Yes, I do this a lot to myself, but I am truly going to grind myself all the way through the Micro Stakes. Starting out with $100 in my account, I am going to be playing at the 2NL level, and when I reach 40 Buy-Ins on the next level, at that point I will move up then, and continue up the progression level. I will definitely be trying to leave myself points to Cash Out some profit, but we will see when that comes along, but it should at least.

Alright, once again, here we go. Going to try and continue to dig myself out of the hole, and just going to play another 12 Tables at 5NL, so hopefully it does go better than the last time. Ugh. Here's to it. Well, one of the first hands, I run A-K into Pocket Aces. But then I get most of it back with A-6 when I hit a straight on the River, and got doubled up. Definitely continuing with my 3_betting philosophy. It has worked, and it will work again. It has just been a rough patch, and those happen, and you have to learn to take those swings. So, here we go. I am also really starting to make sure that a lot of the pots, I am trying to raise on the Flop if I get the opportunity to do so. Ugh, I thought I had the best hand. Held bottom pair a nd a flush draw, and hit my three of a kind on the River, but he had two pair, and hit a full house there. Ugh. The strong raises are working out well, and honestly, getting a lot of people to fold to me, which makes me happy. Making a few bad calls on the River for some pots, and just need to think about those situations. I love when the donkeys decide to call with Ace high on the Flop and hit the Ace on the Turn or River. It is just great. Ugh. Well, just donked away more money again pre-flop. Called with A-K for a huge overbet and ran into Aces. Ugh. Just seems like I am donking my money away. Relax, you are phenomenal, you know that. Ugh. Ugh. Just not playing my best right now, and I am going to go down to 8 Tables on the next go around, juts needing to change something up, and I am not sure what it is. Just need to relax, because I know that this is a rough patch, and going to go through it every once in a while, but it just seems like I am the one who is causing it this time by making the bad calls. Just need to relax, and think about those kinds of situations. Here are the stats. PROFIT/LOSS FOR SESSION: $4.94 loss. HANDS FOR SESSION: 347 CURRENT BANKROLL: $202.55 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL: 7128 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL 6MAX: 147 TOTAL HANDS AT 2PLO 6MAX: 104 TOTAL HANDS AT 5NL: 21093
