Back to Back

I have quite a lot to write about, let's start with


I am on such a ridiculous heater, and am loving it. This is the first time ever I have had back to back 5k days. The only downside to me running so well, is that I am not putting in the amount of volume I wanted to for the leaderboard. I'm not complaining though :)

Here is the graph of today's heater -

I was thinking about my future at super turbos. Unless Full Tilt adds a higher buyin level, this is as good as I can ever hope to do, which is not fun to think about. At every other type of poker I have played, there was always a higher level that I could aim for or look forward to. I guess I could always go back to PLO or even try some regular turbos for a change. I was chatting with James Akenhead in one of the super turbos, and asked him if had thought about higher buyins. He said that he had already suggested it to Full Tilt. Even for people who don't want to play higher than 169s, having a higher buyin would help them since a lot of the good regs and red name pros would move up.

Overall Profit after day 6: 15,587
Leaderboard: 7th with 5400 points, leader is at 7500


I think I might play less poker for the next couple of days. I am recording the final round of the Chevron World Challenge which I will watch sometime tomorrow. I also plan on playing golf in the next couple of days. I haven't played in a couple of months, and am getting the itch to play again. My handicap was 5 at one point, and now it's 8, because I have lost a ridiculous amount of distance. I never used to hit the ball far to begin with, and now I hit the ball as long as a 11 year old. I really need to practice, but am lacking the motivation after college golf.

Blog Contest?

I thought of an interesting idea for a contest for people who read this blog. It involves free money, guesswork, and flips. I sent an email to Full Tilt to confirm that this is fine with them. Once they give me the green light, I will post details here. Expect that in the next few days!
