My results by session since quitting my job last September.

Most of the data is from 2/5/10 PLO and 1/2 PLO, but there are some 30/60 and 40/80 fixed limit 27-gane mix in there, 5/5 Big O and 5/10/25 PLO as well

Had a great start to February, then fell off a cliff to post my first losing month, but have recovered since then

It looks like the stock market :D

The drop near the150 point makes me feel like downswings happen to the best of us!

Keep grinding Anthony! I’m rooting for ya!

Yeah, the start of that downswing was a tourney monkey who chopped a $600 buyin for 100k was in my 1/2/5 PLO game, raised to $30 pre, another guy shoves to 150 all-in, I limp repot to $450 and tourney guy calls off half his stack
I had AAxx and flop comes 667 and I shove the rest in, he snaps and flips over 3456 cause you know, "premiums"

Then another session in 2/5/10 I flop nfd and top set against weaker flush draw and open ender, he rivers the straight

Then another where I get it in on the turn with top two plus nfd against 2nd nfd holding K944. He has ONE 4 in the deck he can hit, the other one flushes us both, he binks it.

After analysis about $800 of my losses during that downswing were tilt/bad play. The rest was just Poker Jeezus forsaking me

When this virus is under control in a year (hopefully) from now, I anticipate your graph will have the chance to skyrocket with all the pent up money from marginal players building up. Keep up your crushing ways!

A few things, based on several decades of tracking play.

Be sure to track different games separately. Different stakes and games will usually not play the same.
Find the level of play where you get the best value and try to stay there. Don't move up until you have a real dollar justification.
Jumping up and down in stakes is risky. You will tend (unconsciously) to conflate the different games together.

Edit: also make note of anything extraordinary (players, games or situation)

I’m happy this appears to be working out well for you, Anthony. I was concerned about the timing of your decision for a while, but am glad to see it paying off!

My tracking is done by game type, limits and location.

I actually started out playing mostly 2/5/10 at Hard Rock. There was no 1/2 lists then, the 1/2/5 game only ran Mondays at another location

Eventually 1/2 PLO started popping up at the Hard Rock. My understanding is some of the weaker players got it running to box out a couple of the tougher pros from the 2/5 game whose egos won't let them play lower.

I generally prefer to play the 1/2 as it is raked per pot and the players are generally more passive and weaker.

The 2/5/10 is time raked, so my nit-ass is stuck paying $14/hr ($7 every dealer down) to play even if I'm folding a lot, and the competition is much more aggressive.

I'm not worried about ego. I will play whichever game looks like a better lineup, whether that's 5/10/25 or 1/2

Excellent. There are some things there that you can take advantage of. Specifically big egos, soooooo easy to exploit
