I need more days like this

So, i woke up this more planning to have a long day of poker. It was more like 3 sessions of 3 different things.

I ate some breakfast, put in some icm calculations on calling shoves and decide to start my session.

My first session was playing a ton of 180 man turbo sit n go on stars. I ended playing around I believe 30 games over a 2.5 hour period. Giving it my first real run at these games, i had some pretty decent results. I ended up playing around 12-16 games over the 2.5 hr period which was decent, but maybe want to be able to play around 24-30 games at once once I get more comfortable with it. I cashed in 4 tournaments total. Got 17th and 10th for the min cash. And the other 2 I got one 2nd place finish and one 1st!! place finish which was a really nice result.

My second session was kinda random, but I thought I mess around on my full tilt account and play a little rush poker. Played maybe less than an hour maybe 30 minutes, but ended cashing for 2 buyins which was pretty sweet. I didn't know you can play up to 4 tables on each rush cash table. So I 4 tabled some rush and probably could do up to 8 if I really put more time into it. 4 tabling is equivalent to about 16 tables an hour. Really happy with my results and got some of my money back and I shipped some to a coaching session I had last week.

My third session, I had my typical stars 20-24 tabling session. Put in about 1600 hands and up close to 2 buyings.

All in all, it was such a great start and I was thinking about putting in more volume on stars, but my wife, two babies, and her family were heading up to meet a friend and take care of a little business after my 3rd session and she really wanted me to come, so I agreed. Plus it's always great spending time with my wife and babies which I need to do more off but two busy working. It was a great night, we went shopping, had a nice dinner, ended going to the mall and walmart. It was fun and here I am a little past midnight.

Well, keep up on the journey!!

The Daily Grind!!!

So, in the past 2 weeks, I've slowed down on my volume of play after taking quite a few shots at 100NL. I had a rough few sessions and lost quite a bit.

So I've moved back down to 50NL and really really just working on my game. I've put in a lot less volume, playing fewer hours, and keeping my sessions shorter than usually but putting in maybe a couple a day instead on 1 or 2 long 4 hour sessions. I would like to say, that is has been really refreshing and building my confidence back up and have won more in one week then I have in a few months over 50K hands this month. So i'm feeling a lot better these days and hopefully be able to put some larger volume in soon.

I've also had some recent coaching and had a session the other day that I found pretty useful. I also am getting some free coaching on 180man sit n gos and going to put in some volume at the lower buyins for now. I'll probably be starting this up this weekend and maybe put in about 40-50 180man tourneys and see how I do. I'm really excited working with him since we have talked for a while now and he has published 3-4 books,has his own radioshow, and doing all sorts of cool stuff related to poker. So that I am blessed and hopefully this will be a new opportunity to something amazing!!!!

Best of luck on the journey!!!!!

1st Post

Well, I decided to moved my blog over to here for no reason what so ever. I have one at deuces cracked, so i'll probably be blogging back and for. Also depends how much I actually have time to do this.

I play a lot of poker online, work part time and take care of my family. Hopefully, this could be the start of something new and refreshing.

I sometimes ask myself, why I play poker and really, I love the game, but more importantly, taking care of my family is the first priority and hopefully soon have a lot more freedom from playing poker.

Well I guess I'll post again sometime soon!!

Good luck on the journey
