march wrap-up

Pretty dissapointing month I suppose. Compared to Jan and february it sucked, but pretty average relative to last year's results.

I went through an $8.5k downswing, so I'm just grinding 1/2NL again for the next few weeks until I get my groove back.

I didn't play as much as I should have, but it was hard to put in hours while running so bad. Hopefully this month is a bit better and can run good at higher stakes. I should make a lot of money in bonuses. Like $5k.

I also got harrington on cash games books today, so I'll be giving a review of those when I'm done. First 80 pages have been terribly boring and basic though.

So I hit the 200k VPP mark today.
Way behind pace, I know.

I had a brutal last 2 weeks, and I'm recovering from my worst downswing ever. Should still end up with a pretty decent month though.

I'm really hanging my hat on thier being a double VPP promotion in May, or I'll have like zero chance at elite.

Finsihing with like 800k VPPs would be pretty lame.

I'm waiting for my quesidilla to be delivered and it's been like an hour. That's the only reason I'm posting. SO I'll end here b/c I have nothing to say.

japanese guitar hero

It was a hard enough time to find guitar hero in korea, but I'm glad I did. That game is so addictive and has probably cost me 1000s of dollars in EV.

I'm not sure what compelled me, but I decided to search for guitar hero videos on youtube. Came up with this, the japanese guitar hero. I wonder how badly this guy would destroy the game?

Anyhoo, I'm slowly gettin back on pace with 153k/169k pts. Had a realllly good day at cash games yesterday and March is off to an awesome start.

february wrap up

Another great month in the books. February was my best month ever. I played 120k hands at a nice 2.5ptbb+ winrate, $3k in bonuses and the $4k tourny score. So you can figure it out more or less with a little math.

Considering its the shortest month of the year, and I was in Hong Kong for a while, I feel great about it.

As for SNE, I have 147,500 points while pace is 166,666, which is ok because I'm slowly making up ground. I'm gonna try to put in an extra hour every day this month and I should be just about caught up.

So in March I should clear my first milestone bonus for $2k, plus the regular $3k in other bonuses. I'm planning on putting in my most hands ever, so hopefully I can top my best month for a third month in a row?? It will be tough, but I'll do my best.
