Reached 1k. Ain't that nice?!

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].

Fun things pokar

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.

So far there's no difference

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!

Gallop continues; my version of agressive bankroll management

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.

Swongs noone interested in

Last days was a real rollercoaster. I am constantly beated after money's in ahead [and I am not talking about coinflips here] and some swing been as big as one third of whole bankroll. I will not bother you with all the hand histories here, so instead I'll post candy from my current desktop for Your viewing plesure [it's been a while].

This is not a poker video!

I warned You. And this is not a video of my dearest metal music. This is about my other love.
