Starting Balance: $1,752.00
Ending Balance: $1,500.00

As evident by the above starting/ending balance, it is safe to say that my head is still firmly lodged in my ass. So, the question is, what now? I've done my share of self analyses. I've reviewed the tapes so to speak. While part of me is apt to blame dumb luck, the logical side of my brain is convinced I'm lacking the same focus I would normally have. Is this due to the increased bankroll? Are there too many distractions when I'm playing? These are not easy questions to answer for me. I've made my share of money while watching television, surfing the net, writing in my blog, and downloading music all at the same time. Not smart, I realize, but I'm the type that has to multi-task to the point of obsession. Hence playing in several tournaments at any given time.


Alright, I'm not going to beat myself up too severely here. Up's and Down's are part of the game. So endure I shall. My strategy will entail taking a more reserved approach to the tournaments I buy in to tonight. I'm going to await my cards, and when I get them, be aggressive to a certain degree. If I tank tonight, my next step will be a simple break for a few days. Which may be needed anyway. Sometimes when I step back and take a break, it allows me to gain perspective. When I return to the game, I find things just click. Clarity is a wonderful thing.

Anyhoo, I'll let everyone know how tonight turns out as soon as possible. Until then...flop the nuts!
