Danger Danger !

Look out ! I can access Poker Pwnage and their videos from my desk at work.

Workplace productivity is about to hit an all time low if I'm not careful.

That's if I signup, I've never signed up to one of these before because to be honest I would rather be playing and learning than watching some other guy play. But since I can't play at work this might be the next best thing.

Now I just need to get over the fact that "Pwnage" makes me think "m0r0n"


Ok. Over it. Getting annoyed at words, dough. I mean doh. Doh !

Still working at it

Played again last night ! Who'd have thought ? No overkill or anything, just a $4 180 in which I was knocked out around 40th place. I didn't get many cards and was too distracted or tired to find spots where I would normally be winning chips without cards to back it up. I still enjoyed it though. Went to be soon after getting knocked out so I'm feeling pretty energised today so far.

Work shouldn't be too full-on today either as the boss is away so the plan is a quick trip to the gym after work and then back home for some shake-n-bake :)

Still catching up on everyones feeds. There's actually been less to catch up on than I thought there would be.

post two

Played quite a lot last night, but had trouble staying in the moment. There were lots of slow players and i found myself constantly looking to the next hand instead of the now. Still finished about even for the night and 'stars play-dough is looking as healthy as it has in a long time.

Going to the gym tonight but will probably still have a game when I get back. Planning to take either next week or the one after off as holiday to get christmas shopping done online and play some longer lasting tourneys.

Don't hold your breath, but with the onset of winter the blog might be back.

P.S. Dd I'm amazed to see anyone still checking here for updates, thanks for saying hi !

Poking fun

This blog is really stuttering isn't it ? I play a bit, do ok then get go back to real life. Did poker become so unimportant ? The irony of course is that this attitude of it not being so important is what makes me play better when I do sit down. How to find a balance between motivation to play and the emotionless reaction to results ?

Another consequence of this attitude is blog being quiet. I don’t need to shout about winning at poker or excuse losing at it anymore. Whatever is, is.

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn’t more complicated that that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.
Sylvia Boorstein

I'm still going to the gym at least twice a week, sometimes more. I'm still playing poker at least twice a week. I'm playing the occassional live poker game.

So far today I haven't smoked or been emotional.

I am practicing accepting the present moment as it is.

I am not sure why I'm posting this as it is enough to write it, it does not need to be shared.

Ah well :)
