A Quandry

As is known, BBTwo kicks off on Sunday with Don's Big Game. I am faced with a dilemma. I'm out tonight, I'm busy tomorrow building computers and installing software, and on Sunday I have a live tournament at 3pm that could conceivably go until 7 or 8. I don't yet have a $75 token, and it seems unlikely that I'll be able to play for one before Sunday rolls around. I've already invested $26-and-change into token attempts, with one bubble to the desired token.

So, what's a guy to do? I imagine that by the time I get home tonight, I'll either be drunk or exhausted or both, which does not bode well for playing ability. I might be able to squeeze in a game tomorrow night, or Sunday morning (like I'll be awake). I'm actually pretty happy that I haven't reloaded at Tilt in months, but buying in directly would drop my small roll there to dangerously low. I can easily reload, but I'd rather try and actually make this poker habit profitable.

Oh, who am I kidding? If I don't token in, I'll be buying in. I'll just have to win the thing, build up the roll to a level that can pay for the whole BBT, and get that TOC spot out of the way quickly. Maybe combine it with a juicy live score and make it a truly profitable day.

Too bad I have to miss The Big Game. Everyone's strategy is to win it and secure an early spot in the tournament of champions. It should be interesting ...

katitude said... playing the Long Grind on Sunday?

And that's why the TOC is so good. Nobody's just going to fold to the points.

That's my plan Kat. Long Grind followed by Big Game. Back-to-back wins! :)

I hear you Astin. $75 cuts into my $122 transferred roll and I dont have time to attempt any satellites.

I might just rail this one and study the competition :)

Play well at your live tourney and report back profitable!!

Oh and Ive added new lists of food sites to my blog (more to come)
