Poker 2005

I didn’t end up going to AC this past weekend. As some of my fellow blog mates know, I cleaned out my bankroll. I had some personal things to take care of so I closed out. Now I’m in a new year and I’m going to start keeping better track of my bankroll. In other words, this year I’m not pulling money to travel, drink and have a good time. This will be the first year that I take everything dealing with gambling…well serious. I think I have always played conservative so I always did well. Sure I had my down swings and those swings where it seemed I would never come back from being sucked out from runner-runner. But as all of us know, you do come back from those awful beats.

In any case, the reason I’m going to be posting my wins and losses is because it needs to be done. My sister wants to be able to follow. I know, I know, I’m too damn old to be answering to her…well you don’t know the girl…she will give me an ass whipping and was a bit sad that I didn’t retire when I said I would. So if I can show her some wins and she can follow my stats I’m sure she won’t be as pissed as she is with me now a days.

Things I will be telling her and my few readers in the near future.
Location – Hours Played – Gave Played – $ Started With - $ Ended With. Of course I will also include: Transportation – Food – Lodging – Tips.

I figure once she reads and can follow she will be fine with what I’m doing. Who knows, if I win a seat to the WPT events such as Otis did last week, I might invite her. Well boys and girls….I have to break for the time being.

I also wanted to make my 2005 Poker Wish List:

1. Play solid as much as possible.
2. Learn to bet a bit better for value.
3. Learn to change gears on the drop of a dime – not only when you lose big hand.
4. Play more casino tournaments.
5. Set two days aside for 7 Card Stud.
6. Read more books on poker and re-read old books.
7. Get a mentor who you can chat with about your game and flaws.
8. By June sit at 15/30 and not worry about bad runs.
9. Log 30 hours a week.
10. Make a visit to AC or Foxwoods at least twice a month.

Interested in seeing your wish list when it comes to poker this coming year.

Well this blog certainly is not about caribbean stud poker. What the heck! I guess the internet can play some tricks on us sometimes. I have been on-line for two hours
researching caribbean stud poker and came tumbling across your blog. I LOVE IT! I needed a break from caribbean stud poker anyways :-) If you don't mind I want to add your

Yes! Poker 2005 never more a truer word written. Joaquin "The Rooster" Ochoa keep it up I always enjoy a thought provoking read on a lonely night with a glass of scotch. Definitely beats Jenny with her barbie doll blog site. I just left another interesting site with a few books on the subject of poker poker players I never realised you can actually use computer software while playing to actually help you lift your odds! Don't know how practical it would be but some people are definitely swearing by it. I will look into it further and anything to do with poker players to help my game. Viva online play!!

Keep it up people are reading!!
