Ornate Push




Wednesday, October 31, 2007


I guess you're landing here hoping to read about how I just played 5 days of solid poker and am back on my horse. Well, it ain't that simple, see. I have just had a 5 day weekend, and it was fantastic. I read a great book about Troy and the Greeks and all that mystery. I did some work on my flat, though not as much as I should have. I watched the first 5 episodes of Heroes Season 2 and the film Kenny, both of which are excellent by the way. I played a little poker in between. There are problems, as you can probably tell. Not skill problems, or math problems, or bad reads. Just timing, or patience, rhythm maybe. It's a part of the game that's intagible, the zone where the pace of your brain is in sync with the cards, you love every minute of it and don't want to look away in case you miss a trick. Me these days, I'm bored after 20 minutes. Quite disconcerting really. I'm not sure if the solution to this is hammering away for four hours multi-tabling some cash games or burning through 20-odd turbo's a night. Maybe some meditation before playing would calm my thoughts a little better. I might try some of the above this week, I'll let you know if I do.

Thanks for the comments on the last post, I've added this blog to my own google reader and the feed does work, so if you aren't getting feeds I think it must be the way you've set it up more than them not working from the blog.

Good luck of you, hope see you at the felt.
