Another update

Well one thing is for sure .... the standard of play at $200nl is way better than the standard of $100nl .

And so far .. its been a mixed bag for me this month ...2 winning sessions in the last 11 , although one was a 5 buy in winning session ..

Its ok though ... still losing my rag due to frustration , but im getting done by more suckouts due to the nature of some of these players .

I got all in with KK v QQ and the river was the Q again today ... but also lost with AK when i played it fast preflop and post flop but was done by a OESD coming in on the river with 89 , still not sure why he called the flop and the fact he called the turn leaving him with only $10 left ...

And then to cap it off , i had AJ on a J high flop and put someone all in on the turn only for them to call with a flush draw , but a K on the river means he won with K3 :)

Its all ok though ... still under for my quota this month ... played 9240 hands and only showing a profit of $734.66 , which is also under my target for the month .

Ive stopped trying to bluff these people ...or most of them that just wont fold ... as ive spilled a few $$ this way so far ..

Feel im getting my act together ..just need to control my frustration levels sometimes .. but overall ... im imporving slightly ... mainly because i know i can beat these players over time and can expect a few bad beats ..

I actually feel like playing at the moment ... and really have asperations of improving a few aspects of my poker over the next few months ..

January update

The goals for this year are basically to play more hands ... only played 100k last year, which if i want to make good money ... is not really enough IMO ..

This year i want to play roughly 1k hands a day ( or say a minimun of 30k hands a month ) ...

Ive stopped playing FR but ive started playing the $100 8 player turbos ... which im finding a lot of fun ..

Im 6 tabling and i find the less time i have to think ... the less complicated poker gets ... it also means im quite switched on and feel this is helping my game.

My goals are not huge so far ... it takes me under 3 hours to complete 1k hands and i tend to do this in 2 90 minute sessions ... and my early goals are to make $100 a day .

Due to internet problems .. ive only played 361 hands today .... and so far ive played 4470 hands this month, so im just under my target for the month so far ... but im showing a profit of $632.76 , so im ahead of my target in this aspect .. ( which is allways good ) :)

Lets hope it stays like this !
