March, WSOP and Vegas Preparation

Well the less said about March, the better. It was a terrible month at the tables for me and pretty much the worst of my poker career. I certainly ran bad and also got coolered in a lot of spots but my play was atrocious. I called in terrible spots, used very little game selection and generally was just awful.

With April, however, comes fresh optimism and a new focus. In the first three days of the month I have managed to put in 22k hands. That type of volume is unheard of for me and I have realized that it really is what I should be doing all the time. The results were a little rough on the first day but the last two days, things have been getting back to normal and I have won at a decent rate. Its hard to say that I am out of the woods just yet as I need to take it a day at a time. I do feel calmer and more relaxed at the tables so hopefully the long corner has been turned.

On a more positive note, my WSOP shares have all sold out. I will be playing the 7 WSOP events I previously spoke about and now also the Main Event. Playing the Main Event has always been a goal of mine and having the ability to play it will fulfill one of my long standing poker goals. I feel I need to say thank you to a lot of my friends in the poker world, they have all bought small pieces of me and hopefully I will be able to reward them with success and at the very least a solid sweat. I will be updating twitter throughout the event and will do my best to update at every break.

Now that we are two months away from the Series, I am starting to get myself mentally and physically ready. For the next 60 days I am going to be pretty strict with what I eat and am also going to try to spend at least one session a day on the treadmill. I found that I got fatigued last summer late in the day and I want to do everything I can do stop that this summer. Hopefully by preparing myself now, I will see the results later in the summer.

Back to the grind....
