Sorry about a lack of posts, but Blogger has been acting up. When I would click on "New Post," a page tried to load, but the screen stayed blank. Finally, tonight it started working properly again. Ghosts in the machine?
I played in the Monster Stack Friday and it was a disaster. Besides not playing well, my luck was bad and this is not a good combination. Enough said.
I took Saturday off from poker. I should say I mostly took it off. I played in a cheap buy-in sit-and-go and my K-K lost to 5-5 and I got up and went, or something like that.
Sunday, I played at Planet Hollywood. They have great tournaments. Good structure, good playing area, mostly good dealers and big attendance, so the prize pools are big. The main cooler of the day was when a jack came on the turn (I had my J-J in the hole). There was also a king on the board and the villain had K-K for set over set. I did manage to build back up, but shoved with A-A on the turn. The board was 4-5-7-9 and the villain called with J-9. A jack on the river let me know it was time to go get a nice meal and forget about poker for a while. One bad thing you can recover from, but not two.
I see there is a Seniors Event Wednesday at the Aria, and I believe I'll try that as a warm-up for the WSOP Seniors on Friday.
