Poker :: Nothing New
  submitted on March 11, 2008, 10:05 AM


I apologize for the lack of poker posts lately. Basically, for about the past month, I've been having some crippling internet issues. Basically, every day, my internet will disconnect frequently throughout the day. Some days it might only happen a few times, other times it may happen over 30 times. There's really no rhyme or reason to it. I've had three technicians come out to look into the issue and none have been able to come up with a solution. I think my ISP is almost to the point where they're going to have to start looking at the cables outside of my building, because it certainly doesn't seem to be an issue on my end.

Needless to say, this has made poker playing absolutely infuriating lately, and as a result, I have wasted pretty much whatever I have had left of a bankroll. I would try and get through tournaments, but it's pretty hard to do when you're constantly disconnecting and sitting out and getting involved in hands that you end up folding because you aren't there to play them. I've only been able to play in the Big Game so far in the BBThree, and that involved me missing probably about 30% of the hands I played, so I literally won no significant hands and the one nice starting hand I did get was AK which I laid down on a K-high board in what was probably a weak fold since I'm playing with a bunch of bloggers. I think my reasoning for folding was sound, but sometimes I give my opponent too much credit for having a hand. Maybe I should post the HH some time, get some thoughts.

So, I'm hoping my internet issues get resolved soon, because I really wanted to dive headfirst into the BBT. In the meantime, don't expect much in the way of poker content from me.
