Well since CTH decided to do a blog about playing online and the things he is learning from actually having a good sized bankroll I decided that maybe it would be fun to record some things of my own.
In case you didnt already know I decided to start my own little Tuna Steak operation. I started an account called DonkDown on Pokerstars. I tossed 225$ on the account in order to play some MTT`s and SNG after paying off a couple of people I owed some money on PS to the account was ready to go with 175$. CTH knows the password and can sometimes be found playing on it. I did this in part to motivate myself to play my best poker. I consistanly found myself playing like a total donkey after I cashed all my money off the internet to go play the juicy live games In montreal.
Poker is not legal in Montreal and after a rash of hold ups by gangs and eventually the police raided a well known club we were left without any poker whatsoever unless I wanted to drive 1 hr plus across the tough to get through border (they dont like us canucks going to the Indian casino in NY) so we get hassled a lot to say the least.
In live play I had a nice 10K+ BR that I used to play my regular games with. I was a consistent winner and did very well over 6 months or so that I found live play. But after the games went south I spent the money and had fun, I have a good job so anytime I want to start a new bankroll I just make a deposit.
I do play on Party and UB but I would rather not divulge my information there. Because this blog is about DONKDOWN and not my personal healthy roll. No one knows my info there not even my boyfriend CTH
So now with a goal set in my mind I have the carrot in front of me and I am running to catch it. As long as I continue to run forwards I hope to never catch the carrot I want to keep going further.
The account has started well, in the first week of the account I had 2 final tables and 6 cashes, nothing that big but I did get 170$ or so for that. I made it deep in the Omaha jala slot tourney but busted in the last 25 Macon did most of it. I made the final table of a 7 card stud event too. I got there very short stacked and managed to hold onto 5th I think.
I promised myself not to play cash games but that didnt last long. I jumped into the .50-1$ short handed and did well. Since last week I have killed the pokerstars short handed the players a just so bad. So starting the 3rd week DonkDown is just under 1K so I think I will get it to 1.5K by then end of this month and be able to hit 3-6 in mid December.
I will keep updates about my progress and daily sessions albeit between my real accounts I play only around 200 hands or so on DonkDown.
BTW if you see me at the tables feel free to come take some money off me I know that slim was able to do that quite well!!!!!! L
