You should say something to her

Wow, yeah I knew this was happening but crazy it’s happening to someone so close to you. I like to believe I’d step up and say something on the kid’s behalf in that situation, but obv family situations can be pretty delicate so idk.

================================


So, scoop over, time to assess the damage and reevaluate. The bigger tourneys went about as bad as they could’ve gone – after mincashing the opening 2k I bricked 13 in a row. I think I made a mistake basically switching formats to purely MTTs for the whole 2 weeks – probably a better plan would’ve been to play the 3 sundays, but stick to the normal cash grind through the week. I think the increase in hourly playing MTTs is probably marginal at best through the week (especially given I was 6 tabling max), while obviously the level of variance is basically incomparable. That said, I did enjoy switching up the grind for a while – lots of weird spots thrown up by playing 8 handed rake free with antes, ICM pressure stuff, varying stack sizes etc. Definitely feel like I have a more solid understanding of low SPR spots in general too.

So after 2 medium-heavy losing months in a row, I’m definitely going to drop my highest stakes for a while and rebuild. My instinct is to set some goals for the month of June, but actually there’s no reason to write off these last 4 days of May. I need to get back in the habit of grinding every night, so I’ll just set the goal of playing 1 session every evening to close out the month. Got 2 smallish trips planned in June – going up to Elgin for my Granny’s 90th birthday, then have a wedding in France on 1st July which I’ll arrive couple days early for, so probably 50k hands is a good achievable goal. Looking forward to getting back into the regular grind

GL out there,
