Scattered Notes

I have a headache and I'm out of pictures to post. But I've been winning pretty consistently, so go figure.

I'm playing the B2B sites and whoring their bonuses. I'm on the TopRankedPoker 600 euro bonus now, which will take a few days to work off. The sites generally have a few games going (at least shorthanded NL games), but because it's a European network, their peak hours are sometimes hard to catch. Fortunately, I'm so far west that the games start to pick up between 10 and midnight HST.

I'm working the 6:30 a.m. shift during the end of this week, so that encouraged me to find other games since I need to go to bed soon. I felt up for it, so I played a short session at 10/20 limit. I won a few good pots and then got tired.

I've read a couple of columns recently that I think will help my limit game. These kinds of standard strategies are always helpful to have in mind, although of course everything is situational.

_On slow-playing top pair in small pots:
Playing Small Pots Correctly

_On turn decisions vs. an overpair:
Another Fundamental Situation: To bet or not to bet, the turn.

Another thing I was thinking about is that I really need to find a home game. I've been waffling on it because Internet poker is so much safer and has lower rake structures, but now I've decided I want to get some live games in.

Live poker will help my game and my reads. There's no doubt in my mind about that. And live poker is fun.

Finally, I wanted to post this blackjack bonus from Sportingbet. It's a one-day bonus for $50 that probably makes sense to do if it's not a hassle and you regularly do blackjack bonuses anyway.

Ug. I'm going to take some Nyquil and get some rest.

A bit of a pain in the gulliver?

Better sleep it off! You gotta get fit!
