A Lil' Poker

I managed not to reload any cash into poker sites today. I haven't started twitching yet, but don't expect me to make it through the weekend. I'd like to size up my bills and iPod plans before reloading.

I made some wicked fake money playing Blackjack on my Blackberry before bed last night. I'm just learning how to play the game. I mean, I know the premise of blackjack, but never knew the guidelines of what to do when the dealer is showing this or that. So, I'm trying to learn that so I can play some blackjack during my Vegas trip in October. Randy tried teaching me last March when we were out there, but it was a sort of "learn as you play" lesson and I didn't take well to being criticized (or what I felt came across as criticism) in front of a bunch of people. So it didn't go very well. We should have done some talking about it BEFORE sitting down to the table. I'll do better next time (and won't get so bitchy at Randy. Sorry baby!)

Turning my attention to this evening... I'll be heading over to Scott's house in a little bit for a mini-Diamond game. Randy will come out to join the 2nd tourney after work. We're just playing a couple small games - I don't think there will be more than ten people there. A nice way to spend a Thursday evening, for sure.

I think I'm going to go read a random chapter out of the Theory of Poker book right now and see if I can apply it to my game tonight. Ya know - a little homework assignment, if you will. I have about a half hour to kill before I have to go get dressed...
