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.

Wow, so I have been playing some great poker, and hoping to try and keep it going again. I am going to be playing 4 Tables of 5NL again, so let's see what happens. Not going too well right off the bat, but hey, I can't complain. Just need to focus and get it going again. Wow, I thought I made a good play against a short-stacker when I shoved with my Pocket 6s on a 9 high board. I did at the time til he hit a 10 on the Turn. Ugh. Wow, just getting murdered. Take a step back, and let's see where we can go. Well, after all the pain and torture that I just endured. I just got lucky on a hand. I had A-2 of spades, and called a pre-flop raise. The Flop comes A-Q-2 with two hearts. He fired out $0.80, and I call. The Turn comes the Jack of hearts, and he checks. I fire out $2.50, which is a pot size bet, and he shoves all-in on me, and I decide to call. The river comes a 7, and he shows K-Q. Wow. I was starting to make my comeback, and I played a pot against this player. I raised from the Button with A-7. The SB called, and the Flop came A-J-4. He checked and I fired out $0.25, and he called. The Turn came a 6, and he fired out, and I decided to put him all-in. He called. He had Q-J, and hit a Jack on the River. Ugh. Then I had J-10, and held top two pair on a board of J-9-4-10. The opponent held a set of 9s. Ugh. Wow, just not a good session, because once I get up near to even, I get smacked back, but hey, I can't complain. Just need to focus a little bit more. Hey, it has been a long session so far, but i can't complain too much. Just need to relax, because I know that I can do this. Okay, the train is rolling again, here we go, back to even please. Wow, not good, and that is okay, you got to go down before you can go up, so I will take this as another learning experience, and move on from it. At least I didn't give up all of the profit, so that makes me happy. Here are the stats. PROFIT/LOSS FOR SESSION: $11.52 loss. HANDS FOR SESSION: 282 CURRENT BANKROLL: $164.62 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL: 7128 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL 6MAX: 147 TOTAL HANDS AT 5NL: 4251
