It's Monday. Back to work after four days of not work. Ugh.
So, after another lousy performance in Saturdays With Pauly, I end up with the chance to play Bobby Ipod heads up for the prize. Barring unforseen circumstances, tonight at 10:00 pm.
a. I'm in a serious NLHE funk;
b. I have never, to the best of my recollection, played a heads-up SnG; and
c. Bobby just happened to relieve me of better than two buy-ins at Friday night's homegame,
a smart person might try and do some preparation, or at least get a good night's sleep. Someone like me, however, says 'screw that' and will end up winging it. Instead of doing the smart stuff, yesterday I
1. Played a PLO8 tournament on Full Tilt, cashing and then giving away most of my stack on a truly horrible decision.
2. Worked on clearing a bonus at Pokerroom, with hopes of also clearing requirements to get an Amazon.com gift certificate for holiday gift-giving purposes. I'm not a huge fan of Pokerroom -- it's almost impossible to clear their bonus playing NL, so I'm ending up playing 2-4 limit (which I am NOT bankrolled for, frankly, based on my deposit, although I could always reload). So far, it's been going reasonably well, and I think I've discovered and plugged some of the more serious leaks in my limit game.
3. Closed out the evening playing play-chip Chinese Poker with Drizz. Fun game, but the swings are ridiculous. After one short session on Friday, I came to the definite conclusion that Chinese for cash is a very bad idea, at least on a short bankroll.
I m not smrt. I hope I'm still awake at 10:00.
