Back to Zero - In a Good Way

By: alinthecount @ 14:15 (EST) / 355 / Comment ( 1 )
Last month I deposited a total of $70 in my PS cash account.  I managed to lose $40 of it due to some bad choices in play.  But there's good news.

I'm back up to $50 now, mostly building my bankroll with really solid single table SNG play.  I have to say that my game is really starting to come together and I'm starting to find (after playing online for 1 1/2 years) my style and applying lessons in a more cerebral way.

I am discovering that it is possible to be a solid, tight, aggressive player without being overly methodical and see-through, and by not allowing emotion to take over at critical junctures of games - especially tourneys.

Of course, you can't tell by my month in the PSO league so far, but even though I'm dropping like a rock in the standings, I feel like I'm actually playing well.  I can't control watching my pocket aces that become a set on the flop getting all-in raised by a J3 - then having him hit a runner runner for an A-5 straight.

So I'm continuing with my plan for February - single table SNG's to build bankroll, PSO tourneys to work on my MTT game, and 25 cent, 45 player MTT SNG's to see if I can maintain and maybe grow my bankroll over 100 games.
