Word up!

In this post there will be:

Round up's - avec graph
A refrigerated Stone Cold Steve Austin (that's mighty cold)
A shameless plug link to my forum post - it has good stuff for everyone so do have a read

No posts for a while for 2 reasons:

1 - It was my 30th birthday which was marked by a huge surprise party with all my friends from England making the journey to good old rainy Ireland for a knees up, hoe down, hootenanny, and a mate being locked in the bathroom. Cut a long story short, we had to drill him out - epic.

2 - Hospital health stuff and huge news have got in the way of thinking about anything nearing normal.

Those are the excuses :wink:

Round up of November 

Hands played:

5NL - 12973
bb/100 - 9.13
profit/loss - +$59.20

2NL - 8791
bb/100 - 16.79
profit/loss - +$29.52

Total profit - $88.72

Graph Ho!

The dip towards the end marks the start of what wil hopefully be a warmer winter. In short I got coolered left right and centre for ~2500 hands.

AA all in 3 way preflop vs KK and KQ for a $14 pot. KQ flops open ender that completes on the river - cold

89o in the BB blind, 2 limpers, flop comes Jd10sQd I lead out for value from draws, 2 pair, sets etc.
SB obliges and all the money goes in on the flop for a $12 pot. The guy tables K-9 - snowman scumbag

Classic AdKd into AA two diamonds on the flop but nay, it was not to be - ice cubed tears

Oversetted 88 vs AA on A89 board - icicles of pain

Top set versus made flush that didn't fill up - Stone Cold Steve Austin

And many more. Despite this I am only 2 buy ins down this month so it's not so bad - body warmer of comfort.

Goals for this month are:

1: At least 20k volume
2: Move up to 10NL and run hotter than the sun
3: Start more poker drilling excercises to work on my hand reading, equity estimations etc

This has been rather a long post. My apologies

Above is the link to my forum post. As the name suggests it has a few of my favourite things that I have found on the web that really are very helpful for your poker game.

Good luck at the tables everyone. I'll keep you posted as to how it's all going.
