I went to Casino Niagara over the weekend and played poker there for the first time. I sat at the lavish $1-$2 no-limit table, and bought in for $100. My hands were shaking. After a few hands, I got comfortable. In the first hour, I was up somewhere close to $80.
In the second hour, I got tired. Impatient. Started making poor decisions. I cut myself off and cashed in around 12:30AM. +$24 ... wicked, I won! Too bad my wife lost $120.
Thank you, David Sklansky. Phil Gordon. Doyle Brunson. All of your readings have finally paid off!
