(This is a cross post from my blog degnovic.blogspot.com).
Well, that didn't go as I hoped.
I started out the Oktoberfest at PKR by playing all the events the first couple of days, and actually did very well, but often came close but no cigar. It sucks, but as I proclaimed before the start of the series, the fields is bigger and therefore the variance is too.
I finally feel like this will be a good time to start at cash games. If I continue playing the Oktoberfest, all I'm going to do is chase or catch up to make it a good series and I don't feel like doing that. Instead I'll make October come to a close, and start off November in style with the switch to cash game.
To round off October it was obviously a great
month and by far my best month ever. I earned a nice profit and cracked
PKR's top-200 MTT. Before this month I was just a recreational loosing player
(still recreational, of course), but this month - of course driven by
the good results - I took it more seriously than ever. I want to take
that with me into November.
I'm going to (re-)start my cash game career at PokerStars. I feel like I've accomplished a lot of what I can accomplish at PKR, but there's still more to accomplish, so I will probably still be playing there from time to time, and maybe one day again with a greater volume.
As I've written earlier on this blog I love playing tournament series and whenever another one comes up, I'll probably plan on playing. Next month 888 Poker has it's biggest ever tournament series, but this one I won't be playing, as they do not have a Danish license.
This first month with cash games (which will be at NL10, as I first of all want to prove to myself, that I can beat), I won't be making any goals or predictions, as I just moved away from home (which I'll write a blog post about, and how it effects your poker, in the near future) and I'm going to cover the WPT Copenhagen in the middle of the month, so I don't know yet how much volume I'll be able to put in. I'll be ready with both goals and predictions for December once we got to that.
And by the way: huge congrats to Greg Merson who today shipped the WSOP Main Event. A great player, and seems like an allround good guy, who I suspect will be a great ambassador for the game.
