From the Cheap Seats

Wednesday, December 15

Same old

Not much to post. I haven't been playing too much online lately. I know I said work would quiet down by now but that plan seems to have gone out the window. I am busier than ever. On top of that, with all the holiday shopping, parties, and the now in full swing ski season poker has taken a back seat. I got in two full days of skiing a couple weekends ago which was a nice warm up to get my body reacquainted with exercise. I will be up at Killington, VT again this coming weekend. Next week, it's a full dose of family. My girlfriend and I are heading down to Miami to spend Christmas with my parents on the beach. Since it is currently snowing outside, I am very much looking forward to a few days bumming around the beach. Beautiful weather in Miami next week.

To get back to gambling, I have been playing a little bit. I finished up the OIC at the gaming club up 75 whole cents. I almost busted out. When I was down to $15, I went into maniac mode but ended up doing well and came back up to 50. I ended the challenge in 55th place out of 175.

I've been playing exclusively at PStars lately and decided that I should try out some other sites. I think I will try Absolute next week. In the mean time though I have been playing some blackjack. Thanks to scurvydog for posting a guide to casino bonuses. I have done, a couple of the sites and am working on the third. The first one went well, I was up over the 800 hands I played. The second one on the other hand was a disaster. I was doing $2 bets again and ended up losing all the bonus and most of the deposit. Oh well. I am still profitable on the whole thing.

Well, that's all for now. It was good to read all the trip reports from the blogger excursions to Vegas. Wish I could have been there. Unfortunately, I have never made a trip to sin city. Next spring.
