I wanna be a Nacho Man!
I phoned the ex yesterday afternoon to arrange to have Nacho tonight and she said no as she still wants him around after the recent arson attack.At one point she even told me to "get another dog" and hung up.Well there's only one Nacho and he's my boy too, so I jumped in the car and drove over to her place.I managed to keep my sensible head on and we had a good chat.
I can totally understand why she would feel safer with him around after what has happened ,but although I reckon I'm coping ok with our breakup ,having Nacho around a few nights per week certainly helps keep me sane.The good news is that she called me this morning to say thanks for the cd's I'd burned for her, and to say that I could have him to stay tonight, and also take Step A to school when I drop him off tomorrow morning.
On the poker front I came 6th in the Bloggerment when I ran into Aces ( for the zillionth time in that tourney!).Congrats to Mr Cloud for casting off the bridesmaids dress and taking the whole show down, especially as I was taking the piss about the non-existent one outers he was ( or wasn't!) hitting!
I came 10th in the DTD game after pushing 55 into 1010.I still don't like that period in the middle of small mtt's when my stack is around 900-ish,the blinds are 75-150 and I pick up a small/medium pair in quite early position.
I think I still favour pushing, ( I will also push monsters here to mix it up) because I don't have enough chips to get any fold equity with a standard raise, and because a standard raise almost pot commits me anyway.I also don't want to get blinded away and by playing quite a tight game,I'd hope to get some credit for having a hand when I do shove.
No too much to report from my cash table play.I lost a $50 buy-in when I runner runnered an Ace flush, but the villain had made a boat on the river after the board paired.After watching more cardrunners vids I'm not going to be too harsh on myself for that one, as it was basically a cooler ,which would have been hard to get away from.I won back half of that loss and went to bed far too late at 2am.
Ok,thanks for reading.Back later in the week...
