Sadly I have also decided to pretty much quit poker and resurrect my previous career as an analyst/ accountant.
There are a few reasons for my choice, mainly a need to get a mortgage (a legit one I mean) which is not feasible as a poker player. I also miss the working atmosphere. Grinding poker can be a bit too quiet and isolated at times. I still love the game but not as much as when I was a recreational fish. I look forward to becoming a part time spewy whale again and tormenting the regs!!
I will play maybe every other day or so in the evenings for maybe an hour and a little on weekends but my daytimes will be spent job hunting and eventually working once I score a job. I have already had a couple if interviews and met a few recruitment consultants so hopefully I will find a role within a couple of months.
A big thanks to all of you that have followed me and supernova125, especially all of you that have commented. The blog is now over 4 years old and was certainly a fun thing to do. I am not sure if I will post again but maybe I will just throw out a monthly review and an odd hand history here and there, who knows...
I am still around on email, Twitter and Skype for those who would like to keep in touch.
Things are continuing to go reasonably well in 2014. I am winning for the 3rd month in a row.
The roll is building nicely and I hope to hit my bankroll target level in April and take a decent shot at NL200 with 10 BIs to lose before I drop back down. I need $1,300 more.
I also want to experiment with NL200z 6max a little more. I want to just play 2 tables in a few sessions and see how I get on.
As I move up I think it may be wise to start to cut down on tables/ volume and concentrate on quality. For example if I simply win 1 stack a day at 200 then that is like $6k in a month. I won over 60 stacks this month at smaller levels.
The final numbers for this month are as follows:
122,777 Hands Played
24,315 VPPs 85,103 FPPs
+$3,447 (Cash Game Winnings) -$299 (Tournament losses)
