Dec 22/10 Rank 760

By: Onadar @ 09:04 (EST) / 148 / Comment ( 0 )
 Yeah i said 760, trying to chipup with made hands on the flop, losing to one card higher straights, and pokerstars favorite one card flushes. Very hard to combat complete stupidity and heroism. Being the hero is hitting the 2 outer, to show how good at poker you are.
 I am trying to bankroll from nothing, i do it every winter as a hobby, once i go back to work i don't have time, or i am not around to enter the tournies i want to play, they are running or full by the time i get home.
 I have changed a few things around, the first being i got rid of the function that shows me my folded cards. That was driving me nuts, once folded i would bring it up and watch hand after hand make str8's and flushes that would have won so many hands, chips crossing tables on a pair of twos. Yet when i enter a hand a made full house is outraced, makes no sense to me, how bad play is constantly rewarded, patience is supposed to be a poker man's bread and butter. So i will no longer be checking any of my folded cards.
 The second thing i am not going to worry about my rank as much as i have been. One bad hand and i am already thinking oh yeah, this is screwing up my rank. As a whitestar i would have to break the top 100, not impossible, but i think inprobable.  i would pretty much have to play in every single tourney and place the rest of the month. I had wanted to at least make the $3 cut, so i had some cash to play in FL small limit games if there wasn't a freeroll on when i could play.
 The goal is a small bankroll so i can play whenever i want and not wait for freerolls all the time. I lost sight of that getting caught up in moving up the ranks. I do like just playing and not checking those mucked cards, and for the most part i just love playing, seeing flops, reading boards,  making calls people think are nuts, because i really believe i am not overrun. Some days i can tell you card before people turn them over, actually i like trying to guess when i am not playing, but then i have to play only one tourney at a time. I usually play 3, in four i can recognise betting patterns or even realize i have been changed tables and the guy in seat three isn't the maniac anymore etc.
 I want to enjoy poker again, if pso gets me a few dollar for that, so be it. With a bankroll i would also like to start private games, i run a game every thursday on another site, even had a regular professional who stopped by. i would like to even if it is a $1 game ( that was minimum on other site) and get 100 of the best players here together once a week, Get rid of the bullshit players and have a really good game of poker for a couple of hours, that would be nice.
 Heh let me get bankrolled first though, hope to see you on the felts
