Found a great PLO forum and have been reading how the better players play through certain situations, think thats helping aswell, always good to learn from the better players, and read their thought process etc etc. Never to late to learn! 71% through my deposit bonus so should clear it maybe early May! Hope May's going to be a little kinder and i play a little better, could do with a half decent profit to boost confidence, still going to top bankroll up, as at the minute i'm playing under rolled for PLO25 as i never redeposited when i went tilt monkey spew at 2/4!
Another thing that bugs me at the minute, is sad keyboard warriors and their sad little circles, some people think they are greatest thing on earth (non poker wise and poker wise) when they have a sad group of fuck wits backing them up, and trawling 2+2 all day and night and pinching others peoples creativeness does not make you what you think you are, neither does writing a blog etc class as full time work, and benefits isn't a wage its there to help you whilst you look for a job, on the other hand those that play poker for a living, you have my respect, but it doesn't make you a better person than anyone else, so get off your high horse and stop getting a inflated ego from all your butt kissers!
GL at the tables!

TIME TO REFLECT:- Its been a few hours since the original post, and now i have had time to simmer or cool down, i dont think i could of done very little to change my massive downswing, surely i want the donks to put their money in bad? I've gone through a few crucial hands and i dont think i've done much wrong, i'm just going to put it down to bad and very unlucky variance! I've blocked myself from playing another poker site for 7 days, and will probably take the rest of the month off, hopefully rake race money will clear most of my losses, and i may top back up from last month winnings to around the $1500 mark and just grind PLO20 from now on, a level where i feel i have a advantage, and where with $1500 i will be comfortably rolled (most of last nights losses came from PLO50 and above!) If it wasn't for playing higher i'd be up $90 today.........maybe thats the level (or more importantly the level of my bankroll) where i'm the most comfortable!
GL to all, see you all in May!
QUESTION:- Isn't it weird 85% of the blogs of the players i follow are having a nightmare April? I can feel a massive change for May!

Anyway i get home safely and just brush the experience off as her being pissed and me over reacting to her fun. But today i made the fatal error by excepting mates wifes facebook friendship, and a couple of hours later i'm in even more shock to get a private message from mates wife, basically saying the offer of no strings attach sex is avaliable whenever my mate is away with work (which in Mon-Fri) GULP! How weird is that? Now i have to either ignore it or tell my best mate his wife is a cock hungry whore (his first wife was the same, and it nearly killed him when he finally came to his sensors!)

The site i've chosen was not one of the 3 i listed in my last post, i opted for Littlewoods due to the weak fish but for some reason they have decided to close my poker account and not let me open a new one or reinstate my old one, weird but its there loss. So instead i opted for Everest Poker, basically i was looking for a non rakeback site with weak fish, where i'd be able to dominate the games against far less skilled players. I think i choose right as i've binked a tidy score playing PLO25 and 50 against some complete gutter fish! Today winnings has seen me double this weeks winnings in 2 sessions, which is obviously running hot, but i basically stayed patient and waited for the fish to make the mistakes, generally most of my money came from flush over flushes and higher straights over lower, the less skilled somehow can't seem to find a fold, which is ofcourse nice! I'll continue the grind until i'm rolled enough to skim profits off and maybe move back to a rakeback paying site, but for now my home is Everest!

I've made $147 this week, not including RB or bonuses and i have cashed out all monies out of all accounts back to neteller and will make a decision on what site i'm going to grind fully on out of these 3:-
Powerpoker - my old faithfull, 33% RB, full of fish, a site i've consistantly won on, decent bonuses through the gold chip scheme!
Betsafe - decent traffic, 50% through a $500 deposit, cashback equivalent to rakeback but at a low %
LuckyAce/Littlewoods/Pacific - a very old favourite, weakest standard of player i've come across on the net, may be able to find a skin and get some kind of deposit bonus etc, but no rakeback etc
So i'm taking the next day or so off, will total relax from poker then restart the grind, get to around $2k Bankroll then start skimming off a profit per week/month. Should have around $400-500 rake race payments next month (thats how much i've chopped and changed) so i'll be adding them to the bankroll, need to get back playing seriously and not mucking about, just look at last month when i stuck to one site and won big!
Note to self:- Sort your fucking head out!!!!
Cracker of a goal, not that i support Spurs or Gunners but great to see goals like this!
Poker struggling at the minute like i have been for most of this month, its going to be nothing like last months big pay day! Just can't seem to get a winning run going, no matter if iam playing correctly. Flamingo bet i lost $40 for the day yesterday, but should of been around $100-150 up if the donks hadn't hit massive suckouts or i had won my flips. Deposited on Stars to play some 180 manners but after 25 mins i was bored stupid and basically dumped myself out of them, guess i dont have the concentration or the patience to play NLHE mtt/sngs, so i'll be withdrawing from there pretty soon!

Oh what to do, what to do!

For anybody who reads this and doesn't have rakeback/VIP status on their accounts WTF!!!! is up with you? Rakeback can turn a bad month into a break even and a winning one into a even sweeter one! Anyone with any complete sense should take advantage of sites of giving you money back, so i've affiliated myself to a very good professional site and can offer some pretty amazing deals! These guys i work with are amazing and offer upto 40%+ on some of the biggest sites out there, they are very professional, answer all questions/problems quickly and efficiently and are by far the best i've come across in over 6 years of online poker playing. If anyone wants to know more, you email or msn me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Another massive bonus of signing up through me is some amazing rake races. For those who dont know what they are, basically the top earning rakers win bonus cash just for playing their normal game on certain sites. Now normal rakeback sites offer these and they are flooded with pro grinders who clear all the top prizes month in month out, well i can offer races that are so quiet you wont believe how easy the cash is, its basically free money! Heres a taster of some and what rake you need to earn to get a decent payout:-
Bodog - At the minute the top rake earnt is $73 (WTF) and the current leader is looking at walking away with $1000 hard cash, its a $5k rake race so anything over $1 in rake will earn you atleast $50 at the minute, absolute crazy, so basically you could play 10 hands of $1/2 and walk away with over $100 of race bonus!
Ipoker - If u rake more than $160 u could look be over $300 in race bonus, Crazy!
Flamingo Poker - Another quiet rake race, i'm looking at $150 bonus for earning $12 in rake, i only played the site for 25 mins!
You can be a break even poker player and earn a profit a month just by playing these races, i'm on 3 leaderboards at the minute and looking at over $500 race bonus payout at the end of the month, shame i already have a Bodog account or i would be gunning for the $1k first prize, its free money and any player is daft to miss out!!! More on these deals and rakeback in future posts.
How do you like the new blog look? I'm currently working on it, and will be adding a few banners and stuff and trying to make it look a little better!

Playing position far more
Limping with Premium hands rather than firing, then blasting the raiser pre, enabling to get 60% of my stack in pre, thus making it a easier decision to commit on a flop.
Seems to be working quite good, or maybe just variance swept back in my direction again after a horrible week last week! Also playing Bodog to try and take 1st place in a very juicy but quiet rake race, hopefully i'll bink the top payout of $1k!

April Targets: Be in Profit from actual playing, $400 in rakeback and rakerace payouts.
After last nights rant post i'm taking a few days off from the poker cash grind and will be donking about in some SNG's on FTP, maybe even a MTT or two. Have deposited some $'s on Bodog also, now dont flame me, i know its rubbish, but i spotted on my rakeback site it has a $5k race and so far this month i have a whopping $17 rake to beat to get first place for a $1k payout ........lol free money! There is only two people on the leaderboard, so i'm expecting a decent bonus at the end of the month, suprised no one else has spotted it. Beginning to like these rake races and they certainly help to boost the old bankroll!
Feeling better about poker now, GL at the tables!

Good luck to any readers i may have! (Unless your playing PLO on Ongame!)
Thursday, 1 April 2010
I've solely concentrated on PLO cash, i think its my best way of making money at poker, it fits in to my schedule, its keeps me motivated, and i believe i can win at it at any stakes under $2/4.
I've played alot of it on Powerpoker, some on Full Tilt and recently bonus whoring on Betsafe(Ongame) and i've been a winner on all the sites i've played. I have real hot patches, some dodgy break even sessions and some super hot tilt spin ups were i have won big.
Starting roll : $1000
Profit per site
Full Tilt : $1011
Powerpoker : $2976
Betsafe : $495
Rakeback + Bonuses : $784
Total Profit : $5266 (including 8 days from Feb)
So basically i've crushed low stakes PLO and i will continue to grind the low stakes again in April, i'm removing $1266 from my roll to spend on the family, whats the point of putting in the grind and getting nothing to show for it, also means if i go busto i havent lost anything since i only started with $1k, so theres no playing with scared money.
So April begins with $5k roll and i'll continue to clear my bonus on Betsafe ($500) then jump to another skin and repeat, should be able to clear the two bonuses by end of April giving me $1k for nothing, hopefully i can at least break even. I have $250 heading my way from Powerpoker race, should of been more but i stopped playing PP for the last 5 days, i should make Betsafe race leaderboard for a similar bonus in April, if i'm somewhere near the top i may see the whole of April out on Betsafe and go for a decent race bonus, but we'll see.
I will be staying away from the big sites as i see no advantage of playing them at all, to many sharks on both Stars and Tilt even at the low levels i play. prefer to catch the weaker players who are experimenting/ playing on tilt/ or just plain bad on the smaller sites, plus the bonuses and rakeback are far greater, shame some of the software/support lets them down, but i'm BR building and i need all the extra $'s i can get! I cant see me having another month like March, it would be nice, but i doubt it, but i'm looking to have a $10k roll at least by the end of the year!
GL at the tables in April! Loved this guy when i first started playing years ago!
