I decided to play a couple of SNG's on Absolute last night... since it has been over a month since I have played any poker at all... and also, got a big live tourney tomorrow... so, had to make sure I could still recognize the cards... took a 1st and a 3rd.... the competition was, lets say, lacking.... not sure if I am still bettre than average, or just got two tables with some really poor players...
ah well... we shall see tomorrow..
