WPT Ca$h camp

I'll be at the WPT Ca$h camp at the Commerce casino at the end of the month.


You'll recall that I went to the 2 day "normal" tournament camp in January (thanks to my lovely wife Scarlet), and got some good validation and help tuning my game. I also met Crispin, who helped tune my game further.

Scarlet and I went to Reno a couple weeks ago and while I didn't have any tournament success, I actually was up in the cash games. But that was, for the most part, playing $3/$6 and $4/$8. I made $25 playing no-limit during one session, but I was out of my comfort zone. I know I can succeed at cash games, but my aggressive tournament style is not correct for cash play, and knowing that I am not where I need to be in the cash game keeps me uncomfortable because of the higher risks.

So unlike last time, I am not really seeking validation of where my game is. Rather, I know my game is not where it needs to be and I need to tweak it a little, get more comfortable, and then I'll know I'm one of the sharks rather than one of the minnows.
