Becoming A Professional

     Before I get to the focal point of this post i'd like to take a moment to comment on the happenings of April 15, 2011/Black Friday. I don't care to speculate, or express my opinions on the legality issues. I will not condemn the United States, or place blame at anyones door. I am not a lawyer, nor do I have enough facts to make an argument for neither the prosecutors, or the accused. All I wish to say is, I am sorry for my countless American friends who have been blind sided, and had their worlds turned inside out. Many of my closest poker friends were directly affected by the shutting down of the main 3 online poker sites in the U.S.A. I do know that 99% of these people are just sick individuals who i'd trust with amounts of money I don't even have. So I wish them all the best, and I hope they are back in action soon :) and I will here to help in whatever ways I can, so HIT ME UP IF YOU NEED ME:) (the help i offered is open to about 5-7 people and not the general American public. You 5-7 people know who you are)

As the title reads "Becoming A Professional" I have acquired a new found respect for what professional poker really is. I don't want to come off like I have it figured out because I have tons to learn, but the true meaning of a professional (in poker especially) is not easily discerned, and I am ready to acknowledge that my progress so far in poker has been a drop in the bucket.

Last night I was playing a session while a friend of mine observed. I engaged in battle across multiple stakes, from 2/4 to 5/10 6max. I had no more than got started when the session began to go poorly. The games were exceptionally good, and my friend would repetitively emphasize how big my edge was. I used his words of encouragement to distinguish my firey tilt, and the session prevailed. Hand after hand I could feel myself losing grasp of the session, and the tactility of adverse results began to take its toll. I was tilting. It wasn't as if I was on full blown tilt, but I was definitely tilting, and my friend's prudent words of fortitude began to fall upon deaf ears. It's not the first time this has happened, but for some desolate reason it hit me hard after the session, and I am ready to declare war on tilt, and avow it's detriment to my poker game.

I think I have come a long way in poker, strategically speaking, but I have scoffed at countless details that make someone a "Professional" in the true sense of the word.  It's not just tilt. There are many obscure skills and understandings I have ignored out of arrogance or naivety. I won't list them all because there are A LOT of them lol. I would say the top 3 for myself would be; tilt, money management and structure. I feel if I improved 25% on all 3 of these things it would result in me saving a ridiculous sum of money. 

My advice to everyone after reiterating these post session thoughts is to really consider poker's vast demand of attention to detail. Never become the guy who settles, or sweeps problems under the rug. Always be weary of the seemingly insignificant non-strategical element of poker and embrace your flaws. I think if you practice this intently you will be well on your way to attaining your aspirations, I know I am going to try my hardest to implement this as my standard practice. GOOD LUCK!

Nice post Jo, I hope I learn the disciplin to bankroll management one day, and stop screwing around at up to 400nl shortstacking as a 10nl player. :)
