Shouldn't you set yourself a goal that's a little more realistic? How about just making your goal to win the Sunday million or something.

I have a question about running bad. (since cwik seems to be)I'm semi new to playing fulltime, so maybe i'm off.right now, my current week i was down 3bi's back to even then down 3bi's. I've only had 2 other weeks where i didnt have a profit.This week isnt over, but ,y 1st down session i didnt see any PP over JJ, and never hit anything on any flops. Today, never saw any PP over 9,9 and missed completely on almost everything, managed to get chips in the middle with a boat which was rivered by a higher boat.It was a horrible run of cards, and beats. Is it common for this to happen for an entire month? I find it hard to believe that I will lose more often than win in a full month of play.

It's certainly more feasible for you, Royal, as you're playing live, thus playing fewer hands. On the other side of the coin though, the games are probably softer live, so you'll probably hav shorter/smaller downswings comparatively, in terms of number of hands, and buyins.

I lost $1250 in October.Almost the entirety of that was lost at 1/2 6 max (running bluffs that got called, -$400, 9k hands) or 1/2 HU (playing bad players who held over me and some slight tilt -$1100, 3400 hands). I also ran about -$900 below expectation in AI situations. Basically, if I had rakeback and variance didn't **** me, I'd have made a little money on the month. I played about 17K hands.For November:I want to make $2000I want to play 20K handsMake my showdown winnings land within about 10% of my Sklanksy dollar winningsPlay a few more PLO and PLO8 sngs/tournies as the players are horrible at themFinish watching the torrent of about 60 Cardrunner Videos that I DL'd.I wrote a lot about my overall feelings of how I played in the blog, so I'm not gonna repeat them here. I probably made too many mistakes this month to have a winning month, but it should've been breakeven if Variance didn't screw with me, so I like my prospects for next month.

After a blackjack incident, I went busto last month for the first time in 2 years.I redeposited $50 and hope to run that up to at least $150 this month. Playing SSNLHE, this should easily be achievable.edit: No more blackjack ever.

Why is anyone who puts in ~20k hands/month at $1/2 level playing without rakeback? You're literally giving money away. At that level, rb is significant. (approx $1k) Do whatever you have to do to get it.

Got the first session in this month and it was an unexpected 1-5 spread limit Stud 8/better cash game. I ended +93.

BAHAHHAHHA. I was there when Zach announced his big decision. We should've celebrated with something more appropriate than a game of Do's.gl on the robusto road KKOT.With my recent surgery and seeing how Nov. is one of those times when you lose a week due to thanksgiving, I was hoping to make just 8k. Although after today, i think a 12k month is certainly feasible.and it's days like this that make me happy I decided to finally learn NL : )Posted Image

thanks,also, I'm having a disgusting november so far also. i dont even know how to explain it, I've never gone so long with out seeing a big PP, or without actually winning a decent pot.I'm stuck another 2bi's today. The level of play is so god awful too. its like EP raise, LP re-raise like 20x the big blind. EP call.flop A,Q x. EP check, LP all in, EP call with A,rag , turn and river brick and LP shows, a Q and mucks.. etc etc.. and here i am with J,2 J,4 and 8,3 over and over and over, that when i actually see K,Js I'll play it even when its raised.I hate poker right now
