Hello im Bill from Greece and hopefully this post wont be considered as rant/whine.
Im a 2-5 live reg, poker in Greece is running from september 2010 so its kinda new trend.
Ive been playing lhe and nlhe since i was young and when i heard its hitting the Greek casinos i was excited.So although i didnt have a roll i managed to save up some money from my job and go play.
2011 was a really good year as a basically run godly and chrashed the tables really hard.
Total stats for 2011 are:
Total sessions: 92
Total won: 23703 €
std deviation: 783,56€
Average per hour: 47,36 €
my stats for the 3 months of 2010(september to december are kind the same as i net ~8k)
But then i had a big break from poker in january 2012 till april or may(4-5 months) due to some family affairs which kept my mind off poker although i was properly bankrolled but in no mood to play.
Eventually though i put all those behind and i returned to my favourite hobby, poker.
I starting going to the casino regularly and tried to put some volume and improve my game as much as possible.Stats for 2012 are really discouraging,although i do have the feeling im playing better.
Total won: 2748 €
std deviation: 639,77€
Average per hour: 8,95 €
So what are your thoughts, i know the samples arent big enough and i did get coolered/sucked out on most big pots i played this year.I think im comfortly rolled at ~5000bb for 2-5 and usually i buy-in for 100-200bb depending on the players stacks.Another thing to consider is recession hitted Greece bad and the games are getting dry, so most players now buy-in for 40bb in 2-5 and 5-10 games are almost non existant unless i play PLO.
Thanks in advance for all the replies.
