It's funny, really. Whenever I think I'm going through a terrible week, I usually end up winning quite a bit. The cards have been really awful this week, but I somehow managed to make a few bucks. Nice.
And I finally learned that the fish are abundant on Party/Empire on the weekends. I haven't been able to play much on the weekends until tonight. Boy, it's so nice to see all those guppies back in the pond. Where the hell they go during the week, I don't know.
I'm making my biggest winnings off of maniac players. And there seems to be a growing number of them. I haven't seen these many crazy raises in a while. Don't you love it when they raise you when you're holding the nuts? Of course, there are those times when they just keep raising and reraising you, and you find out that your pocket Aces have just been busted by a 10-5 offsuit. There are times when no matter what you try, you just can't beat those maniacs who keep catching their cards. I've learned to just walk away when that happens. Even though I may have the mathematical edge, when they're lucky, they're lucky. Better to save what you have left for another battle against them another day. That's what the "Buddy List" is for, right?
I've also looked into being an online prop, but it just doesn't seem profitable for me. I thought I'd might as well get paid to play while I'm playing, but the rules and restrictions are just too much. Plus, they don't pay you nearly enough. Much like B&M props back in the day? Although it's rare to see any props in the cardrooms of major casinos anymore these days.
Memorial weekend. I'll take some time to go hit the beach, finally.
