Frustratingly even

Found a superb fish on a $4/8 table last night with a $400 stack. He'd see about 70% of flops and showdown about 60%, winning all of about 30% of those.

Unfortunately for me, those 30% winnings were mainly against me, where he cracked my AA, KK and JJ ... with the JJ particularly nasty on a J92r flop. Runner, runners and 2 outers were the order of the day. Add to that and within half an hour i've lost over $200 to him alone and he's managed to lose his entire stack of $400 plus my $200 to the other guys at the table.

A couple of the other fish did donate quite a lot to me and i'd started the session with a couple wins, so I somehow managed to end the session even. A couple of those suckouts had me ready to put my fist through the monitor half way through the session though. Funny thing is, it doesn't really impact the way I play the cards - and if it did i'd be quitting the session.

I've earnt some decent rakeback, but probably wont be paid till next month, so this is still looking like a losing month overall.

Current bankroll: $20,000
September time played: 12h
September profit / (loss): ($350)

yes, you strike me as the kind of person that doesnt let tilt affext your play, just by the way you organise your blog and the comments you make.

its a good mindset which you should consider for no limit where tilt kills many otherwsie good players bankroll? no tilt@nl=big winner.

Haven't really tried NL cash yet. I was close to giving it a try when I was playing more hours.

If i wasn't winning at fixed limit, and wasn't so lazy, i'd probably give it a go.
