So I'm recording the final episode of Moneytrain tonight. Â Tis bittersweet as I am greatly looking forward to taking a mini-break from poker, but I also enjoyed the experience and learned a great deal. Â My thanks go out to jk3a first and foremost for his teachings and his patience. Â I also want to thank everyone who watched the series and wished me GL along the way. Â It is greatly appreciated and helps out a lot during those rough periods (like how I started the series). Â I feel like jk3a really helped me not only find a few leaks, but also how to fix them. Â As expected, I'm still working on them, but I've never felt better about my game. Â I feel extremely comfortable sitting at 200NL and once my bankroll is ready, I hope to take some 400NL shots. Â
Speaking of which, I wish I could have gotten my bankroll to the point where I was taking shots by the end of the series, but alas my roll was going in the wrong direction during the first part. Â I am happy to report that things are going much better now though :) Â (plz no jinx for saying so) Â I had a massive downswing to start the year which resulted in being down ~$4500 at one point. Â That may or may not sound like a lot to you, but for a 100NL player who dabbled in 200NL, it was huge to me. Â However, I studied and worked my butt off, and just kept playing. Â As a result, I'm EXTREMELY happy to say that I'm now UP on the year! Â Yes, that's right! Â In the green! Â (I don't like how red/black are opposites, they both seem negative to me so I use green.) Â I feel like I'm playing my best poker nowadays and see GREEN pastures in my future :) Â Here is my graph so far this year. Â On my way back! Â With rakeback/bonuses, I'm currently up ~$1k which is a huge relief after how things started!
So in conclusion, I want to say thanks to everyone involved, especially jk3a. Â I learned a great deal and hope to keep learning. Â I also hope to pass along my knowledge and start coaching again. Â My apologies to those who wanted to see some 400NL action, but I tried my best. Â The series seems to be very well-received so who knows, maybe we'll make a sequel once I'm a bit closer to my $12k goal :) Â That is ultimately up to you guys so let your voices be heard if you want more!
