January ResultsTable Profit:
For January, I'm going to have my first 5-figure month. To ensure that this happens, I will be attempting to play a minimum of 500 hands/day, with the overall goal being between 15,000 and 20,000 hands. More if possible, but it's quite difficult to get 1k hands/day using good table selection at 5/10 HU LHE.Basically, for January, and all of 2008, I pledge to no longer be lazy, lol. Grind out the hands, and the money will come.
10,989*Other includes referral rakeback, fees incurred during withdrawals, and the gain/loss of money based on the current exchange rate, since I hold some of my BR in $CAD, as well as some money lost when I took 10% of a friend's action in a soft 100/200 game.This is by far my best month ever, topping November's ~$9k win. I achieved half of my goal, which was to have my first 5-figure month, but I came up quite a bit short of my hands goal.To be fair, I found it a lot more difficult to get in hands while I was running well, simply because I'd bust my opponents in significantly fewer hands, and therefore I wouldn't have to play as long to win the same amount, lol. I certainly could have put in more hours tho, and I'll look to do that in February.Nearly 100% of my hands came from 5/10 HU LHE, with the exception of 4 hands (3 at 3/6 and 1 at 15/30). In both cases, I sat at the wrong limit by accident, and didn't notice until I played my first hand, lol.As shown in the PT stats image, I clearly ran super hot the entire month. It's tough to say with a lot of certainty, as I've only got 25k hands of HU LHE under my belt, but I think my long term winrate is probably closer to 5 BB/100, maybe 4 BB/100 a bit more conservatively, assuming I continue to practice very good game selection.Graphs:Stats:February Goals
15,000 hands, $10,000 profit.I'm going to stick with 5/10 for a while, as I'm very comfortable there, and I can handle the quick, huge swings of HU LHE there there best, in terms of the amount of money. Also, this is the first time I've been overrolled for anything, and I'm really enjoying the extra comfort.I'm not rolled for 10/20 yet, anyways, but when the time comes, I don't really want to jump into it without being ready for double the amount of money going either way, so basically, the plan for February is to build up my roll (which means spend WAY less than I did in January) to the point that I'll be ready for 10/20 come March.Once again, best of luck to everyone in February!
