Blah and Meh
Still Blahh with a little Meh mixed in. I got my Bodoggy account funded so decided to try her out last night. I lost the SNG I played in. Actually I think I played really well. I had a small 700 chip lead early. I then called a 3-way all in with top pair nut flush redraw. If I lose the hand I have 700 chips left.. if I win I have a huge lead. I worked my way back up to 2K. I then hurt myself and go down to 1500 on a semi-bluff. Really bad spot to do this. Finally I get all in with my remaining 1200, which was 2/3 the other guys stack, against his powerhouse AT. I had QQ. The flop did not disappoint. All in all it was a VERY easy game and I really easily could have won the whole thing. I think the semi-aggressive tack was good but c-betting and bluffing when the blinds get big against retards is not smart. If I made one less bluff I may have survived the QQ vs AT all in. Who knows.
Other than that I have been playing a bunch of Warcraft and working my ass off. My Mage is level 45 now. I took him raising Tauren Mill last night. In general this is a bad idea because it is a quick flight by bat from the Undercity and some level seventies could fly in and kick my ass. However I escaped without any damage and took out 5 guards, a couple of vendors, and 3-4 other players before getting bored and going to sleep. It is not as much fun when there is no retaliation. It is kind of fun when a lower level character gets too close and you frost bolt his ass into oblivion though.
It is sort of hard to level characters in WOW since they all converge into the same places and you end up doing the same quests over and over. I have been here and done this with my Hunter kind of thing. A Mage is a totally different beast though. He is all about short bursts of huge damage which is fun. He also has multiple ways to escape when the situation turns bad. Works out well for me.
Tonight I have to work again so not sure how much pokering I am going to get in. I do want to try out the cash tables. Supposedly they are pretty sweet.
