I'm thinking that this weekend needs a trip to Trump. Yup. That's what it needs. I don't think it will be Friday, though, as I have to go in to work early, and have meetings all day, and by the time I'm done I anticipate that I will be pulling my hair out and in no condition to play poker. We'll see.
I finally piddled away the last of my money on PokerStars, playing SnG's. So much for that fifty bucks! Though it did last me a good couple months... I need to do something about my online game. Regroup somehow. The "somehow" part is what's elluding me. I have a little money over on Full Tilt but I don't want to touch it until I figure out how not to lose it.
Seriously - I had a nice 4 month stretch or so where I was making money hand over fist online (on FTP). Before that, zilch. $50 rebuys, one after another. After that run? Zilch (though after that June rush, I've played very little online and instead have played more at Trump). Is it that buying in for the minimum $50 isn't enough to get started? I seem to build it up to $100 or 150 and then, poof. A couple bad days and it's gone.
I guess it's hard to follow the 5% of your bankroll max buy in rule when you only start with $50.
Ahh well. I'm not all that concerned. Honestly I like playing live better, but I can't deny the wonderful convenience of playing online (and the awful inconvenience of living an hour away from the poker room).
If any of you Chicago locals plan to be at Trump this weekend, give me a holla' yo!
