Wow, where have you been

Has it really been 1 1/2 months since my last post. As always, it usually is a by product of my play. Instead of one mega / uber post to get caught up, I will gradually get back into it.

So, about 1 1/2 months to go, I was waiting for tables (don't have to do that anymore, do we?) so I looked up the heads up tables and saw one of the leading Headsup guys. So what do I do? I sit down with him. Needless to say, I got crushed. My full houses were running into quads, he was flopping full houses with the hammer (against my pocket queens), etc, etc... Throw those type beats and the fact that he outplayed me, led to a very disappointing 4 figure loss. This really took the air out of my sales.

I continued to run a bad for a few days. I have finally gotten back to normal or at least as normal as I can be. I'll be continuing to work on this.

So, that should do for a start. I'll leave this post with one pet peeve. Since my work has blocked reading blogspot blogs, I really hate it when people just post a few sentences to things like bloglines and google reader. There are a few blogs that I just can't read anymore since I can't get to them. Why do you just post portions?

Have a nice day!!!

4 figure loss? Wow! I've seen you online intermittently and was wondering what was up... Hope all is better now.

Glad to see you are back.

I could not count the number of times I have been slammed with an unthinkable poker loss that I still can't really explain happening even now. It can really take the wind out as you said, and it is definitely best to wait to dip your toe back in until you damn good and ready.

Here's hoping 2010 will be replete with wins and far fewer of those nights like you are describing. Damn though, flopping a boat with the hammer against your pocket Queens? That shiat is just raw.

Try an IP blocker or whatever you call those can definitely get around the block. A new year brings new luck (just like a new dealer). Just discovered this blog, will keep checking it out...

My Salukis play your Bears tonight at your place. Gooo dawgs!

(My verification word is eject -- hmm, note to self: don't put any money on SIU)

Wow, the line was 5.5 and they won by 5. It's amazing how close the oddsmakers are sometimes.

congrats on the win.

Interesting article you got here. It would be great to read more concerning that topic. The only thing your blog misses is some photos of some gizmos.
