The Moon went dark. Lions laid down with sheep. The heavens opened and .. Oh wait, that's another day. This is the day the words 1918 lost there sting. Congrats to the Red Sox! It feels so good!
On another note: If you can't beat them join them. Enjoy Al.

I doubled up again at 2/4 tonight. I am now moving up to 3/6 since my bankroll can support it. I have some trepidation since I have heard mixed stories. Some people say it is HARDER and other say it is the same. I shall see. I think on this level I really need to take a deep look at my game because the consensus for the next level is that it is ALOT harder. It would be nice to have a Poker Daddy who would help me find my leaks and talk strategy with me. *sigh*. I actually am not sure it would do me any good at this point. I need to look into myself and find the energy and drive to reach the next level of play.
It is somewhat hard to do this when you keep doing well at each level. I have far too few months of experience playing and too much short term success for my own good. I do take the game seriously and desire to always make the right moves. I need to improve on the work aspect of my game. Hand review. Really calculating pot odds instead of saying "Looks about right". Things like that. I hate to think how much money I am leaving on the tables with my average play.
Anyway I am moving up. I seem to have settled on 4.5+ BB/100 hands for my win rate. I have heard this is a good rate. I have 4.89 in 2700+ hands of 2/4 and 1000 hand of 1/2 short. My rate for 1/2 is only 2.22. The .50/1 rate capped out at 1.42! In the beginning I had some very inflated rates. I was making something like 15 BB/100. Wish it could stay like that! I am also making welfare like mad money now! I take in a whole 3 bucks an hour! I hope that improves! I have 265 hours of play under my belt so far (actually a little more since I only bought PT last month), and a nice 56% winning session rate! Barely breaking even! In 2/4 I have had 68% winning sessions which is a little better. We will see what improvements I make to swim with the 3/6 fishies.
**** UPDATE: Just finished my first 3/6 session. I like it. People fold more to pre-flop raises which is fine with me. I won $72 and my BB/100 was 18! I love going up to a new level! That BB/100 looks sweet for a few weeks!
