Well i certainly have played a lot more deepstacked poker in the past month than ive played my entire life. (by deepstacked poker im referring to all the times ive had over $500 on the table in the $1-2 NL). for a while, i thought it was helping me have bigger wins. (it was). it can also help u have bigger losses.
But after Saturday nights $800 loss, i dont think its a good idea anymore. i never should be carrying that much cash on me, and i sure shouldnt have 10% or more of my lifes savings on the table. Poker Kats idol, Chris Ferguson (looks just like him) said to not ever put more than 5% on the table. to me that is even much too high and id prefer 1-2%. he is thinking about people who can go broke multiple times and get back into action selling off things they own for $5-50k repeatedly.
Vince told me he got a piece of mail from terribles fernley that i have $100 in free play til the end of april but i cannot find a ride yet. theres no bus.
The BBJ hit at the atlantis tonight while i was playing at the Peppermill. im sure the game was shorthanded but its not really more than a few hundred players share. reno tends to keep jackpots small and pay out high hands instead which is good.
also tried sitting in the $3-5 NL for a while tonight too, and that didnt work out either. i min bought for $200 and flopped a set on a flop of 568 with 2 clubs. an asian guy bet $25 and i made it $85 with $102 behind. (how was my bet sizing there, not that it made a difference). turn comes 4 and he puts me allin and i felt pot committed to call the other $100, he had 87. and i missed the boat on the river.
found out that Bovada has a way to play online cash games from your cell phone, which i never knew about til i seen another guy at the table playing on Bovada. dont expect to be able to chat on it, or play sngs or tourneys. its strictly for cash games or zone poker games. its NOT the application u would think from looking at the apple store, (thats a sports bet application). its going thru the website WITHOUT downloading. be aware its not easy to see the small type of the suits to know if u have a flush if u dont have excellent eyesight.
i made a 3.30pm tues dentist appt and i hope i wake up in time to keep it. its only for a complete xray of the entire mouth (not just the one area). $100, and its with the dentist Karen likes. im afraid to have them do any work since they dont offer any sedation. i really need to know which tooth, for the tooth where i had the pain the 2 previous nites (but not last nite thank God) was in the area of the tooth on the far upper right side where its slanted jagged on the bottom, etc. The thing that really scares me is its the first time in ages somethings been extremely sore. and i feel possible soreness in the gums up there when i feel around with my finger.
Remember i still have the May 15 appt at the oral surgeon. i could just wait til then, give them a new xray from the other dentist and then it cost me about $1500 maybe instead of $700-800 to be put to sleep if its multiple teeth or a wisdom tooth also. i still need someone to go with me to that appt or they will refuse to service me.
at the earlier $1-2 table tonight where i lost the first $110, i got pissed off once when a guy with only $16 left bet $10 and left $6 behind. either bet it all or check dammit, i feel like u are suckering me into a call. i had 88 and made a small preflop raise. the flop came A96 all in clubs of which i had none. what did he most likely have? i folded.
