lolz, literally just finished a Tom Bilyeu vid, switched to this tab and there's the next xD

that table tells us to play poker outdoors when the weather is optimal. gotta need a good laptop-screen for that, rite?

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

hola

took pretty mcuh the entire week off. not exactly but skipped one day where i coulda played (wednesday) rest of the days was full with other things anyway, so not even the laziest week i ve ever had

played first session of the week today and honestly i feel like i played pretty badly, couldnt focus in the second half of my session which sucked. good news is it s possible to be lucky while playing ba so managed a pretty amazing result for the session (+4k)



will play a late session tomorrow and then firgure out the rest of the week

time to set some new goals tho for this upcoming week:

[ ] 4 sessions

[ ] 1 review with somebody

[ ] go through entire backlog of tagged hands

[ ] run 5 sims and study these spots thoroughly (I FKN MANAGED TO FINALLY INSTALL PIO WOOOT)

[ ] 7/7 shoulder exercize days

[ ] cook 3 big dishes

[ ] home breakfast 6 times

I actually mean using multiple ingredients and heat and chemical reactions that constitute proper cooking mostly. Been having some toasts lately tho so fk me right

IP not for rent and no visitors for a while sorry peeps

Caught a bug that destroyed my digestion Monday and haven’t played since. Also decided while I was added to forget how sleeping works so back to sleeping zero. To the point where I went to the doc today to prescribe some meds. Gonna wait with taking them as I realized I could make my room darker so spent all day being a handyman (is that the word for home builder?) will see how that works. Got ear plugs too for two front war on anything distracting me. Next step drugs step after that would be melatonin but hoping I won’t need any drugs cuz if so I basically concede to being addicted to whatever it ends up being. Been a pretty crappy week so far won’t lie. Just now had a falling out with my mom which really didn’t help either.

Can’t seem to ever just have a great month on all fronts. Financially it’s an amazing month yet I just feel like trash. Same as last May same as majority of November. Really just give me average everywhere for a change please

The darker the room the better. The best temperature to sleep is ~ 15-19 Celsisus, also u can try wearing socks. This will help dilate your blood vessels faster and push your internal thermostat to a more ideal setting. No screen before going to bed...these are small things, but they can help you. I don't know you meditate, but that is helpful also, there are guided meditations for sleep..
I would try to avoid drugs, especially if you get addicted easily.

honestly thats incredibly unliekly to happen in the short term. she s incredibly stubborn and basically did sth that was super hurtful to me and wont ever accept she did anything wrong. pretty tard spot to be in, pretty much just up to me to suck it up and forget it cuz there will pretty much never be a resolution to this

cool timing considering gf and i have flights booked to watch a musical with her and her hubby. srsly debating cancelling as i d also miss a whole weekend of series. owell i ll see how i feel about this whole thing in a week

_________


sup month is over. had a very good month at the tables, money wise. play wise i realized about 2 weeks ago i tend to autopilot too much so consciously limited my table cap to 4 less than usual today and honestly going forward as well. not actually missing much in the way of buyins that way and focus is much higher. will be hard to play max 12 tables with a bazillion series coming up but has to be done.

goals are still weekly, so goal review will happen saturdays.

peace

I guess white noise refers to any sounds that let you fall asleep more easily like waves, rain, thunder etc. although there is some actually white noise which is like the sound when you put on a vinyl or a tape.

I am very bad at breakfast. Up to the point that I skipped it at all to act like some "interval fast" girl
so the only "cooking" breakfast of the top of my head is scrambled eggs and such. Although I can make tight sandwiches, putting a toast with cheese into the oven is not the 3-star chef skill you're looking for I guess.

But a grilled cheese sandwich pulled apart and filled with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and additional ham/turkey/sliced eggs with a sprinkle of salt/pepper/paprika is definitely some good ole' stuff

Got a nasty bug on Monday that completely rekt me for two days, rest of week apart from one night I basically couldn’t sleep. Did some rearranging of bedroom and was productive in some other ways but overall this week was a complete waste of time pretty much. Not too much I coulda done differently however. Owell, tried to sleep with ear plugs twice and worked okay ish, still not ideal but better than withou. Gonna work on that going forward

Goals for this week basically exact same as last week

Gl today people

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

its a classic sunday 300$ decent guarantee field - not amazing but certainly soft enough to be a must play especially with no rake

structure was pretty bad though, 2ß-25bb average on the entire final table felt pretty meh

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

Saw you got 4th in that $320 nice score. I noticed that was a pretty tough lineup in the final 4 how did it play out?

I think we have similar mindsets in terms of value grinding and one of the things I find difficult is turning off midstakes/multitable mode against elite players like Steffi Graf(tekkel). Do you feel me on this or is it not an issue?

I'm posting this in my thread as well but your PGC was one of my favorite threads in the office last year. Wish you the best in 2019 and really respect the grind/heart/attitude.
