Re: Solid's 2015

Going to spend 5 days with my girlfriend so she can rejuvenate me.

But I feel like I need a non poker challenge to do while I am away. No idea what but I need a challenge!

When I get back I will be putting my Heart and soul into attempting to become a winning cash player (currently losing at -9BB/100) at NL100Zoom over small sample. But I will spend the rest of the year trying to become a better cash game player.

Next year I plan on really upping all MTT and SNG volume and playing to try and Maximise Hourly. Essentially, I will spend more of next year actually grinding. Less time studying, less time on ****** Facebook, less time and money powing taxis and tshirts. Next year I will be showing so much heart and trying to be the most professional and complete poker player I can be and have been to date.

It has seriously depressed me that during this downswing, the effect has been a severe lack of confidence resulting in hours of study taken away from time spent grinding. But overall I have felt less of a need to log in and grind and been too willing to waste time. Really this is unacceptable, how can I call myself a proffesional when I'd pretty much slack off any day I felt like if I was invited to go and do something.

Need to find a better moderation. After all, this is my job. Sometimes I need to say "sorry can't do that - gotta work today" and then actually put in 8 hours work. I need this back.

I need it. I need it. I will not throw away what I have achieved so far.

If anyone has any tips on how to approach next year by hitting the ground running professionally, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

Re: Solid's 2015

TONIGHT IT IS SOLID V WATERGUN ROUND 2!!!!!!!!!!!

Come and rail people if you are bored!

Also I have only been up 5 hours so today I will be attempting:

5k hands and/or amass a 1000BB stack on a table.

All games will be NL50 today including my match V watergun. No rules this time just for fun.

Funnily enough I consider losing at 30BB/100 EV to a friend fun nowadays!

Here we go!

Re: Solid's 2015

Never ever felt this bad before. My card distribution has been truly horrendous for 6months.




Sucks that my game is better than it has ever been yet I feel like this going into the new year.

;( ;( ;( ;(

I am.

But the reason I am good at MTTs is because I can play other formats.

Re: Solid's 2015

So, will be back in UK in less than 48 hours.

Everything sorted and stuff shipped back home. Tomorrow is fake xmas with the gf so the bender starts tomorrow as I ain't flying sober and haven't drunk for like 4 weeks.

The holidays should be great! Feeling so much better now after some time off. Got my body fat % to around 11% and getting damn close to deadlift and squatting 2x my bodyweight. Next year will become a certified buff dude.

Everything is ready for me to crush next year. Thread going up soon about selling a bit for the LAPT.

Already looking forward to next year and destroying everything I play. This years results coming soon to wrap this thread up.
