February in the Books

February was an unusual month, about 20K hands or halfway through I was even in money terms and down about 100 big bets. From there I went on one of those meteoric upswings where I won roughly 600 big bets and 60K in 10K hands.

I think I played a lot better this month. I was sick for about 4 or 5 days and playing my C game. Aside from that it was mostly my B game or better so I'm happy with that. I spent a lot of time taking notes on regulars and semi-regulars and focusing on areas where I think they're exploitable. At this point, I think my default game with no adjustments is probably a break-even to .5 BB/100 winner and the rest of my profit is coming from those adjustments.

I really haven't been in a blogging mood, hence the lack of updates. That could change but the days of multiple strategy posts in a month are probably gone with so much of my competition aware of this blog. I might write a book at some point but probably not till I'm done playing which I don't foresee anytime soon.

Looking forward to March I have my annual Vegas trip with my best friends I grew up with. It's something I look forward to all year and is a great time. I need to continue to be focused and motivated at the tables and that's the plan.

Good luck in March to everyone reading.


  1. How do you keep your emotions under control during that 10K hand stretch? Congrats on another good month. -JG

  2. It was 20K hands but who's counting? lol

    Experience is probably the biggest factor in containing my emotions. I've been through it so many times before that I know it's just a matter of playing through it.
