I am a Weak, Weak Man

So I had a moment of weakness last night and played some 20/40. 45 minutes later and $1,200 poorer, I completely cashed out of all my online poker accounts, as I obviously can't be trusted at the moment.

Poker is interesting. There's such a small, small gap between winning and losing, yet the key to winning is to consistently put yourself on the right side of that gap. Let even one tiny cog slip a bit and you're no longer playing winning poker. Let two tiny cogs slip a bit and you're playing losing poker. Let three cogs slip a bit, and, well...

I'm definitely into three cog territory at the moment. Hell, maybe even four or five cog.

More on this soon, likely tomorrow, when I'm bored out of my skull at work and have time to wax eloquent.

I'll miss your analysis and humor, but will keep checking back for the white smoke that signals your return.

A break is always good, but I think we both know that any losses will come back. Any swing is only temporary for a solid player.

I don't believe Scurvy will take a break from blogging.

$1200 at 20/40 is only 30BB.. I regularly lose 30BB in a single hand! Don't be such a wimp :)
