BOOM

Hey Guys!

Another Great week at the tables!

Current Bankroll is…….

$1119.34

A lot of that is run good, but for the most part of the week I’m pretty happy with my play overall. Its tough though, Im still sick as a dog, and Im getting very tired of playing while I’m having coughing fits. 😦 I look forward to the time when I can click call and not be covering my mouth from coughing.

this is my graph of my month so far. its a little rocky, but overall I’m pretty happy with the way its looking. I switched it up to the $25 HUSNG’S this month. It was a little early in my plans to play them, but I did it for a couple of reasons.

1) A lot of the $12 regs seem really happy just playing regs all day, I don’t care if they bum hunt me, but I know its more profitable if I stay away from them and play fish.

2) Action: I wasn’t getting enough action at the $12 HUSNG’S so I thought I would try the $25’s. Turns out the action isnt better at all, but at least I got to play new screen names, for a while I felt like I was seeing the same 10 people day in and day out.

I plan on staying at the $25 HUSNG level for a bit so my bankroll can catch up to the stakes I play. I need to be careful so the swings of playing a higher limit don’t cripple my bankroll. Its definitely happened before and I like to think Ive learned from my mistakes. Realistically Id like to try to double my Bankroll  at least before I consider bumping up to another stake level.

 

Hope everyone’s doing well! Thanks for the support!

Things are looking up

So I finished my weekly grind today ending my BR at:

$802.09

 

Had a mediocre week, I shot up to $806 then back down to $717  then hit some run good to bring it back up to where it is. Overall Im happy with most of my play. There were moments when I prolly shouldn’t have re matched some people, also I’m still very sick from weeks ago :(. I went to a doctor about my coughing on Friday, the conversation went something like this

Doc : I saw you about a month ago for coughing?

Me: yes, I ran out of your medication and I’m still coughing so i came back

Doc: I see…. It says here that 6 months ago you came in for a cough, and a year ago you came in for a cough.

Me: Ya Ive had a chronic cough when seasons change my whole life

Doc: Well there’s nothing wrong with your lungs so you don’t have asthma, I’m going to send you to a specialist in Nose and Throat.

Ugh so I call this “Specialist” and he must be super busy cuz the earliest appointment i can make is 3 weeks! blahhh.

 

OK so back to poker

Capture

These numbers are a bit more realistic than the run good I had last month, though obviously my $6 results are over avg. There def are still people that are over playing hands and/or not thinking about my range vs their 2 cards. and its definitely my main income source for the moment.

I still make plays though

hands like:

Now before you say that what I did was gross. I should mention that I play a lot with this person. on the flop he would min bet any 4 or spade draw.  leaving mostly air and 2’s to check back, on the Turn the King comes. Normally that would be a scare card, especially because he likes to limp med strength hands, But Id noticed 2ice in this match that both K7o and K8s he had shoved for 8 and 9bbs so I really didn’t think the K was part of his range anymore. Also I think if he still had a deuce he would be checking back because I would be more aggro Preflop if I had a King in my hand. So in theory he was attacking my range, but forgot that he really cant rep much except for a 2. I also had been running over him the whole match and might have won the first 15 hands straight, so he was getting pretty frustrated.

 

Hope everyone’s running good! thanks for stopping by!

Off To Vegas

Hey Guys!

What a week!

started playing mostly $6 and $12 HUSNG’s and I did pretty solid for such a low volume.

Image

Not bad for working 14 hour days all week! I stopped early every night because I was starting to nod off while playing.

My Bankroll is $708 dollars. I’m fairly happy with most of my play. Most of my Focus has been on All In situations, with my hand versus their perceived Range vs My perceived Range etc… Its working out. But obviously its a short sample. I look forward to just sticking with $12 HUSNGS, but for now I think its important to play Both, especially since I may not get action at one stake all of the time.

I definitely had a lot of luck with opponents this week. I had a ton of players just making bad plays against me. Its kinda like that scenario when

you raise

someone shoves

you fold

and that someone says ” I knew you were bluffing”

 

but in reality, If you were bluffing, why raise? cant you just call and beat the bluff?

haha hands like this

Image

 

the action was something like

Raise then call

flop cbet, I called

Turn was Check Check

I value donked against 2 Pair or worse straight, and he shoves giving me 2-1.  Im not sure why he made that play, If Im bluffing then he could just call and split. If Im not then I usually have a Queen there. I wont elaborate but Im grateful for people making plays in that spot. I hope everyones running good!

 

Im off to vegas to see old friends and hang out! I dont plan on gambling but who knows! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

Golf, LIfe, and Filmmaking

Boy what a week!

To start off, on Saturday I bough some golf clubs from the local Roger Dunn golf store down the street. Last Year I started Playing in my Unions Golf Tournament. I’m no good at golfing, in fact last year I placed Last in the whole tournament, BUT when I like something I try to stick with it and focus on getting better at it.  So this year I bought clubs (before I would borrow a set from a friend), and Proceeded to go to the driving range every night and try to focus on my swing, or lack there of. The good news is I have definitely improved, I used to have trouble even connecting with the ball, now at least I can make contact regularly. The bad news is, I cant really hit well with my driver to save my life. Every time I connect It flies Up and to the Right. Sometimes It even fly’s very far to the right. Thankfully tho the tournament is a scramble, and a team format. So all 4 of us hit and then we play best ball. My teammates only have you use 2 of my drives over 18 holes. And my Allies are all very good at golf, so we ended up placing 5th this year we were -7 by the end of the tournament.  I was hoping to somehow miraculously win it so i could say I came in last place the year before and this year I won it. But I suppose that will have to wait some more years. Golf is hard! haha I look forward to practicing more in the future, but am Glad its over with so i can continue to focus on poker.

Week 2 is over of the Kids film I’m on. It was a hard week in the sense that every day was 14hrs and then I had to race home to practice golf, then crash. Not really much room for poker sadly. My Bankroll Currently is….

 

$593.  Which is up a little from last week, I struggled throughout most of the week, I went down to around $520 is and hovered for a while, then I had a 10 game winning streak Saturday morning and played well today to bring my back up. I’m still happy with my play, I think I just need to play when I’m not so tired from work. I find myself only having the energy for 2-3 sng’s when I get home, before my eyes start to feel the lethargy from work.  Thanks for stopping by and GL at the tables everyone!
