Finaly, I make it back to the black for the month.

After a turbulant month that stated with a big downswong and me loosing $300 or so, I have finaly manged to get my month back to even and then change. In toatal im up around $35 which only happened after a very memorable win in a 36 player $3 rebuy satty to the full tilt $750K on sundays.

This win has me buzzing but I think it is smart to take the T$216 instead of playing as that represents around 30% of my toatal bankroll now.

I havent played as much as I had hoped to so far this month and definately not posted here as much as I had hoped to but with time off and nothing to do for a week or so leading up to and just after new year I intend to make up for it all and pawn some donks.

Merry fucking christmas all!!!

November Summary

November was a very nice month for me. I started with $116 in the pokerstars account after going awall again the previous month at the cash tables. This month however i decide that i would take the "fuck cash games sit n go's baby!" approach to things which seems to have wroked out really well for me.

I started off playing $3.40 10 person turbo sit n go's. This was my little jem, i managed to play 100 in a week and get the best score on the high orbit Battle of the planets leaderboard aswell as 43rd on the low orbit leaderboard. This netted me a cool $310 bonus and a ticket to the $50k shootout freeroll but we will get to that later.

After the amazing week playing $3.40's i decided to step it up to $6.50 9 and 18 person sit n go's. This went all right, ended up about $120 more profits. Although my average profit in the 9 person's was less than the $3.40 level but I am putting that down to an insane heater at the $3 level.

However as good as holdem is the varience of turbo sit n go's was getting to me, it became a bit of a grind so for the last 5 or so days of the month i mixed my play around in non turbo, 9, 18, 27, and 45 holdem tournies aswell as Omaha High/Low sit n go's. Both these ventures proved to be fun and equally importantly profitable. I averaged about 30% roi in the holdem games mention but amazinly averaged $7 profit playing $11 Omaha High/Low 9 person sit n go's.

The awsome roi % in the Omaha High/Low sit n go's has really inspired me to play these almost exclusivly and try and play 100 in a week as i would have a great shot a taking out the leaderboards with my current stats in these. The play is terrible and i have made 3rd place numerous times with the short stack when two big stacks got it in against each other. I find i just seem to have the knack for Omaha high/low which makes it the most fun game for me to play, aswell as very profitable. We will see how i am doing with a few hundred more under my belt before we become to elated with the short term results though.

Now, back to the $50k shoot out that i gained entry to. As we speak it is still running and i can see my eliminator still in it which really pisses me off. I had played solid down to HU on the first table of the shootout. The winner would advance to the seccond round and net a cool $195 which is about 25% of my current bankroll. I was at a 2:1 chip disadvantage but manged to build my stack back up and no less than 4 times get it in with dominating hands. A9
As annoying as the $50k shootout was at the end of the day it was only a freeroll and i dont doubt i will be there again next month os all in all I am very pleased with my month in poker and look forward to pawning some donks at the sit n go tables!
