Is anybody out there?

... no, not really. I've been playing and I have ideas of things to write about, but I'm lacking the inspiration/motivation to put them in the blog. So here are a couple quick hits:

  • SNGs: At first, I thought that the Nerdvice was pretty useless and wasn't improving my game (sorry nerd), but PokerTracker says otherwise. Since I got the Nerdvice, my roi is now 7.47%, as opposed to the LOSING ONE I had after buying the SNG powertools. Sadly, 7.47% translates to just about enough to cover both of these aids.

  • SNG stacking: Stacking is SO COOL. What's stacking you say? That's when you open 6-20 SNGs all at once, and then put all of the windows on top of one another so you can only see one table at a time. This really helps with the boredom of the first 3-5 levels and by the time you get ITM, you have a manageable level of SNGs left. When I get 4 windows left, I spread them out so I can play them HU where I keep an eye on them. The bonus of this is you really minimize tilt - you don't sweat flops (although i have been known to try and find THAT WINDOW to see some), and if you get sucked out on you don't have time to be bitter about it because some other window is beep beep beeping for your attention. Close the window and move on. NB: I cannot do continuous stacking like the nerd and some others do, but it's a nice way to build up the VPP points.

  • Live play: This is the subject of many posts that are in my head: a) I'm learning (slowly) that I cannot call, I must fold or raise; b) I have a serious problem with patience and pausing to review action and that has got to be fixed; c) I need to put the red-ass preflop reraise into my arsenal but I am a big chicken; d) sometimes you just gotta fold; e) if you can't put your chips in the middle when you're 90% positive you have the best hand, you should't be playing this game; e) do not even TRY to beat me when I'm playing drunken donkey 3/6 - you can't, and you'll just hurt yourself (see example 1). Not to antagonize the poker gods, but I'm doing ok in this arena

  • POY tourney: thanks, biggestron for putting this together. I still hate playing with bloggers. Bring on the Stud/8.

  • My Birthday: Is tomorrow, peoples. Gracie already bought me a sitNgo! I had to set up the webcam so she could watch the play since she signed up from work. Oop.

  • Austin: I leave Wednesday and I still need to get a ride to the airport. I should apply for membership in Procrastinators Anonymous.

Nice banner. Since it was first published (by you) in the comments section of my blog, when can I expect my royalty checks?
