My aim in poker is to win a Sit N Go Jackpot and have total poker winnings of $50,000. Since the end of 2010 I have been recording my progress in this blog. Currently I am playing the Maui Jackpot Sit N Go games, working on ways to improve my win rate % and thus increase my chances of hitting the Jackpot. My profit total at 1st December 2015 is $26,377.
Monday, 1 August 2011
July Result: +$66, YTD: +$1726
A mediocre month at best on my Maui Challenge though I did manage to increase the overall volume of games played. A small direct Maui profit of $29 was boosted by rakeback and a couple of small freeroll cashes.
The reality is that my game is somewhat patchy and there are some decent regulars reducing my returns. The thing I must remember is the high fees and high variance of these Jackpot games which are structured to end in a series of coin flips and frustrating cold deck confrontations. I must keep focusing on making good decisions and not worry about luck based outcomes.
My aims for August include:
1.Finish and review Jared Tendlers book "The Mental Game of Poker"
2.Have a solid winning month including a consolation bonus win.
3.Find a good borderline decision hand history to look at.
