Things are going well in the land of poker.

I’ve been playing poker online for about two and a half years now, on and off. At the beginning, I was mainly playing low Limit Hold Em, on PartyPoker. Back in May or so, I switched to PokerStars, and once I started there, I was mainly playing Sit and Go tournaments.

I had been doing pretty well with the whole tournament end of things, so I stuck with that. Occasionally, I’d venture into play some very low stakes NL Hold Em, but not to frequently. I wouldn’t keep too much money in the PS account, so I never really had the bankroll to play much in the NL cash arean.
Over the last week or so, however, I’ve started to spend most of my time playing the 1/2 NL tables, and my-oh-my has it been a sweet ride. I have gone up by the factor of several 1/2 maximum buy ins (the max buy in is 200). While this is, of course, just short-run success, it’s fairly encouraging.
Last night, after a couple of winning sessions, I decided to pick up PokerOffice which is a tool that tracks your performance in the online rooms. It also tracks the performance of your opponents by observing them while you have tables open, which is a neat. As far as I’m concerned, it’s already paid for itself, as when I opened a table to take the program for a test run, I earned back the money I spent on it in about 30 minutes.

The main thing about it that’s helpful, though, is it’s the tracking of my own results. I’ve always had a vague sort of idea that I’ve been a winning player over all, if just slightly so. Now, however, I’ve got some numbers to actually back my impressions up, and the ability to go in and find out where I’ve been messing up.

The other new thing I’ve been experimenting with this weekend is multi-tabling. I’ve always been really adverse to the idea, as I’d figured it’d be confusing or too pressuring… and at first it was. Right now, I’m sticking with trying to get the hang of playing just two tables at once. I’ve definitely made a few extra mistakes while trying this out, but over all, it seems to be growing on me.

Anyway, I’m pretty excited that I’ve been doing well, but I’m also aware that these results so far are just short-term. We’ll see if I can keep it up.

    Just apply the milk on your scalp and tie a towel
    or some cloth around your hair to prevent loss of the milk from your hair.
    Those with tresses that lack shine may benefit from using grape seed oil or perhaps coconut
    oil. People often make a mistake and only apply oil on the hairs while massaging head with coconut oil,
    hairs cannot absorb any thing hence massaging hairs can only make them shine temporarily but
    cannot nourish them, for proper nourishment one
    needs to massage the scalp as hairs take all the nourishment from
    their roots which are located in the scalp.
