Another Night and a Slow Poker Week

Well I made it down to Chumash with Joe on Monday night and came out winner again. I'm still feelin like I'm playin well, and I finally feel like it's consistant. I'm likin it. On Monday night it was a little different than usual though, cuz Joe and I played at the same table. We usually try not to sit at the same table, because we hate getting in each other's way and we play to take everyone else's money, not each other's. In the past we've had problems playing with each other at the same table, and often times he would get angry with my aggressive style. But this time we sat right next to each other, and for whatever reason, even though we were in some hands together, we didn't get in each other's way even once. That was cool, and we both ended up decent winners on about 4 hours of play.

I'm still playin shorter sessions than I'd like to, but I really don't have time to do that. I'd like to be playing 6-8 sessions, but I'm usually hittin 3-6 hour sessions, 6 almost always being the max. Working 9-5 doesn't leave me a lot of time to play, and when I haven't played 3 times by the time Friday comes, I feel like I haven't been playing at all. Obsessed? I think not, but it definitely might be up there. Then again no millionaire poker player got that way by not playing so whatever....

Darsky brought up the idea of pullin a long session down at Morongo this weekend, but since I have to work until 2 on Saturdays it's tough to put together true weekend sessions. It sucks cuz I've been craving to play Morongo's no-max buy-in 2/5NL since the last time we went there after I took a few dumb beats/plays and ended up a bigger loser than I'd like to admit. I feel like since I'm back in the game at Chumash I can probably clean up the bigger buy-in tables down at Morongo now. Dar said he might also think about pulling a weekender at Chumash though, so I still might get in some good sessions yet, so we'll have to see.

In other news we played my boss's .50/1 game last night, and I left exactly even. Since we started playing I haven't left loser yet, surprised?

In DVD news, I finished watching the first season of HUFF after getting hooked on the second season first, and damn I love this show. I like Hank Azaria as an actor, and Oliver Platt plays an awesome character in it as well. The first season was well written and you should definitely check it out if you haven't already, I can't get enough. Also I finally bought Spaceballs, Collector's Edition, which, oddly enough, I've been wanting to do for a while now, and I also bought Sin City, which I haven't even seen yet. I have laundry to do (tons of it) and movies to watch, so I think my quiet night at home is all planned. Although Joe might call me up and drag me to Chumash later, so we'll see what happens.......

Damn. That's how I have been feeling. When I don't get out and play at least a couple times in a week, I feel like its wasted time. And I've played even less. But this weekend will be different!
