Poker and My Life, How Texas Holdem has helped me!


shuffle up and deal

WOW, so finally doing a post about all the things I think about when learning and playing. Well, January was an interesting month, finally decided that I didnt know all I thought I knew. Around the 20th I decided I would actually read more of the info under the PSO menu, you know the one to the left of the screen. The one some of us,,,,,,,, me......., ignored, ......well i started using some of the free info. I figure if I am going to make a living a playing cards, I better learn as much as I can. And you know what my game has improved. Its amazing but if you just listen to that little voice, you know the one that knows its a bad move and you make it anyway, if you listen to that little voice, you will do better period. And when you fold that hand you had no business with in the first place  and the other player flashes 2/8off suit just remember his time is coming. lol.
 So, I would like to introduce myself, My name is James Morris, I live in a rural area about 30 miles northeast of Raleigh, NC. I have had a bad run, not in cards but just life in general over the last 18 months, that is how I ended up here. You know when they say happiness is bliss, well most of us dont know what bliss means. I think I have found out what bliss means and cant wait to get back  there. lol. You see I was just a naive country boy who thought he was smart atleast smart in my circle of friends. lol. So over the last year and a half, my best friend died, my father and I havent talked in a year, and I have closed my business. So I will go into a little detail about each one, just a little background info.  
My best friend was Garry, and Garry and me had drifted apart as we have gotten older (i am fixing to be 38 on the first of feb) but he was a true friend, and boy did he have a lot of friends. He was such a good friend, their where people I met at the funeral that I had never met before that considered Garry their best friend, it was kind of shocking. He was truly an original. We had been friends since 1989 and the first person I knew that was my age that died....... went through the "we are just animals here"  phase. but onward.  
I closed my business..... not a big deal to some of you, just the problem there was it was actually a good business. But, there is always a but, I started a business that was beyond me. And when your not use to making money guess what?.... you dont make money, spend it..........we had grossed over 4 mil in two years, but heck we were giving away the product and my bankroll was going south and I didnt know it. So, I am going to make my second million playing Texas Holdem.......
Me and Dad dont talk,........never work with family......when i closed the business, my dad had been an employee, now we dont speak, small minded to the end.......I probably will not have a conversation with him before he passes.......his health is not to good......but anyway, i can tell you more if you want to know. PSO game starting got to go
