I ended Jan +$604.40 for the month which is very substandard but when you take into account the downswing at the start of the month and my lack of volume - it's not actually too bad an outcome...
Below is my Sharkscope graph for 2010. It's actually missing quite a few tourneys though as my monthly total includes a couple of mtt cashes, rakeback and as I've mentioned in earlier posts - quite a few hyper turbos.
I've only played this half heartedly, when I've been around and missed the grand final all together as i was at an ice hockey match where I'm a season ticket holder. My only cash of the series was ironically in the 8 game where I had to have a quick tutorial on how to play the draw game in it! I was actually feeling quite confident with my play though and managed to go quite deep and pick up a $16.50 ticket. Should've gone deeper but got unlucky when my AK ran into AQ and the Q on the flop spelled the end of my tourney!
I want to play at least 1000 mtt sngs and earn at least $1500 for the month which should be easily doable if I can find some discipline and motivation to play a bit more!
I also plan to dabble in a few of the higher buy in sngs, mostly the $27 45 and 180 seaters as it should improve my $/hr even if it lowers my roi slightly. I have the bankroll to play them - I just don't quite have the confidence yet! I like to tread very carefully when moving up stakes. I seem to have it in my head that every player will be a pro at the next level up and that I'll lose all my edge at the tables! lol
I also want to at least maintain Goldstar status on Stars and will hopefully be in a position to shoot for Platinum by the end of the month if things go to plan although this isn't a priority for me. I'd just like to have a nice month of earnings as I'm going away touring the West coast of the US in March for 15 days so any extra money I can earn this month will all help toward having some fun in March .
I'll probably mix some multi-table tourneys in again as i've gone deep in some of the one i've played recently and wouldnt mind scoring a nice result in them again!
I'll post again in a few days and let you know how well (or more likely badly) Feb is shaping up!
Until then... Thanks for reading & GL at the tables!
