The Deep End

I lost it all at Paradise, and I couldn't care less. See, I'm swimming in the deep end now, so my little loss is a drop in the bucket. Let me elaborate.

I signed on last night to play some 2/4 poker at Paradise, with my remaining $28. I remember chatting with GCox and laughing about how my opponent (there was only one other player sitting at the table) had a mere $20. "G, he's only got 4x the BB! These losers are going to give me their money!" Now, I only had 7x the BB, but at least I have a high opinion of my skills. And besides, I didn't expect to lose. Heads up Limit is one of my 'specialties'. Well, I was up for a bit. But with only 7x the BB, it didn't take long before I was sent packing.

Packing to PokerStars, home of the $10 MTT I recently conquered. The 2/4 tables were much better there. I sat at a large table with 8 other players and fell into the same rhythm as my MTT win. Basically, I folded anything speculative. I wanted a good hand or nothing at all. I was up a little bit before I hit my quad aces (see the last post). When I walked, I was up $50 even, or $22 after the Paradise flub.

So, here is the thing. This 2/4 limit is a riot! I can afford it, which is nice. It is the type of stakes you may see in a casino (it is the lowest stakes in AC, generally speaking). Because it is online, it moves faster so you have a chance to win real money, as opposed to signing off up $10 and happy as shit to have done so well.

This is a new error, me boys. An error of money that matters. An error of common-place $50 nights. I know it's still new to me and I could just as easily lose $50 a night. But at least I'm playing with money that matters.

$200 has been removed for wifey Kim's use (read: TV). $200 may be removed again for AC (read: Christmas spectacular). But until then, I'm going to enjoy my swollen bankroll.

$800 might be a drop in the bucket for some bloggers, but this is new territory for me.

Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's SuperBankroll!

I feel you on the bankroll. I had my roll up to almost $1500 from the original $50, and then spent it all on a great trip to Niagara Falls.

I now am working my way back up from another $50. At $150 and rising. Keep up the good blogging.

I had my roll up to $4k until I didn't hit a few open ended straight flush draws...

Good luck but if I were you, I'd play 1-2 since 300x 2 is $600. Wait a minute, what the fuck am I saying, no I wouldn't. Lol.
