Back at work

I'm back at work this week and hating the cold, early mornings, less hours at the table and not being able to pick and choose the times I play. I think it has made me realise more than ever that I really like the idea of going pro and ditching the 9-5 job. However, I've got a long way to go and am not going to rush into it. I figure I'd want at least 6 months in a row earning more than I do now as well as a healthy bankroll before I'd even consider it and would probably want some other sidelines - perhaps doing some coaching and some freelance web/programming work to go with it.

Played a frustrating session last night with the limited time available - lots of fish around but just couldn't get decent hands at the right time. I even 7-tabled for a while but ended up down 0.3BI in 800 hands. When I didn't hit my cbets were being re-raised and when I did hit a hand there was no action :( Anyway thats all just variance and I won't be dwelling on it.

My FT Slippers arrived but are definitely not built for for a Scottish winter!
