Kurt Warner is the Man!!! and Changing things around

Wow. How about them Cardinals? I'm pretty sure I know how the town of Phoenix feels right now as we went through the same thing here in St Louis. Kurt Warner now becomes only the 2nd quarterback to make it to the Superbowl with 2 different teams. If he wins or should I say when he wins, he will become the 1st quarterback to win with two different teams. So yes, Kurt Warner is the man!!! While I am at it, I can't forget Fitz. Larry Fitzgerald is the Man!!! There is no question who I will be rooting for as I hate the Steelers.

Things went from bad to worse for me over the weekend with the downswing reaching 32 buyins. When things are going bad, these kind of hands happen:

No need to tell you villain is a terrible player.

What can you say about that one? Yikes!!!

A poker buddy CMitch suggested that I give Full Ring a try for a while. To me, a change of pace sounded like a good idea. I'll give it a shot for a while.

One of my very first hands playing full Ring. Yep, this is how things are going.

Dang!!! It's way too early to tell; but I was up a little over 3 buyins yesterday. It was more a matter of my big hands holding up. It is definitely a lot slower which get some getting used to. You obviously play a lot tighter as I played at a 16/14/3.2 pace.

I'll continue to give it a shot and see what happens.

Have a nice day!!!

I love Arizona - I obv love the coaches (since they came from your hated Steelers) :) and I love Fitz/Boldin, I always like Warner even though he seems a little over the top for me but it is who he is and I like him for that. I also like Adrian Wilson and since Hightower is a fellow UR grad, really, I was hoping that Arizona would make it to the Superbowl. For me personally, this is a great matchup. Now, #6 here we come.

I wonder if "tightening up" will be the true source of your success moving forward. Just a thought.

Hey, you gonna make it out Saturday night for the game?

Going Full Ring will force me to tighten up so yep.. going to give that a try.

Unfotunately, I am not going to be able to make tourney.
