October 2014 Review


Long time no review, well it's back this month!!

Low volume, part time results are probably not going to be as interesting as what you were used to but I'm still on the poker journey.

My VPP goal for the year is still 200k and I am still kinda on pace for that.

I played quite a few spin and go's this month. They are definitely good fun but a huge rake trap and I doubt many will beat them.


The final numbers for this month are as follows: 

25,739 Hands Played
5,783 VPPs
20,241 FPPs

+$2,214 (Cash Game Winnings)
-$124 (Tournament losses)
--------------------------------------------------------------------
+$2,090 (Total Month)


The Ytd numbers are as follows: 

934,652 Hands Played
177,744 VPPs
622,104 FPPs

+$6,936 - Jan
+$3,100 - Feb
+$4,980 - Mar
-$925 - Apr
+$2,003 - May
-$2,385 - Jun
+$3,119 - Jul
+$1,427 - Aug
+$2,348 - Sep
+$2,090 - Oct
--------------------------------------------------------------------
+$22,693 (Total Year)

Stag, Wedding and Honeymoon....

I have played like 6k hands this month which is pretty laughable :)  I have a legit reason though, I was busy getting married so took some time out..!!

It all started with my Stag in London. A few of us hit Laser Wars at a place called Bunker 51. After that we hit the town via the Partybus which is basically a nightclub on wheels that takes you to 5 other clubs along the way. This is the Stag night crew:



It was then the big day and I married my other half of 4 and a half years, Claire. This is us during the picture shoot just after the vows:



A couple of days later we flew out to the luxury 5* Azul Sensatori Resort which is in Mexico just 20 minutes south of Cancun. This is the place:



So, I'm back now to hit the tables again and chase that 200k VPP mielstone which is going to be tough as I need to get hands in everyday while working full time and trying to have a social life.!!

See you on the tables.

NL100 Comfort Zone

It's been a whole week already in September. I haven't played much poker at all, probably less than 10k hands.

The days that I have played though have all had mostly NL100 in my sessions. After a week I can say that I am liking my new set, 18x tables of FR at 100.

As long as I don't go on some huge downswing then I can see myself staying here in order to target my new primary goal which is to play NL200 as my main game.

So far I'm up only a few BIs but with a FPP bonus due this month it should not be too long before I get a shot at 2hundo.

Back In The Rat Race + End Of Year Bonus


It's been a couple of weeks now that I have been working a full time 9-5 job. I'm just getting used to waking up around 6.30am which is tough considering the random times I used to get up and all the lie-ins I would have when I wanted to.

Being a poker pro is a great life if you can reach a good level. It would have been great to make SNE one time but I guess that will never happen.

I had a few years grinding but that's over now and I have new goals. I may return to it in a few years time or even earlier if I get canned from the new job.

So now poker for me is a recreational pass time. The first week I played an hour each day after work. In week 2 I pretty much played no poker at all until Fri/Sat. I am now playing 18 tables of normal FR with almost no Zoom. I have been playing all month at NL50. From September I will move up to NL100 and play between 8 and 12 tables of normal FR.

My goals for the rest of the year are to win a little each month, get to 200k VPPs and to try to move up slowly. When I previously worked full time I was an NL200 reg also playing NL400. I had no money worries because my work covered all my bills. I find myself in that position again so why not try to shoot for higher..!! Lets spin this up...



See you at the felt...

Flash Update

It been a while since I last posted and I'm not yet fully back to blogging. I've been really busy decorating, job hunting and organising my wedding, stag and honeymoon. 

I have been trying to get a few hands in and recover after my worst month ever last month. I have had soooooo many interesting hands histories to post but haven't had the chance yet. I will try and post some soon.

Here is July so far:

9 Years, Many Battles, Worst Month Ever..... 5 Days To Rescue


I am feeling pretty bruised and battered from this month's battles on the felt. As it stands I am over $2k down and have almost no chance to get back to even as I only have cash online for 25/50.

I will however attempt a challenge and that is to not have my worst month ever in almost 9 years of playing poker. To do this I have to win around $800 in 5 days. Considering that I am losing $$$ almost everyday this will be very hard.

So far away from a bonus too.

Update


I have hardly played poker in the last 2 months as I have been busy with job hunting and exam work.

I have just started putting in a little more volume this last week or so. Things are not going too well.

After I blew $25k on a shiny piece of metal I decided to cash out some of my roll. I didn't really need to do this as my life roll is very healthy but I felt a lot better for doing so.

I had around $10k online iirc. I left myself with around $3.5k and started a new aggressive bankroll strategy. I started using a 40/25 system. This would in theory allow me to move up at a rate at which I have never done so before, if I could win :). It started well, I got up to $4.2k and insta added NL100. I was also mixing in 6m with FR.

I then lost over $1k in a day at NL100 6m and then continued to lose at both formats and at NL25, NL50 and NL100. I soon found myself staring at my Stars cashier with a not so sexy $1.8k roll :((

When you have say $10k and you drop $2k or $3k its no biggie and you can comfortable keep calm and carry on. When you are on a tight roll you can start to get nervous and that's how I felt. I love the upswings with an aggressive approach but I found it tough during the downswing. For this reason I will build my roll again to a healthy level and scrap the 40/25 system and just add levels when I am ready. 

I haven't put a cent into poker in almost 4 years and I like that stat so I will continue to build organically at NL25/50. I'm in need of one of those $1.6k FPP cash bonuses but I am mile away from it and it takes longer when your not playing NL100.

As a recreational I ain't too bothered with a slower growth as most of my time is now spent doing other things.

With regard to the job hunt I am in new territory in terms of applications. Previously I have been in the job market on many occasions and I never had to make more than 20 applications before having lots of interviews and then getting job offers. This time I have just passed 250 applications which is just huge and it has resulted in only 3 interviews and no job. There was a really good role 2 weeks ago where I made the last 2 out of 110 people and had to prepare a detailed presentation but annoyingly came second. I will continue the grind...!!!

Later
