That's basically what happened to me last year. It's very frustrating, but you just have to deal with it when playing many stakes.
I didn't play that much high stakes this month, I just ran badly overall.

The games are still good at peak hours, so elite players like OTB would probably win at like 6-7BB/100.
Definitely more than last year, because a lot of regs quit playing.

4.7 evBB this year, though the sample is not big enough to be accurate.

Re: 2016 PCG - MSNL and HSNL

My week off was really nice, and I am temporarily back at home in The Netherlands.

Though I started playing again, my volume has not been great. There's usually not more than one or two tables running, so I don't bother playing as much.
And I've been doing at least a coaching session a day, which takes up a lot of time.

The goal is to get back to playing 60k hands per month. I can do that by playing 50% of my volume at 500 Zoom, and the other 50% at high stakes.

I have also done a bit of work on my tournament game. I plan on playing some 700 - 2k tournaments, and I might play the 10k main event.


Just had a look at my graph from this year, and the 2015 PCG would almost have been completed at this rate.






Crying call

UTG ($13,094.70) 131bb
UTG+1 ($14,405.30) 144bb
CO Hero ($14,136.91) 141bb

Thanks.



Action sold for the main event, so better wish me some run good there!

500 Zoom has been dead in the morning for a couple of days. Now there is really nothing going on but one or two regular tables.
So I will probably add some 600NL and sign up on another site.

I would appreciate if some of you lurkers would actually post. Otherwise it is so boring to update the blog.

Truly incredible results for the current state of Stars. Any chance you can post a breakdown by stake? I assume it's mostly 5k given the bb/100.
