Day 9

Hands Played Today: 3078Total Hands Played: 59828Hands Needed: 140172Pace: 60003 (-175)Jog: Yes (6/20)Comments:I had problems motivating myself to play today. Just played one session where I ran about average. I think the biggest demotivating factor is the low limits I play. It frustrates me b/c I know I'm a solid winner at much higher limits. And I feel like I am wasting my...

Day 4

Hands Played Today: 4656Total Hands Played: 25999Hands Needed: 174001Pace: 26668 (-669)Jog: Yes (3/20)Comments:Complete waste of my time today. The most absurd miracle cards and setups for them all day. Cut it early and take my first losing day ever, at retard limits, (half a buyin) b/c I can't be bothered to play anymore when its clear that I have no chance to win.

Day 2

Took a lot of horrid beats it seemed but managed to make a decent amount still. I need to look into meditation or mind calming stuff. I play so much better and the grind seems so much easier, when I get myself to relax.

Day 22

Day 20 & 21

Hands Played Today: 7257Total Hands Played: 82793Comments:I didn't play yesterday. All those hands were today. Continue to run pretty good overall. Its so easy to get lazy and take a day off.
