octobers suck !
again with a delayed post. i blame me for everything. i should’ve gotten my driver’s license, but i’m lazy. i should’ve passed my college year, but i’m lazy. i should’ve went to gym, but i’m lazy. i should’ve stopped being lazy, but i’m lazy. notice the trend.
anyways, nothing much outside-poker happened these last months. i feel like i’m trapped in my room, like i fell in love with its temperature and odor. my fkin muscles are dissolving ! get out, alik, move your fucking legs for a while. NO !
on the other hand, i’m pretty proud of myself for not going to pokerfest bucharest (1kEUR bi + another 6-700eur expenses) and staying home for ze online grind.
i tell ya, novembers rule ! best month ever, thus far. i’ve been playing some good pokers, main reason being my awesome run. these things go hand in hand, it seems. meaning i have not yet evolved into a good poker player. regular swinger, it’s what i am. stopped playing on my pacific account (horrendous rng… altho i kinda miss it sometimes) and currently, i’m waiting for the stars.fr confirmation letter blablahs, pour commencer jouer au pocheretoilles avec beaucoup de gross poissons (AYE !)
the good regs avoid me, it seems, whilst the weak ones keep joining. i’m ok with that.
finally added $300 regspeeds to my daily routine. 125bb starting w/ 12min blinds iz teh fkin nuts !
staking is still “meh”. down ~3k last month, up ~2k this month from it. still pumping.
sleeping schedule is way off. i’ve been taking these codeine pills (Codamin) for my endless migraine. i should get treatment for my sinusitis, but i’m lazy.
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).
july husng garphs
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
