would like to begin this session with a hand i feel like i butchered badly. And also i shouldve left the Hardrock much sooner than i did. i got over there quite late last night and then wasted over 2 hours before i went in the poker room just sitting in the bathroom reading a book called "the Tehran initiative". The book was so good i couldnt put it down. so it was well after 1am when i got started playing, and i left not til after 7am, after id earned my 2nd $100 gas card which ill sell to anyone willing to pay $80 or more and its for Shell.
im at $11,602 which isnt too bad considering last week after paying the rent i was down in the $11,100s from the $11,500s. rents due every tues. of course the only reason for the upward progress is because ive not seen a dentist yet though ive been investigating who to see.
Ive passed 50 hours now of $1-2 NL at the hardrock (would have far more hours if it wasnt all the wasted time at $1-1 etc) and am still over $25 an hour for this cardroom, so this place does have good games. still at $15 an hour for 1400+ hours total since last april for $1-2 1-3. But when i got home today, i was up only $68 for the night instead of $237.
Good thing was i just won my $130 don sng i was forced to play online after losing 2 $50 don sngs last night before i got my bus. funny thing, a guy busted on the first hand u wouldnt expect that at that level.
ok --here's the hand history. a guy whose drinking and fairly new and loose and is black and under the opinion my $300+ on the table is "alot of money which hes going after" makes the straddle to $5 a few calls, and i call with KQ suited, he makes it $25, i call on the button, and i know i should reraise him, but i dont and i fear that was my mistake. because the other guy, whose an indian guy named Patel, and tight, calls along too and i mightve got him to fold 99, not entirely sure.
flop comes QQ9 and Patel shoves and the black guy folds. of course i call, and was shocked i lost. left as soon as the BB got to me with only $201. how could things have worked out better for me?
i almost went to see the dentist to give myself a birthday present but didnt. mom did get worried when i mentioned about my face and my fear of an abscess, but i guess i dont have one, that bumps no longer there so it must of been a zit. still this tooth really needs removed though, been let go way too long.
biggest problem seeing the dentist is not only fear, its the hours i keep, and that i need someone with me if i want to pay $200 extra to be "put to sleep"
i bought one new pair of pants at the walmarts yesterday along with groceries for $63 total. and i can never pass up a real grocery store without buying a pumpkin pie if they are cheap enough. and it was only $2.39 on clearance saying a day old and to eat by feb 12. ud be amazed also how much more good tasting strong wheat bread costs than cheap wheat bread thats too weak.
got all my laundry washed too 2 days ago so thats out of the way for about 3 more weeks or so.
