kid's blog
After the success of my monthly blog I decided I'd make this a continuous occurence in the hope that i can look back at my play from the past in order to learn a thing or two.

This log is about improving my play, and discussing hands. I'm more than happy (in fact i encourage), people to post advice and opinions on some of the hands I post so that i can improve my play. I'll do my best to not post any bad beats or anything of that nature, I wont this to be a log where people benefit.

I have been playing online for almost 2 years now.

The situation:

At the moment I play on 4 different sites.

POKEROOM: This is where I started playing for money roughly 2 years ago now. I have been successful on there and it is the softest competition I play against. This is also where the majority of my bankroll is.


On here I will be playing mainly 50 dollar tournaments as there is a spread of tourny's through the day around that range. I may splurge and play some slightly bigger tournaments here and there. I will also play the odd satellite to the weekly 300 buy in and the monthly 1k buy in. I may also play a little 100NL if I get the chance, this is mainly to avoid me going 'rusty' so to speak. I don't enjoy ring games as much as tournaments but if i see a juicy table I will sit down.

FULL TILT: This is the most recent site I have joined, probably only a couple of months ago now I think about it. I have been slightly succesful there, depositing around $1500 on there (I think) over the course of about a month.


I'm looking at tournaments between 10 and 30 dollars on here. With such big fields, it can be a long time between wins so as a result I will genereally be on the more conservative side when buying in.

POKERSTARS: This is my 3rd website and currently my worst. After winning 2-3 180 man 20 dollar SNG's a while ago, I cashed most of my winnings out and just havent been able to win anything since.


I'll be playing mainly 20 dollar 180 man sng's. 500 is not enough to play these but I'm not gonna waste my time playing any lower. If i bust on stars, so be it. I just dont win there lol.

MANSION: This has been my most succesful website. After deciding to take advante of the websites 100k guarantee tournament I have been successful and won a large amount of money on here. Most of this I have taken out but I have allowed for some play in the future. The website has recently changed its structure and there are now 20,30 and 50 dollar rebuys 2-3 times a week and the bigger, 100 buy in tournaments are only held 2-3 times a week now. This is instead of running the the 100 buy in, 100k guarantee 7 times a week. Annoying as I have the roll to play the 100 buy in tournaments all the time on here. Oh well. Further, of all the winning froms this site, only half is mine as me and a friend go 50-50 in the buy in's (this was an agreement we made form the beginning).


Remember this is only half the bankroll as my friend (brendo) 'owns' the other half. I will only ever report half the total mansion bankroll so that I know exactly where I, personally, am at.

This is the figure that matters. If this is growing I am happy. Whilst I would love to have an even amount of money across all websites, If I don't I'm not too worried.

One thing that should be remembered is that I dont plan on taking any money out of my accounts any time soon. I want to increase the stakes I play and taking money out doesn't allow that. Beside I have nothing to spend my money on anyway.

Another fact is that because I play mainly high variance mtt's (lots of people) i may go long periods of time without a big win. This is something I need to work on because I HATE logging a losing day, let alone 7 of them in a row.

Overall I would say I will playing most of my poker on full tilt and pokeroom, both under the handle of "c-biz-kid"

I'll proabably play 3-5 times a week depending on how busy I am.

That's all I can think of for now, I think I have introduced where I am at pretty well. Now it's time to try win some money. I'll start tomorrow morning after a good nights sleep.

Finally, feel free to say or write something in this log, that way I don't feel like I'm talking to myself all the time.

Awesome. I look forward to reading it.

Loved your last blog. Believe or not, your experiences are very informative and educational for me, a poker player of only four months or so.


kid hustlr Jul 28, 2007 4:06am

Hideous day today. Standard mtt tournament day where I lost every important pot. I accumulated really well in a couple of tournaments only to be coolered later on.

I wont quote every bankroll on every site as it's to much effort. I'll just give a total figure. In summary of today though, every site I am down lol.


I'm still in a couple of tournaments on stars but I'll just assume I bust out of them lol.

This hand was an intersting one. I was shocked he led for a pot bet with two pair. I honestly thought he was bluffing. In hindsight, probably a bad move yet he could so easily be bluffing that ace. oh well.

When you post your total bankroll figure you should do a +/- from your original 13215....just a suggestion. After I finihsed reading I had to scroll back and all that extra mouse movement and the tedium of doing simple substraction was almost too much for me to handle.

BubbleBoy Jul 28, 2007 5:03pm

When you say you play on pokerroom, do you actually or just their network?

overall seems like you are doing a good job playing :smile:

kid hustlr Jul 28, 2007 11:14pm

It is but that is apart of the ongame network isnt it? I play on the site which has the BIg Deal once a week and the Grand tournament once a month.

I will post a positive or negative sign next to my BR from now on. As of now, it's a negative sign lol

kid hustlr Jul 29, 2007 3:50am

Played great today. Really Really well. Couldn't get any luck late in a 90 man 20 dollar sng on tilt (lost to KJ vs AT's or something to that nature).

Lost a huge pot on stars when AA got cracked by 88 with 4 left in a 180 man sng. Profitable day but I deserved much more. Im hurting right now because I really deserved that stars tournament. I made one terrible call with A9 suited 4 way but other than that I was just over the moon with my play.

This is a perfect example of how well I accumulated chips today without going to showdowns. Something I've been working on and I definately did it well today.

This is one of the worst call's I will make but that guy had re-stolen off me so often it was sick. Was shocked when he showed QQ.

STARS: 704
TILIT: 2372

TOTAL: 13159 (-34)

Don't feel like typing right now. Way too annoyed.

kid hustlr Jul 30, 2007 8:11am

The plan:

Will play the night tournaments tonight (50 dollar on pokeroom, 33 on stars, 24 on tilt, as well as some others) and then get up tomorrow morning and do another poker session then, Will probably play between 15 and 20 tournaments in the next 24 hours so I will post an update after I'm done.

Also quick congrat's to brendo who took down the brazilian 50 dollar daily on pokeroom for just over 3700.

Hopefully I can do something simlar soon!

kid hustlr Jul 31, 2007 2:48am

A terrible 24 hours of poker. Nothing went my way. Nothing. I just felt my little edges oves the field weren't justified over the last couple of days. Players limp shoving 66 after I raise with AK. Plays that are -EV in the long run yet worked for them on this occasion. Oh well. It happens. My next big win could be right around the corner.


STARS: 545

TOTAL: 12489 (-636)

Yuk, lots of tourny's no wins.

I'm ITM in a 24 dollar on full tilt as we speak but there is still along way to go.

Might take a break for a couple of days, I've played a lot of poker in the last 24 hours.
