Despite being a part of the poker world as both a player and dealer for the better part of the last decade, I am starting over. It only makes sense to restart at the bottom and earn my way up. I have no job, $100 & a dream.
With only $100 & a family to take care of, the only logical place to play poker is online. Although it’s not “legal” to play online in Washington state, there are ways around it (play here–>Ignition Poker).
It is pretty difficult to make a meaningful amount of many per hour when only starting with $100, but the things I hope to learn are of the utmost importance. If I can get to the point where these things become first nature, it will set me on track for a successful road ahead. First, I need to manage my time playing poker in a way that will be beneficial to the well-being of myself and my family. Juicy game or playing outside with my daughter on a sunny day? Sounds like it’s time to go outside! Tired? I better go to bed. Prioritizing poker & family time could limit the amount of time I play poker though, so I need to make the most of that time.
This means when I am playing I need to being playing to my full potential. This requires maximum self-discipline, avoiding tilt, & staying focused, things that I have struggled with.
I am really just hoping to overcome the mental aspects of the game that I have struggled with in the past. If I make money while I am doing that, I will be feeling pretty good about myself.
