January Stuff

This could change but currently ive made the tough decision not to post profits or losses for the month totals any more. Obviously im still recording them so if I change my mind this could appear again.  This may kill the blog completely but for the time being I intend to at least post once a month for a general summary.   Still playing highly volatile caps games almost to the points where its unhealthy but most of the time it makes me play more time on other stuff alongside and its given me a new buzz about poker which I have probably not felt for 5 years.  The swings are crazy and I actually finished the month today with the wildest variance of the month.  I went up $5,000 really fast then proceeded to gradually lose it back before losing even faster and ending up with a small loss !  

I've raked more this month than probably any other month in my 10 years of playing poker full time.  I wasn't planning it on Jan 1st but got into these games so much a few days in so i've just been flat out.   I made Supernova on Pokerstars yesterday and roughly across all sites raked a combined $23,500 total.   No intention to go for elite as i'm probably playing unsustainable hours but do intend to do a similar figure next month.

That's another topic I should mention and if I wasn't so lazy I would do a proper post about it but i'm just too busy at the moment to even consider it.   Tomorrow is my 10 year anniversary of playing poker full time.   How its all changed over those years and i've still got no plans to go back to a 9-5 job any time soon. 

February time to run good please, remarkably upbeat even though ive had a horrible bad run of luck this month.  gl all

Best Worst Start To A Year ?

This is all a bit surreal.   I couldn't lose and was hitting everything for the first 3 days of January.   I peaked at a profit of £3,600 (not including rakeback).   That was until today, seems ive had my worst day for .....well....without looking back I would estimate about 5 years.  I may still play later and will edit if it changes but seems ive lost £4,100.  What I don't understand is im always angry or depressed after such a day but im literally almost laughing at it.  Wish I could bottle this attitude for the year !  I think its just because its that extreme and I was already up most of what I lost so no harm done ? LOL   I seem to have developed an addiction for 3/6 NLhilo CAPs on stars and this is where most of the swings have been but its so much fun (almost like a casino game!).   Todays loss is all just ev loss (ie run bad).   Gonna do some graphs for the year no, doubt ill post them here but interested to see wtfs going on lol.   Volume and attitude are good anyway so that's more than half the battle !!!

Ha make that £4,250 lost another 2 buyins on caps as I wrote this :)
Yeh basically graphs show I would be about £1,500 better off if I ran level to ev.  as it is im -£670 currently, shame .   Rakeback around £550 already , to put that into context I normally only manage that figure about halfway through the month !
