In commemoration of the season finale of Lost, I lost some money! I surrepticiously played some quick 1/2 action early last night while fiance Kim was on the phone with one of her friends. It was surrepticious because I told fiance Kim that I was going to take a night off. I should have followed my own advice, because I gave up about $15-20. I made some great laydowns, including folding an overpair on the river after betting the entire way. The river matched the low card on the board, and there were four players still in the hand. Some schmuck must have stayed in with that low pair, and probably made trips. I didn't want to fold, but when one player bet out and another called, I knew my goose was cooked. I folded TPTK, and the bettor showed his trips. Of course, it sucks that he hit trips on the river. But that will happen. It is up to me to avoid giving him any more of my money when it happens.
On a separate note, I have not played a game with fellow poker degenerates Robbie Hole or Rouss in some time. I've been very busy with family obligations lately, and I haven't spoken to the guys recently either. Come to think of it, I haven't spoken to a lot of people. Once I am done with this weekend (chock full of a distant cousin's bat mitzvah and fiance Kim's friends wedding), I'll have to change that. Make some calls, do some drinks, and if poker is a possibility, that too. The three of us are going to AC of June 5th (thanks to a free room at Resorts), so that is also coming up. Thank god, because this self-imposed exile is starting to make me stir crazy.
Not much in the way of poker, I know. But all in due time.
I got an email from some dude who wants to advertise on my site. I was flattered, but in order for me to get anything out of it, I'd have to provide players for some online casino or another. I don't know if I have the pull or the readership for that, so as of now, I'm asking questions of the ad guy before making any decisions.
If anyone is playing on Noble Poker, let me know your screenname and maybe we can meet up and kick some poor unsuspecting table's ass. I'm liking the site. I'm not sure how I feel about the players though. NP bankroll is now in the mid-to-high 70s. I also have to consider when to withdraw my funds. I need to start chalking up some wins, because I am behind my goal of $100 in profit per month. I know it ain't much, but its a goal I can reasonably hit without playing limits that I cannot afford.
That's all(-in) folks.

You already know my screen name (GCox25) as you were whipping my ass in the blogger freeroll. I am not a blogger, just a reader, but have been tearing up the .25/.50 no limit tables on Noble. I've been playing for about a month and the tables there are treating me very well.
Look me up.

Monday...I am starting the limit challenge. I am going to keep track of my time spent playing. Hour by Hour, but if you want to do the challenge. We can just say first to top is winner??? Who knows how long that will take for me...1675 is the total amount needed to earn...thats before the withdrawls from each level. Sound good? I trust you so I am not goint to request all your hand histories and account details to prove it, just some of them. Just kidding. How about 25 to the winner, braggin rights until the next challenge and loser must rename blog for two weeks to the winners choice of name.
Sound good? SteelerJosh is a no go cause he was started already on his own personal challenge...and is doing quite well.

Hey Gary, I'll keep an eye out for you on Noble. Its good to know that my move paid off. Although, the only reason why I noticed you were more aggressive was because you pushed me around on a couple of hands after my bluffs. Thanks for posting. Hopefully, you and I can tear up the Noble limit tables...
Which leads me to DNasty. Game on! There is only a couple of wrinkles to work out. The only $$ that I have online is in Noble right now. I have about $70-80 there.
So, do I play on Noble (we don't necessarily need to play on the same site)? If I do, how do we start evenly if I have more than the requisite starting $? I am more than happy to open an account or deposit elsewhere where we can both start with the same amount (is it $25 or $50?). Otherwise, I can just find out my current balance and either withdraw or mentally subtract the extra money and go up levels accordingly.
What do you think DNasty? I'm cool with whatever. And you can trust me. I might be a lot of things, but a cheat and a thief I am not...just ask my probation officer.

Any site is cool, I am going to stick to UB. I think I have more than 50 in there, but I am going to keep 50 for this and the rest mentally subtract. So start with 50, just remember, should be limit not NL. I will send you my Spreadsheet again tomorrow, and give an example of how I am keeping track.
