mainly because I've hit a spot where I'm just not that motivated right now to dig in and play all that seriously. I'm not real focused and am just splashing around, making a bunch of puddles.
Hell, I sort of paid attention to WBCOOP #3 today, but after the first break, I just decided to shut it down and blind out because I just did not feel like grinding for 5-6 hours to maybe earn a tournament ticket over $30. All props to Lightning36 for actually final tabling one of these things.
Because I finally managed to get rakeback on FTP (woot) I did get motivated to hit the Rush Poker tables. I did hang out at 50NL and 100NL for a while and went +6 buyins at one level and -6 buyins at the other. Naturally, I did this the reversed way - and lost coin :(
The bankroll challenge will be an EPIC FAIL. I will be happy if I break even by March and avoid paying out the $50 for a large field MTT final table. Of course I think I may have one deep MTT run in me before it all ends... If I can just not bust myself in the first 30 minutes of a tournament I usually do alright.
But for the moment, I'm just trying to balance work/life/everything else and not let any of the spinning plates hit the ground...
