Partying, TSO, and Airsoft wars

So over the last week poker has been non existent (even though I feel the itch to play every day), mostly because of all of the fun activities I have planned. It's hard not to get lazy when in 2 months of playing poker I made more money then I did in a year and a half working part time as a black jack dealer. Last week was spent in a haze of heavy partying in PA, while visiting a good friend of mine. I got to see kid cudi and snoop dogg in concert there but really cant remember to much of it. I just remember it being a damn good time. So I got back home and what do I do play a few hours each day then just go ehh I'll play more tomorrow. Plus today I'm busy. I'm going to take a few friends to see the Trans-Siberian orchestra concert tonight, one of my absolute favorite music groups. Then Friday will be spent airsofting with some friends followed by a bonfire. Long story short I've fallen way behind on my goal not due to a downswing, but because I need to make at least $1,000 a day just to stay on pace. So hopefully Saturday I'll get back into the groove and starting looking towards SCOOP. Anyways check these bad boys out just ordered them the other day. Thank you poker for allowing me to drop $2,000 on something completely ridiculous like ...

Road Trippin

I'm going out to Phili for a few days to visit a good friend and party. I just love long drives (about 14hrs) and I don't really know why. It'll be nice to get a change of scenery, it gets boring doing the same day to day. That's one of the reasons I play poker, the freedom it gives me to just go wherever you want, whenever you want, and do whatever you want.

So these are the numbers on my goal so far (and the number of games is a complete coincidence) but after 35 days I'm sitting at $28,015 so about 7k behind. I still have plenty of work to do but I'm pretty satisfied about my game.

Still shaking

Today my friends came over to hangout while I sit on my ass all day and try and make some money. It really helps the day go by. Then to win the $109 turbo for $12,618 with a several fans cheering me on was the best ever. So much adrenaline flowing with all of the excitement, that has been lasting for the last few hours till now. For an update about my 100 days 100k goal, I'm at $23,750ish over 29 days. So I'm only 5k off track, still doable. I just shall keep putting in the time.

Break even stretch

Lately I have not been running to great. The beats have been brutal and 1000 games later and I still have not made a profit. I guess I should be happy I haven't lost to much. But really I look at is I have fallen far behind my goal. In result of several poor sessions I have been somewhat discourage, contemplating my shove, and just have been playing less. Tomorrow I'm going to my first Brewers game of the season I'm hoping it's the recharge I need so come Wed. I'm ready to start crushing it, and until then GO BREW CREW!

I'm the biggest fish ever!

On avg. I spend 12-14 hrs playing on pokerstars for full work days and 4-5 hours on relaxing days the last few months. And great surprise today I just figured out how to change the color of my notes. I always knew that was possible but never knew how to do it. And today it just hit me, OHHH!!!! thats how you do it. I mean come on I say I do this for a living and can't even figure out a simple feature on pokerstars. I"m such a fish...

Sigh

April's foolishness was a great way to start April even though it never worked out. I won a $1 rebuy for just over 1k, fun stuff. But as I kept playing I kept making it deep only to wind up getting 4 outered in the nightly 100k. aq vs 74 on a board on q53. currently 13th outta 69 and he had just about as many chips as me. I bet he calls and hits a miracle turn of a 6. We get it in and ... yeah. As I get knocked out of that tourney as well as many other deep runs that came up short today, I went into a rage I have never experinced from poker before. I have in hockey, soccer, football, and paintball but never poker. I just started throwing everything on my desk kicking my chair, punched a wall, almost destroyed everything. Thank god my friends were over to calm me down and remind me I am a good poker player. I WILL GET THE 10k+ score again ( i haven't had a plus 10k score since july 2009 and that's when i sucked at poker) even though I thought I was a champ. So I am reminded that this April I will crush 180 mans and give my shot for some big scores with some mtt's which I feel very confident in my game (couldn't say that 2 weeks ago). So what do you do when you have a bad day. Cope! (I cope by drinking most of the time) not something I'm proud of but hey comes with the territory. So whatever works for you. Gl at the tables, stay positive, and put those hours in!
