Day 22: Running With The Red Queen

Well, in our country," said Alice, still panting a little, "you'd generally get to somewhere else — if you ran very fast for a long time, as we've been doing."

"A slow sort of country!" said the Queen. "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"
~ Alice Through the Looking-Glass, Chapter 2, by Lewis Carroll
So this is the beginning of Week 4 and, like Alice, I've pretty much been running violently in place. My live and online bankrolls have seesawed up and down, mostly in opposite directions from each other. Lately, things have been going great in live games, but I gave back the profit in my online account (all in about 24 hours of brutally bad cardage). Go figure.

If there's good news in this story, it's this: I've been putting a lot more money in play these three weeks than I ever have before, and I'm essentially breaking even so far ~ including covering my poker-related expenses.

Still, I guess it's time to start running twice as fast.

Live bankroll: 99.7%
Online bankroll: 100%

How many online hands are you playing?

Also do you belong to any of the coaching sites?
