Played an hour and a half session. 2 Tables. Good start! Got lucky on a few hands and got rivered on a few. That’s poker!
Today will be my first day playing 6 max 10NL. I will post my progress here daily. I’m a US player. I play at Carbon Poker. I’ve been playing 4NL for about 2 months now. It’s been an up and down struggle. I purchased Holdem Manager, signed up for DC and I’ve made a few adjustments and 4NL suddenly became not too hard. Now I’m rolled for 10NL and I’m not looking back. I don’t really expect ther ... <a href="/blogs/fishyflop/92571-Goodbye-6-max-4NL-It-s-been-real-I-won-t-miss-ya-">(continued)</a>
Hi, To preface with a quick note – I used to post here under the handle ‘Dumas’ but changed it for my own idiosyncratic OCD reasons ;) Anyway, on with the blog. I’m actually just making an effort to return to poker, and by association the DC forums, after a couple-month long hiatus from playing – primarily on account of this: Following on from a smooth run at 5NL, getting crushed so comprehensively at 10NL was ... <a href="/blogs/zavodovski/90651-Break-Over-Back-to-Poker-">(continued)</a>
Ok so basically there isn’t a dull moment in my life lately. I just wish there was more positive moments. I started feeling pretty ill over the weekend flaring up a couple of times a day and being very tired. My face was getting more swollen and crusted by the day forcing me to take a train to Manhattan for an emergency appointment. I’m glad I took action as soon as I did because I have a staph infection in my face. The real ... <a href="/blogs/imill/60501-My-Car-is-Where-">(continued)</a>
Well I didn’t make what I definitely had a chance to make but I did receive good news from Nissan. According to the letter I only need to pay $2172 with a 15 day period from date of issued letter which is Feb. 25. That means the last day I have to pay this is Saturday March 12 which is awesome. Before I post my last graph and total I wanted to ask for honest opinions. I’ve been very honest about my situation and ... <a href="/blogs/imill/59621-C-R-P-C-Day-8-Officially-Over-">(continued)</a>
Just trying to clear my head. Need to forget about yesterday. Having a sweat session tomorrow. I do have some good news. A friend of mine is loaning me $300 so that definitely helps me out. Takes some weight off my shoulders.
So today (tuesday) I had to go to Manhattan to see a doctor who was going to do more extensive food testing on me. To make a long story short, she wasted my whole day asking me questions about something totally irrelevant and came up with a prognosis that if she were to take 5 minutes to read my medical records she would have seen I already tried it 2.5 years ago and it didn’t work. And I’m out $500. Soooo……I get home and fire up some tables. Some days you need to just take a day off.
I’m beginning to get embarrassed when I post these epic fails. I hope somebody is paying attention and maybe see some potential here. I posted some questionable hands and probably should put another one or 2 up but it’s late and I’m mad tired since I haven’t slept in the past 3 days. Seeing a different specialist tomorrow to take another test. As much as I’m taking poker and this challenge seriously I would trade it all to find answers to live a happy life. Deuces.
This is the reason why I’m still at 50NL. I get anxious and tilt and it’s the same old story. Today had all the makings of an epic session and I can’t grasp it. After the first big drop I took a break for a few hrs had dinner, etc. Then I come back and make a great all in flop call, and loose. Then I get it all in again w/AQ against an aggro blind, run into KK. And so it begins. I finally calm down and get a hold of m ... <a href="/blogs/imill/58731-C-R-P-Challenge-Day-4">(continued)</a>
A part of me should be upset for throwing a minimum of 2 buy ins early preflop w/suited gap connectors. It’s like no one can fold aces anymore preflop? Really? Anyway my early morning session ended on a positive note. My night session was stuck in neutral for the most part but I finally was able to break through. I played 5k hands today and made +4k in FPP. 5k more and I can buy a $100 bonus. Here are ... <a href="/blogs/imill/58631-Car-Repossessed-Poker-Challenge-Day-3-">(continued)</a>
