I'd like to thank all my fans, my mom, and especially PokerStars RNG for such a sick set up!
Other than that poker has been going relatively well again. I continue to get smacked around to the tune of -100bb / 1k hands in EV at 50NL in the few sessions I've put in there but have been consistently beating 25NL and will probably stick to my plan of playing there for the rest of this month. I'm a bit behind on the number of hours I wanted to put in with only 38 so far - on pace for 100 hours would be 56 so that's about an hour per day that I've been slacking off. I've been fairly busy with a ton of yard work, hauling in crushed rock for finishing up my landscaping and seeding some new grass. But I am keeping up much better in terms of actual volume at 45k hands so I'm pretty happy with that.
