November 2010 Review

Month 11 complete and as usual its seems to be over in a flash. When I was a kid someone once told me that the older you get the faster time seems to elapse.... tru dat...

I will be having today off from the felt to relax and to pack as I am of to Paris tomorrow for a 2 Day Break. It will be my first visit and hopefully not covered in snow as is in the UK

At mid month I was up just under $500 in table winnings. That was soon boosted and i went on a mini heater for the next week and peaked at just below $2k winnings. The doomswitch was then activated, followed by the spew button and I went on to lose about half my winnings over the course of the month.

A few months back I talked about certain books I was reading to improve my game. I am still ploughing through these and that will be a large part of December's target to complete them.

I was one of the first to complete the volume pool on 2+2. I could have entered a higher pool as my results below will show but as it was my first time I was being somewhat cautious particularly because of an Internet downtime incident in the month. The final results are yet to be determined but there is already 1 confirmed fail in my group, so I will get at least $25.

My HEM graph shows that I have won this month at above AIEV but on the tables I feel around even. I suppose you remember the bad beats more than the suck outs. This months spew estimate is around $500.

I managed to get 653rd out of 18394 runners in the Turbo Takedown Tourney for a $200 cash. I like this tournament and play every month. Hopefully I can get the repeat cash bonus next month. I was also sat with a team pro for the first time ever in a Tourney. I will try and get the Bounty next month if it happens again.

The final numbers for November are as follows:

140,000 Hands Played
22,000 VPPs

+$844 (Cash Game Winnings)
+$145 (Tourney Winnings)
+$53 (Volume Pool Winnings)
+$3,400 (200k VPP Milestone Bonus)
+$4,442 (Total Month)

The YTD numbers as at the end of November are as follows:

200,018 VPPs

+$5,745 - Jan*
+$3,385 - Feb*
+$467 - Mar*
+$1,620 - Apr*
+$1,234 - May*
-$1,555 - June
-$360 - July
+$1,208 - Aug
+$1,198 - Sept
+$1,974 - Oct
+$4,442 - Nov
+$19,358 (Total YTD)

* indicates winnings attained as a part-time player

December will be pretty relaxed before I commence my SNE challenge for 2011. I will be moving back to NL100 and maybe throw in a few NL200 tables too. I will also as usual work on developing my game further

Away from the tables I was lucky enough to go on a memorable trip. I have been a big Liverpool FC fan for over 25yrs but never had the chance to visit the club's home ground. 5 of us went down there this month and saw an excellent match vs West Ham United with Liverpool Destroying them 3-0. Here is a brief clip that I took of the Anfield Anthem, You'll Never Walk Alone:

GL All.........
