After my girlfriend left on February 1st, I thought I’d jump right back into my grind routine, putting in the same kind of effort that allowed me to play 6,000+ games in December.  But that didn’t happen. I struggled to find that spark to sit for long sessions.  I’d put in an hour or so […]

It’s been a few days, and I’ve yet to get back into my work-routine.  Started off well enough; put in 70 games on the first day with the goal of building on that the following morning.  Unfortunately, I woke up at 6 AM with terrible stomach pain. I tossed and turned for a bit before […]

The Second Elite

The Second Elite

Only a few short hours ago, I reached Supernova Elite on PokerStars for my second (and final) consecutive year.  It came on the heels of a rather swingy 11-hour day and while I easily could have split that workload up into two, three, or even four days, I was determined to grind through and not […]
