Not much of import to relate from the poker tables of late. Had a really big Friday, donated a chunk back on Saturday, yada yada yada. Saturday was frustrating not so much from a money lost perspective, but because I found myself backsliding already, as far as continuing to play, chasing losses, for far too long. Which is just, umm, dumb. Cut that shit out.
I go back and forth on the idea of setting stop-losses for the day. I've never really believed in it, as there have been plenty of times where I got stuck a largish sum early and came roaring back. But there are also plenty of times when I just mired myself much deeper in the hole, too. I may try it for awhile as an experiment and see what happens.
Congrats to the Steelers fans out there, but I have to say that was a pretty Meh SuperBowl. I guess you could be an optimist and say both teams' defenses played really well, but from where I was sitting it looked more like a handful of flukeish plays going Pittsburgh's way, coupled with the SeaChicken receivers suddenly forgetting how to run routes without going out of bounds, or, you know, actually catching balls thrown to them.
ScurvyWife has been showing a bit more interest in teh poker, so we've been playing a few sessions with us and a few stuffed animals, just to get more example hands out there. So far Oliver the giraffe is kicking all of our asses, despite being a rockish little ungulate. I don't think ScurvyWife will be grinding online anytime soon but we'll probably definitely hit a low limit table at Vegas the next time we're out there.
