I’ve been back from AC for a couple of weeks and have finally gotten back into the online groove. Here’s a quick summary of what’s been happening.
First off it’s totally weird going from live $5/$10 & $10/$20 NL to online $1/$2 NL and vice versa. I’m pretty disciplined when it comes to managing myself when it comes to poker. For the foreseeable future I’ll remain at $1/$2 until I’m dead certain that I’m a solid winner in this game. I do feel like I’ve made serious strides towards that over the past couple of months and again I have to think that writing this blog and taking poker more seriously in my life are in a large part responsible. Since I’m back home I’m about break even but there’s quite a caveat to that. I detoured to Full Tilt and had a disastrous 2 days at the cash tables about a week ago, dropping about 8 buy ins. So much for that experiment. On Stars I’ve been solidly grinding profits. For the month I sit at around + 12 buy ins.
In the past week since I’ve gotten back into the groove I’ve been experimenting with a few things. One major thing is that I’ve begun to play as many as 8 tables at a time as compared to my usual 3-4. It takes some getting used to but I’m really trying to nail this because I know it will open up a lot more opportunity for me in the online tournament universe.
I’ve had a couple of nice results this week. In addition to the usual frustrating deep runs only to finish at the final 2 or 3 tables; I took 4th place in a Stars $55 with nearly 1000 runners and I also chopped up a Stars $109 making for a nice month of December.
I’ll probably try to get one more tournament session in before the end of the year.
I’m not quite ready to venture into a lengthy discussion about my results on Stars vs. Full Tilt but it may be a topic I have no choice but to delve into in the near future. Thus far I’m sucking big time wind on Full Tilt. I just haven’t been able to get over the hump. I’m a pretty stubborn SOB when I want to be and by no means am I ready to throw in the towel over there but the kicks in the balls I receive at Full Tilt are starting to become discouraging. I will have to review this topic in the 1st quarter of the New Year.
If I don’t update again before the end of the year I want to wish everybody a Happy and Healthy.
