Slightly disappointed with my months play - not enough hands, and certainly not enough hands at NL100.
I had 3 nasty 4-tabling sessions at NL100 early in the month, dropping 8 buy-ins. Instead of playing through it and backing my game I dropped down to the comfort of 10-tabling NL50. I need to fix this attitude, it's costing me money.
I'm a bit weird when it comes to poker goals, I don't really have any desire to ever play above NL200. I know I am far from naturally gifted and I'm not really prepared to put the effort that'd be required for me to consistently beat higher limits. Playing poker is one of 3 income streams for me. I know myself well enough to know I have been, and will always be, a "jack of all trades, master of none".
So, 37,000 hands @ 4PTBB/100, ending $1500 in profit and paying $1465 in rake in the process! Most of these hands were at Prima, with some at Ipoker. By shopping around for the best deals I actually got 90% of my rake back in bonuses. For example VC poker ran an awesome deal last week (double & treble loyalty points) which meant their $600 signup deal equalled 100/150% rakeback. Too good to pass up. Poker Host have a $2K signup deal which equates to around 70% rb.
