The elephant is an amazing piece of tracking software. Records every hand played, analyzes you and your opponents, charts and graphs your win/loss. Its PokerTracker for the poor and I really like it. Here's my current graph for March. I like the way its moving up. ;) Still got aways to go to get to Silver level, but the forum is just great as far as having learning materials and plenty of professional coaching and peer advise. I've forwarded the link to this site to a few people but I'm not sure if they have looked into it yet or not. Time will tell. If you're reading this and want the link, let me know with a comment and I'll send it your way.
Won this week's league game. Man, I couldn't lose really. The cards I was getting were making me look a lot better than I am, but there was a couple of times it got close to bust out city...but I managed to hang on and win it in the end. Tonight I have a charity game at Bill's...won it a couple of years ago, hopefully I can repeat.
Mom sent an email out saying Dad finally got in to see the specialist. Bad news though, he has more than a few blockages, and other than staying on medication, there's not a lot he can do for him. Right now, its more or less a time thing. Knowing Dad, he would much rather not wait. Mom is the reason he's hanging on, that's a fact.
Anyway, just getting ready to get groceries now that the kid is home. She spent the March Break at her godmother's and only got back home now. Guess we have to feed her again, so its out to the store again.
