That actually sounds like fun! Thanks for the tip. It's been the stairmaster and elliptical for cardio lately. No idea where I'm going to find enough belly-button-high water in Dallas to walk in. I love walks along the beach when I'm on vacation though.

Back to poker, last night I was very close to breaking my records for most money won in a single poker session (previously $500) and most money won in a single LHE session ($400). At one point I was up $460. I was up $430 and had already announced it was my last hand of the night. I'm UTG with two black kings and raise. Folds around to the BB, a young Indian fish with only about $40 behind. He 3-bets me. I say to myself, "If he has aces he's getting my $40 and I'm not losing a second of sleep over it" and cap it. The board ran out fairly innocuously and he did indeed have AA, so I finished at $390 instead of $430. Still a good night though! And had fun.

I am now a lifetime winner at LHE over a 262-hour sample.

Yes!!! I love it.

Re: Give me a frank and honest assessment...

Played O8 for the first time this year a couple weeks ago. It was a 5/10 game with a full kill. Bought in for $300 got up with $530. The Limit Omaha Hi-Lo chapter in Jeff Hwang's book is awesome. Planning a trip to the Orleans this summer where there are always multiple O8 tables running including 8/16 which I'll probably take at least one shot at. I wish the O8 game at my local casino (Winstar) ran it more often because I'm hooked.

Re: Give me a frank and honest assessment...

your honesty is pretty amazing considering most poker players are full of sht or not self aware in their inabilities concerning poker. For starters your playing way too high for your bankroll but more importantly, as a person that had to start competitive chess and poker from scratch at a late age and slowly build up to being fairly good at both, i can tell you its simply a love of the game and hard work. If you dont have the discipline or time to deconstruct your game and fix your leaks then you have to play free online until you can improve and have a more objective approach to the game. From your recent posts it looks like your starting to figure it out though, GL on the tables bro
