So for some reason I have never written a blog before and I am not exactly sure what one writes about in a â€œblogâ€. I Just bought P90x with my roomate John (KasinoKrime). Milk sucks John and you know its true! We just finished our first workout. Itâ€™s supposed to get you embarrassingly ripped. I have been slacking at the gym as of late, and it was quite difficult; especially the core part at the end. Also, why you would want to work this hard if you arnâ€™t an athlete? Who cares if you are uber cut and limber if you donâ€™t use it competitively.
Ok, on to poker. I spent the last 3 months coaching A LOT and working constantly on my game. Turns out teaching is the best way to learn :) For some reason I wanted to be good MTTs, so I watched a couple videos and talked with some solid MTT guys about how to master this retarded form of poker. I used to be way too tight during the middle and late stages but learned to open my game up a lot and use that supposed skill edge vs all the random clowns. As a result, I got big over and over with basically zero success. It seemed that whenever I ran good during the middle stages I would run poorly at the end. This was exceptionally frustrating for me. I did get HU couple times (finally), but got smoked by aggro monkeys who were nitty before and 3b constantly while thoroughly thrashing me. During this extremely frustrating time I also played like my C or D game in cash games much more than expected and have not been doing so hot. A couple days ago, I made the decision to only play when I am playing like fairly well or better and quit immediately if not. Also, I am coming off a downswing and have been spending a lot of money on travel, sooooo looks like its off to grinding 2/4 and 3/6 to rebuild. FULL RING for the win! I think one of the things that makes being an online poker player (classiest means of an income ever) so fucking juicy is the immense volume of freedom that is spoon fed to you every day by people that suck at this randomly popular card game. Consequently, I spend a lot of time doing fun things that do not involve accruing monies, and never sit down and play. I am going to give that a shot now and see what happens.
