Day 52 - 60: Our FT ruined in one day!

By: Tizmouk @ 09:54 (EST) / 195 / Comment ( 2 )

Sorry it has taken a while for an update! I have been working and now my mum is visiting so will be spending much of my time with her. She lives quite far away and this will be the longest time we have seen each other in 12 years so will definately be away from the tables.

The day after our FT we went on a horrible run of cards where no matter how good we got it in we was bound to lose. We played a lot of tournaments and still kept our game strong but unfortunately it was just one of those days. We maybe should have realised earlier and stopped but I have always been taught and read that the best way to stop a loosing streak is to keep playing! We ended up loosing all of our profit from the FT! We have had some decent deep runs as follows:


83rd / 870 for $3.17

45th / 603 for $26.62

35th / 359 for $11.36

117th / 896 for $2.23

52nd / 1812 for $2.78

110th / 3725 for $2.65

42nd / 2710 for $31.11


Some fairly decent runs but not enough to recover whats going down as a loosing streak. I am going to lower my buy in range and give myself a 200 Buy in cushion rather than 100 Buy Ins. I will however still have a daily "shot" tournament that I will choose depending on the day. This buy in however can be no more than 2% of my Bankroll.

That being said, I still think that I am playing good poker and am continuing to enjoy the game more than ever.

BR start of the day: $982.06

BR end of day: $882.60

Day profit: -$99.46

Total Profit: +$1733.21

We are still in plenty of profit from poker at the moment but are heading in the wrong direction for our goals! We will turn it around though!

Thanks all for the positive vibes!

Thanks for the read and See You @ The Tables!
