"I'VE BEEN DOWN SO GODDAMN LONG, THAT IT LOOKS LIKE UP TO ME!"
Ladbrokes: 55 dollars
Pacific: 376 dollars
Party: 87 dollars
Total: 518 dollars
This week I concentrated on playing at Party, got hammered and went to try my luck on Laddies, not much better. Sigh.
Given that I haven't had anything like a decent winning week for a month now, I've come to the conclusion that I need to reappraise my game.
I'm going to drop down to playing .25/.5 on Pacific and see if I can turn things around. I am also going to loosen up on my preflop calling in late position. Looking back I recall that when I last had a bad trot like this one of the issues I identified was that I was playing way too tight for the general standard of the opposition. The problem with playing too tight in microlimit games is that when you get a run of high pairs being busted by too many callers following you down to the river etc, as I have been doing, you are not getting many chances to repair the situation. This worked for me in the past so it has to be worth a try.
The other thing I need to do is get a full version of "PokerTracker" so that I can keep a close watch on what I am doing. I've had a go with the free version and it is certainly very useful.
So, the target is to get to 600 dollars before I move back to .5/1 again, which means Party is out for the time being.
Kudos to the first person to identify the song the headline came from!
