The bad news, I have a lot of trouble winning on Sunday nights. I needed to try something different. The two things that always seem to help put me in the best mindset before poker have been exercise and taking a bath. I don’t take many baths (in a bathtub), but I once tried it for relaxation prior to a tournament at Pearl River. It worked. Then it worked again. And again. And this was without a rubber ducky! Exercising and taking a bath relax me in different ways. So, here was my plan … go for a jog, take a bath, and then watch a show about grizzly bears.

Would it work?

In chat, they’re talking about the approaching storms. We still don’t know about Laura because it’s about to hit landfall as I type this.

Game ends at 11:39 p.m. By far the earliest for a Poker with Friends game. As you already know, I didn’t promote nearly as much for this game, and when I did, it was ho-hum. That will change heading down the stretch. The energy you give is the energy you receive. If you don’t show enough effort, there will be no reward. So this is partially my fault. On the other hand, it was a winning session.
