Re: 180 to 1 Part II

Hey, how did you go about finding a staking deal if you don't mind me asking / not sure if you included it earlier?

Re: 180 to 1 Part II

This week volume has been epic. Since Sunday I'm up on 151 games already which is great. The run bad continueth for now but I'm only down over 10BIs so far this week while still running insanely bad across the board.

Had a HU last night where I lost a 60/40 FTW and a 3rd the night previous when I jammed A7 into AQ in a standard spot.

Just cannot get any momentum going at all atm.

Disappointing month on the cards unless I hit some heat fairly soon!

Re: 180 to 1 Part II

Some heat today at last!

Yes I know, I said I wasn't going to play but the Mrs decided last minute to take our eldest daughter to the cinema in the afternoon. So myself and the little lady ate some lunch and I put her to bed for her nap. I watched the meditation video and once concluded I fired up a session.

Things were going pretty normally until I hit a hot patch somewhere in the middle and then everything started going right! Ended up with 4 games ITM busting the first two 17th and 11th.

Two final tables were polar opposites. First one I entered with 100K and a massive chiplead. The other I had 5BB and was 9th. In the end of both I finished 2nd. I was horribly unlucky in the first. Losing AK to KJ FTW. In the other, I had a mountain to climb HU and I didn't even get close!

$124 in the green today - badly needed!

College

I mentioned briefly last week that I was thrown a complete game changer when my boss offered me the opportunity to go back to college part time and study a degree in Retail Management Practice. After looking through it and speaking with my wife and family I have decided to grasp the opportunity and I will return to college after 10 years in early September.

As I've said it's only part time - I have 10 days before Christmas and 9 days after including examinations. I'm not really sure what to expect. It's strange thinking about going back to education after a long gap. Things have changed quite considerably since I was last there - I'm married, have 2 kids and I suppose a purpose to see over the finishing line!

Interesting times ahead...

Poker

This weekend I hope to play tonight (30 games) and then tomorrow (30 games) and I'll have finished pack 3 of my current stake. I am spot on break-even in that at the moment and let's hope I can turn some profit in the last portion of the stake.

Have a fun day!

Re: 180 to 1 Part II

Week in review:

August seems to be flying by and I cannot believe I am here typing another review so bloody quickly!

This week was massive for volume and I broke my personal best by 1 game! It would/could have been by a lot more but for some extenuating circumstances both Friday and yesterday but I'm not really bothered about breaking records. It's more about playing and playing well.

I turned a profit this week although in the end it was merely a few dollars ($8.08 to be exact) but after the first few weeks of the month it's nice to be in the green for a change! I'm still not running all that great (especially HU where I already mentioned I lost a 60/40 and 75/25 that would have given me $80 extra but it's part and parcel of the game. I guess all I can do now is keep plugging away and hope that things improve.

One last week left in the month and a mountain of climb if I'm going to end in profit. I'll be happy though if I can get some of the $320 back!

Week Stats:

Month Graph:

Planned Schedule:
Sunday - 50 games
Monday - 20 games
Tuesday - Off
Wednesday - 40 games
Thursday - 20 games
Friday - Off
Saturday - 50 games

Hoping to squeeze 6 more somewhere in that to reach 750 games for August!
