I Did It!

This morning was quite a productive one on the poker front. Not only did I manage to clear my bonus, I even managed to more than triple up my $10 buy in for today so that when I finally logged out, I had an additional $25 to add to my account, and the $25 bonus on top of that brought me to my desired goal of $150. Almost. My actual balance was $149.52, less than 1 BB of my usual .50/1.00 ring games. I decided that if I tried to log on then and there I would be playing on tilt, and would lose $5 trying to win .50. I decided to take a nap instead. It was a good idea as I logged in when I woke up an won a quick $3 to take my balance officially over $150.

Not only did I clear my bonus, AND meet my monetary goals, but I also managed to earn enough points to get myself a Party Poker Baseball Cap.

I ran into a snag tonight though when I tried to set up a Neteller account but couldn't when I found out that Neteller doesn't operate accounts for Maryland residents. Thankfully I was able to open up an account with Firepay which looks as though it should do the job nicely. It's still going to take a few days to set up, but with a small bit of luck, I might be able to use it to transfer my bankroll to Absolute Poker in time for Absolute's 100% First Time Deposit Bonus and PokerSource Online's Double Chip Set Offer.

I'm sure everyone will be seeing more and more of them as the weeks go by, but I just signed up for Poker Stars Blogger Freeroll tonight, they finally made one for a weekend (October 23rd, 2005 – 4:00pm EST / 1:00pm PST) so I'll be able to play in one for a change. I'm very excited about it.
And finally check out Dr. Pauly's Tao of Poker, I made his Top 15 Referral List! Go me! I so rule. Good luck at the tables this weekend everyone.
