More of the same...

So I decided to deposit another $100 this weekend into Caribbean Sun Poker. I got a killer Rakeback deal, so I'll probably be playing there quite a bit from now on. It's part of the Cryptologic family of sites, so a lot of Europeans play there. Great software in my humble opinion. The losing however, still continues.

I cannot seem to break out of my slump, first of all, I've been playing above my limit. $1/$2 limit is not the ideal game for a bankroll my size. Especially when said bankroll has shrunk below $100 total. Ouch. To be fair, I have taken some insanely brutal beats this weekend. It's certainly not doing anything for my self confidence, nor my bankroll.

I'd really like to concentrate on some Sit n Gos. It seems as though Caribbean Sun isn't quite as plentiful in the SnG department, so I've not been playing many. And my Stars bankroll is so low, and their SnGs so long, I just don't feel comfortable there. We'll have to see what the future holds.

I'm about three quarters of the way through the Stu Ungar book. It's been excellent thus far, I highly recommend picking it up. I'm trying to decide if I want to Al Can't Hang's bash at the boathouse party later this month. Philly is not too terribly far from me (about 500 miles), so I think I'd probably drive the whole way. Maybe I can convince Iggy to ride with me? I did not get a chance to go to the Vegas Gathering back in June, nor the Bradoween gathering last month. And from all the trip reports I've read from both events, I feel as though I'm really missing out. Besides, I need to sit down and have a musical discussion with Al and Bad Blood.

That's it for now. See ya at the tables!
