Slow start to Feb

I've put in a couple hours but haven't really gotten far. Dropped a fair few BBs on the $2/4 tables, but won a bit on $3/6 and $1/2 for an overall loss of $50 on the tables according to PT3. It's just missing those one or two big pots that makes all the difference, although my W$SD stat is still a bit down from normal so far this month. Small sample though so should improve with any luck.

The bankroll has moved up slightly, mainly due to rakeback. My pokertracker isn't quite 100% accurate as it missed a few hands right at the start of the month when it wasn't picking up my bodog $4/8 table correctly for some reason.

Table selection has been a bit of a struggle at the beginning of the month, with a lot of the larger stakes tables (large for me) way too tight to be worthwhile playing on, and relatively few juicy smaller ones running as well. Although i've notice that when it rains, it pours, and when i've found a juicy table it has had three or four huge fish on it even, rather than just one or two.

I might get in a decent session on the tables on Thursday, although it will be in the off peak time so table selection may again be a challenge.

Current bankroll: $23,350
February time played: 3h
February hands played: 738
February profit / (loss): $50

call me pedantic but... you are still referring to January instead of February? :)

Hey mate, what proportion of your net is coming from rakeback? I ask because mine is a fairly solid majority, which seems to argue fairly firmly towards moving up in limits where you pay more absolute rake, but less relative rake.

i'd say about 70% is RB .. maybe even more on the high raking sites at a guess.

i think that's always going to be the way with limit .. you're going to rakeback easily over 1bb/100 at low stakes

hmmm think i should be paying more attention to bonuses..

Yeah, that sounds about right. See my latest post on rake and rakeback for some thoughts.

United, you should definitely look into rakeback if you don't have it. It's not quite so important for a tourney player, but for fixed limit it's absolutely essential.
