Poker mode on

I’ve been grinding away.  I’m up to 7,100 VPPs and am starting to believe I will get to Platinum again this month.  My daily goal only is 428 now, which is pretty easily attainable.  I’ve had some real up and down days.  Yesterday I ran about -12 bb/100 and today I was up about 14 bb/100.  Today was one of those days where I tended to win a lot of hands without showdowns, which is a really good situation for me.  If I feel like I’m effective making moves with air, I really have my best results.  Yesterday I got caught in bluffs early on and I really couldn’t move anyone off a hand.  Today, I mostly only showed down good hands and I seemed to get folds when I wanted them pretty often.  Looking back at the session, I lost more big hands than I won, but I won a ton of small and medium pots.

I got an invitation to a charity poker event from the PPA, but I didn’t think that much about it.  It does have a WSOP Main Event seat as a prize, which is pretty cool, but that apparently wasn’t enough to make me concentrate on it.  When my cousin forwarded an email that said they only had about two dozen runners thus far, that did get my attention.  I’ve signed up and figure that the whole thing is going to be run like a charity raffle, but I’ve got to be +EV against a local field.  I can’t imagine a lot of people have any significant live poker experience, let alone WSOP experience.  I play on Saturday.

The remodel is cruising along.  The kitchen is starting to look much more complete.  Most of the trim is up now and the countertops have been ordered.  When we got home tonight, the house was swarming with people.  The plumbers was moving the pipes under the sink, the tile guys were laying tile in the sunroom and the kitchen guy was installing the beaded trim.
