Seems like old times
I am exhausted. My weekend was long and my day was too. I told Sir after my last class today, “I need sleep and cards”. Right now I’m 1 for 2.
The familiar chime of Ultimate Buddy alerted me to the presence of a fellow blogger on UB. I technically needed to go to the mall, but it was right at 5pm, and I really didn’t want to fight traffic. Plus, we had so much fun last time we played together…
I’ll let you get the details on my most winning hand of the night from Mourn himself. Suffice to say, I have mixed emotions about it.
My 2nd most winning hand came with the hammer! –; Preflop I raised to $1.35 and got 2 callers. Flop was Th Jc 4h. Checked to me, I bet $4.65 and get one caller. At the turn I was prepared to check, but I paired my 7! I bet $7 (hellooo!! major tell) and he called. River comes 2d, even better, and I bet $10, and he folds, showing 5h 6h.
Boy, was he pissed.
I had my chip kingdom built up quite nicely and then saw it fall down before me. (“Hey, remember back when I had a $65 stack? That was nice…”). I have a tendency to do that. Oh, I still left up, so I can’t complain too much, but as I said to Mourn, you know that feeling you get when you realize you should have quit a long time ago? It’s not a good one. Oh well. Education isn’t free. [note to self – file renewal for financial aid]
I have thoughts about my game and the game in general, but they’re all still floating around, not yet solidified and ready for prime-time. Soon though. I will say that using this little PokerTracker thing helps a lot. 😉 OK, using it properly helps a lot.
All right, it’s late and did I mention that I am extremely tired? Thanks boys for the company tonight, bloggers + poker is always fun, and it was a great welcome back.
