Thanks for following along man, yes it's always fun to look back and look at the progress.
I actually lost 10k last night, but this month has definitely been a breakout, securing both my biggest pots and biggest month. I of course ran well, but I've noticed a pretty substantial increase in my game the past month or so. I'm thinking about the game at a high level right now and it feels good.
This was the first month where I pretty much just played 500+ and limited myself to 6-7 tables mostly. Despite poor volume (only 28k hands), I played A game for the majority of my hands. I also had a 3 day bender after the circuit event where I grinded about 20 hours of PIO, although I've slacked on studying since then.
I also have started working on my PLO game to OK results, absolutely fun game and I'm finding much more complex than Holdem. I'm definitely looking to put more study time in there for the future as well.
As hinted above, I'm not going to do much more continuous posting. One reason, is I'm now playing against players who are very good and giving them insight into how I play is definitely not +EV. I also don't want people to get a good idea of my financial situation.
That being said, I'm not ending the blog
it's just more of a hiatus where I won't know if my next post will be in 5 days or 3 months. I will also let everyone know when I'm doing a stream/podcast with BTS, maybe some Vegas excapades, or maybe I run deep in the Main and have everyone sweat.
I think a few pages of posts ago, I said I don't think I'm very good at poker. I do think I'm a strong player now, but I've learned how relative skill is in poker. I also know how good the best of the best are and I'm nowhere close to that skill level yet, but it's a good goal to work towards.
Through the course of both my blogs, I've gone from Poker Pro wanna-be to microstakes grinder to struggling reg to broke to mildy successful to successful and it's been a journey I have really enjoyed. Want to thank everyone for their posts and words of encouragement throughout the year, they've been incredibly helpful.
