The beginning session of my foray into taking poker seriously have gone well.Â I still have a problem with wanting to quit early and book a win, and today I had a couple tough spots/coolers to bring my session into the negative.Â Surprising few fish playing during the early and mid afternoon today.Â When I sweated lynchmob there were more fish playing at NL50.Â I've decided to take shots at NL25 once I get 500 into my bankroll, and as soon as I drop down to 400, I'll grind NL25 again.Â Here are how the sessions went:
NL10 -- 214 hands +2.73 57 mins played
Monday -- 675 hands +47.29 177mins played
Wednesday 1016 hands -7.87 261mins played
The metric I measure my game by is $/hr, meaning I am averaging....
496.6 mins played and 42.15 total won = 5.09 an hour. 2.21bb/100.Â I believe that is close to my true winrate, but I'd like for it to be closer to 4-5bb/100.
Â Â Â Â If I am not to exhausted tonight after training I'm gonna get another session in.Â If I AM too tired, I'm going to take some notes while watching a video and post them here in my blog.Â I may end up doing both, and hopefully not neither, but if we spar tonight I'm not gonna try to grind with a headache.Â I've only got 8 hours of poker in so far this week out of my combined goal of 45 (including my IRL job) but I work friday and I plan on grinding as much as possible the next three days.Â I'm gonna need more than 10 hours th, F, and Sat to get to the goal, so hopefully I can get in a good 3-4 hours tonight.Â Wish me luck in training.Â Left hooks to the ear = bad.
