Pokerstars rocks, I must say. I also must say:

Poker Championship

I have registered to play in the
Online Poker Blogger Championship!

This event is powered by PokerStars.

Registration code: 7446203

I think I saw 600 bloggers have already registered. Wow.

Live home game tonight for me: typical drunken debauchery, 1/2 stakes with the occasional round of NL ($5 max bet to keep it friendly), but fun.

Finally broke my winning streak at SNG's last night. (I think I've moneyed in the last 5 or 6 I've played?) Played too aggressively in the opening rounds (much better just to hang back, folks, and wait for a good opportunity; then turn it way up with 5 to go), and in fact I have been working more aggressive play in my ring games too, with mixed results. I certainly pick up more pots, but I also get into trouble more than I'd like.

I'll be registering with the PokerStars blogger tourney as soon as I can, but the next week is too much with work.

Just a quick post today. Ran the Empire freeroll bank to nearly $700 this weekend, thanks to a $30 SNG first, and some limit HE.

Slow and steady bankroll growth is good, but I decided to play the Pacific Poker 100K on Sunday as well, and made one mistake that cost me dearly, after playing really well the first hour. The hand doesn't matter; what does is that I lost my focus on the game, and made a move that was aggressive just to be aggressive. I didn't think it through. I play pretty well in tourneys, as long as I keep my head in the game, think about the opponent. I didn't do that after the first break, and as a result, I crippled myself when I should have folded.

Lesson learned? We'll see.
