I must be rusty at STT SnGs or the gods just aren’t smiling down at me today.

Not to sure why but I decided to 4table some STT SnGs today.

Been a while since I played them as I’ve been playing thousands of DoNs recently. That updated report will come soon but for now I just want to whinge.

So bask in the glory of what it’s like to be f***ed over in 4 consecutive games.

Obvious top set no good

Naturally run into aces against a person who’s 100/60 after 5

Another donk who’s min-raised every pot wakes up with an over pair BVB

3 outer me, yeah sure, why not?

I’ve suddenly remembered why I 16 table and pay no attention to this constant shit.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while.

Will come back with GOOD NEWS soon about the Team Moshman progress and DoN grinding.

Why can’t the better hand just hold up?

I suppose I was only like 57% favourite but why let the flop hit me and then take it away.

Meh, least it’s a nice ROI for the morning.

Maybe this post is just a small brag for the morning :p

Interpret however you wish, but I’m happy & sad at the same time.

I’m officially banned from all cash games at PokerStars.

After 3 weeks of just taking an absolute battering at the $5 Double or Nothing games and spiralling into an uncontrollable depression about it I did what any degenerate dumb gambler would do and started playing cash games, smart move Custo.

I won’t bore you with the details but I went from +$200 in cash in less than a week to I think a negative figure, I’m not sure, I don’t want to look at it but it probably is. I ran hotter than ever when I started then once it went to my head I started believing I can stack off 80bb deep with bottom pair against anyone cause I am better and they are just making a move…..then they call me with queens full.

I’ve not blatantly spewed of so much money like this for a while and it just sucks. So what’s the solution? No more cash games.

I saw PokerStars have an option for a “self-ban” from certain game types so I have banned myself from logging into any form of cash game there is. To be honest, it feels great. I’ve only spewed of cash coming of the back of a bad run in tourneys. If I didn’t run bad I would never have played cash. By doing this I have no option but to focus only on what I want to get better at.

Now granted the self ban can be lifted after 24 hours by emailing support but honestly if I go on uber monkey tilt its not like I’m going to email Stars, sit at the computer for 24 hours and then spew more money. So it stops me from jumping ship immediately and losing so much more.

Anyways here’s my proof, although I’m not really posting this for proof, more as my own bookmark so I can remember in years to come when I’m one of the worlds best tournament players and remember that it all happened because I finally said “no more” to cash games and started to pay attention to 1 form of poker.

So too all you cash sharks out there, you can no longer have my money :)

To all your tournament grinders, I’m coming!
