live poker vent
LikeASet, May 12 2014
Up about 15k since feb but month of may is being really shitty, currently around -2900 for the month and half of it is due to shitty play. I need to add more structure and discipline to this craft of grinding live poker, I'm playing for way too long, making poor decisions, playing way too wide when I'm card dead or slightly tilted and I'm not taking good care of myself health wise.
Time to turn this thing around...
Plan for summer, while working part time (25ish hrs per week);
play 40 hrs of live poker per week minimum,
end sessions earlier when starting to get tired, tilted, table becomes poor
get back to working out 4-5 times per week
cook 90% of food at home minimum
improve on relationship with gf, (spend more time together, etc.
long term live poker goal is still trying to average 30$ hr for at least a year sample
limit games beatable?

a lot of the time if im wait-listed for my local nl holdem game i'll play limit holdem or limit plo hi lo. the stakes for these games range from 3/6-4/8 with kill pots that increase the blinds 50% for the following hand. I was just wondering if that even if the player pool is the baddest of the bad, with a 4$ rake is the game slightly winnable or should you expect to be just losing money slowly over time with these limit games?

My local live game which is 10 min away has had a new structure for the past few months, small blind = 2, big blind = 3 , 5 to go, must bet in increments of 5 unless all in, max buy in = the deepest stack at the table.
march + 5650
april + 2650
I just had a $2100 losing day playing pretty spewy and semi tilted, I need to invest in an Ipad to keep me from getting bored because I'm pretty sure I'm raising too loose from early positions. My best day so far this year at this game is probably around +$1800. I definitely have to keep improving my game even though I pretty much have an edge over everyone that goes there, and I'm not even super good.
quick question, has anyone ever taken notes on people during live sessions? I was thinking about starting to do that if I buy an Ipad or something.
