    Back from AC, and not feeling well.

    I won small and lost big (by my low-limit standards). The small wins were nearly all playing no-ante $1-$3 and $1-$5 stud. The big losses were playing $2-$4 hold 'em (incredibly aggravating, as usual, watching the likes of unsuited k3 take down $100 pots) and trying $5-$10 Omaha 8 and $5-$10 stud.

    I did meet Gigi, who lives near New York City, at the $2-$4 Omaha table, and her extreme love of poker was inspiring. I didn't ask her age, but she has kids in their 40s, so I guess that makes her at least 60.

    When I lose more than $200, I think about quitting poker forever. Gigi says she doesn't mind losing (although she would never play $5-$10, as she thinks that's risking too much), and that as long as she's playing, she's happy. This was a stunning concept to me. If I lose more than $50, I'm miserable until I win again.

    Atlantic City update: staying here through Presidents Day weekend, and have no computer. Updates to resume next week.

    I'm off to Atlantic City for the weekend, so no updates through the weekend.

    Inspired by Mean Gene, I'm trying $25 buy-in pot-limit hold 'em on Party. I just chickened out and folded the hammer to a $3 preflop raise.

    9.15 p.m. I'm watching the "preview" episode of the new World Poker Tour season, and it's tremendously diverting. I hadn't seen Phil "The Unabomber" Laak in action before. Or that smug fuck, Paul Phillips, either.

    Iggy, my man, you must get cable (and Tivo, to make the cable maximally cost-effective). This is priceless entertainment.

    There can never be too many poker blogs. Although there are enough lately that they're hard to keep track of. Which is why I want this one to keep tabs on the others.

    I play online and in Atlantic City.

    I live with my husband in Yorkville, the far Upper East Side of Manhattan. (I'm looking for a home game.)

    I used to be a restaurant critic and magazine editor (talk about suited trash).

    The updates start tomorrow; I've got my hands full with getting the links up today.
