We all know that it is not easy to succeed in poker right? But have we ever thought about what it takes to succeed?
I mean most of the players out there who just starting or have been around for a while knows that it's possible to make money playing poker and have a nice lifestyle etc. But have they really think thrue what it takes to succeed? I think 90% of players havent. There are 10% who just getting starter and get so into it and just start invest some serious time and succeed. And all others just hang around for a while and then dissapear.. why? Because they didin't really thought thrue what it takes to succeed and are they ready to commit themselves.
Have you? Are you ready for what it takes?
I have been around since late 2k9 - /more about my poker history can be find in my first post./
But just now i realized what it takes to succeed. So i asked myself a really simple question - Am I ready for this? The answer is Yes.
I mean you absolutely have to know and truly realize what it takes. And once you step on this road there is no way back - turnaround or however you want to call it. And this is actually pretty big decision. So think hard! - and next day, think again. Whatever you do, don't start till you absolutely sure.
Anyway. I took this decision. Im ready for whatever it takes and hopefully never have to look back.
Quick overview what this is really means. aam..
It's simply means that i eat,sleep,breath and drink poker every day! I learn and play at the tables for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I push the limits! There are going to be sweat,blood and tears so to speak.
Summer is coming - chillout. In the weekends lot of friends are out, party or whatever so it's not easy to stay at home learn and grind from day to day. Thats why it is so important to think really thrue before you get started.
Luckily for me I have a really good friend who plays small stakes NL and he is all about to push the limits and put some real effort and time to succeed in poker aswell. So i guess we are both in this road and it is alwasy easyer with someone then alone.
What is the plan? Well it looks something like >
Learn ~ 3-4h every day. It contains -
- Hand/game/player analysis
- Sweat sessions
- Watch videos / strategy and mindset< last one is very important aswell!
- Discuss strategys
- Finding leaks
And all remaining ~20 hours is for grinding and sleep. Ofcorse there are some hours for eating and little breaks but you get my point.
Best of luck to everyone and stay tuned.
