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
