Poker Epiphany

Why I am a bad poker player: I get bored too easy.

Do I think poker is boring? Nope, not at all - but I don't have the patience/focus/stamina - whatever - for the long haul. I am good for a couple of hours tops, then I need new scenery and start giving away chips.

It is a little better online where I can multitask, but at a live table, choking on the smoke, forget it. I have played with SG and his friends a few times - the first few hands I do fine, by about third third buy in I am out of it and they all get their money back.

It is hardly worth the drive to a casino for the length of play I am likely to indulge in - unless SG is playing (which is true of most live games). Once he busts out or moves to blackjack, I lose interest. And tournaments? Forget it, if there are more than about 50 players involved it is going to take tooooo long.
