Right well, I am going to write up my January 09 update now because I am going out soon for the rest of the night and also will be out at football/drinking tomorrow night so won't be playing anymore this month.

My january poker journey has been a weird/long one, I started playing poker again on the 2nd of January with $20 which I had left in my account from my last withdraw.

I grinded out 2/5nl for about a 4days, moved into 10nl and started ok then tilted my ass off as standard, lost half my roll then withdrew the rest which was about $120. I then got staked a day later from Mcturnbull (25/50nlreg), he staked me for $20 and I regrinded up the same way, 4days in 2/5nl and then got into 10nl, ran bad, lost half roll and withdrew again, around the same figures. Such a degen..

I did produce sexy results when I wasn't tilted and playing my best;

A few days later, I started grinding 2nl again and got approached by a 50/100nl reg, Roseeker, who basically said. "Stop fucking withdrawing, I am going to stake you for $200 and you will play 10nl and play for real, we will work on issues that are holding you back" etc.etc. So I got staked half way through the month to play in 10nl. Through 10nl, my winrate was extremely poor compared to what it SHOULD have been because I was dealing with my degen attitude with tilt and really tried to improve myself which I think I have done with help of players such as Silver)Z(, Kwark_UK, Mcturnbull, Roseeker, EscapingR and Artantis trying to tilt me during my grinding lol!

Anyway, I finally finished 10nl

I then moved into 25nl and basically broke even for ages, adjusting to the style again of 25nl after playing 2/5/10nl for long took me a while but having cured my tilting issues and my withdrawing symptons I could deal with the swings and breakeveness which I think is really good which means now I can really concentrate on improving other aspects of my game! I am currently half way through 25nl and feeling more confident because I finally brought past being breakeven/downswinging in 25nl! Sick heater at end ;d

Even though I have been in super low microstakes most of the month, I achieved to hit gold star VIP status which is nice and I am getting back into my old self before I busted out of 50nl (read previous blogs).

My month stats and graph

Cash: +$611.44
Donkaments: +$70 give or take
Bonus: +$50

In total a month profit of around $730 which I am proud of!

Apart from poker, I have been working on my fitness and getting back into football again after a few months break and lack of training, I do weights/workout most nights, have official training once a week and match days being Saturday! So feeling a lot healthier for sure. I am also looking into renting a 3bedroom house with a few mates in the next month or so which could be interesting, hopefully should go down well. I am looking into getting some basic IT jobs, even some retail work to help support me because I am not withdrawing from poker anymore. In gaming aspects, I haven't played any this month really, haven't touched starcraft in months or any CNC game properly, I truely think my pro gaming aspect of my life is over Which is sad because I enjoyed it and made so many great friends through it and travelled to so many different places. Moving on with my life now which is great=)

Hopefully Febuary will bring me a good improving month and see where it takes me! Take careeeeeeeeeeeeeee x
