Poker Ramblings of cmitch

I posted some goals for Nov 19 - Dec 31 on Nov 19th. It mostly focused around limit holdem. I was feeling good about the game and after a really good run (around $1.60/hand over 10k+ hands), I felt like it was the game for me. Now, I'm not so sure. Maybe, it is just running bad (with a little bit of tilt mixed back in). I'm not sure. I'm still up at LHE but have given back around 2/3rds of what I won. It isn't fun and I'm thinking that I was just running extremely well at the beginning. The downswings in limit can be brutal, depsite the fact that it is LIMIT.

The good news is I turned a lot of my pokerstars FPPs into cash and am on the positive side of the MTTs.

So, I'm giving up the goals I set. I'm not really sure why I ever set number of hands type goals. I think it forces me to play when I normally wouldn't.

I'm not off track, but feel like I need to get back on track. (Not sure if that makes sense, but I am always hard on myself when I feel like I am playing below my capabilities.) I have taken quite a big break from NLHE and I think I am missing it. I'll probably screw around with some tourneys and cash games over the next few days before deciding where to focus next.

  1. Limit holdem can be excruciating. I've found that when I am running good at the game I feel like a God and I can't be beaten, and when I am running bad at the game I feel like it's impossible to win. It's quite a momentum and rush game.


  2. I agree, it can be a brutal when you go on a down swing but so great when you're up.

    I just wanted to say Go Gators!


  3. The downswings in limit seem especially brutal, moreso than NL. There are way more suckouts in limit.
