LHE Challenge: Days 4-5

Total Profit: +€425 ... BB/100: 1.11
Things seem to have been going much better the last couple of days, although bizaarely my bb/100 has gone down. I have been playing much more sensibly, am playing €1/2 games as standard with at most one table of €2/4 mixed in. This is mostly just so I am playing enough tables, as traffic is sometimes a little light, and partly due to table selection; I have no interest in playing on a table with 4 regs who all play a 30/20 style.

Limit is so swingy, as my graph below depicts. Fortunately I had a very nice upswing at the end of today, largely due to picking up AA, AA, KK, KK and QQ in a short space of time on different tables and winning 2 big pots, 2 small pots and lost only a small pot with them. This plus there were a couple of maniacs feeding me chips!

My hourly rate is now similar to what I was making at heads ups. I think I can play more hours of this, and I'm playing the lowest limits I'm ever going to bother with right now so definitely potential for that to rise. Am doing some reading to iron some of the kinks out of my game, hopefully my bb/100 can increase a little bit over the next couple of days...

Hands Played: 6908
Hours Played: 27

Profit: €200
Rakeback: €225

Hourly Expectation (inc. RB): €15.50
Most Profitable Hand (by average big bets per hand): AA

On a side note, I have helped staked a couple of Blondeites who are going to play a bunch of MTTs on Blonde Poker. Have a 5% chunk of them both, here's hoping they score big!!

I used to play limit all the time and was pretty profitable at it but discovered NL and can't get myself to play it again.

I might have to dabble with it again if it shows t be profitable and a not a bot infested, rock-garden I see it as now!

Well done mate I wish I could apply some of the discipline to my approach that you do.

Getting a % of Dave Penly was awesome imo. If I had seen earlier I would have taken the whole lot. He ought to crush those games.

Lol Phil, I need Bankroll managment tatooing on my forehead if you ask me!

No worries AMC, am looking forward to seeing how it goes!

Pud, yeah it's a grind, but if you can avoid the regs it's potentially profitable...

Cheers Cos, I wish I had more spare cash tbh else I'd have put in more. I have had major discipline issues in the past man, I only just keep them in check now!

Thank you all for reading/commenting :)
