Farewell Online Poker

I have decided that I will take a break from playing online poker.

Mookie is only thing I have played since Monday and I made mistake of shoving two overs and a flush draw against Speaker and failed to suck out. Congrats to him for deep 50-50 run since he spewed away my gift in Mookie.

During poker break I will get out of my comfy chair and try to get in better physical condition.

Simplest aspect of plan is to have at least 3 days a week where I walk or run.

I figure with my access to public transportation it is pretty easy to walk 1 mile to trolley in morning to get to work, for trip home I can walk home until I feel ready to try to run home. I will just run along trolley route so I can bail and ride but last 3/4 mile (1 mile without trolley change) always has to be at least walking.

Tuesday I made effort but only walked 1st mile toward home when I realized it was frkn cold. So I sprinted 200 yards to catch a trolley. Driver was not going to open the door to teach me a lesson but instead let me in and made admonishing announcement about dangers of jaywalking.

In my defense Tasman was clear to top of hill at least 1/3 mile away and I ran behind trolley after it passed. I chuckled and a few of the other passengers were shaking their fingers at me as they laughed.

Today was supposed to be another trolley day but it was warm under the covers and cold outside. I did not have time for trolley and timely arrival at a meeting so plan broken.

Note for quitter: I will spend medals for iron month to keep streak alive one more month.

Good luck sir! I'm planning on making April a far lighter month of poker too.
