Getting Back into Poker

For the past few months i’ve barely played any poker, but i’m just starting to feel like I am getting back into it again. I’ve always had the most success from heads up Sit and go’s, so that’s what i’ll be playing.

My plan is to start at the $50 level, and hopefully after I make a few thousand, i’ll mix in $100 games, and then eventually $200, $100, and $50 games. I’ve played a ton of games at all those limits before and know what to expect. What i’ll be doing different this time is focusing hard on game selection. I’ll never sit first and only play losing and inexperienced players. The goal is to make money with as little variance as possible by playing bad players.

It’s so weird looking back a year ago and remembering how I thought I knew everything about poker. Now I’m realizing how much more I know now, and still how much I’ll need to mature at the game. It’s not even obvious stuff or directly related to playing cards, but a bunch of small things that will add up to a better ROI. I’ll talk about some of these theories / ideas in the future.

For now I need to work on focus / endurance at the table. I’ve never been able to play more then an hour or two at a time without an ADD attack. I don’t really have ADD, but I have no attention span. —Oh yeah, that reminds me that i was supposed to put clothes in the dryer about two hours ago.— I idolize the players who can pull 10+ hour sessions day in and day out.

Anyway, I’m really excited that I’m back into poker. Hopefully it lasts and I can make a lot of money.
