May 2009 Ramblings

Today, 3 bad beats costed me $6.6 and I learned that playing bounty touraments is not good for me. Also, I realized that getting the bounty in the bounty tournaments is just gambling in all senses. If you have the upper hand when some one is going down, you can get it, otherwise not. So, I decided not to play bounty tournaments again unless I am invited for free.

I have withdrawed my events
This morning, I have withdrawed my 3 events from chipmeup.com since I do not have good statistics on sharkscope.com
chipmeup.com and all the other sites about staking are taking the sharkscope.com statistics very serious.
So I thought that I must demand stake AFTER I have good statistics at sharkscope.com.
I plan to play only at CakePoker com for the following year and demand stakes after my statistics reaches a good point for this site.

Long Time No Post
Came back tonight trying to find my old posts about last year's WSOP bet I had with my friend Ryan. I wanted to use the same format again this year but am having trouble finding it.
Anyway, it has been forever since I posted here. I can't believe I have played almost no poker since last September. Reading some of these old posts gets me in the mood to play again. The competition/strategy is what I was so addicted to, not just the "gambling" side of the game. I was crazy busy during this last school year. I was student teaching which was awesome but left me with no time at all to play.
Now that it is summer again I am finishing three online classes to officially graduate, working at the same old summer camp, and looking for a teaching job (nearly impossible in Michigan). Long story short, I may start playing a little bit again. Hopefully I still have a slight idea how to play.
Hi to everyone that used to comment: deiyuo, grlg, natepringle, jaspinal and others. Hopefully I will have some tourneys to post soon.

set over set online
do any of you folks run into flopping set over set only to have the one outer ruin you. this happens to me VERY frequently. it's kind of annoying because it's the type of hand that forces you to lose money. I am actually not betting top full like I did in the past as I have gotten gunshy.

This is my Bankroll log for real money poker since i've started playing. Give or take a few dollars because i did not do this when i first deposited and started playing. I am going to try to be pretty accurate from here on out.
