Life is precious, so is poker
As some of you may know I have had some health issues lately and I have come to realise I will probably never be able to work full time again, but at 57 I am still here so I am not complaining, there are a lot of people far worse off than me, look at Libya and Japan for example.
I play on lots of poker sites
and have decided sadly that I need to withdraw all my money from them, which is a few thousand, to pay some bills. I havent worked for a few months now and bills that have been ignored need paying, but my poker cash will clear them so thats ok.
Money will be tight but again I am lucky cos I am single, own my own home, dont drink much and dont smoke so my living expenses are minimal.
But I am not stopping playing poker, I am doing what Ferguson did, I am going to start with freerolls
and grind my way up, which will be pretty hard as I am basically a pretty rubbish player
I was a bit fed up at first but now I see it as a new start, luckily I have just become a member of the brilliant CC freeroll club and will be playing in all of them I can, hopefully getting the BR to play in the CC cash tourneys.
As Bob Dylan said "when you ain't got nothing you've got nothing to lose"
I wont kid myself that I am going to do what Ferguson did, build up to $10.000, even with a BR I never got near that, but If I can grind enough to play in a few MTT's I will be happy and if not I will stick to playing freerolls.
This is not a post looking for sympathy, it is exactly the opposite, I am more positive about my poker than I have been for years, I am more positive about everything, when you have been close to not being here your perspective changes, if I win great, if I lose fine, I'm gonna enjoy my poker anyway
Life is precious, so is poker, enjoy them both
