I want to echo everybody's reccomendations. If you haven't been reading CC's Quest of a Closet Poker Player lately, you have been missing some really good stuff on poker and relationships. I know it has garnered some nice conversatons with Mrs Wonka... .much needed conversations, by the way.
While I love watching the World Poker Tour, World Series of Poker and even the Poker Superstars Invintationals... ok all poker.... I have really, really enjoyed High Stakes Poker. That brings poker viewing to a completely different and elevated level. If anyone questioned what made some of the top pros great... just check out their hand selection. Especially in live play, post flop play is where you make your money and people like Sam Farha, Barry Greenstein and Freddy Deeb continually amaze me. It's truly inconceivable to somebody like me.
We all know that in poker that you are going to have good swings and bad swings. I just need to keep reminding myself to keep on keeping on. The last two days have been better as I have made $118 and $124 in the last two days. I'm still having the gut wrenching suckouts. I'm starting to really hate flopping two pair or straights... We'll see how it goes.
I think playing a few Steps on Party has also helped. Switching things around can only help.. although, I'm not having any better luck in those... I'm stuck on Step one now for 12 tournies in a row. I just can't get over the hump. I have 3 2nds and 3 4ths... Next time, I believe I will just start at Level 2 or 3. That seems to make more sense. One I run out of step tokens, that is probably what I will do.
Not much else to say.. Work is keeping me busy... which is a good thing.
