Sorry I took so long to update. I've slacked a ton in the past 2 weeks so there hasn't been much to write about, and when there was it was probably me whining so I preferred not to do so.
September has come to an end and I failed miserably at every objective I had for this month. They were:
50k hands of 400NL -> No. Barely played 50k hands of poker at all.
Total profit of $16k -> I wish, but not even $6k.
Cut down the number of tables to 12-16 to focus on improving. -> No, auto pilot all the way.
Be mentally prepared to make $400 my regular game in October and take shots at 600 and 1000NL. -> Doubt it.
Blog once every 3 days, the minimum. -> Failed.
Decide once and for all what I'm going to do about college. -> Yeah I decided not to take the year off.
About the graph, I bought the $4k milestone bonus around hand 30k and the huge dip was my first session following the purchase. Last 10k hands of poker have been absolutely infernal, it's cooler after cooler and beat after beat so it's been really tough (-$1k in 10k hands at 100NL which is a limit I was crushing for 25k hands or so this month)
Overall I'm very ashamed with these results. Some people say "ARE YOU STUPID?!??! YOU WON MONEY THAT'S VERY GOOD" and those people are weak. I am NOT happy with these results. These results are garbage. Failing at every poker goal for the month is something I can't take (given the importance I attribute to this game and the impact it has on my lifestyle) so something will have to be done because I don't settle for mediocrity.
- $16k total profit.
- Clear the $4k bonus. Keep collecting FPPs for another $4k bonus (or buy a $1.5k bonus if I can clear that one before the month is over)
- Reach the 300k VPPs milestone and buy the $3k bonus.
- Lose 5 kg (11 lbs)
- Study 20 hours per week, college related and drivers license related.
I hope October isn't as huge of a failure as September was. I'll also be 20 in the 26th of October so I hope that I have accomplished all of them by then so it can be my birthday present to myself.
