The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street

Hey Guys!

So Bankroll climbed up to……..

$2434.54

Which although I am Happy with, I was really Hoping to be at 3k by today. This week, I tried to practice only playing Solid players in a best of 3 games scenario. I think that should cut down on the variance of swings a bit for me. Especially since Im still working on climbing stakes. I played mostly the $24 and $36 Husngs this month.

I had such a good start to this month! Hopefully My July can swing into gear. I know I have some work lined up as well as a trip to NY around the corner.

On the bright side:

I got my FTP Refund Check in the mail last week! I didnt even get notified, I was depositing into my savings account and noticed the balance was much bigger than it should be. I went to look at the transaction history and BOOM, Deposit from the DOJ. Im not gonna lie, I never thought Id see a penny of that money. Its like this huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulder. So then I go on Cardrunners to see if anyone else is in this boat with me. And a Friend makes a comment that Juicy Stakes Poker has a new Owner and we can cashout now. When FTP died, I created an account on Cake poker, because at the time they had a good reputation and seemed like good software. But after a year, they emailed me and told me they had transferred my account to a site called “Juicy Stakes” which looked like a ghetto version of Cake poker. I ran $200 into a sizable Bankroll and tried to withdrawal. And they kept my money Pending for 9 months! Finally I emailed them very angrily for a month, and they put the money back into my account. I haven’t played on the site or checked my balance ever since.

Flash forward to today.

I requested a Juicy Stakes cash out (Max is 1k, and they charge $100 check cutting fee, 3 checks allowed per month) and 4 days later they email me saying

“Dear Valued Customer,

Please be advised that your cashout request has now been processed and the Check will arrive in 3 to 5 days at your mailing address on record with Juicy Stakes by courier. Never mention online poker when talking to your bank about this Check please. Kindly note that the Check will be sent from a Canadian Bank.

Should you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards,
Juicy Stakes Support”

 

Obviously that seems super shady but seriously I never thought Id see this money either so what can I do.

 

Anywho the bank worked out great, and now starts the long process of doing 3 checks a month for a while.

WHAT A MONTH

The above pic is my stats for the month. The $36 level is a bit skewed and Break Even IMO, I played mostly Regs just so they might be discouraged from sitting me in future sessions. Hopefully that strat pays off. Also the $12 level isn’t anything dramatic, In previous Months Ive been running like God at those stakes so this must be the other side of the coin.

I have lots to do in July, but Ill do my best to try to record a couple vids for the health of the blogs sake, Hope everyone is doing well!

Busy Week

Hey Guys!

Starting it off with My Bankroll…..

 

its at $2129.79

 

Obviously not a big improvement like previous weeks, in fact I think Its around $90 profit for the week. Theres a lot of factors as to why its where it is.

Ill list them in Order of Importance

1)I had a killer first 3 days of the week, I jumped up $390 profit and was looking to have the best week on this blog yet. But then I started playing a Reg, which led to Heads Up Warfare, He was playing well and running well, and one thing led to another, and all my profit slid away. I decided in future matches, Ill just play him 2 out of 3, and if he wins Ill do my best to find a different opponent.

2) I decided that even though I’m sick, I couldn’t turn work down anymore and had to put in about 60+hrs of film making work this week. I got lucky, I got handed some really fun projects.

3) When I get home from said jobs, its roughly 8-10pm and all the fish have gone to bed. So I’m stuck playing regs. Although I do enjoy playing Regs, I enjoy playing New people a whole lot more. I don’t wanna sound like a broken record about mentioning the regs so ill stop.

Im only working 4 days this week though, So Im gonna try to do a video or 2 of me playing the $24 and $36 stake level. I know Im super overdue on that. Thanks for stopping by!

Skys The Limit

Hey Guys,

I’m starting 2014 out with a Challenge to myself. I have $300 in my poker account on Americas Card room, and I’m going to see where I can take that in the course of 1 years time. At the same time I’m going to exercise strict bankroll management so that I don’t go on tilt. I plan on limiting myself to only playing with 5% of my bankroll on any given day.

My job has really demanding hours so I decided against setting a specific monetary goal, but Id like to try to get anywhere above 10k, and this is from someone that works 27 days a month, 11months straight. Ill do my best to post videos of my play on YouTube, as well as post graphs of how I’m doing.

Ill also post books I’m reading, events I’m playing in, and anything else of interest whilst I can.

Thanks for stopping by!

Also feel free to post questions about any play you see me make, or any hands I post, Ill try to reply as best I can,

Happy New Year!
