Bad Night.. Good Night..
I have been running bad for a few days. It has not been fun. I decided to try and play with SSHE's hand suggestions for raising and calling, etc.. I figured it would be a good way to start using the book. I am not sure what happened but the tighter I played the more I got rivered. It was BAD. A high flush rivered by a boat. You get the idea. I was gonna throw the book out the window (in an irrational moment). I really need to read more about the post flop play though. I need to finish the whole book. I think it will really help my game.
I ended up trippling up to $150 on a 1/2 table. It just happened to be paying me off left and right. None of the other tables I played did as well. Not sure why. I busted out on a couple of .50/1 and 1/2 tables also. It was not fun. I am back down to $626. Oh well.
On the good side I was given 1500 VIP points and I am now a member of Empire Poker's VIP club. I used some of my chips to buy $50 cash into my account. So I should be up to $675. It should show up in the next few days. I may use the rest to buy another $50 chip next week. I like having some points in my account though. So Empire is basically going to give me $50 a month for playing on there site. Not bad! You know you play too much poker when the company invites you into there VIP club. On the end I am going to try and cut down a bit. Since I have been running bad I seem to want to play more so I can run worse. I also have been trying to get the bankroll to a decent number. I really want to play 2/4 10 sided since I can hardly ever find a 1/2 10 sided table on Empire. I think a few days off would be good. Finish the SSHE book and then hit the tables with a better idea of how to make huge sums.
The "Boston Bullets" FFL team came through. Jake Dellorme gave me enough points to win my first ever FFL game. I am going up against the Cubans next week. There team scored 150 points in contrast to my teams 130. So I hope I can improve next week. I had several players with .50 points so something needs to be done. I did switch my WR and picked up Patten of the Pats. He is Brady's favorite long pass guy, and scores alot of TDs so I hope to make some points there.
