I didnâ€™t get to play poker till about 5pm tonight. In the morning I had a couple errands to run (bills to pay) and needed some groceries. After that I went to the gym. That went well I guess.
[non poker related, just stuff that happened in my day] I got home and looked over a few hands from last night. I was just about to fire up a set of tourneys when my dad called and found a car on Craigslist that I should go look at. It was in a town named Grandview and itâ€™s about an hour, at least, away from here. I called the guy and he said a lady was coming out to look at the car and if I could beat her out there that I could have first dibs. Well turns out the lady lived around me. As I was driving out there, I noticed a white car following me. Thought nothing of it, thought it was a cop for a second, but thats it. I then noticed that the car behind me was basically following me. Ok, I guess they could be going anywhere. I call the guy when Iâ€™m close to his house and he says that there is someone looking at the car now. Well shit. He says to call back in 15 mins. Well I turn off to go in the general direction of the guys house and of course the white car that had been following me for an hour made the same exit as me. Now Iâ€™m positive it was the lady he was talking about. So I see a Dairy Queen and was going to eat there till I called the guy in 15 minutes. I turn into the parking lot and the white car pulls in right behind me! Iâ€™m like wtf, Iâ€™m not gunna eat here now. Then I see her pull up to a car. It was the car that was on Craigslist. They were doing the deal in this parking lot lol. Well ok, so i kinda circled around a few times and the car was pretty bashed up so I said fuck it and just left. I dunno if she ended up buying it or not and I never called the guy back.
[poker related] Anyways, 5:00 came around and I played a set of $12s for the first time in a couple weeks. The first set kinda sucked. Full of bad beats as usual. Itâ€™s really crazy how I have been running in the $12s the last month. I was about to fire up my second set, when something else came up and I wasnâ€™t able to play. I hate days that a bunch of things come up that just waste time and Iâ€™m not able to play poker when I want to. I took Courtney to work at 7:00pm and finally played my last three sets of games. They went ok. They were just full of crazy suck outs. My heads up matches went completely terrible also. Suck out after suck out. I should have won about five more than I did. I had the best hand so often with the guy crushed in chips, but they would would just beat me every time. It was really frustrating, but itâ€™s nothing I havenâ€™t been through before. I won my last game of the night and I was very happy about that. I guess that made me think that I had made a lot more than I really did. I only made about five buy-ins. I am however pleased that I actually won and didnâ€™t lose so bad that I would be forced to drop down to the $6.50s again.
I feel like I belong at the $12 STT Turboâ€™s. I hope not to stay there forever, but I feel that I belong at higher buy-ins. People actually make plays that I can read and act like poker players that have some kinda clue. Itâ€™s nice knowing where Iâ€™m at vs. playing against the drunk reg donks at the 6.50s where you have no clue what they are pushing.
Iâ€™m starving and ready to be off this computer. Laterz
