My Bad Poker Isn't Doing Well

Just a very quick update tonight.

I've played a few cash games at Absolute and emptied my account. My lack of playing seems to have sent my game into a downward spiral, the abyss of bad poker if you like.

Anyway, onwards and upwards as they say. I'm going to persevere and hopefully I'll get back to at least breaking even fairly soon. I'm determined to get better and start making some cash, but we'll have to wait and see.

I'm sure after a little more practise, my bad poker play will start to improve and I can get back to enjoying the game more.

Playing Poker Again

It seems like ages since I've been playing poker but I've decided that I'm definitely going to set aside a hour or three each week to play, even if the babies are all screaming. Well maybe if they're not screaming but you get the point.

Last weekend I played on Friday and Saturday nights for a while and although I won about $30 on Friday, I lost it again on Saturday.

I'm back to playing at Absolute Poker, since I found I still had about $130 in my account and I've decided, for the first few games at least to play $0.50/$1 No Limit Holdem. I'm going to take the minimum $40 into each game in case my play is way off and see how things work out from here.

I'm also going to try and play more aggressively than I used to and try to concentrate more. I'll either make more this way or go bust but I'm willing to give it a go and see.

I've typed this up during a game and now that it's time for bed, I've finished up with nothing!! I was up to 2.5 times my buy-in but all-in with Kings caught a straight and I'm probably off to bed a little earlier than I had imagined.

By the way, Absolute Poker have started awarding Credit and Fame points which I'm sure is grat new and if I ever bother to find out what they are, I'll let you all know.
