It's Called "Variance". LOL!

My June has been a rollercoaster ride, to say the least. My SNG's have been so bad that I've been playing almost exclusively ring games. Mostly $25 NLHE. My ring variance has been wild. I'm not sure if it has been my emotions or just plain luck, but see for yourself:



I'll keep pluging away. I'm still learning a lot, though my tendancy has been to get myself into a hole early in the month and have to dig to recover. Still staying cool about it, though.

Stick's Update: Videos and Whatnot

It's been a while since last update. I've been really immersing myself in my poker education by reading and playing at Stars & UB. I've also made a couple of AVI videos of my less-than-stellar play on Stars for folks to critique:

(These links will eventually expire.)

When I get more confident of my game, I'm thinking of starting to play live more. We'll be heading to Reno for the BBQ, Blues, & Brews Festival in a couple of weeks, so I'll see how I do there in live games. Then I can check out the cardrooms in the Sacramento area.
