Taking the Next Step




"I Run So Bad"

If you talk to any poker player they usually have one thing in common, they all think they are extremely unlucky. I'm guilty of this train of thought but instead of accepting this as true, from now on I will be finding solutions of why I am getting unlucky. Coaching, hand history reviews, and training videos will be a part of my routine from here on out. The simple reason being: how can I blame losing stretches on being unlucky if I am not going to put in the work to improve?

The High Five Series

Americas Card Room hosted their High Five series this past week and it was extremely fun. I had some deep runs but nothing to write home about. I won four seats to the Main Event $420,000 GTD, but I was unable to get anything going in it.

Live Poker

Unfortunalty I was unable to play the Deepstack at Rivers Casino on Saturday this week because we had a crazy snow storm here in Pittsburgh. Rather than risk my life trying to get to the casino where probably only 20 other players would show up, I decided to stay home and grind online. This coming weekend is the $525 monthly Deepstack and I will be partaking in that if weather permits.


Part of improving in poker involves surrounding yourself with the right people. I have decided to get coaching from one of the best crushers on the US sites. Even though I have played for many years, I have never had a one on one coaching session. If successful, I want to make it a bi weekly thing. Not only for my poker game but also my mental game.

Carbon Poker

Somewhere along the line Carbon Poker became soft again. For the longest time it was the hardest site in the US. Cashouts seem to have improved and with ACR becoming more difficult, I will be moving a lot of my action over to Carbon.

Flight is Booked

Last night I booked my trip to the CAPT tournament in Austria. I will be flying from Pittsburgh > Chicago > Zurich, Switzerland on February 23rd. From Zurich, I will be taking a bus to Innsbruck, Austria. I will make sure to take a ton of pictures and videos to post in the blog and on social media.

Thanks for reading.

Stay Positive.
