Ornate Push

Quick hits

As you could probably tell from the lack of posts in the last two weeks I still haven’t been playing much. I decided to reposition about half my bankroll into the FTSE, which is about as much of a gamble as pushing on a king high flush-draw seeing as I only have rudimentary knowledge of stocks etc, but I see it as a savings account and learning experience. So far things look pretty good and I'm in safe industry sectors, so things won't go badly wrong whatever happens.

I did get to play some decent poker last night, I finished 3rd in a double shootout to the 1m, mainly due to me giving a double up to a short stack when there were 3 left, then getting my aces busted by queens, I wasn't too bothered by that. Mostly I was just pleased that I found the game interesting for the first time in a couple of weeks and therefore was able to watch and concentrate on every hand, not just the ones I was playing. I took my renewed interest to 4 cash tables ($50NL) and quickly made another $50. I decided to quit there while I was happy and ahead, so it's left me in a good mood, and back in the 'zone' of eagerly wanting to play tonight.

I think a break from the game does you the world of good. I try and take a 2-3 day break regularly to stop the poker apathy.
Helps you re-focus too - though it looked like it did you some good too!
