Surfin', Readin', Gamblin'

Every since I started taking poker seriously again - something which I aim to do at least once or twice a year - I've been reading a lot. I estimate that I read three to four poker-related books a week. You can imagine how much I'm looking forward to receiving my four new books from Amazon in next couple months. In the meantime, I'm re-reading the Sklansky/Miller opus No-Limit Hold'em: Theory and Practice. I'm starting to feel like I'm back in school again with all the studying that I've been doing...

Tonight I'll put my ever-refining poker skills to the test at Titan Poker's $100 NL tables. I'm still playing short-stack poker because it suits me quite well. The tables' big stacks think they can bully me and try to put me all-in on marginal holdings: of course, I'm happy to call with my typically solid hands.

I've also continued to look over countless notebook computer specs in a vain attempt to find my perfect poker computer. I've decided that I'd be happy with a notebook that has a WSXGA+ (1680x1050) LCD screen. A WSXGA+ screen would allow me to play two tables with zero overlap or four tables with some minor overlap. Unfortunately, WSXGA+ notebook computers are even harder to find than the poker-perfect WUXGA (1920x1200) notebook computers. Why do I drive myself crazy with this stuff? I think some might argue that I have an obsessive personality at times.

I've also looked briefly into the prospect of completing a player to player transfer on InterPoker in order to facilitate the extraction of my $100 worth of casino money at InterCasino. No luck. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe I read that InterPoker has not allowed PTP transfers for quite some time.

But I'm getting ahead of myself with all this supercomputer and money-transfer talk. Tonight is about the poker. Tomorrow, I'll see if I can post a session review to help me better understand and accept the bad beats or lucky hands from tonight's session.

Have a good one.
