this poker shut down came at a bad time, but im determined to make something positive out of it ... i actually finished in the prize pool for 2 Omaha freerolls on Carbon in just over a month ... one was $11 ticket and another $2.20 ticket ... i mean, it's kinda like winning jeffrey dollars, but i can still turn it into something and im learning Omaha ... was only a NLH player before
but when you add in home games, im ahead ... not sure exact figure, but gotta be $500 ($100/year) over the 5 or so years we have been playing
ha, oh and i should mention i drink while playing often .. makes it more fun, but clearly it's affected my play here and there ... but again it's about enjoyment ... u have a few beers and bully a .02/05 table ... good times .. unfortuntately that is why im down overall ... won initially playing aggressively ... but maybe peeps started using some stats on me ... but tourney-wise, whether home or online, im up
but again, Vanessa is cute and she has made money at poker ... i just feel that if she looked like Kathy Liebert, we wouldnt even know her and she'd probably be -$30 like me
