o.m.f.g. how boring.

I’ve just read this blog from back to front. To save you the trouble, I’ll sum it up in one sentence. That’s right, 4 years in one sentence.

I won some money at cash tables but gave it all back playing mtt’s and now I’m going to whine about it online.

Sad to say it’s a pretty repetitive read.

To try to alleviate this, I’ve started to introduce some small lifestyle changes. Easily summed up as – less booze and take poker slightly more seriously than a 10-year-old. I started all this last Friday, for no other reason than that was the first of the month. Well, for no other reason than it seriously needs doing.

and whose idea was this ?

 So off I went on Friday night. It was kind of weird, playing on a weekend night with no beer. The session did not go spectacularly well. The best way I can describe it is like getting in your car, on the starting grid, and not being able to start the engine.

Still not sure this was a good idea.

Saturday night was a little better. I did manage to get off the grid, so to speak, but picking up a puncture every few orbits was less than ideal.

Sunday night proved to be a whole lot better and I was pretty happy to be cruising along mid pack.Then again, at +21 bb/100 .. perhaps I was firing on more cylinders than I imagined ….




Monday night and Tuesday night both went well, racking up 1300 and 1200 hands-played sessions. Firing on all cylinders ? at +12 bb/100 and +17 bb/100 respectively. Although I managed some sort of reasonable volume through Mon & Tues, it really should be more. For whatever reason, at about 10.30 ish on both nights, my brain/body decided I was very tired. Within ten minutes of the tiredness descending .. I was tucked up in bed (probably) literally snoring like a pig.

stop whining, that's a good start

All in all, not a bad start to the new month for this recreational fish. Just have to try to keep the momentum going and most importantly, stick to my small lifestyle changes.
