Could and Should Do Better!

Well, it’s coming up to the end of July now and to be honest I really could do with seeing the back of it from a poker perspective. I’ve performed pretty badly online (yes, what’s new I suppose?) I have made a profit so far but that’s not the point. The point is my hourly rate probably equals that of someone in the third world who picks peanuts out of shit for a living – and that’s just not good enough!

I have been looking at my stats and figures for the past few months and I have just realised I haven’t played live for 6 weeks. That’s probably the longest I have gone since I discovered the game in back 2002. There are many reasons for this including principally a lack of form, the quality of the games on offer at my local casino, increased recent expenditure off the poker table, which is draining the bank roll and one main reason…. I just can’t be arsed to drive the 22 miles there and 22 miles back. I haven’t really missed it to be honest but I should make the effort to go more often, so I’ll probably make a visit next week sometime. Poker just isn’t the same on-line and I really should be keeping my eye in as I may play a few events at the upcoming Luton and Sheffield festivals and I don’t want to go into those looking like a frail internet newbie.

The WSOP goes on (without me) :-( but I was pleased to see John Gale win a bangle this time around especially after his agonising second place last year. It seems there is some British form emerging just prior to the main event – let’s hope we can get a British World Champion – good luck fellas!
