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).

yay… just got a GSOP Bucharest package on OnGame. It’s a $1600 buy-in four day nlhe freezeout mtt, with 5 nights accommodation and $700 spending money. Adding the package to this month’s online winnings makes January 2011 my best month yet, despite running pretty rough most of it.
since getting back from vienna, two weeks ago, i played ~850 games, with a 500 game breakeven stretch. that’s pretty painful, and kinda fucked up my game for a while there. but then, had an upswing these last 4 days. up ~35bi in 200 games.
last week, i bought myself a wireless keyboard & mouse kit, webcam and a new printer… just felt i needed a small reward… also bought an 120gb ipod classic yesterday, and right now i’m moving my music collection to it.
i’ll start taking shots at $100s and $200s in february. 5-6bi shots at each level, though, ‘coz i need most of the profit to pay up some of my debts and dad’s operations (he’ll have to get cut again, because of Craiova’s shitty medical system).
a couple of days of peace, that’s what i need right now…
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).
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.
