Well, it was weird.We had a talk about how I wasn't into school and everything the day before, and I was pretty sure I told her I was still playing poker, and she didn't seem to care, then the next day, she tells me she's cancelling the internet, because she doesn't believe that I'm not playing, so I'm like wtf, first of all, I'm in University, I NEED the internet, secondly, I told her I was playin the other day. So she starts flipping out, and naturally we argue, and I get the boot.I'm not overly upset about it. I don't really have the available cash to get my own place though, and that is the only problem. So I have no idea wtf I'm going to do. I can find a place to sleep at night, without a problem, but it'll be pretty annoying in the long run.Oh well, playin it by ear.- Zach

OctoberOnline: $2,283.50 in 30k hands mostly at $50NL.Live play I made about $1000 or so. Every time I amassed a large chip stack live, I lost most, if not all of it on a bad beat, so my live winnings could have been in the $5k range if poker wasn't... uhh, poker.November: I start a new job so I'll go conservative with 25k hands and $2,000 since I'm mostly playing $100NL now.

How about grandparents?You clearly know someone who can spare a couch for a few nights.Why cant you sleep at a friends just because they live at their parents? I know a lot of my friends parents well enough that they wouldnt mind at all. They'd probably insist... though i honestly cant ever see myself in this position. My parents are trying to convince me to NOT move out.

OK, now that November's going well, I'm finally not too embarrassed to post my October $ graph. The massive downswing was from tilting at 50/100 half drunk followed by taking $1500 to 25/50 NL.Posted ImageNovember's going awesome so far though:Posted ImageHere it is in BB form, in case you thought I was still playing 50/100 or something:Posted Image

No worries. I'm doing fine. That was the only real tilt session I've had in months, and I've got over 300 BB at the level I'm playing now (30/60). With the winrate I've been averaging lately, that 10K will be a distant memory in no time.

It's also 6,460 hands at 30/60 if I keep winning at 2.58 BB/100 like I have been over the last 11,273 hands. (All the hands in my database.) That's a good week's work if I put the effort in. Two weeks if I don't run as hot. Maybe a month if I run bad.Dismissing it keeps me in a good mood, so I can continue playing good poker, instead of stressing out about the money and possibly going into a tilt spiral leading to BUSTO which would dramatically, dramatically decrease my earning power over the next year or so.

Wow, pretty tough not to get at least a little results-oriented with that one. Nice fold though.

I don't think the poker gods liked this comment very much. I swear to god I didn't tilt at all, and actually felt like I played pretty well, but I still got hit with a 100BB downswing tonight. Just kept getting rivered when bottom pair would make trips against me or I'd make a clever turn raise with top pair and get called by a low pocket pair that hit trips on the river. Pretty brutal. I might just stick to 15/30 for a while since my winrate's better there anyway, and it's a lot lower stress.

Isn't it time to re-adjust the general 300BB/15-20 buy ins bankroll management rules?I play low limits and i had more than one +-10 buy ins days.You play higher limits and lose 100 BBs playing good.I think 300 BBs for limit,15 buy ins for NL thing is history.One needs a much bigger bankroll to play safe.Or am i the the captain obvious?

November:Play a lot more 2/4 and 3/6NL, and stay away from 5/10NL. My winrate at these levels are very high, and it's very low at 5/10. (44 BB/h 2tabling is sustainable right?)Play a lot of tournies. I know my goal last month was to not play many, but I have read most of HOH since then, and feel my tournament game has improved vastly over the month.

pokerprophecy.com tells me that I have an almost 50% ITM in about 45 $12 Turbo SnGs on FullTilt, so I think I'm going to try to get in another 30-50 of those in the month of November. I figure I should be able to put together a minimum ROI of 25-33%. I may also try to get in 10-20 Turbo $16's on Stars depending on how those go and maybe 8-10 MTTs depending on time. That's pretty much it for online. I'm going to try to avoid online cash games for the month since I've been bleeding money in them of late. I do plan to read the O8 section of SS2 along with re-reading Stud8 and reading the Omaha section. Then, maybe I'll play a little bit of those games at low limits and start to branch out a bit. In live play I'm going to try to get in at least 20 hours and hopefully 3 sessions of 10/20 at the casino.
