Well, my poker playing for November has come to an end.
Profit from HU - 4.2k
Other SNG's - about even
Tournaments - ($215) I tried the sunday HU tourney once. Won my first match, lost the next
FPP profit - $430
Total profit - about 4.4k
I guess I also made 2 trips to the casino to play blackjack and lost $100 each time(we won't count that though, ha)
I guess all in all I am a little bit dissaponted in the month. It's actually by 3rd worst in my now 12 pro months( 1 yr now baby! woot woot). It's all good though I can deal with it. I ended up playing somthing like 500 HU games which is well short of my 650 game goal for the month. If I had gotten those 150 in that would have helped some.
I did venture into the $230's this month, but just a very small amount, about the same as the last couple months. I played 29 of them and went 18-11 which is promising. I'd really like to play more of them, I'm pretty sure I have the skill to beat them, and I def have the bankroll, I think I'm just lacking psychologically. At the $115's losing $500 a day happens and losing $1,000 has happened more than a couple times also. So, I'm guessing a shit day in the $230's would mean losing over $2,000. I guess it's just above my psychological bankroll still. I'm getting better, but I'll have to keep easing myself into them, lol. It doesn't effect my play while I'm playing them or anything, I'm just having a hard time making myself put in consistent volume at that level.
I also have problems with overemphasizng winning sessions and trying to "protect" a win sometimes. For example if I'm 15 games into a session and find myself up $500 I'm way more likely to keep playing the $115's for the day. But if i find myself even or maybe down like $200 or $300 then I'm cool playing a few $230's. It's just stupid, I've tried to make myself change this behavior, but I think it's just the way my mind works. I like recording winning sessions. It affects me more in the way that if I play 10 games and go 9-1 and am up about $800 I am way way way more likely to quit playing for the day then if i went say 5-5. This is even more bad and just costs me money(and probably contributes to my not making volume goals). I was way worse in that dept about 8 months ago, i've gotten better. I mean if my long term expectation is $12/game then after I've played 10 games I've basically made $120 because that is my long term expectation. Enough volume has to be put in to let the good/bad swings like that even out. This is something I've known for a long long time but have to remind my self of alot.
OK, my goal for DEC is to play 650 SNG's again. This can be a combo of any SNG(mostly HU obv). We'll see if I make it, it's a good # to shoot for nonetheless. I think I may try to play some $230's also. It won't be alot but I'll try to play some of them. I should be able to achieve supernova in the last week of Dec which I'm happy about. Time to end 2008 with a bang kiddies!!!!
OK Vikings playing Bears tonight boys and girls. I really like the Vikings in this game, I just have a feeling we are going to win and win big. Big game for both teams for sure.
Prediction: Vikings 27 Bears 7
On a side note I opened an account on sportsbook.com and deposited $500 for a sports betting bankroll. Over the last year or so I've lost about $300 on Bodog sportsbetting(2 seperate $150 deposits, one time I actually turned the $150 into like $750 before losing it). I don't really plan on making any money doing this, it's just fun to bet on sports. However, I've decided that if I lose this $500, or more realistically when I lose it there will be no more sportsbetting for this guy. So this is my last shot at sportsbetting glory you could say. Here are my bets fuckers!!!
Vikings(-3.5) against the bears - $20 to win $20
2 team parlay: Raiders over chiefs, Jets over Broncos, just took moneyline on both - $10 to win $10.78
then I made a little mini bet on the over of the cheifs/raiders game I think the over was like 42 or something - $5.50 to win $5
So if all goes right i could win a cool $35.78. Go picks!
