Allow me to ramble a bit…

Posted by in Poker

Really, I need professional help. First for my insomnia. I went to bed at 5am Wednesday, and as a result got kinda tired early on (midnight-ish) Wednesday night. Well sweet. I went to bed. I even read a little Harrington to seduce me into sleep. No dice. Finally at 2:30am I gave up, and finding nothing of worth on TV, thought I would see what crazy kids were up at that hour. Found a guy hanging out in Korea for a few more hours, and another going for his own all-nighter. After hearing about the insanity that is $50 HU SnGs in the wee morning hours (very +EV apparently), it was decided to hit the Crazy Pineapple play chip tables at UB.

What exactly does one do when dealt 7 7 2 in Crazy Pineapple? You have a pair. You have the hammer. You have a dilema. [No, not really, if you’re sane, because you have a pair. You discard the 2. Simple. Move along.] But…this was HU with a blogger. And it was play chips. Bye-bye 7. Raise! Re-raise! [Really, UB needs an “automatic cap” button. At least for the two of us playing HU. Raises get no respect!]

Good times, good times. Oh, and for the record, he kicked my ass. And I went to bed at 5am AGAIN. I need some Vicodin…one of those and I sleep like an angel. Or, I may try Sklansky. The problem is, I read and get sleepy, but then when I try to sleep the mind starts to go…

If I were in Vegas, this would not be a problem. 2 weeks…

Yes, I think I will. And I don’t want to hear it. I’m going to be surrounded by temptation tomorrow, so…

Blogger home game tonight! Should make for an interesting write-up. At least I know when if I bust out of the tourney, it won’t be to someone’s wife who’s never read a lick of poker strategy. 😉
