Forgive me Farmers, for I have sinned

Jan. 26, 2011

Today I have played bad.

I was well rested, felt good, won a bit yesterday etc. So I did what any sane, thinking poker player would do.

I flipped my monitor 90 degrees, Got Muse on again, Loaded up 8 tables – which fit nicely in a monitor on its side – and got going.

Immediate double up got me off to a good start. I had 3 absolute droolers playing at various points, two of them on the seat on my direct right. It was all set for an epic 2 hours.

Then I lost focus. Perhaps 8 tabling was too much. Perhaps I was dancing a bit too much (well, chair dancing that is!). Perhaps there is a full moon. I can't explain it.

It wasn't terrible, I wasn't doing anything stupid in big pots, but I was timing out, generally not paying enough attention to game flow, playing a bit passive.

I would have quit earlier if the value wasn't so good. I got it together in the end, won a few nice pots but am not proud of my play today. I think I’ll stick to 6 tables in the future.

I won $400 bucks. I didn't deserve to.

This blog post is my way of letting the poker gods know that I know.

And that matters. We have to be honest with ourselves in this game, as we do in life.

Now you know.

good blog. have more regular breaks fella, you sound like a high-intensity player, without regular breaks (perk of smoking i guess), you wil put your brain under ridic stress. set alarms for 1hr ish periods. gl @ the tables.

Breaks aren't an issue with me. (ask my mentor!) I agree that a break every hour to hour and a half is good. I'm more concerned with playing my A-game as much as possible. Tommy Angelo mentions that any deviation from our A Game can be considered tilt and i tend to agree. I'm pretty harsh on myself tho :)
