Poker in Odessa

June was an eventful month. It started out in Twin Peaks which was incredible, followed by eating amazing food in Seattle, then Copenhagen and ended in Odessa, Ukraine, which I have enjoyed very much! I thought I would slow down on the traveling this year but my destiny had different plans.

My Own Worst Enemy

For me the toughest part about being a poker player is handling the variance which can turn into mood swings. When you are winning you feel like a hero. When you break even you feel ok. When you lose you sometimes start questioning yourself, your abilities, your future, your choice of career and worst of all your decisions at the tables weakens so the downswing ultimately gets extended.
