Lots of points to cover and Taking Suggestions

Health issues have kept me from posting much, or even playing much poker.
I haven't been on UB at all, and from I can see, I almost regret deleting my AP account so I could make a UB account to go play with Annie Duke, and the others there. From what I can see, Absolute Poker has better customer service. Maybe a resurrection is in order. I'll email them.

What would you like to see in THIS blog about poker? or anything that I have half an opinion about? Because I'm in an opinionated mood and going to write this month :)
I care about what you think. You have source here to ask questions or talk about things that are important to you.

But I am feeling much better, and have a lap top so I can write more. Even when I can't get online with it, I'll be able to write down all those things that keep meaning to when I am traveling. I'm even going to write on my personal blog that rarely gets touched.

My guitar used to be my therapy, but I haven't replaced my last one, and need another source for therapy, so my blogs and my poker will get a lot of attention. Until I am creating music too. But I'm sure I can find some way to mix the two. or three. I have too many hobbies/careers/interests ... but c'est la vie!

More tomorrow on the following subjects:
Poker and Leaks in your Game
Online Attitudes and Behaviour
Bankrolls and management
My favorite players and Why.
People Change - Mike "the Mouth" Matusow, Phil "the PokerBrat" Helmuth, etc...
How Deep is your Game? (sounds like a book title! hmmm, another idea? I'll wait til people insist I write a book before I do)

Good luck on the felts! and everywhere else too.

Health and Playing Poker

It's good to know your limits. I know a lot of people who know better than to play while drinking, and a few that don't! Same for any other mind altering substances, and any sport, job, etc....

However, when you are sick, sometimes you got to work. An employer may prefer to have your partial performance, over no performance. But what about your poker game? Should you play while sick? What are you limits?

I've learned, that I can still play sick, if I need to. But I've also learned, I will only play sick, IF I NEED TO! Whenever I can decide NOT to play while sick, I will choose not to.

I have been sick, to the point that I've only gone to work, and come home and slept, and nothing else for over 2 weeks. I went to the doctor which I never do, and got some tests done. They didn't find anything out, and want to do more tests, and I will get them, because I know something serious is wrong.

However, I am finally feeling better, and will start posting again. I have a lot of other blogs to catch up on reading. I have music to write, people to go visit, and accomplishments to acheive. I feel like my life has been on hold, but I am back, and finally playing poker. It was killing me not to play, but after I sqaundered some of my bankroll, and I had to admit that the small percentage change in my playing, was having a larger effect on my bankroll.

Ah, patience. Not one of my virtues. But a necessary skill. Time to get back to the tables and check out these Double or Nothing Sit N Gos!

See you on Pokerstars! (or occasionally Ultimate Bet. I should be in Aruba!)
