SNG - Day 7

Things are going much better; but there is still a lot to work on. I seem to be bubbling more than I historically do and I have more 2nds than 1sts.... So I need to turn the bubble into money and the 2nds into 1sts. I'm not sure how I'm going to do that; but I'm sure I will figure it out when the time comes. Anyway, here are the numbers:

  4. 3rd - TT lost A4
  5. 4th - Q2 lost to AQ... AQ beats me coming and going

  9. 3rd - A8s lost 77
  10. 1st - AJ beat KQ
  11. 3rd - J7s lost A4

I can't be too unhappy where I'm at considering where I started. I hopefully am on pace to get to 200 by the end of the month. I am going out of town for the weekend so won't be able to play until Monday; but I should be OK.

Yesterday (during the day) just kind of had a bad feeling to it. I couldn't explain it at first. I wasn't sick... I then read some other blogs and it also hit me. The main event of the WSOP started and I wasn't there. Not that I ever had any realistic visions of making it there; but I hoped. Boy, can hope be a dangerous thing. Anyway, I'm just glued to a fellow bloggers (http://taopoker.blogspot.com/) site to keep up on his updates.

My thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the victims of the bombings in London. I heard Jim Cramer (Mad Money on CNBC) say the maybe the US is complacent against these kind of things... due to the market going up yesterday. I surely hope I, nor anyone, becomes complacent to the heinous acts of these terrorists. It just inconceivable to me the hate they must feel to do these kind of acts. We must continue to fight for the God given right of freedom and not let these people get away we these acts. I'm not going to get into whether or not we should have troups overseas as that is not the scope of this blog.

Will,
I agree completely with all of that.

On the poker side, glad to see the up-swing. I'm hoping for that same turn around starting Monday when I begin the SNG challenge.
