This morning I got up at about 9:30. It was nice to sleep in. Went over to the parents house and colored Easter eggs till about 2 o clock. I took Courtney to work and I went to the gym. I started playing poker at about 5pm.
I didnâ€™t do so well at all. I lost about 13 buy-ins. Horrible!!!!!!!! Iâ€™m not confident in my game AT ALL anymore. Itâ€™s just plain sickening. These players are so awful at this level. Iâ€™m basically getting blinded out because there is someone in the pot before me every hand. I seriously need to study a lot. It seems like I have no time. If I want to be able to get volume in, I have no more spare time. I guess it would be nice to make money tho. So probably Monday is going to be full of studying poker. I need to just go through a set of tournaments to see what in the hell is going wrong. It might be time to get coaching. I think I am straying off the road to success.
Hereâ€™s the kicker. This week Iâ€™ve played 360 games at the $6.50s and I have an roi of [b]-11%!!!![/b] Besides running horrible as hell, I am like at square one right now. Itâ€™s like I just started poker. I feel so clueless. How is it possible that I have forgotten every single thing that Iâ€™ve learned over the last year?
Although I hate hate hate studying for any kind of length of time, that looks like what next week will consist of mostly. I get so bored, I fall asleep and I get distracted super easily. Another thing I may have to do is just buy Holdem Manager. People have been raving about how good it is for studying and what not. Iâ€™ve had PT3 for a couple years and Iâ€™m super used to it, but I guess itâ€™s just not doing the job. Also, there are several stats that it doesnâ€™t have for the HUD that HEM has.
I also feel like I need another coaching session. I canâ€™t afford it at all right now, but I am so lost in the world at poker. I might need help from the ground up.
Iâ€™ll have a day off from poker tomorrow because of Easter. Courtney and I will be with family all day. Maybe Iâ€™ll get outta this funk.
