re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

"Be really good," as in, "lose minimum every time you're on a downswing"?

That, I have to work on. It's really tough to realize you're on a cold streak mid-session, and find the discipline to fold sets etc.

"be really good" as in understanding that you only control your decisions. You decide, when to play, where to play, how to play.

"be really good" as in not letting results, particularly recent results, bother you emotionally, thereby hindering your decision making.

What suited fours said.

Getting mad in losing is kind of like getting mad that you missed the left turn light.

Shouldn't be folding sets because you're on a cold streak. Shouldn't be doing anything because of a cold streak.

First month of playing 1/2 live for more than just a few sessions, ran stupidly hot to say the least

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Had a pretty solid month to start the year as far as volume & shot-taking go:

January 2016 stats:
1/2: 13 sessions, 80h 5m, +$2,005, $25.04/hr
2/5: 2 sessions, 8h 20m, +$925, $111/hr
Total: 15 sessions, 88h 25m, +$2,930, $33.14/hr

I hit almost 90 hours while working full time (~50 hours a week) and with only 2 weekend sessions (spend most weekends with the girlfriend). And while I am really happy with the volume, I think I may have overdone it at some times and forced some sessions on not a lot of sleep where I played pretty terribly and turned what should have been a small loss into a big loss.

So next month while I want to keep the volume up, I think I may need to cut back a bit in favor of more consistently playing my A game and getting more sleep than I did last month. I will also be focusing a lot more on table selection, especially when taking my 2/5 shots.

Good month Dizzy. Were your 2/5 sessions on the weekend? Saturday and Tuesday are probably the best nights for 2/5 at your room.

Thanks man, I appreciate it.

One was on a Monday, where I noticed a super soft table that was deep and had an open seat, I ran reaaallyyyy good and made +$1,805 in just over two hours.

The other was a Tuesday at a much tougher & less deep table where I definitely should have looked to table change or just gone back to 1/2 (or gone to bed..). Instead I tried to force the session and was pretty card dead and played pretty bad in some spots and lost -$880.

Going to be looking for more spots like session 1 to take my shots and not like session 2 in upcoming months.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

It's my understanding that January is historically a good month for skilled players.

Since using a session logger starting February 8, 2015 [nothing but 1/2NL]

Meaningless Stats:

Last week: $45.96 pr hr - $1752.00 38.12 hours
Last month: $28.23 pr hr - $3977.00 140.88 hours
Last 2 months: $24.47 pr hr - $5974.00 244.11 hours

Oct 1, 2015 - Jan 31, 2016 -$19.93 pr hr - 528.7 hours

Meaningful Stats:

February 8, 2015 - January 31, 2016 - $14.02 pr hr - 1371.3 hours

Feb 2015: -$762.00 98.83 hours -$7.71 pr hour loss
Mar 2015 - $13.16 pr hr - $1520.00 - 115.47 hours
Apr 2015 - $12.00 pr hr - $1525.00 - 106.12 hours
May 2015- $09.51 pr hr - $1009.00 - 106.12 hours

At this point I seriously considered going back to work p/t. However, I can now attest to the fact that my discipline was not nearly as good as it is today. I thought it was good......but I know better now.

Jun 2015 - $20.15 pr hr - $1853.00 - 91.96 hours
Jul 2015 - $19.65 pr hr - $2164.00 - 110.14 hours

Sweet! Broke the $20 pr hr ceiling & on my way!

Aug2015- $12.74 pr hr - $1427.00 111.98 hours

Oops!

Sep 2015 - -$0.51 pr hr - -$38.00 74.46 hours
Oct 2015 - $17.87 pr hr - $2517.00 140.85 hours
Nov 2015 - $13.52 pr hr - $2031.00 150.27 hours

What a roller coaster ride!

Dec 2015 - $19.34 pr hr - $1997.00 103.23 hours
Jan 2016 - $28.23 pr hr - $3977.00 140.88 hours

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Does anyone have enough hours tracked separately to really know if playing at nights and weekends is really all that more profitable? I play almost exclusively during the daytime with lots of regulars. I can play some evening hours if its really that much more profitable.

What I do know about playing during the day is that its pretty easy to know where you are in a hand with these old guys. If I have AK and bet a K76 flop, and anyone over 65 calls me they have KQ or TT. If they raise they have 76 , 77 or 66. It makes for low stress game but still profitable because they also fold way too much and dont even know what a LAG is.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

I was kinda wishing January would never end. I bested my highest volume month of 2015 by 20 hours (111 hours in January 2016 vs. 91 in May 2015) and destroyed my 2015 average of 70 hours per month. Predictably, I have begun to totally mail it in at work as I become more disenfranchised and plotting my rapidly approaching departure.

January
Profit: $14,150
Hours: 111.2
Hourly: $127.2
Sessions Won: 14/18 (78%)

Biggest Win: $3,500
Biggest Loss: ($1,700)
