Time Time Time

No time to do anything lately but work. Hopefully after next week when we launch a few new websites. My wife and I have been furiously working to get some money saving websites up so check back at the end of next week :)

I haven't gotten to play a whole lot lately but I managed to play in the tourney last night. I was playing extremely well and was in top 3 in chips for most of the way. About 15 players left and I had 7300 chips with 200/400 blinds. I was 2nd or 3rd in chips. UTG raises to 800. I have KK on the button, I reraise to 2800. UTG pushes for his remaining 2400 chips. I call and he shows 55. Turn brings a 5 of course and I am crippled. Sigh. I ended up finishing in 9th place. Oh well.

That's about it for now. I haven't even had time to do any reloads this month. May the flop be with you!

Ice is slippery and PokerFantasy is my friend

Subtitled: The bad, the good and the worse.

Saturday night I was playing on PokerFantasy and managed to lose 3 straight buyins plus I didn't cash in a $30 tournament. So I was down $105 in a couple hours. I came back on a couple hours later and saw my favorite guy who loves to throw money around. Now its 4 days after the fact so I don't remember all the details (sorry been a long few days which I'll explain in a minute) so when all was said and done I turned my $25 into $160 at that table, most of which I won off this one guy. I managed to take $60 off him in one shot when I had 2 pair to his top pair and then a few minutes later when I was pretty sure he was tilting, he bluffed $25 into a $4 pot when I had AJ on a J8244 board and I called :)

So PokerFantasy has been good and it got better yesterday when I finally received my PlayStation Portable :) yay PSP! I haven't had much time to use it yet...I don't even have any games for it yet.

The bad: Been too busy trying to get work done and Sunday my mom managed to slip on the ice and break her ankle in 2 places. So we were at the hospital all day and my mom had surgery at nice so they could repair it and put screws in or whatever. Last couple of nights we've been working 13 or 14 hours a day trying to get a few websites up by the end of the month.

That's about it from here. Hopefully there will be more poker talk soon but I haven't had any time to play lately. May the flop be with you!

Just found this site tonight. It is a search engine that uses google's search but random people win prizes. No signup or anything. After you search for something the results page will tell you if you won. I think 10 searches per day are allowed for the shot at a prize. They basically use the money off google adwords and other advertising to give out prizes as an incentive for people to search there. Also if you refer people and they win something, you win the same thing. They have ipods, psp, visa gift cards, movie tickets and a couple other things up for grabs.

PokerFantasy goodness

Pokerfantasy is still treating me well. Too bad Golden Palace isn't. I received my shipment notification for the PSP yesterday yay! Time to spend some of my PSO points and get games and a memory stick.

Last couple of days at PokerFantasy I've made +87 and +56. Unfortunately that is partially negated by -60 at Golden Palace. I started out well on a 2/4 6 max table then got hammered. I also played a 2/4 full table and my 2nd hand at the table I got an open ended straight flush draw against a preflop raiser who i had position on. I capped the flop, bet the turn hoping he'd lay down but no love for my draws and I was down almost 20 right off the bat. Couple that with a few TT and JJ hands that got squashed by overcards and it wasn't fun. Such are the swings though. Monthly total is around +160...nothing exciting ....yet. Hopefully I'll get bump that up in tonight's tourney on Pokerstars.

That's all for now. May the flop be with you!

Week 1

Not very exciting this week. Haven't been playing all that well and been focusing more and getting work done. I did finally finish up the 2500 points at PokerFantasy and I've ordered my PSP :) It says it can take up to 10 days to process the order. Let's hope that it doesn't take that long and shipping is quick :)

No love in my tournament play this week. I reraised a LAG all in with QQ only to have the chip leader reraise with AA and knock me out in 5th when top 3 get paid. I finished 27th in the PSO freeroll for $13. I played the $100,000 Party tournament which cost me 20k party points but I finished around 600 of 1800 when I bluff checkraised like an idiot and the guy had AA.

Been mostly playing $25NL and had a couple bad days which i lost a couple hundred but I've made that back up. I'm about +88 for the month there. Unfortunately I lost $50 on 2/4 6max at Golden Palace. So slightly ahead still but a long ways to go this month. May the flop be with you!

Happy New Year - 2005 in review - 2006 wishes

Happy New Year to everyone and goodbye to 2005.

My goal for December was to reach $2000. I was around 1100 as of Friday and didn't think I had much of a chance to get closer. But lo and behold I found a way. I received the $100 bet365 bonus and pokerfantasy was very good to me. Besides winning a couple hundred on the tables, I also decided to play a $500 added $30 tournament. Only 10 people entered so it was a nice $800 prize pool. I managed to finish second for a $240 payday on New Year's Eve. This gave me a nice $340 New Year's Eve which makes for my best single day ever and in turn gave me my best month ever :)

December Totals:
Profit: $1006.16
Bonuses: $600

Total: $1606.16

2005 Total: $9015.86

I am about 2100/2500 points for the PSP at PokerFantasy as well :)
