Has been really a sick couple of weeks, and I recently won 6 out my last 8 cash game sessions, although no major cashes, and my graph looks like this (attached ).. This is for the period jan 2012 till date.. if you look at the last part of the worm, it is looking up and thats great news for me. I dont want to speak too soon though, as I had a few crazy up and down months, and also this is not any significant upswing, but I am really looking forward to the rest of the year, having fixed some important leaks in both my tournament and cash game, I am really looking forward to the future. I have also found a lot of my strengths and weaknesses over the past couple of months. Despite some sick downswings, I have averaged 4.98 BB/hour for 373 hours in live cash games this year and a RoI of 35% in live tournies over a period of 38 tourneys this year, I cashed out in 9 (tournament events, deals, satellites and local tournies). My weakness is that i suck online, and that is an area I have to improve in the future, but I am doing good live. I have to work on getting my concentration level up for online play, and I definitely suck at multi-tabling. I really want to make the most of the next few months and finish the year on a high note.
Many people think that poker is a way to easy riches, but the best definition of poker that I have found is that, “its a hard way to make an easy living”. Never give up, sooner or later, your edge comes through. For this edge to come through, you have to put in volumes, thats the only way to win at this game. Also, have a detachment with the cash that you bring to the table. U may be carrying a lot of money in your pocket at all times, but remember that out of this, only a little percentage is your winning, try to avoid the temptation of using your poker bankroll for anything else.
Until next week, Cheers!!
