So it's been about 6 weeks since this thread came into existence , and I've not really updated this as much as I first expected which is probably actually a good thing as I means there has been no roller-coaster of ups & downs to report which at this moment in time the key focus needs to be avoiding the pitfalls of another insane irrational experience.
Poker wise , I've been focusing solely on playing my backed stake on Pokerstars (mostly $5.50 & under) and tuning my brain into playing my best game possible which can sometimes be hard to gauge when playing MTTs with 1000's of runners as the variance is just so crazy even for winning players.
I did mention in an earlier post that I wasn't going to be making any big purchases in the near future or going on holiday , but I decided that an investment in a reasonable desktop computer was of use if I really wanted to build up my ability to play poker for hopefully a second income because playing more than 4 tables on a laptop is not ideal , and playing across several sites at the same time is not really feasible if want to see the action on every table.
So I see this as much like my purchase of a bike as a total net positive , with the bike I save £60 a month on a bus pass to get to work without even including the late shifts i'd need to pay for a taxi plus I get the health benefits of riding about 8 miles 5 days a week so in like 3 months the investment will be like financial net positive , likewise the desktop computer encourages me to sit up in a better posture and therefore better than lazying on the couch with a laptop health wise and always it has to be better for my poker game if I can see all the action that is taking place.
See as many of you as possible in the home game on Wednesday
