September in the Books

I ran very well this month and it ended up being one of my better months of the year. I also was lucky enough to cash in the 5K WCOOP main event for about 10K - this was one of the tournaments Poker Stars put me in from being SuperNova Elite. It also ended a streak of about twenty consecutive Stars tournaments where I hadn't cashed.

In other news, I'm now partnering with a friend (and blog reader) in the 100-200 games on Stars. So essentially what this means is I now have the option of playing another 50-100 table whenever a good 1-2 game is going since I have half the action. This should translate into more money making opportunities and more profit. I'm hoping the more I play the games, the more comfortable I'll be with the swings even though I'm only absorbing half, and ultimately play the games on my own.

On the VPP front, I'm still about 8.5 days behind. I multitabled more 10-20 this month to keep up pace and that's the plan for the next few months. There will likely be some days in October where I 6-8 table those games for several hours and earn 2-3 days worth of VPPS.

September Update

I've run fairly well so far in September, up about 300 big bets and 18K through half the month. I missed about three days of playing from attending my brother's wedding and have been playing a ton of hands since I got back to make up for it. I'm now about 10 days behind SNE pace and look to narrow the gap by the end of the month. I don't have anything major planned until Christmas so hopefully I can get a lot of hands in between now and then.

On a personal note, I either bruised or cracked a rib playing kickball of all things. I haven't been to the doctor yet but the way it's still hurting I'm pretty sure I cracked it. If you're wondering how I broke a rib playing kickball, I tried stealing home with a head first dive and it ended up being a rib first dive. Oh and I'm getting old, that too. If a broken rib wasn't enough, they disallowed my steal because the pitcher allegedly had the ball before I left third. I wasn't in any condition to argue as I jogged back to third grimacing.

Here's what September has looked like so far:
