Growing to a New

By: *MaXiNoUt* @ 09:40 (EDT) / 278 / Comment ( 0 )

  Hello all, first off please realize i'm terrible at 'blogs' as i've never done one and, barely know what they mean

As i've been playing poker for a few years i've been having trouble knowing when to play.  With that being said i'm reffering to how im feeling in regards to my patience level.  If im calm, cool, and collective i can usually do ok.  If not i find my 'man hood' tingling and my game play is going on a hard core downslide.  Having anallized my own personal, im hoping and aiming to 'grow to a new'.

With the above being said, i also realize my game play needs to be adjusted.  I seem to play (most of the time) cash games the way i would mtt's.  I guess when one gets accustomed to play a certain way its awfully hard to alter it, but most certainly important in doing (playing tight and showing once in awhile to set up a bluff down the road, and vice versa).

Instead of sprinting, im thinking i will grow to a new and go slow and steady  Maybe
