Grrr, one of those annoying nights last night. Entered the 9pm $150 on Stars, Party, a double shootout for Atlantis and the $200 WSOP/WPT qualifier on Full Tilt. Was in a great spot on Stars in the $150 and on Full Tilt and blew it (even though I did cash on Stars).

On Stars I ran into one of the funniest hands ever. I raised with 44 from LP and a shorty moved in, I called getting over 2:1 on the call and he flips up 43. lol.

I also played some 20/40 and booked a small profit for the day, which was nice.

For the past week I've been datamining the 20/40 and 30/60 games on Party pretty much around the clock, 10 tables each. I wrote a script using AutoHotKey (thanks Matt M for that suggestion) that opens the tables every so often, collects all of the data and then i use Pokertracker to import it. Its nice having a lot of data against the players I play against - and I think its really helping me. I still maybe only have 40,000 hands of full ring limit play (about half 15/30 and half 20/40) and the results aren't good - I need to get way better at this before I turn pro because I do not want to deal with tournament variance all the time without some cash game backup.

Oh, and the other night I tried to get into Party hand #3billion. I missed by 90 - I was playing 10 tables and could hardly keep up. (Many of them were shorthanded). Somehow I won a few hundred while I was screwing around. And did anyone else notice that Stars and Party crossed #3 billion in the same night? How odd!?!?

I will not be playing all that much in the next few weeks. I am headed to Europe for a week starting Friday, am back for a few days and then away again at Thanksgiving for four days. And in early December I am headed to the Bellagio -
