Change of Pace

First, the good news. I went to the doctor this afternoon and he confirmed that it’s probably just a bruise on my heel and though it may hurt quite a bit, it will heal on it’s own. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the gel heel cushion he recommended at the pharmacy in my building so I’m going to have to continue to lurch around on the ball of my foot. I’m going to keep icing it regularly and hope that it might be ready to go for my second playoff volleyball game in two weeks. Hopefully my team can manage to pull off the victory tonight.

The bad news is that another of my pool players is injured. We drafted our players on Saturday before the regular season was over because it was the best chance we had to all get together. But while Bondra seems to be ok after taking that elbow from Domi on Saturday night, Kariya went down in his game yesterday and a questionable start in the first rounds. Because we did it early, I should be able to replace the pick, but I’m not sure who else I would choose. I loaded up with some Avalanche players in the west because I figure between all their scorers and questionable keeper, they should have some nice long, high scoring series.

The best news is I found my game again. I hit the NL25 tables at Empire at 5:30 and managed to triple up in about 40 minutes. I was also playing a .5/1 table as well, just to help keep the boredom at bay, but only ended up breaking even there. But, that makes up for most of my loss yesterday. I think I may follow Iggy‘s advice and stay away from the 1/2 tables. I’ll work on my bankroll at multi-table .5/1 and NL25 until I can skip up to 2/4. For whatever reason those 1/2 tables have been cursed and as much as I’d like to see that big red number in the 1/2 row in Poker Tracker turn green, it’s a big hill right now.

    actually, here’s my thinking on said topic: tp doesn’t play shorthanded so there were about 15-20 1.2 full tables. there are about 200 50.1 tables and 170 2.4 tables available. per game selection – you obviously have a much better selection at those two limits than 1.2, unless you play shorthanded. just my humble two cents. :)

    There’s also the fact that I’ve sucked it up there.
