Thought I would make an early blog this week.

I had said that getting a new laptop should mean more playing poker and I have.

Though I started off bad. As a friend was visiting and being on the same network, couldn't play in the same tournament. So while he played in a dollar one, I took on a $10 one and lost pretty quick. But it's luck, of cards, can't tell people to not shove when they push n pray.

So then I went down to a $3 tournamant, and didn't to well with that either.

So I did a $4 O8b and crashed about 20 people from the bubble.

Wednesday night was tired and Friends and family tournament. I donked out of that.

But tonight was the biggest night of poker.

I did $1.10 Don(t) (Double or Nothing (turbo)). I managed 18 of them in about 3 hours. 4 at a time at the most. Bankroll was down to $71.38. Winning 50% of them had me end with $72.88 bankroll.

I know not a lot...but I really want to play more and do better. I'm hoping to at least play in one of the WCOOP events on PokerStars. The lowest event is on September 11th for $109. I really want to be in it.

Anyway, my friend that left Wed. is coming back for another visit Tomorrow and spending the week. At which I am off after Sunday's shift for a week vacation. The plan for vacation is to grind away for 8-10 hours or so and maybe study what I did.

Well an hour past bedtime, so time to get that rest to play some poker when my friend gets in.

Sorry Sports fans. I realize it's been 3 weeks since I've posted. But my little playing as really been pretty insignificant.

Skipping the first week, lost what I played.

2nd week: Had a good weekend actually. Cashed in weekly 30K ($9), and took on the responsibility of being a bounty in PokerStars Twitter League tournament. Which led to my second cash in 2 seaons. (Yes, when I'm the bounty.)

At the same time of Daleroxxu's (Twitter: @Daleroxxu) Hyper Turbo No Limit Omaha H/L Shoveament Freeroll. You can watch here:

In which I took third and knocked out the host. The knockout earned me a Sunday 1/4 Million ticket. I plan on using it September 5th at the end of a week of vacation. I should be plenty rested and no work the morning of it. My only hope is not to be to burned out on poker by then. Ah well, one can only hope.

This last week has been nothing for me. Some small, minor wins on single tournament tables. But the weekend was a big loss overall. I don't know why I played a $.50/$1 Ring game. Dropped $40. I guess I should have ran when I won a hand and was up $12.

A friend is visiting from out of state. Got in Saturday, leaving Tues or Wednesday morning (probably the latter).

I got my laptop on Friday. And his new one, to replace his old, broken one. So we have been messing around with them. Figuring out features and such. First thing I did was check out WLM for work and then second thing was download PokerStars.

Well, that's all I can think of at the moment.

So hope to post next week at the begnining of my vacation, and of course after.
