I’m Still Alive & Playing The Hold’ems!

It’s been a long time, haven’t had the urge to blog lately. I haven’t been doing much, going to aikido and jujutsu. Basically doing the same old stuff, I’ve also been working on a website of mine, I don’t know why but I really like playing with websites.

It’s almost like The Sims but in real life where the website is the theme park, wee. I am not entirely satisfied with my poker website (texasholdempoker101.com). It’s about 1½ years since I first put it up and my lack of writing skills really shine through. Live and learn I guess.

I started trying the Sedona Method and having some interesting results so far with it. It’s basically a “method” of releasing emotions which comes in handy at the poker table for me. I’ve been able to stay tiltless longer, so the results so far are promising. I’ll let you guys know if I still like it after a month.

I’m intrigued you are getting success with the Sedona method. I find it rather simple…..

I guess its simplicity can be deceiving sometimes, but I find it works extremely well for me. Although I remember coming across it a few years ago and it didn’t stick.

But now I bumped into it again and I guess the time was right and me and Sedona hit it off, it works for me ;)

Thanks for mentioning this. I’ve really come to the conclusion that the only thing holding me back from being successful is my own anger. When I lose a large pot to the person I sat at the table to exploit, I really spiral out of control. There’s a swing that happens right then and there…it’s as if I get dumber and they get smarter. From there, I spiral into a rage that just depletes my stack/bankroll.

The Sedona method sounds interesting and it (or something like it) needs to be part of my poker arsenal. I plan to have something symbolic at my desk while I play that I can pick up after losing a big pot to a river-rat, and release it to the floor. Maybe a poker chip? The chip will represent my anger. Releasing it to the floor will symbolize me being in control and just letting it go. I just have to remember to leave it on the floor for a few hands! :-)

@Ken, thanks for your comment Ken. It sounds like you’re on your way. Becoming aware of your anger is the first step towards being tiltless as Tommy Angelo puts it.

I really like and recommend the Sedona Method and meditation, those two in conjuction with coaching from Tommy Angelo has made a huge difference in my game :)
