      Me and tac3znarf are having a race this month. we are just playing for bragging rights and for extra motivation.

      its a tad late to make this thread but i thought it was a good idea so i can post my thoughts and graphs and stuff here instead of filling up his blog.

      we both have a target of min. 4500$ this month and we are both doing above expectation. i am running with 8.16 bb/100 atm even after a very bad weekend which i am very happy with and tac3znarf is doing even better.

      standings are:

      Raun: 1745$
      tac3znarf: 2889$

      and here is a graph of our standings so far (left side of the image):




      edit: hmm seems i made a small mistake with the graphs. forgot to start them off at 0... oh well...

      I think you have just read my mind. :)

      I was also planning to start a new thread about our race.

      Anyway, I was not able to play much today. My withdrawal has been credited to my bank account so my wife and I went on a shopping spree. We just bought a new sofa set and since she is pregnant she also requested some hard bound books to read (Twilight Saga).

      I will have my evening session in few hours so I hope I can extend my lead. :)

      i hope my luck returns next week.

      also if anyone could explain to me exactly what "donk factor" is i would appreciate it. i have a pretty good idea about it but i would like to know how it works.

      I played 1k hands and won $13. I made too many mistake and even lost a lot because of "tilt".

      I just wish I can immediately realize when I am already in a bad mood or tilt to avoid unnecessary lost of chips. :( :(

      thanks a lot juice :D

      well tac3znarf try and notice how your mood is. are you feeling angry or frustrated or expecting to loose then it is likely that you are tilting. but i cant really tell you how to realise when you are in such moods

      Nov09: -$135
      Nov10: $1054

      Total November: $3808


      I was extremely lucky towards the end of my session. I was dealt with premium five premium cards within 50 hands and all of them got paid. I even had AQo against QQ all in preflop and I spiked the A on the river. I won more than $500 in these hands. :)

      dont worry i havent given up :D

      and im not unhappy about my results for the month so far either. i mean i am running above 7bb/100. no shortstack can complaint about that.

      i should really incoperate another session in my routine. that could really boost my winnings. if only i wasnt so very very lazy lol.

      today i started off loosing 300$ in 30 minutes. ouch. but i recovered and finished the day on +393$ which i can only be happy about.

      Today I won $219.

      I was too tired towards the end of my session and commited a lot of mistakes.

      Lesson learned: Know when to end a session. :)


      the score is:

      raun: 2455$
      tac3znarf: 4028$

      today i ran a bit bad and i finished 133$.

      i think i really need to switch site soon. there is nowhere near enough traffic on cake and im sick of playing like 4 nl 200 tables and only 1 nl400 and 1 nl600 table when i really should be playing at least nl400+.

      i just need to stop being so lazy and get hem downloaded and import some hands. i think i will make the switch in december. i will switch to stars or FTP.

      unfortunately the laziness is strong in me so we will just have to see...

      i am now up 2591$ for the month running at 7,45 and i think im getting very greedy by watching tac3znarf's results because it really takes big winnings to make me happy these days.

      Today I won $300 in 757 hands. I had a bad start, at one point I was already losing $400 but I managed to get a hold of myself and recovered the losses. :)

      I am now winning $4328 this month.

      thanks a lot juice good luck to you too :D

      today i didnt play well and towards the end of my session i threw away ~100$ on bad play. i.e in a pot against a loose/passive played i tried to get him to bet into me ^^
      and other stuff like that. another time i simply forgot to cbet and just check/folded. dunno why my focus was so off.

      i finished 412$ for the day which is of course nice but i also ran quite well and above ev.

      so the score as of nov. 12. is:

      Raun: 3003$
      tac3znarf: 4328$

      it would seem that sharpstats is a bit inaccurate so my winnings my not be completely accurate but its very close.

      i'd also like to post a few hands from today. they will be raw hh's as i am sick of buggy cake converters.

      this was one of the first interesting hands of the day. my opponent is a known fish. there isnt much to talk about it just frustrated the hell out of me.

      in this 2. one i wasnt really of wether i should cbet or check behind, but i do think i made the right choice since worse hands will also call here.
      also because of my stacksize and the board i'd say its more about protection than potcontrol here
      as far as i remember the villain is loose weak.

      Raun, very nice winnings for the day.

      It was nice chatting with you earlier and again sorry for disturbing your game.
