Poker learnings of a geologist.

After 7 months of playing...

By: Liptinite @ 09:42 (EST) / 389 / Comment ( 3 )

I had a good September 2016 (beginner's luck), a terrible October 2016 (I ran out of beginner's luck) and a break even, up and down November to January 2017.

Since the start of 2017, I've knuckled down, increased my reading on strategy, taking notes and tightened my starting range (AXo is no longer a certain play).

In late February 2017, I've applied table selection and starting to see progress in MTTs. My initial ~$30 to $40 deposit in late July 2016 is now $134. I'm sticking with 2NL and microstakes MTTs for now because I am still making some big errors but it's getting there.
