playing poker and teaching science: Painful truth update:
My Photo
Location: Indiana, United States

I'm a middle school science teacher, wrestling coach, poker player, scuba diver, aikido black belt, amateur writer, and student of life. In the past I have tried to give back a little by volunteering at a children's home in Belmopan, Belize, Central America. I also love Frosted Flakes. I have taken a year sabbatical from my teaching position in order to sail the Caribbean. Does that sound crazy to you?

Painful truth update:

All right children, gather 'round. I'm going to tell you a bedtime story:

2005 on line totals:
April 30, -- $179
May 30, -- $375
June 30 -- $610
July 30 -- $1197

There hasn't been much change in my online play at Party. Good hands, good position, reel in the fish. I have had a couple of days where my concentration slips and I forget my mantra, "You don't have to win very many hands!"

Case in point I call with A 10 suited in clubs in early position and there is a raise and a reraise after me. I fold this hand, right? If an ace falls I'm beat. If a 10 falls I'm beat. It's 160 to one (or something like that I forget) that I flop a winner. CAP IT!!!!! What is it about suited clubs that looks so appealing? To me a suited ace in clubs is the siren's call that becons me into the capped pot and giggles on the beach as I crash into the rocks. I flop second pair and lose to aces.

That took a max win day (remember, I get out when up $45-$50) and made it a below average win day.

I've experimented twice on playing later in the day with great success. I went up $100 in about 20 minutes one day and up $35 in10 minutes another so I think afternoon play requires more investigation.
