Another JourNY

Yes I meant to spell it that way. Why? Because that is the way the blogger NYSPOKER spells it in the title of this blog - JourNY into Poker. He has been blogging about as long as I have. I think Iggy (all hail the blogfather!) pimped him the same time he pimped me.

Anyway NYS(?) has been playing a whole lot more than I have and has been graphically tracking his bankroll on his blog. Usually nice short posts with lots of pokery goodness. So if you want more poker content than you get here (hopefully that will change soon) go on then JourNY.

Patience, Jacka$$, Patience

As you can tell I have not played on Party in a while. I ran through my first buy-in and have not gotten around to reloading. The money is sitting in Neteller, but I have not pulled the trigger yet. My biggest problem right now seems to be patience. I know what cards to start with. I know what cards to fold. I know how to get a read on my opponents. I am usually good at reading the board, although sometimes straights hide from me.

I know all that, and I get tired of fold, fold, fold. Of the 500+ hand I have on Poker Tracker, the highest pocket pair I have received is JJ once. I have also received Big Slick once. I want to get in on the action, but I have not been dealt very good cards. 67 suited starts to look good. Hell even 83 offsuit starts to look good.

I know what I need to do. And the next session I play, I will work on it. And if any of you have any tips for practicing patience at the on-line table, I would appreciate it.
