Hi mate, thanks for the kind words.

Cliffs as requested....

Bankroll is $592.79.

I started with $300. Do not get me wrong though, most of this is bonuses and rake back! Without those I would be around break even I think.

There are some graphs in this recent post here.

I have an 83k hand sample at NL10 beating it at 0.2bb/100 (running 12 buy ins under EV fwiw) and I took one shot at NL25 so far and got my butt kicked .

Anything else you would like to know, please do not hesitate to ask.

Proud moment!?

I just had this reply in a hand history thread I made on BestPokerCoaching.com from the owner/coach on that site...



Made me feel good that someone notices how hard I work. Thought I would add it in here for nostalgia in years to come!!!

Woah there tiger!!! This thread is going nowhere!!! Even when I play nosebleeds I will still update it .

Glad you are enjoying it, I am writing today's update atm and will post later.

Can you answer me a question (seeing as you find blog interesting) please? I am not a big fan of posting results too often but I appreciate that it helps people to remain interested etc. How often would you like to see BR updates? Once per week? Every 10k hands? I don't know. I am happy to post them of course. And do you like to see graphs? Just bank roll figure or what? Thanks.

Yeah agree with above
Graphs and BR updates are really interesting (even though it's results oriented, we see how you progress)
Weekly graphs would be cool!

Weekly Update 14.10.2013

Weekly Progress Update 14.10.2013

Bankroll: $630.74. (+$49.31)
(Move up to NL25 at $750, could play NL16 but did not like it before, opinions welcome.)

Graph for week



Comments: Well, firstly what a fantastic time for Deeepz to ask me to do updates!! Obviously this graph is not the normal shape!! And before anyone calls me results oriented or whatever I was more than happy posting my losing longer term graphs above and will continue to post losing graphs (probably next week lol!).
I do feel like I am getting better and at quite a good speed too. A lot of this is thanks to Typoking for the sweat sessions and also a lot to the fact I post so many hands on forums.
Long may this continue!


Goals
Really happy that I am keeping the work ethic going, this is what will get me to the higher stakes. All goals are going to target.


(Disclaimer: I am the least results oriented person you will likely find! I have been asked to do this as followers find it interesting. So long as I am at the micros all I am interested in is working on getting better (ok I don't wanna go bust either ). Of course when I get to NL200 this might change.)

Played 43.6 hours (62.3%). Month is 50% old. Happy to be ahead, going away for weekend for wedding anniversary later in month so will need to keep this up.

Goal 2 - Get 10 Reviews/Sweats In October
Done 5/10 = 50%. Had a good hour with Typoking last night. Learned some good things - he is awesome in 3b/4b situations (as well as a lot of other things!).

Goal 3 - Do Thorough Review Of Part 2 Of Coaching
Done 30mins of 90 mins = 33%. Getting a little behind on this one but it is something I will catch up on easily I hope.

Goal 4 - Post 2 Hands To Forum Each Playing Day
Hand #63 - TT in CO v BTN, should have barrelled turn, cbet river as played?
Hand #64 - AQo (5 handed) 3b CO v UTG (fish), 3 way to flop and UTG XR small...

Goals Update 16.10.2013

October Goals Update 16.10.2013

Goal 1 - Play 70 Hours Total In October
Played 46.3 hours (66.1%). Month is 53.2% old.

Goal 2 - Get 10 Reviews/Sweats In October
Done 6/10. Another really good one with Typoking last night. Some really good spots which are probably very standard but I just never saw them (or was too weaktight to care!). I will pay him back for these when I get to NL1K.

Goal 3 - Do Thorough Review Of Part 2 Of Coaching
Done 30mins of 90 mins = 33%. Hmm, this is not so good. Taking opportunities to play and sweat is pretty lame excuse. I will find time this weekend to hopefully complete this goal in one go.

Goal 4 - Post 2 Hands To Forum Each Playing Day
Hand #65 - 86s in BB, I call 4th in with fish around and flop OESD and FD and think I should gii?
Hand #66 - KK in BTN v CO, 3b and he calls, he donks pot on J76r and turn too...
Hand #67 - 99 in SB v CO, ok to call with BB to act? Dry flop goes XXX so bet 2nd pair ott to take it down, 3rd pair otr villain bets when I check...
3 today!!

Goal 5 - Comment On 2 Hands On Forum Each Playing Day
#25 - OP calls AKo oop UTG v CO then bet calls 3 flush river with two pair...
#26 - OP has KJo calls BB v SB and raises 954tt flop and thinks about barrelling 2 blank ott (yeah I posted in an NL50 thread )

I think its worth mentioning that I am my hottest streak ever!! 6 winning days in succession!! I would love to get back to NL25 again soon!!

Anyone following played much NL16 at Stars? I played it before and did not like it (preferred NL25, seemed fishier) but would like to hear other opinions.

Yes. I think 25Nl is fishier since the "fish" will buying with lower bb at the 25NL.. instead of sitting with 100bb at 16NL.

Gratz and the good run!
