MMAsherdog January 2020 recap - A new year, new luck?

mmasherdog Jan 30, 2020

The goal in January was to take a little bit of time off and go on vacation and be in the sun every day.
My trip to Mexico was wonderful, and I had a great time seeing friends and attending my friends and Bluffthespot coach's wedding.

I came back fresh, worked on my game, and wanted to get in a lot of volume.
The games turned out being alright, but somehow I cannot discontinue my run bad streak. High stakes variance can be pretty crazy.
I am not losing too many flips, but I keep getting it in nuts over nuts, or jamming my best bluffing hands into the top of their range.

Tomorrow, I will go back to Malta to pick up my stuff and leave for good. I was there for over five years and mostly had a good time, but I'm over it now and want a new environment.
I'll be going back to Mexico and live there for a while, at least until summer.
It's a much healthier living environment, and I know a bunch of grinders who live there as well.

February is the month of kicking as s and having good results. Hopefully, I will quote this message with a big smile in four weeks. Wish me luck.
