Gus, how many tables do you play? Just surpised 53k is your record for playing professionally. Nice month man!

-Been working the regular job lots now. Poker was way down in volume. Up like 600 for 15000 hands 50nl including RB.

and did you see they have a June instant $2400 bonus that doesnt have to be cleared.... same $/FPP rate as the 4K bonus

I dont even know when im doing this challenge I dont know if ill get any other side action or not ..... if I do I could be willing to sell some or sell some of the $1500 main side bet

There is also a new 800$ milestone bonus for supernova for 50k fpp also same rate and also no clearance needed.

between 6-10, average is probably 6-7

Its not because youre playing 'professionnaly' that you need to play 40h a week. I just cant do it myself...Plus I just finished university. 30h a week is maxing my capacity most of the time. Average is probaly 25 but this summer I want to play more... we'll see how that goes

Down 1k and change for the month; too lazy to check OPR but if I had to guess i'd be down somewhere between 1200-1800 for the month over medium volume. I've been cutting back the amount of tables i'm playing but my ABI was probably higher than normal so it's not surprising that variance bitchslapped me.

Had two chances to turn my month into something good, ended up losing flips (NFD+Overcard vs Overpair on the flop, AK vs QQ preflop) for something like 30% and 50% of the chips in play to finish 5th and 7th respectively in donkaments where first was something like 6k in one and 10k in the other.

I ran good in March/April for two of my four best months ever though so I can't really complain.

I ran well below expectation this month (probably to the tune of about 3k) due to losing more key hands than I won but it wasn't anywhere near as bad as that five month breakeven stretch I had a while back so i'll cope.

Overall I think I played my B game a lot this month, partially because I wasn't fully focused and partially due to the disillusionment that results when your sick hot upswing ends and you start running below average. When focusing on 1-tabling the $163s and Brawl and stuff though I was very happy with my play despite the lack of a score which is a good thing since i'm going to be doing a lot of 1-tabling in June at the WSOP

+9K at 2/4 NL, running far above EV in all-in situations for once. Only 27K hands or so. This is a good result at 2/4, but it's still bugging me. I was running good and was still only able to get a win rate that some people have been able to maintain for hundreds of thousands of hands. I'm still improving my game, but I find it difficult to really concentrate on the game.
