Be very patient with mom. Post partum emotions are prevalent in many new mothers. If you sense anything out of the ordinary, don't hesitate to speak with a doc. Totally normal.

Best.

Ty for the information and will keep this in mind!

I decided to start watching the NFL again this year. I got through the Black Lives Matter intro and part way through the National Anthem. Well, I think I've had my fill of NFL for the year. See you in the Fall of 2021.

He's only squirmy because he senses your inner nit. 3bet QQ a time or two and he will settle right down.

While itís not preferable itís just the way it is.
There's a lot of soft-collusion in the form of checking pots down vs friends that's accepted, but outright squeezing players out of pots at no risk to each other is too much. I also see stuff like players playing aggressively in multi-way pots with medium hands (that don't warrant a lot of action) and when it gets HU they take most of the money back. That's outright cheating and not ok.

And as for sports, turning the sound on before the kickoff is a fish move, imo.

Obviously their are quality people in poker just fewer than the rabble.

my advice is that if the old saying about "you are the average of your five closest friends" is true and your friends are all pro- poker players, then you will need to put structures in place to make sure that you are not following the path of least resistance and rising above the pitfalls that come with gambling for a living.
Obviously easier said than done...
Hey man, appreciate your insight. I completely agree with your take and I'm familiar with that old saying. I surround myself with smart, hardworking, ambitious, high integrity people for the most part and don't drink, smoke, do drugs, or have any major vices such as -EV betting (sports comes to mind).

This isn't the best place, but I have a thread over in PG&C. Feel free to pop in there and share your thoughts anytime. Always looking to improve and get better, especially wrt emotional intelligence and carrying myself.
