Oh hi guys, I havenâ€™t blogged in a few days. On Saturday I actually played one of those noon tourneys at the casino I was talking about. My parents bought me in. I played well and got a very mediocre hand and had to push. Iâ€™m gunna post some spots that I wasnâ€™t sure about in the forum when Iâ€™m done with this. That night my dad and I went to an arena football game. It was fun but our team was getting killed so we decided to go play poker at the casino again. I lost six bucks. I was pretty drunk, but I played well.
On Sunday my whole morning and half my afternoon was blown looking at cars. I was about to buy one, but I had a weird feeling about it and told the guy that I decided against it. He hung up on me. When I finally got home I mowed my lawn and worked in my garden. The day was beautiful and it was shorts and t-shirt weather so I decided to be productive outside. After all that, I made myself dinner and watched the final two episodes of Dexter Season 1. Ok that show is too intense lol.
Today Courtney and I did some grocery shopping that we desperately needed to do. Looked at another car, but to no avail. At 4:00pm I went to the gym. Got back at 5:00 and started playing poker. I started with the $12s. First session went fine, probably made a small profit. Next sessionâ€¦â€¦wow. And the nextâ€¦..wow. Iâ€™ll probably be back at the 6.50s tomorrow. I may just stick with the 6.50s all month. No matter how much I make. I am cursed at the 12s. Itâ€™s ridiculous. When I look over my sessions in Wiz, I am making the right moves. I am playing just about flawlessly. Players are just getting hands against me in every situation. In the last 169 games at the 12s, I have a -18% ROI. That is an astounding number. Iâ€™m running bad and itâ€™s a fact. I have been running bad at the 12s for a month and a half. About 1300 games and I am in the red. I used to think that it was impossible to have stretches like that. I am living it right now. If anyone wants to look at my hand histories, Iâ€™ll gladly prove that I am running that bad.
Iâ€™m at a point that Iâ€™m not sure if I should just play the $6.50s the rest of the month and cash out the profit or if I should grind out the 12s. I know that my luck at the 12s has to turn around. I had stretches like this last month. At least I could get myself back to even. Except I had the bankroll last month. This month, not so much. I mean I could try the 12s, but I donâ€™t want to get so low that itâ€™s going to take me forever to get back.
Over 330 $6.50s this month, I am at a 13% roi. Which is a shock to me, Iâ€™ll admit. If I could run at a 10% roi at this level, I can make more than enough than I need for rent if I put in the volume. This is really is sounding more and more clear to me. The thing about the 6.50s is that it feels pathetic to tell people how low of a level I am playing for a living. I think thatâ€™s what gets to me.
Well I feel like Iâ€™m just rambling now so Iâ€™m going to cut this off. Hopefully I can get lots of volume in tomorrow. Praying that nothing comes up. Laterz
