So, it’s almost December what should be a great month as always. I’m not really a big fan of Christmas besides the eating part but I am already looking forward to New Years Eve! I’ve been to parties at NYE but generally don’t like those as I rather spent my NYE with as many friends as possible. I haven’t made any real plans yet but I’ll probably go to a party nearby so I can drink as much as I like and crawl home!
December for me will also be a month to wrap up my SNE chase and that is of course a special moment as well 🙂 I’m planning to give a small SNE party when I make it which will be nothing else then having a drink with as much friends that would like to come over. Because of the “bad” planning of Christmas and NYE (both in the weekend) it will probably be during the week, so we have to limit ourselves to our hangover treshold!
Unlike November in which I worked every day in the weekend except yesterday, I have no weekend play planned in December. I’ll probably play some since I don’t want to risk having to put in to much play during the last week but at least I can do some nice stuff during the weekend again. The fun starts on Tuesday when I’m going out for diner to a real nice restaurant with my girlfriend and family since her little sister will go to Sri Lanka for a couple of months. On Friday I’ll have a combined birthday party which promises nothing else then alcohol and fun.
The week after I’m going to the casino with my nephew. I hardly visit the casino and usually we are not there to poker but to do a little blackjack and a drink. I don’t really like the Dutch casino’s (since Vegas) but a evening out with my nephew is always fun. In Vegas I’m okay to gamble it up but normally with my nephew (who is 19) I try to give the good example so I’ll probably not go broke on this one. The 17th of December is a night I’m really looking forward to! We’ve planned a night out with the Las Vegas crew, which is actually the first time I see Mick again and I didn’t go out with Bob as well since Las Vegas. We had a blast in LV but since we’ve all been busy with various stuff since then, this will probably a night where we tell our memories of those 8 days over and over again. Trust me, we have plenty of memories to keep going all night long and it will be fun to do some bar hopping in Amsterdam as well, which have been a while.
On the 23rd of December I have a concert of Caro Emerald which CD I’ve played over and over when it first came out. I really like the vibe of her music and if you haven’t heard of her yet you should check it out. She’s Dutch but doing very well in Europe lately and you might know her from a Bacardi commercial song.
I’ll have to continue playing some poker as well and I’ll probably have a little less then 100k VPPs left to play in December. I doubt that will be a problem but hopefully I’m going to play better or just run like god, since November was a real pain. I even lost money after rakeback which is really crazy but I don’t really want to talk to much poker. Just for the record, I lost $14.000+. I just don’t want to pay to much attention to that fact at this moment 🙂 Only thing left to say about it is that I really need to change my flop play (or post-flop play in general) but I just can’t seem to adept and seem to have completely lost my connection with playing a winning style of poker. When reviewing my hands I just don’t see it, which is a lot worse then playing bad because you are not focused or made some errors.
Yesterday I’ve been to Awakenings at the Westergas in Amsterdam which for me is really the best party out there. I just love techno and I’ve been dancing from 01:00 till 07:15 without drugs or alcohol. The last 3 hours was completely what I hoped for in which Ben Sims, Paul Mac & Surgeon blew the roof of the Westergas. I had a good night (day?) sleep and I’m ready for another session tonight. I have to work on Tuesday so I only have 1 “night” to play this week and I’m ready to wrap up this chase!
To give you an idea of what Awakenings is:
