Idealistic Poker Heroine

White Horse

I’m in Vegas chillin in my condo taking another personal day off. Women need these, ya know. It was a tough choice since my days in Vegas are limited and the action is really great at every casino every day. I figure I’ve been through a lot these past few days and I can spend another day grinding online.

My accounts got hacked by someone who was once relatively close to me, and though I won’t go into details, it made me really bitter and closed me off even more to the world. I eventually got the money back, but I still just really don’t understand how people can be so vindictive.

My RUSH results since I recovered my FTP account has stagnated. This has been due to a mixture of trying to force results by making up for lost time, subconscious tilt, and some pretty sick coolers with deeeeep stacks. Well, the field may be slightly tougher these days as well, but tbh I’m not too worried about that part.

Anyhow I cashed in the WSOP ladies event for 69th, which was a disappointing finish considering I was really hoping to take it down. Even then, I had a lot of fun and I was impressed by some very skilled female players.

A few days later I played the 6 max event on a recommendation by a skilled friend, but busted soon after dinner break after being table chip leader and doubling 2 shorties up and coming back late after a nap. In a short-handed game 10 minutes of blinds and antes can really hurt. I should have definitely been more diligent for this $2500 event. A few days later I played a Venetian Deepstack and min-cashed after 12 hours. Tourneys are so rough! Some believe that cash is much more stressful, but tourneys require so much more stamina and luckboxness!

Anyhow, so I’m 4/5 in tournament cashes with 1 final table this year. Well, 4/6 if you include the mega-satty I played a few days ago. Not bad, but I want to WIN something desperately. Other than last session, cash has been pretty amazing. There’s been good games at pretty much every casino I’ve gone to, and it’s been a steady climb.

It was my birthday a few days ago, and though I can`t say it wasn`t eventful, it was a pretty depressing day for personal reasons. I won’t go into detail, but it had to do with my current priorities being in conflict with what others are expecting of me. Thus, the personal days off, and I realized my last session was was certainly premature as I was playing in an emotionally unstable state. I only have about a week and a half left of time here, but it’s still probably a better idea if I take some more time off for myself before I push even harder for the last stretch. I don’t have a main event seat yet and I probably won’t play if I don’t win one.

All the best from Vegas 🙂
