Still alive and kicking

Oh hello strangers! It's been quite a long time since my last post. I was basically gave up on poker after I ended the staking deal 2 weeks after it started. My little new born has eczema and it was getting pretty bad. AT the time I couldn't get much hands in and wasn't really winning either. So I decided to quit the staking deal. I chose to spend a lot more time with the new born. I ended up $50. So 50% of it was for the stakers. It was not much at all but at least it was +EV for them. Too bad it could've been a lot more if I didn't end the deal. It was nice of them to let me off the contract on my own terms. Thank you guys!

After a month off and I was bored and played a few hands here and there and lost $5 from my $25 roll. So I had $20 left. I was thinking, what am I going to do with 20 bucks LOL. Maybe I should just enter a single table SNG and get it over with. Or just sit on a 25NL table. If I win I'll continue and if I lose, it will be the end of online poker FOREVER! As a bank roll nit, that didn't happen LOL. Well nothing really happened cause I never logon and played.

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to do something a lot of poker players have done before. Since my baby is feeling a lot better and growing out of eczema. I tried to run my $20 roll up and see how far I can get. I started to play some 4NL 6max tables. I know it's not a good bank roll management but that's the lowest stake there is at Merge Network :) So I played 4 tables with 5 buy-ins. To make the story short I tripled my bankroll with winnings and rakeback. I won about 10 buyins over 6K hands. Not too bad for a winrate ~15bb/100. It's a small sample size but I think I can maintain it from 10-15bb/100. The field is soft obviously it's only 4NL. All I can say is that I can never be below EV at at this stake. There are so many fish that are willing to get it in with 3rd pair :)

So this month, I'm going to continue on the same 4NL road. The goal is to play at least 15K hands with a similar winrate. With that being said, I should be one of the top winners in September at 4NL on Merge Network. Look out for the true micro grinder yo!
