stars 55 ft

Well for the first time in about 3 weeks I won a 20/180, felt good to get the rust off. Also, I fted the 55k but lost a high pot 5 handed 10s vs Qs. Ended up busting out shortly after that for 3700 or so. felt good to have a solid tourny day. I am going to try for 1,000 180s this month shouldn't be too hard now with the addition of the 10/180s. Which seem to be filling up faster than the 4/180s. Guess they took a good chunk of the player base from both the 4s and the 20s . I just wish sometime soon stars makes them have 10min blind levels.

first day back

First full day of online poker since the party poker canceling. I lost a few hundred but did alright for a while getting back to my multitabling ways. Had 20-25 tables going 90% being 180s of all buyins $4-$20. I was doing just fine with a new table situation setup. I had 15 on left screen 12 on right. But, than I accidentally hit tile tables and than it sent 20 tables to my left screen and left 6 on my right. Left screen was so crowded and I kept timing out in a lot of tournys. I didn't have a score about 100$ though hit a few fts for 180s never getting better than 4th. Also, got down to 2 tables in a 5$ FO, but tanked half my stack on 2 table bubble restealing. Than my 9BB shove of j10 got called by A9 and AK. looked good on the 10xx flop bad on the Ace river. I did a little bit in cash to make up most of my tourny fees.

I was planning a trip to TS this weekend for their tournys but due to having a few things to do with the nov team challenge as well as being too lazy to drive 2 hours to get there. I will be spending the weekend grinding my 180s. Time to get back to my roots where I enjoyed poker.

And down goes partypoker

Well there goes my first site and what is the reason I am where I am in this crazy poker world. Really sad to see it go for US players. Had some great times there and from poker I made over 100k on poker yet overall I am down like 20k on that site I believe. Really sad how that turned out, even had a nice run at 100/200 while doing a honorary last shot at party while I could made like 10k, next day lost that 10k and 5 more playing table games again. Still had a little in my account at the time ran it upto like 5k now it's stuck on that site.

Now I am totally screwed it seems for the coming week or two. Firepay won't accept my money so I have no way of getting money online until I figure out how to do a wire transfer. My debit card does not work with poker sites. I was hoping to be able to either trade party money for stars or just get a neteller account working but looks like neither of that can happen either. So I guess I am stuck with the 300 I have on stars and playing a few 20/180s and the newly added 10/180s and hopefulyl win a few so I can have a actual workable roll until I figure out a way to get 10k or so online

WCOOP and running bad

Well I am still running really bad on stars buy luckily the only 2 tournys they decided to let me cash in were the 1k LHE ad the ME getting I think 180th and 136th respectively. Besides that I can't cash in anything there my tourny game has escaped me dunno what's going on. Cash games been bad for me. I am also trying to force a lot more hours in this week due to the possibility of stars following suit with party poker and other sites and preventing US players from playing.

I am really unsure of what I am going to do I could go play live at TStone and get a place closer so I don't have to drive 2 hours each way. Or I may goto school out west either UNLV or some Socal school. Another option I am considering is canada either for school or just getting an appt with a few other poker players.

I think this week I am going to try to organize a TLB team challenge to start this sunday. I'll prob have a post up on 2+2 about it see if theres enough interest. I need to be moitvated to play with an unknown timespan left for US and online poker.
