***Update: 25/01/2010***

finally a new update. Haven't played since August so no need to update. Back to college in September so I've been too busy. Finally played a bit this month on Everest for a change. Played 25nl 6max and clear a $300 deposit bonus as well and I've done pretty well. Siwtched now to FR on FT since there's no realy rakeback on Everest.

*****July Results/August goals*****

Hmmm stressful month. Signed up for 2+2 team challenge as Capt so I spent the month grinding 25nl, ugh vomit. Ship the first prize though. But christ I'm never doing this again.

[] redline skills

So I'm pretty much skipping and taking 100nl shoots everytime I hit $2k, dropped up and down about 4 times so far, cock. Still gonna stick at it for a bit longer and I might up my shot taking limit to 25 buy-ins if I can't crack it in the next week or so.

August goals
[] full time at 100nl by months end
[] 30k hands at 100nl by months end

*****June Results******

Bit late on this. Here's my graph for June:

Mostly 20NL with some 50Nl thrown in. Winrate @ 20nl was only 5.65BB/100 over 10k hands. Played well enough though and I've been tilting a lot less as well which is great. For July I'm going back to FR for a month to do a team challenge on 2+2, gonna post a full update tomorrow, 31k hands in already though!

14/06/09: A tale of Two sites

So I've been mainly playing Ipoker but I like a switch every now again cos quite frankly Ipoker software is pretty poor and annoying. So I got a $50 bonus for party(whoop whoop baller) so I decided to give that go at NL 25 and a bit at NL 50, epic fail.

I found the games alot more agressive then the nit passive fest Ipoker is. Even NL25 on party is more aggressive then Ipoker $50nl. Alot of 3betting and c/r on the flop. I lost 2 buy-ins at NL 50 and then 8 at NL 25, alot of spew involved which I haven't done for awhile so I was a bit disappointed with that. I cleared the bonus and was going to keep plugging away until I went to broke even but I pulled that plug on that when I got to 5 buy-ins down and proceeded to lose another 3 in about 5 minutes.

So I thought that was enough of my vacation from Ipoker and it's nice 50% rakeback so I went back to Ipoker this evening which went brilliant, obviously rewarding me for my coming back I finished up 6 buy-ins today despite getting running K's into Aces twice against 2 giant nits.

Update: 04/06/09 Better late then never

So I haven't played much in the last two month's but I have been getting back into it again and back at NL $50 6max. 2k hands in so far this month and up 3 buy-ins running at 31/26/3.6 which is alot looser then I usually am.

Some hands so far.

Hand 1:

Villan was 18/13/1.4 over 253 hands, however I didnt remeber him so it was either old or datamined.

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with 55 of hearts 77 of hearts

3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB calls $1.25, 1 fold

Flop: ($3.50) 99 of diamonds 44 of hearts 33 of diamonds (2 players)

SB bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50

Probaly a bad call but I have a GS, backdoor flush draw and a back door OESD so I decided to peel. I never respect people who donk and usually raise them but with his nitty stats I didnt want to get blown away.

Turn: ($8.50) 66 of diamonds (2 players)

SB bets $6.75, Hero raises to $18, SB raises to $53.38, Hero calls $30.41 all in

Never good when the card you need is the one that completes the flush. Still I have to raise here and once he shoves over me I can't fold although I wasn't hugely happy but there's enough sets/two pair in his range to make it standard.

River: ($105.32) AA of diamonds (2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $105.32

SB shows 99 of hearts TT of hearts

Hero wins $102.32

SB wins $4.97

(Rake: $-1.97)

eh, I didn't expect him to turn over that from his stats.

Hand 2:

I posted this on boards looking for some help. I was fairly lost on the flop, pretty annoying spot. The general consesus was a fold which is probaly right, I think JT is a call. but J9 is just to vunerable.

Hand 3:

I hate this kind of spots where I don't know if my hand is strong enough for a raise and I can't really raise fold either. Villan was unknown. Looking back I should really raise I think to $25 or so. I've made to river calls with the best hand where I should of raised and I have to really get over my nittiness.
