Rescued Then Down

I had a down swing this month only to pull it all back, then yesterday was basically a mirror of the month being down $600 at one stage only to win back $500. I then thought okay, one more session, win back that $100. It didn't go according to plan and I lost like another $350 :)

4 Time Supernova VIP

Its taken far too long but I've secured Supernova VIP for another year. Getting close to lifetime SNE too, lol :)

I also got to play my first hand with one of the big names. I've played with plenty of the online 'Red Spades' before but this was the biggest one.

But did I jam on Liv?

Ouch - Just Call

No need to raise AI here. Probably a fold but a call should suffice from villain's POV.

I'm Back And Ready To Fight

I've been away for a few days on some family business and now I'm back. 

My VPPs are therefore the same as in my last post when I talked about chasing down 400k VPPs.

While I chase these annual targets I am also looking to change up my bankroll management, something I touched on briefly before

I intend to use a shorter 30 BI move up strategy as opposed to strategies which I have used in the past which have ranged from 50-100 BIs variable. Also in the past I have coasted at comfortable levels and just cashed out when ever I have had excess without trying to move up. I am now aiming to hardly ever cash out and keep building and moving up.

I have been on a slight downer this month so am still at NL25/NL50. I can move up to NL100 when I hit $3k. My level/bankroll chart looks like this:

My Roll is:

VPP Pace Challenge

I Started the year with the plan of bagging 400k Vpps.

At the moment I am close to 100k with almost 5 months gone. This is way behind pace.

The Pace thread on 2+2 shows me at:

---400K Pace--- 149,270 

---300K Pace--- 111,952 

95,722 x_ROSH125_x

---200K Pace--- 74,635 

So I got to chase down 300k + 400k. The average at the start of the year for 300k is 822 VPPs per day and for 400k it's 1096 Vpps per day.

To catch both of these I need around 1,350 VPPs a day from now on till the end of the year.

Got Some work to do..!!

Queens Vs Unkown

An interesting hand here vs an unknown. I didn't notice his stack size pre and if I had I would have more likely 3bet for value. Flatting is fine too. On the flop 3-way I think flatting is fine with the 3rd player left to act on a bad flop. The turn is interesting as I was torn between betting or checking. I decided to pot control as this guy was an unknown. When he checks the river it is a pretty easy value bet. I didn't expect the crai jam.

How Many Calories Do You Burn Idling or Doing Nothing In 24hrs?

So the missus and I have challenged ourselves to losing some weight. I want to lose 10-14lbs and tone up a bit. I'm currently 192lbs and 5'10". 

I never realised that we all actually burn a lot a of calories while doing absolutely nothing. This short clip shows how to calculate how much you burn according to your height, weight, age and sex:

Another lazier way to get a (very rough) estimate is to multiply your body weight in lbs by 11:
Here is the source

If you want an online calculator try this one.

I will try and update in a few weeks as to my weight loss progress.

Welcome to 6-Max, Where Dreams Go To Die

It wasn't long ago that I was talking about switching to a more aggressive bankroll management. Since then I have been playing more 6 Max but am getting destroyed and my shot taking aspirations will have to wait. My roll is down to $3k now and not really good enough to be playing 100/200/higher. I will continue until I get to $4.5k before adding back NL100 games.

And probably the biggest pot in the last 2 days

There are a quite a few more where I should have found a fold along with a few coolers. Looks like its going to be a bumpy ride.

F*** It, It's $4k.... Lets Go

It wasn't long ago that I was sitting on over $10k in my Stars account. I was building it up slowly but surely. Unfortunately due to a few real life issues I cashed out a lot of it. The picture is now:

I now have just under $4k and have basically written this money off in the sense that if I lose it all its ok. I have always exercised solid bankroll management and have never gone the aggressive route. That is going to change and I am going to be taking lots of shots as I move my roll up. Watch this space....

Online Poker Is NOT A Rigged Scam

I would probably have to quit according to this clown:

While the admin hole card scam did happen that was just at that particular dodgy site. The rest of his points are just based on his database which in reality is probably nowhere near the amount of live hands he claims to have. Enjoy for the lolz.
