Yea, it’s been awhile since my last post. I’ve probably sat down with intent of writing a new blog about 5 times now, but there really hasn’t been much to say. I suppose there’s always a couple weeks each summer where I don’t have much going on. Luckily that’ll change next year. The WSOP is over (except the FT), and I’ve got a lot to look forward to.
I’ve started making some healthy changes in my daily routine to help prepare for the upcoming events. Aside from eating healthier, just eating at all is a step in the right direction for me. I’m not obsessed with my body or anorexic, but I used to go days without eating more than a couple meals. I’ve started snacking on fruit and reduced the amount of soda I drink drastically. I think my stomach’s starting to expand, because I’ve noticed I’ve been able to eat more.
I’ve also started exercising a little. I can’t really run long distances (although I can jog a little) or do much on my feet yet. Just been doing some basic stuff, mostly upper body. I honestly haven’t exercised much at all the last few years, and it feels great.
Although I am confident in my game, I don’t think playing poker for a living is reaching my highest potential as a human. I suppose everyone is guilty of not reaching their potential, but there’s gotta be something else out there. That said, with EPT’s, WSOPE, and my 21st birthday in a few months, it’s time to get serious. I’m going to be playing poker for a living for at least a couple years. I’m really excited to start traveling and playing the circuit again, and feel very motivated to succeed.
Here’s my tentative schedule:
August: Possibly a VT studio trip, possibly a TS trip.
Sept 8th: Fly to Barcelona.
Sept 10-14th EPT Barcelona.
Sept 15th-October 6th: WSOPE/EPT London
Oct 7th-9th: Fly home, drive to Fallsview
Oct 10th - 16th: WPT Niagara
October 18th: 21st Birthday, $5k at Bellagio
October 20th-25th: WPT Fiesta Al Lago @ Bellagio
There’s also the WCOOP going on while I’ll be in Europe (lets hope I find a stable internet connection), and I’ll probably be at Foxwoods in early November.
Well, I need to get some sleep.
