Dammit, No Gigli!

by BSN


I tried to be the Gigli. I went with the first playable hand, AK, up against QQ. I had a chance to fold but didn't. Told my wife I wasn't playing another 3 hours of this stupid game to come up with nothing to show for it except my dick in my hand.

Gambooooool!!!

Hope everyone has/had a great time!

Bleah!

by BSN

No Shit. My AK, with an A on the flop, got pwned by 7-4 off with all the money going in on the flop. Runner-Runner straight and IGHN.

I hate this effin game.

It's entirely possible I'm the worst poker player on the planet

by BSN

What else could one conclude when I do things like say to myself, "I bet this bastard called my pre-flop raise with 7-4 sooted, and just snapped off my Aces with that river four...", and then make the call for all my chips. Just to prove I'm right. And I am.

Beware. I'm fixin' to go all Wafflicious now...

!@#$%^&*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

George Effin' Will

by BSN

If you haven't read George Will's Sunday column, you should. Warms the cockles of my heart. The sub-cockles, too.

-----------

After reading about the saga of Boku87 on the Pokerstars blog, I had to try the micro SNGs. The results were predictable. In my first two attempts, I was bounced with KK vs. QTo and a runner-runner flush, then my JJ got crushed by the mighty A5o. Yes, I raised pre-flop. Yes, the blinds were high enough that one would think an opponent might think twice.

Sigh.

-----------

Later, I played a token satellite with Full Tilt points and swept through to my token in remarkably quick time, just in time for the 28K Guarantee. I played well and made great decisions, but was card dead all night, with the exception of a QQ hand that doubled me up at the right time. I went out somewhere around 230 or so, well short of the money, but I felt good about my play and had no regrets.

What's this? Posting 3 days in a row? Who do I think I am, a blogger?

by BSN

Ok, the cash games have been middling for me. I so hate the penny-poker ATC crap. Popped over to the Double-Deuce satellite with my FT points, as I've done to close out each night this week. Got my entry in about an hour or so. Prepared the wife for a Sunday afternoon of my cussing and folding.

Can I just say...

by BSN

I'm liking the new lobby at Fill Tilt.

I don't know what the prevailing opinion is amongst the poker bloggeratti since I'm a little behind on reading the blogs.

But, I like it. Clean. Easy to understand filters. My only criticism is move the video tour off the lobby. I accidentally clicked it while playing and lost my internet connection.

Yeah, my connection sucks like that.

God help me...

by BSN

I've started playing poker again, after a many-months layoff. Starting all the way at the bottom: .05/.10 of FTP with my massive $5 bankroll. Yeah, didn't get around to doing that SNG challenge. A bad infection in my leg left me out of sorts for many weeks.

Anyway, I don't use a 'waffles-roll' (when your monthly reload comes from FTP) so this is going off the remnants of my last disaster.

What the hell. Over three years ago I started with $1 won in a freeroll and wound up playing $200 Turbo SNGs in 6 months before I lost my nerve and cashed-out. I'll grind away for a couple days, see what happens...
