A very brief update

I wish I could post more regularly but I'm not in the best of moods.

Argentina is cold now, typically just a couple above freezing at night, maybe 15 degrees celsius in the afternoons. I really should switch hemispheres but my private life is hampering my travel plans.

I've also been getting a severe spanking at the poker tables this week. Poker can bore me at the best of times, but it's mind-numbing when you can't win a pot.

It's a holiday weekend here (May 25th = Revolucion de Mayo). The history of this relatively young country makes quite interesting reading (naturally it's littered with examples of Politicians screwing it's people left, right and centre), maybe I should summarize it one day.

Chau for now.

Hi, great blog. Sounds like you live a great life. Do you travel and play poker to support yourself??

hang in there.

Poker as a living is tough - but it will have those highs once again.

Perhaps a short break in style, playing a tourney or two; play just one slightly higher stakes table, or some such change might help.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Amatay: yep, you basically nailed it. I am also trying to support myself (and now my GF) via a website or two.

BFU: you're spot on. For me the temmptation is to play for even more hours to recover the losses, but I'm taking a couple of days off, and then will play some NL cash (micro stakes) and the odd sitngo, just for fun.

Let's just say I'm looking forward to the correction.

Hey, What are the websites....I'll give them some traffic for you.
