So the other day I was saying how I had 3 days to make 7K to avoid my worst month in a year. My graph of day 1. I'm pretty sure this is my best day ever: $7.8K (75% 2/4 and 25% 3/6). I wish I could say it was all skillful play, but when you start talking about making almost 90 cents a hand at 2/4 to 3/6, there was plenty of luck involved. Disaster averted! Well, I suppose I still have 1.5 days to mess things up. Maybe Mrs. Fly needs to make me an indecent proposal to get me off the computer the next two days, for my own protection.
Assuming I don't go into another relapse, this will bring my break-even stretch to 112K hands, which happens. Also, I played for some time at 1/2 working on some things and started playing a new game (6max), so this probably lasted longer than it may have otherwise. The most important thing is I feel good about my play (altho I'm still a work in progress) and my prospects going forward.
WHAT'S FOR DINNER?
Not sure if this is a diss of my "poker" blog, but someone made a request for more food. So I dedicate this meal to JasonS from 2+2 - corny beef... Um... I mean corned beef. Okay - that was corny.
One of the things I miss about living in Manhattan is getting good cured meats. We used to live within walking distance of the Second Ave Deli and Sarge's, and the Carnegie Deli and Katz's was just a short commute away. Nothing beats a good 1+lb pastrami and corned beef sandwich on rye. Unfortunately, in the food variety wasteland known as Southern Connecticut, this is the only way I can get my fix. It's nowhere near as good as any of the aforementioned NYC delis, but it's better than going to the cold cut section of your supermarket. I have no idea what that crap is they are trying to pass off as pastrami and corned beef in the meat counter.
It's from a package in the supermarket, so anyone can make the corned beef at home. Mrs. Fly sauteed the cabbage with bacon. Imagine that! Because otherwise, let's face it... cabbage tastes like... well... cabbage. Mrs. Fly says pork and cabbage is a classic combination. Okay - if you say so. Personally, I try and avoid the latter whenever possible. The thing on the top is a refreshing diced vegetable salad Mrs. Fly ripped off from one of her friends. She edited 2 cookbooks, so she's good at finagling recipes from people.
