Okay, as you know, I'm a guy who has no clue what to do with his life. Also, I'm a guy who comes up with a lot of idea's what to do, says he'll stick to it and then abandon it after a short time. So, let's look at a few of the things I've claimed to go and do in this blog:
- Grind FLHE ring games (Where this whole blog started, managed to stick to it for a pretty long time, till I made Silverstar for the first time basically)
- Grind HU sngs and MTTs (Stuck to it for maybe 3 weeks)
- Grind 45-seaters
Oh, nice quote here from a post on 10-4-2008:
- Started studying Communication and Information sciences (quit after 2 months)
- Grind STTs (managed to stick to it for several months, until...)
- Do a prop bet in $6.50 STTs, $2000 profit in a week (this meant I had to do weeks and weeks of training, which totally killed my motivation, ended up quitting STTs altogether)
- Not really a challenge, but I'll take every chance to mention it: Shipped summer classics event for €16000 XD
- Play steps to qualify for PCA (wanted to play 75 step 1s, stopped after 37)
- Grind 50NL 6-max (quit after dropping $500 in the first week)
Oh, another nice quote (2-24-2010):
- $12 180s (had a huge downswing which killed my spirits, later I decided there's no value in m as there's too many people grinding them)
- Quit poker (fell back right after making the announcement, May 2010)
- Write songs (actually managed to fill a notebook, still occasionally write some)
- Study Psychology (which I've kinda decided to quit, again)
- Get Iron Man for 3 months (quit halfway the first month, downswing killed me)
- Quit poker again (fell back at the end of January '11)
- Write an album (never got past the concept, cept writing 2 texts I think)
- Write a book (never got past the concept)
So that's it. There's one thing I haven't included, which is MTTs. It seems that whatever I did, I always came back to MTTs in the end. Kinda sucks as that's not where the real money is if you wanna play poker for a living, but I guess I just love them. It's actually going pretty good lately, playing for a $700 bas, currently up to $1150ish I think, just by playing MTTs. 2 final tables and 4 top 20s so far in a week, 3 of which were yesterday. I hope it can continue.
But anyways, the reason for making this post is that I've kinda decided what I want to do with my life. If you look at the points I just made there's one thing that clearly stands out, poker is one of the biggest things is my life. I always come back to poker, no matter what I do. Whenever I went to college it's for the reason that it's normal do it, that you HAVE to, but do you really? I can also just lose all those thoughts right now, and pursue a career in poker, or at least in the casino scene. I'm gonna apply at the Holland Casino, hopefully they'll have a dealer job for me, I'm perfect for the job, I know the rules of just about every game they offer, I'm very quick with numbers, I can shuffle a deck within 10 seconds, dunno what they'd want more. Then if I can get that job then maybe someday I can become Floor Manager, would be freaking awesome tbh.
I also really want to become good at poker again. I mean, it's not like I suck, but I've been way better in the past. I just need to study a lot, analyze a lot etc, too bad that I find that the most boring part of the game, but it's necessary if I really wanna become good again. I'm currently crushing the micro scene though lol. Just playing MTTs below $11 for the BAS, I think that's where the most value lies for me. The $22-$55 are filled with players who are better than me, while there are hardly any atm (seems so at least) under $11.
So, short lines of this post, I don't want to go to college (unless I get into Journalism, but the chances are very slim), I want to get in the casino scene, or play.
