m fixin’ to go all Wafflicious now…
Do I need a challenge?
Contemplating another SNG challenge. I haven’t been playing very much lately, not even the Mookie, and need something to motivate me to sit and play for an hour or two each night. My last challenge was in 2005-06, when I won a $1 in a slot onlain on AP and ran it up into thousands of dollars over the next 6 months, playing nothing except SNGs. I cashed that out long ago to pay bills.
I think I have $6 or so, so I can start playing the $1 games and see if I get a little lucky in the beginning. We’ll see.
I tried to be the Gigli. I went with the first playable hand, AK, up against QQ. I had a chance to fold but didn’t. Told my wife I wasn’t playing another 3 hours of this stupid game to come up with nothing to show for it except my dick in my hand.
George Effin’ Will
If you haven’t read George Will’s Sunday column, you should. Warms the cockles of my heart. The sub-cockles, too.
After reading about the saga of Boku87 on the Pokerstars blog, I had to try the micro SNGs. The results were predictable. In my first two attempts, I was bounced with KK vs. QTo and a runner-runner flush, then my JJ got crushed by the mighty A5o. Yes, I raised pre-flop. Yes, the blinds were high enough that one would think an opponent might think twice.
Later, I played a token satellite with Full Tilt points and swept through to my token in remarkably quick time, just in time for the 28K Guarantee. I played well and made great decisions, but was card dead all night, with the exception of a QQ hand that doubled me up at the right time. I went out somewhere around 230 or so, well short of the money, but I felt good about my play and had no regrets.
What’s this? Posting 3 days in a row? Who do I think I am, a blogger?
Ok, the cash games have been middling for me. I so hate the penny-poker ATC crap. Popped over to the Double-Deuce satellite with my FT points, as I’ve done to close out each night this week. Got my entry in about an hour or so. Prepared the wife for a Sunday afternoon of my cussing and folding.
Can I just say…
I’m liking the new lobby at Fill Tilt.
I don’t know what the prevailing opinion is amongst the poker bloggeratti since I’m a little behind on reading the blogs.
But, I like it. Clean. Easy to understand filters. My only criticism is move the video tour off the lobby. I accidentally clicked it while playing and lost my internet connection.
Yeah, my connection sucks like that.
