About that time, I realized that Party Poker has been dishing out some more free 'come back' cash. I logged on and found that I had not one but TWO batches of free money.
I like free money.
The first bonus, though, was dumb. $10 free, good in the casino only, $10 wagering requirement. I enjoy a good game of rigged dollar blackjack, so I played forty or fifty hands. Never got above $12, was as low as $3, but I came back and finished at $11. Cha-ching!
Of course, I can't withdraw that money, but now I can use it in the poker room, where another was $40 waiting. I only have to play 400 hands before I can cash anything out. Just to make sure it was real, I played about two orbits of $25NL, lost ten cents, got bored and quit. More progress.
Now all I have to do is decide how I'm going to play 387 hands in the next nine days on a $50 bankroll. What should it be? $0.50/$1.00 limit? $25NL? Should I take it to the $25PLO tables and gambool with the omatards? Tough decision.
It's not as if I have no other bonuses to work on, either. I have a few hundred hands left to clear at Titan -- where I'll be a 'Silver VIP' next month, for whatever that's worth -- as well as a pending bonus at Full Tilt, one at Stars that I may never get to, a few stacked Crypto bonuses, etc, etc.
You think I need to play more?
I think my goal for the next month or so is
Anyway, any mental recharging that I did by being out of town quickly vanished and it's back to the same depressing slog. At least I have a little reading and some cards to look forward to...
