I was outed in the comments of my last post for being boring. I can't argue the point - especially this week. Prior to this post I dropped one other post on thine asses this week - that being on Monday - and then pretty much dropped the ball the rest of the week. I didn't drop the ball in life, as I have a ton of shit going on at work, but this blog got the cold shoulder accordingly.

In my head I felt funny as all-get-out all week. I just never transferred it to the blog. That's like dreaming about being a porn star, then waking up and realizing you are Wawfuls. Well, maybe it's not like that, but whatever. So anyway, just know I was hilarious all week, but none of that made it here. Suckaz.

I played the Mookie this week, but fizzled just before the final 3 tables. I thought I played well, but that didn't transfer to a final table. Not having played for a while online, I felt I really needed to try and keep focus. I've found the best way to do this is to play one table and maximize it to full screen. I never once looked at any other program or even brought up the lobby. When I was knocked out, I didn't know if there were 20 or 50 people remaining.

I'm not sure if this is good strategy wise, but for whatever reason, I tend to play a better game when I'm not focused on how many people are remaining, or where I stack up against the chip leader, or even who the chip leader is. It's very easy to get caught up in all the factors of a poker tournament that really don't mean much to your game. Sure it's good to know info about the tourney, but for the most part, you can get it from the table.

Not ever looking at the lobby, I was able to focus on my table and how I stacked up against the blind structure and the stacks at the table with me. I was able to focus on when best to increase or decrease my aggression based on the players, their stacks and how many people were seated at the table. There is a point in a tournament, based on the blind levels and number of people seated at your table, that you can get a pretty good idea of when you are nearing the final table.

I guess my point is, if you are having troubles with your game and/or focus, you might want to give this a try. Don't open ANY other programs on your computer - except for poker software directly related to tracking or enhancing the table experience - and then maximize your screen and give 100% focus to the game. I may have finished somewhere around 18th in the Mookie this week, but I felt much better about my game in the process.

For the two people and one really smart ferret that read my blog, but for whatever reason not Hoys, I thought I would mention he did a follow up to my Dewey Checkum & Rayez post. That post was all about Lawyers and Poker and I was happy to see a poker playing lawyer jump in the mix and respond with their own post. His post and the comments everyone from both posts have been very interesting.

Before I go, I have to point you to this post. I'm on Kaja's home game evite list and, I swear eventually I will make it to a game. With it being about 6 hours away though, I'm really gonna have to make a good trip out of it. That's not an easy drive to make there and back if you get your aces cracked in the first 10 minutes. I know there are cash games and all, but you get my point. I promise to make it before Vick gets out of jail. In the meantime, I'm glad my bro is able to make the game. He will take your money for me biatches.

Being on the evite, I do still try and respond accordingly. This time around, I whipped out my 10th grade humor meter and found this response appropriate:

Will you be able to attend?
Answer: No
Comment/Reason: I have syphilis.

I figured the high school humor would end there, but my boy Kajagoogle, not one to disappoint, whipped out that fine post for us all to enjoy. Thank you good sir and please keep the nickels coming. For every $.10 I receive I'll give you a nickelback.

Until next time, may the felt be with you .

Common antibiotics such as penicillin, tetracycline and erythromycin all work against syphilis.

I hope you can get better and make his home game soon.
