December 19 – Finished Another Video

Comments off 1043 Views0

So my workation (a vacation in which you still work, ldo) is going quite well. Finished up my coaching on Thursday and took Friday off because I had originally planned to go pick up my sister from college that day. That plan changed and I ended up using Friday to to record a session for my Stox video coming out in a week or so. The first session was meh (made a really awful play with bottom pair in a 3b pot against a good player that I think I over-thought badly) and the second session came out much better with some good spots and good tables.

(my stats for the 4-tabling video…though I really wasn’t trying to LAG…it just happened =) )

Ended up going out on Friday night with some family and family friends down in Manchester. Hit up a bar and quickly realized how much of a light-weight I have become, lol. I think I only had 6 beers and then I decided it would be best to relax and water down. *sigh*. College-me would be ashamed. Had a good time though as they had live music that kicked out some classics and it was nice to see some people that I hadn’t seen in quite some time. And all of these people are very cool and supportive with what I do for a living, and very curious in a non-judgemental way…which makes for some fun conversation.

Woke up today and had lunch with my Uncle and Abdul. Bummed around for the morning then finished my video up. I decided to do audio after the session rather than live…so it was a first for that. I think the video came out pretty well as I spent some serious time hammering out some floating concepts and also a metagame spot where I looked at the range heavily. I think I may have spent a little too much time on the metagame hand (an over-bet shove spot), but I think it worked well. Hopefully the video gets the reviews that my “Expert HUD” video did (4.7/5 over 22 votes I believe)

I am probably going to go lay down for a bit before dinner. I am super tired today and have some students and sessions to do tomorrow…so I need to be awake. Hope all is well with everyone =)
