I had enough of everything poker related at the moment and wanna try to start a fresh next month, this blog is meant to be an outlet to get bad stuff out of my head. Im sure the blog is having a negative impact on my game at the moment after this joke of a run ive had. Think i will do some hard thinking about whether i can justify carrying this blog on, i use it for links to other blogs and websites and find it very useful for that but this month it just hasnt worked in terms of separating day to day poker emotions and stuff as it has in the past. There is no point carrying it on if im not comfortable writing negative stuff as well as positive stuff, so many blogs out there only report how wonderful things are after a win and i dont want mine to be one of those really as it gives a wrong impression of the game in my opinion.
I will blog end of month losses etc and prob look at the year to date to try and put a postive slant on things but after that i will leave the blog online and do 1 of several options:
1) Carry on blogging as normal as and when and immediately after highs or lows
2) Blog weekly on a set day
3) Try no blogging for a month to see whether i miss it or whether that has a negative impact itself by not writing it.
Which ever way i go i know it could change but it does annoy a bit when people dont blog for weeks when they have regularly blogged in the past so im stating my intentions up front.
Who knows what im doing next month in way of poker, its tempting to take a lot of time off but at the same time i doubt i would fill my time and know i would feel almost forced to play some good value unavoidable games. One thing i must do is drop stakes and learn to tighten up again and play more ABC stuff. Back to the basics and i guess if i can get some winnings going i will then return to a more "normal" schedule whatever that is !
As many poker players will say (some more often than others) i cant help but say it "i think my luck in the last 2 months has been sick", although im not dumb enough to imply that 100%, i have bound to have run level at luck its just been in nearly all the wrong spots to win anything truly big or inspiring. Unfortunately whilst an approx. $10,000 package to Aussie is big, its so far away it still really hasnt hit me. Caribbean booked, again would like to look forward to that but its months away and im in no hurry for the end of November to arrive !
Maybe i should look at a short break or trip or something for a change of surroundings, who knows, anything to start a kind of blank canvass for the last 1/3 of the year. I do need to buy a car having sold my old one so that could be a good distraction if i get round to looking properly.
Good Old 83s
