Hard graft. Been playing a lot of tournaments lately but have little/no form. Unsure why but pretty certain that its just a poor run at the moment. Obvously variance is huge in MTT's but i would have liked a win by now.

Played the Luton £10 PL game on Tuesday night. Really just a chance to let my hair down. Dave knocked me out fairly early doors after i made a bad call. Luckily for me, the welshmans form continues and he kindly offered to swap 20% with me before chopping it with Alan Geddis, a fine player. So that combined with a little profit from the cash game had me in a bouyant mood.

Beginning to think that maybe poker isnt for me long term. I'v made a few quid in the couple of months iv been playing, but the going is tough. The mental strain of winning and losing quite large amounts of money is taking a heavy toll on someone who is generally easy-going.

The good news is that next friday i go skiing- woohoo. Should be fantastic. Also, was planning to tak e me lady away to the maldives this easter for a couple of weeks. Seeing as that looks like cotsing about 3 grand, those plans are probably going to change. Egypt or Thailand look likely.
As i write im just approaching the 15k bubble, but with a shortish stack. Lets see if i can luckbox my way to a win. Seems to be what everyone else does.

'It's not for me'... I get that feeling a lot, but then I have a nice winning session and everything's happy days again.

If you're enjoying it and you're not doing your bollox, then it's definitely for you.

Ride the storms.

Cheers for encouragement snoops.
Love to be one of those players that just always wins/ everything they touch turns to gold......JP for example.
