Even though that is what she said, Iâ€™m talking about keeping a blog. Sheesh, every time I want to write one I donâ€™t have time. Then when I have time I end up doing something else.
Anyway, things are going well. Iâ€™m actually winning over my small sample of strictly PLO this month. Only have about 7K hands between $25 PLO/HA on FTP and PLO50 on Stars but Iâ€™m feeling really good even when I lose. Iâ€™m excited about being rolled for PLO100 from what Iâ€™ve heard and seen the games arenâ€™t that much tougher but itâ€™s double the money! I still have a lot to refine but moving up while learning is a good thing, imo.
The main thing Iâ€™m happy with so far is my ability to NOT play. Thatâ€™s right, deciding not to play sometimes when I have free time has been one of my biggest hurdles. I only have the time after I put my daughter to sleep on week nights to play. Sometimes Iâ€™m just too tired to play my A game but since I started being serious about poker Iâ€™ve always just played no matter what if I had any free time. This has been huge leak and puts me in prime condition to tilt pretty hard. Iâ€™m happy to say Iâ€™ve been pretty good about this and itâ€™s helped me feel better about my decision making over all and really zone in when I am playing.
Now, I just need to balance playing fresh and playing my A game with putting in more volume. Thatâ€™s my current goal. To put in a ton more volume. I have a good opportunity in June to do this. My babyâ€™s momma, yes I have a baby mommaâ€¦anyway, she is taking my daughter on vacation for the entire month of June. So Iâ€™ll have a ton of time to play and study and hopefully crush. My June goal is to play 25K+ hands and try to reach Platinum star. I had gold star a large part of last year then lost it one month when I couldnâ€™t play a lot, computer went down and I went nearly busto. Got back to silver then gold and now back at silver for last month and >halfway to gold now. Iâ€™m going to try for gold this month and if I hit it Iâ€™ll really try for platinum.
Alright, just on my lunch break now and itâ€™s time to get back to work. Feel free to comment on anything, especially the VIP stuff.
