Powering Through

Powering through reminds me of how awesome college was. Everyone had to "power through" the first awful tasting beer on a Saturday night after a long day of drinking on Friday. These last few days have been me powering through these super turbos. I have tried my best to keep my chin up after the brutal downswing and just put in volume. Although I have been making a conscious effort to think about every decision, it hasn't been the easiest thing to do being like 15k down.

I have been doing quite a lot of non-poker things, which has helped keep me sane. One of my friends got some sweet lights in his backyard, and we have been playing 5 on 5 football (soccer) almost everyday, starting sometimes late at night. I went out drinking last night with friends, and all these distractions has really helped me get my mind back on track. I am really determined to complete this challenge.

Here are my results from the last 4 days

Day 18: +1422, 0.9 hours
Day 19: -2149, 7.1 hours
Day 20: +730, 2.2 hours
Day 21: +3060, 6.1 hours

Plus I made around 850 in rakeback, so I'm at around +4000 for the last 4 days, running at EV. Today is the first day where I felt like I played really solidly throughout, and the red line reflected that.

Graph for the last 4 days:

I'm 5th in the leaderboard for the month, and pretty close to 2nd. I think a realistic goal is to shoot for 2nd.

The number of countries is up to 27 now... only 3 more to go until there is a winner in the blog contest!

Overall Profit after day 21: 15438
