Stud Eight is Great
Sorry I have not written. I think most people would get bored of Stud since you all are such HE junkies. I am enjoying the change of pace though. I have decided that S8 is more profitable than Hi alone. More people (including me sometimes) chasing that low, and a chance to split if you are wrong about your high or low being good. It also adds the challenge of figuring out if someone has a great hand or is just trying to catch the low.
Work is most EXCELLENT. I am developing again! Woo hoo! The environment is the best. I can dress like a slob, I get free food, and all the COKE I can DRINK! WOOT! It also does not hurt that people think I am a genius. Who can blame them? Working with creative advertising people is very interesting. It looks like the position could turn into a head of Microsoft Programming technologies type position which would be pretty cool. However before I get ahead of myself I will wait and see.
One thing I can not get the hang of is the SNGs. The stud SNGs kick my ass. Oh well. Someday maybe.
The bankroll is nursing itself back up. It will be a while before it gets back to 1300. Playing limit games by nature means winning 20 one night, losing 5, winning 10, etc.. etc.. ad nasium. So I expect it to take a lot longer to get the roll to a healthy level.
