not playing enough

only got 30 hours so far this month. eff the days just fly by. good news is that the poker gods have blessed me with their run good. I couldn't do it without them, all hail be to the poker gods.

but seriously today is hilarious. I win like 12 buy-ins between 400 and 600 NL, and then sit down to play some tired buzzed rush while I watch and old episode of WSOP from last year and insta lose 5 buy-ins. The hilarious thing is that rush poker is only 200nl, so I'm still up about 5k on the day. thank god for running good at MSNL and running bad at stupid rush poker.

other news, team is in 4th place in my baseball league (link we're grossman marketing). we need to win 4 out of our last 7 games and I think we'll make the playoffs. going to be a tough stretch since we have 5 of those 7 games against the top 3 other teams in the league. I'm leading the league in saves, but not surprisingly closers don't get much notice for the all star game so I'm not playing this friday. not that I think I deserved to make the team, but the game should be a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to going.

also working on planning our honeymoon in october. I think we're going to head to argentina for a couple of weeks. so if anyone has any advice on where to go and what to do in argentina post a comment and we'll get in touch.

that's all I got for now.

July = 120 Hours or Bust

So June was disappointing in that I wanted to play 100 hours and I only made it to 80. The biggest reasons for my shortcoming would be the 5 days I was sick when I only played one session, and not getting any play the weekend we went to our friends wedding. All that being said I had more than enough opportunity to reach my goal, and I didn't. I still had a good month, and I'm definitely not complaining about my results. But if I really want to have another solid year like last year I need to start putting in more hours.

So I'm declaring the goal now and going to be updating my progress throughout the month. I want to play 120 hours this month. I think it's entirely reasonable that I get there. Assuming I play 24 days during the month that only requires 5 hours a day. Basically two sessions a day 5-6 days a week. It is going to be taxing, and it is going to require putting my nose to the grind, but I think I can do it. People really underestimate how taxing that much poker can be on you, but I've gone through tougher stretches of work when I was in college.

so today is day 1 and I'm already behind. I woke up late and I've got a baseball game I'm getting ready to go to. But hopefully I can get in 1 good session late night. and then get up early tomorrow and grind all day. going on a harbor-cruise/concert tomorrow night so that will take away some of my hours. But if I work hard during the day I can get back on track.
