I started one thread here and never updated it, it's kind of shame, hopefully this one will go much better.
I used to playing cash games up to 400NL, but for last few months I was playing 100NL. I kind of burn out on cash games, lost my passion for game. Becasue of this my volume was super bad and I didn't put much time into improving. That's way I had to move down in stakes and ~ break even last few months.
In June I read Xereles PG&C thread and decided to try out games that he was playing. I really loved them from the first game and after few days decided to switch completly from cash games to hyper turbo HU SNG.
It's been only a month but I'm very happy that I made this change. Once again I want to put my whole heart into playing and learning poker, I feel like ~5 years ago when I played my first hand of poker and could spend 10hr/day on this game.
I started out by reading Mers e-book and watching free vids on HUSNG. Than I got Chadders Vid pack. Right now I'm beeing coached by Coffeeyay and I feel that I'm improving every day.
Also I have few people that I can discuss hands with so that's really helpfull.
My goals for July are:
- play 2000 games [1150 so far]
- study at least 2hrs every day
- work with 'Mental game of poker'
Volume isn't impressive but I put a lot of hours into studying this month. In August I will be shooting for 5k games.
Right now I finished my 3 years of university and I have an option to suspend my education and play poker full time.
August will be a kind of test for me If I can play a lot, stay in positive mindset, follow daily routines I probably will switch to full time poker player.
For longer time goals:
- 115k VPP this year (16k now) - with FPPs that I have now it would give me 3x 1600$ bonus.
- move up to 200s - If I would be able to play 200s than I can go for SNE in 2013, I don't think that it's doable for me on lower stakes
- keep improving - I know that it isn't measurable goal so it kind of sucks but I can measure how much hours I put in study every month
Right now I'm playing 60s and I'm on a heater, let's hope bad side of variance isn't coming anytime soon :P An arrow on the graph shows when I started coachings and moved up to 60s.
I'm not sure but I think HEM 2 shows accurate EV, can anyone confirm ?
