Feb - +£1,078.95
As you can see, I got off the year to an absolute flyer, with 2 wins and a 2nd in the £8K on DTD aswell as a 1st and a 4th on the live front. And tbh, I thought I was invincible and could pwn anyone, how wrong that was.
Mar - -£1,323.20
Then came March, I was buying into big tournaments, and playing a lot of $3/6 and $5/10 to get even, and was clearly tilting hard, and doing ridiculous things. I remember under raising all in with Q high on the turn once, he called with K high and took it, so stupid. But I believe March was a good thing, it brought me to earth and let me know that I have to play good all the time and cant afford to make poor decisions regarding game selection if I am to continue doing it for a living. And It could have been even worse if it wasn’t for a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th and the casino!
Apr - +£22.53
So, lesson learned and onto April…which was another very poor month but my game selecting had improved and I was sticking to tournaments mainly and not running too hot.
May - +£1,274.59
May was a very important month confidence wise and I managed to notch up some tourney wins/decent cashes. As well as making a few hundred from the sng challenge myself and Horneris had. It gave me the belief that I could continue on this path. Live was a blank month in May and ended up losing £69 despite having 10% of Chip Rich’s £1.6K score down in Luton.
Jun - +£1,239.35
I’ve really enjoyed June, and had a great month personally, not on the money front but on the life front. Beginning with an unforgettable trip to Dublin with Linux and then a great week of golf and beers in Spain. Online poker has been pretty poor again, but live has been great. I’ve not played much (6 tourneys) but feel I have got somewhere. I have played my first 2 £50+ slow structured freeze-outs and am proud to say coming 4/150 and 2/70 for £600 and £630 respectably. As well as a HU chop in the £10 w/1RBY for a further £200. I have been playing live poker at casino’s for 15 months now, and that’s my first ‘comma’ month live. So ship it, slow fo’s ftw ldo.
