Making the Most of Limited Study
I love poker. It is my favorite hobby. I never get to play as much as I want, and I am not committed to getting as good as I know I can be. I’m trying to increase my live MTTs to 1x per month this year. My study time is also low. I decided to be smarter with my limited studying this year.
I am reading a book, taking notes in a notebook about the book and then reviewing those notes before I play each tournament. Showing up 30 minutes early so I have enough time to review notes (I have a couple of post its for ranges at short stacks to review in the notebook as well), use the bathroom, and register with time to get comfy before the tourney starts.
It was the first time in a long time that I feel like my thought process changed a lot in the tourney, reviewing situations before the card was dealt and what I am looking for to happen for me to get involved.
It was only 4 pages of poorly written notes, but definitely helped me take in the info. Here’s to gradual improvement and better results in 2023.
