Halfway There

Been steady climbing against a steady flow of beats (about £100 under EV) and some real idiots on the tables to get past the halfway mark on my mission to a £1k bankroll
might start to buy in for a bit more then £10 at the moment but might wait until i get to £600 or even better at least get to 5k hands or summit, im not sure when i can classify whether im on a heater or not lol!! figs updated on the side, really need to get some mtts under my belt soon

Lol Weekend

so i started the weekend with £390 as the bankroll and i end it with £405. in between it has been £485 and £310, standard Omaha i guess. had two real bad sessions at minus 7 buyins a peace and some stupid bad beats including the dreaded villain hitting his 1 outer quads, and i also hopefully hit my only degen moment when i played some £1-£2 headsup as i was on a different computer which did not have my trusty tilt breaker on. Luckily i scooped and left after a sick call... River: (£60.00, 2 players) Ah BB checks, Hero bets £30.00, BB raises to £112.50, Hero calls £53.00 BB shows Ks Qc 8c 6s (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 62%, Flop 85%, Turn 55%) Hero shows 4d 5s 7c 3c (Straight, Five High) (Pre 38%, Flop 15%, Turn 45%) Hero wins £225.00 only thing i could of been worried about was the flush but i just had that feeling that he didnt have it, would of been sick if he did though, as people have been showing up with all kinds if shit. look forward to rakeback tomorrow, figure it might be a decent £50 or so and it will help with my climb. aside from poker i have done absolutely fuck all, i dont seem to go out and my spare time when mrs and kids arent about is watching footie or playing the ps3, gonna be foocked in 3 weeks when the season is over! hope you all had fruitful weekends. PS ANYONE KNOW WHY THIS POST IS JUST A WALL OF TEXT? IT HAS SPACES ETC WHEN I TYPE IT BUT WHEN PUBLISHED IT GOES TO SHIT Daly

Nearly Doubled up

just been steadily dipping into games when i get a spare minute, no-where near "grinding" as i've only played 1384 hands but i have logged over 10 hours somehow. The last couple of days has seen my play a bit of holdem where i lost £12 but i also got my first rakeback payment of £36 which is pretty good for a low volume player. hopefully can keep this up, need to motivate myself to play some mtts soon.

Tilt, Stop Loss - Kids!!!!!!

argh.... shouldnt really blame the kids but just had my first major losing session, was playing fine across 3 tables of Omaha, kids were being noisy so i told them to be quiet and was ignored, 2 mins later my 2 year old is screaming in pain as they had been rough with her (and they're all girls) this pissed me off no end and i then played like a clown until my tilt software kicked in when i got to minus 100 which based on the combo of tables was around £80 down.

so down to £64 profit and cant play again till tomorrow, but probabaly for the best as i want to drink and watch the football.

Great first 200 hands

wow these shallow tables at 25/50c Omaha on ipoker are redic.

i'm sticking with my same plan as before, and obviously not one for the poker purists, but im buying in £10 on any omaha table and hoping to get involved with one of the numerous dribblers who play 80% of hands, even if i get it in with a reg as its Omaha there is always a chance!

55% rakeback is obviously the sweetener.

ive literally played an hour over a couple of lunch breaks and im up 8 buyins in 168 hands!

just got to keep it up and not tilt when the losses arrive, and they always arrive!!

Tilt Breaker will be my saviour.

hope youre all playing and running good.
