I've had a run of events that are helping me get myself together a little bit at a time. Small gains, but gains just the same. The first was my run in the SnG's last night. I went on a small run and took a couple of 1st's and a 2nd. out of the 4 I entered. Cashing in 3 out of 4, is a decent show in my books. I bubbled the fourth when I lost my mind temporarily and thought that trip K's was a monster. I didn't read the board very good at all, and could not see the straight staring me in the face after the river card was dealt. My bad, no one else's fault.
Then I mookie'd. In my four attempts now, I have managed to take 10 steps at a time and that makes me feel pretty good. My finishes in the four try's have been, (in order) 49th, 39th, 29th and now 19th last night. I think there might be a 9th place spot with my name on it next week. I also had some strong criticism sent my way by a player I took out. I can handle that, people get mad and it can be an ugly part of the game. (I am sometimes, just as guilty of this as the next player) Some good did come from it though. I didn't have to defend myself! Some players that I truly respect for their on-line game, came to my rescue. That was a very pleasant surprise.
I also had some praise shot my way for being in the top 10 for most of the night. I loved seeing the list of chip leader's at break as mookie live-blogged the game.
Little gains, but gains just the same.
Finally, this morning. After heading my advice and taking a couple of weeks to re-group after being let go by "The Company." Pebbles went out for an interview this morning, and was hired on the spot. WooooooHoooooooo !
Peb's is now once again, gainfully employed and all is right in the world. As a Territory Manager for a local company, she picked up the US SouthEast. Florida, The Carolina's and so on. Darn huh? Beaches, Nascar, Golf and G-frickin'-Vegas. I don't know how, but I think she'll manage to get by just fine.
My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
