So.. tired..

Well.. Still at work at 11:18PM. I may go home early tonight. Not sure yet. Been a hell of a two week stretch. Of course making $$ as a consultant working those many hours is not the worst thing that could happen to you..

Thanks to Duggle for the response. I definitely can take constructive criticism, idea’s on how to improve my game, etc.. Somehow saying I am as big of a disaster as the Titanic does not fit in the category. However it was a standup thing to do to come and smooth things over in the comments. Appreciate it.

Oh, and btw, Veneno, Duggle did not try and smooth things over with you. So if you guys want to go have a Blogger flame war be my guest. Might be amusing.

Now to the Poker content. There are times in your playing when you just do things right. Your not sure how, or why, or why they worked. You just sense some larger plane of Poker that might exist and tap into it a little bit. I have felt this way on a few occasions. One was a positive experience. I played a NL table like a harp. I kept raising hands with nothing, showing the hands down. Then taking people’s entire stacks. It was very amusing. The other time was last night. It was kind of the opposite. I lost a single buyin. So not a lot of damage. However the feeling was the same. I controlled the table. I got them to call me down with anything. The hit a lot. I played poorly and did not take advantage of it. However for that short period of time I was controlling the table. I was causing people to not play their cards, but to play what I allow them to see.

Now I am no master of Poker. Somehow I think this is a huge part of the game though. It is not something you pickup in a book overnight. You have to work at it and figure it out as you go. I do think that control like this is VERY important. You can either control a table or let it control you. Cause other people to not know what to do or tilt off your money because some donkey out draws you. I have no idea where this brief peek into an idea will go. Perhaps I will have more and more experiences like this and become a better player. Either that or hit an iceberg.

Duggle..

I thought your comments regarding Sirf were offensive.

I did read your post. You say that your comments were meant to create balance …I don’t get how saying “good idea” he quit playing, “knew it wasn’t going to end well”, and it was like watching “Titantic” can be found as anything other than insulting.

As for Sirf knowing that you love him, if you read his blog it seems obvious to me that love was not quite what he felt. But I give you credit for smoothing things over.

When my friends are bashed, you can bet that I will defend them. If complimenting and praising a pal is considered kissing ass, then yes…I will keep doing it and enjoying it!!

I have no interest in having a “Blogger flame war” with you as Sirf suggested.

Nuff said on this subject.

Here is the post from my blog that I am "balancing."


I started reading SirF because he was incredibly prolific. He would post three or four times per day, and it was pretty entertaining stuff. He has slowed down since he busted out in DAZZLING fashion. I still read his stuff and enjoy playing with him at the Party Poker tables, because he's a great guy who loves to talk about poker. He's one of the good guys.

Additionally, I said it "MIGHT" be a good idea he quit, if he was just going to keep busting over and over.

I don't enjoy reading about people's bustouts, and I'll be DAMNED if I am going to encourage him to keep doing it.

Thanks for taking my comments out of context. Maybe you should start a blog, so people can start misquoting you.

Sorry, I just saw that you do have a 10 day old blog, just not under the name veneno.

Good luck with it.
