SOooooo Vegas is BRUTAL! While it has been an amazing experience so far, it’s been one expensive roller coaster ride! These past few weeks have been a serious test of my discipline and mental fortitude, more than my poker skills. While the poker tables have given my there share of challenges, I still feel like I’m playing well and just running bad. I’m not so arrogant to say I haven’t made mistakes, but I’m constantly working on those errors and I know that when the cards turn in my favor and I’m on my A game, big things are gonna happen. Thats poker, that’s variance, that’s life lol. No, the real challenges have been off the felt. Vegas has been even more difficult to stay on track than I thought it would. Some relationship issues, living situation problems, too many drinks, some bad influences, and some deep run busts that tilted me enough to hit table games, have all effected my training and my poker. While I know that sounds like alot, I’m being a little dramatic( shocker lol) to really drive the point home and make myself feel bad enough to be sure not to let any of it happen again. And if you heard or saw some of the REAL sob stories here, you would find out like I am, that what I’ve done is tame and nothing compared to it lol

“You always want to protect the thing that allows you to do what you do. In this case, my “thing” to protect is my training. Regardless of what time zone I’m in, or getting pulled in a thousand different directions or how little sleep I’ve gotten – I’ll always find a way to train, get after it and push thru. Training is my anchor – it centers me and allows me to then work a full 12-14 day of business. Find your anchor. Protect your anchor.”
