Consistency is the key!

One of my major goals for this year was to find a new regular game that could generate some reasonable profits. I have to say I think I may have found it with 9 man turbo knockouts. Over the past week I've been grinding away at them and have turned a losing month into a profitable one. After the first couple of days playing about 20 games a day I found myself getting a lot of 1st and 3rd place finishes and noticed I was getting pretty close to the Battle of the Planets low orbit leaderboard. It's not something I had much considered before but after looking into it I was spurred on by the prospect of some nice prizes just for making profits. I decided to make a real effort to play as many games as I could before the week was done but time and again I came up just short or the low orbit board, my best effort reaching 391 points putting me only in the top 400. However with only a few games left until I reached the 100 mark I realise I was on track for a high orbit place and despite a bit of a bad run nearer the end I got a reasonable 1548 points placing me 31st in the high orbit board. So even without a really good block of 20 I still managed to play better than most over a longer period proving consistency is the key. I recently read in someone else's blog that it's no longer slow and steady wins the race, it's proper planning and consistency.. pretty sound logic if you ask me.


Quote of the day: Hold'em - like life itself - has its defining moment.  It's the flop.  When you see the flop, you're looking at 71 percent of your hand, and the cost is only a single round of betting.
