Well Hello again guys,
It's been a while, been some vacation time, also from work and from poker. Did a lot of reading about master's journey, self discipline, changing the human consciousness, setting and respecting goals.
This new me started poker with a bankroll of 50$ on 5NL (10 buyins , out of bankroll, but self agreed with that). What happened made me very happy. I played 5 days so far, starting 18th of August, and played 17k hands. Current bankroll: 150$, with 17 BB/100 in 17k hands. IT's not a long time at all, not a large sample size, and it's not a hot run (I lost every day 5 buyins, and come back a won 8 for example), but for the first time I am winning, am playing according to my plan for 5 days in a row. I have excluded myself from anything else than 5NL, and this daily win is making me very confident. So .. good news.
But there is also a problem. I am obsessed with playing. 17k in 5 days is quite high for me. I am multitabling 12 tables at a time, and doing it great. Timewise it's OK, I play about 2k hands in 2 hours.
When I find a little dead time (15min, 30min), all I can think about is just play a little poker. And I do it, I win, but at the end of the day most of my thoughts were directed to poker. Is it normal? Somebody has some advice of controlling also this part?
