some poker talk
I’ve really felt like grinding this week due to a combination of dread due to the IRS-rape I’m about to recieve in a few days and just wanting to put in a lot of hands. I haven’t grinded any cash but may do so later today or tomorrow if the mood strikes me.
I played poker two days this week so far due to Thanksgiving ruining the grind-schedule. I played maybe 6 tournaments on Monday, and final tabled the $70k on PS after a wonderful 7 hours, 4 of those spent single tabling. On the plus side, I did record ITM onward with live commentary for PokerVT, which was super crucial in providing me some entertainment so I didn’t feel like killing myself 1-tabling a $50 tournament. In the end, it came out pretty good, and should be a solid video.
Wednesday, my other grind day of the week, I played everything – $3r on up to $100r/300fo – and cashed a pretty notable 7 times that night. I probably played 16-18 tournaments, so 7/16 is a pretty sweet (and sustainable!) ITM rate. I cashed a $3r, $20r, $20r 6m, $30r, $50fo, a $100r, and one more I can’t remember. I recorded two tables of tournament triumph (alliteration week continued!!), which will be my third PVT video. I’m not sure when it’ll be published but I’m going to push for an hour/week of my content to be published starting next week so hopefully it’ll be sooner rather than later.
I feel like my tournament game is stronger than ever and I have complete faith if I force myself to grind that eventually I’ll bink something, either live or online. I just have to put in the hours, and hopefully in the next five weeks or so I’ll win something big and close out the year strong.
