2011 H1 in review

Posted: June 25, 2011 in Uncategorized

With three £500+ losing nights out of the last four sessions played, the first half of 2011 hasn’t treated me well at all. It looked like a slow start to the year with barely a grand profit for the first four months, but then May/June struck my bankroll like a hammer, and I’m now firmly into the red. For the first time in my ‘career’ I’m set for a losing year, and right now my lifetime profit is reset back to start of 2010 levels.

The worst part of the recent downswing is that there are really hardly any worthwhile lessons learned. With one or two notable exceptions I’ve definitely run under expectation for the last 1000 hands or so, however at least one of the big losing sessions was completely my own fault – taking a winning loose/aggressive approach that works well at one venue and trying to apply it to another completely unsuitable situation.

Oh well, hopefully the mild catharsis of blogging my current poker misery will allow me to shake this funk and bank a decent win. A week or two away from the game may be just what’s required to reinvigorate my previous love for the game.
