Simply put, it was a good day, a good start. I lost a few hands being sucked out that cost me two all in's but I also had some good wins I finished the day on $545 which is an increase of $45 (225 BB). I played for about 3 hours this evening and half an hour at lunch.
I will beef this up with some actual stats from the session and maybe a couple of hands for comment along with my profit graph but I am lying in bed on the phone now so that won't happen until tomorrow night. The unfortunate thing is $20 of the days profit came via my iPhone at lunch. 4 tabling I play over 200 hands in the hour but can only seem to get hand history's for my last 200 from Stars, any ideas how to fix this? Add to this the pokerstars app seems to sit me in the wrong seat it just ended up reeking havoc with my attempted input in PT3 so I disregarded those hands (but the profit is still in my account ;) )
Non playing activity
So if I want to improve I know I need to also focus on study and further learning, yuck! My current study is Jared Tendler's book, I have got through the first four chapters and it is really good. I think I will finish it without taking notes but then I will reread/skim it again and note a few key thoughts and points, it is great.
I have already watched the Baby Steps videos which were great and I have watched a few of the Ground on up with Tubasteve and N0whereman which were great but after reading somewhere about focusing your study I have decided it is a good idea so I am putting videos on hold until I have finished Jared's book then I think I will complete the Ground on up video series. This will hopefully allow me to grasp the concepts I am trying to learn a little more easily as I won't have 100 new concepts to juggle.
Something also on my to do list is to set some short term ad medium term goals that are not cash related.... I need to put my thinking cap on.
Anyway that is me for the day, I am new to this blogging world but to be honest it is really relaxing writing down my days poker activities, it feels somewhat theaeuputic.
Tomorrow I will update this post with a couple of hands and the stats to go with the day. Hmm just remembered I am off to the brick and mortar casino for some action tomorrow night so the update may need to wait.
