February is going to close a level month. Got moving upwards early on, played shit, had a chat with myself sub-consciously and then carried on playing shit regardless.
Bankroll has stayed the same and have lost the £70 rake paid so effectively down but I go on BR. Finally got my funds from ClickandBuy (Titan middleman payout people) so will be starting on Betmost from 01/03/10 so will hopefully be profitable on there as I will have a start afresh frame of mind.
The only thing I've been profitable on this month is footie betting for just over £200 which isn't bad but that cash has gone on stuff for my Son's house along with another few hundred on top.
Noticed via Fenix's blog that he was offering shares so that he could play the majors last Sunday. Had never took a stake in anyone before but his Sharkscope stats looked spot on so I went for the minimum 1% and not only made a profit but enjoyed a night off (apart from 3 sng) but also watched for a couple of hours and I reckon I may have learnt a thing or 2 into the bargain.
One thing I did notice and I may have got completely the wrong end of the stick, is that even though these were higher than I've ever played people were still going all in Q-9 vs K-10 pre flop for example. This was not Fenix but others at the tables and there was nothing obvious like short stacks being forced to double up so could only put it down to there being fish at all levels. Having not watched bigger staked tournies before I suppose I didn't think it would happen or I've led a sheltered life at lower stakes and thought that the bigger the buy-in the play would be massively higher standard.
I'd certainly take a stake again though (winning first time out does that for you).
Good luck all and here's to a profitable March.
A man named Ralph appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.
"Have you ever done anything of particular merit?" St.Peter asked.
"Well, I can think of one thing," the man offered. "Once, on a trip to the Brecon Beacons in South Wales, I came upon a gang of bikers, who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen. So, I approached the largest and most heavily-tattooed biker and smacked him in his face, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring and threw it on the ground, yelling "Now, back off or I'll kick the shit out of all of you!"
St. Peter was impressed, "When did this happen?"
"Just a couple minutes ago!!".
