Week 3 review - "Mini-Heater"


January 15th - 21st

I ended up being quite busy this week, and I only managed to put in about 2 and a half days work so my volume was rather pathetic. I switched from playing 6, 9, 18 and 45-mans to playing 18, 45 and 180-mans. I also dropped down in stakes, avoiding the $60 18-mans that I have been doing so terribly in, and playing $15 18-mans in their place. I felt a lot more comfortable, managing the number of tables better, and being a little more sure of my ranges.

It felt kind of ironic that I earned 3 times as much as I did in the first 11 days (~75 hours) as I did in these measly 2.5 days (~20 hours), but that's poker/variance for you. It was a relief to go on somewhat of a heater and definitely a boost to my weathered confidence. I will be trying to put a decent amount of hours in before my second born arrives sometime in the next 3 weeks!

Appreciate you reading the blog, but I'm afraid you aren't going to get any free strategy out of me :)

hi. i see you play 18man+
is it worth something or just luck based? (is that guaranteed money if you play well and run average?)
otherwise i'd play fifty 50!?

i dont quite understand how that works though.
ty for your answer

Ah I getcha.

It's worth something like 2-3% extra rakeback.

Yes it's luck based but if you play decently well, you'll have patches where you bink the leaderboard.
