Hands Played Today: 6968Hands Played January: 6968VPP Count: 677Well the new year is here and the grind begins again. Slow start because I've been busy but I did get started at NL25 today for almost 7k hands and I should be good to go with big days for awhile now.I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this blog. I'm probably going...

Planning out 2009 and more random NL2

I haven't been playing much. I decided to play some NL2 just before I slept today. Playing poker when tired is always a terrible idea. I just wanted to quit as soon as I started. So obviously I then go on my biggest downswing ever at NL2 (maybe second biggest) of 4 buyins. This is over literally a million hands I have played...

Random NL2 and my future with poker

Not even sure the days. Haven't played in two days now I think. NL2, some amount of hands the two days previous to that. Won of course. Pretty pathetic ending to 2008 but I haven't found the consistency all year. On the bright side, this year still has been a decent step forward. I crossed the million hand mark for the year a...

Back to the December Grind

Was going to post yesterday and forgot. Yesterday I played 8500 hands at NL2 to get back in the swing of things. Ran ok and made the standard 11 buyins or something. Today, back to NL25 for 7800 hands...ffs when can I ever have a chance there? I was stuck 5 buyins within my first 600 hands. 5 different allins either before the...

NL2 is hard

So I've basically taken the past week off. I don't want to get on a lengthy abscence again just b/c, I don't have to play or don't feel like playing. So I played 1500 hands of NL2 today at the standard 40ptbb/100. Its kinda the least I should be doing on days when I don't feel very motivated. Its completely free money and...

Ok day

Feels like the first 60k hands at NL25 have been mostly running bad. KK vs AA is just ridiculous in my opponents favor this month. Its like 10-2 now. Hard to make up that many buyins. So after 60k hands I have a winrate of 2ptbb/100. I believe its double that at least under normal circumstances. But what can you do.Today I played...

Why I don't play tournaments...

This morning I got up just in time for the 20k VIP freeroll on Stars. I run pretty hot and have a bunch of stuff hold and I'm top ten in the thing for hours. I'm thinking maybe this is the time. I could really use the 3k first place or making the Final Table even.Once it gets down to 500 or so...

Discouraging day

I did what I said I was going to do. I didn't look at my cashier all day. I felt too tired to put in the 3rd session, so I played 7100 hands. I felt that I wasn't running good through most of the day but honestly didn't know even ballpark where I was at. Well, I was down 4 buyins.I went through...

Another short day...

I only played 3500 hands today. I made 6.5 buyins. I continue to run pretty good. I definitely ran hot today with a Won $ at SD of %65, which is way above normal.One thing I did today that I haven't done since I was playing on Full Tilt a year and a half ago, is this. I did not look at my...

Shippin it

7200 hands. Just under 8 buyins. Managed to get 2 AAvsKK situations in my favor today. Only one against. Monthly total is 4 against, 2 in favor. Getting a bit better. Running decent in general. Got to get more hands in. I want that $650 bonus cleared by Xmas at the latest. I have 10.5k FPP and am at 1641 VPP for the...

Off we go

Into December. Had a lot of things to do today so only got 4500 hands in. Still could have played more though. I have to really challenge myself to play a ton this month. Anyways, I ran pretty decent and made 5.5 buyins playing a 14/11/3. I made two bad calldowns in big pots. I have to recognize when they are going nuts...

November Totals

I ended up playing 176k hands which is pretty solid. Second most hands ever in a month, closely behind the 185k I played in August. And I didn't even play the first 5 days of November. Unfortunately the bulk of it was at NL5 but at least I ran decently well there. 25k of the hands were at NL25 and I ran pretty...

Running bad still

Played 9500 hands or so today. Took a ton of beats. Not hitting sets, getting coolered etc. Was up 2.5 buyins or so. Been the same for 14000 of the 17000 hands I've played at NL25 now. Just gotta battle through it.Got to Goldstar today and will get Platinum next month so the FPP's should start coming in faster now. Only have 6k...

Moved Up!

Didn't get a chance to blog about it last night. But I finally moved up to NL25 and had a good first session making 4 buyins in 3300 hands and clearing a bonus for 2 more. I will be able to get to Goldstar before the end of the month now.I am going to grind NL25 through December and get to Platinum Star...
