Bounce Back

I wrote my last post just after finishing my work day. An hour or so later I got a call from my good friend Matt wondering if I was OK. I just wanted to assure everyone that I'm not as upset as my last post might lead you to believe. One of the things that has allowed me to be so successful as a professional poker player is I have great bounce back.

I'm always pissed when I lose. If it's one dollar or ten thousand, I hate to lose. But my personal life is as good as anyone could ever wish for. I have a family who I love and who loves me, I have great friends, and I like where I live and what I do. While I never feel great after a loss, those feelings are always short lived.

Tomorrow is a new day and I'm going to go into it with a positive attitude and do whatever I can to make it a successful one!

I really do feel for you, as they say "Dem are da swings" I've been broke more times than you can shake a shitty stick at, hence why i only play live now.
Keep your head up, dig deep, I'm rooting for you from across the water.
Confidence breeds $'s

Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year.

All the best

Very Scarlett O'Hara. "Tomorrow is another day." I also like "Well I won't think about that right now. I'll think about that tomorrow."
