WSPL Goes to Vegas Episode 03/05

So I've decided I'm no longer any good at poker. In fact I'm pretty terrible. I have no reads on anyone. Every time I try to take a stab at a pot I get raised, every time I'm tentative I find that I was ahead, and get sucked out on. The only thing that ever seems to go right on me is playing 72o. I got it in the BB this time around. The small blind was the only other player in the pot and he limped in. The flop was rags, he bet and I raised forcing him to fold. Other than that. Bad night for me.

I'm incredibly frustrated with my play lately. I think a lot of it has to do with rust, but I don't know how to fix that. Online play isn't an option any more, except for this league, and I don't have time to go to the casino. At this point I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be playing in the WSOP this year unless I can convince a lot of people to stake me. It would take a miracle for me to place in the top two of the league, and I've had a few very large and unexpected house expenses that have made my wallet a bit weepy. I don't think I can justify the full buy in this year.

We'll see.  It looks like there is going to be a large group of people going to Vegas this year so I'm at least going to do that.   Maybe things will turn around by then.

 Here are the standings for this week, and overall.
  1. Greg
  2. Jason M
  3. Jason S
  4. Mark
  5. Aaron
  6. Noah
  7. Shane
  8. Jason K
  9. Me
  10. Archie

Over all.

  1. Aaron (41)
  2. Mark (36)
  3. Jason M (35)
  4. Archie (30)
  5. Shane (30)
  6. Jason S (30)
  7. Greg (26)
  8. Me (17)
  9. Jason K (16)
