Summary of April 2013

By: TommyGun369 @ 07:59 (EDT) / 168 / Comment ( 0 )


I have been neglecting my blog for quite a while now which is very disappointing... but I am back with fresh new poker ideas and stories to share with you so be prepared, Tommy is back and he won't keep you bored anymore Well okay, the first post is going to be boring (but I promise to keep it short) because I just realised that I completely forgot to do a summary of April 2013 so here it is:

Do not know the exact numbers but I played about 60k hands and lost my gold star status (unfortunately I had a lot of other responsibilities to take care of other than poker). I did play a while at FullTilt to get some free money from promotions and my HUD does not work there so I am not 100% sure about this but  I basically broke even for the month, maybe even lost some money (which would meant that april 2013 was my very first losing month in poker). I hit yet another nasty downswing at 10NL zoom when on one sunday in about 3.5 hours and 4k hands I lost 13 buy-ins while running 8BI below EV. It was just brutal I can tell you. I lost lost with every hand possible (even with quads once because I got disconnected ) The worst day of poker so far. I do not want to talk about downswings and frustration here though, so I think this is all I have to say about April. So far in May I have been lucky enough to turn everything in right direction and gain a lot more confidence in my game. Exactly what I needed

Take care everyone and good luck at the tables!

See you soon
