burm certainly wasn’t the only one I’ve seen playing a loose game recently, but he has been one of the worst I’ve seen lately. Note to burm PLEASE SIT AT MY TABLE EVERYTIME. Actually, the last 2 days I’ve played, I haven’t played real well. I made some good calldowns but some of the loose play I’ve seen has gotten me to play less than optimal against a lot of the other good players. Basically, I haven’t been playing real well the last few hundred hands which has made me a slight loser over those sessions. Count with that the cold deck I had at the beginning of the month, and you get the $250 I’m stuck for the month.

I don’t feel real bad about that though since I know I can easily make that up with even a modest winning session. I’m not gonna get my panties in bunch over that. It’s still been fewer than 2k hands too so I just need to step it up, play better and take good player notes for the rest of the month. Hopefully I can run a bit better and make a decent month out of it.

I leave you with this hand. I really need to win more hands with Q high on a raised flop.

Rake Race Update: Finally I show up on the list at 86/100. Only top 50 get paid, but since I started a week behind every one else, I should be doing alright by the end of next week and we’ll see where I wrap up at the end of the month.
