      I'm currently trying to jump from NL10 to NL25 zoom SH. Currently playing on Stars as Z.Casanovaa but my account isn't tracked there so might switch to ipoker later in the month and if so will probably be under username OcularPatdown on Titan unless I create a new account for the bonus.

      As well as cash games I might try to meet the MTT target also. :f_eek:

      Worst session in ages to start the month, everything that could go wrong did and was playing badly too to top it off.

      At least it can only get better.

      isn't that fun? :P it's almost like you set out to do something and then you can almost hear the poker gods whispering "oh really? let's see if he can take THIS" :f_biggrin:

      oh well. being confident in your edge is important, messing around with this might help.
      if all fails and the accumulated emotion is too much then take a long break, gl :f_biggrin:

      Thanks for the link!

      Yeah, I am pretty confident in my edge at nl10, wasn't that tilted in the session, but made a few repeated mistakes w the QQ and also a bad shove w AK (but no options were good imo)

      Some hands from yesterday:

      AKo
      QQ
      QQ (2)

      Day #2 (technically its nov 3 here, but I started the challenge on US/UK nov 1st)

      Went very well, one of my best days ever in terms of BI (most is 11) which was nice after yesterdays runbad.



      Day not over yet so I might go for the PB!

      EDIT: Ended day at 3182 hands and +$74.82 :f_frown:

      Shot went ok felt like I ran a little bad, funny how nl25 swings today so much smaller than either day at nl10



      AQs

      When something makes no sense I call, as above. Risky though, when many people's entire game is nonsensical, not just bluffs :f_biggrin:
