Missing In Action

Yes, it has been a while since I have posted. My self imposed leave from online poker is pretty much still in effect, as I have managed to put my bankroll on Full Tilt below $100, and I sit at a mere $16 on PokerStars. I have played a couple of SNGs, with very limited success, but decided last Friday to play a $3 MTT, which I finished a fine 14th place out of 382 for a $12 profit.

So what have I been doing, you may ask yourself, or maybe not, I would not be surprise if anyone is even bother to read anymore. It seems like I am not the only person that has gone missing as far as Poker Blogging, with even those that still do blog not blogging as often or as much. Not sure if it just another let down period after the BBT5, or maybe with everything else going on that the Poker Bloggers are just moving on into other stages in their lives.

At least with me, my family has continued to be a far more encompassing part of my time. My daughter K is now 19 months old, and really its not just changing some diapers, keeping her fed, and watching her sleep anymore. All the interaction that I do with her keeps me so busy that by the time she is ready for bed, I am ready to get the other things I need to have done with/for my wife and or myself.

Does this mean the end of this blog? Or me playing poker? NO! It is just a shift in priorities for now. I am actually working on my game, but on the learning side from reading books instead of playing currently. I feel that I had been running bad to a point where I was letting it affect my play. Was I actually runnding bad, or playing bad? Probably a little of both. So I am going to work on my game. Do I still have big goals in mind? YES! I hope to play in the 2011 WSOP. I will be a part of a 20 person tournament series again that the winner plays in the Main Event (I actually finished 4th last year, after winning the 1st tournament I just played badly for a couple afterwards). So there is always that, or trying to win myself a seat again for a $1,500 Event. I also plan to play at either the Harrah's or Ceasers Atlantic City WSOP Circuit Event (most likely an event that is the day before/after the ladies event, so the wife and I can make a weekend out of it).

So I hope to be playing more soon, but will likely be "starting anew" as far as my bankroll, and following proper bankroll startagies, so it is unlikely I will be playing many of the Blogger tournaments for a while, until I build back up the bankroll and feel I am playing a better game.

Until my next updated, I hope you all do well on the felt and in all you do!

This 're-build' should make for some fantastic reading down the road!

I for one can't wait.

Run good, play better!
