Back to $100

A week ago today the bankroll stood at $134.66, but it's been a bad week. More like a bad weekend actually. I played a soccer game way to heavily on Sunday putting $20 on it only because I bet the other side of it with a guy at work and I wasn't liking the play so I bet both sides to cancel it.

I bet on Chivas with Alex from work for $20 and then put another $20 on America on BookMaker. Chivas won so I lost the $20 on BookMaker, but I did get paid by Alex today, so it kind of works out as me just withdrawing $20 from the BookMaker account. Still wish I hadn't done it though because I was on a roll the last couple of weeks.

Anyway these are all the plays from this past week that I hadn't posted and basically outlines how I got back to $100.

10/22- Tampa Bay -0.5 (-$5.00)

10/23- Tampa Bay -1.5 (+$5.83)

10/25- Tampa Bay -1.5 (-$5.00)

10/26- America -0.5 (-$20.49)

10/27- Philadelphia -1.5 (+$0.00) no action

10/27- Indianapolis +4 (-$10.00)


Going with Lakers Celtics and Bulls tonight. Also going to follow Paper Chaser on his Hockey play since he's been on a roll with those. I'd be happy with a 2-2 day.

Bulls -6.5

Celtics -6

Lakers -7.5

Penguins -0.5

Day Profit: +$0.77

Day Record: 2-2

Total Record: 142-153-7

Bankroll: $100.77

Total Profit: -$99.23


I got invited to a home game for tomorrow night but I'm not sure it's still on. So far only 4 people have confirmed so it's not looking to good. Hopefully more people decide to come because I really feel like playing. Haven't played live in a while.

I actually went to this same home game back in February and was the big winner that day. That time we were playing .50c/$1 but tomorrow it's suppose to be $1/$2 NL Hold Em' and Pot Limit Omaha. I don't mind playing Omaha. I really suck at it but I won my biggest pot of the night in Omaha last time, haha.

But like I said, I'm still waiting to hear back from the host to see if the game's still on. If not, I might hit up the Casino up in Rolling Meadows although that's also up in the air since it's like an hour bus ride.
