Travelling a bunch and being busy with Bluffthespot is one thing, but my volume and performance were definitely nowhere to be seen this month.
It's difficult to work hard in Mexico. The weather is great, the food is good, and I know lots of people in Playa to spend time with. Before you know it, the month is over.

Now that I've settled down again, it's time to grind consistently this month. I've worked ahead on lab videos, so I should have plenty of time and I'm very motivated to crush poker this month.

The games have been very slow, but then crazy and fantastic out of nowhere. I'll just have to spend lots of hours online, waiting for action.
I ran very badly at 500/1k and 500 1k 2k. I would have been up, had I not played those games. But that's how high stakes poker works sometimes. I definitely cannot complain about my 14-month, 1M+ USD upswing.
