Sept 2013 Review

Good solid first couple of weeks, poor boring bad 2nd half of the month including 4 or 5 events in WCOOP without a cash and only 1 semi deep finish with a 1/3 of field left.

Final profit £2,294.  Don't sound great but a shocking last session on Thursday dropping £1,000 (haven't played since as been away on a long weekend and wont play tonight as hungover !) and ~£800 in mtts with no cashes brought me down somewhat. 

Not sure what October may hold, hopefully wont get as bored as I did again in the 2nd half of Sept.  Haven't ruled out playing live next weekend/week a bit but wont decide on that for a couple of days yet.  Similar plan to September I expect although I am looking at graphs etc now to try and come up with some form of sticking to whats been working the last 1-3months and not wasting time on the wrong games.

WCOOP And Month Update

Been a fairly steady month so far I guess.  Have got bored at times playing only pl hilo but I needed a bit more rake on my 1st site to clear a bonus by 27th so have played some plo too the last few days.

Sat at about £3,000 inc rakeback this morning but have entered the WCOOP for $615 so far with a $200 addon to come assuming I make it 2 hours in !  Could be an expensive day but wanted to play the 5card 6max pl hilo event although would have preferred 4 cards ! 

Already failed on 2 events but had enough points to play those for free, also missed the 9 handed 4 card pl hilo one due to being too hungover, oops :)  Might update later if gets interesting although not expecting anything right now.   Chopped a ridiculous pot now vs shortie as I write this :(

edit...lasted 6hours , never got a big stack but held my half average stack well for a long time.   exit hand to solid guy tilting/gambling after he had lost 2/3 of his stack and only marginally covered me.

reraise pre with AAj47 1 suit and flop 966xdd.  he leads pot ive only got 2k more than that and call what looks like an obvious flush draw and is vs A8839 with 1 suit of diamonds.  turn 3d and I miss low/fh outs.  was biggest pot of the mtt and got it in good so happy enough with exit.  still only 29k when average 40k but would have given me a shot, finished about 2/3 into field 132/436 pays 60 :( 

deffo not playing 8 game mtt in 20mins , wish it was on a different day, feel like I need time off but deffo switching off for at least a couple of hours or maybe the rest of the night.

August Figures

Short post, rake adjusted figure of +£2,030.  Seems to have turned the corner after dropping nearly £2,000 quickly at the start of the month.  Peaked at about +£4,000 before that horrendous day a week ago mentioned in the previous post.   Level ev on 1 site, $3,200 behind ev on the other 2 combined so overall im happy with how ive done as £4k month on level ev is good month for me. 

Now had 6 full days off from playing poker, will probably resume tomorrow unless I sit for a short session in a mo.  Sept plan is similar to August although there could be up to $2k in buyins to WCOOP in the middle of the month
