Playing Poker for a Living Online

I was reading about people playing poker online for a living here. I think it's great that there are people good enough at this game to make $100k a year playing it. And I wish I was one of them. I also hope they all play at some other table besides mine.

I got a great compliment from a friend of mine. (T.) He and I were talking about playing online, and I mentioned that I wasn't going to sit at his table anymore. I told him that I wanted to play at tables where I was the best player at the table, so there was no real point in playing at a table with someone who was so much better than me. Especially since I know he's so much better than I am.

His reply? "Don't even pull that with me. I've seen you walk out of the poker room in Richardson up 800% for the evening."

Anyway--coming from T., who is one of the best (and tightest) players I've ever seen, I took that as a huge compliment.

Rebuilding my Poker Bankroll

After my pot limit tilt session last Friday night, I've found myself in the position of having to rebuild my poker bankroll. My bankroll was down to $25, but I've built it back up to $112 over the last few nights playing NL at the $25 buy in tables. It's slow going, but I'm working on it diligently, and I'm committed to playing for at least an hour or an hour and a half every night. Last night I made $2.50 for my time, but I'd done allright a couple of nights before that. Not supposed to focus on short term results anyway.

I thought this was neat: Nothing brings a family together like a game of poker.
