beating the rake = being in profit in a raked game. if you make 1.5k but lose 2k in rake you are beating the rake.

25NL semi-shot went well today, 300 hands and managed to finish up. It seems I play much better poker when taking shots as I am really concentrating on the game.

Good night brew.

-30 buyins at NL 100 right now, -7 at NL 50 after never having more than a -4 swing before I moved up

I dropped like 16 buyins at 25NL on the first of this month...ran a little bad, played really bad

-30 BIs at any level is waay more than you can chalk up to variance. Move down man. Even if you're still rolled for NL 100, 30 BIs is a lot and you shouldn't take it lightly. Play 50NL (or even 25NL if you're really feeling down), fix up your leaks, and rebuild your confidence.

i don't think i could deal with the emotional side of losing 30 bi's or so or 10 for that matter

I could be wrong, but isn't -30bi essentially busto?
