Just a Fad?

Is America getting tired of poker?

http://msn.foxsports.com/other/story/3686392?GT1=6555

What the hell is this guy smoking? Whatever it is, pass it thi...ah, nevermind.

...

My brother, who's 4 years younger than I, has more credit and gets approved for more cards than I have. WTF?! One of the card designs I saw had the Chinese characters "good fortune" on them. I wish I had that one. But my brother opted for the beach design. Lucky bastard.

...


In an effort to stop the bleeding (or at least slow it down), I've gone back to one table sit-and-go tournaments. And I'm happy to report that I think my luck is finally changing. I've played in two today and was able to finish in first place both times. Yay! Finally. A much needed victory.

Unlike the Spurs who just seem to be choking. Reminds me of the classic Portland/Los Angeles series where the Trailblazers imploded and the Lakers stole that series from them. I seriously expected the Spurs to sweep. With the talent they have, and the way they were playing, they should've man-handled the Pistons like in the first two games. But alas, I see hope fading quickly for Tim Duncan's third trophy this year. It's a pity, really.

Anyway, back to poker. I remember that these one table sit-and-go were what got me excited at the prospect of me actually making money off of poker. I was cashing in about 2 out of every 3 of these I played in. And then, a freakishishly long streak of bad luck forced me to lose hope in these type of games. And I turned to the ring games to make my money.

But now that my luck on the ring games are just horrible, I've reverted back to the single table tourneys in search of hope. And so far it's looking ok. Funny how things come full circle. And I'm sure once my luck changes again, I'll be back at the ring games and back and forth and so on.

It's amazing how terrible some of these players are. Of the final three players left in a single table tourney, one of them is guaranteed to have reached there on pure luck. It's just a matter of patience when it comes to picking off these players heads-up for an easy first place win.

Harrington's second book arrived, and I'm shocked that it's even longer than the first. Jeebus. I thumbed through it, and it looks like good stuff but mostly filled with sample or "practice" hands with his analyses of them.

I'm tired...and bored...and losing my mind. Coherent words no longer can put together. Me go.

"Good Fortune"
