March 2019 Recap

January 2019 Recap

In January I had to change my goal for the month rather soon, as Pokerstars started a promotion which added $5 and $25 Spin & Goes.

October 2018 Recap

October was a single big struggle again. I had to change the goal from moving up, towards fighting to not go down a limit rather early in the month.
