Waiting ...

Found a superb $4/8 table on Bodog in my one hour session. Unfortunately the table was full, so I added myself to the waiting list, thinking a spot would open up pretty soon as there were three huge fish on the table, and surely one would go broke soon, or with any luck one of the better players would just leave.

Half an hour later, I'm still at #1 on the waiting list. No one had left. Irritating given I don't have that much time to play. Of course in the mean time i'm playing some fishy tables on GNUF to clear my final $50 sign up bonus there. A few minutes later and one of the fish on Bodog busted out so I got my chance. Didnt have ideal position being on the left of one of the tighter players but the table still looked pretty good to me.

I do use the wait lists all the time to make sure I get onto the fishiest (most profitable) tables , but it is unusual to wait for that long when you're the first in the list.

A few hands after sitting down, the second fish left. Now i'm not all that happy. Played a couple orbits and was quickly down 10BBs when none of my hands hit a flop. Then the third fish left the table, so there was no point staying, so I also quit it after about a total of 15 hands.

Gnuf treated me a little better, however, and I found one juicy $3/6 table which I knew would rack up my last few points for my bonus in no time. Unfortunately again, the fish left after about 15 hands, however I was up by 10BBs in that time. Also made a little on the $1/2 and $2/4 tables there even with some very nasty suck outs going against me as a couple fish almost played any two cards.

All in all pretty much even from play, but gained $50 from clearing the bonus. Would have also made a few $ in rakeback, so not a total waste of time.

Also made my first withdrawal from William Hill of around $700. Not too bad considering my initial deposit there was $200 a few months ago, and i've still left myself enough to play on there to get their monthly $50 bonus.

Current Bankroll: $10,750 (+360 Aug)

Good god I don't know how you keep track of it all . Interesting what you had to say about the flush draw . I shall bear that in mind and see if I can apply it if I find myself in such a spot. Adam
