Awesome.  General consensus would be that you should have a poker roll of like $60,000 to grind 3/6.  

I had crashed and burned down to like $36, then got 2nd last night in a 2/180.  Up to $98 now, taking tonight off since the wife leaves to visit her folks tomorrow.
The pots seem bigger online playing 3/6. At the local casino, thats the smallest game they have--and I cant remember the last time I saw a $200 pot. So, yeah I was gamblin'. I logged on, and didnt have much time to play. THere were no available .50/1.00 tables, I was on a bad run so I decided to try for a quick hit. Worked better tahan expected. Played 3 simultaneous $1.75 single table SNGs and got a 2nd and 1st for a $5 profit. Up to $270. I will likely cash out all but $50 this weekend.

the 2 guys that stayed in had KJ for straights. I had been playing multiple tables at .50/100 most of the week and just treading water. I'll probably go back to those games now and some single table sngs. I'll play some of the tourneys this weekend when I can commit a few hours straight if needed. Now I have $265 in pstars from my latest $15 buy in (was down to $4.75ish when I finished 2nd in the 180 player tourney).
GOTO had AQ, I'm guessing.

Good times.

playing a bit loosely tonight. Played some double or nothings..did alright. Down $15. Was playing 3 simultaneous 180 player SNGs. Still in one, But Im 35 of 37 at 1st break. Need a quick double up.

Got all in with AK, lost to A9. Going play a few low limit cash tables and see how its flowing.

Won 20+ in less than 1/2 hour playing 5 simultaneous 1/2 tables. Got back to $270. Calling it a night.

Wish I could get into playing cash.  I just hate it.  Degen'ed off most of my BR out of boredom again, so I'm back to grinding 1/45s.  Gonna try to make myself play nothing but those until I get to $100, then mix in some 3/45s and 2/180s

been up and down. I cashed out all but $50 of the $270. Lost that in a bad run of .50/1 cash. I was getting greedy and playing like 7 tables at once. When it went bad at one table, it affected me at others. Put in another $20, and played a single table $16 SNG. Came in 2nd, and grinded a bunch of $5.20 DON. Had a bad run at those Sat night with my first losing session. Decided to try to make a big run, so I put in another $10 to have enough for a $52 DON. Won that, and then another tonight. Sitting at $149.95 from the $30 combined buy ins. Altogether since I started playing again, Im up $440..The vast majority of that was from tournaments. The only real exception was that hand of 3/6 I posted.

3 for 3 in $5.20 DON Turbos. Im bed.
9/9/2010 12:33 AM
3 for 6 in 5.20 DON
1 for 1 in 52.00 DON

up to $210.95

Three straight 2nd places in 6-man $20 SnGs.  The first two were to rivered two-outers (TPTK losing to a rivered set and top two losing to another rivered set), but a nice little +$60 for the week.

I hate DON's.

Haven't had much going lately, but I may play the mini-FTOPS $20+2 Rush turbo Saturday at 5.

I cant decide if I like DONs or not. I do like that I profitted $150 on 3 of them the last 3 nights. I decided to cash out all but $30. Otherwise I'd be very likely to go on a horrible run after I inevitably lose one of those $50 DONs.  Will probably play some low limit SNGs and maybe some $5 DONs to try and build up again. I havent played the heads up knockout in awhile. May give that a shot. Ive done horribly in my few efforts at that after I got the 2nd place awhile back..

won 18 player 3.40 SNG after losing a few chips in cash gamage. Up $15 on the day after the cash out yesterday.
