Been playing a few hands of online poker still and my feel is slowly coming back, which is exciting. I then went out Thurs evening for a curry and ended up playing small stakes poker in the same venue I did the focus group. Compared to last time I was there, my game felt really solid. We were playing 5 handed most the time which is a plus as Ongame is 5-max.
I folded top pair a couple of times and broadway on a 3-flush board, each time right, something hard to do when out of practice. I also made some very thin value bets and a couple of great calls. Feels good that my game is coming back and I will try and keep it at a decent level now as there will be a demand for me to play more.
Another reason I've been playing loads is next week is the forum team challenge. Will be great to finally meet the RTR guys, I means its only been around 3 years?! Study and money has always been a factor when these things have come up in the past, so will be good to finally show some dedication. Looking forward to meeting the other forums too. If you're wondering who I am, look for a tall, stocky, insanely good looking guy wearing a PokerIdol patch!
This weekend will be a quiet one. I felt really ill yesterday and unfortunately had to cancel plans to meet a lovely girl called Monika. Soon I hope! Today there might be a few ales on the cards but I'm not so sure. Tomorrow will be another big work day as will the rest of the week ready for the weekend.
I will be taking one day off next week to attend my first gig in a while, seeing the unique 'Nedry' http://www.myspace.com/nedrymakesmusic who are a live dubstep/electronic band with a Bjork like female vocalist. A uni buddy will becoming down too so will be great to catch up. Will try not to get too smashed so I can work Wednesday!
Played my first game of squash the other night for a few weeks. I've not intentionally stopped, but a few no shows, no opponents and you quickly get used to not playing. I'm still really determined to get fit this year, so gonna start going back even on my own. Also need to hit a golf ball for the first time this year! Looking at these amazing evenings and not going out is hard work, especially as I was playing nearly every day last year. But if I remember, I told myself to make the most of it because at some point I'd need to get my head down. Feels great that that time is now :)
