Ready and waiting..
Tonight is the night. I am prepared. I cashed out of Titan. I have kind of lost my desire to play there. If they comp me some money again I might but with a slow run at MTTs and nothing really clicking there I decided to switch to Full Tilt. I started out with $50. I am going to try and grow the bankroll slowly there. First on the schedule is SNGs. I played last night. I basically had a 5K chip lead until the very end where one guy took out the last four players and had an 11K to 2K lead on me. I was able to take the lead on his poor play, but he got lucky with a straight draw on the river, and caught up again. I guess I can not complain because my push with 47s00ted against his Kx flopping a straight was kinda cool too. He finally took me out when I had to push with K6 vs KT. T6 flop basically sealed my deal. So I am up $16 on my first day at Full Tilt. I like there SNG layout much better than any other site out there. You start with chips. The rounds are long. The rounds are not so long that you knit a sweater with your nose hair. Next up more SNG action of the 10/1 variety and a small MTT to test the waters.
The Stars account is doing alright. I had my first losing session of PLO8. It did not have to be that way as I was up almost double for a while. After a bad call I just never got it back together. Oh well. I dropped one $40 buyin. Still up overall. I cashed a little out of Stars and will be building that bankroll up from $200.
I am ready for Foxwoods. Dr. Pauly's cell number, check. Directions to Foxwoods, check. Bright Red Sox shirt, check. Champion Patriots Hat, check. I decided to bring $150 for my first taste of live play. I hope it is enough. I am a little nervous about doing something stupid or saying the wrong thing. Forget it if I win a big pot. Especially if I have had anything to drink I am letting out a HUGE BOOYAH! I will try to contain my enthusiasm though. I forget what we are going to play, hopefully a little NL, as it would probably be more exciting than limit. Mapquest says it is 1.28 hours to Foxwoods from here. I remember it being longer but we will see. It is 80 miles. I plan on leaving at 6:00 and getting there around 7:30. I hope enough of the traffic has let up by then so this does not end up being a 3 hour trip. We will see.
