A little bump on the last day of the year...

Starting BR: $48.61
Ending BR: $51.61

Well it was a nice little bump I got last night and this morning. Had I not played that $2.20 satty to try to get into the sunday hundred grand I would be up 5 on the session. But as it stands I'm jump past the $50 mark. Lets hope I can keep the momentum in the new year and get that $60 early in january so that it is possible to see $70 before February. If I can hit $70 by February, then its possible that by the time March ends I will be up in the new level. Its a slow climb and I'm enjoying it very much.

New bankroll high...

Starting BR: $48.13
Ending BR: $48.61

Well hopefully I can do this more often. Announce a new high for my bankroll. After a rough week about a week and a half ago, I've broken back up over my previous high. I once again have the $50 mark in sight, I hope I didn't just jinx it.

Good last session possibly for the year

Starting BR: $46.06
Ending BR: $48.13

Well what is possibly the last session for me for the year went pretty well. I had one table that didn't do too well for me, but the other table went very well. I'm almost back up to my all-time high for this venture. Only $.27 away now. I'm happy that the bad streak is over. It seems like I've gotten one of those about every 10-15 sessions. I'll have one, two, or maybe three sessions that I'll just get totally donked on. But I'm back. Lets hope the new year is good to me. I might play some tonite yet, but we'll see.

One session over the holiday plus my lunch hour...

Starting BR: $43.54
Ending BR: $46.06

I got a little session in over the holiday and did ok. Won $1.87. Then today I won $.66. Not bad for not having any cards today until I took down the last two hands. Ended on the up side. That's all one can do. I'm not back up to my high for the month, but I'm getting close. I might get a small session in tonight, but most likely just going to have tomorrow left to finish out the month.

Inconsistant cards, but made the good ones count...

Starting BR: $43.06
Ending BR: $43.54

My cards weren't that great, but the ones i did have I made count. Plus I bet a guy off a draw which helped. Paying attention is the only way to win in the long run. My consistency will persevere over the hit and run fishy fish.

Up and down, but down...

Starting BR: $43.51
Ending BR: $43.06

Had a rollercoaster session. Had my JJ beat by KK. Nothing new there. He deserved to win that hand. But that knocked me down a bit. I recovered for the most part. Just couldn't climb all the way back. There is always tomorrow.

Continuing my climb back upward...

Starting BR: $42.07
Ending BR: $43.51

Had a pretty good day. I played smart and didn't get played at by a bunch of fish. I had a very good table image on my second table I was playing which is where I won most of my money today. I was semi-tight but aggressive. And when I showed down, I showed down the winner. Makes me very believable when I need to be :)

Ended my bad streak...

Starting BR: $43.73
Ending BR: $42.07

You might look at that and say, "The bad streak is ended? You are still down...". And you would pretty much be right, except for the fact that I didn't get a chance to blog Friday's session. I lost $3 on Friday thanks to a fishy fish going all-in on the flush draw and hitting, 3 times in 3 days. But then today I had a good session and got back over a dollar of that. So far I haven't had a good month, well last week was terrible, but I think I'm over it and on the way back up.

Pretty good session

Starting BR: $42.16
Ending BR: $43.73

I played on two tables today and won on both. I played well but had a few nice starting hands that got picked off. Would have been up much more had my KK held up. But I laid it down to a nice bet with an A and supporting cards on the turn. Nothing you can do. A good lay down is as good as a win sometimes.

And a fishing they will go.

Starting BR: $46.03
Ending BR: $42.16

Its been a tough two days. Got fished out by 44 when I had AK. There was a raise, and I reraised all-in for over $3. The raiser and the guy with 44(who had more than I did) called. Of course the other guy had AK also and nothing fell. The guy with 44 picked up a nice pot. Blah. I'll get it back. That is not the worry. I'm just getting a bit frustrated after 2 days of this junk.

Got fished

Starting BR: $48.21
Ending BR: $46.03

Well I took a nice little hit today. Today was the second day in a row that I made an all-in move to play back at a semi bluffer when some fish stuck in the middle called with his mediocre flush draw and hit it on the river. They can keep playing like that. The numbers are in my favor, in the long run. And I'm playing for the long run, so be it.

Big up and Big down and a little up...

Starting BR: $47.97
Ending BR: $48.21

So I played very well this session and while I should have been up a lot I only made $.24 on the day. I was up over $2 when I got AK. I raised and was called. Flop was K high. I bet and got raised by a BSing fish. I reraised him and he called. The turn was a blank and I went all-in. He called. Low and behold the river was a club and he hit his flush. So that made me reload. Then I got KK and he had AQ and I got back $3. That put me at even and then I ground out the rest in the last few minutes I had to play.

I was up on the session so that is a positive.

I need to start fishing with a harpoon...

Starting BR: $ 48.40
Ending BR: $47.97

I started out very well, took out two fishy players and I was up a little over a dollar. Then those spots got filled with two more fishes and that was not so good. The first fishes were missing, the next two weren't. They always had me out kicked or would bluff and backdoor me on the river. Stupid.

Starting BR: $47.79
Ending BR: $48.40

Made a nice play on a guy and won a nice little pot, poked around for a while and picked up AA and QQ within 5 hands of each other. Ended the session up $.61 on the day.

A combination from last night and today...

Starting BR: $44.38
Ending BR: $47.79

Well last night I got a chance to play for a little while I folded the laundry and put it away. That put me up $2.23. Then today at lunch I made another $1.18. So total from last night and today I'm up $3.41. I'm happy to be very much up over that $45 mark now. Hopefully by this time next week I can be up over the $50 level. I'm making my slow climb to $90.

tough day...

Starting BR: $45.83
Ending BR: $44.38

Had a tough session. AK vs A8 vs A5. The A 5 raised preflop, I reraise all-in, almost $3. I got called of course by both, and the A 5 won. How poetic.

New Month, Last Month of the Year...

Starting BR: $45.34
Ending BR: $45.83

Well folks, here it is. Here is the round up from last month and my year to date story.

I started this month with a bankroll of $27.05. I got a slow start and lost a little the first week, but buckled down and got refocused and ended I ended November with a bankroll of $45.34. This amounted to a 67% increase in my bankroll from the previous month. I started the year, short year since I just started in October, with $15. After November I have had a 202% increase in my bankroll.

This month probably won't be as good since I won't be playing as much due to the holidays. I will have the first three weeks in full but the last full week of the month will only have 2 days. And I won't get any time on the partial week that ends December. It looks like I'll get 17 out of 21 playable days this month. I may try to sneak in a session or two on the holiday break, but that will have to be played by ear.

As for today's session...

It was a slow session. No real big hands. I just sat around picking up loose changed. Ended the session up $.49.
