Pickin it back up

Hey, its been awhile since my last post and thats mostly due to my getting killed during the beginning of the month, and some of the motivation getting slashed... obviously the flip side to that is this post comes with some run good, and I've turned the month around a bit...

The staking side of things hasn't really flipped, and the Pokerstars VIP changes were a pretty significant let down, so in light of the adjustments I'm still not 100% certain as to what my goals will be stepping into 2011. One of my business partners had to step out which was obviously for the worse, but I've worked out a system that seems to be getting the job done... I'll be moving back to BC in January which I'm pretty stoked about, still have no clue where I'm gonna live permanently but I'll stay with my brother till I get it figured out...

As far as regulars are concerned, people seem to be getting a lot better... the dynamics with a lot of players are getting a bit deeper, which makes for better poker and tougher swings... but nose to the grind stone, coz I aint workin at McDicks..

Keep going...

The year is coming to a close, and its getting pretty easy to just call it a good year and throw in the towel. Pushing through and pounding volume is pretty close to one of the last things I want to do, but maintaining the pace I've been on (however sluggish) is the least I can do as I close out this year... November was a disappointment monetarily as per expectation, but hopefully I'm able to pick it up a little in December, rest up a little bit and prepare myself to hit the ground running in January. I have a number of personal things to take care of throughout December which will distract me from poker, but to have a worse mo/ in terms of volume than November won't be acceptable.

Staking went about as badly as it could have, and on the month I may have only had a $1500 month including poker, (about -$4,000) so hopefully I run better there this month :)

Goals for December: Play at least 1k games, get the Supernova 2x Milestone and the rest of the 4k bonus (about 40k FPP's from where I'm at now)
