Not alot of time...

Well back at home. Hugged the kids. Sweet! The kids so missed me. They change so much at age 2, even in two weeks. *sigh*. I am glad to be home. I am sleeping in the office though so things are not totally cool yet.

Poker continues to be fun. I won $60 at 100/NL tonight. I started playing kinda late because I had stuff going on. Work. Side Projects. Oh yeah, I got extended for another week. Anyway I need to get to bed by midnight because part of my parole is waking up on time so the kids get into a good schedule. So in like 45 mins I won the $60. You have got to LOVE 100/NL!

While the NL game was going on I decided to see if I could beet 20/Limit SNG's anymore. They used to be one of my best games when I had 3K. So I played one. The strategy I use in these things is very simple. Fold everything that is not really really good until the blinds get crazy and then wait for a good hand and make alot of cash while the blinds are high. So basically the blinds are hitting 50/100 and I have my original 800 in chips left, maybe a few more. I get blinded down alot waiting for a good hand. I actually had to fold QT to a 3-Bet, which made a straight, the NUT straight. I also had to fold A5 which rivered a straight. So the cards wanted to make me a winner.

So anyway I get blinded to about 700 with like 6 people left. Everyone has bigger stacks than me. I then raise with AKh and the flop is AK2 with two clubs. So me and another medium stack end up going at it until I am all in. He has K5 of clubs and does not improve. This gets me to 1560 and in good shape to finish.

I then make a mistake and semi-bluff against 77. Now the guy has a pair of sevens and he is calling with two overs, a flush, and my straight draw on the board. I have no idea what he was thinking. However I screwed up and left myself with 560.

I get blinded down to 260 when I hit AQo. I decide this is as good as any and raise. Someone with 8's calls me and I spike a Q and an A. Sweeeeet! Back to 520. Woot! Of course the blinds are 100/200 but only five are left.

So with 320 left I decide to push again with AQ. I raise and get two callers. So if I hit I tripple up and I am in real good shape to finish. I end up spiking an A on the river for the victory! Woo hoo! So now I am one to the money with 960 left. I wait until the guy with 300 left is blinded out and ITM! I end up making a run and getting even with people. I however overplay a pair of 8's and 3rd is all I am going to do. Oh well. I was getting tired anyways. So fourty bucks! Sweet!

The bankroll is at a nice healthy proportion right now. I hear the 200/NL tables calling me.. Sir.. Sir.. Sir.. I would have tried one out by now but they are ALWAYS packed full! Dammit! Oh well.. here is to hoping the good times keep rolling.
