Also as a tip, you gotta picture nut bad cards when ur tryn to fade. So like in hand 1 you need to be screamin 8! Thats how u get that nut J to roll off no problem imho.

#mentalgame
nice adversity is always great when you move up. yeah, it's rare i'd jump in, there was just a great spot.

haha, i'll try this new fading technique, will let you know how it goes

haha, i don't really have much of an intention to be playing anything other than 500 atm but when there's a spot, there's a spot ya know. mental game is STRONG!

haha, we went out, came back, cat was no where to be seen (she's a house cat). Bathroom window slightly open so obv think she's climbed out. Go knocking on neighbours doors, searching the streets totally losing my ****. ishter then locks us out the fkn house so we can't get in. Look through letter box and she's there staring up at me, fml.

Got pretty demolished today. Nearly all the losses were me bluffing off stacks and i don't think i wanna post any of them for obvious reasons.



Done for the day and have clients tomorrow, but will play a bit in the evening!

The cat was clearly setting up the power dynamic that you are going to have to deal with over the next while. Sorry that you were owned by a cat, but most animals do that. No shame in it for sure.

      Mastering Mental Game and Mental Health

      gl on getting rostucko! Really grim hands in the 5kNL as you say have to take those shots though and keep plugging away.

      Cool cat story, my friend has a similar arrangement looking after a cat for a while. Think his spent most of its time in a box under his bed, sounds like your one is a bit more interesting!

        Our mates wedding was so much fun. Beautiful venue, great food/speeches and a general awesome vibe. Grinded nearly 5k hands even though i'm totally knackered and managed to book a modest win.
