Made it through day 1 of LAPC

More to tell later but the story is I have 21,225. I have had an up and down day-- played well and got lucky when I had to but played poorly in a couple of big pots that hurt my position.

I am mounting a comeback, though, seeing as how I was down to 825 chips in the small blind at 200/400/50. I'll tell about that later, too.

For now I'm just going to bed though.

I can't believe I forgot to write in the last six weeks

I'm currently in Los Angeles, hoping to play in the LA Poker Classic tomorrow. I say "hoping" because I haven't won my seat yet and my failure to bring a second form of ID has made obtaining cash exceedingly difficult. I'm going to have to make a run to a bank tomorrow or find someone here who can help me.

Since Australia nothing particularly noteworthy has happened; I've had a few decent cashes but no kind of major breakthrough. I've started to expand my game roster, because I'm getting a little bored with $100 online NLH tournaments. So I'm getting back into cash games, trying to develop a consistent winning strategy (very different from my "see every flop" live deep-stacked strategy... 100BB aggressive 6-max games don't work like that).

I'm also playing more limit hold 'em. I like the aggressive nature of shorthanded high-limit games, though I'm terrible at saving bets. I'm pretty sure I'm a winner at 30/60, though, at least so far.

I'm going to head back to Syracuse after the tournament, to rest and relax. I've been on the road too much lately, and a lot of that time has been spent drinking and partying with old friends of mine down south. I intend to really rest and get better, so I'll be in top shape for my next goal: Foxwoods.
