Sunday Funday

Cut my Sunday grind well short of what I was hoping to get done today. As it always happens from time to time, the variance caught up with me and sent me reeling. Sure, I am only down 20 or so buy ins (about $10) but it was the fury of the bust outs and the way it happened that tilted me. The same old bad side of the coolers and losing more than my fair share of 2:1 dominated hands. So I quit. I was too tilted to continue and was beginning to play some bad poker. I would say it was about a 7 out of 10 on the old tilt-o-meter.

Anyways, time to eat some decent Chinese food and watch a new samurai sword fighting movie on Netflix.

Beat: tilt
Brag: Green onion cake
Variance: Laughing at my roommate getting his chest waxed.

My Choice is Tabledroid

Interesting couple days in the poker world.

First the G in NVG.

Twitter and 2p2 was blowing up these past couple days with Daniel Negreanu and Antonio Esfandiari getting ridiculed for attending Choice Center leadership seminars. I for one will be a little biased towards this decision, refer to my other blog to understand why. I personally have no problem with people spending big bucks to attend science of mind training seminars, I go to them myself. Choice may have it's problems but I believe the good far outweighs the bad. I would just like to see a bit more of an understanding approach from the poker community. So many negative responses to this small blip on the world social scale that is frustrates me. Can people not just try and see the good in everything? Sure, I will forever remain naive because of some of my personal life decisions, but I just don't understand why so many people are scared of this program before they go experience it themselves. It is so easy to join the bandwagon and bash people from behind a computer rather than go out and experience life for yourself. Part of the reason why there is so much negative response in the social media realm is because people who are strong minded enough to take this training seriously do not bother with what other people think about them. Anyways, that is my rant. I could go on and on...

I would just like to see a bit more LOVE in the world is all.

The real point of this post is to describe my love for Tabledroid in a verse.

Roses are Red
My boss is mean
Tabledroid rules
Now ship me the green

Really impressed with it albeit my first experience with a script type piece of software. I really just wanted something that will snap my tiled 12 tables into chronological order, which is something that I have not found yet. TD can do that according to BB which is almost as good, except for when I am mixing in my MTTs with my regular MTTSNGs. I get a bit of lag with it, but the hot keys more than make up for it. Some more fine tuning with it and I will be set. Support is great as well, since it is a smaller scale operation. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to start up being a mass table grinding zombie.

The study group is not coming along very well. Linked in has a bunch of techno-poker geeks but not many pros looking for a study group. Out of the few friends that have responded, none are really taking it as seriously as I. Most are just looking to get a better understanding of the game, like does a straight beat a flush, and the guys who have some decent poker sense are treating it as a get rich quick scheme. Trust me, it takes A LOT of time and effort and is by no means quick. Oh well, I am sure I will get some kind of network happening soon.

Set a new BR record today, combined over Stars and Tilt I am ~$175. I also broke 1000 tournaments today. Average ROI is 68% over wide variety of games ABI is somewhere ~$0.50, I am too lazy to try and figure out how to get it on HM2 at the moment.

Well, back to the old 9-5 and same thing tomorrow. GG GL.
