I'm just 100% tired of poker.

I managed to jam K7o pre because of another pop up problem. I was attempting to jam AA (which lost) but there was lag and I shipped 25-30 bbs. I would have been fine if effin AJo folded. He hit a J on the river after I hit a 7 on the turn. But really AJo.

Today on the bubble I'm 0-2 with QQ and 0-1 with AA. I'm 1-5 overall with AA.

I'm on a combined 450 downswing after a 1,000-1,200 upswing. I understand variance but its effin brutal to have multiple days of nothing but run bad. This 450 downswing is over like 1200-1500 games.

As I'm writing this AA > KJ (1-6 now) and someone just called off 2/3 of their stack with 77. They of course hit a set. I shoved A8o 6 handed w/ 8 bbs.

so effin std

I'm already done for the day. I effin play 17 games and jam into AA 4 times... 4 effin times. TT < 88 and KK < QQ. I jammed AK into AA 2 or 3 times. O and I won few flips. I really can't get past these starts anymore. It seems like every day is the same as the day before. I start off with a 10-15 buy in DS and have to fight my way back.

One day I'll win the majority of my 70/30s when its short handed on a FT.

Until that day comes I'll just keep treading water.

I am starting to believe that the worst thing I ever did was read a book.

Well I haven't posted much. I'm not really sure what to say. The job market sucks. I haven't played as much for a variety of reasons (I'll get into a few of them below) and the job search was one of them. I sent out as many resumes as I could but most of the jobs around here are bio-tech or truck drivers. O and I did not receive a single call back.

The last three or so months have been hard. My bankroll went from 2k to 300 in about 2 weeks. The majority of the losses occurred over a two day period. I wanted to maintain Platinum. I played more volume and well obviously ran bad plus played even worse. I did not push wide enough on FTs and lost too many hands as a favorite to make up for that leak.

I dropped down to 3.40s and 3.25s. I took my roll up to 1k in about a 2 weeks or so then maxed out at 1500ish. I deposited 600 for a deposit bonus. I was going to run the 6.50 18s and 45s BUT my XP drive went down. I switched it out for an Ubuntu system. I like linux a lot but it is not the best for poker. I tried to play for a few days but everything kept crashing (Pokerstars runs perfectly under wine). PS was crashing for me because I was attempting to use AHK scripts. AHK scripts crash in linux but it did run PokerShortCuts in an older version. Unfortunately Wine (windows in linux) broke that as well. I was able to play a few tables but its incredibly tedious to just use a mouse now.

Once I was able to play a bit the electric in the house started to go bad. I lost power constantly. The breaker would trip half the house and of course the half that was tripped was mine. I couldn't really play but I'd try every now and again. I most likely broke even during this period.

Now I'm using a script called TableCrab. It works in linux since its built for linux players. xhttp://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/45/software/tablecrab-Pokerstars-hotkeys-python-linux-wine-578650/index4.html I'm also using FPDB again but its buggy this time around. They are trying to make it better for SnG players like me but its a long ways away from HEM. But once the bugs are gone it'll be fine for most players but tbh HEM is by far the best now that its integrated SnGWiz.

Anyway now that I am using programs that are native to linux I can play some volume. I usually playing 50-100 games a day when I can play. I'd like to get it to 200 again but that will take time. I'm not used to putting that kind of volume into poker. Its amazing how long it takes to get back into focusing for 6-7 hours a day.

I'm thinking of putting up a BAS for 12 45s. I'm getting tired for the 3.40 level. I really do not like playing at 6.50. I'm a break even player at 6.50s even though I've ran at 17% roi in 12 45s w/ 2500 games. I could play the 12s w/ my roll right now but tbh I'd have trouble dealing with a 30-40 buy in downswing which will happen eventually.

And a HH from today. I still run pretty god awful short handed.

Today has completely sucked. I don't think I've won a single hand with 15 or less left today. I haven't reached a FT yet and I'm probably 45 games into my session. I'm going to end it here though.

This is with 17 left.

I'm starting to lose my calm focus and instead I'm just getting pissed off with each beat. And that is the main reason why I am posting this blog entry.

So, I continue to have problems with tilting while playing 6.50 45s. I get bored of playing 3.25s and I'm not rolled to mass table 12s so I'm stuck throwing in 6.50s. I just don't get how these people think. They all seem to love flips or getting it in with weak or mediocre aces.

On the plus side the new labeling system is pretty sweet. I'm just making these people yellow since its the first color selection.

Is there a way to delete my notes?

I have spent a lot of time with my gf lately. Almost too much time since I rarely get in 100-150 games now. We've been dating for 1.5 years so we were dating (she was/is living with me) when I was putting that volume in each day but she's been sick as of late. We've ruled out lyme disease but now she needs to get an auto-immune test.

I'm not sure if this is a best case scenario but she may have lupus. If its not lupus then I'm going to get even more worried than usual. The other candidates are all bad not that lupus is good. One possibility is cancer and the others will require exploratory surgery.

On the surgery side the best case scenario is appendicitis. If that is the case then we'd be relieved. Appendicitis covers a few of her symptoms but those symptoms are included in things like lymphoma and lupus.

I really need to work on my game when its 3 handed. I've been looking at solid regs (people who are clearing close to or more than $1 a game. My stats are nearly identical until you get to the roi. We have similar early exits, mid exits, and late exits. We even have similar stats when it comes to placing in the top 3 however they have 10% or better ROI. I have a significant leak shorthanded.

I really need to buy SnGWiz and HEM. The only annoying bit is that I'll have to find my XP disc. I really have no desire to ever upgrade to Windows 7 unless XP becomes completely obsolete. Hopefully by then FPDB will be on par with HEM and SnGWiz. I can dream.

Well I finally succeeded in going 0 for 18 in 45s again.

4 FTs - 3 8ths and 1 9 plus a few more top 15s. I lost every flip once the blinds hit 400+.

......................... Hi ..............................

I've started to play a few games again. I'm not grinding a lot though. I think the most I've put in is 80 games while 20 tabling.

I have SnGWiz which has been helpful even though I think its mid-game advice blows. It only blows atm b/c I have not set up the models correctly. I'll work on that in the future but I'm not all that concerned. I'm taking its 'shove' range into consideration but I don't think I'm going to ship 2-7 offsuit.

As for my actual play - I've had my ups and downs. Right now I'm stuck in a rut. I went on a couple 50-60 plus buy in session followed by a 30 buy in downswing. I'm still in the positive but the variance is too high for my taste. A lot of it has to do with my poor play on the FT. I've tried to get away with some light shoves to only get called by big hands by players who will only call with big hands. It may just be best to stick with ICM plays for the foreseeable future.

O and it def sucks to call off my stack in a 3 way pot with A4o. I thought I had rockets If I fold that hand then I'm sitting 2-4 instead of finishing 4th. I think I played 60 games today and I failed to win one. I can tell you w/ 100% certainty that its my giant leaking holes while short handed on the FT. Hopefully Wiz will help and I'll probably start posting some of those hands in the HA section.

Why the hell did I even start to play again?

I decided to start to grind a bit to see if I could get back into the flow and start playing 12 45s or 16 18s next year. Instead I'm on a fcking 100 bi downswing ins fcking 3.25 45s. How the fck does that happen?

So I'm probably going to play to clear a bonus then take my cash off completely. Its fckin insane to consistently lose the way I lose. I know I have leaks, that I'm working to fix, but I do not think anyone loses like me. Yea yea. I know thats BS but its also partially true.

I've played 30-35 games so far today and I have copied 9 hands where I'm 70/30 or better pre but lose. I have not copied all of the hands I've been knocked out on as a favorite. Its even more frustrating to push ATs+ and get called by two random suited cards and lose. And I'm talking about a 9+ bb push thats called by someone with 9+ bbs. I know I should only make the money in about 15 to 20% of my games but I'm getting bounced way too often as a favorite to even make it past 13% per 200-300 games.
