Terrible weekend. I lost 12 cents. Ok, that was from poker playing; but from my rakeback payment and a little Blackjack, I was up about $75. Not real good; but a winning weekend from a dollars perspective.
Well, for the first time in my 5 year online poker career, I have decided to start withdrawing money. I've always stated that this is just a hobby and didn't want to withdraw to change that; but I've decided to change that. Part of the reason is just to show Mrs Wonka that something tangible is coming from all of my poker playing which is again only about 1 hour a day. The second thing is we bought a new car and how cool would it be to have poker monies pay for a new car. Don't get me wrong, I don't have enough money online to pay for a new car; but I have enough to help with payments. Speaking of payments, how said it is to have a car payment. I've gotten used to not having one.
I am really getting the football itch as opening day is only a couple of weeks away. Fantasy drafts are happening so the fever is getting high. I still have to wait until a week from tomorrow until we have our draft. I'm going to have to start looking at the preseason stuff at some point. I've really on watched the Cowboys who are ready for their Super Bowl Run!!!
OK, for the hand of the day.

My plan was to check call this down. Should I be giving up by the river? Should I be raising somewhere along the line (including preflop)?
