Life Shouldn't Be A Fuckin' Grind

I will never be a poker pro, but my lifetime poker ledger is positive and I think that's something to be proud of.

Bad Beats in Life are Worse than those in Poker

I took a pretty tough real life bad beat today. My car had been making scraping and grinding noises at low speeds so I took it in to get the brakes checked. Turns out I need new brakes all around and some work on some ball bearing. Total cost is gonna come to $580. That's way worse than any bad beat I've taken in poker so far. So yeah, that kinda sucks.

In good news, I've put together a pretty solid month profit-wise for the first time in a while. I've had a coupled decent tourney cashes and I've been playing SnGs and doing well at them again. Add in the money I made at the boat last time I went and I think I've made about $400 so far this month. If it wasn't for a tilt session at 5/10 SHLHE early in the month that number would be like $150 higher. I've pretty much quit playing shorthanded limit online for the time being. I'll probably go back to it someday, but for now I really don't want to. I haven't been running well and I'm sure I'm making mistakes, so I'm sticking to SnGs and tourneys for a while and I've really been enjoying poker again. I've mostly been playing Turbo SnGs because they fit my style well with a lot of pre-flop action in the late stages and more donkeys than regular SnGs.

I think I'll probably go to the boat this weekend and take my shot at the Argosy 10/20 game. I'll definitely have an update on that no matter the results. I've also done pretty well picking NFL games this year, so I opened an account at Mansion poker, which also has a sportsbook, and I plan to be making some bets in the coming weeks. I'm looking at a parlay of the 49ers moneyline at +265 vs. the Chiefs and SD and Cleveland both -2.5 against the Ravens and Raiders respectively. I can win $300 betting only $25 or something ridiculous like on that this parlay and I feel pretty good about all of those games, so I'm probably going to do it, it's just a matter of deciding how much I want to bet. Hopefully that will go well.
