Forcing myself to write that last blog post turned out to be a really really good idea and the writing spirit has been flowing through me again. I've been able to put together a few really good articles that I want to launch my site with and have recorded one podcast. I have some youtube stuff I want to put together that I think will be fairly entertaining for people that enjoy PLO and big pots.

Poker over the last few months has been going extremely well. Grinding in the anonymous shadows hasn't been as fun as grinding for glory but it has been going well. I wish I had adopted the approach to goal setting and away from the table studying that I have begun doing long long ago. When I used to play poker I really didn't have any goal beyond get Supernova elite, make a million dollars on my graph, play a zillion hands, try to have a sick ptr...... Now I have been able to set more short term goals that keep me focused but also control the degen side of me much better. I still get the itch to play the highest stakes running but I have found peace with the idea of not. Playing on websites like Bovoda, some American and sites where you have to vpn is a change and also forces you to keep less money online and usually play less games because the sites don't allow you to play more or the software is pretty bad. As it turns out this is actually a really good thing because what I failed to keep in mind during my big upswing is that playing less tables is really really really really good for you and playing alot of tables is really really really bad for you in terms of ev. I made a prop bet with a friend that I wouldn't post any graphs on social media or my blog for 6 months and I think this has actually hurt my motivation to make alot of money. That seems very very dumb but I have always been in it for the "glory". I do wish it was smart to post more PLO strategy out there or talk about it more openly on the blog or poker forums but anything beyond basic stuff has always seemed like a bad idea. With my website I have been trying to figure out a way to balance my dislike for talking strategy and my desire to help people out. But at this point in my life doing something beyond sitting around on the computer playing poker and mindlessly reading social media while living in the suburbs where I see my girlfriend each day is going to be a really really good thing for me and make me enjoy my life much more. If that means I have to help people become better poker players or happier at life, then why not. I've actually become 2000x better at improving myself with non-poker related things like working out, yoga, cooking, dieting, cleaning, basketball, fashion, piano, guitar and I guess a whole bunch of random different things I've tried to improve upon. I think that has impacted poker as well but I think I'm just being lazy using it as an excuse as to why I'm not working harder.

I feel like the whole glamorous side of poker that once existed has slowly eroded over time into a wasteland of terrible things. Maybe there is no glamorous side of poker and maybe the state of online poker is going to slowly deteriorate until it doesn't exist but as someone who's life has become something I never could have imagined from poker, I think there is inspiration to be shared, stories to be told and hopefully motivation to be given to someone out there hoping to make it at poker and change their life for the better. This is one of the visions I have in my head for what I can come up with for a website and I have no doubt it will be that on some level.

The whole idea for my website came to me when I woke up and did my usual go on twoplustwo and do nothing for 15 minutes in the morning. I was just confused why there aren't more poker related sites that I go to. I love poker, i love following poker, reading about it, being entertained through poker related things but it just seems like everything that exists out there is the same. The interviews are all the same general style and no one is really trying anything new. I think alot of this is to be expected as the American market declines and less people are playing poker online. I figured if there is no website that exists that I am looking for and no one is doing podcasts that would interest me then I would figure out a way to do it myself. I think another big reason, which I talked about a bit before, is my life living in the states in the suburbs with a girlfriend has become pretty boring. I love my girlfriend and love being around her but without raging and cold weather, I really don't end up doing too much. Diving into something like this and seeing what happens has to be better and more fun.

Sounds like a big project! I hope you inspire alot of people to help out. I dunno if it will make you life more exciting though, you'll still be at a computer battling with little problems and deadlines
Hope it goes well

hey joe

i'm a 2p2er (and v low frequenter of lp (i mainly check out marshall's blog on here ))

like, i love poker (though play microstakes) and i love poker podcasts (lifewithfacecards, thinkingpoker, pokerstatic, pokercast whatever).

if you need some help with the website i'd love to lend a hand. though if i need to know something about computer language you have to tell me now so i can at least look into it (and prepare a learning schedule for python, django etc (i know nothing about them or what they do, i was hoping to contribute more to the content side unless you were desperate))

are you ready to brainstorm on here wrt content? or is it private?

by the way, just wanted to comment on the whole goal oriented thing you touched on. I recently set goals for myself for the first time. Nothing special, I just had a daily profit quota I wanted to hit. I know you should never stop earning money as long as you are winning, but I needed something to look forward to, a set value so I could feel like I accomplished something for the day. Instantly my bankroll started to grow in ways it has never grown before. Quite simply I was a winning player almost every single day. There was no such thing as a losing day, because I always had to hit my goal. Of course sometimes I failed anyway, but it sure felt a lot better than any other given day where I just played till whenever. It even helped me through the tilt by keeping me focused so that I could hit my goal. I think people respond well to goals, as it is a measurement of your success, and everyone wants to feel successful at something. Cant wait to hear where you go with this.

Setting daily profit goals is the worst idea you could have.
Goals in terms of hands/vpps can give some motivation and provide a feeling of accomplishment.
Goals in terms of $ are just gonna get you tilted and restrain your winnings.

"There was no such thing as a losing day, because I always had to hit my goal"

Seriously?

darace after you question my fashion taste you lose all credibility on these comments, my style is legendary to myself

thanks for the comment man, would love to have a few people to brainstorm ideas with, I will send you a message on here about it more. I'm planning on being a pretty open book in terms of ideas for the website and the direction im thinking about potentially going as it evolves, I'm sure I will get alot input from readers as well

lol replies like darace made to what you said are funny, like he is the king of knowing which goals someone should set or how everyone in the world should dress. Setting no goals is much worse than setting daily profit goals, starting with a goal where you want to make a certain amount is a place to begin and re-evaluate your goals and ideas you have moving forward. I think for some people out there setting a profit goal daily will actually help them make more money, not restrict their potential winnings
