Day 144/365

Had a pretty mediocre/bad week with not much to report. Still have quite a way to go in learning omaha. I'm just gonna keep this short and sweet and hopefully do a really good blog post next week for the end of the month.


VPP/pace = 370,901 / 393,151

Day 137/365

The past week was definitely one I needed to have. I grinded pretty hard and came close to breakeven at the tables. I picked up 5k vpps and am now 18k behind pace instead of 23k. 

I think my blog posts are going to come on Wednesdays now rather than Tuesdays due to my new schedule. Last night I played til 4am.

I've adjusted my rakeback numbers. So far throughout the year I've kept my rakeback % at 63%, which was pretty close to correct when I was playing FRLHE. However, now that I'm playing PLO it's decently off. So what I've done is changed my rakeback % down to 58% which is more accurate right now. In actuality my rb now is probably about 59% and before it was probably 62% so overall it should even out. Long story short, what this means is this week was actually better than it appears, and the last two weeks were worse than they appear. 

Not much else to report, numbers below:

VPP/Rate = 355,692 / 373,973

Day 130/365

Well, Black Friday has changed a lot, but it seems that most of the changes are for the better for me, and things are working out well. Despite dropping about $1k yesterday, the past week has been my most profitable of the year, and was a week in which I was over pace.

One of the biggest differences is that I am now playing a lot of night sessions, usually finishing at 2am or later. This is because this is the new peak time for PLO games on stars. I am also starting to understand several things about this game and learning as I play, which is good. I will post a graph of my first 100k PLO hands as soon as I hit that number, currently I'm at about 70k I believe.

Regarding other stuff such as sportsbetting, I have decided to just stick everything on the backburner until I get back ahead of pace. Unfortunately this means I will almost certainly miss this years football season, but I feel that I got enough out of it in the few weeks I was tracking that once I have time to commit I will be able to do well in that area.

I have decided to just post my $Poker number at 63% rakeback from now on, and if I can be bothered I will work out the exact number at the end of the year.

Day 123/365

The last week has been good, and I feel like PLO is forming up as a very viable option. I had a 4k vpp day a few days ago which definitely increased my confidence. I'm a marginal winner in aiev, which is great at this point. Unfortunately I've run about $2k under ev so far this month so it isn't quite reflected in my results yet.

I'm going to leave this update short and sweet, mostly because I'm quite focussed just on PLO right now and everything else is taking second preference. I still really want to get back close to pace before the end of the month, and ahead of pace again by the end of June, and everything else is just going to have to wait.

VPP/Pace = 312,044 / 335,616
