BiFailsic and Poker

So I didn't exactly keep a log of my sleep as I had planned, but I'll give you a brief summary of how my biphasic sleep cycle went. I felt great even after many days in a row of sleeping twice per day for 3-3.5 hours. A problem arose, however, in trying to get enough hours in playing poker. As I suspected a little in the beginning, games would break early, or it would be difficult to get into a game at 9-10pm. Also, when 5am rolled around and I was in a great game I would have to quit to be home to get to sleep in order to wake up with my family at 9am. I found that my average hours of play while biphasic was only around 5 hours. It was a little annoying, but I'm happy that my body and mind dealt with biphasic sleep without a problem, and if I see a situation in which it could be useful, I will be able to implement it.

In poker news, it's been a rough go of it ever since mid-May. I lost about 5k in May after a 15k peak. I followed that up with spending ~30k of my own money on WSOP events with a couple small cashes and cash games keeping me from losing a ton (only dropped like 5-6k in June). It was a gamble I was willing to take as I could still comfortably grind 5/10NL if I completely bricked out of events, and the upside potential of a big score would affect my life much more positively than bricking out would affect it negatively.

After an annoying summer I haven't really had any good results in cash since then; breaking even in July and dropping 11k taking a 10/20 shot today after being even all month. Add it all up and I haven't made money since April and have a 15k hole to climb out of over that timespan. Add in expenses and you could have a lot of stress if you let it worry you. Luckily I'm a grizzled veteran, and I will continue to battle the Variance beast into the darkness until I saddle the bitch and ride it into the sunrise.

Speaking of which, I have a trip coming up to Atlantic City for the WPT $3,500 at Borgata. If I don't win, hopefully the cash games will be ripe with tourney donks and Jersey assholes to give me all their cheese.

Bye!

Congrats on the baby Thats a really cute shirt your first ones wearing. How many more kids are you planning to have? I would guess that you'd also want to experience fathering a boy. If the next one is a girl, would you flip again?

Out of curiosity, do you live in Las Vegas and grind there? If so, where do you normally play?

Yeah, mostly Bellagio, a little at Aria, a little at Wynn.

I heard about Aria casino that has soft games in 1/3 is it true?

I am planning to go to Las Vegas in December, the last time I went, I grind in MGM, pretty easy to play and a lot of tourist.

And if there is another Casino where you recommend me to play.

In my opinion, games are much softer at MGM, at least the 1/2 game there. Aria games are not so soft in my opinion. Bellagio has the most games and falls some where in between MGM and Aria in terms of how soft the games are.

When I went to Aria I saw the name "JohnnyCosmo" on the waiting list. I did not sit at that table.
