A bit behind schedule

Falling a bit behind my goal for March as I found it difficult to play while I was playing the Sunday Millions Special. Had a deep run there, but a huge brain fart lead to my demise. Finished 2177/33k runners for $540.

After a rough start to March and being down 15BI (minor swing), I have had a few great sessions to bring my stats up.

Love the Variance

Found myself once again on the happy side of variance.

A quick session on Friday morning produced some awesome results and returned my overall ROI in 45 mans back to the approx 20% where I have been residing.

I am currently on the lookout for a 180 man coach to make improvements there.

Time to March On

Well March has started the way February ended .... on a downswing.

I am keeping my goal at 120 played for March and have started adding in $2.50 - 180 man turbos.

My first 2 session for the month ended in a loss of $120 with only 2 small min cashes along the way. Hope the rungood comes soon.

February started off on a high note but ended with a free fall.

Even though I essentially missed almost 10 days of play due to sickness, I still managed 100 games. I think I pushed a bit too hard to make 100 and played when I was not really feeling up to it.

Games Played: 100/120
Hrs played: 15:40
ABI: $8.76
Profit: $62.00 :(
ROI: 7% :(

Been Feeling like Crap

Only 3 tabled a 5 game session. Man it's a good thing I am sick, cause running 3 tables would make me want to slit my wrists.

Anyways, I managed to finish up $46 (1 win of the 5)  for a 108% ROI

Short Sunday Session

Forgot my last session update:

Spent some time reviewing my hands from Friday afternoon and while I saw some hands I should have played differently, it was mainly variance.

Played only one short session on Sunday. Was really hoping for more, but poor planning on my part for Saturday screwed up my Sunday plans

Really frustrating start to my Sunday session, when I busted 3 of my 1st tournaments within in under 10 minutes.

One of them I admit I played horribly. I have to remember not to "chase" with weak hands.

February started of good (sort of)

Played a 20 game session this morning for a nice profit including my 1st win at the $15 45 man turbos.

The afternoon session was a whole other story. Variance (or at least I hope so) raised it's ugly head. 15 game session that gave back almost all my profit from the morning session. At least I finished the day on the plus side.

So far for Feb:

Games Played: 35 <- all today
Remaining Games: 95
Hrs played: 4.25
ABI: $8.80
Profit: $18.00
ROI: 5%
