I took a holiday at Easter and sort of fell out of the poker discipline.
Of course Black friday shook things up quite a lot, It didn't affect me from the point of view of my oppurtunities to play, or even the quality of the games, but my main study group was a group of American players, and a few other things (cough: blatent plug http://www.ownivey.com cough) just distracted me from the discipline I had applied to the game this year.
But now I'm feeling much more focussed again. I've booked a few coaching sessions with Inavaccum to try and give myself some more motivation to focus on the game again, and I've also benefitted from a little rungood from the Gods [ made a final table in a £10/5 at the local casino :) ]. So let us see how far we can take it.
I'm back at 5NL for a few weeks to get my mind back on the grind. (Also I broke my bankroll management rules a little bit by playing a Victoria Coren hosted homegame with rebuys),
But I'm hoping I can take another hit at 10NL very soon, and varience willing I can make it stick!
