I haven't felt this way in a long time. Sure I've been tired before, but it's been a while since I stayed up too late playing online poker even though I knew I had to get in work early the next day. Ugh.
I started out playing a $2 (10) person one table. It took forever. We probably played 3 handed for almost an hour but in the end I won 1st place. When that was done, I found Tony at a Omaha H/L .25-.50 cash table, joined his waiting list and finally got in. I probably played 3 hands the entire time I was there but won or split them all so I made about $4 at that table. And then, onto those Double or Nothing tables. I'm not really sure I like the double or nothng game. It does go pretty quickly as once you are down to 5 peeps it's game over.
I was playing one of the DoN games with Tony at my table. And of course it was this game that I lost and early too. I called a standard raise with A-J and the flop was J-4-7 rainbow. He bet, I raised, he jammed all in. So I call. I was up against cowboys. Ugh. From there I went from short stacked to out. I was playing another DoN at the same time, and cashed in that, so they kinda cancelled each other out.
I must say online poker is fun, even though I'm playing at such small stakes. I hope to keep the stakes very small and just try to increase my balance slowly, baby steps.
At this point, Sugar Bear was begging me to watch some tv show about weird inventions (they seemed like a complicated version of the game Mousetrap) in his room. Ugh. Since I'd been ignoring him for the past 2-3 hours I agreed. I must've fallen asleep pretty quickly though. (tv shows about inventions are boring!) I woke up at like 4am in his bunk bed all scrunched up. Good thing I have coffee - a big cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee. That'll wake me up.
Ohhh!!! Big News! Have I not told you that I am now the proud (very proud) owner of the Kindle Fire!?! Well I have one! Woot! Except, I haven't set it up yet because.....it intimidates me. I was waiting for a certain Gentleman to come home from his annual Christmas pilgrimage and maybe he'd teach me how it works. :) I think it's the least a gentleman can do. I'm not even sure what the Kindle will do, besides be an e-reader. I think I can check my email on it too, which would be way cool, as my phone doesn't have that capability. Anyhoo, we shall see. I hope to actually open the box before 2012.
