  So after June's debacle, i wanted to get back on track in July and just focus on one game.. i was less distracted by mexico this month and ended up breaking my personal record of 'hands played' in a month.. i'm still not too happy with my results.. i had a couple notable downswings.. like one a few days ago, where i dropped something like 22bi's in a night.. oh well... .. i feel like a dinosaur still playing fifty, but everyone has different financial situations.. and mine, at the moment, requires the slow-and-steady with a lil less variance...

pretty sure i hit my personal 1-day best today..
at some point i was up just under 27bis @50nl.
played a massive session to begin with...

tables were really good and i was running like:

... was gonna crash after that, but being jacked up on dr. pepper, red bull, and 'boost', i couldn't fall back asleep... after a 45m nap i ended up playing two more sessions.. i was up a couple of buy-ins on my last one but sadly, the 'fuego' left the building...

...good day nonetheless.

while i wanted to stay in and play yesterday, nati's and eagles wanted to go out and get muy borracho'd with the locals... i awoke today to find some hickeys, an empty bottle of don julio blanco, and a blue mohawk on my head.

well played mexico, well played indeed.

self portrait. i call it, 'me in mexico'.
