How my Game is Improving

This is about how I am improving my game or hope I am

So I thought I was done with talking about my game in May, but I feel that there is just a couple more things to add to it.

To start off with: The Title: "A Nit Playing Poker".  I recieved many comments from poker friends thinking that I was calling myself a NIT.  Well I was not.  I do not think of myself as that type of player. I used to be, but then most new players are until they learn how to play the game and all the strategies within the game.  The reason I used the term in my title was because players that I was out playing, were calling me a NIT.  And I take pride that my quality of playing now gets people to that point that they need to start call me names. 

There are still many weak areas in my game that I still need to work on, change, and improve on.  I am not a very good 'Cash/Zoom' game player and I really need to work on this.  All these training sessions are helping, but I need to get into them more and start playing at higher levels.

Killer instinct.  I really need to work on this in poker Tournaments.  I'm a very soft heart person, and when I am playing against friends, people I know, I find it really hard to knock them out and I feel bad when I do.  This is part of the game and I know they will not hate me if I do knock them out, at least, not too and not for too long of a period. 

So, the rest of the month did not go as I had planned.  I had planned on getting into the last Storm game of the month, but I was just too tired after working Weekend Night Shifts.  I did not wake up it time for it.  Thank God I did not pre Reg for it.  During the week, I did get into a couple of low entery fee tourneys.  Did ok, placed in the money and had fun trying a few different plays and going for hands that I would not normally go for. 

This month, what do I have in store for it?

This month we have the PSO Series of Poker and I really want to do well in it. However, so far the Poker Gods are not in my corner.  It has been a real struggle so far and thourgh out most of the games, I have been getting real crap hands one after another.  Hands so bad that if I made a pair, it was the lowest pair possible or for the most part, no pairs.  Not to say all the games have been like that, I have twice, finished in the payout and my highest finish was 8th.  And Today, I got knocked out holding pocket Aces and the Villian holding pair of 6's.  Flop gave 10,5,5 o. Turn gave a 7 and the river gave the villian that 6 he needed. 

To say that I was a little titled after that is to put it mildly.  But that is poker isn't it.

Have good games everyone.
