January and early February

Well January was a pretty crappy month for me.  Here are my results overall:

18k hands NL50 +$70 - .38 ptbb/100
68k hands NL25 +$210 - .62ptbb/100
Tourneys/FPPs ~$400

So not a great month for me at all. I started off and was +$620 over 25k hands, then the bottom fell out.  I dropped steadily for the next 22k hands before finally starting back up.  Overall I played 72k hands last month and was breakeven, which is a fucking grind if you've never done it.  I was happy it has finally started turning around b/c I was starting to doubt myself somewhat, even though I knew I could beat nl25.  

Omfg this was the best trip ever.   I can't say that I remember much, but from what I do it was a blast.  Yankees is a solid dude and it was nice getting to hang out with him and was awesome getting to watch him win a LAPT seat.  I didn't get to play any tourneys (ok, I was too drunk and passed out all day to play) but I am hoping to make plans to go again next year.  The worst part about the trip is that my car broke down and us 4 guys had to ride back home with my parents (luckily they drove their Suburban to Tunica that weekend.)  I am somewhat happy that it will only cost $1700 to fix it and am waiting on a new/used motor.  

I'm back to work now which sucks.  I was off from Dec. 5-Feb. 3 and it's amazing how fast the time flies by.  The baby is growing well and mom is back to normal.  It's amazing how fast they grow.  

So now we're on to February.  I've started off Feb. great.  I won a seat to to the $1m on Stars Feb. 1 and that seemed to set it off.  It put me up enough to start playing NL50 and I actually ran good and am mixing up some nl100 too.  For whatever reason, I am more comfortable at nl100 then nl50 (prob b/c over 150k hands I'm still not beating nl50.)  So far I'm +$628 from cash and ~$180 from tourneys, so I can't complain atm.   I'm just hoping I can stay at nl50/nl100 and not have to cash out, it's amazing how much faster vpp are earned.  I'm needing to get 22k to be back on pace for keeping Supernova by July.  It's gonna be tough, but I can do it.  
That's all for now, I'll try to get an update more regularly from now on.  GL at the tables.
