Let's start playing

I have spent the last week either in bed or in the hospital having surgery and have been trying to recoup and rest.

I waited til tonight to get started with playing poker with somewhat of a clearer mind than the last few days. I play on FT and PS and will go back and forth depending on where I want to play. I will usually play in the $2 HU or the SnG's. I have spent a lot of time going over Heads up play from HeadsUpPro and watching the videos from Jonathan Little. I have a hard time staying with one type of play. Oh, and I do play live at the local Casino. In fact I am supposed to play in the Tournament of Champions on Sunday. I won a monthly tournament which allows me to play with all of the other champions. This is my fourth month in a row playing in this tournament which means I have won a tournament in each of the past months. I am hoping not to miss this one.

Tonight I played in three tournaments. The first was a 9 player SnG and I went out in 7th by playing way to aggressive to start out. I know better than that but that was my first tournament in over a week. The second one was a HU tournament and I won that one. The player was overly aggressive and I just waited to get some good cards and won it real early on. The third one was a 27 player SnG and I worked it down to getting in 6th place. On the bubble of getting paid for the tournament. Talk about not getting cards and trying to play position was not working either. I did something right by getting down to the bubble but couldn't pull off the double up I needed.

I am a person that is a Type 2 Diabetic and I just started on the Insulin Pump over a week ago. I was diagnosed in 2001. My doctor was suprised I moved so fast with this process. Of course this runs in my family.

Hopefully I can keep you up to date on my play and trying to build my bankroll. I will usually play 1 to 3 games a night if I can. I will let you know how I am doing with my diabetes. For me it is a way of life and I don't put myself down for having this disease.

I may even talk about my work life a little bit. I work on computers all day. I have been working on my A+ Certification. Maybe some day I can take the test and get it done.
