Cash Game revival


I am going to be concentrating now on my cash game to try and generate loads of rakeback and keep a consistent win rate. Something that is very hard to do even for the best players in the tourney scene. So the plan of attack is to grind 9 -12 tables of 1/2 playing at a just above break even game and live off the extensive rakeback. Planning on playing 40 hours a week of this after my exams next week so i should be getting something in the region of $4000 RB a month.

I say i want to play a break even game, but atm i would be happy to do this because the step up to 1/2 from 0.5/1 is quite a big one in terms of how the games are played out, much more 3 barrel bluffs to call down, and many more non believers to your c-betting. So i need to adjust to this, and try to adjust to the regulars and try and beat them up in the mind fuck that often ensues at this level, well for the slower ppl like myself anyway! The plan is then to actually be turning a nice enough profit without rakback from playing 9 tables and if i can do this consistently i am looking at a lot of money to be made.

No need to get caught in the headlights of monies to come though, it is a distant entity as i try and mend holes in my cash game and stop spewing as a calling station and instead know what to do to support my really good calls, and my profitable plays.

I will be playing cash on and off this week, as i am still revising, but when my exams are done i may turn into a complete animal. Thing is tho with so much money on the line at one time, one slip up in terms of tilting and i will need to move down limits and grind the very nitty 0.5/1 so i can't afford slip ups and i am gonna make sure that my maturity as a poker player stays from here on in.

Gl at the tables.

More posts to come


Just a little heads up to say i am going to post as much as possible to make sure this thing doesn't die out. I'm about to go to sleep but expect to hear more in the next couple of days. ATM too tired to talk about poker and will be sleeping instead, but don't want you guys going anywhere! Will be attempting a post a day from my next post onwards. Should be quite a feat if i manage it but i think it will help me develop my english because looking at prior posts it's awful!

Also will try to maintain interest in this thing for the reader, dunno why you guys have put up with me so far, been quite boring, not had a lot to talk about and above all else self depreciative :) lol

Hope my exam revision continues to go well, want to spank them next week as hard as i am going to spank fishays this summer, attempting a £20K profit in three months. Ridiculously lofty goal, but in trying to attain this i can still get summin worthwhile.

Just need to maintain discipline. Tis fekkin hard tho sumtimes and i envy those that can play with an estute level headidness because i feel if i had this i could be dangerous. I don't so i'm not. Comes and goes with me. However, all is not lost in my pursuit of mental stamina because i used to have it when i played on the crypto tournies so i think it will be possible with the ipoker ones, just a matter of time.

So i leave you now, before the land of nod, in hope of poker prowess to come. Will it bare its head? I guess anybody's guess is as good as mine, quite clearly a worrying sign.
