Foxwoods; Mobile Blogging?

Well, my mobile blogging didn't work today. At least not yet. Although the email I sent yesterday posted without a problem, for some reason, it didn't work today. I wrote this on the train this morning and waited for it to show up until now. I am just gonna post it the old fashion way. Also not sure what the problem is with the picture I uploaded. Anyway...

Last day for me at work for the week. Drewsmom and I are headed to Foxwoods tomorrow morning and staying until Friday. It is her birthday tomorrow so while she is at the spa doing what women do, I will be hitting the tables.

I love planning the attack when we make this occasional trip. Other than when I went in December, we went in August, but hadn't been for about 2 years before that. Foxwoods is the only legal poker show around for me. We live about 2 and a half hours away so the trips so at a minimum. Anyway, I love playing craps and whenever I have been in the past, the table minimums have been too high to play. I hear during the week, the tables can be found at $5 so I might be using some of my poker cash there first.

The plan is to play craps with $100 and either double up or lose it. I have had a lot of success in Vegas playing $5 craps, so we'll see. From there, I will be spending the rest of my time in the poker room, while drewsmom slips into a relaxed state.

I have never gone any higher than $2/$4 limit games at Foxwoods. It is a chasers dream as I probably talked about in my December post. Still, I don't have the confidence to play NL cash games down there, so that is probably where I will spend a lot of time.

My goal is to win my buyin to the Friday morning, 8am tourney, which is $100. I guess they usually pretty much fill the tourney up at 250 people so the winner gets a nice big chunk of cash. I have had a lot of success/luck/non-bad luck in large MTT live tournaments, so I want to see where I stand. No big expectations of course, but I want to see how I do.

I figure the 2 days are going to cost me about $300 in gambooling money that could really be better spent as an addition to my online bankroll, but oh well. It will be fun.

Speaking of my paltry bankroll, I decided to cash out from Ultimate Bet and ended up depositing $100 at Interpoker through Klopzi's pimpage. Figured he was working it pretty hard, might as well give him some love.

I started out doing pretty well and was up about $10 on the 25c/50c limit tables. I also got into a 10c/25c NL table for a little bit because I didn't know they were $25 tables until I sat. I won a small pot or 2 and ran away before I gave away my money.

Last night I actually played some 7 card stud and was up big after I played like 3 hands. Fell back to reality though and ended down about $5. I cleared a bunch of hands toward the bonus though. Unfortunately, the swing are too big for my bankroll right now. It will be back to low fixed this hold em this weekend on Interpoker.

I'll send my live blogs from Foxwoods over the next couple days. Maybe they will even post?

As a fellow MA blogger do me a favor, if you play in the MTT at Foxwoods, give me the scoop.. I have been thinking of playing in one of those..

Sorry about not getting back to you about the image posting thing. I know jack-diddly-squat about posting images.

I'm an internet developer and I know nothing about the Internet or networking: I guess that's why they pay me the big bucks.

Jebus, I never check my affiliate pages because I always assume no one will sign up.

Thanks very much. All I can say is that the ring games are uber-loose on Friday nights and all weekend. Their actually so loose that I have problems sometimes.

But the reload bonuses are absolutely bankroll is made up by Interpoker bonuses.

If you happen to play any of the NL games, let me know what you think. I'm assuming that they're always super loose due to the casino crowd pouring in from Intercasino.

Anyway, let me know if you have any complaints, concerns, questions about Interpoker - I've been there a while and can help out.

Good luck at Foxwoods this weekend. I'm jealous of anyone who can play live poker in a casino.

They still don't have poker at the Casino de Hull. And still no free drinks either. Sometimes, Canadians can be so damned cheap...

Klopzi, np, just figured I would ask. No frickin idea where the hell that image is now. Emailed support and got the standard "look on our support site dumbass" email reply. Oh well, it is a great picture too.

Interpoker has been interesting so far. I am going to jump out there now and see what damage I can do.
