Holiday fun preceding exam time

Labour Day weekend. The calm before the storm.

I knew I would be resting up this weekend prior to beginning my Bar course. Time to catch up on chores, prepare a planned routine for the next few grueling weeks, and to wrap up one last task for my principal to hand over late tomorrow after the orientation session at the Law Society. And fit in some family time before my sister and her husband head off on their two-week vacation to Scotland later this week.

So ... in betweeen sorting through some of those aforementioned chores I fired up a 2/4 LHE table on FTP, and chatted with emptyman, who is on a real heater when it comes to HORSE tourneys to say the least.

I didn't equal his tourney winnings -- he was in the process of winning yet another HORSE MTT this afternoon, but it felt good to rack up a killer 153-hand session where I booked a big win [+150BBs], with a stellar 87% win at showdown.

I had forgotten just how soft low-limit LHE can be. As long as you can run just average, you can book a solid profit. I happened to run fairly hot after a slow start, and I got paid off in spades.

This was a fun note to end upon as I'll be playing very little poker during the next two months.
