Am I falling out of love with poker?
happening, something I've not really experienced before with poker.
Ok the title wording "poker" might be the wrong thing to say, maybe I'm falling out of love with hold'em.
Two days ago, as normal after everything is done, wife reads her book, or ereader whichever whilst watching some T.V. I usually start a "grind" with SnG MTT's + MTT's..but I loaded my first MTT and a second, then I thought to myself "I don't really want to play" so I didn't bother loading anymore and sat through the 2 games, spewing chips, playing quite bad and didn't care if I busted, which never is the case usually I'm usually so in the zone and hate busting but anyway, after a couple of hours I busted them and just shut down pokerstars
and played around on the computer for a while doing non related poker stuff.
Usually I think about poker quite a bit, (sounds sad) on a day to day basis. Today, I didn't...or had any interest in anything with poker. Tonight, I just watched some T.V with the wife then when she went to bed, I thought "Ok, lets just try play some STT SnG's and see if my interest comes back" I quickly loaded 10 $3.50 games and all filled quite quickly. I sat there looking at my screen with the and players in my games"Tournament will start within 1 minute" and I thought "oh my god, I have 10 of these I REALLY dont want to play" what a waste of money I thought. I saw there was even "regs" at 3.50 grinidng it out and several on each of my table, it made me think "dear god this is pathetic" I'm unsure if it's the stakes I'm playing or what or the grind and all this mass multi tabling taking the "fun" out of it for me.
Anyway, I played AWFUL (ended up with a little profit) but played so bad and didn't care again if I busted. I was open shoving UTG with 16 blinds with suited connectors, 10,2 os and so on, just wanting it to be over or double up whatever was fine with me.
I did this for a while till I ended up with a few tables left and down to heads up in one and so on, again, coming over the top with poor hands etc etc.
Now I've finished, I have no desire to even look at other games running in hold'em. I think I'm bored of hold'em..or something...
I did want to play something different, like Omaha but I've had really bad results and lost a lot of money along with the fact I'm really really bad at Omaha. Limit hold'em slightly interests me and 8game/horse/draw poker/razz etc also interests me which I want to play but I know I'm bad at them but I dunno something isn't right lol. I can happily sit p laying one table of 8game or razz for example but hold'em seems to bore the hell out of me, espically SnG's!
It isn't even as if I'm in a downswing, if anything I was down over a 100 only a few week ago and managed to grind back up a bit so it isn't because I'm losing, I'm making a little bit of money here and there.
Do you think it could be the boring stakes I play and even "regs" at these stakes making it a CHORE more than fun?
any ideas on whats wrong with me? lol
