Some recent poker sessions

Well plan A of the day worked so far as I have put in over 3K hands now if I only was not down 6 buy ins things would be much better I suppose. Taking a short break to regroup. I have been playing pretty damn good for the most part but I have managed to donk off a few chips here and there unnecessarily but I have been on the taking end of some pretty nasty beats.

Just gotta play through the downswing. I had another 8 buy in downswing yesterday at 100NL but already 15 buy-ins up from the down point. At 100NL it is very important to get position on the big donks. Don’t be afraid to get up from the table and sit back down or join the wait list in order to get position. Just today I had bad position on a donkey with a huge stack and could not get anything going. I got up, managed to get a seat to his left and got his 4 buy in stack pretty quickly.

Hope the holidays are pleasant for you all. A little bad news as I just found out my little girl has the measles even after receiving the first two vaccinations for them. I believe she has been suffering from the virus now for several days and had the spots a couple of days ago but now they are going away. I suppose the vaccines kept it to a somewhat limited case but still not a nice thing to go through for a kid. Hopefully she will be fully recovered before the trip this Sunday.

Well made it through my first week of no alcohol in a very long time and it hasn’t been terribly easy as another Christmas party was today with more free wines and my supervisor took our lab out tonight for dinner and they ordered wine and the smell of it wafting through the air was very tempting but I was able to abstain so making progress I suppose.

Need to put in at least an hour or so of work tonight as I haven’t played any today and I need to make some progress on the bonus. Will probably crank open 10 tables of limit to build up some frustration before I go to sleep.
