ThePokerDB.com did a slight redesign. It looks nice and it will work well with their new features (some of which haven’t been released yet).
Steve is in Australia. If you’re lucky he’ll post an update after he visits one of the local casinos and steals all the local’s money.
I haven’t been playing much poker, although I did lose $10 on Monday night the slowest poker game in history. The guys I played with were funny, but damn were they slow. I never really paid attention and ended up throwing chips away at stupid times. They probably thought I was pretty bad. Maybe I am. But I doubt it.
If you’re wondering why updates are coming slowly, swing by my other blog. I’ve been focusing on adding more content to it and this site has been less of a priority. But it will start getting regular posts soon, just as soon as Steve gets back from the land down under.
Poker for leisure
While most of the time I’m playing poker the goal is to make maximum profit and get that profit back into my bank account there are times when I play poker just for the fun of it. One of my roommates made a big cash last year for over $2000 in one tournament and since then only plays for fun. He never went up in limits and still plays the $5 SNGs with my other roommates just for a nice break from school work. I decided to take a one week break and not play as much or as seriously for two reasons: 1) Poker has not been as fun lately, and I find myself less willing to open Pokerstars, and 2) I have 3 finals coming up next week and I need to focus on my schoolwork! visitez le site
I’ve taken most of my bankroll off of pokerstars and left myself $40 to mess around with in the next week just playing what I feel like, nothing too demanding or stressful. This quarter in school has been a very good one for poker. I’ve cashed $2,600 total in-the-bank profit from Pokerstars this quarter and with that money I am traveling to Australia over winter break to visit my girlfriend, paying my parents back for some school related stuff, and now I don’t have to worry so much about money in general, so I think I can say I deserve a break (Plus my roommates keep threatening to call that 1-800 gambler’s anonymous line for me, haha).
After break and my trip to Australia I will gear back up for poker, and my girlfriend told me we can spend a day at the casino in Brisbane, Australia since you only have to 18 to drink and gamble down there so I’ll keep you all posted on how that goes. Off to study!
