Only try to control controllable things...
Continued from 'From hobby player to full time pro'.
This blog will focus on the changes I have made gradually through the last couple of month, in the quest for achieving the needed skills, for having poker as my only source of income.
There's a reason why most, if not all, top players in skill games are fit. If not, you simply don't have the energy to do all the hard work needed for reaching the top and staying there. Time and again I have been told that I had to get in better shape, to be able to hold my focus for more hours when playing. Increased stamina is also needed to get through more poker training.
I'm a 1.75 m tall guy and at the beginning of May I weighed 92.9 kg. That's a BMI of over 30 which puts me just over the line for obesity. A normal weighing person has a BMI between 18.5 and 25. My weight loss goals are first to reach 85 kg (BMI=27.8) and then 80 kg (BMI=26.1).
