So the first month of the year is behind us and I am about two weeks behind on my blogs, and I am pretty far behind where I would be happy with volume wise.  I was pretty sick the last two weeks of January and got in very little playing.  If you look at the cash graph there was barely any additional hands played since my previous blog.  In the end profit wise I am pretty happy with the way the month has gone.  I managed to put about $3300 in the green, and am pretty close to where I want to be for February and 100plo.  I did have the TCOOP the first Sunday of February but could not even muster a min cash :(.  I am pretty disappointed with that because I was going to you anything that I won in that game for a shot at 100plo.  I do think that I did pretty well at 50plo over January and am ready to start and push my bankroll at 100plo.  I won about 5.5bb/100 (9.5 EV bb/100) and also scored up about $1200 in rake back. I did want to have 30k VPPs cleared before the start of January but with the little amount of volume that I got in I was not even close.  I am going to start the month off at 50plo to get back into the grove, but then want to start and take shots over the weekend at 100plo.

I have been working more MTTs into my schedule and this has helped a lot.  I also started to add some NLO8 games in place of some of the NLHE games and those have gone pretty good.  I think that over February I am going to focus on playing the PLO and NLO8 tournaments, and maybe add a few NLHE games on the weekend.  The majority of my cashes in NLO8 have come at games <$10 BI but I think that is a bit of variance and learning.  I would say that I am decent at O8 and with a bit of work will feel more confident in the $27 and $82 MTTs.   Over all MTTs I had a net winnings of about $1790 and an ROI of 180%.  This ROI is high and not sustainable, but I am pretty sure that I should be able to probably get something >100% with how poorly the PLO MTT field has been so far.

 

Here are the graphs, you will notice that the down swing in cash was pretty well balanced by the profits in MTTS.

With games I also did not do much the last two weeks.  I finally broke and got myself some Warhammer 40k models.  I decided to get myself some of the new blood angel models.  Also I have picked up the Deathstorm two army battle box.  I think that I am going to paint this set and try to sell it on ebay afterwards.  I am not sure how much I will be able to mark it up, but I am hopefully that I should be able to make a few hundred that I can use to finance my hobby a bit further.  The worse case scenario I have some good looking models for the display case.  The painting has been slow going the last week of January, but I am ready to push on in February.  As I get some of the units painted I will be posting the pics here.  I am going to keep the paint schemes as close as possible to the box and book.  Also once I have the set completed I might end up heading to my local games-workshop and playing out the campaign (three missions).  If I managed to do this I will put together some reports and pictures.

 

February Goals;

-Play majority of my hands at 100plo

-Get in more then two blog posts a week for the rest of the month

 

Really killed it today.  Got done my house work early, eat diner and been behind my computer all night working on HM2 stuff.  TV never even made it to the on position tonight.

 

No but I really did a lot of work.  As I mentioned getting back into PLO.  Played 10k hands reviewed, plug leaks, crush…

PLO 25.02

 

Yeah poker is easy.  I also did a bunch of work today to look at some other leaks that I have over the start of my sample size.  I created some common filters to use in the future to also speed up some of my review and analysis on my play and my opponents.  Tomorrow will probably be a short grind day again (cheap movie day, grocery shopping fun things in life).  Really want to pile in the reviews and  home work stuff that I can this week since I want to play a ton in March.  I am still convinced that I can get in 100k hands in a month and really hoping to make it happen in March.
