Over the last month or so I have been playing really lousy - perhaps more than just the last month - whatever. This is not a case of the cards treating me bad, but rather just my play being way off. I find I am making mistakes that I know I shouldn't make. I don't have the patience I know you need. I could make a list, but it is not relevant.
I don't play as often as most the people I play regularly with (all you bloggers and blog readers) but I still play more than enough - certainly many many times a week. I orginally wrote this about a week and 1/2 ago. Right after the last WWdN:Not. And never posted it.
I did however take a little time off and missed out all the fun this week.
I played one of those double shootout tournies to the Sunday Millions on stars last week and still managed to make a donkey move to go out in 3rd when I called an all-in with Ax (lousy kicker) against a flopped set of 7s on a Ax7 flop. Oops - donkey isn't gone yet. I continued to stay away some more and then played a $5+0.50 MTT on Pokerroom last night and did alright. I finished in 61th place of 381 (top 40 payed) but at least I felt I played right and knew what I was getting into when I went all-in, shorted stacked with AQo. The chip leader, who called my all-in had 99, so I was happy with a race at that point. (Of course he flopped a 9 which he didn't need, but at least I was happy with my play.)
So other than my regular Sunday live nickel and dime game, I have only played twice. I plan to continue at this rate til Thursday when I will rejoin you to celebrate the WWdN:Not the MiamiDon Invitational!
