I made an effort to have a very low poker content in April. I only played in two live games and 11 online sit-n-gos. Results were mixed.
First my live play. I played the Weekend at Mookie’s tourney and did not cash (no surprise there): -$30; Then I sat at a table full of ringers and got smoked 🙂 -$50. This past weekend I hosted a crawfish boil at the house and a poker game broke out. It was 5c/10c NL and I did pretty well: +$12. Overall, not great, but not horrible.
As for online, I did really well this month. These numbers would be better, but I bubbled two SnGs last night when I shoved on the flop and was ahead in both hands. The deck screwed me both times and my monthly stats dropped. Poker is as poker does.
|In the Money:||7||64%|
This is my SnG finish distribution. I am quite happy with this:
Yeah, it is a small sample- but it shows positive growth. I am going to limit how much I play in May as well; if this trend continues I will be a very happy camper indeed.
I was approached about hosting a game at my house. I do have a very nice 10 top table (pictures here). It gets very little use so this is a good option. I will probably run a 1-2 or 2-4 limit game for a period of hours and start a $10 or $20 buy in NL tournament at a specified time. It won’t happen a lot as some of the people who might want to play might want to play at Mookie’s or Rocco’s home games and I don’t want to interfere, but it would be fun to shake it up a little. I might even do it mid-week rather than on a weekend.
