Excellent month

Kinda sorta. I feel like I'm back from the wilderness now. I think I have figured out a couple of major leaks in my 1/2 LHE 6 max game that appeared when I went to the HUD way back in September/October or whenever it was. I fully expect to kill 1/2 in April and be taking shots at 2/4 in May.

I'm excited about poker again although oddly this new tighter style (keep it simple stupid) makes for some boring sessions.

$50 NL was very beatable until I would tilt after receiving bad beats. I switched back to LHE after dropping $300 in 3 sessions. I would get up over $100 then take a couple of brutal beats and then tilt away $200.

I am currently reading Elements of Poker which is helping out. A lot.

My bankroll is still where it was as of last update but I have made about $325 in the past two sessions at 1/2 LHE since adjusting my play. I FEEL like there's no way I'm NOT going to make $900+ in April. We'll see.

Here's my March 1/2 graph. I feel like I closed some leaks in the last 3,500 hands or so.

Overdue update

I waited to update until I had a good session. Good is defined as a +$100 night. It took me over a month to post this.


Went on tilt during the billionth hand promotion night. -$50 at .5/1 LHE. -$150 at 1/2 LHE. -$300 at 2/4 LHE then -$250 at 30/60 omaha hi/low.

Sat down with $400 at 30/60 omaha hi/low and immediately lost $360. Worked that back up to $393 and was gonna quit but noticed I was off the blinds with AA double suited. Raised to $90 and got 2 callers and folded the turn on a QQ35 board (was up against low draw and quads). I quit after that.

Just moronic stuff.

Finally booked a winning session last night at $50 NL. I'm up $21 on the month after losing $800 in February.


I'm gonna try to stick at $50 NL this month and cash out anything over $1,500 - I'm at $1200 now.

I was gonna play 15k hands of .5/1 LHE but it only took me 2k hands to figure out that I couldn't do it. Too much of a grind.
