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.
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.
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.
Total Profit : -$16
