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).
july husng garphs
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

Rakeback : $447
Live profit : -$1250
April 2010 Total : $2600
Just came back from Bucharest. Lost 900RON (~$300) playing my usual loose-dumb cash game “strategy” (which I tend to realize it can never be profitable, not even session-wise… it’s just that STUPID). Played a 250+25RON (~$90) super satellite for the 2nd Romanian Poker Cup. Lost. Played a 35+10RON (~$15) 20 people rebuy tournament in a new fun location just outside Bucharest. Won 890RON, making a deal HU (after ~10 hands).
Poker Profit : ’bout tree fiddy
Total loss : -$390
*note : – very fun trip.
- won’t be playing any live cash games in the next 6 months. Agreed ? Agreed !
