Sorry for the long delay between blogs, for some reason I really have not been in the mood to blog. There was one blog I had in the works, then my camera crashed and erased all my crazy ski weekend pictures, so that blog was all for not...anyway...
This is the anniversary of "when it all began." I am walking around my apartment, doing laundry, looking for matching socks, charging my DVD player, looking for extra contact lenses...all the things that I do before leaving on a long trip. It was one year ago, that I wrote my first blog before leaving on this same trip to sunny California for the LA Poker Classic. Again I am very excited about this trip. Lately it has been brutally cold in Boston, so a blast of warm air and some golf could be just what the doctor ordered!
Lately I have been on a hot streak playing online poker. I had back-to-back losses at the end of January that were very big, but besides those two sessions, I have not had any other major setbacks since the first of the year! And overtime it has become obvious that the best way to make money online, is to plug away and book lots of small wins, opposed to taking shots and going for the big score.
This possible run of good fortune may be partly do to my workout regimen. I have been training for the Shamrock 1/2 Marathon on March 18th. I always feel like I play better poker when I am working out and running, and lately I have run more miles than ever before. I feel strong and confident about putting up a solid time in March Race.
While in Cali, I plan on playing some golf, playing some tourneys (not as many as in the past), and mostly cash games. The WSOP circuit event in San Diego is only a 5k event (opposed to 10k in the past) so I may make the trek down there at the end of the month. I would also like to play the LAPC Main Event, but I think I am done directly buying into these events since my track record pretty much sucks. Events played around 10, direct buy-ins around 6, cashes 0, so while everyone deserves to splurge a little and have fun, I don't think this "hobby" is worth 60k+ a year.
more updates to come from the flip side ...
