Writing and playing poker as if they were activities worth doing well.

Day 28: Working It

It was a good day today.

I had an immensely productive afternoon: four hours of substantial progress on the book. I sat in my local Starbucks, sipping on a quad-shot venti latte and just cranking. I have rarely in my life felt as in the pocket. I am more persuaded than ever that I am doing the right thing at the right time, and it feels really, really good.

Then I zipped across the river to a tournament hosted this evening by one of my A League colleagues. Although not part of our quarterly points system, this game featured a large buy-in and fifteen participants.

I played my ass off: a creative, error-free game. Despite getting knocked down pretty hard a couple of times ~ once at my original table and once at the final table ~ I stayed calm and just fought my way back into contention. I climbed up from a low of 4 BBs heads-up to take the game. Every decision I made was a good decision, and (as one must to win a tournament) I got lucky with good cards when I really needed them.

It was a damn good day today.
