I need a fix

Poker. Poker. I think I am jonesing. I was reading on Aprils Blog (Not a Poker Blog) a comment about how juicy the ½ 6-MAX is. If it is anything like the 5/10 6-MAX then this is probably true. So end of March I am going to buyin for $300 (I know too little) and play that for a while.

I need to figure out how to not let my bad habits kill me too. I think for me a time limit for play is a good idea. I.E. 3 hours twice a week. Once the three is up no matter if I am a penny up or twenty down I leave. I have to get less result oriented and just play the game. I also want to work on leaving when ahead and starting to slide back down. It kills me when I am up 80 bucks on a nice juicy ½ 6-Max and then lose it because of some bad hands or bad play with good cards, suckouts, whatever.. I really just need to treat the game like any other job. Put my hours in. Submit my timesheet at the end of the week. Get paid if I had a good week or not get paid if I had a bad week. I guess the “submit the timesheet” thing would be posting my current bankroll to the site. I think if I see progress over time I can at least take baby steps and start looking week by week instead of minute by minute.

I will be playing in the Talking Poker game this Sunday around 3PM on Stars. I will signup sometime soon. Talking Poker is a great forum with some really good people. I really respect TP, Chip Fish, Aequetis and several of the other members. TP has a nice set of Signup bonus’s on his landing page In the forum under General Poker is a sticky message about the tourney. Besides the guys I mentioned it is a mix of good and bad players. So it can be a very fun experience. I also think they are going to try and get a monthly game going or something along those lines. So if you have not visited give it a look, and if you’re a member I hope to see you there.

When you reload, try signing up for the PSO rake rebate program with PokerNow...

I'd have a little more cushion for the shortgames if that's what you're going to be playing.

The swings can be rather large.

Studioglypic is right, use the program at (PSO) and you will get $100 bonus with 1200 raked hands required, which is nothing on a Party Skin.

You might need a clean machine to do the initial signup, so get that lined up before March.

Hey, man. Caught up on your blog and was sorry to read of the bad bankroll experience. Taking a break can be good. You'll come back more focussed. Those 6-max 1/2 games are soft as hell. Aggressive play mixed up with slow-playing monsters is the way to go. Most times you will see 5-6 people seeing the flop. Lol... have fun.
