So this is my very first blog.Â Anywhere.Â Ever.
It may also turn out to be my last.Â I'm not sure I actually have all that much to be blogging about on a regular basis but we'll see how it goes I guess.Â If there are any future blogs I'm hoping that it won't just be a bunch of bad beats and sob stories - my girlfriend is perfectly adept at listening to them and not caring in slightest so there's no real need to inflict it on anyone else.
As far as poker goes, I'm currently playing micro stakes on Full Tilt.Â I moved back down to 10NL today after about 21k painful, breakeven hands at 25NL.Â Hopefully it won't be for long.
I generally try and set some goals at the end of each month for the coming month.Â Some poker, some not.Â I know there are few days of the month left but my poker goals for November are as follows...
Have a goal for each session.Â Focus on an area of my game during each session, activey work on improving it and review how it went after the session.
Watch live play videos of DC coaches and rather than take notes on the hands themselves, take notes on how the coaches are actually thinking about poker.Â Compile a list of the various coaches thought processes to get an idea of common themes.Â What are they doing that I'm not?Â What are they thinking about that I'm not?Â Identify and begin incorporating them into my own game.
I guess that will do it for now.Â Not the most exciting first blog but there we are.Â Plenty of room for improvement!
