So far I am doing well at carbon. Up about $360 at 25nl without rakeback and $435 with, winning at about 25bb/100. One thing I have noticed is that most players at least have a general clue and a lot are very decent players with only a few leaks. I guess this is because its mainly US players now that have to jump through a bunch of hoops to play. At first I thought this was a bad thing but am now realizing how good this is for my game. I am learning more and more about how to exploit regs and different layer types and it also doesn't feel like a grind as much because I have to actively think about my spots and what is going on. I am enjoying the competition a lot and can't wait for online poker to be legalized in the US so I can move up the stakes much faster with my new found experience against a much harder player pool. DC and the community has had a lot to do with my success and I want to thank you all. I feel very confident that I will be able to move through the stakes and conquer any challenge in my way thanks to you all. Since I have started at DC here is a graph of all my HU cash play. I have also made a ton at tourney since then but that isn't included here.
The bbs graph looks much better here
