      Down 300ish so far. Lost AK vs AA and AK vs KK AIPF 150bb deep @ 100. Dropping 100 til I get back to even :)

      Won't play tomorrow but will hit the tabs on saturday for the weekend fish :)

      Struggling alot so far. About -500 now. Pretty grose. Probably didn't play my best but I think certainly +EV.

      Just horrible run of cards so far though. Don't think i've won AIPF for 100bb+ stacks yet. Keep running QQ/AK into KK AA. Pretty much the story so far.

      Completely dropped 100. Just gonna take on 50 until im back to even. I'll keep you all informed.

      Also starting a group study with 2 friends (one plays 100/200 and other plays 400-1k). We will study every week for a couple of hours. Hopefully this will help improve my game + focus me. I'll hit the tabs tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

      Sorry its been a few days. Still about the same, everytime i hit b/e i lose a BI or two. Anyway, after RB we should be up so we are still OK. Just hopefully catch some cards and make a bit of money before the end of the stake.

      Hey, today was the end of the stake (1month since I received the stake money), sorry for lack of updates recently, had a very busy few days at work before Xmas and then obviously Xmas. I don't have the exact results because I can't get to my PC until Sunday.

      Excluding rakeback I think we ended somewhere ~-$500. I'll get a graph up on Sunday once I get to PC. I haven't taken a look at how much rakeback we gained but my guess is after rakeback we are somewhere near breakeven.

      On Sunday I will post a graph, post rakeback figures, post $$ calcs and start shipping the money back right away.

      Couldn't get anything going this stake, just kept bouncing back off the b/e line. So many apologies. Like I say, will provide full update with graph & figures on Sunday.

      Many thanks

      Yes sorry, Xmas period has been very busy, just compiling a report for you now. Have already withdrawn funds from microgaming/ipoker to Skrill, they are just processing now usually take 24-48hours.

      Stake Finished - Dec 27th.

      First of all sorry, I promised this report for yesterday but didn't manage to get to my PC.

      Overall I think this is the most disappointing stake I have had on pokerstrategy. I have had a breakeven stake before but never a losing one. On the majority of my stakes I have made a profit, so please don't believe it was a -EV stake on your behalf. I don't think that.

      However I have to be self-critical at every level within poker in order to improve myself. In all honesty, I don't think I brought my A-game. I had a week off during the start of the stake and was really motivated and focused (even though I was having an extremely hard time during the start of the stake). HU is by nature extremely swingy and I certainly experienced the swings.

      After my week off, I was still pretty focused on the stake, but eventually with December being such a busy month overall (Yes, I was naive to believe otherwise) I started to lack volume and momentum.

      There were also times where I couldn't get to/was too busy to use my PC for days.
      With that in mind, I think I performed pretty poor as a stakee. My updates were not up to my previous standards and just overall had no consistency or depth.


      - So that's my thoughts on the stake. I think pretty accurate. Bearing in mind the number of stakes I have been involved in, I do know whats required and I don't believe I delivered. However, I did always try my best (even if it wasn't my A-game that came out I always tried to perform to the best I could), I think I stayed pretty disciplined despite having swings of like 12bi? In both directions..




      Overall I ended the stake -$641.65. A considerable loss but not a massive loss given that we played 100nl.

      After rakeback and what (little)bonuses stars decided to give me the final roll total is: $2204.09 meaning a total loss of -$295.91

      This is my 3rd losing month in the last 18 and I think my only losing stake on pokerstrategy, I can only apologies that I returned a negative ROI for this stake.

      - Returning funds:

      For now I will assume everyone would like to receive their funds back the way they came. If anything is different let me know ASAP (via community tool preferably)

      I have requested withdrawals from every site I played on with the exception of pokerstars. As the withdrawals come through to Skrill (usually 24-48hours) I will pool it all on stars and send money to people straight away.

      I do have some limits on pokerstars, not sure whether i'll exceed them or not. If I do i'll let you know. (Actually i'll try to increase them tonight so we can avoid any problems).

      My calculations of the returns:

      iownw69 - 10% $250 = $220.41 - Sent
      MilanBurdych - 25% $625 = $551.02 - Sent
      tommygecko - 10% $250 = $220.41 - Sent
      biogas - 15% $375 = $330.61 - Sent
      Turuntor - 20% $500 = $440.82 - Sent
      Sinnology - 20% $500 = $440.82 - Sent

      Will let you know as soon as funds come through and will begin sending right away. Will update here when sent.

      I appreciate that you'll be disappointed with the results, I can only apologies once more.

      Sent to iownw69, MilanBurdych & tommygecko

      Can only send $1000 in a 24hour period and $2000 in a 7 day period at the moment. Trying to contact stars to increase the limit atm.

      Will send some more in 24hours time.

      Turuntor contacted me and said I can ship to him via FTP. So with that in mind I should be able to send everyone the rest of the funds in 24hours.

      Thanks for staking me guys much appreciated. Sorry the results wern't great. My first losing stake for a long long time so it felt pretty disappointing to me. But I guess there is always going to be variance in a 1month stake where you mix limits HU/SH.

      Hi oskrgy, it hasn't been 24hours yet, I will send the rest in a few hours time as I said yesterday. I am just waiting for stars to remove the limits. (Aprox 5hours or so)

      Also, can you just confirm to me who you are on this list:

      iownw69 - 10% $250
      MilanBurdych - 25% $625
      tommygecko - 10% $250
      biogas - 15% $375
      Turuntor - 20% $500
      Sinnology - 20% $500

      Thanks.
