Had an awesome weekend at uni. We were looking at integrative case formulation which basically means how we approach working with a variety of client groups; personality disorders, various other presenting issues and looked at medication. The psychiatry world is a pretty messed up place to say the least.

Came back raring to play some poker and get on with my december goals but got soul crushed in every hand.



vs rec. i'm not good enough to fold river, though i never win

    I basically folded away 40bb at a time for the other -3500. Fortunately i've been reviewing every medium sized pot with my dog friend, so i'm feeling very good about my game.

    I'm a goalkeeper too, toughest position to play, everyone blames you for letting people score goals, even when you're playing with 10 other people that think they're Romario, all trying to score goals, even guys that are in the defense lol.

    have you played futsal? It's like the 6-max of soccer, there's some insane action as a goalkeeper, really fun.
