xflixx' Week #27 - Poker Energy Levels

By: PSO-xflixx @ 03:38 (EDT) / 1701 / Comment ( 3 )

This week I couldn't really get a lot of volume in, life came in the way.

Appointments, errands, bike repairs, seeing doctors and stuff like that are things that do not only prevent me from physically playing poker but they are also the ones that are most likely to drain my mental powers to perform well at the tables. Don't even think about squeezing in a session between appointments or after a stressful day, in my experience those sessions never end well. I need positive energies to play good poker and those energies are of a very special consistence: It's the thrill of anticipation mixed with high efficiency brainpower. I usually feel if I have what it takes already right after getting up in the morning and appointments or errands usually block the brain compartments necessary to think poker.

Here are my weekly results:

VPP Counter 2013: 57.099

For the purpose of my business as a pro poker player I am still looking to improve in this area, maybe adjust the stakes I play to my daily energylevel. That however would have the drawback of me losing touch with my games when taking longer breaks.

Anyway, with that being the only real issue I keep thinking about life must be quite good. And it really is, I am working my way out of the recent bigger downer stack by stack and win back more confidence each day.

This morning my energylevel is quite good I'd say. It's 9AM, I have already worked out, reviewed yesterday's session, got only one hour of private coaching scheduled for today and I'm looking forward to my session later.

Let's get it on!
