XXXX PLO 50- PLO1000 + SNE in 2011 XXXX

Some of you may have followed my last goal which was to earn 5k at plo50 in 100k hands so that I could move up to plo100. This went so well that i actually went from PLO50 - PLO200 in a three week period. ( earning about 9k in that 100k hand period.

Anyway now that i have started playing plo200 I have realised how quickly I can accumulate vpps and I reckon it would be relatively easy to get sne in 2011... ( I have already earnt 74k vpp in the 10 days I have played plo200).

Anyway here are my goals;
1) earn 10k at plo200 before x mas and take shots at plo400.
2) earn 100k vpp in jan (this is going to be hard as I have exams) but if I can get off to a good start it will make sne much easier.
3) Move up gradually by taking 50 bi shots to PLO1k by end of 2011.



On a side note I'm also in a small hu prop bet over 5k hands where winner takes profit+ 250 side bet. I am winning this by 3 bi and we are 1500 hands in so I am hoping to take this down too.

Dunno, but I get about 1k VPP an hour 20 tabling, and I play around 1k hands an hour so I guess about 1VPP/hand?

First update:

Here are the first 3 days since I set this goal. Today's session started really badly with me losing a 1.2k pot with top 2 + flush draw vs 2 bare flush draws and the turn completed the flush. Anyway the rest of the session went ok appart from one bluff that cost me $500.

Good session. I felt that I played well, and ran pretty good.... Ill post some hands later on when i figure out how to import them from my pokertracker database. (anyone know? I can find the hand histories, but it wont give me the option to copy them...

Also, if anyone wants to watch some sick low stakes gambling then search table hyperion III... 6 of us have a prop bet where we have to play 100% of hands to a flop. $5 max buy in and there are 2 stacks of $250 dollars lol...

Re: XXXX PLO 50- PLO1000 + SNE in 2011 XXXX

Sorry for not updating in a while. I have been pretty steaming at how badly I have run over the last 20k hands- pretty much losing all my profit. Anyway I think I am back on track now for my goal next year, and have managed to get back to my A-game.

Basically i played a really long session of 1/2 about a week ago in which i ran really bad, but still managed to reign my losses in at about 2k (being $6k down at one point). I was playing very well and decided it was time to take a shot at 2/4 (as I have table limits it took 24 hours to enable 2/4 tables). In this time I played another session at 1/2 and lost another 1k or so playing well.

Anyway judgement day comes and im feeling good about my play recently. Load up 6 2/4 tables a couple of them deep and start off quite well winning a couple of bi's from some really bad fish pretty much drawing dead when i got them in.

Anyway the graph tells the rest of the story...

I still dont know how to post hand histories but heres the biggest pot of my life ...



All in on the flop, pot was about $170 preflop.


I took a shot at 2/4 the other day after I felt really confident in my game. The results were absolutely terrible.



I have never run so badly in my 1m + lifetime hands. I won maybe 2/25 standard all ins without being crushed in any of them. And the ones i lost all happened to be on my deep tables.

Anyway now looking forward to next year. Hopefully just going to play a few hundred k hands at 1/2 in the first couple of months of 2011 to regain confidence before i take another shot at 2/4 with a 150+ bi bank roll.
