Well, I think I might have had an enlightened moment this week. In order to win at poker, one must play poker. ::Chuckles::

Between Monday after work and Tuesday lunch, I played 18 $1 Don = $19.80 I won 11 for $22.

On Thursday I played Some $1 9-person SnG. Started off 2 n 2. The wins, taking 3rd and 1st. I played 3 more to get $1 profit. I also tried an NAPT (North American Poker Tour) freeroll. 9,305 started, finished 849th.

Friday I tried to go a little different. After hearing that $1 rebuys were pretty good, I joined one and $3 rebuy, plus 2 $1.20 9-person. One of the $1.20 I lost, so started another. Got 3rd out of the three.

I'm not sure how much I put into the $3. More than I planned. My bankroll was down about $10. I did minimum cash in the $1... Spent $3 to get $7.89.

Today I did a couple freerolls. With a bankroll of $19...I managed to cash in one of them for $43. So now my roll is up to $62.

I also have a friend coming in to visit tonight. They are leaving Tues or Wed. So not sure I'll get much more playing in till Wed evening.

And on that note... if anyone has good, constructive criticism how I might make my blog better, I'm willing to listen. Should I write about anything or just keep it poker?

Well, haven't played much. Wednesday managed 3rd out of 17 in a $5 Friend & Family tournament. Sucked kinda, because I was in first for most of the tournament. But a $12 profit helped.

Friday I tried a $3+R tourney. I had the plan to not put much in. I rebought before it started and another $3 added on. 900 were got paid. Unfortunately, Mom Nature wasn't going to be nice... and a major storm was rolling in. I finished in the 1100 area when the button made a small raise and I had 66 in the big blind. I went all in, button called and showed TT. So I was out and before I could shut down the computer, we lost power to turn it off and let it flick back on.

Saturday morning on a whim, Joined a $2 Quintuple shootout. 64 places paid...and I made it to the min cash for $10.

I tried the $3 rebuy again. And didn't cash. I don't remember what I did, but think I was sucked out on.

Tonight I just tried a freeroll for the PokerStars Million Dollar challenge. Min raised AA and someone went all in. I called, they show 77. Table : AJ89T they make the straight and leave me with $114. BB was $150 so I was going to have to shove soon. 2 hands later, Had Ksomething and shoved. Called by QQ. K on flop put me ahead, but the Q on the turn knocked me out.

That's about all I have. Hope to have better news next week.
