After my last blog post, it struck me that blogging about my wins/losses every day was affecting my play â€“ if I was down in a session, I was more focused on how much I was down tnan making correct decisions. So, I decided to make some changes -
1. Use tiltblocker to cover my stack at the table â€“ I always buy in for 50 BB and have it set to reload if I ever get down to 12BB, so thereâ€™s no reason to ever see my stack.
2. No more HUD. I only play 2 tables, and if I canâ€™t keep track of whatâ€™s happening on two tables without a HUD, I need to take up tiddlywinks instead.
3. No looking at the cashier or importing hands into HEM until Saturday night. I have 500+ BB, so thereâ€™s no danger of losing it all in a single week.
That means that tonight was the first time in a week that Iâ€™ve looked at the Stars cashier â€“ I expected to be up a little because yesterday and today have gone pretty well â€“ much better than earlier in the week (fish can only hit 2-outers so often).
By the time the dust cleared, I was up $9.69 for the week. Itâ€™s good that I wasnâ€™t paying attention to my results during the week, because my low point of the week was -$16.00, meaning I was almost down to my starting point. Iâ€™m sure that would have affected my play had I known that.
Total won: $32.46
Total VPPs for the month: 369.23
