In my last blog, I spoke about the importance of mental health and today I want to reveal how it has helped me in my poker journey. I have been running deep in a lot of online tournaments for quite some time now but I just wasn’t able to convert them in title wins or even finish in the top three.
I believe the reason behind this string of deep runs without wins was mostly due to low concentration level brought on by fatigue from long hours of grinding, along with the lack of proper routine. I felt like all of this had a significant impact on my cognitive ability which affected my gameplay.
I decided to buckle down and work on improving these aspects and was successful in doing so. I now have a very positive feeling about my game and that has been evidenced by my recent win in PokerBaazi’s The Endeavour that I shipped on Tuesday. Besides that, I also finished runner-up in the Gayle Storm on Adda52 last Sunday. All in all, it definitely feels amazing to get a win under my belt after such a long gap. However, I still feel that I need to keep working hard to better my game.
I also want to throw light on the recent re-branding of AceJack to PokerGuru Staking and how it was played a major role in taking my game to the next level. PokerGuru Staking and my mentorship under Aditya Agarwal has helped me become a more confident player. I would also like to thank Vikram Kumar and Kartik Ved for their continuous trust and support in my journey.
Signing off now, I hope to continue my good form so that I may be able to blog more about the same and give upcoming players a chance to learn from my mistakes and successes. Good luck to you all. See you at the tables!
