I've really been slacking on the poker front the past couple weeks. As of writing this I'm at 883,500 VPPs which puts me 4,100, or 1.5 days ahead of pace. With two holidays, New Years Eve, a round trip to Boston, and a trip to the Bahamas all within the next 45 days, I really need to get it in gear. This means playing a minimal amount of pool over that time. Ideally, I'd like to be a week ahead of pace going into my Boston trip for Christmas. In order to get there I need to play about an extra 400 hands a day which is an extra hour or so. I think that's doable. Really it has to be done, I don't have a choice at this point.
Things have really turned around since my last blog entry. I'm on about a 500 big bet, 35K upswing, very similar to my last two months. More importantly I'm playing very good poker right now, perhaps the best all year. I took two days off this past weekend, which I believe is my longest stretch without poker in 6 years and it helped refocus me.
