Iâ€™ve been focused on the grind all month so far and it has started to pay off a little more consistently. In fact, Iâ€™ve only had one losing day (and I won it back with extra profit the next day). The game is midstakes PLO, mostly, but Iâ€™ve had a few successful triple-draw sessions too. Iâ€™ve managed to put in a little more than 12k hands, which is about on par for my goal of 30k in the month. Though 2k of them were from rush poker, so they donâ€™t quite count, even though I won a little bit :). Hopefully I donâ€™t jinx myself, but I think my results are consistently attainable (i.e. close to my likely true winrate) so I plan on keeping it up.
Interesting side note: at Rush $50 PLO, the rake burden is close to 17bb/100, which seems ridiculously high! Compare to: 5.7bb/100 at 2/4 PLO or 3.2bb/100 at 5/10 PLO. Let me know if you guys find similar results. If thatâ€™s the case, FullTilt is making a killing in rush games!
This weekend Iâ€™m heading back to Durham for a college friendâ€™s wedding in the Duke Chapel (baller!) and Iâ€™ve also arranged to go to the ACC Championship game, which will hopefully be awesome! Quite a nice little weekend holiday. Sadly, I wonâ€™t get any chances to make fun of UNC, because they are already out of the tournament. So it goes.
