Been an up and down week, but still excited to say all week was at 25NL. Started up a couple buy ins. Then a -4 BI swing. Then up 4BI, then down 6. Had a nice +8BI swing today though to finish up 4BI for the week.
Iâ€™m also excited to say that my red line has been slightly positive for the 8000+ hands I have in at 25NL. Not that I am obsessing with my redline, but I mentioned in a previous blog that it appears that my red line is a very good indicator of when I am focused and not autopiloting. Iâ€™ve been feeling pretty dialed in lately so hopefully that is the case. I can say previously when I was playing 25NL my red line was no where near positive. At this level I think the biggest key is value betting well. If you are value betting thinly people are going to fold quite often and your red line grows.
Hopefully I can straighten on my blue line and get off this roller coaster during the next week. Either way Iâ€™m over 20BI for 25NL and feeling good. If I finish the month well I think Iâ€™ll be able to officially say my Stars to FTP transition is official.
