Pfft, tl;dr

j/k gl with this. I liked your tips in the beginning. I think you'll be able to get SNE because I'd never want to bet AGAINST jdawg on grinding it up.

Yeaaaa, I'm kinda messed up lol, my dad's a huge Bears fan and I've been a lifetime Packer fan. Also been a huge Hawks fan my entire life, I played travel hockey for the Rockford Roadrunners for 5-6 yrs and played hockey for a total of 8 years so hockey has always been a big part of my life. I quit playing in high school after tearing my rotator cuff and labrum in my right shoulder.

Good questions, in terms of my BR I basically have an unlimited br as I'll be backed for the SNE grind. I did this mainly because I don't want to ever have to sweat money while I'm out of the country, and even though I've done well the last 3 months, I came home from Vegas pretty much broke and in debt, so I didn't want to chance starting off on a big downswing and running into a money crisis. I got a really good deal though with my backer and we've had a good relationship throughout the Merge stake so I'm glad we reached an agreement for the SNE grind.

To go more into detail though about the br req'd to grind these $30 hypers, I'd suggest $6000-7500. I'm just coming off a 260 BI downswing on Merge but with a 70/30 payout structure and a 10 bb start with a terrible structure compared to PS on Merge, you're going to naturally have more big swings. I've done quite a bit of research on some of the stars $30 hyper grinders, and for the most part, I haven't seen too many swings over $4500ish, but those big downers will certainly happen.

In terms of sofware that I use, I run TN and HEM while I grind and use sng wiz/nash calcs/icmizer to study with. I have a pretty elaborate HUD setup compared to most sng grinders (and hyper grinders especially) I'm sure. 4 lines and color coordinated with 3 colors on each stat



And if you're a reader of my past pg&c threads, you'll know that I'm not one to keep myself to an actual schedule in terms of waking up at X time, eating at X time, playing from X-X etc...I usually just sleep whenever and play when I feel like I'll be on my A game and want to play; luckily that is usually quite often. I'm going to try to get myself onto a halfway decent sleep schedule though once moving, probably get up ~7 or 8am Rosarito Beach time so that my first session comes during primetime and the second sesh has some of primetime hours in it.

I think this is going to be something that I'll shoot for as a normal day
7:30 am: wake up/shower/eat/read 2p2
9:00 am-1pm: grind-$30 hypers/mtts only
1-2pm: eat/read 2p2/relax
2pm-5pm: grind-$30 hypers/mtt's to start(tail end of primetime), add 18s, turbo 6m or fifty50's if needed at end of sesh to keep table count up
5pm-7pm: eat/relax/2p2/whatever
7pm-9pm: grind-$30 hypers/mtts along with other 6-18's throughout
9pm-midnight: anything but grinding
midnight or 1am: sleep

Oh and I don't know of anybody else grinding for SNE with $30 hypers as their main game, I know some guys mix them in at the start/finish of their sessions

Happy grinding man! (since I don't need to wish you good luck).

Don't get me wrong, I don't want to say making SNE will be 'easy' for you, but 500 games a day minimum really doesn't seem all that bad, esp if you can maintain 100-125 an hour (or God forbid, even higher than that). You've even worked in some days off. I think you'll be well on your way, my friend!

Just one comment: Don't pidgin hole yourself into one specific subset of poker; You never know how the winds of poker will change in the next year. Take a few days a month to play some other type of poker that you enjoy. Maybe that's just one or two Sunday a month you play normal MTTs, just don't let your overall skills as a poker player atrophy.

First off GL man :-) Stars also offer the $74 6 man hyper sats to the Million which alot of the regs play and are good value.
