The road to Germany - Part 1

It seems that I changed my undertitle on twoplustwo to "bloggin'" about the week that I stopped updating this blog. The reason for that has been quite clear: "Math Attacks". When I usually had some extra time for poker, I either just played a session or I blogged a bit. However, this video project has had me in a sort of stronghold grip. I'm sure when it is over I will make a post thinking back on a lot of stuff, only at the halfway point right now, though. It should be said, that while manageable, each episode is requiring ~8 hours of work with preparation, recording and homework. But I'm getting so much more our of it. The old adage that if you really want to learn a subject, you should teach it, still holds and I feel like I'm such a better poker player after summarizing, simplifying and explaining the concepts in the book.

But something else happened in the last few months, too. Yep that's right, I have moved to Germany. It was planned. It was a mix of reasons to do it, none of it right on their own, but the sum of it just seemed right. I lived in the US for 9 years, great years, but I think it's enough. I love the country, the people, but I somehow feel like I can "give back" to Germany, too, you know.

Anyway, now that I have settled in, I'll try to relate in a few blog posts what has happened in the last few months of my life. I believe I left you off just before I was embarking on my trip to Europe before coming back to the US the last time (yeah, extending a VISA for 3 months, ugh).

Some things that happened in that Europe trip relating to poker:

- I lost over 1400$, once playing 5/T LO8 and once chasing a fish all the way up to 10/20 at FTP. It was strange, because the LHE loss I shrugged it off as nothing, I knew I was playing well, everything was fine, I felt extremely confident. But the LO8 loss, there was that lingering thought, that maybe I was doing something wrong. Overvaluing concepts, maybe. My only consolation was that I played for quite a long time with Bart Hanson and he was losing a lot, too. Maybe it was really just runbad. Still, maybe I am too loose opening with A46K one nut suit from the hijack ;-).

- I met fnupple. What a cool dude. We talked about a lot of different stuff, math, social conscience, poker players, etc.

- I discovered I couldn't play online poker during my stay in France (kind of a premonition feeling haha). Pokerstars encouraged me to sign up for pokerstars.fr, but I felt I wasn't that desperate. Besides, the rake is horrendous there and I just watched lots of TV and actually enjoyed Paris with good food and some sightseeing (I had been there before and done all the big things).

- My first video came out during my stay in Paris. Was exciting to check on the thread during the talks of the conference I was at, hehe. It got good feedback, but I knew already then that it would die down soon. Not because the people didn't care, but for me it takes such a long time to finish series, so for this one that actually is difficult, it would be much harder for people to go through with it. I don't mind, there are always people starting and I feel like people will get a lot of this series for a long time, doesn't matter when they start it.

After I got back from Europe, not much happened. I mean, my mom came by and we had a wonderful mother-daughter weekend in Las Vegas. It was filled with Red Canyon, Hoover Dam, clothes-shopping, buffet. To top it off, we saw Celine Dion, which was absolutely great. Oh, and I won 230$ at 20/40 after being down over 2 racks :D . Again, there was no bonafide fish in the game, but all players had some sort of leak (with one exception from the local pro, who I knew from other times).

I also went on "Hey Ball", under very good feedback. Funny enough, not much on the DC pages or DC PMs, but most of it on twoplustwo. It made my heart all warm to hear such good comments, remember this is 2p2 after all ;-). Ah, that site will always hold a dear place in my heart.

But otherwise, I was actually getting some work done. All was fine and chugging along, I was even building up some students, until... Black Friday. I'll talk about that and my last weeks in the US next post.

Yep, but spending them at the lake, like I did yesterday makes them bearable :)
