Arrow December 2012 Miscellaneous thread

My goals for this month are pretty much the same as last month but if the world ends on the 21st of December then I guess I'm stuffed.

I need to improve my ROI's up to somewhere near most of you guys. Current are NLHE -16%, PLO +61% and PLO8 0%. I need my game to keep improving and stop making stupid mistakes at crucial times in MTT's.

I also hope this cooler I'm on ends soon or I'll need psychotherapy.

To all of those who helped me through the year whether it was with helpful comments or sarcastic digs I thank you .

Let me be the first to wish you, your families and friends a Merry Xmas and a safe and prosperous new year. (It goes without saying that I hope the Incas or Mayans are wrong.)

Made it a goal of mine to play 50 000 combined SNG/MTTs next year (counting on stars adding some higher stakes NLO8 hypers to make this more worthwhile). Going to prep myself for this by trying to play 5000 SNG/MTTs in December.

Wow 50k games seems extremely high to me. It is hard to get an average of 25 games / hour buyin 7+ during peak time (without hypers). Gl for your goal!

Re: December 2012 Miscellaneous thread

Hypers will likely make up a large portion of the games played. I"ll basically be playing every NLO8 sng and mtt that runs above 7$ while I'm playing as well as some 3.50s when traffic is low and the occasional PLO8 mtt. I'll probably start playing some PLO8 sngs also.

Good luck!
If you even get close I'd like to see how you went, so keep us informed with periodic updates.

Re: December 2012 Miscellaneous thread

Just checked the Math and to make that number of games you would need to multi table at least 16 games for a period of 14 hours a day every day of the year.
That would be some feat and I can't see it happening but it's better to have a goal you can't attain than none at all.

Best of luck.

think you need to check your math

ie. using your 14hrs a day and his 50000 game goal --its 10 games/hr 358 days

ps. happy holidays back at you

Re: December 2012 Miscellaneous thread

GL with your goal, Juicy. I came to a conclusion that you need around 140 SNGs (20 SNGs per hour for 7 hours) per day (with just under 350 days to do it). I think 150 per day is a better pace to go for, as you only need 333 days to do it.

150 a day is definitely doable, you're going to need some instant noodle-like lunches or something you can prepare near-instantly.

I think it's also important to note that traffic is highest on weekends, so Saturday and Sunday combined are probably worth 2.5 days and a day like Monday might be worth 0.8 days, etc.

Re: December 2012 Miscellaneous thread

Thanks for wishing me luck guys.

I definitely think its doable. I have played roughly 500 games in the last 2 days without really pushing myself that hard. The biggest thing for me is I need to get up earlier so more of my sessions take place during peak hours.

Not really worth arguing about but if you place a time limit of 3-4 hours on an MTT and 1-2 hours on a SnG (providing you make the FT) then you will see your figures are not even close.

Anyway it doesn't matter it is still a hell of a lot of games to play and I wish him luck.

Re: December 2012 Miscellaneous thread

Mtt's obviously don't help much to get the volume but will bring you $$$. As i said i get like 25 games / hour by playing everything 7+ (without hypers) During peak times. Imo juicy need to reach 200 games a day when playing to have a realistic chance. And no weekends don't have the highest traffic!

Edit. The problem I notice is that playing sessions > 4hours especially without having 5 min breaks every hour is really exhausting.

Good luck!

I played over 5000 O8 SNG's last month without playing peak times and without straining myself (140 hours) so 50,000 in a year is very achievable. Perfect goal imo - gives you 10 months full time and 2 months holiday.
