5/10NL 6max on ultimatebet.com... what can I say? Is this site rigged? I took some of the worst beats of my life today in this game and I am wondering if I will ever beat it. I mean, the setups I got into today are just unreal. I know variance is a big part of the game and I understand that it happens, but it seems to happen too much in this game. Something about it just makes me mad. Its so fast, and it would be such easy money if I knew what some of these players were thinking and if my hands held up.
I played the $320 MTT on stars today and played very well in my own opinion and just got unlucky a few times, getting in with QQ and losing to A5 all in preflop, then having to shove 6BBs UTG with 33 and ran into 55.
I only played about 1.5 hours today. I won about 2k at the 10/20NL stars game this morning around 2AM, then lost 7k at 5/10NL on UB this evening. Right now I am kind of debating calling it quits on UB. I really want to beat the 5/10 game regularly, but I don't know if its gonna happen. I have been thinking a lot today about taking a break for a while and coming back with a fresh start and well prepared to beat that game. Not only that, but I think a break would give me the opportunity to study more, watch more, take more notes, read more books, reread things, so I will know what to do during any given situation.
For the blogs sake, I really feel negative about this new goal. 200k in 100 days seems impossible right now by my results and mental state. I would need to have a sick run at 10/20 or have a big tournament score, which isn't really that fair, although it would be nice. So right now, I am gonna sleep on it, and try to think of something reasonable tomorrow.
