Taking poker more serious
Two tables now. Advancing. Everything thanks to our own poker material. I love the irony of me not really watching videos closely or even creating a poker blog, when I work for PokerStrategy.com and tell everyone else to do it. Guess what! I've done it! I got a poker blog and I've even set up some nice goals for myself. It feels good to have things on paper. I CAN do this.
Although my graph for March 2011 looks terrible. A lot of bad beats followed by tilt -> bad play. Although after realizing I played like an idiot, I have taken some serious time to watch videos and stuff. Stopping the madness.
Storåkers first show is on Wed. the 16th!
On Wednesday Johan will have his first show, where he will be playing poker, talking live with the community as well as discussing different interesting topics with a secret guest. 20:30 CET it will start, and you can read more here or check out the coaching here!
Okay, enough being Mr. salesman pro. I've started editing some of the videos Johan has sent to me. I messed up the quality of the first one, although it's still okay. Next one will have the original quality, I promise! :)
It's actually quite exciting working with someone so bright. Someone that can live out of poker totally. It is not an easy thing. This is something I admire. Maybe one day I will be able to as well. Not that I want to, 'cause I would go nuts if I didn't have a job to go to every day (yes, I'm serious).
Fun things every day.
Yesterday, we were playing "Werewolf" (Info), something similar to the party game, Mafia (Wiki). It was me, Vlada, Håkan and the Chinese gang. I was the first one to be voted for execution... everyone ALWAYS thinks I'm the villain. Well... I was.
Last Saturday we had a carnival party in La Linea. Crazy. Håkan got his first "Spanish shitface-experience". Interesting, now I know how Håkan is when he is drunk. Pretty wild for a polite Swedish guy.
Last Friday I first had dinner with some old friends, to later join up with the others at my place, playing a home game of Poker. Of course the fishes, Quisqueya and Håkan won a lot. Too bad Håkan turned a better straight than I flopped. Gah, shit happens.
This week we will probably have a Rock Band evening. The usual people are invited + some new faces. It will be fun. Can't wait.
Life is pretty nice right now, even though I'm on antibiotics and have to stay sober for the rest of the month.
See you in the next blog entry!
