      hey, unfortunately I got sick for the second time in 2 months, last month I was not able to play for 3 weeks -.-

      tried to play even while sick, not a good way to do things, although some shitrun included, C-game sometimes:



      updates starting from tomorrow on, as I play a bit, looks like no platinumstar this month :(

      micromillions started today, lot of fish at the tables
      downloaded this GrindStone software DoC.LemOn mentioned, will start using it tomorrow.

      On a side note: After watching latest Schnitzelfish video, I decided to buy a notebook, or rather appointments book (dunno the correct name for that in english), where I will track my progress for next year's personal supernova challenge - hopefully it will help me to stop procrastinate, along with the GrindStone software :D



      a quick ride inbetween sessions in Euro Truck Simulator 2 is so relaxing, especially when you can turn on a radio ingame :P

      Oh i played Euro truck simulator too. With my Momo Logitech wheel. It was really like driving a formula 1 car but much slower :f_cool: . With G25 wheel it has to be much more fun.

      I guess you use wheel also don't you?

      And of course i wish you even more green numbers :f_cool:

      Actually, I don't play micromillions at all, I hate tournaments :f_biggrin:

      I do have Momo as well :D but I don't have much space at the table, so I don't use it much now, used to play F1 2012 with it. Now I play Euro Truck Sim with a keyboard, like a boss :D

      hey what was your rationale with the QQ?

      I think check call may be best as he can hero fold a lot of pocket pairs and can shove his draws.

      guy was a huge calling station, he won't fold any pair here. I wasn't rly considering c/c ingame, I might have used a smaller turn bet though, where he would call anything on the river with very small bet left.

      this thread was lacking updates, so I decided to exclude "marathon" from the title, as I did not update 3 times a week.

      anyway, next month I aim to play 150 hours and reach platinumstar, as was intented previously this month. Next year going for supernova.

      will try to update every other day with some interesting hands.

      also, if a moderator could move this thread to "your poker blogs", please :)
