Week Ending Jun 26th 2006

WillWonka 06/20/2005 - 06/26/2005

Let's start with the stats for the week:

Ring Play (5/10):

857 Hands VPIP 18.90 W2SD 30.48 W$SD 56.14 PFR 6.53 AF 2.07
$ +493.50 (7.77 BB/hr when adjusting for multi-tabling)

SNG Play: Played 0 ($50) 1st 0 2nd 0 3rd 0 ITM 0 ROI 0 $0

MTT Play: Played 1 (Free) 135th out of 1432 $0

Net for the Week: +493.50

I played even less this week than last week and it pretty much for a lame reason. I probably played 5 out of the 7 days; but if I made $100 for the session, I quit. There are a couple of reasons for this. One, My longest daily winning streak is 11. I am currently at 9 and I would like to break that streak. Two, too many times I have been up early only to give it back later. Three, confidence. Ok, the last is kind of lame; but confidence can really help. What I am trying to avoid is the melt down days. I have had 94 of 131 days of positive session play. The problem is that those days have set me back 4 or 5 days. So for that reason, I have stopped and not allowed myself to have those meltdown days. I have really worked at this. My "tilt" factor is way down. Keeping a level head and reviewing hand histories has done the trick for me. If I review and see I put my chips into the pot at the right time, I am OK with the beats. Don't get me wrong, I'm not happy about it; but I can deal with it.

Thursday is a big day for me. I will making my last attempt of making the main event. The good news is that odds or the overlay on the tournament. There will only be at monst 32 people in it... but more likely, there will only be around 25 as you need to qualify to make the main event tourney. I plan on playing a few tournies on that site to prepare. It is a small site so mostly the same players are playing and hopefully it will help me prepare for Thursday.

In July, along with some other bloggers, I only plan on playing SNGS. My goal is to play 200 of them. We'll see how it goes.

I think one of the key things that has helped me this week is not playing Ax suited in early position. I know what you are saying... Daaaa!!!! But for whatever reason, I played them pretty often and as you could guess, it got me into trouble more than it helped me. As we all know, the chances of hitting a flush are around 5%, so it is not worth it. Having an ace with a low kicker and an ace hits the flop can only get you into trouble. We'll just chalk this one up to being a slow learner on this one. Poker Tracker has really helped me cure this leak.

Hi Will,
Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the link up. I will add you to mine as well.
We haven't exactly set up the rules yet, but the SNG challenge will be some kind of wager and we will take results for a period of time(also to be determined) and find out who the winner is. If you haven't checked out Jordan at HighOnPoker, click the link on my blog. I believe he will be the one to set it up.
