So, I played 10k hands of a mix of $10nl, Â£10nl and â‚¬10nl over the weekend without a HUD. I profited $36, so all wasnâ€™t lost but I was definitely left guessing more often than not. Volume wise, Iâ€™m really pleased though, getting 10k hands in over 11 hours play was pleasing, even if the results were very moderate.
My only focus this week is the rake race. I move house on Friday, so Iâ€™ll lose a day there and Iâ€™ll be spending time with my kids on Saturday, so Iâ€™ll lose another half day there which means Iâ€™m going to have to cram tonnes of hands in Mon-Thurs before launching a final assault on Sunday when its double points day.
At the end of the race, Iâ€™ll be off back to Betfair because ipoker has very little to offer when its not rewarding volume. If I win the race, Iâ€™ll make $300 for playing ~30-40k hands, the $300 represents 66% rakeback, so its worth going for but the games on ipoker are pretty much dead, even as low as $20nl because at any point in time, one skin or another is running a rake race meaning the site is full of solid TAGâ€™s beating the game for probably 2bb/100.
