10 days in

Have to be honest I almost called this one I hate Zoom, but that is just a gut shot reaction to my own shortcomings.  Truth is I like Zoom and think i can beat it at the 2nl level.  But i want to improve my play with an eye on the bigger stakes and the zoom table for me is not the place to be making changes to my game.  So for the last 3 days it has been non zoom only and 3 days profit.

So 10 days of the year have gone already,

5nl  played 7673 hands and in the red by 39.22,

but as I say I think I have plugged that leak at least for a while and concentrating on reads at the slower placed tables.

25 cent 45 mans

24 tournaments played for a net loss of 2.80

I have also played 3 of my tickets for the daily dollar but with an average finish of 794th I guess that's a  bit of a bust.

Also while trying to run up points in Fulltilt (before i set my bankroll guidelines for myself) I played 1 $1 stt and one $2.50 but both where busts.

So my cash bankroll is now $110.78

and my SnG /MTT roll is $9.70

I have also played 7 Premier league games and sit in 371st with a score of 1549 points (last month the cut off for 500th place was 1588.65 points so that's my goal for now)

Have been in some live trainings this month 4 so far.  Watched 2 videos in the archives ( 45 mans is next on my play list ) started reading Super system but will be honest falling behind there but its all good the weekend is here so will read some more then.

Not a great start, in fact a bomb, but i have seen the problem and made a move to plug it so onwards and upwards we gooooooooooo.
