Weaning Back In

It has been an interesting few months. I have found myself completely disinterested in poker and as such have not been playing since about December, a span of perhaps three months. Prior to that, I had gone to Vegas, cashed in a WPT minor event, and hit Turning Stone where I had a good showing in one of their events. However, I began to simply lose focus, lose interest, and lose money as a result. Poker was not fun so I quit. Rather, I took a hiatus. Over the past week I have been quietly weaning back into it. I started playing a few of the Party Poker 3-Table sit and go tournaments. They now have a $50 level so I play those when they are running and I play the $30 level otherwise. I try to have 4 tournaments running at a time at all times.

The results over the past week are not too bad. In three days I played 27 3-table tournaments and made $822. That is a 70% ROI. Do I still got it or what?

I know that ROI is not sustainable and the sample size is puny and the results are skewed by two first place finishes in the $50 tournaments, yadda yadda... but I cannot help but smile at these results. I feel as though I have not been away at all when I am at the tables. I fall right back into it like riding a bike; I never forget how to do it. I will keep you informed how my little comeback is progressing over the next few weeks. I don't want to go too fast, after all.

I will also try to be more dilligent about updating this site. I know that I am not playing a lot of poker now, but I have missed a few updates about tournaments I played at the WSOP and a few WPT events as well as the ITH convention and a win at Binion's Horseshoe last summer. I might try to compile a few trip reports on them, but they were quite a while ago. We shall see. Until next time, keep your cards down and your stack up.
