100 Game Grind #5

By: baud2death @ 04:02 (EDT) / 188 / Comment ( 0 )

I played badly last night.I had a lovely plan of keeping it tight but re-stealing with A9 for stacks and calling all-ins with Ax, just wasn't played well.


Have to stay tighter, have to be looking for the long-term win not the short-term chip-up and have to believe my opponents more. Yes, thinking everyone has the nuts when they bet is unrealistic but thinking no-one has it when you hold just a bottom pair is stupid.

I still have a healthy bankroll, still have both room and time to improve and need to take the results from yesterday as a guide of what not to do.

The end goal is still getting to that Final Table, need to keep my eyes on that.

Games played : 82
Games cashed : 10
Buy-in spent : $82.00
Winnings : $75.92
Profit : -$6.08

I am going to continue playing the League Qualifier but won't put results up here anymore. I think I need a lot of luck to make it so am going to take my results offline (or lack thereof) and keep at it. Start of next month, if I am deciding to keep the attempt going, I will make a seperate blog series just for that.

Overall I am -$6.08 on the run, am going to ignore my specific bankroll as only the profit counts and if I run other games (such as weekend MTTs or the League games) it may make it hard to understand if I don't include those results.

Onwards and upwards

Looking forward to some tight, strong and winnings rich games tonight.
