Long Day

Almost 12k hands. Didn't run particularly well but it wasn't terrible either. I think I just realized partway through the day that none of the shit that happens each day even matters. Its just cards and I'm always gonna be at the mercy of them in the short term. Tilt is just fucking stupid. There is no point in feeling like the world...

During the past 2 months, overall I haven't played near as much as I was before. But I have been playing a fair bit so far this month.I don't currently have any explicit goals like...

Guy has been wanting to play a lot lately, so that ridiculously huge game has been running quite often. The funny thing is that he is up the most of anyone, around 600k in the past two days,...

I felt like I was playing damage control the entire time. I ended the second session breakeven and actually felt like that was a major success.I folded KK preflop twice today to nitty regs. That didn't keep me

Few too many set over sets and bad beats near the end for any great results tho. My winrate this month is only a bit better than last month at this point. But I haven't played my best at all times either. One thing I...

Honest reason for not getting going right away. Stars had a big update requiring patches to several scripts and PT. I have no complaints about how I'm running once again. Think today was my 2nd biggest day winnings wise ever, at the...

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.

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 =/

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...
