I've had a busy few months since my last entry almost 5 months ago, haha. so ill just talk about some quick stuff cause theres too much to possibly recap. ill try to make 2 updates a month from here out.
I was up in seattle the last 2 weeks of july visiting schaefer and it was a blast. While I was out there I played a lot and managed to make about 20k playing 5/10 to 25/50 plo. After that I took it easy for a couple months only playing a random session here or there. It kinda seems my whole life is like this. I have a temporary addictive personality to things. I do something hardcore for a month then i take a few months off from it, no matter what it is: poker, jiu jitsu, doing my blog, whatever it is i tend to fall off the wagon and pick up something else for a while then return to it later.
Anyway I started playing again this month and im addicted. I literally cant leave the computer, wont quit games, just keep grinding all day long. At first i was playing 8 tables of mostly 2/4 to 5/10 plo, mixed between the shallow and capped tables. I wasnt doing so well though. I was spewing a little bit here and there, had trouble adjusting to the changing stacksizes (200bb effective vs a good player on one table and 30bb effective vs the entire table somewhere else) and was just generally rusty.
I decided to cut my tables down, trying to not play more than 4 unless there are really amazing games and to concentrate solely on cap. With cap I can use the same strategy on every table cause im always 40bb effective with the entire table. And ive had really really great results in cap plo:
With results like that it seems I should just play all cap from here out. The cap games dont run as much nowadays since the shallow tables have been introduced, so I've had to play some lower stakes a bit which I am ok with because the 1/2 games are really soft. My priority is to play 5/10 and 10/20 along with bumhunting some 25/50 games mixed in when they are whalefests, but if there arent enough games running im fine opening up 1/2 - 3/6 cap tables.
So enough of that, I have an mspaint for you guys that I just drew. I posted this pic on my blog a few years ago from when i was 15 years old:
A few of my buddies told me I looked really old for my age and I was a stud. Well sadly I didnt get any ladies back then, but when I was 11 i was a REAL stud and got all the ladies. I didnt have access to any pictures of me at 11 so I had to go draw one. It's very accurate though, so I dont even need to go home and find an old picture.
As you can see, at 11 i was a real girl magnet. Ill get back on the mspaint grind and try to refresh my old skills. Thats it for now though, ill post an update in a few weeks
