In other news, there's a nice write-up in today's Usa Today about the explosion of poker:
Same old kinda article with a few salient points ignored. Still is all good and I still feel like I'm in the right place at the right time regarding poker.
Ugh, speaking of that, I lost $60 last nite. Went nearly 80 hands without winning a pot at one point. Not much you can do there but suck it up and wait for the worm to turn.
I'm about 20 hands short of my bonus requirement. So regardless, it's been a free $100.
Oh yeah, almost forgot - big update on Party/Empire. You can search for certain criteria and also, they added the little sticky note thingy to designate that you have notes on players. Woooohoooo! People are also claiming they have fixed the lag in the single table tourneys but I'll have to see it to believe it.
Spent too much time on the phone last nite while playing. Damnit. Arguably, that's a big leak in my online game. It's far too easy to multi-task....I end up chatting on MIRC or Yahoo, emailing, surfing or making phone calls while playing. That's prolly cost me a lot of money. But on the other hand, I make it a point to play LL when I'm not paying attention. That way I can play ABC poker and not worry too much about any tricky, aggressive players. Once you delve into 5.10 limits, that's when you really need to be aware of who plays how....
Been playing a lot of Omaha Hi-Lo with my Turbo Software. Been devouring SuperSystem and voraciously reading all the strategy columns I can find on it as well. Very good stuff - I'll be tackling the LL Omaha games very soon...I enjoyed Stud hi/lo a TON on Party....
Random poker thought: I used to call a poker game called Wiffleball back in our home game (pre-hold em days) that was based on Baseball but I'll be damned if I can remember what the rules were.
