Reflections from the banks of a muddy january

By: b.p.rabbit @ 16:23 (EST) / 350 / Comment ( 0 )

Well its time to reflect......................
I think my main goal of avoiding tilt is coming along, it still happens but im a lot more aware of it, so now i walk away in times of unrest.......(not always before losing chips)
The bankroll is a disaster......have blown around $300 in deposits and $200 winnings (im going to call it minus $300) so i have a rather large hill to climb if i want to even out my graph! I have been playing outside my bankroll limits all last month. I told myself i wouldnt and would stick to the plan for a couple of hours b4 becoming bored. I would begin taking things up a notch and BAM!
On the plus side i think my tourney play has improved. I have lifted my open league pokerschool ranking by around 60k places to 35k (I finished 222/10000 in the last freeroll for the month, still didnt get inside the bubble!!)
I think some areas of my game have improved and some areas have gone downhill, I am playing consistant poker, it is consistantly bad!lol
Anyway thats the wrap up for January more lowlights than highlights buts its early in the game!
In February I am going to save the money i usually deposit and try and start March with a larger bankroll (I'm already having visions of losing.....I mean winning a massive stak!) this will allow me to play at bigger buy-in tables more comfortably.I will still be depositing a small amount through February and will continue my january goal of sticking to minimum buy ins and limit hold em.
My other main goal through february is to watch as many videos as i can from the pokerschool video library.
Take it easy or easily take it,
