Still Grinding

I didn’t play a lot the last few days. I haven’t been feeling well. Not in the way that most people don’t feel good. Last week was Mental Health Awareness Week. As my friends and family know I deal with depression and anxiety. I am happy that Mental Health is becoming talked about more but for me last week it made my mind race and that made me unable to play or do things that I normally do.

I posted this on my Facebook and tweeted and I thank all my friends and family that did also.

For those that saw it and didn’t I don’t really understand why you didn’t. I am not trying to be rude I just don’t think people understand how big of an issue it is.

Did you know that the chances of having a mental illness in your lifetime are 1 in 5? That is reason enough to talk about it.

…. So I didn’t play much the last 8 days and that cost me the +edge.

For those of you that work. Below is my what I would consider my time sheet. It shows how little I have played the last little while.

But I was able to still cash in the Adrenaline Rush Knockout Board even with my drop in

Yesterday I met up with a friend for lunch. I went to the famous Schwartz Deli http://schwartzsdeli.com. A must if you are visiting Montreal. Normally they have a huge line to get in but it is worth the wait. We had a smoked meat sandwich, so amazingly yummy. After lunch I walked up Mt. Royal and got a manicure. A perfect day.

I played a fair bit today and I am ready to get back to the grind.

And Breath

After playing horribly for a few days I can finally breath a sigh of relif.

It is going to take me a while to move back up. I am going to spend most of this week grinding $2 flips in a game where majority of the 2+2 community thinks is unbeatable. I was headed down the same path but went back, looked at what I was doing wrong and found out that the answer was simple. I wasn’t being aggressive in the right spots and I was fast folding a lot of hands that should have been calls. I am going to continue working on the medium level this week even if that means I will not make the Leader Boad for the +edge . I am currently sitting at 28th

Not all of last week was horrible. I did make Diamond status and cashed in two of Full Tilt Pokers Adrenaline Rush Knock leader boards.

85th on the high for $45.
35th on the medium for $70.

Right now I am sitting pretty on this weeks Knockout Leader Board so I am hoping to do fairly well in it. I am not going to kill myself trying to make the top spots I would rather focus on 4 tables and keep my ev line on the + side so I can move back up.
