The 2nd Coming of the 200x Spin
Just to note, I'm gonna be putting up a copy of my posts here as well, it seems more "communicative" on tiltbook, with all y'all fellow poker players!
S'up! Blog posts have been pretty bad lately, nothing short of laziness on my part. I say this like its something that I should be doing, when the reality is that there isn't really a proper incentive to do so...
Well, the incentive really is the fact that I said that I would, and I think its important to be a man of your word, even if the word is to myself. I think this is one of the biggest concepts that can help people keep promises, even if its little things like being on time. The small things matter due to the Broken Window theory.*
Anyways, one thing that puts me off is the insane long posts that I do with multiple subjects. As nice as those are, it puts me off in a few ways, the main one being the feeling of upping myself with every post. So I'm gonna try shorter posts, with one subject only, and this should also help with the indexing of the content if I (or you guys) wanna refer back to it.
Another good reason to blog I want to mention is that its quite therapeutic to get your thoughts out there etc (and scientifically proven so), and since I play Spins that's not a bad idea!
*Read Freaknomics, its got some pretty cool interesting things like this explained!
The Second Coming
My last 200x Spin turned up early on a Sunday session, and this one early on in a Saturday session. Dunno why its always the weekend! But its kinda brutal to have to carry on playing after it especially after losing as it is hard to keep your mental strength intact. But I set myself some volume goals so it had to be done.
When it showed up 3 things came to mind;
- Play well! At least better then the last one and don't let the occasion get the better of you. No doubt the pressure got to me last time and I made some mistakes because of it.
- Am I against regs or randoms?
- Please don't let me get sucked out on for the win.
With the Pokerstars "Simple Theme", the 200x is a lovely bright red. That way you cant miss it! xD
