July wrap

Hey guys

Long time no update, though in my defense i have been grinding a TON. Juggling a 8-6, 30k hands of poker and a wife is a tedious job, trust me. Anyway the big highlight of the month is that I got convinced by some people that I am actually under-rolled for multi-tabling 3/6 HU NL and PLO in reg battles, so i got a 50-50 stake from a HU sicko for like 40k hands. Unfortunately 2/4 is also part of the stake. I get to keep my action at all other levels.

Heres the graph in PTBB for 2/4 3/6 at about the 10k hand mark (90% NL, rest PLO all HU)

[/B][/COLOR]around 6-7k, also played a bunch of hands at 50nl when action at higher stakes were nada.
Most importantly: no. of donkaments played for the month = ZERO 😎

Also got to know (via skype) and got talking to a fair number of indian grinders which was really nice (u know who you are and u guys are great), maybe I’ll drop into a live indian poker-room sometimes in the near future and get to meet all these wonderful folk (thoughts of playing live poker though makes me break into instant sweat)

One word of caution though for the real young amongst you indian grinders, especially those in school (undergrad). Dropping out of college to play full-time is really a bad idea, it might seem gung-ho and all that you are following your dream and all that stuff. But the reality of the situation is that online poker as of now has a really murky landscape and games are getting tougher by the day. Unless the biggest market for online poker comes back online, a boom for online poker is not in the horizon.

Finishing a degree doesnt take that much and will give you a whole number of fall-back options. I know a large number of young guys from euro countries who are beast players (eg, discomonkey on PS, tilt_dnk also on stars) who have far higher win-rates as well as binks than you and me, but are all disciplined enough to complete college.

Sigh I think this ended up being extremely preachy and enormously long.
