Edit: How is your brm project going?
I think it will be. I used to joke (and still sometimes do) that if all you did was play AA and KK in the first 3 levels you weren't missing out on too much equity and in fact might be gaining it by not getting into tricky spots with TPTK type hands.
It was a bit of an exaggeration, but I don't think by much.
I also don't think that's the case anymore. The games have gotten tougher and being able to squeez any extra equity out of the early game is worth looking into.
The exercise: It's going slowly.
I was rear ended a week ago Saturday and haven't really had the time to put in any volume on it. And then getting crushed when you do have a hand doesn't help either. But it's early, so we'll see. I should have a blog post up about it before I head to LA for the weekend for my semi-occasional trip to Disneyland for Super Bowl Sunday.
