the bug is pretty much gone, as is several buy-ins at Poker Academy. Stan says I have to raise more preflop, which I've pretty much figured for a while now. Problem is, a small raise with Aces or, say, Queens from early position will get those small and medium pocket pairs to tag along. Maybe not so readily for the small pairs if I go big. And yes, had I raised big on either of those two hands, I most likely would have pushed them out. But don't I want them to come along?
Yeah, I knew I was beat both times, so I have no excuses for stacking off. Self-sabotage. Five losing sessions in a row. Yadda yadda.
I could use a nap, and here it is not quite 11:00 in the ayem.
I guess, but best not push it.
Yeah, today is DW's birthday, bless her heart. Hope she likes the gift. And cards. I like to give her lots of cards. Pitiful romantic at times, but know where my blessings lay, so don't be too hard on me. Grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner. And chocolate cake. And movies. Her choice.
The switch to my brain has a short in it. Or some gunk on it. A smudge, like on a lens. Or blockage in the pipes. Hard to tell. Yet, it shows.
Not to worry. Saw it coming. Got it covered. Gonna throw a blanket over it.
Look out, images.
