June is pretty much breakeven

Sorry for the lack of updates. Nothing really too exciting to report on the poker front. I'm playing a decent amount, but I'm not winning as much as I was. I am up just a couple buy-ins for the month. I'll have to have some really good days here the rest of the month to break my monthly average of $1000 (Including bonus/rakeback).

The last week or so has consisted of two really good days, followed by two crappy days. The last two days have been pretty bad. I cant hit for crap, and I am getting sucked out constantly. Yesterday, I got AK and AQ a total of 17 times where I saw a flop. I hit an A, K (or Q if I had AQ) a total of 3 times. 43 pairs, and only 3 sets (with of course one losing to a hit gutshot).

I did play some tournaments last night. I made it to the final table of The Mookie (but didn't cash), and then cashed in two others, the $10 rebuy at Stars, and the $10 rebuy at Full Tilt. I went out in the Stars about 50 people after the bubble burst. I pushed in the cutoff with A4o (I had about 8 BBs left) and some clown in the BB called off a third of his stack with 65o and of course won. I like these rebuys tournaments, and have made it deep the last couple time playing them. Plus, I never had to rebuy in either of the them last night!

I also played in PokerStars 10 PM EST $15+1.5. I went out with about a third of the way through. Blinds are 25/50 and I find AA in middle position (my stack is 1760). There were two limpers and I bump it to 300. the BB and one of the limpers called. Flop was T32 rainbow. Pot is at about 1000, and the limper leads out for 300. I triple his raise, and he pushes and I obviously call. He has 62o. And the river is a 6. gg me.

I also made it deep in the 26k guaranteed busting out just before the bubble. I had some very loose donk sitting right behind me, and he called my push of AKs with 87o and won. There was a raise in front of me, and I pushed with an M of around 10, and this guy calls with 87o, lol.

All that time playing MTTs, and I profited a whopping $25. Not sure why I bother tournaments anymore (Don't I always say this?). Aren't I due for a big score?

Not Much Going On

Took a mini-vacation last weekend, so I haven't played all that much poker. Maybe only 4000 hands so far this month, and I am down just a couple buy-ins.

I've been kinda bored by poker the last couple days, and it has crept into my game some. Because when I am bored, I try and do something to liven it up, and that means playing a lot looser. And when you play more of a LAG (Loose Aggressive) game, your variance goes up. Plus, I'm not hitting any of my draws, and I am not getting paid off on my flopped sets.

I have played about 4000 hands, and I have only flopped sets 16 times. The most I've won from those 16 sets is $69, $49, $27, and $20. Average profit from my sets is only about $8. That sucks big time. I think there have only been 5 of those 16 where I even saw a turn card and 3 seeing a showdown. Blah.


For some reason, I've watched most of the NBA Finals games this year. What a boring series. I don't think it can get much worse? Sure, San Antonio is a good team, but they are boring as heck. It sure would have been nice to see Phoenix and Chicago in the finals. Or Lebron James actually playing good basketball.

May 2007 Results

Had a really good month. One of my best ever actually. So what am I doing better now than in the past couple months? I think the main thing is my table selection, which of course is made a lot easier with PA HUD. I try and find the donks, and I try and stay away from the regulars. Pretty simple really.

Here is the overall graph:

With my ring game stats:

I played MTTs three nights this month, and lost 103.11. I had two cashes, both in the $10 Rebuy at Stars.

According to Pokertracker, I put in about 45 hours at the tables. If you factor in rakeback, I made $49 an hour. Not too bad for a casual 100NL player!

I did a lot of datamining at Full Tilt, and according to my stats, I have 5000 or more hands on 79 people. My BB/100 is tops among those 79 people! That's right folks, PokerFool is the best 100NL 6 max player at Full Tilt! *knocks on wood*

I fully expect the doom switch to be flipped any moment now. :)
