It's been 2 years since I last deposited into online poker. I've never been a Marantz or a Creative, but I've made a small amount of extra cash grinding my way from 10nl up to 50nl until March of this year. I went on a downswing over about 30,000 hands that really ****ed up my BR and forced me back into 25nl. Since then, a combination of no time, playing bad and running relatively bad have damaged me even further to the point that I will inevitably bust soon.

I made a promise to myself that I would never deposit again into Poker and I have held that promise for 2 years. At this point I'm a little exhausted with the idea that I will ever become a mid-stakes grinder, so I've just decided to go balls to the wall with what I have left. I will give it my all with my last $300 at 50nl HU. Due to the variance of HU I can almost guarantee this gets very ugly, but what the heck. I'm not really in the mood to grind my role back up to a few K again, from nothing, like I did over a year ago.

This is it! It's been a fun couple of years. I will post updates on my downfall, unless I should be so lucky to catch some hands and play them well.

edit: since miracles do happen, if any sick player wants to stake me for 100nl and coach me for 50% of any profits on a trial basis, let me know

June 31st: BR back to 1k and I'm back to 50nl.

If there is one thing I'm good at in Poker, it's being a BR nit.

I tried doing my "do or die" strategy for 30 minutes before I just stopped. I'm back on the grind. I guess I never was a risk taker.

I'll report back when I work my roll back up playing in the micros.

lol orig

dont tilt off your roll bc the game is hard, imo grind hard and get a coach

if you like the game and want to make money theres so many avenues to get better, you just have to focusssss

im in a house with 6 other poker guys right now and I have never learned as much about the game as i have in the past 2.5 weeks, its incredible being around guys who play the same stakes or higher as you in an environment where people are playing 2-3k hands a day and always thinking/talking about poker



im on front left, then going clockwise, petey1223 (2/4 stars) drock8d5 (5/10 stars) Danieldaylewis (10/20-25/50 FTP/UB/PP) Lucid Dream (2/4-5/10 FTP) Hugo_Busto in front (10/20 ftp)

wow, nice!

Are you living in this house permanently? I'd still love to sweat you sometime. For the record I do focus, I just hit a major bump in the road in March which destroyed any confidence I had.

You can check my posts on 2+2 "orig!naL" and I just canceled my CR membership after 2 years.

I continue to run like complete ass. Go me. I love getting the money in ahead, thinking about the **** you don't want to happen and watching it happen.

Here is today again.

edit: I have no idea why its saying I only lost ~250 BBs because I lost 5 buyins. Maybe its because I was playing on the deep tables so pokerEV ****ed up the level I'm playing at?

last couple weeks even with running like **** IMO. I'm such a BR nit it sickens me. Anyway, I guess the good thing is I'm just about rolled for 50nl again and hopefully back to 100nl shots soon enough.

Eh, I'm currently on a $500 below EV run at 25NL over the last 3 weeks or so. Your definition or running like ass is a bit off

I'm about to leave for Spain. I won't have a chance to play any poker until about July 22nd.

I'm glad to be leaving on a good note. I continued my assault today on 25nl/50nl. I'm playing my A game, but I'm also running hotter than the sun in terms of the cards I'm being delt.

I did loose KK to AA AIPF today and THEN AA to KK when villains KK rivered a flush AIPF.

Results from today (July 1st):



Creative I wouldn't mind talking about flop textures in 3-bet pots. I won't be able to until late July though.
