I made Platinum this month, thanks to the 2x FPP promo, but I’ve really scaled way back on the playing. Part of it is motivation and part of it is schedule-related. I’ve been saddled with a lot more assignments on the homefront with the never-ending renovations and work has gotten a bit more hectic. Clearly the primary problem is that I just haven’t been feeling it. I’m going to try to buckle down and get in at least a few hours for the rest of the month. I played a very short session this morning on the 5/10 tables and had fun with my loose pre-flop play. I won a couple of very nice pots with marginal hands and got heckled by a Swedish guy for being loose, which might be worthy of some kind of award. I believe he called me “gutshot King” which isn’t a bad title, really. I assured him that the truth was that I was a very bad player, but I’m not sure that is the right answer when heckled. Next time I might ask what a gutshot is.
The Stars 2x bonus promo has me cranking out some hands.Â I’ve accumulated abot 5,000 points thus far, which makes me a real slacker.Â I’ve also discovered an important tip when 9 tabling 5/10 LHE.Â Raises on the turn mean a real hand.Â Every f-ing type.Â Some of my fancy plays are a very bad idea.
