Short and Sweet

I've been easing back into the 20/40 LHE trenches, with pretty good results so far. The drill of late has been to play one table, for exactly thirty minutes a session, and to concentrate fully and not open any other windows, or distract myself with any other work or browsing or baseball scores or porn or anything else.

The 30 minute time limit/session is pretty arbitrary but it's a nice change of pace, as I basically just focus on playing as well as I can, for the time I have, and then closing out the table, no matter whether I'm stuck or flush with profits, getting up, and doing something else for awhile.

Yes, indeed, this flies in the face of my recent embracing of the poker hobbyist mentality, as far as playing mid/high limits. All I can say is that I'm a stubborn monkey sometimes, and that I'm still grinding out bonuses and profits at much lower limits in the majority of the time I've been playing of late.

Still lugging much decomposed granite gravel around the homestead, slowly working down Mt. Granite from a massive towering heap in my driveway, where the landscape supply people dumped it, to a mere bump. This should be pretty much it, though, as far as major outdoor landscaping projects. That leaves the kitchen and bathrooms to remodel and then, wonder of wonders, most of what we want to upgrade at Casa Scurvy will be finished with.

Welcome to my world of exciting 1-table mid limit. Although I normally play doing ten other things, trying to simulate 10-tabling. Always nice to have a change of pace, though.

everytime I try to take a different approach and play *1* table instead of 8-10 I find my hand sneaking over to the sit&go section adding more games.

It only takes about 5 minutes for my damn hand to figure it out.

Good strategy, I like it...Um, no porn?

Let's be reasonable.
