Working The Wrong Shift

One of these days, I'm going to learn that playing online poker during the late morning and early afternoon on the weekdays sucks. It turns into a rock garden at the bottom limits.

Two days of poker to cover today... I played Thursday morning and it was ugly the first hour or so. I sat down at 1 50/1 table and promptly continued my streak of decent starting hands gone horribly wrong, mucking my way to a -$12 hole by the end of hour one. FINALLY things started to take a turn... Though not exactly what I'd call a run, I did manage to drag some meager pots (remember, rock garden) to scratch back to a $1.50 deficit by the time I had to head back to work. Not bad, considering the crap I was getting smacked around with.

Yesterday saw two sessions. I played another morning/afternoon run (I know, I know...) and found pretty much the same results. I never really fell apart this time, only ever ending up about $6 down, and I managed to scratch up a $1.50 win... even for the two days. I then put in an ultra-late session around 1:15am this morning. I'd have started earlier, but the last time I left work after my normal shift was some 2 months ago. It's a complete and thorough goat rope there... But anyway, I logged off at around 2:30 with a buck of profit to show for it. Weee...

Party pretty much shuts down after 1:00am, I think.. I logged on to find only 22K people on. By the time I logged off, it was down to 17K. On a Friday night. Go figure...
