Two Months Later...Again. WTF

Two months of goofing off, not posting updates, and here I am, at home taking a personal day because I manaaged to tweak my back real good.
Funny enough, I decided to play a "play money" tourney on Full Tilt and I'm at the final table. Go figure.
Hell, I'll even post a picture of it if I can remember how to do that.
Anyways, it has been a long time since I have been out here to post about anything.
Apathy more than anything.
Today, I'm sitting here, playing a little poker, and decided it was time to do some updating.
One thing I am doing is playing in the Full Tilt Poker Fantasy WSOP challenge. I'm doing rather well with that. I'm inside the top 2000 overall, and I have qualfied for three freerolls within the last week.
As a matter of fact, let me go and check on my rankings right now...wow, better than I thought. I have been ranked as high as 721st place. Right now I'm inside the top 1000 at 942nd. Fantasy earnings at $3,600,000 or so.
If only I had started playing this sooner...who knows.
Final table update - I'm down to the final four at my table.
I'm still only playing poker at Full Tilt. I have noticed that they have finally brought down their minimum deposit amount from $50 to $30, but that is still miles away from Poker Star's $10 bucks.
Final table finish: 2nd place. I had actually been down 10 to 1 in chips, fought back to take the lead, and then couldn't finish the deal. I had QJ against KQ and that busted me. Oh well. It was fun.
On the beer side of things - and this is also a beerblog - I am stuck on 599 sampled beers. I have not found a beer 'worthy' of me using it for beer #600. If I find it, I will let you know.
Okay, I'm going to get a shower and 'start my afternoon' now that poker is over. I will take a moment to checkup on a few old haunts (AlCantHang, Pauly & Mookie) and I will post again real soon.
Thanks for checking in. I promise to be here sooner than later.

Quick Monday Night Post


Quick post before I get to bed.

I just wanted to drop a line to 'fulfill' my duty to add a Monday night post.

I would have been here sooner, but I was out of town and did not get home til 9pm. 

Add to that 'unwind time' and I just now realized I was supposed to post something here.

More poker crap tomorrow, plus some beer updates.

I picked up six new beers to try and review on ratebeer.com, so I'll post those here tomorrow as I work on my poker game and work to put this blog back in the top 25000 of poker blogs that don't suck.

Thanks, see you tomorrow.

Two Months Later...Yeah, that's about right

Two months later, and yeah, that's about right. I made a deposit at Full Tilt Poker last Friday night, and somehow, I am a positive $2 with the cashier.
I displayed some of the old poker skill Friday night when I finished 23rd in a $3+.30 KO No Limit Tourney and collected $6. It brought back some thoughts on a previous adventure.
As with as tourney that you are playing in, once you get to the money, it doesn't matter what you did before in the tourney. I was forced to make a decision during the tourney while just hanging off the edge of the cash bubble. Low on chips, I was dealt AQ off suit in early position. Do I go all in, or do I limp to see a flop? I answered my question with a question:
Do you want to win? My answer was yes, so I went all in, and hit an Ace on a flop that 4 others saw and my small stack was now well in the money with just a few eliminations to go.
Now then...
My intentions for this blog is to 'BRING IT BACK TO LIFE'. I have all the time in the world to do a lot of things, but I do enjoy poker, and I was having lots of fun when I was blogging and reading other blogs and playing a little poker.
Granted, I am a little wiser with the cash and I know a bit more than I did then - but so does everyone else.
Next post won't appear here until Monday night - I am headed out of town for a three day weekend, and Monday night is the 1st shot I will have to post a blog.
Thanks for reading - I wil get back to my old self - and don't forget about the beer!

Gee, You'd Think I'd Update This More


Yeah, I've been playing poker for two months now; still I have yet to post one worthwhile or thoughtful thing on this site.

Hey, it happens.

I've been updating my beer selections, but I know I should post them here as well.

Perhaps if I get motivated enough (and caught up on everything holding me back) I'll get to that at some point.

I'm still circulating.

Tell you what, I'll pass along updates all this week on what the F everyone else is doing with their blogs.

I'll look into that with a bit of research, and come back and post on it.

Throw in a couple of comments by some readers, and I'll even post a picture of myself at the dentist this morning with a mouthful of dental molding.  Yuck!

I think I just doubled my posts on the 'new' blog.  Congrats to me!
