Poker at a Profit??

Wow - I am really getting stoked lol. It is so cool to be a winning player for a change. It helps a lot to be tracking it here. I find my desire to win - even a few cents sometimes - is much stronger. I am forcing myself to play a different game - I find myself being much more aggressive.

What is really interesting to me is the impact that playing freerolls and FPP's is having on my game. I have always hated those kinds of games because they seem such a waste of time for such little reward. But they are teaching me patience. I always knew I struggled with patience in MTT's - but never realized what an issue it was in smaller games like the Cardschat buy-ins.

Anyway the Cardschat buy-ins at UltimateBet have been my big cash cow recently. I have placed 1st in the last 2 games and have had a couple of other cashes in them recently. It only pays out 3 places so the payouts are great.

I realize I am on an upswing - but I don't mind basking in it for a few days. Reality will come knocking soon enough lol.

I need to find a better way to track my winnings. Jotting it down on a piece of paper isn't working. I will sort through it and update it on Friday - but I estimate that my bankroll is close to $1400 and I am now up approximately $224!

Back from Reno - time to build bankroll some more

The trip to Reno was fantastic! We met up with some of our Cardschat friends and all had a great time. We drank, played poker, talked and hung out for a few days. It was very nice. And I managed to break even on my gambling.

Here is my bankroll update for the past 2 days:

$1211.55 (don't ask me where the other $9.45 went???)
- 11.00 (Bodog buy-in)
+ .79 (won at $10NL at Absolute)
+ 16.71 (won at $5NL and $10NL at Pokerstars)
+ .20 (won in a 10FPP tournie at Pokerstars - he he)
$1218.25 new bankroll

So I am up $44.54 now.

And fancy that - me winning almost $17 playing cash tables. Not bad! I know I am rolled to play higher than $10NL, but I need to learn how to beat it first.
