Life Shouldn't Be A Fuckin' Grind

I will never be a poker pro, but my lifetime poker ledger is positive and I think that's something to be proud of.

I'm a SnG man, Doin' what I can

I think I've decided that I should go back to focusing primarily on SnGs in online poker and here's why. Full Ring LHE has gotten so tight that it doesn't feel worth it for me to play, I'm not enjoying it and it's very difficult to beat. 6-max LHE seems to be where the money is in Limit, but unfortunatley I've never had any luck with it. I still think that I'm mostly just running horrendously in that game. My stats don't seem to be all that far off where their supposed to be and the play is pretty bad overall, but I just can't seem to beat it and it's incredibly frustrating so I think it's best for my bankroll and my psyche that I try to stay away from it as much as possible. I can still go to the Casino a couple of times a month to get my LHE fix and keep my game relatively sharp. I've also never been able to do all that well at NL cash games so I doubt I'll be playing much of that either. I'll try to stick mostly to SnGs and MTTs and maybe mix in a little low limit play at some of the other games as I try to become proficient at the Omaha and Stud variations of poker.

I had a decent month of October despite a sick run at 1/2 6-max on UB the last couple up days. I still managed to move my bankroll up a couple hundred bucks on the month and I'm sitting right around $1400 online right now. I still have money in a savings account that I made from poker as well and I've spent something like $3k worth of poker winnings in the past year, so I feel pretty good about being ahead of the game.
