You can probably tell from the lack of posting that its not been a wonderful month of poker, ending up down $750. The first few days started ok but then I seemed to lose my way.. my A-game didn't show up very much and when it did I tended to run into the top of villains' ranges which induced some variance tilt and some pretty horrible play.

On a more positive note I made my first live final table in what seems like ages in one of the OfficePoker events picking up a few league points but no $$. Best hand of the day was being priced into a call when pretty short in the BB with J2c after a small button raise and SB call. SB was short too and shoved on the 242 flop. I obviously called and turned quads :)

I'm starting with a new coach tonight - a Full Tilt FR reg from 2+2 who I hope can help get me back on track.

EDIT: Coaching session went well. Clawed back $150 before the month ended :) This hand helped:
