- I had seen this line used a million times on poker forums but never knew what it was from. I finally saw the episode of the wire that used this line. I had never realize dhow powerful of a statement this was as it was near the end of season 1. As I said before, itâ€™s a great show and Iâ€™m really enjoying it so far. The plots are very complex and itâ€™s tough to predict what is going to happen from scene to scene. They definitely stay away from story book endings.
- Iâ€™m one pound away from reaching my weight loss goal. Now the plan is to keep it off. It shouldnâ€™t be that hard as baseball season starts up in about a month. While itâ€™s not like baseball season is physically demanding; between throwing BP, hitting fungos, and just instructing Iâ€™ll at least be forced to be active day in and day out. Also, I plan on doing cardio at least 3 days a week.
- Poker wise Iâ€™ve decided just to 2 table for the next 2 weeks. While itâ€™s great getting in more hands by 4 tabling, it just affects my focus too much. I had 4 tabled for the better part of 6 weeks and about the last week or so Iâ€™ve noticed my tilt problems creeping back in. Iâ€™ve put a ton of time into fixing those so I immediately tried to figure out what had changed.
I think Iâ€™ve diagnosed the problem and the last couple days had been much better. While Iâ€™m not a big believer in non-SD winnings. I was looking at my graph and it had gotten to the point where it was a deterrent and a pretty big leak. Unfortunately when I 4 table I just enter auto pilot mode and play extremely fit or fold. Iâ€™ve adjusted my prop bet for this month to hours and Iâ€™m going to be making another hours prop bet next month.
â€œI attempt an arduous task; but there is no worth in that which is not a difficult achievement.â€
