Change of plan and 3r180 chop

Just a short update.

So much for the goals from last post. I didnt stick the plan of only playing $2.5s. Loaded up 2x $3r180s and struck a decent deal HU in one:

Chip stacks Villan - 551K rchpro - 349K
1st was for $563 and 2nd $375
Chopped for $425

Chopping is gay but thought it was a really good deal.
Going to start with 2 x $8/180s and 1 x $3r180 per 9 table session then once I reach $1K bankroll I will probally play 4x$8 2x 3r180s and 3x$2.5.

Bankroll: $760

Slowly progressing.

Since my last blog entry (14th of July) Ive played 304 $2.5/180s and my net profits are -$2.40. Now Ive only just realised this, but I'm not disappointed because I was on a downswing for the first 200 games and instead of losing motivation and therefore playing less games I just played through the variance. I didn't even notice that Ive been 'breakeven' for the past month.

One aspect that concerns me a little about is my Heads up play. Since I started back Ive played 443 games.  Out of that Ive had 49 cashes (five 3rd place, eight 2nd place and three 1st place). So that's eight times I could of had an extra $38 profit, $304 in total. I can remember a few HU hands were just beats that I could do nothing about. This hand from the other day it was basically the first few hands HU. Do I need to be more patient ?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, 2.5 Tournament, 3500/7000 Blinds 700 Ante (2 handed)
SB (t157930)

rchpro (BB) (t112070)

rchpro's M: 9.42

Preflop: rchpro is BB with A, 2

SB bets t157230 (All-In), rchpro calls t104370 (All-In)

Flop: (t224140) 3, 10, 6 (2 players, 2 all-in)

Turn: (t224140) K (2 players, 2 all-in)

River: (t224140) 2 (2 players, 2 all-in)

Total pot: t224140


SB had 6, 6 (three of a kind, sixes).
rchpro had A, 2 (one pair, twos).
Outcome: SB won t224140

Going to review all eight 2nd place finishes and see where I can improve. I'm still doing well at them since I started back running at 25 ROI% which I would like to see double.

Goals until next update:

  • Only Play $2.5/180s until bankroll at $600
  • Keep away from zoom poker
  • Increase volume when off work  (sometimes 12 table etc)

bankroll: $400

oh and Robert Van Persie :D
