August was the best month since I turned 'pro'.My grand total profit, was $5,745.96, assuming I don't cash in the VIP Invitational later.I cleared ~$1200 on rakeback, ~$1000 in bonus money, ~$1000 worth of ARPs, and I guess I cleared the rest at the tables (~$2500), although my PT data shows a different result because I played a few sessions where I was staked, and either shipped a portion of my winnigs away, or had some money shipped to me to cover the losses, etc.However, PT shows overall, a winrate of 0.96 BB/100, which I'm extremely happy with. If I could run at that rate forever, I'd be happy. :)Also, I played significantly less than I wanted to, mainly because my month was interupted for about 5 days or so because of a trip I took. I only played 22,252 hands, and my goal was 30,000. According to PT, I was at the tables for 118.72 hours, meaning my hourly rate was $48.40. If I could force myself to work 40 hrs/week, I'd be rich, loool.Either way, I'm super happy with my results, as my previously best month was only $4600ish.Also, I'll prolly win the VIP Invitational tonight for $1500 more :-P******************************Goals for September are simple.25-30k hands, I'm going to try to split it between 3/6 and 5/10 as my BR allows (I'm a bit short for 5/10 right now), and perhaps some more well-timed shots at 10/20. This will all vary depending on how good the tables are at each limit, naturally, as I feel the strongest part of my game is table selection.I'm looking to have a $5,000+ month again, and I don't see why that shouldn't be possible.On the non-poker front, I want to cut down my useless spending, sorta. I'm not going to be taking any trips or anything anymore, as my gf is back in school. I'm gonna try to stay away from the fast food, etc. I would like to make one purchase when possible. I need a video game system, for tilt control purposes. I think Madden would be a good way to get out some aggression when I feel tilt coming, and also, I want to get out from laptop more often. I also need to read my new poker books, Winning In Tough Hold'Em Games, which is supposed to be amazing for SH LHE, and Ace on the River, which should hopefully help me with the mental aspects of poker.Anyways, as always, gl all.[edit - I just remembered, I have to wait for today's rakeback to be updated, so I'll add in the extra $30 or so when it gets updated tomorrow]
LETS GO PITTSBURGH
Zach is right about pretty much everything.
