Volume Prop: Week 3.3 update

Blech. I didn't play at all over the last weekend, so I had to put in some longer sessions this week to get back on track. I'd rather not have to put in an epic last-minute session to get there, and I'd rather not have to figure out how to count up my triple draw hands since I don't have software to track them, so I hope to just finish off the 40k hands just from PLO this week. So the last few days I've put in long sessions and gotten totally crushed. I suppose it is the nature of PLO to have these runs now and again, but I really don't enjoy them. It only adds up to a 12 buyin downswing when measured in bb, but unfortunately the heaviest hits have been at the higher stakes.  I've reviewed the hands from the biggest drop that occurred tonight, and I can spot a few hands that I could have played  better, but really the majority of it just seems to be coolers and setups, with a few bad beats thrown in.

Well, I guess I shouldn't whine too much. Nobody wants to hear that. I'm currently at 33,889 hands with 6 days left to go so I shouldn't have any trouble getting there. My current winnings are slight enough to be considered breakeven (thank goodness for the supernova bonuses). I just hope I can focus on playing great poker and win some money in my next few sessions.

A few items unrelated to the prop, but of sufficient noteworthiness: 
1) FTP has finally opened up draw games. Hooray! I've played a fair bit of tripledraw lately on both sites as there has been good action, but I think I've been running bad at that too. Oh well, keep on truckin.
2) My ultimate winter league just started, so I no longer am completely a couch potato. My team is pretty stacked with talent (we have players from the national championship teams from 3 different divisions) so I think we've got a good shot to win it all. Now if only I could get back in shape and contribute something to the team.
3) I'm currently at 120k VPPs for the year, so my goal of 200k is within reach. I can only hope to have enough motivation to keep putting in hours once the prop is over. Plus I have to work around the holidays, so my available playing time will be more limited. I guess another challenge is a good thing!

Seems to be an unwritten rule. Everytime I try to move up in stakes my Aces get cracked and my sets get outdrawn.

Good luck for the last part of the prop, DJ.
