Life tilt!!!!

It just gets worse and wrose..mutther fukker!

Sunday teh TV blows up and tonight I jump in thye car to set off to work and something really doesn;t feel right. I jump out and have a flat tyre near-side rear. The only problem with that is... offside front tyre is getting low so needed changing, offside rear has a really slow puncture, so I was going to change those two, but instead one of the good two goes and gets fucked! arghhhhhhhhhhhhh

So thats £180 for two new tyres fitted and £500 for a new TV. GG bankroll.

Trying something new

After hearing about this quite a few times, I have decided to have a go at Matched betting in an attempt to build my roll back up. It doesn;t help that I have just had to make a sizeable withdrawal to help pay for a new TV as the old one went kaput. FML.

So with some great help and advice from Jon (Snake Eyes) I have proceeded to have a go at it and it looks like if you get it right you can make a few quid, depending on the bookie offers.

I have started a thread on the forum to track my progress. Would be interested to hear if anyone has done/is doing it:

The hardest bit of it all seems to be keeping up with the T+C's of the bets themselves, but I think this will get easier and more familiar with time.

Fingers crossed it goes well!

Jan Round Up

A little late but here goes:

Jan was pretty much a washout. I played plenty of hands, but sort of feels like I was pissing in the wind as I never really got very far.

CASH GAMES: 6,584 hands for a $137.54 loss, but Bonus earned: $70 = -$67.54

Ran like shit, paid an excruciating amount of rake so just fucked it off and wiothdrew most of what I had made in profits and bonus.

Full Tilt RUSH (NL25): 26,415 for a $167.04 profit + $117.44 = + $287.48

Obligitaroy graph:

My BB/100 (1.27/100) was a sack of shit, but tbh RUSH is so variance ridden that I don;t think my results are that far from the norm for an ok player.

Total = + $216.94


Didn;t play a single one! Something I plan to change this month tbh.


Small RUSH profit, which is a first because before this month I just basically spewed cash in RUSH, I  simply could never beat it over a decent sample. Luckily I have added a lot more discipline into my game this month and thankfully it is paying off a bit. Will it continue?, I just don;t know, what I do know is that bigger downswings occur a lot in rush, so I simply now never count my chickens, I just take each session at a time and try to play as optimally as I can.

I also re-joined Dueces Cracked and plan on watching quite a few different series to try and keep building on my game and adding new plays to my arsenal.

Ok, lets hope February is profitable for us all.
