playing so baaaaaad

profit so far of $1k for the month, from a peak of $2.7k but what worries me is how bad i'm playing.

on target for 10k vpps half way through the month, and quite enjoy playing but i'm trying to force it too much and making basic basic mistakes which i really need to cut out.

luckily i find the occasional idiot to help me out a hole. today a guy ran up $100 to $1k on a $1/2 table before finally leaving with $300. i helped myself to most of it and don't understand why more people don't try to play hands against these people. hit anything and you get paid! his bet sizing was so easy to read though it didn't stop me paying him off twice when i know i should have folded. basic mistake.

think i may get a new comp and the 24" screen from the stars shop. or maybe i'll just but a screen and get a ps3 and wii instead.

where to play?

still playing between 3/4 tables. seem to play better with 3 and running hot so far this month. though haven't played as many hands as i would like.

however, having said that, as i was going to sleep last night i realised that stars vpp's are reset every year, so my plan of hitting the rakeback targets was shot to pieces since i was looking at doingit over 2/3 years.

so i might have to move to fulltilt for cash games. the only problem is stars games are so weak. it's more profitable there than playing at crypto inc rakeback and bonus's which i don't get on stars.

gonna keep playing at stars for a few weeks at least i reckon till i work out what to do.

looking again at what fpp's can buy, and even though i'd make over 25k per month there isn't very much appealing things. am trying to work out what's the best value for money since i guess i have to use them. perhaps the sunday warm up? maybe a 24" monitor. might get a new comp anyway from dell which comes with a monitor and would be cool to have 2.

any ideas about where to play (somewhere with lots of players and rakeback obv) or ideas about what to spend the fpp's on would be much appreciated. not that anyone reads this!

march roundup - was up at 4k profit before i finished off hitting plat status, but dropped about 1k reaching it. well worth it!

have since played a couple sessions of $2/4 and once bought for 300, rebought 200 twice and eventually left with 630. time before was last month and i got stacked by a fish with bottom set!

worst experience for a while was 2 days ago with a massive useless fish on my left who kept beating me! never called my river value bets when i had monsters. always knew when to bet/call when i was bluffing. one time when i check the river with the nuts is the one time he doesnt bet it. and he just gave all my monies to everyone else at the table!!!

other than that all good so far this month. just need to play more hands, more hands!
