A combination of lazyness and a few things I needed to do today. I have been slacking a bit this past week. I have been running better and often only playing one session per day. I have to get that...

September Goals

August was a good month for me. I want to build on that momentum in September. I should be able to make way more money this month by simply moving up. Moving up to a game I will crush as well. 4 goals.1) Play every day2) Play 200k hands3) Jog every other day4) Move up limits by the 15th of the month at...

Results today were outstanding. Reformulation of my game again. I don't think nit mode is optimal. I played a 15/9/2.2 today. Basically how I was playing before the experimenting in the past few weeks with a few wrinkles.New

Handcuffed by endless bad beats and coolers. What is this thing they call a heater? I haven't seen one since the 1980's. I can either run bad or average this month. Thats it.

Should have folded KK preflop in one spot where a guy cold CIB 4 betted. I 5bet shoved, and he obv called with AA. The other shorty in the hand also had KK, leaving me basically drawing dead =/

Day 24

Hands Played Today: 3638Total Hands Played: 152473Hands Needed: 47527Pace: 159998 (-7525)Jog: No (11/20)Comments:Today I played nittier than I have in years, at 12/5/2, and the results were good. I only ran about average, but a more passive preflop approach and fit or fold, with lots of laydowns and pot control postflop, seemed to work. The idea is that they don't fold, so just...

I had my first real losing day ever at the limits I play, down 2.5 buyins. I was setup nonstop to lose money for 5700 straight hands. I don't have words for this month anymore. Then again, I really don't care anymore either. I'm kinda past...

I really have to drill it in my head to stop trying to run over a bunch of droolers. They don't fold anything! I get called by king high routinely, even on the river. I have run extremely bad this month, but I...

Not that they ever aren't good at the limits I play. Playing well lately though, which is of course so much easier to do when you are running decent.Really focusing on key hands more. No rash decisions. Also, making...

Just played one session where I ran about average. I think the biggest demotivating factor is the low limits I play. It frustrates me b/c I know I'm a solid winner at much higher limits. And I feel like I am wasting my...
