A couple of days ago I randomly cooked up this idea to set aside a day of poker where I donate half of my profits to charity, which I will be doing tomorrow. I did this for a few reasons, but mainly to see how it would affect me having a different motivation to play other than running up numbers in my excel spreadsheets. I also feel I have had so much rungood that it wouldn't at all hurt for me to give away 50% of my winnings for only one day.
Here's the site that explains the thing in more detail, where you can contribute if you wish. Or better yet, take part yourself, and donate half your winnings for the day. You won't know what it can do for your game until you try it.
I'm pretty geared up for tomorrow. Since I came up with the idea, I actually felt a lot more motivated playing (and playing well) and I've probably made myself more money by coming up with this idea - up $40k in 11 days now - than I will give away, so it's win/win really (except for the people who lost money to me). So far this month I've only lost one day, for a total of $400, so here's hoping it won't be a huge disappointment and I continue my heater.
