I had a winning night

I think its been a few weeks now.

I won about $60 or so playing 50nl.

I finally got the 14000 full tilt points I wanted to get for the Scottevest ultimate hoodie. However, I'm not sure if I still want it. I forgot there was going to be a full tilt logo on it. Will I actually want to wear it outside? Is it easy to get the logo off? Not sure what I want to do.

Hopefully my downswing is over. Since March I've been running a bit poorly in NL, limt and tourneys. Somehow I'm down like 700 across 3 sites. 200 was from a shot at 1/2 NL. About 300 at 1/2 limit. The rest is 50NL 6max and some heads up.

I guess I should stay away from limit. I was pretty much break even raking up frequent player points when I had one night that was just horrible. Sets getting killed by flushes and straights left and right. My favorite hands are the ones like KQQ flop with AQ, turn A and then river K.

It is so much easier getting points playing limit, although most of the stuff in the store I can just buy without blinking an eye anyway. Not sure why I put so much value in it. I guess I just consider it free stuff and I like the sound of that. Of course my free stuff actually cost me a few hundred bucks in reality. As long as I have a net gain its still free in the long run right? Just a smaller per hour earn. I hope that consistently becomes positive again.

I also got the new tournament book by Rizen, Apestyles and Pearljammer today. Not sure when I'll get a chance to read it but I'm looking forward to it.
