YAY! I finally got to go home. At 4AM in the morning. Ouch. So what do I do when I step in the door? PLAY POKER! DER!!! I just needed something to wind down with. So I played a quick 20/3 SNG. Came in 4th. I was over aggressive with AQ when the blinds were 40/80 or something like that. I had 700 in chips. Everyone else had around 1600. I might have been able to fold to the money instead of being bubble boy. However I had a good hand and went with it. The accursed 99's beat me! Such is Poker. Such is Life.
Anyways.. I wake up at 10AM this morning and what do I do? PLAY POKER! DER!!!! Just a few hands of 1/2 limit. I bought in for 25 and ran it up to 38 very quicky. I then overplayed A9 on my last hand and dropped it to 33. I then decided working would be more profitable so I am heading out. Up a nice eight bucks in five minutes. That is like 500 BB/HR!! See what I lose? I am bad at math.
One last thing. I think I give the impression that I lose alot of money playing Poker. Reading my Blog and hearing all the raw emotion of losing it probably seems like I have lost thousands of dollars as a player. It just is not true. Well, it is kind of true. In the past two years I have spent between $200-$400 on poker. So while I am a losing player, and I have run small amounts up to thousands of dollars and lost those thousands I have not actually invested alot of my money out of pocket. Which is somewhat good I guess. I think that $400 as a learning experience, entertainment cost, and Blog community initiation fee over two years is not so bad. Once I figure out how to keep my profits I will be in good shape.
