Near Month End Misc.

Slowly climbing out of my hole. I cut my deficit to -$150 for the month. Still grinding away. I was actually doing better at $25NL rings than at $50NL, until Tenbob got lucky on me and flopped 2 pair. He didn't slowplay and shoved the flop so I called what I thought was a bluff with my overpair of 10's. No catch. Thanks TB.

Anyway, I really like the Xfire service. But I have to shut it down because my computer is so old and can't handle the extra program running when I'm multi-tabling. I'll get back on Xfire when/if I get a new comp.

Also, the blog music poll is split evenly as of this moment. Need more votes to make a decision on the fate of blog music.

Trying to Turn a Bad Month Good

November has been a bad month so far. I'm down around $230 in 3 weeks. I actually think I'm playing well, but I'm coming up against some major bad luck suckouts. I guess that's why I'm not really upset about it. Yes, I've made some bad plays. But it seems like they haven't been as plentiful as the coolers this month. In an interesting switch, I have been doing better at SNG's than cash rings. Dunno why, but I guess I'll steer more towards the SNG's until I can turn things around. Anyway, I've got 9 days to salvage the month. We'll see how it goes.

Be sure to vote in my poll regarding the music that plays on the blog page. Its fate could be determined by you!

More Gems For My Readers

I was messing around with another Full Tilt mod and I made a racetrack table featuring the NHL's Edmonton Oilers' Logo:

I also made a new ringtone for my phone. I works great so I decided to share it here. If you are a fan of TV poker, I think you'll recognize it.

Also, I joined a website called "Xfire". It is primarily a video gamers' site, but it has an interface that tracks online gameplay time and that tracking includes poker sites. It runs in the background like an IM program and even lets you see if your friends are online and what they are playing. And of course, it has a chat feature. I've included my Xfire profile with my time tally at the top of the page below the header, so that folks can see how much I play and when I'm online. I thought it would be cool to try out and to see how much time I actually play online poker.

And finally: I added some music to the page for a change. I found a site called "eSnips" and they make it really easy to add the music. I started out with an old and rare track by Duran Duran, but I'll be changing it periodically. Please feel free to comment and LET ME KNOW if the music is too annoying for a poker blog or if you do like it. Thanks.

EDIT: Vote in the POLL below the music player, added 11/11/07.
