Time to move up

I've been grinding $25 NL on Full Tilt for the last couple of weeks in my quest to built my bankroll back up.

After reloading Full Tilt with $50 I'm pleased to say I'm up to over $500 now and I'll throw in some $50 NL. I figure I'll throw in good tables with 10 buy ins for the stakes.

I got up to a little over $200 through tourneys and sit and goes and here are my stats from the cash games this month:

Hands: 5735
Amount Won: $247.60
BB/100 hands: 8.63
VP$IP: 18.66
PFR: 11.67

I'd still like to open up a little more and get get the vp$ip above 20 and pfr higher. I'm slowly working in more hands and good spots into the mix. I'm not as tight as I used to be but I think I can still push a few more edges.

Hopefully I'll run well in my first stint back at 50NL. Can't wait til I get back to 200NL and beyond!

Back in the right direction

So until this past week I've pretty much been going the wrong direction.

I also took a nice vacation (yay Disney World) which was a nice week away from the computer :)

My Full Tilt challenge went kaput again as I added another $50 and went busto on a fun hand.

I raise button with AK. SB calls, BB is a maniac and pushes all in for $60 (just did the same thing with 97 offsuit last hand). SB calls with TT, BB shows QQ. flop QTx. No jack to save me and I go busto.

Deposit another 50 and it is time to get back up. The following Tuesday after I returned from vacation, I deposited another $50 and there was a $33 tourney for Chiptalk that I said what the hell. Luckily, I finished 3rd for about $70 and up to almost $90 in my account.

I then had a nice 2nd place finish in the Thursday night Chiptalk Tourney :) I got all in with TT vs 55 and he rivered a 5 to cripple me :(

Last night I played in the $3 rebuy tourneys on both Full Tilt and Stars and cashed in both for $24 and $30 (I paid $9 in each). It's nice to cash but I'd love to finally get to a final table.

Played a bunch of sit and goes on FT as well and now up to 130 yay. I'll probably play sit and goes mostly for now to get the roll up as I seem to do best in them.

good luck at the tables!

  • NL = No Limit Holdem
  • PLO = Pot Limit Omaha

  • TD = Triple Draw
