Back to the 2's

Ah well, no sooner had i started playing the 7's then i had dropped under the 150 buy ins i want for them, only played bout 20 of them and was doing ok pretty much even, but wasnt running great at the 2's so dropped the 7's till i get back up.

then when i finally started to run good last night and i was sitting on 2 final tables 2nd in chips on both with 4 and 8 players left on them, eircom decided to go off on me!!!I was running around like a lunatic checking modems, reparing ip address etc, by the time i had got back online it was all over, blinded out in 4th and 5th.

just as well i'm not a high stakes mass grinder, i had 4 tables of $2 going and i was in meltdown lol.

Didnt play a whole lot as my brother and sister are home from australia for a couple of weeks for my dads birthday, so was spending some time with them, Went into town tuesday and done the tour of the guinness store house......very touristy, even though were all from Dublin!! and had a few pints round temple bar so that was a good day out.

Hope to get back into the grind and up my volume as i'm very happy with how i'm progressing and approaching the games even if i'm running into hands at crucial times, my main goals at the momont are to get my roll back up to play the 7's regurly by the end of january and to make the sharscope leaderboard for $2 games <6 tables, So i'm gonna make a real push for that over the next 2 weeks!
Wish me luck lol

Got my stripes!!

As the name suggests i reached the 150 buy in mark for the $7 180's, my coach informed me that i can start mixing them in with the 2's. Still finding it hard dealing with the swings in the 180's, had another 80 game loosing streak, then 1 win and its all sweet again, you just got to keep playing and hope your making the right decisions till it comes back around, it's homer in the simpsons when they dig the big hole and cant get out.....we'll dig our way out!!!
All in all though its still going well, very happy with the 2's still keeping in aroung 50%, started the 7's yesterday got 4th in my first one so was freerooling for the day and broke even in them,

Happy new year everyone! Now christmas is over time to get back to reality and try build this bankroll with some effect!
been up and down since the last time going on another 100 game loosing streak to turning it around again over the last few days of 09, started throwing in some $4 180's with my $2's and they brought me back to winning ways, they seem handy enough, 15 minute blinds so for the first hour you can sit back while everyone kills each other off!!
all in all between the 2's and 4's played 278 with a 50% roi, so i'm still moving upwards!!
Hope everyone has a great 2010
