It was a good call anyway, against literally any 2 cards, A5o has pretty decent equity, obviously +EV

When Beyne/BrotherMuzone were open shoving on my table, I was calling much worse than that, lol.

It's been a long time since I wrote in here. I think I owe it to anyone who was following to describe the eventual downfall:

Basically, September '11 was a fantastic month for me - made a lot of profit, withdrew quite a bit and bought my fiance her engagement ring with some of the profits.

October was a disaster:

A potent combination of

* Playing well outside of my limit ($5/$10 NL HU for example). And general poor bankroll management
* Playing under the influence of illicit substances and sometimes after extreme sleep deprivation
* Some genuine run-bad (I was considerably under EV)
* Playing late at night, drunk - after being out all night at the pub, etc.

Basically, I managed to wipe around $8,000 off my bankroll in around 2 weeks..In the end I withdrew my final $1,000 and left $50 on there for a bit of a play.

I spent this final $50 just being a spazz - I actually ran into BeMyAtmPls whilst doing this!

In the end - I made a profit - I withdrew quite a few thousand over Sept-October and ultimately I've withdrawn more money than I've lost. However - besides the last $1k I took out as a stop-loss, after my last deliberate withdrawal I managed to steadily drop from just under $10K down to nearly bust.

As a result of this dramatic loss - and the fact that real world financial obligations prohibited me from putting a significant amount back on - I took a break. Over Nov and December I basically did not play poker - with a couple small exceptions.

I'm not jaded or anything and this isn't the first time I've built a poker balance into the thousands and then bust. I come from a pretty hectic gambling background so I can handle the loss (mentally). And I take consolation in the fact that during my healthy bankroll period I managed to withdraw quite a bit of money and had a lot of fun along the way.

I did have to take the break though, otherwise it would be hard to build back up and keep any interest in the game. I also had been neglecting my university work - and I'm now a final year student and need to put a bit more focus there.

I've started playing again - as PKR have given me a $75 birthday present (cash in my account) + some free tournament tickets.

If I manage to find some discipline and build up my roll again playing MTTs, I may continue this blog. Time will tell.

Good idea to take a break after that kind of a dip Jess. You have more poker skills than most of the people on this forum, myself included, so when you do decide to come back full force I know you will do well. I've had two very serious dips this month as well, so I can relate to the "Oh sh*t" feeling, although the influences that cause me to play poorly aren't the same as yours. Blink When you are ready to go back you will know it. GL dude.

Good luck in all future endeavours Jess.

Thanks for the brutal honesty in your blog, and i hope you hit a nice patch of run good just when you really need it. All the best fella.

I feel sorry for you that you lost a decent amount, but as you wrote you still made a profit.
I wish you best luck for building up a roll again and I am very much convinced you can do that.
GL to you.

8000 is a big amount to lose in 2 weeks but you did good by taking break after that.
hopefully you'll come back strong this year, wud be nice to read some updates of MTT wins in this blog

You took the most appropriate decision. Probably you should have done that a bit earlier than losing the 8k in just 2 weeks. You do described the no goes for playing poker and the good thing is that you can see your mistakes.
I hope you wont repeat them this year.gl

I´ll give you one thing:

No-one can say the path you follow is boring or lacks excitement.
Fodder for an exciting mini-series. Big Smile

I love the way you always take things in stride, and just get going again. Time after time.
This must be challenge no. 1258 for you, building up from $75 again. lol

Haven´t been very active myself for many months now, both here and with the game, but am trying to find the time to start up again more seriously.
Should be doable from now on.

So I hope you get back to posting here, it´s always a pleasure to read your "turbulent" shenanigans. Big Smile

Good Luck Mate!
