Mook Day!

Yesterday was Wednesday, so that means Mook Day! I had a fairly decent, break even night playing MTTs. I played in 8, and I cashed in 3 of them. I made the final table in the Mookie, but went out in 9th when my 99 couldn't win the flip over AK.

I also cashed in the PokerStars $10 rebuy (duh!) and finished around 100th place. I got crippled when someone thought that J6s was a good hand to 3-bet push with ZERO fold equity. I had A6s, and of course a Jack comes on the flop. I seriously don't understand moves like that. When I get odds to call with any two cards, I'M GOING TO CALL WITH ANY TWO CARDS! J6s is going to behind 100% of my range there.

I also finished deep in the Full Tilt 50/50. I ended up bowing out in 19th place. I was crippled a few hands right before I busted when I finally saw a big pocket pair (TT) and was up against JJ.

Cash games were nice, but I basically won back what I lost on Tuesday night, lol.

One thing I noticed about my play between last night and Tuesday night, was that I didn't tilt at all Wednesday. Tuesday I did, and I think I figured out why. I was listening to music while playing last night. It had a really good effect on my play. I was in a zone, humming along to the tunes and everything was good. I will definitely have to fire up the itunes when playing from now on.

Since I've been a little lazy with the poker playing lately, I checked to see the status of my iron man promotion, and found out that I cannot qualify for any of the iron mans this month. Oops. I had been iron man for a good 18 months in a row until now. Oh well, not that big of a deal really. I'll maybe lose out on about $50 worth of FPP points.

Speaking of music, I've been listening to a new band called Paramore a lot lately. For some reason, I've been really digging the rock bands with chick lead singers. They have a lot of really good, catchy tunes on their "Riot!" album.





If you like modern rock like Linkin Park, Seether, etc... you should check them out.

Tonight is the premiere of Grey's Anatomy, and my wife is huge fan of the show so she invited a whole bunch of her girlfriends over to watch.

*sigh* I'm sure I'll be getting requests from the girls to bring out the Wii Fit and demonstrate Wii Fit Hula Hooping for them afterwards. I'll let you know how much I make in tips.

Cheers!

Thanks for stopping by guys.

I'll have to check out flyleaf. I think I have actually heard of them.

I think Paramore are a little more rocking than Avril. I haven't listened much to Avril, but her popular songs I think are still pretty good. I think I'd compare Paramore a little more closely to Evanescence.

I reckon you should make a video of you doing the Hula Hooping on the Wii!
