I got home last night and played 3 games from 8:30 - 10:30 pm. At the end of this session I left with a net win of $295. Wheeee! (actually $294.50 but I like rounding up)
I played a $33 (9) peep game and came in first place. Heads up was touch and go but I perservered. Because I appeared tight my opponent was "all in" every hand, which left me folding every hand - till the last one. :) Imagine his surprise when I called his all in with A-10 sooted. I was up against the mighty J-10, and had the feeling I was sunk. Alas, I was not. :) Cost $36, won $148, which is a net win of $112.
Then I played SmBoatDrinks' $5 Booze Cruise. Fun little tourney; Omaha High Low, with maybe 8 peeps. I immediately situated myself as chip leader and shortly thereafter donked off all my chips to some dude I don't know. Blah. Cost $5.50, and lost. Net of -$5.50. But a donation to my boy Boaty is priceless.
Third game was a $55+5 (9) peeper. I got a little short stacked early and doubled up shortly thereafter to become the slight chip leader. Played (6) handed for quite a while and then I took out Mr. 6 and Mr. 5, so I was the extreme chip leader when we were 4 handed. With a stack that size there was no need to play until the donks took one of themselves out, which happened soon enough. I ended up WINNING FIRST PLACE here as well. Cost $60, won $248ish, which is a net win of $188.
$112 - 5.50 + $188 = $294.50 = $295!!!!!
In other news, I'll still not quite there healthwise. I have a lingering cough and do not feel 100%. I haven't been eating well, nor have I been exercising lately. I'm going to focus on health this weekend. I have a bunch of healthy new recipes that I want to try out. Plan is to go healthy food shopping this weekend so there are good options for the week and start exercising again.
Healthy body + healthy full tilt account = Happy Josie
For some reason it's usually one or the other with me. I'll like to try for both. I want it all. Hell, who doesn't, right?
Sunday night is the next Survivor Poker game. I have been so humbled by my results in this little game that it's time to shut my mouth and focus on winning. I need to pretend there are big dollahs on this game, maybe that'll help.
