YAY! I finally got to go home. At 4AM in the morning. Ouch. So what do I do when I step in the door? PLAY POKER! DER!!! I just needed something to wind down with. So I played a quick 20/3 SNG. Came in 4th. I was over aggressive with AQ when the blinds were 40/80 or something like that. I had 700 in chips. Everyone else had around 1600. I might have been able to fold to the money instead of being bubble boy. However I had a good hand and went with it. The accursed 99's beat me! Such is Poker. Such is Life.

Anyways.. I wake up at 10AM this morning and what do I do? PLAY POKER! DER!!!! Just a few hands of 1/2 limit. I bought in for 25 and ran it up to 38 very quicky. I then overplayed A9 on my last hand and dropped it to 33. I then decided working would be more profitable so I am heading out. Up a nice eight bucks in five minutes. That is like 500 BB/HR!! See what I lose? I am bad at math.

One last thing. I think I give the impression that I lose alot of money playing Poker. Reading my Blog and hearing all the raw emotion of losing it probably seems like I have lost thousands of dollars as a player. It just is not true. Well, it is kind of true. In the past two years I have spent between $200-$400 on poker. So while I am a losing player, and I have run small amounts up to thousands of dollars and lost those thousands I have not actually invested alot of my money out of pocket. Which is somewhat good I guess. I think that $400 as a learning experience, entertainment cost, and Blog community initiation fee over two years is not so bad. Once I figure out how to keep my profits I will be in good shape.

Keep your profits, eh? First, I would check how much you're paying in tournament fees. $20+3? They're ripping you off. :) Settle for no less than $20+2.

I bet that's just a typo.

It's not really how much you lost, it's how you lost it. It seemed to happen ALL AT ONCE, on ONE BIG TILT. Very scary!

I think it might have more to do with other things going on that poker too. That part of your life seems to be going much better, and I suspect your poker success will reflect that.

A Lawyer and a Blonde A lawyer and a blonde woman are sitting next to each other on a long flight from L.A. to New York. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains how the game works:

"I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me, and visa-versa."
Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep. The chauvinistic lawyer figures he will easily win the match since his opponent is a blonde, so he makes another offer:
"Okay, how about this. If you don't know the answer you pay me only $5, but if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $50."
This catches the blonde's attention and,
figuring that there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, she agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question.
"What's the distance from the earth
to the moon?"
The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a five-dollar bill and hands it to the lawyer. Now it's the blonde's turn. She asks the lawyer,
"What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"
The lawyer looks at her with a puzzled look.
He takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references. He taps into the airphone with his modem and searches the Net and even the Library of Congress. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and co-workers - all to no avail. After over an hour of searching for the answer, he finally gives up. He wakes the blonde and hands her $50. The
blonde politely takes the $50 and turns away to get back to sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little frustrated, wakes the blonde and asks,
"Well, so what IS the answer?"
Again without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.
