My monthly targets are:
- Play 600 hands of cash on NLHE $0.50 Full Ring or 6-max, 600 cash hands on PLO $0.50 6-max, all with target of breaking even
- Play 20 NLHE STT hoping for +10% ROI
Overall results for the month:-
Pokerstars : -$ 70.87
Black Belt Poker: -$ 243.37 (-£151.43)
Live play : -£ 41.00
For Pokerstars, my 8 game cash was a little disappointing this month with loss of $155.53 over three sessions. On a slightly brighter note, I tried Zoom Omaha cash a couple of times and made profit of $27.08
The Micro Millions tempted me, but didn't have any joy in four attempts. Three 8 game MTT saw me cash in one, but still lost $5.88 The 8 game STT saw two cashes out of three attempts, with profit of $14.35
8 Game wins/losses by game type for October:
Limit HE -61.95
Omaha HL -12.54
Razz - 9.95
Stud HL -30.18
NL HE +53.81
BBP results break down as follows:
Cash results (-£91.96 overall)
NLHE Speed ($0.20) 664 hands -£37.55
NLHE 6-Max ($0.20) 619 hands +£22.64
PLO ($0.50) 475 hands -£81.57
PLO8 ($0.20) 89 hands +£ 4.52
Tournament Results (-£59.47 overall)
11x MTT -£40.21
12x 6 seat STT -£19.26
Pokerstars 8 game is still my favourite, so will be continuing playing as much as possible. The PLO Speed might be something I would continue with as well, but it might be a struggle to fit it into my schedule !
I'm still adjusting to the Black Belt cash games, but have switched to the lower levels 6-Max and Speed poker. Both these formats I am comfortable with now, so hope to now get more consistent (positive) results. The PLO loss was all down to one short one session, where three or four hands ruined the session for me.
The BBP MTT tournament results were down to trying to qualify for iPOPS III, but came nowhere close sadly. The STT's were mostly Jackpot SnG as not much else seems to run nowadays. Might start giving those a miss, although normally do OK in them.
For Pokerstars, concentrate on 8 Game cash and maybe dabble a bit more in Zoom PLO cash
With BBP, will continue to play $0.20 Speed and 6-max NLHE and continue with the $0.50 PLO and $0.20 PLO8 cash games. I will probably play more MTT and less STT but do need to be sure I have enough time to play the MTTs
* Keep to my revised Poker Plan
Surpassed Cash games hand targets for NLHE but didn't hit the PLO target.
* Play BBP London Live and UKIPT Brighton tournaments
Played two BBP Live events this year
* Aim for break even month on month on all cash tables
NLHE near enough but for 6-max result, PLO OK apart from the odd poor month, PLO8 looking a bit better
* Use learning tools and resources to learn and improve my NLHE, Omaha and PLO8 cash and tournament play
Am putting in the effort to do some learning.
* Avoid entering any BBP grading process !
Managed it this month :)
* Win a BBP league :-)
Won the 2nd leg of the new league, so a step in the right direction. Two more chances this week !
