My Poker Life


First Day of the March Run

Well I am really not very pleased with my performace today for the first day.  While I only had time to play the 8pm tourney, it started out bad and didn't improve much.  I ended up finishing in 498 out of 15xx.  Today was just an example of no matter what cards I got, they just were not quite good enough.  Every hand that could beat what I had was out there and playing for all it was worth.  I really had hoped to keep all my tourneys this month with a 100 or better placing, but what can you do.

I do feel that I never really got into the zone this touney, and felt distracted.  Not sure what had my mind busy, but I better find a better way of focusing myself or this will be only the first of many poor out comes, I know that much.

So I will watch a few poker related videos tonight and hopefully get my game face on for tomorrow nights tourney.  I feel slightly handicapped as 3 days out fo the week I only have time for 1 tourney in the evening.  This will put alot of pressure on me on this thurs and the weekend where I will need to play multiple tourneys and do well in them if I want to have a real shot at the money for this month.

Considering I am not feeling very focused I think I will skip playing at the cash tables today and conserve my very limited bankroll for when I am more focused.  Prior to this month I was able to rack up a $1.58 for my tourney placing's.  LOL, yea I know, that doesn't sound like much ..........and it is not really, but it is at least something and enough to play the .01/.02 tables and try to build up a bankroll and make a few FFP's ...... I hope.  The down side to such a low bankroll is that if I should lose it all it will severly hamper my chances of making the FFP for the month and I will be forced to settle for what I can make in the whitstar ranking. 

Well tomorrow is another day, time to do some studing.
