May 31, 2008, 11PM: Played 3 hours, Made $9.87 at Cake Poker
$0.10/0.20 Texas Hold'em

Time: 8:15PM-11:15PM
Hands Played: 164
Just like in Atlantic City, the fish come out of the water on the weekends. Also had some luck, as I had strong hands that held up, and calling stations that wanted to cap every street. I knew this was going to be tough, nickel and diming my way up to the next level. However, I am very happy almost doubling my session buy-in in 3 hours. Hoping for the same results tomorrow.

$0.10/0.20 Texas Hold'em

Time: 7:30PM-9:00PM

Same story as below – just a different day. I am beginning to think this was a major mistake. I always say, you can not beat a bingo player at poker.
Hoping the weekend brings better luck and more fishes with no luck.

May 29, 2008, 11PM: Played 3 hours, 45 minutes, Lost $1.30 at Cake Poker
$0.10/0.20 Texas Hold'em

Time: 3:45PM-4:45PM, 8:45PM-11:30PM
Hands Played: 279
Typical micro-stakes limit game. Big pocket pairs getting run over by draws that hit on the river, raises on a draw, etc., etc., etc. I do not know why I expect better play from others. I used to play 2/4 limit live all the time in Atlantic City. I know what a mess that can be. I am probably the only one at the table to have even read SuperSystem 2, or any poker book. Held my own though. I am surprised I ended down only $1.30, but definitely not how I wanted to start.

Deposit Processed

Depositing money on to Cake Poker can be painful. They do not give players from the United States many options to deposit. My debit card was declined, so I had to deposit using my checking account though eWalletXpress. I thought it would be instant, but I had to wait for the vendor to make a withdrawal from my checking account before it appeared in my account and I could transfer it onto Cake Poker. I started this on Monday, and finally, 3 days later, my starting bankroll of $100 is on Cake.

This poker blogging thing seems pretty cool – I think I will give it a shot. Even if nobody is interested in reading my entries, it would be cool to have my own poker diary to look back upon.
I play live about once a month in Atlantic City. You can usually find me at either Borgata or Showboat playing 3/6 or 4/8 limit. Sometimes when I am there on a Friday night/Saturday during the summer, I will play the "pink-chip ($7.50/$15.00) game" at the Tropicana for fun. I used to play no-limit, but my heart could not continue to take the stress that no-limit causes.
This online poker blog gave me the idea to try something different. I just signed up (with rake back!) on Cake Poker. For my experiment, I am going to deposit $100 and start with the micro-stakes limit games and attempt to work my way up the stakes through proper bankroll management. I will start at $.10/$.20 (500 big blinds), and I can not move up to the next level until I reach 500 big blinds. For example, I can not move up to $.25/$.50 until my bankroll reaches $250.
For those of you that choose to follow my journey/experiment, thank you, and I hope you enjoy.
