End to a Frustrating February

At first glance it looks like a pretty good month:

But the reality is:

I went through a similar stretch to this about two years ago, even worse if I remember right so it's just a matter of playing through it.  On the bright side, I'm beating 10/20 for a change!

Besides being frustrated, it's been a pretty perplexing start to the year for me.  I've been really unmotivated and haven't been playing a lot of hands.  The perplexing part is that I don't feel like I've played well overall but I also don't feel like I've run well and somehow I'm at 1.34 BB/100 after my first 50K hands.  That scares me to some degree because if my sense that I've played poorly is correct, I could be in a for an extended downswing if I don't get my game in gear quickly.

I'm still in Bariloche (Patagonia) and will be here for another couple weeks.  Then it's back the US to do taxes and my annual Vegas trip with friends and then it'll be off again in early April to play.  I still haven't decided whether I'm going for SNE, I'm pretty far behind pace at this point and not sure I could finish before September without playing some insane hours which I really don't want to do.  But it's also possible I make an extra trip this year and finish in December.

And before I forget since I've promised my friend I'd give him a shout out here.  To anyone that sports bet I highly recommend signing up for the service below.  Anthony is possibly the best unknown NBA handicapper in the world.  I don't say that lightly, I've followed dozens of handicappers, tracked hundreds of others and have been sports betting seriously for five years now.

And he's being tracked by a reputable independent monitor here:!AK0XvD7fyoQ3Q7M&

Good luck at the tables everyone.
