So today goes pretty much like every other day at work. Samo Samo and i just design subdivisions for 9 hours. I come home and my roommate isn't here. She just moved in about a week ago and actually i got her off craigslist. Now i know what you are thinking... wtf? craigslist? don't you have friends? Well in short yeah i have friends but friends without leases i don't have. So I actually heard really good things from a few of my friends about people getting roommates off craigslist. Well i give it a shot. I get a few responses, 2 of which are normal people.
Being the 24 year old straight outta college guy that i am, i go for a 23 yo guy from clemson and a 23 yo girl from jmu (james madison). The girl is willing to commit to a whole year and she gets the place. After meeting her and talking over a beer, she's real cool and i could definiltely see myself getting along with her. anyways, she moved in yadayada.
So back to the story, she's not home and i sit down and fire up a little game of 1/2 plo hu. play some douche bag donkey who sits with $40 and lose like $18 before he leaves... abotu this time i get a call from my roommate to come outside. She's surprised me with a new recliner for our living room. Awesome.
Its prolly the least she could do after i bought all new furniture and a 60" tv, but its still an awesome jesture and an great surprise.
Anyways so gave a lesson today as well. He's actually got alot of potential as a student, he really seems to have his head on straight just needs to think a little outside of the box. but of course you gotta be in the box before you can think out of it. So he's there at least. He's one of about 5 students i am coaching on a semi-regular basis. So on that note, lessons from DamnRinger are half-buyin/hour and totally worth it. I'm sure a few guys can vouch for it and might just do so on the blog.
Anyways to the poker for the evening. After the lesson,
the tables was hustling with pros at 2/4. The tables were not ideal conditions to be played in, however, i didn't really have a choice cause tonight from 10 til 11:30 was the only time i had available to play and i'm an addict so alas i'm stuck. I fire up 2 tables that have spots without chislodc on them (i'm avoiding him until i get a better grip on his game, narena feel free to comment on how to tackle that beast). Actually i already know, i just gotta let him hang himself but easier said than done. I sit at a new table as i get on the waiting lists and i get a guy sit down with $382.64. Now first thing that goes through my head, "this guy is gonna try to hit and run me". That's a good thought and was spot on. http://www.pokerhand.org/?2330636.
So this is the first hand i really played today... great start and great read by me. I love starting up new tables just because you get some random people that really just decide to sit down with you and you can avoid alot of the regulars as well. Plus you get to see everyone from the beginning. Anyways all said and done i think i played really well tonight (minus one call against narena). And here's the graph from tonight, and march graph will be on the way shortly.
