Day 15: Sept 4th

I played about 6k hands today, and it was pretty bad. I did very well on party poker, but did terrible on stars. I don't know what it is, its just lately I can't put up good numbers and I am playing like an idiot. The last thing I did tonight was played elky at 10/20 for 3 hands where I lost one 2k pot and just left. That was stupid....

Its quite a bummer, I am pretty sure I cannot make my goal, and I really have no motivation to keep this goal going any longer. Also considering playing stricly on party for a while so I can rebuild my roll and send some funds from party to stars.

Today: -$2,210.11
Total: $41,196.25
I Need: $241,196.25

Yo Lee,

It's me the kid who you met in TS that you didn't know how to pronouce his online name. :)

I think sometimes a monatary goal is just plain stupid. We know you are a great player. Variance can kick us all in the ass.

I think you need to look in the grand scheme of things

Currently you wake up with the goal...i want to make 2k today for the next 100 days

Instead you should be waking up with this. I want to play the best poker and make as few mistakes as posible. I want to play XXX amount of hands.

Sometimes setting money amounts is a great way to get discouraged about the good buddy Variance.

Hopefully some of this made sense.

way to go champ. I liked messing with you more when u were playing like a baller. Now I just feel pity....dare i say compassion. You coulda been a contender. I told you what stage of your career you were entering and you didn't wanna listen to the Grandiose. Learn some lessons son. You are too big for your britches.

Quit this goal of yours. I think you are pressured.

If you don't believe you can do it, you might as well just give up.

You will never excel in poker unless you have confidence.

Bad swings happen to everyone.

There's only one way to come back.

Quit the HU matches, the large-scale NL tables, and instead focus on the 2/4, 5/10, 3/6 tables. Play multiple tables, and don't get greedy.

Oh and keep in mind there's no free lunch in life.

Johnny Chan, when asked about the splendor, thrills and marvels of pro poker, told me in an email "poker is no panacea. Focus on your studies instead".

Lee--

I wanted to see if you'd be open to an interview for PokerWorks. I've interviewed captZEEbo, Juan Carlos Mortensen, and Joe Sebok among others (Jeff Williams/yellowsub next week as well as Jason Strasser for PokerStars), and I know alot of people would be interested. If you're up to it, please email me at csquard at gmail dot com. Thanks, and good luck turning things around.
