Lack of motivation
Even before “Black Friday” was something that I had trouble with, at least in regards to playing online. When I open my laptop with the intention of playing, I usually also end up opening email, twitter, facebook and a game such as solitaire. Now that I can only play for play chips on Full Tilt or Pokerstars, I spend even less time there. I have found a place I can play and win cash prizes, but it’s not quite the same as playing on FullTilt. I had apparently signed up a couple years ago, on Card Player magazine’s site, NLOP.com. I tried a couple of tournaments with cash prizes. I came in 3rd in one, just missing the cash. With that, I also had an invite to play in a $1000 tournament on Sunday. However, it conflicted with poker at Starsky’s, so I didn’t register. However, I wasn’t feeling well and ended up not playing at the bar for the 2nd week in a row, which is unusual for me. I had tripped and fell the week before, banging up my knees, and didn’t want to move around much.
