10/4/09 Jewish high holidays, family visiting and the need for some serious teeth work have stopped me from playing. I figure i'll get back in the game during the wsop event here on the 16th.

9/15/09 I'm on my way to the Horseshoe with my mind refocused. I've been off to a slow start but you are only considered a .300 hitter after a season.
9/10/09 No matter what I tried I couldn't get things going this week. Tuesday +100, Wed -500, Thurs -300. My focus was horrible. We'll see if I can refocus for Fridays session.
I decided to take the night off tonight. The last thing that I want to do is play while my head isn't fully in the game. I think it was Mike Caro that wrote about a concept that simply put states that there is a point when you are down that you feel dulled to being down even more. I feel like this week I fell into that trap. I could have saved some money but I made some bad calls knowing I was beat. Lessons from this week include: When you are behind and the odds don't dictate a call, fold. Sometimes staying at home is the most profitable move especially when you have other things on your mind. Stay focused or go home. Let's see what next week brings.
Bankroll - $2000
Well I guess I was posting wrong. Instead of making a new blog I kept editing the old one. First time blogging sorry.
Week two saw me increasing volume. I ended up logging about 30 hours in 4 days. I increased my roll up to $2700. So next week when I sit down I will only be risking 18.5% of my BR. That is a hell of a lot better than risking the 100% of my BR I did on day one of this challenge. The funny point of the week was on Thursday when I was seated next to an Asian gentleman who whenever he was in a pot would mumble "monkey monkey monkey..." under his breath till the flop came out and then proceed to yell "winner winner chicken dinner" when he won. I know it was very cliché but it made me laugh.
So far so good.
