Re: *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

really great write up lad, i know poker isnt all there is to life (?) but awesome to see the successful results too.

a lot of what you said about the escapism and the isolation (obv atleast somewhat corona related) really resonates with me, I think if i didnt have to bouldering thing id be in an super similar situation to you. I really dont think u have to worry about this friends becoming acquaintances thing tho, corona not gona last forever and summer is just around the corner so obviously gona be a ton more non bouldering activities going on

hope you had a good xmas/new year tho whatever u were doing and see u soon bro

Man, your threads have been around ever since I registered my account on 2+2 so it almost feels weird that it's coming to an end

Glad to see it end on such a positive note though (didn't even mind the massive wall of txt).

Best of luck for 2021!

Re: *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

Always enjoyed your threads feels weird for you not to have a thread now but makes sense why. If there’s something I learned while in my career in law enforcement it’s balancing full time hours, overtime, going to the gym, doing cardio, cooking my meals, playing poker, being a good husband and being a good family member and friend is quite the challenge. GL in 2021 bro, u the man.

Nice read so far man! I would not give up on the shoulder(obviously Idk all the details, but from having so many injuries in the past, I know that you can almost come back from anything, just a matter of strategy, having a plan, and patience) GL moving forward!

Congrats on re-discovering your enthusiasm for the game dude. I think everyone who has played seriously can relate to the peaks and troughs in their own personal relationships with poker. All the best in 2021 and beyond.

Re: *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

yooo. that was such an awesome update to read. it's just si great to see that out of a super shitty situation, you've been able to take stock and reflect in a really important way on what is/isn't important and what you do/do not want from poker, life and your relationships.

Can't wait till we can have a (vegan) burger in maka maka again and just chat ****.

Sending love my man <3

hope you had a good xmas/new year tho whatever u were doing and see u soon bro

haha think going into tunnel vision and grindinghard then taking some complete nonpoker time to relax isnt the worst way to go about things (you technically have the luxury of being a cash gamer so u have the option of balancing but i def get how that question mark is a thing

ye i mean its def mainly corona induced and i m very much loking forward to summer. even if its jsut to have an occasional figar brekky or something, its prob mostly these little things that are dearly missed. wont lie other than game nights im not even that much of an 'activities' guy, just love hanging out at the river when its warm jsut writing this it honestly could be a case of winter blues too. i usually get like this when its dark and cold haha

hope you had a great xmas as well bud! i hear u re back home for a bit to do some work, whats ur vienna ETA?

*** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

*** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread *** thx boys wonít lie this felt pretty damn good. Picked one of the absolute grandest mtts of the year where I have most of myself to run like the absolute sun in. Couldnít really ask for more (other than winning the heads up for the extra 40k but even there I ran amazing to have the smallest pko heads up in history relative to the money payout so the loss didnít sting one bit)

I even hit a one outer for my timbey life five handed. Absolute insanity *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

Doubt there will ever be a higher note to end this thread on at least poker wise so voila

Many thanks for all the messages and replies here itís absolutely unreal *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***
