Interesting things happening this week… I failed to grind the 400 games i planned to, but the swings were just terrible… I just can’t seem to have the mindset necessary not to tilt when I’m being two outered each match for like twenty games…
Absolute fail happened. I don’t really think there’s any winning player out there that experiences this kind of loss at the $30s… It’s like a ~23BI downswing, in a day. I wouldn’t call it a downswing, because I’m pretty sure my game quality morphed into some kind of monkey tilt… I just couldn’t stop. What’s wrong with me ? Well, I don’t know. Maybe it’s just plain variance kickin’ my ass. Up and down, up and down…
This week I made a couple of payments (phone, internet, electricity, food, sharkscope/husng membership, renewed about 10 domains etc.) and tomorrow I’ll be payin’ my college tax ($250)… Also, I’m really thinking on buying a larger monitor (currently grinding on a 19? Samsung), this one being first on my “want”-list (~$300)… I hope i’ll make the order by the end of this month. If I manage to turn out a <$3k profit (which would be very hard to accomplish), I’ll be buying two of them
I started playing the $10.50SO and $22 $5k SO Heads Up MTTs on PS, currently trying to build a strategy that should work over there, ‘cose my high postflop aggression factor doesn’t seem to help a bit in these knockout tournaments.
So, this week I played 355 husngs, with an average stakes of $29, average ROI of 4% and a total profit of $356… That’s bad, ‘cose I was up ~$650 at a time (graph below).
I started April 2010 with the thought of playing an average of 50 husngs on a daily basis (~1500 total for the month). Obviously, I didn’t manage to do that, but I’m pretty happy with my results for the month. Also, april has been the first month of this year I’ve finished as a winner at the MTTs. WHOA !
I kept withdrawing $ almost everyday to put up and pay some of my debts, but didn’t manage to scrape much, because I’ve spent more on bullshit.
These being said, I will only be paying my ~$700 interest this month, and keep grinding the $20s, $30s and maybe move up to the $50s by the end of May.
I’ve also made a propbet with a fellow poker player and friend, Bogdan. Whoever reaches $3k profit from sngs faster (me only playing $20-$50 husngs and him playing his $3-$12 fulltilt 90-135man KO and Rush sngs) wins a week’s trip to Egypt in a nice all-inclusive resort by the Red Sea. ’til now I’m owning him. OBV !
I’ve settled on playing a minimum of 1200 husngs in May (400x$20s,600x$30s and 200x$50s). Let’s hope I’ll win at least 30% more than in April.
Why does every sentence I write start with “I’ve” ? Because I suck.
By the way (no “I’ve”), I’m really thinking on getting some coaching for the 6max cash games in the next couple of months. I have found a very good coach, and rrrrrreally want to learn.
HUSNG profit : $2773
MTT profit : $630
Rakeback : $447
Live profit : -$1250
April 2010 Total : $2600
ok. First week gone… Only played 159 games since i came back from Bucharest, with very good results… I obviously ran good on this timespan, but I really feel that my game is starting to shape up… I’m feeling pretty confident on my abilities at the moment, and I hope I’ll be keeping myself this way.
I didn’t play a single hand of live poker, and I’m not thinking on doing it for the whole month. No decent homegames left in Craiova that I know of…
Bought myself a Samsung G3 external 1TB HDD (~$120) to finally clear out all my PC and laptop data… I’ll be formatting both the next couple of days, and try to make HEM work on Windows 7 Pro.
Also bought these headphones for $30… I like them a lot… I love feeling the bass smashing my ears apart. Would definitely recommend to all music enthusiasts…
From now on, I’ll be adding a song and a picture to the post, if I’ve been profitable.
I’d love to be able to write tens of thousands of words talking about a subject, debating for long hours on various subjects, but damn my brain’s dead. I’m braindead… deadbraindead.
