Getting Better-October Review

Alright, October is officially in the books! The month went by super fast for me and was action packed due to Thanksgiving, my birthday, Team Pro Online week, YouTube video making (check out my channel for multiple HOTW vids as well as a strat video ft. Nanonoko), PSO coaching, as well as the usual off-table activities that are on my schedule. It ended up being a pretty low volume month at the tables for me...not exactly what I was intending or hoping for but all things considered I'm pleased with my effort. I also spent a ton of hours away from the tables working to improve my game and especially in that department, I'm very pleased with the progress that I made in October.

As far as improving my game goes, I'm mainly just trying to miss less spots that come up regularly-something that can be easy to do when you're playing a lot of tables. Also, I'm more focused on trying to determine the best play for my overall range in a given spot rather than just playing each hand in a vacuum-unless I'm up against a weaker or obviously exploitable player. All in all, I still want to keep getting better and I think it's important even for winning players to keep your mind sharp by trying to continually improve your game.
 Alright, here's the breakdown for October:

I ended up running pretty well (obviously well in terms of EV, although I could post a dozen hands where I was set under set etc.) so I'll take that, especially over a small sample size. You'll notice most of my volume was just at 100nl in October, where I posted what I would say is a largely unsustainable winrate of 5.64 bb/100.


1,894 table winnings
439    FPP value

$2,333 USD

Add in a bit of salary/coaching and exchange and I banked around $3,300 CAD in October. Obviously that 100K goal is looking pretty far off at this point lol but I'm going to try and get as close as I can by the end of the year!

I'm expecting November to be a relatively high volume month for me as I'm determined to log more hours at the tables and my schedule is crystal clear, unlike October. The Micro Millions is coming up and once again I'm going to try and make a run for the top of the leaderboard...I always enjoy the challenge and even though it can be very gruelling after a few days, I still find it fun. Also, I will be doing some more last longer promotions for my followers (with a bit of a twist this time) so stay tuned for that! I can tell you that there will be more MM Main Event tickets up for grabs and might I remind you that one of my ticket winners last time cashed in the ME for around $4k lol. As mentioned, details coming soon...

I suited up (or suited down?) as Clark Kent last night for Halloween and headed downtown with my girlfriend and friends to celebrate Halloween. I hadn't been out to a club for the longest time and honestly, I really don't feel like I'm missing much. I'm not sure how single frosty used to put up with the crowds, the lines, the noise but I guess he was more of a campus bar type guy anyways. Nonetheless, I'm a big fan of costume parties no matter where they're at and managed to have a good time throwing some shapes and then knocked back a few after seeing Wonder Woman cheating on me with Spiderman on the dance floor. My actual gf was dressed as a boxer and at one point in the night she ran into some dude that was also dressed as a boxer and a mock fight broke out. People went crazy for it and started pulling out their phones to film it...I'm not really sure why everyone was so excited but they were. She was also forced to fist-pump everyone that made eye contact with her as they went by-I guess that's the price you pay when you have sweet boxing gloves as part of your costume.

Alright, that's all for now...enjoy the rest of the weekend and I'll catch some of you guys/gals in the Team Online Freeroll tomorrow.

gl at the tables!
