someone once told me about a king who didn't like one of the people in his kingdom, thusly, he decided to set him an impossible task.

he calls him to office, (though they probably didn't have offices when this was set) and says,
"i want you to inscribe on my ring a sentence that makes me happy when i'm sad, and sad when i'm happy. you have one month, else i hall punish you and your people"

so the wise old man, (i think i forgot to say he was wise, well, he is), trots off.

a month later he returns with the ring, duly inscribed. the king ready to lambast whatever is written, calls his advisors round and reads out loud
"this, too, will pass" (doesn't sound so good in translation)

the king thinks about it, nods, and lets the man go.

what does this have to do with poker?

well, after about a month of not taking it seriously, and barely playing, dropping about £100 in the process, i have decided to return with some ground rules.

no playing unless i want to. not just because i am bored. PATIENCE is going to be my main aim.

no tilting. thinking about the long run, is the best way to avoid tilt.
whenever things are going bad, just think, this moment, too, like every other moment ever to have been, will pass. and voila (pardon my french), no more tilt.

gonna hit some mtt's and $1/2 6 seater cash on pokerstars with $100 i still have in there. though there is the problem of no rakeback. gonna get to 2000 FPPs and get a book.

betfair sill won't run properly for me, eating my processor like there's no tomorrow.
interpoker suck balls.
mansion - i hate 10 seaters, will try to win some hu stts
party - no rakeback. still have about $30 in there worth doing something with

maybe open a new account somewhere...will have to some research...

been a month

been ok live, some funny tournaments i been playing in.

been losing pretty evenly on all sites in the past month.

only done a small deposit, left with about $30 in each of party/stars/mansion

pretty bored with poker, losing patience and therefore losing.

i think the two things that you need mots for poker is patience and patience. once this is mastered, learn to play in position = winning player.

so pretty annoyed with poker atm.
playing live is still a laugh, and the last time i went to a double chance i was playing looser than pari's hilton's inhibitions and more aggressive than a giant panda watching some porn

1st hand i get all in on the turn with 98s on a 764 board with the 7 and 6 of my suit, of course i miss my 18 outs twice, and villains 99 takes the pot.
few hands later i double up, then lose a few chips, then double up with perficly timed bullets. i was back to my starting stack of 2.5k and raise in ep to 300 (3bb), ad donkey on bb reraises to 2k with AK. THANKS.

later on, after being in complete control, raise utg with A10, and only the bb calls. 10 high flop, i bet, SHE raises, i push, she calls with AQ. turn is a Q. left me with about 1k, and im out next hand. but it was fun!

need to find a way to make online poker fun. i guess that just involves winning, gonna hit some mtt's. but need to play at least £20 ones. that requires more money in my account than i care to deposit....hmmm......

think ill take a holiday
