strange enough, i knitted up some balls that i could use when trying out $200 turbos on ongame. turns out i’m not a good taylor. tried my best, but ze gods didn’t grant access to the higher stakes. no problem, tho, despite the bad turn of events, confidence is back up, now that i’ve readded $50s turbos to my daily grind. SOON, YOU BASTARD HIGHER STAKES. SOON !
meh, forget about it (with that mob accent), life’s great. seems like spending a bit more time with gf makes swings easier. hopefully i’ll be back to them turbo 200s by the end of the month.
played three live plo sessions in my hometown. damn that game’s so addictive… ended down ~$300 overall, but it felt good.
managed to bump up the average buy in a bit in july, but nothing fancy ’til the start of this month, when i told myself i’ll play less-to-none $50s and strengthen up for the $100s and $200s gambol. i’m slightly up prerakeback in august, but it’s not that big of a deal.
i played this year’s Wallonie Series of Poker in Namur, Belgium, with no result. Was down ~4kE for the trip, but got ~1.8kE from a friend for a 10% swap after he chopped the highroller 1kE event. i was kinda frustrated for the trip poker-wise, but i sure as hell had a lot of fun with darie (mtt player) and juncu (cashgame grinder). they’re two opposite fuckers.
swings at 200s hurt a bit more than my usual 10-15bi swings at lower stakes, but i gotta stay focused. this is my fkin’ chance to climb the stakes, so i can’t afford to nit it up playing lower anymore. i did it for way longer than i should’ve.
my mini staking stable seems to be getting on the right track. i have four 180man turbo horses and a husng grinder, all on ps. had to dump a couple of guys due to poor results. also got scammed by a what-i-am-ashamed-to-call fellow romanian for ~1k or so, but that’s a risk i have to assume when doing this. i have all his personal info and will eventually post it on a couple of poker forums, so he won’t be stealing anybody else (ps sn [wanasay]1.0).

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.
The last two days have been an awkward variance experience for me… I’ve only been playing $21 and $31.5 heads up sit’n’gos… All in all I’m glad that I managed to recover from my yesterday’s ~20bi downswing.
