Since my demise a week ago when I lost 13.5BI in one tilting crazy session I've been taking it easy on the poker front. Mostly due to work but also because I was a so disappointed with myself. I've only played 3518 hands winning $107.40 but aside from the small win I've played well and felt really good about my game. Short sessions with small wins, quitting immediately after a bad beat every time. I've ended the sessions regardless of how the beat was dealt or how I've felt about it just because I need to learn how to quit.
One of my goals was to play 50k hands of PLO 25 Zoom and move up to PLO 50 Zoom but that won't happen. My new goal is to finish the 50k hands and start over with at least another 50k hands before considering the move up to the next level. I'm in no hurry so no problems. I'm down $334.66 at PLO 25 (EV -$90.81) over 44947 hands. It sucks since the loss is all due to one session and of course running almost 10BI below EV sucks as well but that's to be expected. I'll post a graph once I've reached the 50k mark.
2 weeks to go before I can finally say goodbye to work and start the grind for real. And more importantly, I'll have time to study the game and hopefully improve in the process. I'm also thinking about playing on multiple sites and acting a bonus whore for a while. If anyone has any tips about good bonuses and/or rakeback deals the please let me know.
