It was a legitimate request for a stake -  however it was John and we all love him but he has trouble finding a deck (disregard his form in APAT, disregard his obvious skills) the important part of this is you must understand he is Irish

I am chastened by the lack of success last night. I"ve been crushing these games lately, so I wasn"t expecting that. I"d like to roll our $9 forward and do a few more if everyone is okay with that.

As I ran good myself last night I can afford this downswing so yes, roll it over.

*sigh*

See APAT Members have poor bankroll management.

It is what puts the A in APAT this thread just backs that up

Actually, Rodders, I exercised careful bankroll management today by moving down in stakes. There were a couple of tasty-looking $5.50 Stud and Triple Stud games earlier but, with our reduced balance, I thought it was too risky to put that much on one game, so I am sticking to $2 games for now. If we crash here, I may have to move down further til I find the right level.

I have only played two games today so far.

$2.20 8-game - 6 paid.  19/55.   Cash $0
$2.20 Badugi  - 4 paid.    4/23.   Cash $4.60

So that"s bumped our balance up to $9.20.

Prob do a few later.

Can I be in please. I know it is poor bankroll management but this thread looks fun and I could even bink something. Can I buy some?

I"m willing to fire another bullet at this but after that we might have to consider a make-up deal.

You"re in. Please send whatever you can - every little helps.

The situation improved a bit on Sunday, cashing 4/37 in a Triple for $7.40, which brought us back a little. Despite the cash, this one was actually a bit of a disaster. With a dozen left, I was a distant CL with 33k, second and third were on 11k and the rest were nowhere - and I still contrived somehow to come 4th. Still CL with four left, but misfired a few times. Aggression got it and aggression lost it. $27 for 1st would have put us in a good position.

So, up to $11, but blanked in two $2, so we"ve got $6.60 in our account now.

PS - I don"t know where you got the idea that this is fun. There is no fun involved. There is failure, frustration and humiliation. Or perhaps that is your idea of fun.

Darn it, I went off to Glastonbury and forgot I had invested here.

How much do you owe me?
