February Week 2
I didn't get the volume I wanted. I played Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday which was good but I also wanted to get in a long session on Sunday. I woke up Sunday and felt terrible and decided playing would be a major waste of money. I still managed 90 mtts, 10 short of what I'd like to get. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to get my volume in. I'm thinking of playing 5 days where 3 days I play 30 mtts and the other 2 I play 20 mtts, or playing 4 30 mtts sessions, or maybe playing 4 30 mtts sessions and 1 small 10 mtt session. What I do know is that I want a minimum of 400 mtts played in a month. Right now I'm 49 mtts behind where I need to be. I'm getting to the point where 8 tabling isn't much of a problem and I might start 9 tabling by the end of the week. That should help with my volume.
I fell short of my cardio and weight lifting goals. I managed only 3 weight lifting sessions and 2 cardio sessions where I was shooting for 4 and 3. I think I'm going to start trying to get some joggin in because that's what I loved to do back when I was in shape. It's great for a couple of reasons 1) you get outside 2) it's great exercise 3) it clears my mind.
I'm pretty happy with my play this last week. I had one session where the first 20 min I played terrible, but other then that I made some deep runs. My results aren't great but I gotta think the nice scores are coming. If you total up the 320 or so mtts I've played I've pretty much broke even with some really tough hands that didn't go my way as I got deep in quite a few mtts. A suckout here, a hold there and I'm looking very good but, alas that's mtts for ya.
Save for not really making any money, I really like the freedom of getting up when I want, playing when I want, and not having to do what some retard boss wants me to do. Poker is a funny game because it's often hard to know if you're good. I really wonder if I'm all that profitable. I might just be some guy that's just good enough to barely make a profit, but not enough to live on. I guess the great part of playing full time is I should get a chance to find out or maybe bink something big and kid myself that I am profitable in this game.
Going forward I'm going to have to kick butt these last 2 weeks and get in 249 mtts to get to my 400 mark. February is a big month for me. I think by the end of the month I should have a clearer picture of where I am from a profit standpoint.
