Poker Pays Off

I think this may be my first post this month. It will also be my last. I'm on vacation and will be out of town the rest of the month so no poker or blog for me. This month poker has taken a back seat and I've only been playing the bare minimum of four SNG's a day. I had to play these whether I wanted to or not so I could maintain my continued Iron Man status at Full Tilt. Thankfully I've been running good and have a 21% ROI for the few I've played.

The TV featured in the photo was delivered to my house today thanks to the Pokerlistings treasure hunt. I managed to win first prize (a drawing, no actual poker skill required) which was a 52" Sony Bravia LCD. This baby is sweet and it's something I never would have bought on my own. It will replace our aging 29" Zenith which we bought at Sears nine years ago. Adding this to the Cruise I won in a freeroll, and the two NUTZ card protectors I won during the Bluff Poker Tour and poker has indeed been very very good to me.

Cob Webs

The desire to play any form of poker has been waning a bit for me lately. In fact yesterday was the first time I had played any poker in about 5 days. I started with an hour long session of 25NL which produced a nice profit of a little over a buy in. I then decided to hit the SNG's. After a sixteen day hiatus from these it was evident I was a little rusty. I was lucky to finish with one first out of my first set of four to break even. I fired up a second set and things went much better as I played my way to 2 firsts, 1 second, and 1 third. Managing to finish the day with a 106.3% ROI it was a very nice "welcome back" to the game.
