If you’ve read yesterday’s post about being stuck in low limit nirvana, you know how I’m currently feeling when it comes to my game online. With the exception of some good games, mostly the DADI and WWdN tourneys when I find the time to play in them, the games are getting old. It’s the same thing over and over again – play good poker, wait for “monsters” or potential monsters, get paid of sometimes, get kicked in the junk big time the other times (I realize that this is just the way it is, the life of a grinder…and if you can’t deal with it, you shouldn’t be playing (so much), but it still makes you wonder sometimes…).

So I guess some change is in order…one way or another…or poker won’t be fun anymore…hmm sounds strange, after all I’m in it for the money…and not mainly for the fun…but still…the game itself used to be reward enough, nowadays it isn’t anymore…game + winning = money in the (virtual) pocket + satisfaction is what it comes down to. So, I’ll have to do something:

“Revised master-plan” (old saying or better put the loose translation of it, as I’m not sure if there’s a similar saying in the english speaking world: “If you’ve got no goals, you can’t reach any!” So a plan I shall have!):

1. Pad roll to accomodate going up to the .50/1 level asap — Best chances to achieve this goal is to combine some juicy SnGs with fishy ring games! Go find ’em, when you play!

2. Keep book! Scouting before playing at a new level isn’t a bad thing! These notes will help you in the long run!

3. Avoid sharks, find the fish…pound on them!

4. Hit and run if necessary!

5. If the run at the .50/1 level is successfull, remain calm and pad the roll…you can always move up in due time. If the run isn’t going well, don’t be ashamed to step down a level again!

That about sums it up…let’s see if I can make it happen…

Sidenote: There’s finally going to be the next home game…wednesday next week is the time, NL HE tourney is the game…and I’m already excited…finally a chance to sling real chips again…and we’ll play with a copag four coulour deck for the first time, too…exciting!
