“We have normality. I repeat, we have normality. Anything you still can't cope with is therefore your own problem.”
~ Douglas Adams, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Well, as normal as my life ever really gets. Vegas is over, and the vacation planning has yet to begin. So I'm working on my poker game.
My poker playing over the last month has sucked. I had a major accident where I slipped on a wet tile floor and fell into a big puddle of weak-passive. Took me forever to wash the damn stuff off!
This week has been good so far. I spent Sunday writing some objectives (which I'll keep private for the moment), and reading through DoubleA's book (damn, this is good!). I took some time out to chill and work on a new knitting project. Of course I did listen to the Phil Gordon's Little Green Audio Book while knitting.
Yes, I am quite aware that I may need professional help, thank you.
On Monday I played a $4 x 180 SnG on Stars. No distractions. No other bloggers. No girlie chat. No TV. The only noises in the apartment were from a snoring cat and chillin' lounge techno on the speakers. I concentrated, I waited, I pounced ... I came in fifth. Oh sweet jeebus, placing ITM feels so good.
I've done well in some cash games as well, and have doubled my bankroll since adding to my balance of 43 cents on Sunday. (I worded it that way on purpose - "doubled" sounds more impressive than "I made fifty bucks", don't you think?).
So I've challenged myself to stop goofing around and to double my bankroll again by the weekend. I'll keep you posted.
