Poker bootcamp

It has been a very busy week and is promising to be a busy weekend.   My wife and two wonderful sons will be leaving me to visit her family in Australia on Tuesday morning, so I have been spending all the time I can with them and getting very little else done (hence no posts this week).   But with them gone for 7 weeks I will have a plethora of time on my hands.  What ever shall I do?

Well first off I will be able to work alot.  I will hopefully get some overtime as well as get things done around the house.  Other than that I plan to play massive amounts of poker.  If I do manage to get to the WSOP I need to get alot of practice.  Luckily I have a few options on that front.  I can play in home games on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Other nights of the week I will probably get a little online action.

During this time I want to try and improve areas of my play.  I want to get better at short-stack play, heads-up play and reading players.  I will also have time to page through a few poker books.  Chasing after my two little ankle biters (ages 3 and 1) I don't get alot of time to peruse these tomes but I think I will be able to get to a few I haven't read yet.

So for the next 7 weeks I am going to go through a Poker Bootcamp of sorts.  I will still be trying to win, but at the same time I want to try new things and get a more balanced and effective game.  And when (not if) I make it to the WSOP I will have the skills I need to take it down.


Well I have to get back to my little hellions and make sure their room is not burning to the ground.  I only have a few more days with them and I want to make the most of every day.  And remember always play it like you've got the nuts.
