I played on-line poker today for the first time in over a month. It didn't take me long to remember that I suck at poker. By the time I was done I had lost most of my buy-in. I can't really blame anyone but myself, except on that one hand where that damn calling station caught his card on the river. I played hands I don't normally play. I stayed in hands when I knew I should have folded. I played like a fucking donkey! It really sucked but it was free money.
Luckily, when I was in Austin last month, I played some okay poker. My Twin had a graduation party and, of course, there was some poker played. It was a $20 buy-in and I left with triple that. There was one hand I wish I could remember better but I had to make a decision for almost all of my chips. Was he bluffing? Was my 2 pair good? I finally said "I'll probably regret this" and pushed my chips in. I flipped up my cards and my opponent said "Re-buy". From there I just played my good hands and had fun. I think that was what was missing earlier today....the fun.
Since I have a little bit of money in my online account, I'll probably play some more over the weekend. Feel free to stop in and say hi if you see my at a table.
