WSOP-2013: Week #32

It's Sunday, so time for a recap of this past week's progress for the 2013 WSOP:

Executive Summary: Spent the last week on a very busy and stressful business trip, so I didn't really have much if any time to study. With a little more than two months left before my event of the WSOP, I'm going to have to find some way to buckle down and get more prep done, but my travel schedule is getting worse, not better. Anyway, here's what little I did this week:
  • Strategy Books Read:
    • Read some more of Winning Poker Tournaments, Vol 2, which is a study of end game hands. Like V1, this one is chock full of useful information.
  • Videos Watched:
    • None watched. I did, however, listen to three podcasts, including two Thinking Poker episodes, one of which was an interview of Ed Miller. This one was quite interesting in that he talked about how he categorizes opponents. In his "Playing the Player" book, he uses categories like TAg and LAg, but in the interview he said that if he had the book to write over again, he'd probably label his cash game opponents by way of the types of mistakes they make. E.g., opponents that make folding errors (i.e., fold too much) and those that make calling errors (i.e., call down too much) and so on. Interesting.
  • Fitness:
    • Diet: This was a pretty bad week on the diet front, with way too much crap food, beer in the evenings, etc.
    • Exercise: Went for one stinkin' walk the entire week, and nothing else.
  • Tournament/SnG Results:
    • Online: None played. I did get in 3-4 simulated WSOP events on airplanes via the DD Poker software, but it's not that good/realistic of practice.
    • Live: None played.
  • Other: I'm in town for a few days, but then am back on the road for two full weeks in a row. Worse, it's Europe this time, so jet lag will be added to the poor diet and low exercise thing. Ugh.

All-in for now...
