Okay, this month just proves how lazy I am as a poker player. I began this month with the hope of breaking last monthâ€™s low volume of 50 hours, and somehow I havenâ€™t even managed that. Iâ€™ve been distracted, ok? Iâ€™d like to say itâ€™s by something important, but Iâ€™ve become somewhat addicted to League of Legends, a free DOTA clone.
I have, however, signed up for this Mount Robusto think which has placed me with a group of like-minded players looking to improve at PLO, so at least Iâ€™ve got plenty of new people to talk to about poker, so Iâ€™ve fulfilled the goals set out in the previous post.
In fact, I actually appear in one of the new DC videos, Basecamp Episode 1, with DJ Sensei. It was a bit of an odd experience, knowing that everything you say would be immortalised in time. Anyway, Iâ€™m the one taking up all the air time blabbering about HU PLO.
I think this whole thing has motivated me a little to up my volume. Iâ€™ve resubscribed to DC and Iâ€™m going to check out some videos I missed out in my downtime. Iâ€™m going to try my best to play more often, interact with people more often, and not spend 8 hours every day playing LoL (game needs a better acronym), of which Iâ€™ve somehow played more than poker this month.
Anyway, here was a fun hand from today. 5-bet pots 500deep are fun when youâ€™re the one who doesnâ€™t have AA.
