March recap - MMAsherdog blog

mmasherdog Mar 31, 2021

Whenever I run good, I tend to have dips in motivation. My goal for March was to be more consistent with my volume. The quality of the games was up and down, but I managed to play daily and continue the crazy upswing.
My goal for April is to do more of the same. Study a bit more this month, and keep it up the good work. Starting an upswing is one thing, keeping it up is another.
I wish I could play more than 10k hands a month, but at high stakes, you just have to take what you can get.

I've spent the last few weeks at home, but I'll be going back to Playa next week.
Good weather, the beach, nice food, spending time with friends, working out and not having to sit inside after 9PM like a cooped up chicken is more fun to me than staying in my home country right now.
