Skipped my money tournament tonight. This is my Friday night tourney that I have made the most money at by far, yet tonight I was just not feeling it, so I stayed home.
It's funny, while I was righting this in my journal, I went back over my notes and I seen 3 other times where I either felt that I was going to have a bad night or where I just really did not have the drive to play and I ended up playing bad. I think I need to keep this in the back of my mind.
If I am not feeling it and not into it, I think I need to just stay home and watch a little tv.
I do get a little burned out from the constant studying and practice play. Here lately I started taking breaks as this has almost become a job with 30 plus hours of poker related activities every week. I read, watch videos, practice on Poker Stars
and I have a subscription to a poker trainer. I need a break now and then. At first when I started to take it serious there was so much to learn and the gains were huge at first, but now the small gains come with so much more work that it is hard to be excited.
Anyhow, I will take a few days off and get back to it on Monday. Also I am thinking of heading down to the PDX $30,000 guarantee game in June. This will be my biggest tourney ever. Might be the thing to push me to study harder for that next little percentage in my game.
