Lately I have switched from 6max Cash to HU Cash, back to 6Max and now Iâ€™m switching again. Iâ€™ve always used HU SnGâ€™s in the past as my â€œfunâ€ game. If I wanted to play poker but felt I wasnâ€™t in the state of mind to play my main game good enought I played HU SnGâ€™s but played them badly. Now Iâ€™m acually going to give these a shot because these games can be really profitable at the Mid level stakes. Iâ€™ve played almost 200 of them so far and really like them. At first I had some big leaks but fixed the biggest ones like playing a little too loose OOP, and a few others. I feel good about my post flop game. So while trying to get a little used to them I read a lot of posts on the 2p2 HU Forum which is great, some really good posters there and I also watched some HU SnG videos which helped.
Before watching the videos and reading posts I lost 15 buyins..I ran really bad but also was making some big fundemental mistakes. Since then I have won 27 buyins and feel my game has improved a lot in only 2 weeks. Right now I am rolled for the $33 SnGâ€™s but will keep playing the $11.50â€™s until I have a bigger sample and learn more, also then my chances of having a higher ROI at the $22â€™s will be greater. I plan to move up kind of fast if things go well because of rake.
Other than that Iâ€™m getting really sick of Fort Mcmurray, Alberta..hopefully within the next year I can be profitable enough at poker to leave here. Also Iâ€™m looking to go for a trip in the next few months..Iâ€™ve never been outside of Canada and for now I want to keep it cheap so I am thinking of going to the Dominican Republic for a week and do the All Inclusive thing so if any of you guys that read this and have been there can reccommend a resort that you have been to and liked.. it would be great. Iâ€™m 22 so I donâ€™t want one where itâ€™s mostly all old people LOL. Anyway this is getting long, thanks for reading and good luck.
