Long Cold Winter
It will be a long cold winter if I continue to run like I did last night!I played 20 games on Stars,bubbled 4 times and lost $240.When I have good nights I don't list all my winning hands and I'm not about to induce insomnia by going into the ton of suckouts I suffered last night.I think I managed one 3rd place and one 4th place finish from those 20 games, but in the cold light of day I just have to sook it up and move on.
Here's one wee sample of last nights nonsense.Ok,I thought,I'm finally going to win a hand even if it is against a shortstack.Maybe I can build from here...
I'd like to be winning around $1k per month and although sitting about $250 down half way through this month aint good,there's still plenty of time to get back into profit.For some reason the last few months have all been similar.I was actually down about $750 at the same point so I'm not going to panic or get too worried now.Don't get me wrong,it is very very frustrating to run like complete and utter shit over many sngs but I've read enough downswing tales from pro grinders to know it may be shit but it's pretty standard shit!
Apart from at weekends I've not put much volume in either recently.I'm considering cashing out about $10k of my $12k roll to pay off my car loan.The value of the pound v the dollar means it may be a good time to withdraw some funds and a smaller roll may help me focus more.( not that focus had anything to do with last nights poker carnage!) Perhaps I'll wait a month or too first.Hmmm.
Ok,off to Ibrox for the football and then buying a new vaccum cleaner.Ain't life exciting....!
