HOLDEM MANAGER

My Own Worst Enemy

For me the toughest part about being a poker player is handling the variance which can turn into mood swings. When you are winning you feel like a hero. When you break even you feel ok. When you lose you sometimes start questioning yourself, your abilities, your future, your choice of career and worst of all your decisions at the tables weakens so the downswing ultimately gets extended.

Back to No Limit Holdem

This month has been dramatic on the poker front. I have switched from playing Omaha (PLO) to No Limit Hold’em (NLHE) for several reasons that I will describe below.  It has also sadly been the month were my sister’s best friend died from cancer. This sad incident has boosted my motivation to finish writing up the content to this site so I can find one or more sponsors next year and raise money for Cancer.dk
