Week 4 was more of the same. Not sure why I played so few hands. I vaguely remember shortening some sessions because I was sweating like a pig (the AC has since been fixed). But less than 18K hands when I've been home all week is pretty poor. I've gotta stop slackin'. I put in a 12 hour session yesterday, and I felt pretty good afterward, so I think I can get back on track. I have two more days of grinding left in the month!
Weird that I don't remember getting all of that run good, but maybe it's because I got wanged a bunch of times on the river, so I felt somewhat unlucky. It's hard to tell from the graph, but I feel like I'm playing better. Still plenty of room for improvement tho.
Now that I'm feeling better about some of the things I'm doing, I decided to re-expand my horizons and start playing the shallow tables and MTTs again. I just don't understand how I can't cash in an MTT - like I really don't think I'm playing poorly, but I can't cash in one of those things to save my life. Not to sound like a fish, but online tournaments are seriously rigged.
Fortunately, I've been using my Ironman medals and FT points to get the $75 tourney tickets, so it hasn't actually cost me any "cash." I'm thinking I may be having trouble playing with shallow stacks (since I can't get in the money), so I'm putzing around with different things at the shallow tables - mostly min raising as a core strategy and 3betting light. FTOPS starts again in a few weeks, so I really want to try and make a few good runs. C'mon! One time!
