3.5 Month Blog/Poker Break!

..... where do i begin?

First the break was not planned. I did not say i will not play poker/blog for this period of time, it just happened. I did not, do not hate poker. I'm just not as enthused as i used to be.

Several things kinda happened in my life at once that made if difficult for me to care or focus entirely on poker. Then i went on a downswing, and was unable to recover. My poker 'mojo' was gone. I could not handle the swings of the 6max grind. I cancelled my CR subscription, withdrew almost all of my bankroll (about 3k), stopped blogging and reading forums.

I made some tough decisions and ended two important relationships that i think were not bringing anything good to my life. The intimate relationship had me a little more twisted than i'd like to admit and took awhile longer to end.

Pokerwise i'm still not completely back into it, and honestly i don't think i will ever get back to that point again. Right now i have no interest in reading forums, poker books or posting hands. I have logged on to 2p2 but usually just log off again without reading or posting anything.

..... i just saved... nah :)

I won my first $4 180 man sit n go last Sunday. Then on wednesday i took 2nd in another. I also went deep in the 100k (250 of 18K) a few weeks ago. I've also played a couple 2.20 buy-in mtts with about 1500 entrants making the money both times, with my best finish being 20th.

So it looks like i will make my comeback via Mtts. I hope to post and play more regularly from here on... well at least once per week.
