So I got home from class at 3:30 today, and instead of doing what I planned on, which happened to be literally anything that wasn't poker, I sat down in front of my computer, opened my AIM status bar, and typed in the word "LOCKDOWN!" as if I were in an episode of 2M2MM. It was time to grind a Tuesday afternoon like never before.
I highly doubt that I've ever played 40 mtt's in a day (mtt's and mtt sng's), at least until now. I felt oddly at ease, even as I bricked my first 21 90 man's on ftp after running so hilariously bad that I started laughing to myself. (Got some KO's tho...)
I decided that I was running way too bad, and do what I always do when I run bad for a few days- change the "variables" on my computer; that is to say, my ftp avatar (went from the rooster to the little fluffy dog), and my desktop background (from a hot pic of Katy Perry sticking her tongue out, to a hot picture of Katy Perry just being hot and Katy Perry). It took about 15 minutes, but I finally ran kind of hot in one, in a sense that once I got 3 handed, one of the other guys at the table literally shoved every hand irregardless of stack sizes, letting me call pretty well perfectly with K high and win. Immediately after winning that one, I bought in to a few more to completely relinquish the profit that I had on the day.
It took me until hour 9 of my session to get back in to the positive, after ft'ing a $6/90 and $3/90 at the same time, taking 8th in the $6 after AK<AT aipf, and 2nd in the $3, though I don't remember the bustout hand.
I was originally planning on playing until about 7-8 am, but my roommates were upstairs in the living room and it sounded like they were having fun and laughing and such and kept yelling downstairs at me to come up and hang out, so I decided that what I had up was going to be the end of it.
I brought my laptop upstairs and quickly got down to 2 tables, and then shortly after, down to just one of the daily doubles after punting the stack in the other tourney. Long story longer, I FT'ed the daily double B and came 6th to cap off a 12.5 hour session, and a profitable one at that.
It kind of stinks that I won't be able to play tomorrow (Girl Talk ftw!!!!) because I feel 100x better about poker now than I did at the time of writing my last entry, and felt that way even before finally making some money. Who knows, I might wake up early and play a few before going to get wasted before the concert, but I doubt it.
