I had a horrible monkey tilt session in poker yesterday. On the weekdays, I usually play in the nights mainly on Full-Tilt , and yesterday I proceeded to drop ~5kish+ in less than 90 mins to an absolute donkey in Heads-up (one-on-one, for the poker uninitiated) cash at the $5/$10 No-Limit level.
Needless to say I am mega pissed. I am still up about 10kish for the month on the back of very little paying time, but the bottomline is I AM PISSED and ON SUPER MONKEY TILT.
Anyway, I'll be playing (well atleast planning to play) three live tourneys this week (live tourneys are by definition 1000-X-easier than online ones, as live players are god-awful horrid BAD, and have no idea of even the extreme basics of tournament poker strategy):
(1) Today: a rebuy tourney, rebuys are mega fun and complete donkfests.
(2) Saturday: $250 buy-in tourney, 1st place is about 4-5kish, I should win this if for once my AA>J8o
(3) Sunday: $100 buy-in tourney, 1st place is about 2-3kish, I have won this thing about 4-5 times this year and depending on my tilt-factor I should win this one too.
But for today its BLAAAAAAAAAAH.
F Poker. Bring on the MBA apps.
In other OMG TILT news: the bullshit rally in stocks continue, for the second week now. Stupid Wachovia Bank (WB) has rallied from a low of 8s to the 18 in less than a week (brace yourself for this) on the back of a mere "5 billion USD loss". The whole fucking nine-yards of those shitty banks and the fin sector (ETF XLF), with the help of those dastardly stupid Feds , have rallied upwards of 35% in one week (apart from GoldmanS which is dropping faster than a hedge fund on cocaine), while 5 of them who've reported earnings this Quarter have declared collective losses to the tune of "just 12 billion USD+". Not to mention even the stupid retailers are rallying.
It is official : Reason has no place in today's market anymore. I still like shorting here, even though we seem to be in a weird bull market anchored by bullshit sectors. I like SKF, FXP here.
