Postcard From the Road

Quick update - at 75 cents a minute it has to be quick.  Day 1, the table is exactly the way i thought it was, I played perfect cruise poker, which admittedly is not difficult against bad players who are also half drunk.  Day 1 I only played for about 2 hours, started with $100, ended with $300. Yay me! Just play ABC poker, don't get cute, hit your strong hands hard, fold down your crap (though if you want to let yourself be caught bluffing early that REALLY helps if you're willing to play tight thereafter) and you'll win. At this rate I should be able to pay for my next cruise before I leave this one, and Tootsie has indicated that if I win that amount of moola she'd be down with another trip. Wheee!

The seas are calm and picturesque as hell, my mother is trying her best not to force herself down our throats (results are mixed) but all in all not too awfully bad.

Anyway, I'll be home Friday or so.  Stay cool till then.  I think you're all just grand.


  1. Glad you're having fun and winning too. Continued good luck.

    I don't think I've told you yet but I really like the new look of your blog.

  2. Yowsa! Yes -- you have seen how to play on cruises. Or, you can do like I did -- realize that the night is almost over and donk chase a flush -- and hit it!

    Can't wait for this particular trip report!

  3. Glad you are enjoying your trip!

  4. 75 cents A MINUTE????

    Stay off the internet for a few days and have fun! And be nice to both of your women!

  5. Glad you are having fun!! Win, win, win, win!
