Grand Total:


Very good month, consdiering my goal was $5k. And I still made 10k...if you count my teaching job. :D

In other news, I finally got a 2nd monitor. 20inch samsung widescreen (will post picz later). Now I'm dual monitoring like all the cool kids, and it makes my life that much easier.
In more exciting news, the basketball season starts today. To celebrate my good month, I dropped ~$100 on the raptors to win the NBA championship.
Whatever, you're not invited to my party when they ship me my $22,000 (220:1 odds).

This is all mr.face's doing... I know it.

Poker tournaments are possibly the most emotionally draining thing ever. There's nothing worse than playing for 5 hours and then getting shafted on a coinflip. Ugh. And nobody understands my frustration.

Today I woke up just in time to register for a tournament. It's an $11 rebuy tourny with a 55k gaurantee (1st place is usually 15k these days) . I won this tourny about 2 years about, and it's still my biggest win to date. So anyways, I hadn't planned on playing this, but this was the first chance I've had to since I got to Korea, so I did.

5 HOURS and 1600 players later, I bust in 13th place. I invested $33 and won about $500. I should be happy right? No.

Tournaments pay offs are so top heavy, the $500 win is laughable. 9th pays $1000, 8th $1500, 4th $4500, 2nd $10,000, 1st $15,000. And I come away with $500. Bleh. But no one gets it...

"YOU WON $500, STFU!"

But I can't help but be upset.... its so dissapointing. I hate tournsments... you're never satisfied unless you win the damn things.

I can't believe I'm up $1500 over the last 24hrs and feel bad. Die tournaments, die.

late night edit: I just hit 5k during my last session -- $5200 for the month so far... goodnight

Still doing damage...
$3,600 over 12,300hands for the month ($125/hr)

I'm closing in on 30k profit I think... too lazy to look up all numbers.

I'll update at month's end. 5k or bust - gogogogogo

Phase #1 - Run hot
Phase #2 - ?????????
Phase #3 - Profit!!
Mid-month update
Up $2,100 in cash games over like 4,000 hands. $188/hr, no big deal. Plus the ~$300 from the casino and I'm clsoe to 2.5k for the month in less than 13hours work. Sometimes this job is pretty sweet.
For you number guys:
$1,575 at $200NL
$280 at $200PL
$320 at 400NL (over only 90 hands)

I dropped some money trying out 6handed, and didnt like it -- Full ring is much easier IMO. I also made a bit of cash playing some low stakes games for fun with friends.
I'm sticking to my 5k goal for the month.... This will hopefully materialize if I play another 20k hands. If I can manage that, and still keep having all this fun outside of poker, I'll be a v. happy guy.

I have hardly played since my last post. I did play about 500 hands yesterday and about 1500 today.

2,500 hands so far for $600.

I intend to kick it into gear for the rest of the month... about 1000hands/day. I want to crack 5k.

And I'm off...

Ok, I lied. I played some more for the month and booked another nice win ($600 or so).
September cash game totals are now $6,300.

Oh and I'm up $50 for october so far. ship it. ;)

I have a lot of work to do this month if I want to pull in another 10k. I'll check in soon with updates.

edit: casino bonus good for $337
