I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things this week. I will be traveling for work to San Antonio, and I hope to have quite a lot of opportunity to play, and similar opportunity to blog.
I've been hanging in there, but bad luck keeps jumping up to grab me at the least opportune times. KK losing to AK. Pairing my over on the flop, only to have the underpair set on the turn. You know the story.
I've also tried to loosen my game up and get involved in more pots and make moves, etc, etc, but I really think I'm at WAY too low of a level to be able to play a LAG style. In the $5 and $10 SNGs, it seems nobody can find the Fold button, no matter how much pressure you put on them.
All that said, I am currently up in every single facet of play for 2008. I'm tracking Live, Online Cash, Online SNGs, Online MTTs, and Online Misc (Shootouts, etc). Actually, I may have lied. I think I'm down in shootouts. But still, after being significantly down in SNGs for a long time, its nice to be showing a little bit of profit. Unfortunately my MTT stats have suffered because I can't catch a break, so even though I'm playing all facets profitably, the bankroll is still right about where it always is.
Incidentally, I'm off to a friends house tonight w/the wife for a couples game we like to have from time to time, so I'm looking forward to tossing around some real chips and cards and having some fun with friends. But I got my weekly website stats email and saw that my hits were in the single digits for the first time in quite some time, so I wanted to check in and let you know I'm not giving up or anything...just trying to get priorities in order a little bit. I intend on being around for some time to come.
Hope the felt is treating everyone well. Be back soon!
