just woke up not too long ago and wanted to let everyone know that I really appreciate your support! It has been wonderful to see everyone’s messages! Anytime I’m in the big ones like the World Series, or the World Poker Tour, it seems to drain me and the emotional pick-up is well needed.
Now, it’s time to prepare for day 3.More from day 2 is still to come. I just need to get the notes out and do a little transcribing so everyone will actually be able to understand my gibberish.
Also, I really wanna thank Julio with Cardplayer for taking such a great pic of me!
Bobby Knight, famous college basketball coach, said, “The will to win wasn’t as important as the will to prepare to win.”
The will to win has always been with me, within all of us. It is the preparation both mentally and emotionally that separates those who have the will to win, and those who can actually close the deal. I have the will to prepare to win. So let’s get on with that win!
I have begun poker preparations for my trip to New Orleans for the last WSOP circuit event May 8th – 20th, 2009. Not only will I be participating in the preliminary events, as well as, the main event, but I will ultimately be defending my title as the Cajun Classic Queen. I earned this title in May of 2008 when I had the honor of winning the Ladies Only NLH event.
I woke up around noon today, but was slow to get out of bed. Mike and Jack had left the house very early for their usual Saturday fishing outing. The sun was shining brightly and the breeze gently dancing through the palm trees. Looking out the window gazing at the beautiful view from my bedroom window I am finally able to drag myself from bed. While tending to my personal needs, I planned my day. I am going to re-read notes, review flashcards, and play online.
When writing up an article, I start with the title of the article, date written, and authors name. Most of my notes are taken from Cardplayer and Bluff magazines. There is an occasional note from Poker Pages, as well. I enjoy reading from the poker greats. Many of my favorite’s contemporary authors have done well for themselves over the past three years.
I have taken copious notes on my readings (both poker magazines and books) since I took up the hobby of playing poker. To date I have filled 4 steno pads with important concepts and ideas. Before a major tournament, I like to re-read these notes. These annotations allow me to prepare myself mentally for my upcoming journey through the unending tsunami of red and black cards to come.
Being a Hoosier I understand all too well the importance of preparation as quoted by Bobby Knight. It is the groundwork of the game which will in turn lead to the greatest satisfaction of all, the win.
I arrived in Reno yesterday after a rather bumpy airplane ride. I am here to play with the LIPS team in the Jennifer Harmon Charity Poker tournament. This tournament benefits the National Kidney Foundation and is being held at the Grand Sierra Resort. There are a truckload of top notch sponsors, such as Full Tilt Poker, DreamTeam Poker, CardPlayer, Curtis & Co. Watches (and many more). We are anticipating a great turnout!
My sis is joining me for this trip, so I anticipate less poker than usual. Lisa does not play poker, nor does she have any interest in learning. However, as the best Sis in the world, she supports me in whatever I do—so she came along. Love you! Let’s hope she finds the Throw Down cocktail party more to her liking.
