You can still cross the border with just licence and birth cert. (we did it yesterday to go to the Sabres/Habs game) - only need passport if you're flying in.

Yeah, but I'd probably be flying out of Thunder Bay... maybe. I suppose I could drive to MSP.Either way, I still would like to get a passport ASAP, I've been putting it off for too long now.

Absolute:--------$265.......(+115)Bodog:----------$322........(-28)Pokerstars:------$167.......(+17)FullTilt:-----------$10...........00000000 focking $26 Tokens. :club: :D :D Was up to about $500 at Bodog until I decided to become the worst PLO8 player on the interwebs!!! Taking a break from that game for a while.I finally had a decent month at AP which was a relief after losing more than half my roll there, cashing out and dropping down. I don't keep track of how I do in each variant of poker but I'm pretty sure I took it on the chin in 6-max LHE at AP. Need to start reading the SHLHE forum a little more and see if I can turn it around.Just got my tax refund and my vacation check for +7K. Probably go to Vegas for a week around WSOP time and start looking at condos and speak to reps from the union about how things are out there. And maybe play a little of this "poker" game you guys are always talking about. :)Oh yeah, I fell asleep and missed the AP $15K monthly freeroll, which I was gonna win, obviously.

Iggy, has the PLO final gone ahead yet?If not, be sure to make a thread somewhere on FCP when you play it, i and a lot of other people(i'm assuming) would love to watch.
It's looking like Tuesday or Thursday of next week is when we'll get the match done. My opponent's in LA this weekend and I'm going to be busy most of Monday afternoon/evening.

sweeet, you really need to make the 2-3 hour drive down to Foxwoods and meet up with Me and Naismith and Timwakfield and assorted crew...
It's a 5 hour drive for me. :(While I'd love to watch the Foxwoods Poker Classic ME, I can't - I'd be back in class by the time the WPT rolls around though. If I called and reserved a room tomorrow or Monday, how soon would it be available? I'd love to get up there for some limit games.We've already talked about Stud Hi tables, but if you have any information on Foxwood's LHE, Stud 8/Razz (if they spread them as standalone games) or O8 (I really really suck at all things Omaha, but I'll play it if there's a bunch of dumbasses), IM me - I won't go higher than 5/10 though.

I'd love some serious responses on this. Thank you. I have been taking playing poker online very seriously for about two months. I have played alot before that, but just donked around and didn't play too seriously. I currently have a bankroll (started this month at $500) for .10/.25 NL which I have been playing pretty constantly for two or three months now. I feel as though I can beat these games, but I have had a hard time with discipline in the past and lose money taking a shot at heads up or playing above my roll (for instance, I played a few sessions at 1/2 and even on at 2/4 and do well overall, but it only takes a few gross setup hands [kings vs aces or aces vs a set] to lose a lot of profit that I made at .10/.25).So, my March goal is to play only four tables at a time and only play .10/.25. There is to be no exception to this rule. I usually play 5 days a week, for around an hour a day, which means about 400 hands a day and sometimes on the weekend. I don't think I'll have a hard time getting in around 8000 hands for the month (I am traveling to Nicaragua for a week, so I wont be playing at all then).What do you think a realistic goal in terms of profit is for this month? I did get to play a little this weekend (around 400 hands) and have a profit of $86 already for the month.Thanks for the help and reading.

You figure him for a draw, so I like that you made that bitch pay on the turn.


An e-mail from my dad, who is a weekend online super low limit, only for fun player:
"Hey Bud,
What is a "donk"?
I was small blind, had 2 and 3 off suit, with a 100 raise. I called.
Flop was 5, 2, 2. They raised, so I came over the top. We ended up all in and I won.
He asked my how I could call a $100 with a 2 & a 3. My reply was "just hit the call key". I think I ticked them off.
What do you think? That is when he called me a "donk".
Love you
Dad"

8000 hands of 6max NLHE is nothing. a big winner could easily have a 8000 hand losing stretch. and a big winner could have a huge rush. so the answer is -$500 to $800.sorry, i know that's not the answer you're looking for, but it's the best i can do.
if you're not playing the notes in front of you it's not mozart.

Bro, just play hands, don't worry about your winnings, just make sure you're playing solid poker. I know you're pretty dedicated to learning the game, as evidence from your posts in the NL forum. So, just stick with it. Like navy said, 8k isn't nearly enough for any sort of regression to the mean, meaning you can't reasonably expect your winrate in that given stretch to be close to your true winrate. So, just play hands, focus on making correct decisions, and the money will come.

I didn't give myself a goal for February cuz I was on vacation at the start of the month, and didn't really know how many hands I was going to get to play, etc. Somehow...it ended up being the best month I've had since I came "back" in August. Only got in about 9k hands, but I really feel like I was playing well.Posted ImageGoal for march - MORE HANDS - 15-20k hopefully. Decent winrate - I'd be happy with 5 ptbb/100. Hopefully be fully rolled to go back to $50plo by the end of the month, if not then early to mid aprilGood luck boys & girls

Finished about +$110 for February, which for me is fantastic. I'd like to break $500 total profit on sharkscope before the end of March, which maybe possible if I play enough.
