Finally another poker update from me. I returned to the tables in March after a few months hiatus. I was super busy with life, which I kinda expected and also hinted on it in one of the previous blog entries. Still didn’t really expect to be away for such a long time, but family will always be first.
So I’ve played a whooping 59 hours of poker in March and April together. Yeah, I know. I didn’t win any money unfortunately, but at least I started playing and studying again. If I had to guess I’d say I’m breakeven/slightly losing player in PartyPoker’s NL10 fast forward pool and in Unibet’s NL25 pool. Cashback and bonuses are “saving me” for now. 🙂
In terms of mistakes I’m still doing the most common things, that is calling down with A-high too much (used of it from Fixed Limit), making far to many fancy plays where they are not needed. I don’t even have a 3bet/4bet bluffing range and I’m stacking everyone with QQ easily and so on… So there’s A LOT of room for improvement.
My goal is to beat both of above mentioned pools by the end of May. That doesn’t mean I’ll move up necessarily, but I also won’t be shy from making some shots. But I have to admit that it’s really refreshing to just sit down at NL10 table, open a beer and have a no-worry session from time to time with some random button clicking 😀 Couldn’t really afford that in previous years when I was playing seriously. At least I know that wherever I’ll be in terms of poker-seriousness, I’ll always be a fan of the game.
