It's nearly the end of June - halfway through the year. My goal of finishing 2012 with a double-digit hourly win-rate at $1/2 needs some work . . . The results thus far:
I started out the year in a $1,000+ hole a mere two weeks into January. I tried to tighten up my game and plug some leaks, and pulled back to even shortly thereafter. Still, I'm marginally better than a break even player, which is disappointing.
In addition to cash, I've played a bunch of tournaments thus far this year, mainly at Del Park. While I haven't kept track of the results, I've probably played at least ten and cashed three. All in all, while I feel like my MTT game is improving, I think my time would be better spent grinding cash.
So . . . . for the second half of the year, the plan is to stick more to cash games. I'm aiming for 250+ hours total for 2012, and still shooting for $10 to $14 hourly.
I'll be in Vegas for 9 days starting Friday evening. In addition to much general debauchery (pool, black jack, VP, adult beverages, etc.), I'll be grinding the $1/2 games at MGM and Planet Hollywood in effort to pad the stats . . . I may also mix in a bit of $1/3 at Aria, which will be home base for the trip.
