Feb results

well the month of feb was not a bad month could have been better but i cannot complain here r the cash game results

43,783 hands at 100nl 6max +1,077
768 hands of 50nl 6max +152

i also played few sngs such as the 20$ dons and did well in them with about a 12%roi
i didnt play 2 many mtts but did ft a 12/180 turbo saturday for 4th place finish.

i made almost 16k in vpp which is is just a little under 1k worth of fpps for concierge. i decided just concierge 500$ worth of fpps and i cashed out 1k check.

i do have some good news on the home front. we have made a huge step in our life and have purchased our first house. its not brand new was built in 95 but is in great condition and has totally been redone inside with new central heat and air system to boot. my wife is very excited and has already been buying up things to decorate the new house i should have pics posted on my facebook in the coming days as we get moved in and such.

well i did not reach the 20k vpp goal for feb but it was a short month and i got lazy so for the month of march i should be able 2 get the 20k vpp mark. well thats all for now

just grinding it out

well so far update for the month. i have played

11,472 hands of 100nl +749 at 36$ an hour

i also have played a session of 2/4 limit triple draw and finished -80
trip draw stats for feb
During current Triple Draw 2-7 session you were dealt 127 hands
Pots won if drawing - 6 of 31 (19%)
Pots won at showdown - 6 of 16 (37%)
Pots won without showdown - 8

i also been mixing in some 20$ turbo DONS when the cash grind is slow and overall i am 22-9 in those so thats a decent roi. these little sngs r fun and really gotta play a different style vs other regular sngs. so i can only play about 5 at a time so i can pay attention to chips stacks and such but they r very profitable with low varience.

thats about it for the month so far. justin and i r gonna go play live in the morning in the casino in oklahoma. so gl us

The Month of January

well lets start off by saying that january was a very good month for me at the cash tables here r the results

25,920 hands at 100nl 6max +2,020 at almost 40$ an hour.
3,909 hands at 50nl 6max -111.

obv i need to play more than that but that got me by anyways. i also play lots of mtts through out the the month and u can check those results at opr or sharkscope for the sngs b/c i am to lazy to look at those

well as far as the tunica trip goes we got there on a thursday and stayed through sunday. i played 2 mtt a 240$ 6max that i totally donked up and was out and at 340$ mtt that i actually won a 45$ 10 man sng to so i freerolled that up woot.
i played in that for about 6 hours and busted right before the dinner break with aq<66 aipf. i really couldnt get anything going in that and played a shortstack most of the mtt. play lots of cash games 1-3nl and did no good there. we also hit the roulette table and that was fun. for the trip mtts,cash games, food, drinks i finished down 675~ so i sent my receipts in and got it all concierge with the supernova status so that helps pay for the trip so it really was just a big freeroll.

got to hang out with yankees31 and he is 1 cool cat. prob gonna hang out with him in vegas as well b/c he is getting a sweeeetttttttt pad for wsop. so wife and i will prob spend a weekend there with him during the wsop. so prob gonna save up my fpps for that weekend.

well thats all for now i gonna shoot for 20k vpp month for feb so i better get my ass on it.

that includes 13,777 hands of 100nl 6max and 3,909 hands of 50nl which was at the start of the month b/c i was waiting on my rakeback from my fpps b/c i cashed out some.

mid month

well its about time to update i guess first of all here r the month totals.

8,972 hands of 100nl 6max +863
3,909 hands of 50nl -111

i had to play some 50nl earlier in the month while i was waiting on my 1k conceirge from pokerstars b/c i had to take out 1k for new tires and rims for my truck that i was desperatly needing. so obv i suck at 50nl and i think its the devil...lolz. anyways played few mtts right at about break even nothing special there to report.

i did go play live yesterday played a 35r which i was in for 85$ after rebuy period with about 7.5k stack. there was about 40 entrants and i bubbled the final table of that. then i grinded for 3hrs at the 200nl table to finish +40 there. i was playing that waiting on the evening 50$ mtt +%5$ add onn for 1k so i played that. there was 27 players only in that. i ran over my first table and got slapped by the deck before break and had around 16k in chips. when we went to the ft i had around 15k with the blinds at 4/800 and dbling every 20mins so now it became a shvoe fest. well people got knocked out and there was 4 of us left. bbis 1k with no antes. i have 13k. utg limps folds to me i look down at 44 and shove he calls with a9 flop a9x gg me i could not catch up so i was the bubble boy of the money. i went to play live to get in some practice for the tunica trip less then a week away.

i am ready for that for sure should be a good time so far its me, justin (bigtimin),dickerson (arkansasmatt), and his brother in law. going and then we r meeting up with yankees31, and some other ithers there. so surely 1 of us donks can ft someting and win some monnies.

now i would like to thank my wife for leting me go on this trip this is my first poker trip with actual money that i can gamble with from winning monnies at pokerstars. i like the fact that she supports my poker and knows and beleives in me that i can win and make a good partime job out of this game because that what it has become..lolz. so to show some of my appreciation i am gonna give her 300$ to spend on whateever she wants while i am gone. aint i a good husband???.......i luv u babe.

aight well thats about it so far for supernova vvp this year i have collected 4,101 vpp.

for new years wife and i went out with some freind and got tore up and had a great time. i hope everyone else had a safe and great holiday. as far as christmas we had a great 1.

i also got to go on the greatest duck hunt of my life that people would probably pay thousands of dollars 2 go on and here is a pic from that. we killed 47 ducks in 45 mininutes it was unreal. my gun barrel was smoking.



hopefully i will get 2 go on another 1 of those hunts. my son really liked seeing all those
