I am not good at making up titles for the blogs. As you can tell I make them very short and not to any point. I do the same thing with my emails. Why say everything in the subject line when you are going to write about it anyway. I usually will just put the date in the subject box and leave it as such.
Last night was the tournament at Jokers Casino. I don't know what happened. Maybe because I am still hurting from the procedure of last Friday or just not in the mood to sit and concentrate on Poker. I did start out trying to win pots when I didn't have the cards. I don't think I got any type of cards last night that you would consider premium. I did have pocket 4's at one time and did win the pot in a showdown. Nothing seemed to work. I was able to stay afloat last night and worked it down to the bubble of the final table. Talk about a struggle.
I am going to try and go to Island's Casino today and play in a tournament there. I haven't been to that one for awhile. It is a nice place to play and the space is bigger than Jokers Casino. Maybe change it up a bit and play with a different group of people.
I have also been toying with the idea of trying to do what Daniel Negreanu is doing and play a live game and try to grow a bankroll. I would start with $10 and play until I reached a certain amount and then that would allow me to go to the next level. If a pro can do it why can't an amateur. It would mean playing more live and not so many tournaments. I think it would be fun to try and I can update here as well where I am at in the process. My first level will be $0.01-$0.02 and will not move up in level until I get to $25.
My sister came over for a one day visit. I was thinking why do that? Drive over and then turn around and drive back the next day. Then it hit me that Cindy and I do the same thing but we do it all in one day. It was nice to have them here and to be able to visit our parents and our family.
The remodel is going well. The bathroom tileing is almost done and the bedrooms are close to getting ready for paint. Carpet is being looked at for the bedrooms as well. So much going on and I just try to stay out of the way.
Next week I go back to work.
