Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

I'm sure you don't remember me, but we met at the 2p2 party last year. You were very gracious in your thanks when I went on and on about how great this thread is, and how it really provides a valuable service to its readers. Anyway, thanks so much for taking the time to write what I'm sure was a difficult post. I can't make it to the party this year, but I'm confident there will be plenty of other fans of your thread there to make up for my lack of my blathering on.

Good luck this year...I already can't wait to find out what's in store.

Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

Condolences on your loss. Since both of my parents are also gone, I thought I might post what I read a psychologist said about 3 things which occur in your consciousness when you lose both of your parents.

This might be off topic but maybe some individuals might find it useful in better understanding the psychological implications of losing your parents.

1. Your parents are responsible for creating you from nothing and so they assume a God like persona ....regardless whether you had the best or worst parents in the world.......and when they die, this creative God like force also dies, with its negative psychological impact on your consciousness.

2. Your parents were responsible for keeping you alive with food, shelter and clothing while you were a baby and some years afterwards. Without them you would starve, freeze or dehydrate to death. This life giving protection remains in your consciousness and suddenly disappears when they both pass away.

3. Your parents serve as a wall or barrier to your own death and mortality, and when they pass away, the wall comes down and you are suddenly face to face with your own mortality, death and grave.

All three of the above psychological situations impact all of us when we lose our parents, whether we like it or not, and regardless whether we had the best or worst parents.

Sorry for being so morbid and I had second thoughts about posting this, but I think if we understand the psychological impact of losing our parents, it may help in overcoming the grief and the loss.

Once again, condolences for your loss and I wish you success in future endeavors.

Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

Thanks for the update. Condolences on your loss. I know first hand just how emotionally draining such a decision, and end result, can be. My mother died 5 years ago, and my brothers and I had to decide to end all treatments and let her go. Toughest 2 days of my life, easily.

You'll get through it though, and might find some good comes from this. It's taken quite a while, but I've gotten closer to - and more appreciative of - an aunt and some cousins. They are people that I would now travel to see, if not very often at least once or twice a year. Maybe the same will happen for you, with time. Who knows?

Best of wishes and luck with your poker career! And please do keep up the posts.

Thank you.

Lee

Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

Dynasty, very sorry for the loss of your mom...and your dad a few years back. I still have a hard time thinking about what it will be like when either of my parents pass away. They've both had health issues in the past few years but are both still kicking. I'm lucky that they were young when I was born but they are both in their 70s now. Your mom dying at 67 and I assume your dad at a similar age is really a bad beat (sorry for throwing in a poker cliche but it really is the worst beat of all).

Good luck in your poker going forward. I just spent 5+ months in Vegas running bad (and whining about it) and am losing my taste for the game a bit. I'm only a part timer anyway, but it certainly can be a tough game mentally, even at relatively low stakes.

Looking forward to next year's update already.

Greg
