A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT ME:
Been marked by multiple failures in my life. Some caused by lack of knowledge and experience, others for being too ambitous, some for not working enough/not wanting it enough.
Life has taught me a few things and what I know is I do not want to work for somebody else. I don't want my possibilities to be controlled by someone else.
In the past few years I've had to close down my business and currently I'm unemployed. Spanish Economic crisis has a lot to do with it, but now i firmly believe that path was not for me.
I'm just getting over a back injury that has had me away from any physical activity for nearly 2 years. I have some limitations but at least i can do some swimming, running, cycling and very moderate gym exercises. I used to love football, but those days are over for me.
Now my only goal and motivation is poker. Every day, poker is my life. I want nothing more. I am focused and I'm ready to give it all I have... and if it's not enough I will find a way to work harder and make my vision a reality.
Backing down.... giving up... are no loner options.
This is what i want and until i get it i will let nothing distract me from my pursuit of happiness.
CURRENT RESULTS SINCE NOVEMBER 2012 IN POKERSTAR.ES
Starting from February i will post results, specific goals related to improvement of certain aspects of my game, hands, comments and some off-topic stuff aswell to make it less serious.....after all... Why so serious?
Seeing as this blog is called Nash, Trash & two smoking barrels i feel the need to make a small tribute to one of my favourite Guy Ritchie films:
Thnx for passing by!
