I lost a lot last summer and quit playing untill now. I kinda lost the fun and my confidence and since I've been focusing on studies a lot I have not had any spare time for playing either. I'm studying economic and social history which is amazingly fun and cool subject. Did you know that in 1600th century it was commonplace amusement to burn kittens alive? Torturing cats in many imaginative ways was in general considered good sport. You certainly did not know that Eric (or who the fuck, they are all Erics or something like that) the king of Denmark in 17th century used to spend more time in one lowclass pub than with politics. His favourite whore in the pub was called "Boot-Maija". Apart from history I've read science and technology studies and philosophy of science quite a bit.
When I restarted poker a month ago, I did very badly at nl20, did not find any fun in it and played very little. Now however I refound my love for sngs as I discovered that entrance has enough action to keep me at least 6 - 8 tabling (I couldnt play more anyway since I'm getting used to ICM play again). Now I have a solid plan: play SNG untill roll is healthy for nl50 playing, and if cash games still won't feel fun at that point just keep with sngs. Ah really a relief to find that I can still enjoy poker.

Just a heads up, "they say" cash games is a lot harder than sit n go's, so you might get a nasty surprise when you switch to 50nl cash when you reached your first goal.
