it has been exactly one week since i last played the game.

the truth is, i miss it, but not as much as i thought i would. maybe because i was on a downswing for about a couple of weeks and the last hand i played was a really bad beat that cost me about a 4K pot. i really want to play, but only with the regular crew and maybe a good old single table SNG. but i'm keeping myself pre-occupied with other things while i'm not playing, so i'm not really "looking" for a game. maybe i'm burned out? maybe the recent events has also contributed to these feelings too. hmmm...

right now my mind is focusing on the big event on the 17th. i know it's still a couple of weeks to go, but wouldnt that be a nice little christmas present if you can bag that one? dang.

what do you do when youre not playing poker? what keeps you busy?

Dreaming of poker... Playing poker online... Playing poker on your PSP... Playing poker on your XBOX...

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
