So I had my first skype conversation with Jamie yesterday and it was really good, he sort of spent an hour gathering information about me and how I am thinking about poker and life in general, what problems I have and all kinds off stuff. And then we talked about what stuff I should work more on and what things most pokerplayers struggle with ie. consistency (spel?). You want to be in controll of poker, you dont want poker controlling you. To put yourself in the drivers seat you want to create a schedule for yourself so that you get a regular sleep schedule and you want to eat at the same times each day, add some exercise and some focus exercises and your on a good way to crushing whatever stakes you want :)Â
So for me, the biggest things to improve upon is to start exercising more and to get in controll of my sleep schedule, and also to commit to 2 "poker routines" every day, the preÂ game routine where you prepare yourself for a session, and the post game routine that is sort of an evaluation of the day. I will do this from now on, 100% of the time, and I will let you guys know how it work out.Â
I have a tip for you, I sat at my tables and had a really laggy player to my right, i thought, i had about 6k hands on this guy and he played something like 33/27. But after an hour or so i realized that this player was playing way tighter than that so i filtered my hud to only show the last 4 months in the Hud-display. he had played 23/20 for the last 4 months without me knowing it. So go to your hud-filters and adjust that imo.
Ill end this with one off the best quotes ever:
People think its easy to be a genius, but its not so fun to live in a world full of idiots
