A book, a database, and a healthier me

I'm still ahead... yay me.. I've used some of my winnings to purchase Theory of Poker, the book, should get it in the mail in a day or two... looking forward to reading that. Have been holding off, thinking that there prolly isn't anything in the book that I have not already learned from just playing the last 6 months.. then got bored, checked it out for prices on Amazon, and they had some previews of the inside of the book, table of contents, et al. and an excerpt.. which, I can't recall exactly what it was, but, I learned sumtin I did not already know, so, I ordered it....

Also got PokerTracker dl'd, registered and populated with my info from Party Poker. Got alot to learn about this software...looks cool, interesting and fun... discovered im in the black when it comes to tourneys, by about 150 bucks, minus the cost of the new book and the software.. heh...

Played very lil poker last few days.. still wasn't feeling 100% and was worried that I would not be able to make clear and rational decisions with allegra, robitussin, and flonase meandering thru my system.... I didn't keep track, but im guessing in the last couple days, I've played maybe 10 tourneys, and finished 2nd or 3rd 4 or 5 times...

Spending time on UB trying to work off a 100 bonus, using my initial 25 dollar deposit playing low limit, limit ring games.. which I will no longer do.... too many suck outs... 1 outters, 2 outters.. people playing crap to the river and just getting damn lucky.... nl lets me put these guys out on the flop, or turn....

might have to put another 25 bucks into UB, just so i can play more than one table and work the bonus off faster....

Royal Vegas poker still has there 100k free roll thing happening.. got an email pretty much telling me I'm in, cept they are breaking the tourney up into 5 parts.. my group is E, and plays on a work night, starting at 8 pm.. yuck.... i've not reached the level of play yet, where work is not important....
