First off, many apologies to everyone for leaving you hanging on the blog. I really honestly did mean to write a couple more posts and keep you all updated, but life happens and poker got put to the back burner.
As I think I mentioned, I play college soccer. Toward the end of the summer is when I really start ramping up for the upcoming season. I didn’t go back to Borgata at all in late July or August, and I never even considered going since the season started. Worse still, I haven’t even been playing online. School, family, friends, soccer, a social life, a job coaching soccer (which I’m very excited about!), weightroom, etc. etc. etc. have all left just no time at all for poker.
Also, disappointingly, I went on a downswing after the ridic heater to start my heads up career online. I ran really bad, and wasn’t nearly so good as I thought I was (huge shocker there), and it’s really killed any motivation I’ve had to grind online. Overall in my heads up career I’ve played just more than 37,000 hands for a winrate of 3.7bb/100 which is fairly blah considering I’ve only been playing 50nl-200nl.
But, as my finals end (I’m supposed to be writing my last term paper right now, but I’m procrastinating) my attention turns toward the Borgata once again as I prepare to make my “Ali-like return to the ring” and boy am I excited. I briefly flirted with the idea of grinding online all winter break, but that just sounds boring to me. I’m really itching to play some live poker after a full 5 months without setting foot in a card room.
I don’t want to go making any promises I can’t keep, but there’s an outside chance I’ll be heading down Thursday night for a one night session at the Borg. If that doesn’t happen (and it probably won’t, as I’m leaning toward getting drunk with friends up here to celebrate the end of finals) then I will for sure be down in AC the beginning of next week, for two days between Christmas and New Years, and then a lot more in January before I go back to school. I promise I’ll churn out as many blog posts as possible over this winter break to make up for all the ones I promised but never delivered over the end of the summer. I’m also toying with the idea of using this blog to talk about online poker too, and maybe some other stuff. Time will tell, and I don’t even know if there’s any interest for it.
At any rate, I’m not sure anyone will even read this anymore, but it’d be nice if people did (and feel free to drop me a line if you’re following along). Sorry again for flaking out over the summer, and I’m going to be much more diligent this time around. For real. Seriously though. I really am.
So stay tuned this next month as I win all the money!
Onwards and upwards,
