I have been quite on poker for awhile. I do have a few things though, so I will try and bang some of them out here.
First is December results. I didn’t really play any cash games, and no SnGs until later in the month. The results however, not bad:
|In The Money:||5||45.45%|
|Return on Investment:||26.45%|
I have much more data for January, but the month is not over. So far it is near break even after clawing back from a horrible start to the New Year.
My folks gave me two poker books for Christmas. _Super System 2_ by Doyle Brunson, et al. I have yet to open it- daunting to say the least; and _An on the River_ by Barry Greenstein, which is a very quick read and quite informative. Here is my short review:
Mr. Greenstein is obviously very intelligent and obviously a great poker player. However, he is not a great author, adequate for sure- but not great The book is not hard to read, it is just a bit jarring. The physical quality itself is amazing, every page has color photos on photo quality paper. There is a tremendous amount of insight into money management, time management, relationships, table image and “outside the math” areas of poker playing. I do recommend it as a fun and informative read. Absorb the sights of the pages, that alone is worth a few hours of your time. It might not make your play your individual sessions any better, but taking his advise in the long term might improve your game.
OK, I have delayed packing long enough. I need to get that and the dishes done before I try and get some sleep. Take care my fair readers.
