1st Time to Europe for 2nd Player Coming to CAPT Seefeld with Us

The past month has been unbelievable for me poker wise. Prior to December, I hadn't really played much poker since my pathetic showing at the WSOP. I feel like that time off from the game got me rejuvenated and excited to play. While the results have been there, I am still noticing a lot of leaks in my game. Most of the leaks I am noticing deal with late game play, but I do feel like I am slowly correcting them.

One of my many New Years Resolutions was to play more live poker. I live about ten minutes from Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh so it shouldn't be too hard to accomplish it. So far I have played three live tournaments, all of which were the Saturday Deepstack tournaments. I've cashed in one of the three tournaments, taking 4th for about $1,700. And while I think I have played well, the two times I have been eliminated have been on river bluffs that I know I shouldn't be making against live players. The play is pretty bad and all I have to do is play solid poker and the results will come.

Coming from an online poker background, I find it extremely hard to not get bored when playing live. Folding for an hour and the obnoxious player tanks just frustrate me to no end. This is a leak I am going to fix. To fix this, I want to make sure I am always mentally prepared for the live grind. Getting a good nights sleep and exercising in the morning will be my routine from here on out. Anyone have any advice on how not to punt during a live tournament?

Now to the good news...

I was fortunate enough to win an online satellite to the CAPT Main Event in Seefeld, Austria. This is the second live satellite I have won and this will be my first time ever traveling to Europe. The event is a €2,160 buyin with €800,000 guaranteed on February 25th. As of now, I don't know the structure of the tournament, but I do know that players get a 50k starting stack, so I have to imagine the structure is pretty good. My plan is to travel around Austria and possibly Germany while I am there. I want to take full advantage of this opportunity because I know this may be the only time I ever get to be in Europe.

I look forward to sharing my experiences with you guys.
