I've just realised that for some bizzare reason... (prob me not pushing send button) my week one report is no where to be seen... prob somewhere flaoting around cyberspace! anyway just to recap on last week. It was a poor start to the year having moved back to 1/2 the first 3 days showed a loss of over 1600 and the rest of the week was digging my way back out of the hole I dug... I ended the week having broke even and had rakeback of $350 o show for my troubles... I took my weekly withdrawal from my BR as I promised myself..
So I decided ot move back to my comfort zone this week and play 100nl
This week was much improved poker wise although I didn't play anything like the number of hands I needed to... for 2 reasons really..... I fell during the week and broke 2 ribs and am finding it hard to sleep at night leaving me tired during the day for poker.. the main and most important reason is my partner Jackie was sceduled to go into hospital for a routene operation this week and during the operations something went horribly wrong and she got into difficulties which left her for the first 12 hours fighting for her life on a life support machine while the doctors did everything they could to resussitate her..... thankfully we got word that night that she would be ok but very very lucky to come out of it... She is still in intensive care but out of the danger zone now thank God... So a lot of my time has been spent at the hospital and I wasn't in much humour for poker when I'd come home..
Hence I played a lot of sng's this week... not a very profitable venture but a change from the norm.. I played 20 100$ sngs with a return of $2335
4452 Hands Played Profit/Loss +$610
6.78bb/100 (Poker Tracker)V$PIP 26%
Post Flop Aggro 1.77Showdowns Won 45%Rakeback $335
Also +340 from SNG's
Overall profit $ 1285
Paid my self my wages weekly this week again... I think it might be the way to do it as I don't miss it that way from my BR...
I continued giving coaching lessons to 2 guys this week and delighted to see them both doing very well... In particular one guy who I plan to write a feature on has won 40k in tourney wins since october.... lol I've been coaching him on cash games.... but I'll take some credit for it anyway...
I predict he will be a major tourney winner this year taking down a big one..
My trip to Sweden has been put off for another while so I'll update when I have news..
On my weight loss programe I managed ot shed a few of the LB's I put on over christmas by loosing 6lb's in my first week back at it although in saying that my head wasn't in it so this week I'll see how it goes but with grabbing a bit when I can this week it has not been easy...
OK update next week.... I'll make sure to press send this time or save or whatever it is I need to do.
