Welcome to the beginning of my poker blog. I'll write every once in a while about games I play both online and live.
My main site is: Sayville Poker Tour
, which contains information about local tournaments
my friends and I play.
I'm too busy to post anything these days or play much poker.

According to pokercharts I am up 94 dollars in the last 4 days and I have spent 10% of my waking life playing poker this week.
Played in live tournaments the last two nights. Tuesday night I played at Phil's I played like garbage in the relatively inexperienced field of 7 and got knocked out 5th.
Wednesday night was the Tieds Invitational tournament for the top 8 people in the Sayville Poker Tour. Tough competition. I played like garbage (until it got down to the end and I picked up some cards). Ended up first (it was winner take all Erin and I split it - I had more chips). That's luck for ya I guess. I need to work on a couple things I'm doing wrong.
I'm not going to be playing for a couple days now at least. I dunno if I'll play online again for a while. Maybe a bit on saturday or sunday when I'm working from home :-(
I played online for the first time in a while last night. Had a decent 1/2 session. Tough suckout on river in NL 25 but that's poker
Recently, I've had alot more fun in live games than online. I'm playing another one over Phil's tonight. I started using Poker Charts
to track my results. It's a good way to track your live game stats. I am currently +64 (after that big sunday tournament only).
I guess most obviously it's the social aspect that makes me enjoy live games better. Also I feel like I'm better able to concentrate and have a bit of fun. Alot of times playing online feels like a chore where my only goal is to be up money. Maybe there's an attitude shift necessary. Or I shouldn't play online so much. Prolly some goal would help me enjoy online play more. We'll see where that goes.
Played in two big live tournaments last week. Wednesday's I got 4th out of 12 to get my money back. In Sunday's big tournament I finished 3rd out of 29 to take home a decent profit. So that ends the Sayville Poker Tour season, it was alot of fun overall. It's alot to host a game every week with all those people so I wouldn't do it like that again.
I finished 4th in the final rankings based on my performance in the last tournament and the other big tournaments. I regret losing my way in the middle of the season and posting some bad results. The good news is I feel like my game is turning around when it comes to live No Limit tournaments. I'm hoping to continue this momentum this week.
