I found some old content and thought, “why not!” I’m going to post this old content just to have it. So over the next few weeks or possibly days, I will post this stuff by making it live and linking to it here on this post. I am hoping I can develop a habit of posting on a regular basis.
Well, This one is first up because it is called “first post”. While this by far was not my first post it was at this particular time. I was getting a “new” poker path and wanted to chronicle my journey not so focused on poker as much as my general feelings and goals etc. I should have explained that I had at this time started a couple of challenges the for the new year of 2011. First was a challenge of x dollars to x dollars bankroll growth challenge. I think it was $100 to $10,000. Another challenge I had set to do was x hands which I have written in my actual (physical) notebook and when I find that I can confirm but I am sure it was 1 million hands.
In this post, I talk a little about politics and the things I see that are bothering me and still bother me today. I would say I’m less consumed by watching these things as they happen these days; more or less despondent over the whole matter.
For those of you that don’t know;
I am playing online poker as opposed to live poker (and working a regular 9-5), I am also selling online all of the things I have acquired for that very purpose, and I am learning a few new things along the way.
Poker what a great game it beats you down to pick you up just a little each time, honestly I am enjoying the control over my schedule that poker affords me but for some reason I am cannot do as well online as I can live. I could speculate all day long about why this is but I do know that often get frustrated about the low (micro) steaks I am currently playing, but that is my chose and I either need to deal with it or get a job so I can move up faster. Playing 6max superturbo STTs is not that bad I can play a lot of tourneys within a short amount of time, about 7 minutes each, with 4 tabling it takes me about 1 hr per ever 25 tourneys. I think I can reasonably expect to make 10% ROI from each which means about $2.50/hr – I need to play more. The only problem I am having is something I typically suffer with; lack of focus, lack of ……. (well you know that thing that makes most people successful). I beg you not to take me down as negative but it’s hard to motivate one’s self to play when their graph looks like the following;
I’ve been writing journals on and off my whole life. I’ve been doing nearly the same online with my blog and this time things are coming along nicely as I’m finding old posts and working on adding new ones.
I hope you find something helpful and please feel free to leave me a comment as I love reading them!
