Day 298/365

Well, this is certainly my latest blog post of the year so far, I'll make an effort to get them done a bit earlier over the next couple of months but I guess I just prioritise this below playing and other life stuff.

The past week I guess I ran bad, finishing about 30 buyins below aiev, and getting over 50 buyins below aiev over the past couple of weeks (about $7k under expectation for the month). However, I managed to turn my aiev line around and have a positive week in aiev, and despite running so bad only actually dropped about $1k on the month so there is a lot to be happy about. I think in my plo career thus far I've gone from playing bad and running good, to playing bad and running bad, to now playing good and running bad. I guess all that's left now is playing good and running good, so I'm definitely looking forward to it. =)

My vpp gap (between actual and pace) is now closing and is at a point now where I really feel motivated to get it all back due to it being a more manageable size. I think the next few weeks will really be crucial but I'm excited that regardless of results the home straight is approaching, and am already making plans for next year.

Anyway, numbers:

VPP/Pace = 777,135 / 815,069

$Poker = $63,407


  1. ~23% to go, feeling good?!

    Best of luck for the home stretch!

    Plans for next year?!

  2. In before: You should come to Thailand and play poker with me!

  3. Yeah feeling good, but have a few commitments in December which leaves me a bit worried still. I just have to absolutely kill November.

    Next year I still want to find work here and aim to at least hit that 50k a month number to hold SNE for 10 months. If possible 2peat but I won't be upset if that doesnt happen.
