Life Shouldn't Be A Fuckin' Grind

I will never be a poker pro, but my lifetime poker ledger is positive and I think that's something to be proud of.

Quick Update

I haven't played much poker lately for two reasons. I've been busy and I haven't had much desire to play. Right now, I'm not playing unless I really want to play and I think that's a really smart idea. I'm a little burned out right now and I definitely won't be playing any limit Hold'em until August 1 at the earliest. I may not play much at all for a couple more weeks, depending on my mood.

I did play a few tournaments on Tuesday night which was my day off work. I couldn't get anything going in the FTP 17k or the $75 11k guarantee, or the 11:30 pm $22 on Stars. I did build a decent stack in the Party 40k though and was just a bit below average when it got into the money. Then, a fairly aggressive big stack made it 8k from MP with blinds of 1k/2k and a smallish ante. I had about 28k left and found TT in the BB, I jammed and he insta-called with 33. 66k in the pot and a 3 hits on the river. GG me and $12 profit. Sucked, but what're you gonna do, woulda been worse if it had been on the bubble or really deep. It hurt, but that's poker, I still woulda had a long way to go even though my stack would have been almost twice the average.

Anyway, haven't played poker since that night and may not play again until Sunday at the earliest. We shall see. I do plan to have a blog soon about bankroll management and going broke in response to yet another gone broke thread on FCP earlier this week. I'm tired of reading about people going broke because I truly believe that it's not inevitable for everybody. For a long-term loser of course it is, but for anybody capable of beating the game, going broke is not inevitable, you just have to know how to manage your bankroll.
