Yes. Yesterday checked the stats for the big pots I lost in last three weeks - I lost to three-outers or worse in 21% of hands. Got my money in good a whooping 91%. I really start to believe in "doomswitch".
BUT! Now I have my cool laptop. It's amazing I tell you.
So nothing interesting in poker world over here.
But I have good news as well - this Saturday in some metal gig [without live bands] I will be a fcuking dj and everybody will listen my "technical death session" for a cool hour. Nice.

I had internet installed to my new flat.
Took a boss'es laptop to home - I still ain't got one [laptop, i mean]...
AND WON THE MOTHERFUCKING 10'000 GUARANTEE 30+3 FOR 2500something$!!!!
I WILL HAVE MY OWN LAPTOP!!!!
I'M STILL STOKED!!!

Now I have on my account the exact amount of monies to buy my laptop of choice - Acer Aspire 7730. Every day my cursor slowly crawls to that "cash out" button, but I have a courage to not click it - it would leave me without bankroll and I do not want grind out 10NL again.

Yeah. I do not know, if I will sustain that [I really would like to], but this mourning I reached the new milestone - now my account has over 1k in it. From 30$ in 12th of august to 1035$ today - I guess we can call it a progress. Thus far I play mainly 50NL with occasional jump to 100NL when I feel like it or there are too few 50NL tables [I play mostly in mournings, so traffic is lower].

Well, I am still hovering at 50NL. Played very little due to some personal problems [adventures] in love/family front. We almost broke up with my girlfriend, but now it's fine again. I guess. I do not know.
Anyhoo, that's the "progress", if we can call it. Just bumped in to throw in the link to one funny thread in 2+2 - "How to be a fish in a casino". Here's some good pointers:
-When you get your holecards and it's your turn to act say "Hit Me!"
-Assuming you're playing NLHE, ask if aces can be used for High or Low
-If in a cash game, ask how rebuys you're allowed to have
-Wear a Moneymaker t-shirt
-Keep drawing attention to the table's "chipleader" if in a cash game
-Ask the dealer permission to use the bathroom
-Ask where the hole card camera is
-Keep trying to post the BB in any positoin
-After you get 1 hole card immediately fold
-On the river ask if you can buy a 6th card
-When counting out chips always do it in stacks of 1 chip
-Use a bowling ball for a card protector
-In a cash game, ask when the blinds are going up
-Keep looking around and asking where Mike and Vince are
-Always ask whats the most you can raise
-Raise all bets by $1
-Whenever you get a suicide king or one-eyed jack play it like it's wild
-Ask if you can phone a friend
-When it's your turn to act roll two dice across the table
-Show everyone your chip trick, which is just throwing a chip as high as possible
-Stack your chips like a castle with an entrance for your holecards
-fold your cards with your forehead
Also, sent to Photoshop Disasters pic from Pokerstars newsletter - that guy in the middle [do not know him and don't want to] is clearly photoshopped into some kind of lizardman. Fun.

Moved to 50NL yesterday. Right now seems, there are no difference in play from 30NL. People drawing much more, though - if a guy have a flushdraw, he will pay anything to get there. Also shortstacks [20bb] will push with just everything. Some guy wanted to push me off of the pot of 15$ with 3$ all-in bet! That was fun really.
Anyhow, due to some beats [I mean, somebody sometimes actually got there] I am still braking even at this level. But I am certain, that I will play smart and don't do anything funky, I'll be up in no time. Let's hope for it!

Yesterday gone for another gallop - after some good four hour 4-tabling was up A DOLLAR!!! Well, from other side it isn't so bad - in earning bonus points to clear my bonus had my best day [see the pic]. Today though broke the mark of three hundred - I really hope not to drop below it ever and ever and ever and ever.
Thus far so called "agressive bankroll management" works pretty fine: 70bb is what I consider a buy-in and am moving up when I have teh ten buy-ins for particular level. I know, I know... But I hate 10NL so much, I can't stand playing there.
