Lots of swings the last few days. Back to $10,200 from $8900, (and keep losing the Bovada money and having to redeposit, further reducing the roll). then back down to $9500+ and finally $9700+.
Wondering if i'll ever start to feel again like ive really achieved success in life, like i did last fall when i passed the $15k mark, and was closing in on $20,000. the main difference between $20k and $10k is the freedom to travel, and being a lot more comfortable with $500-1000 on the table.
in other news ive had $500+ on the table a lot more times in the last few weeks than ive had in my life. Maybe WEC is correct about larger buyins wouldve gave me a bigger chance to make something out of my life years ago, before i got way too old for any women to love me.
passed the 2100 hour mark today and im still between $13.50 and $14 an hour.
theres a better freeroll promotion starting June 8 than the last time they had freerolls for hours played here at the Peppermill a few months back. Difference this time is top 40 out of 100 pay, and u dont have to win a shootout first to play the tourny. (its a normal tourny instead). u get chips based on hours and some will have only 4k chips, some 6k some 8k and some 10k. and the top 20 players in hours (always easy for me) will have 12k chips. first will pay $2500. 15th to 40th place pays $100. 2nd to 14th pay amounts in between i dont remember exactly.
it was quite a loose game today. both earlier and late. earlier a gypsy and his friend from cali were making loose action, then moved to Omaha. later on a black guy and his friend, also from cali were making the loose action. i beat the black guy more than once, he was in for quite a lot of buyins for large sized amounts. the pot i enjoyed the most was the one i bluffed with 44. i dont remember if there was a raise or not preflop and several of us seen the flop. (actually i remember almost nothing anymore). Flop comes up A35 with 2 clubs and i have the 4 of clubs. I check, he bets and i call. the others fold. turn comes K putting a 2nd flush draw on the board. again he bets and i call (hopefully representing a flush draw). river comes 7 of clubs for the possible flush. i grab a big stack of chips (most likely about $100) i never counted them. he starts thinking and i tell him i dont have the flush when showing him the 4 of clubs. (the intention was to convey i had the straight with 46 or 42). or for him to think i was lying. finally he mucks his A and i show him the 44 for nothing but a pair of 4s.
he kept saying how he believed me before i showed the bluff.
ive set up a drs appt for June 22, that was the soonest they could get me in and it will cost $120. its with a regular MD in his office, and ive got a lot of concerns about my health to ask him about. They couldve got me in at a later hour on June 25, but i didnt want it to interfere with lightnings visit so i settled for June 22 instead. at least i wont have to go to an urgent care place and be rushed in and out with 100 people in the lobby
also as quick as i am to get pissed off at the dealers when im stuck (particularly the 3 i always seem to lose very heavily at when they sit) im quick to forgive once im outta the hole.
