Most hands played in a single one-hour session

I played 1,327 hands in a single one-hour session just a moment ago.

What I did this time was play both zoom tables (4) and regular full ring tables (2NL).

I set the maximum number of regular tables to 18, for a total of 22 tables played. As I understand, the maximum number of tables that I can play on pokerstars is 24. Somehow, when I play more than 22 tables total (zoom plus regular), the poker client gives me an error message saying that I am playing too many tables.

I can email pokerstars support for a workaround, but this is more than enough for me--for now.

Variance is smiling at me these last few days. I think it had something to do with a big decision I made recently.

I was undecided whether I should get the camping tents and bike panniers. They cost about two hundred dollars, and I did not have the cash at that time. I did have a credit card. I really wanted these items from and did not want to settle for "made in china" tents that I can get from the local online auction.

Since I was excited about doing the bicycle tours, I decided to use the credit card, and see if synchronicity will support my decision.

Everything has been working out since.

Again, no expectations. Villain will get lucky some time soon... and I will lose a few stacks now and then. But that's part of doing business. Over time, I have grown to accept this fact.

The only difference this time is that I am now more open to synchronicity.

With the planned bike rides, I may not be able to play as many sessions as I used to. To meet my monthly quota of number of hands played, I may have to play more hands at each sessions. Weekends are going to be days off from playing, as I might have rides planned.

Later today, I have a 60 kilometer ride to downtown Auckland scheduled. It's going to be just me and the bike this time. I am a member of the local bike touring group, but they don't have a long ride scheduled for today.

Next week, they have one, about 80km, but I will decide if I am going to join that before the weekend. They have a three day bike tour coming up. I'd like to join that, but only if the tent gets here on time.
