I know I haven't made as many updates, as I wanted. But i'm really trying to increase that from now on.
I haven't been putting in enough time away from the table. Making stupid decisions, like playing too long, playing too high and worst of all, my game selection. Actually, the problem is that it doesn't exist. For as long I have been playing HU PLO, I haven't quitted a player - mainly because of ego problems. I really don't think, that I was worse than those I played - and I still believe this to be true - but the rake just take makes i massivly -EV.
When we talk about the rake, the rakeback I got paid from october, actually pulled the month up in the green digits :)
- but still not good enough
This month started way better! Was up 11 buyins, just to drop it back and way more. Atm I'm down 17 buyins for the month, but still making money with rakeback - not ideal, but I'm working on it :P
Had I really sick 1 table session against a decent player. He had some sick aggro tendencies after he lost his stack - gambling to get deep. But I ran pretty good against him - really thought about quitting him, but really though he was tilting way too much, so decided to delay my sleep a little more.
after running godmode against him in allinpots, he got some pretty sick setups deep - so thanks for destroying my ev-line :( It was all on €50PLO, so that just make it worse :(
ATM my bankroll is 700 usd - So I moved down to 20PLO only. I'm currently talking alot of HU PLO with some mates on skype, but if anyone is interested, you can add me as: femhundredeogtyvevildepirater
So I obv need to change these things, which leads to the following goals:
- tighter BRM: was taking shots to light at higher stake, when I followed a fish
- Better table selection: quitting players earlier in games where the rake takes all the value
- More study away from the table: more movies, hh analyze and forum post
Finally, I was introduced to a new term last night:J.F.D.I.
- Just Fucking Do It -
So I sure will!
