I see i havent updated for nearly 2 weeks so bout time i put sommat down in writing. After the 1st week i reduced my game to a planned 5 hours ish per day 7 days a week for the last 2 weeks. Something seems to have clicked and, whilst running good especially 2 of the last 3 days, i know ive been playing a hell of a lot better. The big difference seems to be plo where im sure im getting into better spots and playing better strategy against individual players.
Just having a little analysis now before i head to the pub as im finished early for the day.
Done nearly 50k hands of plo and plo hi lo this month. The first 20k were not much more than break even but that was earning about £200 a day in rakeback for 10hours ish play (basically the first week).
The next 30k hands if i follow either the run good profit line or the ev line are pretty much as steady as can be for the 5hours per day period. The ev line shows about £3,000 profit and my £100 a day in rakeback would add to that obviously.
Ive been worried about complacency but seem to have been conquering that so far. Overall for September im sat on +£4,829 but receive a £200 bonus before i start tommorrow so say £5,029. Total rake so far for the month is about $6,200 so basing it on the 50% cash out im targetting that would be another £2,000 ish. That said my graph shows im around £2,500 above ev. That said we all feel we are due a good run and ive been "dry" now for many months as stated in previous less positive posts. Anyways hoping ill have another cracking final week to the month and will report back here after that.
Just looking at my hi lo and plo split and about half my hands were hi lo and actually the results are steady but nothing to get excited over at all. As said above that doesnt surprise me as i know ive been golden and playing better in the plo games for a change, gnnna look at those now.
.5/1plo went 11 buyins down ( i suspect the 10hrs day period ) before finishing 6 buyins up (ev line).
1/2plo steady up finishing about 9 buyins up (ev line).
Both of above 8-9k hands, 2/4 im 3buyins up nearly but only played under 1000 hands.
Prob over-analysing now anyway its all good stuff to view.
AND FINALLY (IN CAPITALS AS ITS CRAZY)
I PLAYED A HAND ON 1/2 LIMIT HOLDEM 6 HANDED WITH 67HH
BY THE RIVER WE HAD CAPPED BOTH TURN AND RIVER 3WAY AND THE BOARD SHOWED
1 GUY ONLY HAD KQ BUT OTHER GUY HAD QJHH AND I LOST TO A HIGHER STRAIGHT FLUSH WHERE WE BOTH HAD USED BOTH OF OUR HOLE CARDS. SHAME NO BAD BEAT JACKPOT, THEY USED TO HAVE ONE A YEAR OR SO AGO BUT NUTS REALLY ESPECIALLY WHEN U CONSIDER HOW LITTLE HOLDEM I PLAY ANY MORE.
