You're better off reserving that in advance when you win than worrying about coming up with $1,000 for Christmas or $1,000 for summer camp. If you have a good September, set that aside. Etc.

Don't put yourself in situations where you need to win to pay for your life.

But, for now, you really should focus on building the roll.

Schedule cool stuff to do with your wife/family on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights.

They'll be less people to compete with at the movies, restaurants, malls, etc, etc, etc anyway.

Maybe she'll like that?

You can still sacrifice a Fri or Sat night from poker every now and then to..
That's what my ideal schedule would look like even though I run so bad on weekends lol. The only problem is when she works I stay home with my 2 yr old so I cant start at noon. Thanks though as that gives me an idea how to make mine. I'm going to start logging 8-10 hour sessions. How do you build your mental endurance for this? (I average 7 hours per session)

Make sure you take a 30-45 minute break to go get some food during the session. (eat as healthy as you can to... if you have a losing session then eat like **** to ease the pain.)

If you're used to 7 hour sessions, take a 10 min stroll around the casino after the 7th hour and review the session. If you think you're playing well/running well and the table conditions are good, extend the session another 3 hours.

If you're satisfied with your session, table action has died down, and you think your wife would like you home by 1am to bang her, the go take care of that.

Np. Good Luck.

When the run bad comes hold tight and remember to keep playing the way that got you to your great win rate right now.

If you feel tilt, get out of the casino and get home to your family, they're the reason you must succeed/not tilt with only a limited roll to start this all off.

One 1k monkey tilt losing session is 20% of your bankroll gone.

Guard that 5k with your life.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

My run good streak at 1/3 NL live has finally ended.

I just ended a 17-1 streak (where the only loss was for $12 over a 12 hour session). Went 7 winning sessions in a row, then the $12 loss session, then followed that up with 10 winning sessions in a row (a personal record).

For this once-a-week recreational player, this streak can seem like a lifetime, as it actually stretched exactly 4 whole months (my last lost before the streak being on October 9, 2012, and then finally ending with a loss on February 9, 2013).

All told over this streak: $12,075 over 194.25 hours = $62.16/hr = 20.72 bb/hr.

Ended it with a rather mundane 78bb loss (most of it coming when I lost a flip in a big pot). Then followed that up with a rather terrible 224bb loss (almost half of that coming when I decided to hero call down with 2nd pair and was horribly wrong on my read).

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

Skimmed the post looking for stakes but didn't think to check at the top

Impressive, curious, we're you involved in any monster pots where you held up or sucked out?

Eating like **** right after, session review, a good nights sleep, and a good workout the next morning gets me ready to hit the felt again.

When I have a gf, sex or a good blowjob helps as well.

All in all my last couple gfs have been fun, but -ev for life goals.

I'm down around $1400.00 I think in 120 hours since I purchased a poker tracker for my phone.

Looking forward to starting at least a 5 session win streak tonight though.

I am capable of making all the right plays, I just have to execute better and get a little bit of run good.

Surprisingly, no real monster pots come to mind. I don't really track pot size records, but if I recall, the biggest pot was against a spewmonkey where I flat a preflop raise with JJ, then spewmonkey limp/reraises 55, I just lol flat again, and we get it all in on the turn on a 8842 board, I think for around 200bb each total (this hand also helped me set my single session record of +$1598). Other than that, no real monster pots come to mind.

I will say my win streak should have ended at 9 as my last winning session in the streak I sucked out in a decent pot as a big underdog. I 3bet a gambooley extremely loose opener with AQ, a more sane person coldcalls the 3bet and then leads 1/2 PSB into me on a Q high board; he starts hand with less than 100bbs so I decide it's a ship vs fold situation, I decide to ship, he has KK, whoops, but I suckout. That hand enabled me to book a smallish winning session in my last session of the streak.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

I'm up $862 in 32 hours (7 sessions) for an hourly of:
$26.88/hour
at 2/5 and 3/5 = 5.4 bb/hour
but here's the fun part:

Standard lol Deviation is: $435.19/hour

So I have NO IDEA whether I'm winning or not.

OK, I know, I just can't prove it yet.

Edit: This year.

4x100 BB stack
For the most part if you get into a hand, you will have room to maneuver. Still gives you room to set mine over standard raises.

Having said that, you will need to run well in your first few sessions or your toast no matter what you buy in for.
