I bust out of Poker After Dark satellite. Shana Hiatt will have to wait to meet me, I guess.
I bust out of a $1 90-man tournament on Full Tilt. I win $1.83 for the 2 hours spent on that tournament.
Finish 4th in $4 180-seat tournament I started before the Poker After Dark satellite. I win $57.60!
I move Aurora from our bed to her bed on the floor. This isn’t unusual. I usually have to move a kid to go to bed a few times a month.
Aurora crawls out of her bed and into bed with Grammie and me. No big deal, but it wakes me just enough so that I can hear….
Harley whining outside my door. I forgot to let him out before bed the night before. There are about 5 frogs chirping. A week ago during our warm ‘snap’ there were 500. I like 5 better than 500. It’s cute.
I return to bed.
All I can think about trying to get back to sleep is that I need to remember to get up and take out the trash. Oh, and how can be 1st place in chips out of 4 and then finish 4th. Oh, and I wonder if this means I’m postive ROI (return on investment) in my $4 tournaments, since it has been a while since I’ve won money in one.
I get out of bed and take the trash to the curb.
I make coffee.
I import tourney summaries and see I have spent 57.20 in $4/180-man tourney entries and fees since 2/18 (the day I swore I’d play 250 45-man tournies.. I’ve played 66, with an ROI of 16% and think I’ve run moderately bad). My 4th place cash won me 57.60. I’m .40 ahead, rock on. I wonder again why I’m playing these tournies. I look at my overall statistics and see I’ve played 83 of these tournaments, and won $652.32, for a net win of $287.12. Oh, that’s probably why. I’ve played 226 $1 tournaments with winnings of $349, so a net win of $77.90. Oh, and yes, I claimed gambling winnings on my taxes.
"I could go back to sleep," I think, while sipping my coffee.
