My path in poker and the story of how I walk the path


Last month compared to this month.

It is nearing the end of the month and my rank is not as good as I would like it. I have a few days to try and improve, but I have a feeling I will not be ITM on the leaderboard this month. Last month I was ranked in the 300's. I was a whitstar at the time so I recieved no money. To be honest. I was not worried about the money. I was just happy to have placed as high as I did. It felt great to have two final table finishes and place ITM on tourneys more then not placing. I have no idea what I am doing this month that is different then last month. I have been playing the same hands, but they seem to not be hitting. I guess my luck is a little on the low side this month. Also, when I do get hands I seem to scare my opponents to fold no matter if I bet low or high or even a middle bet. It never fails, I bet they fold and my good hand wins very little. I have even tried letting them bet into me, but they stop betting if I make a call. I am going to try and make a comeback in the next 2 days. Hopefully, I find some luck today and for the next 2 days. If not, I will just have to try again next month. I just cannot for the life of me figure out why this month has been so different. Nothing has changed in the way I play, but I have noticed the hands that are sending me to the rails are hands I choose to not play. Hands of weak nature which are played way out of position, yet, they win and hit all the time. I understand any hand can win in this game, but boy does it get old when your AA with a huge raise gets called by a J8 suited. And to watch the J8 hit a fullhouse or set every time. LOL! I think I will just start folding AA every time. Okay, that's not true. I will play them more carefully though. Last month taught me the game. This month has taught me how to lose and still keep my head up. Good luck to all of you. I hope to see you at the tables.
