The Plan is to put steadily and gradually more hours into playing and studying. Weekly target for the first couple of weeks is 10hours /week.

[2] If you 're not knowing where you're going, eventually you will get to nowhere.

I think this is has more to do with why, rather than where actually. My why is very specific. I want to grow a bankroll through cash games in order to travel next summer to Las Vegas and have fun with my friends, meet new people, having new experiences and not going broke whilst doing so. This will be an opportunity to prove myself that I can.

In the next 6 months I will be depositing the equivalent of a roundtrip flight from my location to Vegas in 6 monthly installment's and I hope to have grown my skill and the roll to be able to beat 2/5 live and pay for my time there.

[1] Poker is a zero sum game, life shouldn't be.

I am not completely new to the game, I used to grind MTT's and have played the occasional cash games here and there. But having what they call the beginner's mindset is something that can be helpful in this new approach. Haven't seen a flop for almost a year now, and got back today, putting 2h of volume to fresh up the basics. You know where is the fold, where is the call, in which position I am supposed to hold an offsuit Ten and such.

Hey this is Cross.

This year, I am starting practicing cash games as a way to cross-train and enhance my endeavors. I see poker as a vehicle to meditate and dig deeper, discover and surpass my limitations.

I am not -and not planning to be- a professional poker player. The modern poker lifestyle doesn't exactly fit my ideal way of life. What's more interesting to me is all the traits that can be transferred from the great game to business, relationships and life in general.

Let this thread be the vessel of my journey and a locus for discussion.

Peace 🎇
