I'm back

I finally finished transferring all of my old posts at over to here. If you haven't read any of my old posts yet, go back and start at the beginning.

December hasn't been the greatest poker month. I will have my December results up soon. My bad run at the end of November continued most of December. I was doing awesome at SNGs, but during my bad streak, I couldn't do anything right. Around Dec 20th or so, I was down probably around $300 from poker playing. I've actually moved down in limits some. I am not playing that many $15 and $20 SNGs anymore. I've gone back to the $6 Turbos, and $5 & $10 regular SNGs. The bonuses I have received have been more than that, so my bankroll is still growing. Just not that much.

So the weekend before Christmas, I said to myself, that if I didn't do good in my next set of SNGs, I was going to take a poker break for a couple days, re-read Harrington on Hold 'em, and then, maybe my bad run of cards would be over. Well that night, while feeding my son, I played in three SNGs, and took 1st in one, and 2nd in the other two!

Since then, I have had 4 or 5 days in a row where I have made money! I'm still down around $150 playing poker for the month, but I am finally going in the right direction.

I am really close to clearing the $100 bonus at Stars, and am almost done with another $100 bonus at Party Poker. By the time I complete those, my bonus money for the month of December will easily be over $500!

And to top all this off, I hit my first Royal Flush this morning! And I got some money out the dude who in the pot against me! It was folded around to me in middle position (Party Poker NL $25), and I had [Js] [Ts] and I raised it up and got one caller. The [As] and the [Qs ]came on the flop. I bet half pot, he called. Turn was a blank. I bet half pot again, and he called. River was the beautiful [Ks]. I bet half pot again, and he called! So I even got to showdown my Royal!
