Ty mate, have actually been failing superhard at playing off peak. Sleep schedule is totally f*cked, have only slept an hour or three right now though so if I manage to stay awake untill tonight I might be able to reg off peak again starting tomorrow. Hope it works because I really miss the morning schedule

Re: LOLCh1p/One_Time184: The hopefully long road to reaching my full potential as an MTT pro

regarding internet problems:
have a 3-way

1. your standard wifi connection
2. turn your mobile phone into a router (hotspot/tethering)
3. buy a 10€ a month wifi stick for usb

with that setup you shouldn't ever miss more than 1 minute of play ever. You can even use 2 connections at the same time since the USB internet will not run over your standard connection. So if you're playing and get some hickups, plugin that USB, start up your mobile connection and relax.
Also great if you want to play some small games on the road etc.

Again want to make a more thoughtful post at some point soon but I ran well enough again today to just drop a lobby so gonna do that instead



Was a fun FT, some difficult spots wrt ICM and bounties and I think I learned quite a bit by playing it and discussing the hands with #TFTG straight after. Also had my third coaching sesh yesterday and it feels good to know I'm soaking up information from all over the place. Feel like I've learned a ton already this year but also because of that I'm realizing how much there is to improve on still. Should try to keep my focus on my tables a bit more tomorrow, skype banter is just so hard to ignore haha.

Am pretty grateful to have a decent score in back to back sessions bc besides the $$$ it helps a ton with motivation to study/grind and have fun while doing it rather than just clicking buttons in a generic kind of way

Spoiler:


Thanks for reading and gl! Promise I will make a post with some more content soon Have been feeling very insecure about my game (still do, but binking helps) and was struggling with every session before these last two lobbies, so not trying to ignore that now and definitely remaining critical towards myself. Anyways, later!

-----------------------------------------------------

So, February is finished and it was a month in two parts for me. First half of the month I had like zero confidence in my game and was running pretty bad as well, not the best combination to turn into a profit. I did feel like for the most part I was putting in solid work so that was a positive. Yet every grind was sort of the same story, starting fresh and happy to put in a solid session but midway through just hating life and wanting to be done with it. Mostly getting tilted at myself for making mistakes, which is affecting me way more than running bad in general; though was getting irritated at continuously losing big flips as well (lol at using 'continuously' for half of a short month, I know ). My last truly good month online was July last year so I guess that really just started eating at me. Makes me gain so much respect for guys who run way worse and play way better than me, for them it must be so much tougher and I really need to put in some work towards a better mental game if I'm gonna aim for bigger things in the future.

Midway through the month I started sunrunning a bit and managed to get some nice scores. Got a bit of a confidence boost out of that bc even though the scores in itself were mostly a result of running good in late game, I also had a good ammount of coaching this month, did work off the tables (though not enough for sure) and made a solid effort to try and focus more when playing. I hope I can continue this trend into next month and will set some new monthly goals to help me with this.
------------------------------------------------------


February goals:


* Mark at least 5 hands every day and review/discuss them in depth

Marked/discussed/reviewed a lot of hands but def didn't review 5/day in depth so can't cross this off unfortunately. Never used to mark hands at all so sometimes I literally forget to do it. Hope to do better this month


* One full HH review every 2 days (at least 14 total for the month)

Didn't do 14 but reviewed between 5 and 10 myself, had a review with TFTG (shoutout) and did some solid in depth reviews with my coach (also shoutout) so not too unhappy about this


* Grind 650+ MTT's, the majority of them off peak

Didn't get there, but started mostly 6-tabling this month and am gonna continue to do this for at least another month to put the emphasis on focus and improving. Feels like the best approach for me, at least for now. Failed hard at grinding off peak though due to a constantly messed up sleep schedule


* ICMize at least 30 spots

Totally did this


* Watch 10+ RIO videos

Lol, think I watched like 50. A lot of them passively though but still attentively watched way more than 10


* Keep a close look on abi/turbo ratio wrt bankroll


Yes


* Make a real effort to play as close to A-game as possible every sesh

Made a real effort often, strayed away from optimal focus midsesh also pretty often, played A-game sometimes; not nearly enough. Starting to think I just refuse to call something 'A-game' bc I always feel I could do better. In general I think it's just a projection of how I would want to see myself playing vs how mediocre I still am at this game in reality. Will try to rate this next month by seeing how much effort I put in studying and how much focus I can maintain during sessions. Let's not cross this off I guess


* No browsing during poker

Better but far from perfect


* Review at least 3 full HH's with someone else

Yes!


* Work out a mutually beneficial coaching deal with who I have been talking to

Yes!


* Try to find stuff I really want to do outside of poker, not just go out on random benders




* Look further into moving to Malta

Kind of, going on a small trip with my mom to check some stuff out, leaving this Saturday so that will be interesting


* Do not post a SINGLE hand anywhere for whining purposes only

Fail, way less than last month for sure though. It's just too easy to copy/paste a beat in skype


* Do not look at EV-line during sessions

Mostly didn't do this, but frequently loaded it while playing out the last few tables


* Be more positive about stuff in general

Not sure how to evaluate this, I guess it's just way too general of a goal and something you can't just do in a month, rather something you have to always keep in mind


* Use the headspace app to meditate a little pre-session


Did this! Far from every session though




Results


EV-graph




Quite unhappy with the EV-line again. My EV on partypoker has been terrible this year and on Stars it's somewhat decent at 7+. I really want to push it to 8+ (at least) consistently, of course there will always be sample size issues but will evaluate hours studied/focus when played again rather than the actual line. If I feel I played well and the yellow line doesn't agree I won't let it bother me. Definitely not a coincidence that it looks crappier in the first half though I think


Sharkscope




Nice to have a solid positive month with the somewhat low volume. Trying not to focus too much on results atm but honestly it's waaay more fun to grind tournaments if you have some stacks going and get to post some lobbies once in a while

-------------------------------------------------

Will think about goals for March and post them very soon, also should put in some more effort with updating the thread. Feel it's getting kinda boring without much content at all so sorry guys

Anyways, GL all this month and see you at the tables
