Sorry that it’s been almost a month since my last update but I’ve been focusing on getting settled in my new home, and trying to get myself into a bit of a more normal eating and sleeping routine. I’ve found it really hard to put in any sort of meaningful volume over the past three months or so just due to feeling fatigued and tired a lot of the time. There has been days when I’ve been waking up at 9am after a decent 10 hour sleep, having breakfast and then feeling so tired that I’ve had to go back to sleep and have another nap.
After speaking with my doctor I’ve made a conscious effort to consistently eat more healthy, limit the amount of alcohol I drink on nights out and have more of a routine to my lifestyle. I find myself sometimes as a poker player caring more about how much money I am winning/losing at any given time to the detriment of more important things in my life such as health and my family. One of the greatest advantages of our profession is that we don’t have to adhere to the ”rules” that most people in society follow, however I’ve learnt that without some sort of structure or pattern to our lives we are only hurting ourselves.
Since Living in Kingston I’ve made/am in the process of making the following chances to my lifestyle.
- During weekdays try and go to sleep not much later than midnight.

I’ve read so many articles in the past how important health is for being a poker player and It’s crazy even after only a few weeks how much better I feel at the moment than I have done over the past few years. If your someone yourself who plays poker regularly and you feel like your not healthy/overweight etc I can’t stress how important I think this is as I feel a lot of us, myself included have been living in a way where we are destined for an early grave.
Although I’ve been running above expectation , my first week of proper grind since moving into the flat/and adopting my new routine has been my best ever. I feel more focused, feeling like I’m adapting to opponents frequencies more regularly and sooner, and against the more competent/aggressive regs feel that I’m fighting for more pots than I have been previously. One of my main strengths is that my ROI when playing against fish/weaker players is going to be higher than most as I feel I’m more in tune with the population tendencies of fish than weaker players, and am slowly but surely becoming more accustomed to the best Hyper Turbo players’ games also.
I’ve decided to integrate some $500 games into my grind to try and catch back to Supernova Elite pace, and I also feel I’m playing well enough at the moment to justify it.
