February Results

Profit: +$4734
Rakeback: +140
Games: 747
Hours: 73

Hourly: 66.77 / hr
Per Game: 6.52 / game

This month had a great ROI & hourly rate, but lower than desired volume. I'm very confident in my game and my ability to hang with the good 180-man regs. I'm even more proud though, of the developments I've made in my mental game. I don't think I've tilted once this entire month. If you look at my graph for this year, it's almost a straight line. Some people talk of running good, or running bad, but I just need to keep running.

Last bit of news, Chip210 and I will be coaching a few students in the Rainman School of Poker. My initial plan is to feed them raw meat until they develop a taste for it. After that, they're expected to eat what they kill. We choppin' necks!

Inspiration II

"True nobility isn't about being better than someone else. It's about being better than you used to be."
-- Wayne Dyer

I was chatting earlier today with chip210 today, and ended up dropping some knowledge on him. Figured it would be useful to share all around and create a sequel to my first "Inspiration" post. That post helped get me into the Rainman School of Poker. This post will be a lil more involved than the 1st one, but also richer. If you are a lifetard, do not waste your time watching these.

Knuckle Up

Things are moving really fast these days. Here are my results YTD. Over a small sample size, I can now say I am confident with $12 180-mans. The ROI is respectable, and the graph relatively low-variance. I've been 12-tabling so far to learn the games, but will now ramp back up to 18-tabling so I can achieve industrial strength. $36 180-mans have been kicking my butt, but over a negligible sample size. I have noticed some fear creep into me during lategame $36s. That is totally unlike me, so I will do my best to bludgeon it out of my brain.

If I really want to achieve my near-term goals, these results will not cut it. It truly is insanity to repeat the same things over and expect different results. The key concept in economics is opportunity cost; life is made up of continual tradeoffs. I only average an hour of tv / day, but I can definitely let that go. If anything is newsworthy enough, I'll hear about it eventually. I also apologize in advance to friends / family for temporarily neglecting them. It can be really difficult communicating different mindsets. I wish more people in my family were entrepreneurial; would make things 10X easier.

I've also helped out a fellow student by reviewing some of his HHs. After just a session or two, his mindset has completely turned around, along with his results. They say you can lead a horse to water, but I will drag his ass into the damn lake. More news to come.

Finally, I'd like to leave you with some inspirational quotes. Charlie Munger is Warren Buffett's right-hand man, and the wisest person I know of. The second quote is one of my favorites. If you are going to bitch about anything, bitch about yourself. Really learn to hate your own bad habits, and then destroy them.

"The safest way to get what you want is to deserve what you want."
-- Charlie Munger

"Whenever you think that some situation or some person is ruining your life, it's actually you who are ruining your life. It's such a simple idea. Feeling like a victim is a perfectly disastrous way to make go through life. If you just take the attitude that however bad it is in anyway, it’s always your fault and you just fix it as best you can – the so-called "iron prescription" – I think that really works."
-- Charlie Munger

"I will eat variance and shit $$."

Random Happenstance

Saturday, I went to grab lunch at Red and Green Brazilian Steakhouse. I'm waiting around for my friends when I see this black dude walk up the stairs. He looks eerily familiar, and I stare him down for a second before walking up to him and introducing myself. Turns out, it's Chef Robert Owens from 2M2MM.

He lives in the ATL area, so we chatted a bit and I got his contact info. Oddly enough, I was researching getting a personal chef just a week ago. It'd be nice to save time getting food and avoid eating all the crap that I normally do. However I'm not baller enough to justify it...yet. Time to lunch and grind all day. GL all!

wbmustang: Oh shit really lol how much he charge that nigga better sing a song everyday

I'm back, fools! Last month left me a lil worn out and sleep-deprived, so I ended up not playing poker for 4 entire days. Tonight I was super-focused and alert, resulting in 2 1sts, and 2 3rds as well as a new daily record. I can almost taste that propbet victory from chip210. This weekend should be good. Here's a lil something dedicated to all the fish that love to berate me. Don't give up on me guys, I promise someday I'll learn to play!
