I finally got sick of playing microlimit at PokerStars, so I deposited $100 back at UB. The whole “break from poker” thing didn’t last very long. Today, I played in four $10+1 sit and gos, and took first in three of them (didn’t cash in the fourth). Very quickly, I more than doubled my $100 deposit. Hopefully my luck will keep running that way. I also played in a few $5+.50 multitable tournaments, but didn’t do very well in them. I cashed in one for like $15, but didn’t do anything worth noting in the rest of them. I also tried a little bit of .25/.50 limit hold ’em, as that’s the highest I should play with $100 bankroll, but decided I just can’t play with players that bad. I know, in the long run, if I can deal with the suckouts, it’d be good, but I can’t. The players at .25/.50 at UB were worse than the .02/.04 and .05/.10 at PokerStars. It was painful watching them (and losing my money at the same time).
After I cashed out, my brother decided to do the same. He accidently left himself with $1 at UB. After a little bit of .01/.02 NL, he had $5.50, and bought into a multitable tourney. Several hours and a second place finish later, he had $690 in his account. All on the same day he cashed out the rest of his money. Some cashout curse.
