Have I finally hit the wall?
For whatever reason, playing online poker just seems to be getting less and less fun. 2006 was a tremendously fun year. I was playing at so many sites that I can't even remember, and having fun in the year-long tournament marathons sponsored by the Online Poker Tour (OPT). Then The K-9 Poker Tour began, and I still had Cardschat tournaments, Shark Poker Tour tournaments, and CheckRayz tournaments. I got involved with blogger tournaments, and I swear, I must have been playing twelve hours a day. I can't believe that my wife put up with it.
Howver, 2007 brought many changes. The Neteller fiasco almost ruined everything. Nice try, US government buttholes. OPT ditched its excellent tournament competition to focus on Rounders Radio. CheckRayz and the Shark Poker Tour both seem to have died. K-9 is still okay although infighting seems to have brought things down a notch. CardsChat is going strong and has been a bright spot. I overdosed on blogger tournaments and am thinking that I will play in less of those.
I wonder if my lack of play in b&m rooms these past several months has added to my disenchantment. I haven't been to Las Vegas in seven months, and have only played a handful of "live" tournaments. I hope that my trip to Las Vegas (only five days to go!) will help clarify things for me.
