Taking a Break

Well I haven't posted in awhile mainly because I have been taking a break from poker. Mainly because I didn't feel like playing. I think if it is feeling too much like work it is time to take a break. So I hit up the black jack tables one or two nights did some reading and just tried to relax and get my mind off poker.

So I got back playing the other night and proceeded to drop about 1500 at empire. I was playing heads up and this guy just killed me. I couldn't catch a hand and this guy was a decent player and just murdered me. I wonder if he was just that much better than me or if it was just bad cards. Who knows? All I know is that I lost alot of money that I really didn't need to lose or could afford to lose. Oh well is just chips right?

Anyway other than that things have gone pretty well. I'm making a steady profit at the tables at the site that I prop at. Although, I did get into it with a fellow prop the other day. Here is the hand that kind of set me off. I have KQ and I think I raised preflop. Flop is K Q 8 rainbow. Nice. I check raise the flop and get two callers. Bet the turn and both players call (the turn was 7d). No straights no flushes I'm good right. River is the 4d so still no flush possiblities and only one straight out there and I hardly think someone would draw to runner runner straight. I bet the river and get raised. I call probably should have raised but the guy who raised me (who is also a prop) has drawn out on me so many times. Seriously it is unreal this guy. He owns me with his bad cards and always seems to beat me with inferior hands. He is the only prop that I really remember because he has beat me so many times with inferior hands. Anyway, he raises the river and I call, he shows 44. Pocket fours are you kidding? I don't know how you call the flop when it is checkraised and then call the turn when there are 4 overcards. Oh well like I said this guy seems to have my number. So this happens right and, its not the first time this night that this guy has beat me with hands like that. So i type in the chat....my grandma draws to 2 outs.... no big deall right I've said much worse before and I'm steaming a little after that horrible sux out.

So I get a message from the shift manager asking me if I have a problem (shift manager oversees the prop play at various sites). I say no I don't have a problem I'm trying to make some money. So what happened was that another prop, not even the one I was in the hand with (as I found out later) reported me for berating players. He said I made two table break up because of my comments. Give me a break!

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
