I'm famous!?

Just like Anguila, I get hit by quarter end hard because of my role in financial reporting. I do have some good news on that end though... they are putting me in a "stretch" role where I basically take over my boss's job and after like a 6 month eval period, I would get promoted, if I don't f*ck it up. I guess if you're the glass half empty kinda guy, you could look at it as taking on a bigger role without the bigger pay for 6 months. But, I'm not that guy.

Well, anyways, where am I going with that? I was at work till about 8ish last night and then I got home, made myself a quick dinner, etc. Well, unfortunately, I didn't get to play poker till about 10:30 so no MATH for me. However, that doesn't mean I can't 3 table in order to earn my daily 200 point quota (which I have, in numerous occasions, admitted is very negative EV for me). So, there I am, opening up my cashier window, adding 200 to the current points total I have, writing it down, and going to work.

I wasn't totally in a poker mindset since I was hoping Romo would help me get the win over Chad, formerly known as KOD (or I guess still is?). Chad had T.O. and Nick Folk going as a "blocking bet" against Romo and was up by 7 pts going into last night's game... well, it didn't matter since Romo kinda did himself in. That's a pseudo bad beat in my book. Ok, not really but I really thought I had a chance.

So, anyways, this is my excuse that I'm setting up... because yesterday, I realized that maybe more people are actually watching me and reading my blog than I realized. I was sitting at this random 2-4NL table when out of the blue, DaSwam (nonblogger as far as I know) broke out with this gem:



So... that means that other people sitting at my 2-4NL tables might be reading this too? I know this was like normal for guys like Hoy who has a very nice blog, what with numerous screenshots and all, and great strategy topics but for me, this was the first random compliment I got so that was nice. Too bad I was playing pretty poorly... (replace "poorly" with "weak tight") Ended slightly up over 3 tables but most importantly, I got my 200pts and went to bed (AND missed the crazy finish of the Dallas - Buffalo game... I cut the tv off when the Cowboys missed the 2 pt conversion).

So anyways, DaSwam, if you read this, thanks for the shout out. If you do have a blog, leave it in my comment and I'll get you linked up.

I remember a good 2 or 3 years ago sitting at a table in a 180 person sng on stars when they had just started running the 180s, and looking up to see Drizz sitting at my table. It was the first time I had ever sat at an actual online poker table with one of these celebrities I had been reading from the internets, and I was pretty nervous about saying hi. Flash forward a year later or so, and I still remember getting my first random compliment at the online poker tables from another random guy at my table. It's crazy to think there are people out there who actually think it's cool to sit by us donkeys, isn't it?

lol. Funny topic though.

Would you prefer to have 1,000's of readers and lots of players know who you are? Or keep your readership small enough that you are still relatively unknown but have a great core of people to converse with?

Hmmmmmm.....

Don't worry, it was just me using my other username. You're still unknown.

Thanks for the shout out. The web is a better place when I just read blogs and not write them. I'll stick to just donking it up on-line and reading about everyone else's successes.
