Tilt is something that throughout my poker career I have had an extremely strong handle on, so why is it that in recent months, where my game/mental game should be at their peak, I'm struggling more than ever? Well, I'm fairly confident that the culprit is the sliding buyin scale I have relative to other players... Its very frustrating to look at my results below $299 and see that I'm up a really hefty amount of money over the last month or two, and see that I'm running slightly above ev for a few bb's.... And then to look at the same results in 300-2k's and see that for every big blind I've won, I'm a BB below ev... Its just not the same thing as grinding nothing but $15 and $30 sng's when my lowest buyin can be $30 and my highest in the same day can be $2000.
With Christmas approaching, high stakes getting tougher with regs finishing their respective SNE quests, and my sanity being valuable - I think I'll be on hiatus in high stakes games until January...
VPP total - 858,000
Coaching - Right where I'm comfortable with it being given I still need about 140,000 VPP's
Staking - Going very well, a lot of my horses are killing it :)
