Hey everyone whats a goin on?
Things are still wet here in the dirty south west. I know its amazing, it really is. We have had some sort of moisture for about the last seven days in a row. However it seems like the sun is finally coming out and going to shine today, and I'm hoping I can get a week of good weather in to get almost all of the harvesting done if not all of it. It's really tough however there are others in the province with much worse problems than me so I can't complain too much really. Also on the whole I think the entire province only has about 18% of harvest complete which is way behind but we are slightly ahead of that so something else I can't complain about. I will most likely be complaining when we get going again because it is definite go time now.
As always poker is an incredible journey for me. Since I had more time this week and with some new tricks in my bag after watching some videos on the easiest way to build your BR I started in on playing some 90 man KO SNGs on FTP. It is definitely a struggle that is for sure with those sometimes. Especially if you are not playing volume. Of course a started off down, but made a triumphant charge last weekend where I was making the top 4 in everyother one that I played in. Which was a nice change so that really bolstered my confidence and gave my FTP BR a nice little upswing. I still haven't won one which is frusterating but I haven't ran well within the final three or HU for that matter. Oh well I know I should be able to get it good eventually. It is also harder to win because the turbo structure makes for certain that you won't be very deep once you reach HU so it becomes more a matter of having a crucial hand hold up. Oh well if I could just stop my opponents from flopping sets against my overpairs I would be set for the week.
Also everyone should check out the new Kimberly Lansing interview. Its just a good interview with a rising media star in the poker industry. Another fairly long read that just came out is Bryce Paradis blog on Cardrunners. It is a huge four parter, followed up with a couple of video blogs the last couple days. However I think it is worth the time to read and reflect on as there are many good points to be taken from that blog. However I think Bryce and I share similar thought patterns in many ways so maybe thats why I relate more to his blog than maybe some of the rest of you will. I still recommend you check it out. For some reason it reminds me of this video. I really like it though it is an obvious level. Just to watch it and listen to the words and take it as it is, there is something very pure about it.
Also recently this song has came back into my life. I have liked it for a long time but its another one of those songs that can allow you to get lost in the moment of your life.
I'm also getting very good at setting up office chairs as my household has just bought another one. I recently set up my 27" LCD TV as a monitor and running it through my laptop which has been a definite advantage for any type of work I have been doing this week. Well hopefully next update I have some more good news for you guys and maybe some more wisdom to throw down.
