had a decent post written up, but the laptop battery ate it by not warning me before running dead. HP FAIL.
- Rush Poker is EVIL. Chased bonus points like a moron in a two-hour session at 100NL. Went up 2 buyins, then down 1, then even, then down 3, then finished up ahead $10. I am a variance fiend in cash games.
Someday I'll learn not to three-barrel into trips, or call down three streets in position to see someone river me, or try to catch the river bluff that is always for value.
However, flatting big pairs behind a raiser and backraising/making a flop move does work for making mobney, so I got that working for me. Just generating rakeback, I guess...
- Not only do I spend every morning wondering which unique way my back/hip/legs are going to hurt today, but the last few days have been spent fighting a mini-cholera epidemic at the house. At one point four different people were laid out in various states of ugh/running to bathroom every half-hour. Damn noroviruses or whatever. At least it looks like it's over now...
- Played a live bar poker tournament for the first time in forever this week since my work schedule changed this year. People have gotten much better, shockingly enough. Still finished 3/25 and played pretty damn well, except when I kept paying off river bets with bluff catchers (this may be a pattern)
- Playing Spewday and Very Josie this week and we'll see what happens.
