May was defiantly my toughest month so far, igot off to a slow start with both volume and results, and i wasn't working as hard off the tables reviewing etc,
i started to review my hand histories and tbh i was happy enough with how i was playing and was genuinely getting unlucky at key points in the game,(not that i wasn't sucking out my own fair share) just when it got down to 12/13 players left i was loosing flips and running into big hands where another day i win the race and have a big stack going onto the final table.
Another reason for the lack of volume is that I'm still only 6/7 tabling,whenever i move up to 9/10 i feel out my comfort zone and start to make unforced errors, that's another thing i will be working on improving, i also have been trying out some new times for playin, since i'm in the eurozone i've been playing through the night, so i've been trying playing more normal times, but unfortunatly the games just dont run enough during the day my time so i guess i'll have to go back to playin more at nighttime.
then for whatever reason in the latter half of the month i started tilting over beats i was getting, when kings loose to jacks I'd spend the next 10 Min's bitching bout it when i have other games i need to concentrate on, before i just got on with it cause i know on another table i prob just cracked aces with my J7!!so that's something i defiantly need to eradicate.
another problem creeping into my game is my concentration, I've started to let my mind wander and on a number of occasions found myself looking at twitter or facebook when I'm playing or just thinking bout random shit that's nothing to do with the games I'm playing.
games played 1026
on a positive note since Ive been bitching for the last rant! after all i did make a profit!!
i booked my flights to Vegas to learn from the main men nick, Aaron and bodeye, and also there will be a bunch of students there I'm looking forward to meeting, I'm flying out the 13th till the 24Th June and am pretty excited bout the trip, and tbh a bit nervous, theres some pretty high standards that have to be met out there.
i got a new 17" laptop yesterday for the trip, took me half the day to get it set up yesterday, so I'll be playing my games on that for the next few weeks to get used to it before i go, that's all for now gl everyone,
oh yeah, big congrats to the foxyshazam who took down back to back $36 180 mans last night, some achievement mate well done
Intense and emotional in Vegas
