This Years Mine?


This Year.

By: Seeker619 @ 03:50 (EST) / 352 / Comment ( 2 )

     Every Year I Say, "this Years Mine!".  Obviously Regarding Poker. And At The End Of Past Years This Prophecy Has Failed To Be True..  This Year Is So Far The Best Year I've Had..

   I Started The Year By Depositing $10.  That Was A Month Ago.  I Had My Bank Roll Up To Over $100 A Week Ago.  And The Prior Weeks I Been Hovering Around $75.  Once I Hit The $100 Mark I Started Playing The 6 Man $6.50 Tourney's, And Even Felt A Little Bold And Threw In Some Of The $13 Ones..  Bad Move, I Quickly Dropped My Bank Roll Below $50, Then $40, Then $30..   Now I'm At Around $30 Again. Which Is Still Up For The Year.. 

   I'm Gonna Change Gears And Go Back To What I Did In The Beginning When I Deposited My $10. I Was Playing The .55 Tourney's, And Some Of The 1.10's.  I Quickly Got My Bankroll Over $30, And Started Playing The 6 Man $3.25 Tourney's, And It Was Those $3.25 Tourney's That Were My Bread And Butter, In 2 Nights I Went From $30 To Around The $100 Mark.. I Was Playing 2 At A Time. That Was It.. Taking It Slow, And Not Having So Much Going On That I Couldn't Keep Track Of Players Styles And Habits.. I Don't Use A Poker Tracker Which I Know I Should.. Just Haven't Gotten Around To It..  I Digress, But Anyway, When I Went From $100 To Below $30, I Did A Dumb Move. I Was Playing 6-8 Tables At Once.  And Lost It Quickly..  With That Many Tables Going Its Always "BEEP BEEP BEEP" With The "You're Running Out Of Time" Warnings.  And Me Switching Tables At A Rapid Rates Making Split Second Decisions..  Ive Seen Some Crazy People Doing 20+ Tables, But Im Not At That Point. I Took A Step Back, Analyzed My Mistakes and Ready To Jump Back In Again.

  Anyway Back To The Grind And Gonna Get This Bankroll To $50. (Not Going To Try, I'm Gonna Do It)  (After My Cig) :)

Take Care Poker Lovers.
