Here's the $5+R PLO8 tourney from last weekend. As you can see i have the bridesmaid dress on. I was thinking of doing a 'Journey to the final table' with this one but I'm not sure if the interest is there for PLO8. Anyway the pokerhand website seems to be down or sold or something. This is a bit of a dose as all the hands i have linked on my posts are not retrievable anymore. I had a look at Brian Townsend's blog some others and it seems to be the same deal everywhere.
I've had a relatively quiet poker week since two mammoth sessions on Friday and Saturday last weekend. Just played a small bit of PLO on the $0.50/$1 tables during the week and made a small profit which i lost on MTTs and STTs.
Following some advice from 4CardGrind I've opened another account on Pokerstars which i'll use for holding my bankroll. Just a small security measure since I'm posting my balance at the end of each post. If i decide to post any hands i play using that account it'll be the Hero-Villain story that people use.
As regards my goals for the month I think i achieved all of them. Number 1, i always made sure i had a winning attitude when sitting down to play. Not too sure if I've been play tighter but i think i've been bluffing less, which is good i think. Especially in PLO. I learned that not everyone plays the nuts, the hard way. Taking that extra 5 seconds and engaging the brain is a life saver. The days of 'Aaahhhh fuck you I'm all in' are hopefully done. Playing less and longer sessions is working for me. Its easier be patient when you know you gonna be playing for a while. And finally, I tripled my bankroll which is also nice.
Won't be playing much poker this weekend cause I'm goin to see Nas in Dublin on Sunday. Seen him the last time he was in Eire and it was well sick, so I'm looking forward to this one. I'll put a descent session in during the week and post some hands and that.
