Bankroll and Results Summary - September 2013

I suppose this is the painful bit !

September Graph in $





September Graph in bb



It is not pretty let's be honest. It covers my comeback to poker (after 5 weeks working 16 hour days on my student houses) where I broke even(ish) at NL10. Then I took my 6 buy-in shot at NL25 which started very well and I got up to around $850 before getting my butt handed to me on a plate culminating in me dropping back down to NL10. I posted 9 hands where I lost most of that money and some good players told me I played them ok and they were coolers. This was some comfort but my honest conclusion is that I am not ready for NL25 at this stage.

I am happy to play NL10 and try hard to get back to $750 to take another shot, I hope to not have to move down to NL5 obviously.

I will work hard as always but will cover this in the new Goals For October posts.

Bankroll = $572.40 (Net profit/loss after RB = -$150.81)

Good luck to me!

Re: WARNING!!! Turning pro is HARD ****ING WORK!! And you will see this ITT...

In hand 3 that you commented on folding pre is very bad, you should be calling much worse. x/r flop is probably bad because if someone can hand read they will realize you don't have sets and vs someone who can't they'll probably just station you down with top pair.

Oh dear, do we have to!!??

This is all the cash game hands I have and is from August 2012 - I was very much just playing for fun then though whereas later on I have started working hard on learning etc.



----------------------------------------------------------

This next graph is since I started this thread (I did have another thread but the goal I set was really amateurish!). Looks like I am getting worse! Actually I am so much better player than I was then (still poor obv) but does not look like it!



----------------------------------------------------------

This graph is from my stint at HUSNG which is somewhat easier on the eye!

The fact that you don't wanna look at your graphs and be ashamed makes me think that. You have to face the results
ps. spoilered the graphs in previous post. maybe that helps

edit: also saying "Looks like I am getting worse! Actually I am so much better player than I was then (still poor obv)"

Ah cool, I wondered if it was that! I was just trying to be amusing and it obviously did not work! If I was really ashamed/embarrassed I would not have posted them, I would have done what most losers do and say "I lost my database" hahahaha!!!

What I will say is that I am not too concerned about results. I know that I am not very good yet. I only just about beat NL10. So long as I use strict bankroll management and keep working this hard I am sure the financial side will take care of itself.

I really appreciate your input Deeepz, thank you.

I'm not any more amigo. Since I started playing at 04.30 hours I had to come back to 6max as there just was not any traffic on Stars or ipoker at that time. Also sometimes I need to leave tables quickly (young kids) and sng format is not good for this. I really liked HU though, I think it accelerates the learning process. Would like to play HU cash in future I think.

GL man stay strong.

Hi fella.

Yeah, for sure it is tough. I guess most people in my situation would just play for fun or something but that is not in my make up. I see no reason to not go for being a big money earner in this game. I am realistic about what that takes so we will see if I have got it. I am confident.

At the moment I try to keep it to three tables so two to four I guess. I am just working on improving my basic understanding of the game so I think this is best. I have had months where I played 9-12 tables also though. I think that is a skill worth looking into but I think the way forward for me right now is getting into spots and finding out ranges and how to play against them. I try to keep posting hands, reviewing and talking to some poker friends.

Thanks for nice comments and dropping by.

Love the amount of hard work you're putting into this man. Would love to know some cliffs of what you play and how much you're up/down (hopefully up). Keep it up!
