Great News! PokerStars let me change my screen name from "TripleFly" to "DoubleFlyPS." I used to also trade the occasional triple butterfly, but I just never liked the name. I was always a double butterfly guy. I first wrote them an email asking if I could take the "DoubleFly" SN, because according to PTR, no one was using it. But apparently it was taken, so I asked if I could switch SNs, and they said "yes." I never minded FT's lame customer support, which pretty much consists of copying and pasting pre-written sections of response text. But in the correspondences I had with Stars, it looked like the CS reps actually took some time to personalize the email, and the CS reps actually had a sense of humor. Either that, or the people who write the canned replies at Stars are much better writers than at FT. I'm looking forward to playing a little more at Stars starting next month, and I'll report my impressions of the differences between the two sites in future posts.
My goal for now is to still be in the top 17 in my rake race on FT AND maintain Stars' SuperNova status. I can pretty much get SuperNova in a month (maybe 5 weeks - 6 weeks tops), so playing that much over 12 months shouldn't be too difficult. Let's see how that goes. So far, all I've been doing is talking the talk. Hmm... for some reason, I'm getting a weird flashback to Mrs. Fly talking to me the other night. Anyways, I think this will be super-helpful on those days when I want to play during off-peak hours (when there aren't a lot of tables on FT). Also, if I want to start mastering donkament skills, Stars has much bigger tourneys than FT. Who knows? I may even start preferring Stars, which leaves open the possibility of going for SNE.
WHAT'S FOR DINNER?
Here's dinner from poker night. Mrs. Fly told me she took some photos, but you really can't see the food that well. Up in front is a new recipe - basically bread with some kind of cheese and olives on it. It was pretty good - considering there was no dead animal on it. Behind it to the left are the garlic roasted potatoes and to the right is her spicy cole slaw. In the front pot is her version of southern chicken 'n dumplin's (later post).
In the second pot (closeup below) is her beef pot roast. She braised the meat for like 6 hours until it was super tender. Tastes >>>>> Looks, which I guess isn't saying much, but it was awesome.
