So I thought I would do something fun for all Rexaments (people who read rex55's blog :)
Now that Ftops is winding down, it will free up some time for me and I can spend some more time in the forums, chatroom, studying, coaching and relaxing. I made 2 deep runs in this year's ftops events, but unfortunately no final tables yet- (still 2 more events tomrrow). I was happy with how I played overall and felt really good about my game during the $100r PLO event today...Got really lucky to hit quad Kings into top set of Aces early on in the tourney, so I felt like I was on borrowed time... but just couldn't get the races to fall my way deep when it counted.. busted 32nd, one better than my 33rd place finish in the $200 ftops turbo.
Overall it has been a profitable ftops, but the gold jersey still eludes me...in my opinion, its just a matter of time though.
So now what fun did I have in store exactly? Well I'm a blog junkie. As much as I like to blog myself, I love reading blogs. However, lately I have been thirsting for some good blog reading material and not finding much. Sure I have my favorite bloggers, but they don't post very often...so there are extended gaps where my blog addiction is deprived. So I thought I would come up with a cool contest that would quench my thirst to read blogs, as well as push my readers to write/reflect/inspire.
SO here are the contest rules:
*I want you to post a blog on the following topic:
"What holds you back from being a better poker player than you are today? What are your shortcomings and weaknesses?"
*The blog has to be posted on PokerCurious. So all readers who have not yet created their free account.. what are you waiting for?
*You have one week, after which time I will reply to the question myself in a blog and then post the winner of the contest, who I will choose based on honesty, introspection, creativity and content. You don't have to be a great writer to win this contest. I won't be turned off by poor grammer/spelling (tho i do encourage proofreading:)
*The PRIZE: One hour of free poker coaching with me, worth $150. After the coaching session I will assess your level of play and buy you into an online tournament.
Ultimately I think it is important to be honest to ourselves about our present skillset and the shortcomings/weaknesses that hold us back from becoming better. I visit these depths often.. I now invite you to share yours with me....and I look forward to reading your story.
