The trials and tribulations of learning this game


A little over a month now

It's been a little over a month since my last entry. Lazy, no I think not. I've been reading books and trying new methods on free play. The last advice I got was to be patient. I have to admit, it's really hard to be patient when you have a pair of aces, play them and get a bad beat with three of a kind on the river. Deuces to boot! My play money bank roll is improving and I've even placed second in a few tournaments. The next step for me is joining a discussion group on poker, I think. It's a great past time and I love yukin' it up with the group. The next question I'm going to have to answer is when will I tink I'm good enough to start playing with my own money? Will I have enough confidence to go deep in a game? Should I limit the types of games I play in? Ring games or tournies? So many questions and so few answers at the moment. Right now I see a lot of practice in my future!
