april results


+$2167. almost exclusively $50husngs. wasnt getting much action so.. [ ] sample size. also could have done much better - the amount of money i lost to fishbowls is ridiculous.

almost all hands are 50NLHE (crushed everyone) and 2 consecutive sessions of 50PLO (guess where..), all headsup

bottom line: +$2085
i'm only satisfied with my nlhe cash games this month, i could have done much better in other games.

but i shouldnt complain i guess -that's my biggest month so far

march results

ok here are my graphs for March. my internet connection at home has been screwed since last week so i haven't really played last week and couldn't post my results earlier.

husngs $20-$30:

some nice profit here ($41.1/hr). "but how much did you lose?", ok $50 husngs:
no money hu, everyone's solid? not really. there are 2 big downswings, vs 2 different (bad, overall losing according to sharkscope) players. stories were similar: i sat down and waited for an opponet for ~40 minutes, lost my match, clicked rematch b/c i didn't want to wait that long again, but then lost again. they were bad, i knew it. i never quit when a bad player agrees to play again, sometimes they suck out and i go on tilt and may spew a few buy-ins but this tactic has made me much more money in the long run. they were standard lagtards, the opponents i like the least since i play very loose myself so this type of opponents contribute most variance to my overall results. i definetly didn't play my A-game and lost more than i should have, but then i tightened up and it was pretty much one-way. in both cases they lost 2 husngs in a row and run away. meh.
note to self: never quit fish unless I'm playing poorly. stop loss? nope, still think that's a bad idea.
the problem is sometimes it's hard to tell if i'm making dumb plays during the game..
the good thing is that i beat all "leaderboard" regs who played with me at this level :D that's variance i guess...oh and there's still alot of fish at this level (though it's "highstakes" according to ftp lobby) - ont guy nicely shipped me 5BI(almost $250!) in about half an hour..sick life :)

finaly, cash games:
every month i play 10nl 6max and run baaaad. i should stop doinh it probably, but still i have to work on my ring games as well. last month i discovered superfun game - hu plo, that made me some $$, but rake was terrible. some guy sat down to play with me at a deepstack table. he had ~62$ but won a couple of BIs in the very beginning. he was terrible so i kept playing with him and eventually got his entire stack. i was sitting on a huge pile of cash(~$270) so swings were also huge, but then i realised i won only ~$29 off him. that was $33 of rake over 220 hands.

bottom line: +$1261
i dont want to set any goals yet b/c i 'm still not confident with my internet connection (as a failed to achieve my 2nd, "volume" goal).

p.s. tiny micro brag: while my cable connection was down, i played some 1cent-2cents plo mastering a special move that i like to call "ace on the river". it proved to be very effective against the infamous luckbox :D

fulltilt support is the best

today I was playing $50 husng, I was leading, got disconnected, when i finaly logged back in i had 140chips (blinds: 25/50). needless to say i lost this one. i emailed fulltilt ("omg wtf rigged!!" etc) and got their response within 20 minutes:

We've reviewed tournament ######### and found you experienced Internet connection issues while playing. As a courtesy, we've credited your account with the buy-in for this tournament in Tournament Dollars (T$), 52.50T$.

half month update

1st half of the month has passed and i've met half of my monthly goals (i.e. 1 goal): make $1k (brag, kinda). mostly 30$, some 20s and one 55$ hu miniftops event (epic fail vs superfish, game #133 followed by lifetilt till game #139). i'm not even close to 250 games (1/2 of 500games, goal#2) and i don't think i'll have that much time this month to achieve it. so maybe i'll change my plan. after all i've made 1k, time to press F2("save game"). i should probably stick to 30s..or move upto 50s..or try cash and spew it all :)
btw, i applied for the mount robusto project and got an email few days ago from my "sergeant". we're a group of 10, looks like most of us play 50nl to 100nk cash and we're having some sort of assignments soon. i still don't know what it all means and i can't even watch the mount robusto video update..but we'll see

donkaments +$713:

cash -$259:

bottom line: +$454 (sigh!)

cash: continuation of 50nl shot-taking from last month..didn't end well. i didn't play badly though, mostly coolers. i suspect i might have been owned near the end (red line drops). the rest is 10nl and some 25nl when i was bored with husngs.

donkaments: unfortunately my graph doesn't look like a boner, like last month. after about 100 games i've printed enough $$s to take another shot at 50nlhu, this did not end well, probably i was tilted and i def didn't play my a-game. also, i started 2-tabling husng so it might as well be learning curve. i was struggling with 2 tables in the beginning for sure! then i was running bad. oh and i didn't play much last week (too tilted/tired after the olympic games - can't believe one night i slept less than 2 hrs to see that misery), so i may say i had a break from poker and now i'm ready to conquer new heights.
goals for the march:
-play at least 500 husngs
-make at least $1000 (10%roi@20s)
(?)try more 30s and maybe 50s
(?)work on 6max/hu cash
i may be overrolled for 100nl soon so playing 20s will be huge -EV for my bankroll. i have to move up somewhere ldo..maybe hu cash+coah, i don't know yet. there were 2 propbets on BBV: 15k/month@100nl and 30k/month@200plo. both guys achieved their goals. i wanna move uuupppp toooo...
