The variance to start the year has been pretty brutal.. I've had several final tables/final two tables with no close.. I ran awful in the 1k's/2k I played and am as of now very happy to be break even for the month :( Hopefully some of the high buyin variance turns around so I can get back to winning... Other than that my stable's struggling as well, so when it rains it pours...

I set some aggressive goals for 2012, and I can confidently say there aren't many I feel I'm doing an adequate job with! It has been an epic lazy fail start to the year... I've played 500 games, which is like 3 days worth of games in 15, I've played a decent amount of PLO but the lack of play in general sort of means I'm hitting the goal but only barely.. MTT's I have been on target with playing them on Sundays and keeping it just to that day, the gym was going really well prior to trying to help set Matty/Nick up with Pokerstars but as of now is a fail.. The same can be said about my diet and my spending as can be said about the gym... Fortunately I'm playing/running well when I do decide to play, and I am up a solid 10k before rakeback which could definitely be worse given my absent volume.... Shit's gonna pick up soon though, can't keep this pace going for long or SNE will just be suicide at the end of the year...

So far 2012 hasn't seen me hit SNG's very hard at all, so tomorrow I'm going to be looking to put in a big day and make up for some of the missing ground - I have no intention of starting this year slow and being forced into a mad push at the end of it like last year.. I've started a few new horses and have been doing quite a bit of coaching, so the time has been well spent it just hasn't been spent playing SNG's. PLO is off to a nice start, I intend to move up at the end of every month as long as I had a winning month, and move down/stay at the same limit if a month is breakeven/losing or I don't put in many hands depending on how I feel... I won't be moving up any faster than one jump per month because I feel my bankroll may take me into games where I really don't have an edge if I'm not very controlled with the limits.. That being said I'm up close to 15 buyins or so over the last week (obv sample size), so hopefully my run good continues there... MTT's also went well this past Sunday, had a deep run in both the mill and the Sunday 500.. The Sunday 500 saw me reship 20bb's from the SB vs a hj open from a reasonably laggy player with J9s - I thought the spot was good because I hadn't really been active at all, he looked me up with AT which was w.e. and he held.. Oh well better luck next time, good luck to all of you!
