Girl With A Watering Can

Things are going horrible lately. I feel like I'm just wasting my time and energy. I have played a tonne all night and have a huge headache, unfortunately the results were not there.

I thought a lot about it, and I decided to take a mature decision and stop it here. The way it's been going lately is driving me nuts and I know how easy it is to lose $2K-3K in a night and I don't want to jeopardize money already made for the project in such a small time frame, so every time I play I feel huge pressure and that's the last thing a poker player should feel when playing. It wouldn't be very smart and I just am
not feeling it at all.

On to the results for the month, it started ridiculously awesome but went to shit real fast. I've basically been breaking even for the past two weeks. I've been playing ridiculously good though and I honestly cannot blame myself for this because I am fully aware that it's just bad luck/variance.

Played a bunch of tournaments this month and came close to some big scores 2 times but it didn't happen.
I will be playing my last tournament for the month this Sunday on PokerStars (Sunday Million, biggest prizes for an online tournament) and this will be it for me, the project and July. I need a break.


End profits for the month: $12,000. So that's $6000 going to Toby. I did my best, now it's in your hands Toby.


I would like to thank every one who has supported me through this and all of you who read my blog. Feel free to drop me a comment here and/or on last.fm (username is Caliban51) they will be very appreciated.


Finally, here are two graphs about the month for those who might be interested.

This first one is basically number of hands/profits. The Green line is the one that counts (the profits). This graph is missing $5000 near the middle in profits that I made from other computers when I had my PC problems aforementioned.




This second graph is pretty important in determining if you are either playing bad or running bad (being unlucky). It shows how much money you've won when you went all-in and how much money you should have won mathematically if the luck factor was squeezed out. It shows that I made $4K in all-in winnings instead of $8K. I guess Lady Luck doesn't like maudlin of the Well all that much.



Gonna go make my donation now, Toby if you are going to credit me in any way, please use my name and not the one on paypal because I'll be using my mother's credit card because mine's limit isn't high enough for this transaction.


Have a nice summer everyone,
