So I dared my way back to the tables today, two days after the devastation that cost me a quarter of my bankroll, and fairly swiftly lost another four buy-ins. It wasn't fun. I pushed on with the session and finished down only $400.
After dinner, I decide that poker is MY bitch, not the other way around, so I go back and manage to score $900 in about half an hour of play, and decide to quit early just to savour the feeling of ending while on top. I would probably have kept playing if any of the tables were great, but they weren't really. Mostly decent regs and the occasional fish, and on none of the tables was I directly to the left of the donor, and on several of them I had aggressive 3-bettors to my own left.
So call it a hit-and-run, and I've at least recovered some of Tuesday's disaster. Besides, 1300 hands is not precisely peanuts for me; I'm used to logging about 20k hands a month.
On a sidenote, I appreciate that Party offers periodical reload bonuses, but what the hell is up with the 7 days to clear a gazillion points for $100? Sheesh.
