The Grind

I thought I would write a bit about my current Grind, its pros and cons, and other stuff Im working on to improve.

Typically Im working from 7am-9pm, weekdays. This means I come home, Go directly to my computer and try to put in a solid hour, before i get too tired, and then go to sleep. Rinse and Repeat mon-fri. I like trying to put a solid hour in every night, its tough tho, with co workers wanting to hang after work, sometimes I have work related Homework to do. Sadly this is the only way I can grind this challenge short of quitting my Job. Saturday and Sunday, I usually Reflect on my play, go over my notes and/or flashcards. and do a bit of reading. Then Ill try to grind a decent block of HUSNGs. I feel I’m playing better, tho my Bankroll doesn’t Reflect it. I’m currently at $375. Im trying not to focus too much on what I’m behind on, and rather just focus on my play, and why things are working or not working. If I can Finish this month strong, Ill be very happy with myself and the progress.

Update!

Hey Guys!

So Sorry for the much delayed Post. Ive been working out of town in Eagle Mountain California for the last 3 weeks. What a rush! I work in the Film Industry as a camera man, so I was shooting a small film out there called “Exfil”. I was working mostly nights and very long days, so I was unable to Grind very much. Sadly I was also using my phone to tether my internet through, So I wasn’t having the easiest time playing.

 

I wish I could tell you I was doing well with my challenge, But the sad fact is, I lost money last month. My current Bankroll is $340. Its great to be back home though. I’m working on another feature currently, but the comfort of my own desktop, as well as access to all my notes, and a controlled playing environment, should help immensely. I plan on trying to work out a good schedule for playing and studying. Also I want to Re-Read some poker books. Books like Image

 

Its a great book if you haven’t read it. It tackles some really great ways to approach hands and ways to logically dissect the right courses of action. Its kinda in a workbook format too, so if you are so inclined you can grab a notepad and paper and work out problems with a calculator. I like this format, it makes you feel like you’ve accomplished something after reading. The reason Im Re-reading it tho Is i feel like repetition helps me retain what I’m trying to learn. So back to the books I go.

 

It feels great to be back in my apartment though, so I’m thinking positive thoughts about my results this month. Hope everyone’s well,
