The Big Sleep

Got home from the basketball game last night after watching our hometown high school heroes get run out of the gym by a bunch of short, extremely talented white kids and decided to play some poker. With the PS account back down hovering in the low two-digit range (where's my bailout, Mr. Obama?), I chose to enter the $5.50 PLO8 tournament at 2140.

It quickly became apparent that any online poker would be a mistake. I was dog tired after a long week and found myself struggling to stay awake. But the other button-pushing monkeys out there, unaware of my altered consciousness, decided to gift me a bunch of chips, so many that by the time the bubble broke three hours later, I had a top 5 stack. (654 runners/99 paid.)

My good fortune could not overcome the need for sleep, however. With about 60 monkeys left, I went from nodding off for a few seconds to a deep REM state. Perhaps an hour later, I woke up to discover that my stack had been eroded to the point where I was in 12th place with 15 players remaining. (I went from around 100K to 55K, not a huge loss.) It was now 2:30 a.m., but I did feel refreshed.

Long story short, I nursed what remained of my chips, made the final table with the shortest stack of about 6BBs and ended up finishing 4th for a $240 profit.

It's a welcome boost to the bankroll, having grown tired of reloading every couple of weeks to pay for my latest addiction -- 6max PLO. I'm not too good at this game yet, but I'm breaking even after about 2,500 hands and am having fun learning the game. I just need to make sure I remain awake.

I made a very big mistake being tired once - my eyes deceived me and I went all-in when I shouldn't have - beware of tired eyes!

1. For STRICT Whitehat sites, it is advised to create buffers to pass on linkjuice. i.e. social bookmarks, cloaked pages etc.
You can blast the site directly, but it entails risk.
Using buffers are 100% safe, speaking from experience.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
