The ramblings and mumblings of a wannabe poker pro

Why Do I Play?

In response to my previous post, I had some thought and reminded myself why I play poker.

I don’t play for the fun of it, or because I’m bored, or because I get pleasure out of getting lucky, I play to build my bankroll, I play for money, I play to improve my game and most of all I play because I intend to be one of the worlds best and succeed in the WSOP, this is more then a game for me!

So after giving myself the 3rd degree, I realized why I’ve been lacking consistency and not making much progress. I had forgotten why I’m doing all this, and had become complacent, not staying as sharp as I have been and made some stupid plays, trying to justify them within the situation.

I’m going to try and keep this in mind when I feel my play starts to wonder from where it should.

  1. Very well thought out I must say and totally correct.

    Like all things we must work hard, then harder and then a bit more if we want to achieve our goals.

    Good luck on your way to stardom and I hope to see you suceed in the WSOP

  2. Thank you.

    Hope to see you at the WSOP tables, I’d like to make an appearance in 2009, but have to step up a hell of a way first.
