Still here, nothing new to report

It's been a while. I'm still here, still playing occasionally, still running like a warmed up turd.

It's been a remarkable run. I've played 29 months of online poker now, and the last three months have each been worse than any month prior to those three. And two of those three were three times as bad as any previous. The net result is I have lost almost exactly 50% of my bankroll in three months. The total losses in BB terms are probably in the vicinity of 1000, and bonuses and rakeback are not remotely close to covering it.

I took good advice, taking a break and slowing down my play only to come back to this sort of shit:

My graph now looks like this:

As you can see, there's really been no let up. The situation now is that I cannot afford to play the stakes that would recover the losses in anything resembling a reasonable time. As a result, I am now essentially a casual player only. I'll still try to get to the casino occasionally, as the 10/20 there is juicy and I can but hope my turd ball does not extend to the actual felt.

That hand on the video was unbelievable - you simply cannot factor in stuff like that. Anyway, i think your advice was good - slow it down and you will come back even stronger!

When are we going to see the return of the Blindman?

Good question. I'll start blogging again when the downswing has shown some signs of turning around. I'm down another $k since that last graph, so it won't be any time soon!
