Tuesday Thoughts

I have been wanting to play more Live Cash Games because I tend to do better at them than play the tournaments. Here at the Casino in town they like to play the $2-$20 and $2-$40 Limit spread. I am not a big fan of the two games but when that is what you have to learn on then that is what you have to do.

I am anxious to take a trip up to Spokane and visit the Casino NorthernQuest. There they have a $1-$2 game I would like to get involved with. It takes two hours to drive and with gas prices the way they are it makes that trip hard to make. I still plan on going up there on April 5 to play in the Seniors event. I know they will have some cash games going at the same time.

For those that know me you know when I play a game I am not doing it for the fun of it. I like to play the card game but if there is money involved then that is what I am after. I have done well and have basically lost my buyin only once so far in my time playing and I would like to keep learning. I have set goals for myself as well and hope to keep it going.

Last night was the first night of the venture. I want to play all four nights this week. My plan is to play with one buy in and my goal is to walk away with $50 for the week. I know that seems low but I want to start my goal low and work it up as I am getting to understand the game. My first night I walked away after 1 1/2 hours with $15. I want to play at least 1 to 2 hours at a time right now. Hopefully this will grow as time goes and I am feeling more comfortable at the table playing this spread game.

I did get a couple of good hands last night. I got AA once and was able to build the pot. I recieved 1010 and flopped a set when a 10 came on the flop. I did not play for any straights or flushes last night. I know that will have to come into play soon. Pairs and two pairs just don't make it in this game. You have to be willing to look for the higher

Bankroll: +$15

I read the next part of the Early Retirement Extreme and the next one that was dealt with was Cell Phones. This is something we have been dealing with for some time. We have been cutting back on the needs but are keeping up with the internet access since we do texting and keeping up with Facebook and Twitters. Do we need them? No, but I guess it is just one of those things we don't want to part with at this time. Our talking minutes is where we decreased the plan for now since we don't use the phone for talking.

We are nearing Tax time. I have our taxes done but have not sent them in yet since this year we owe the government. Next year will be different since I am not working.

Have a fun day......
