I haven't really posted for a while, mainly due to embarressment. Having completed the Take 2 Promo on FT, and collecting my $50 bringing my bankroll to $65 (which I must say boosted my confidence greatly).... I promptly went on to lose the lot, continuing to play the cash tables. Thus, I went underground.
"What have I been doing since then?" I hear you cry? Studying. Still playing, but not posting... Until now!
I cashed in some loyalty points and got Phil Gordon's Little Green Book, and Phil Helmuth's Texas
Hold 'em. Which I have now read, cover to cover. My game improved, and I cashed in two Partypoker Freerolls
, earning 90c for finishing 165 from 35,000 and 27c for a 300ish finish from 15,000.
As a Christmas present, my mother-in-law gifted me John Vorhaus' Killer Poker and Killer Poker online, which at the time of writing this I am still getting through the first of these. But folks it doesn't stop there!
I have since; twice qualified for the PLO freeroll 2nd round on Betfair, winning both first round heats, managed to qualify for the 2nd round of the WPT freeroll on Party and tonight, I play in the Poker2nite Challenge on UB!!! Something seems to be working. I hope I can keep it up!
I've also just ordered Phil Gordon's Little Blue Book.
A friend and teammate of mine once said, "you can't just play the game, you have to become a student of it."
