bought $1000 to the casino to play $1/$2 no limit hold'em. my buy-in + reloads is $200.
I'm usually a breakeven player.

I usually play craps (ie: my username) but they had a promo today.
but even at breakeven, I come out ahead in comps.

unfortunately, today variance hates me.
lost $800 due to a combination of 2nd best hand, my draws didn't get there, and their draws did.

I wasn't overly depressed about the $800 because:
1) I've lost triple that in a day playing craps <SIGH>
2) gambling is fun for me. it's $ I can afford to lose.

but I was super-po'd at myself at the last hand I played.
I should have folded instead of calling.
I flopped the Ace high flush. what else could he check/call me to the river in a 3 way pot except a set. (and the river paired the board.)

I was beating myself more over my call for my last $100 than the $800 I lost. (pot was 200.)

if you're not gambling for living, it's just entertainment...
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)
