It's been exactly 2 weeks since my last posting, and things have been going a lot better. I feel like I'm playing pretty decent, but I can always single out a hand in a given session that I misplayed, making a bad call, missing a bet, etc. There's ALWAYS room for improvement, even when you're running ok.

I've been running pretty well overall, but I've had a TON of sessions where I "only" make 1-2 buyins because I got stacked on a bad beat or a total setup. I can't complain though because a majority of my big hands are also holding up, so I guess it's pretty much evening out. I'm just looking for that elusive session where everything goes right and I make 5-6 buyins in an hour or whatever. I have ~50K hands of 200NL under my belt and sadly the best session I ever had was +4 buyins. I suppose part of that comes from my tight style, and not getting involved in pots as often, but I've definitely had a few sessions where if I didn't get shit on by a bad beat or two, I would have been there. Anyways, like I said, I'm not complaining.

Here's my numbers over the last 2 weeks:



I was reading on 2+2 the other day about the state of online poker with the UIGEA, and it is kind of depressing. By no means am I a dominant 200NL player, but I'm beating the game for a good amount, and supposedly 200NL is WAY tougher than it was say 2 years ago. I saw one guy say that 200NL now is equivalent to what 600NL was 2 years ago. I don't know enough about it to say whether or not I agree, but that's a kick in the nuts if it's true. It's hard not to think about what it would be like if I had started playing poker a few years earlier. Most of the American players I play with are at least somewhat competent regulars, and most of the US fish are now gone. Still, I do occasionally run into players like this:

That "pot odds" comment is awesome.


I'm fired up for the NFL Draft this weekend. Big day for my Titans - we have lots of holes to fill, so let's hope our new GM can handle himself. Thanks to the PacMan Jones debacle, the Titans have taken a HUGE step back this offseason. He singlehandedly won 2 games for us last year, and he played a big role in a lot of other wins. He is basically irreplacable. With the schedule the Titans have this year, I'd be shocked if they could match last year's 8-8 record. We need to shore up the D-line on saturday, and get some weapons for Vince.

GO RAPTORS

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us and as we let our own lights shine we unconsciously give other people permision to do the same
