Well not really.Â That's just who bones called me today.Â I took it as a compliment :)
Anyways, I didn't get much poker in today at all.Â I only played four sets.Â I woke up later than usual because I watched three episodes of 24 last night.Â I gotta stop doing that.Â I'd rather get up early so I can look over the previous day's hands and get playing poker so I don't have to play super late into the night.Â Plus if I play earlier and something comes up during the day or night I will have most of my poker out of the way already.Â Today my dad took me out to lunch.Â Then I played four sets of tourneys.Â My mom called me at about 5:00 and wanted me to come over because my brother and his wife were coming over too.Â My bro just got back from San Diego Comic Con and he was going to tell us all about it.Â So I went over there for the rest of the night.Â Oh and I watched the WSOP on ESPN, which was kinda boring.Â It really puts a damper on my poker playing when my family wants to do things all the time.Â I never say no to them either.Â But I always put family first.Â Which is one of my better traits, I think.
Well, I only played 48 games today.Â I don't really want to look at the results because it's such a small sample.Â I think I did OK though.Â I ran really really really bad as usual, but I placed in quite a few tourneys.Â It's just stupid how bad I've been running in some spots.Â Oh, which brings me to another topic...Â
Another reg decided that he wanted to berate me again today.Â One that I have thousands of hands on.Â He only plays four tables.Â He plays really bad in some key spots.Â Like raising half of his 6bb stack on the bubble and folding to a reraise?Â I see him do this all the time.Â That's not all, I actually have this guy marked as a fish because I see him do dumb plays so often.Â Except today I looked at his stats and he's running 5% roi over 10k $12 stt's.Â I about never do plays that are this negative EV.Â He does them all the time.Â So of course I can basically say nothing when he says that he's made $3000 more than me in 6k less games.Â All I said is that variance is a tricky thing and I wouldn't be gloating about my results.Â It really pissed me off and it hurt my ego.Â I told him that I am going to pass him up soon, then I muted his chat.Â I have 1000's of tourneys that I have played and I didn't know the first thing about SNG strategy and only over the last few months have I started to beat them.Â So when people look at my total profit and see that I've only made $4k in 16k tourneys, they berate me.Â I've had two regs do this to me recently and when it happens in the middle of a downswing, it kinda sucks.
Talk to you guys laterz
