Lost again! I played for about a 1/2 hour and didn’t win a single hand, not one. Besides calling a few preflop hands that I should have folded on, and playing a few hands a bit too conservatively, I don’t think I made any horrible calls. It is very frustrating.
After losing early yesterday, I spent much of the day day dreaming about today and how much my luck would change – would have to change – and that I’d have a full fun day of poker playing and making my comeback. But noooo.
After losing it all (5 quid) this morning, I was this close to buying some more chips. I’m still thinking about it. Yes, I’m totally weak, and I probably have a problem, but I don’t care. It’s so much fun to play. Can you really have a problem with a vice if you don’t mind it? I figure that by writing this post, I’ll get some of my frustrations out, and this will restrain me until tomorrow. But that’s so far away.
I know what you’re thinking, “For God’s sake, it’s only 5 quid, which is about 8 dollars. Stop whining and just play some more”. But it’s not the money. Well, it’s not entirely about the money. There is some principle involved. I’m testing a theory. I’m furthering knowledge. Blah, blah, blah.
I have about 21 quid left. This means I can lose 4 1/5 more days in a row, and if I do, I will then certainly learn a new principle, namely that I really have no idea why I win when I win and why I lose when I invariably lose.
