Day 4 - 5 // Resuming

Cash Games: -$5,798.32
5/10NL on stars, 10/20NL on stars and 10/25NL on UB. I can attribute all the losses to the 10/25 and 5/10 game on UB.

Tournaments: -$765.75
Four tournaments on stars: $162 x 2, $109 rebuy, and $33 rebuy.

Thoughts:
I decided to keep going on the goal, I initially wanted to take a break after I had a bad run at the 10/25nl game on UB, where I lost a lot (not really that much considering its 10/25nl). I am pretty much running awful on UB, so I am gonna have to move down before I bust my bankroll on that site, which sucks because its only going to slow me down, and I will not redeposit. I was frustrated from that and needed a day off, which I took, so now I guess I will keep going from here and try to get back on track.

I probably need to learn how to take bad swings better. Whenever I catch a bad run, it makes me play bad and makes me make bad decisions, and also effects me off the table, which is TERRIBLE. Sometimes this game is great, but when you are losing its so bad. It takes a really disciplined person to become the best. I definately don't want to be grinding away at a poker table for the rest of my life, so I am playing right now while I am young to make enough money so I can be set when I am older. I am trying to keep a balance between work and play, and trying to keep them seperated, and I have a lot of things I need to deal with off the table right now, that I can't let effect my game. We'll see how this goes...



Daily Total: $6,564.07
Goal Total: $353.54
I Still Need: $199,646.46

Welcome back.

I'm glad you switched back to a lighter-colored blog template... the dark ones are kinda gloomy to look at.

I made a similar post just yesterday in my blog about the same thing you're talking about -- the game being great when you're winning, and just so awful when you're not.

It's a really difficult thing to deal with some days. Hard way to earn an easy living I guess, right?
