You are a sick sick grinder, i wish i had tenth of your grind discipline.
What about adding other formats to the grind such as 50fifty or even formats with less varaince as 18/45/180 man?
Do you believe you can be profitable pre bonuses playing the hypers?

GL and Keep up the good work!

Josh,

Best of luck in Mexico. I am envious of you, not really that I have ever had a desire to be a pro poker player as my income does not rely on poker, but my god do I miss playing on Stars!! Did you bring all of your FTP KO t-shirts with you this time or did you actually burn them after being sent home from Canada????

This thread is going to be huge if you keep it all the way to SNE. I still do not understand this SuperTurbo madness but enjoy your updates and honesty about the game and how much effort you have put into becoming a winning reg in these. I am sure you will succeed!

BTW, your place is very nice with truly awesome views outside. Enjoy your journey!!

out of curiousity why so much hate for hyper satelites, because they start 10bb and not 25bb? or do you have some issues with the payout structure (some do, would love to hear your take on it, if you have one...)

Good luck, and thank you, enjoying the ride as usual!

Haha sick, didn't know he still played. That's hilarious.

Honestly, I know very little about HEM and nothing about PT3, sorry to not be of any help . That'd be a good question for someone like JukofYork though

Tyty, gotta have the discpline and grind ethic to make $'s. I probably wont add in other games because they'll lower my vpp/hour so much so that I might not even make SNE if I do that. I def would like to be profitable pre RB playing these hypers and I think with a lot of work it can be done.

Thx Ben, yea I definitely missed PS a lot and being back on is so great. I did end up bringing my FTP shirts lol, just had them buried deep and turned inside out.

Super/hyper turbos are just a means to an end for me, and it's a super popular format with fish which is even better...just as of right now it gets me the highest hourly, which is all that matters to me. I definitely think I'm a winner at these already with how I'm playing, just working on adjusting and playing differently against different regs now; have most of my default ranges down for every effective M.

And thx, hopefully I'll have some more pics up at some point, I don't have a camera yet but might get one.

________________________________________________

Just woke up and not sure if I'm going into town with my roommate or not to Santander, I heard they don't usually convert money to USD's and I kinda wanna get in some decent volume before heading out tonight.

Anyhow, will post an update before I go out tonight if we end up all going...will be disappointed if people back out and we don't go .

Glgl everyone today

Honestly, I don't have any hate for them, it's just that the edge is so much smaller in them which leads to a ton more variance (basically like merge variance where you saw that 270 BI downswing I had in october, that would be a common thing in these PS games imho) and I've never actually studied them so I don't know the math behind shoving/calling which would obv make it super unprofitable for me to just dive in.

I might try some out some day and see how I like them, I could see them being very profitable hours before the SWU and Mil on sundays and it would maybe be a good idea to play them then....but idk.

Sup Josh!

It's great to see you grinding on Stars again!

Looks like Rosarito is treating you good, so far? HK club is the nutz, have fun up in TJ and stay out of trouble! lol

If you get the chance stop in the Adelita Bar sometime, good tie in with the vid I'm posting here for ya! The band got its name from that club, epic Mexico trip a few years back, I'll tell you about it in chat sometime

Yeah, naps are like required down there I think, just keep 'em reasonably short - power naps! Get yourself on a schedule that gives you optimal sessions when you are alert, rested and motivated. Make shorter sessions end of your day, and when your natural energy cycle is lowest (like early afternoon etc.)

Keep on working hard, keep on learning!

Yea 20 bb stacks are really awkward, idk, I think I'm adjusting to it okay.

Yea Rosarito is treating me well so far, will try to avoid trouble tonight .

I've heard about the Adelita but most of these guys are crazy for the HK, but will def check out the other club as well.

__________________________________________

Calling it a day and gonna just book the win now while I have it. Gonna just study a bit and then relax before heading out tonight.

Will probably grind a bit saturday and then sunday starts the "real" volume where I'll be going for 3k+ vpp's every day I play

_______________________________________________

Unfortunately the club isn't happening tonight as Bolivar woke up sick, Jiacstrip got 8th in the big $55 and has been there the last 2 weeks and decided to take a week off and the Germans disappeared, so it woulda been down to myself and Nick going, so we said F it. Hopefully next week we get to go for sure as I'm looking fwd to it!

Okay so was pretty lazy today but put in 2 good 2 hour study sessions which was great, feeling really confident in my game even though I'm down like 30 bi's atm (which means nothing in this sample).

Tomorrow I'm gonna try to put my 2012 plan into action and go for 5k VPP. An avg day (I hope) will be 5k VPP, take 65 days off and get 1.5 mil. That's my idea anyhow, we'll see how brutal a 5k vpp day is tomorrow I hope!

Start VPP: 35230.57
VPP accrued:1617.31
End VPP: 36847.88


Updated HEM:



Glglgl everyone tomorrow!

lolol ^^^, that's ****in great.

Solid start to the day, loaded for about 70 mins in each of my first 2 sessions, need to get to where I can play 3+ hour sessions on the reg, not sure wtf happened cuz I used to be able to do that with ease but w/e, have til Jan 1st to figure it out .

Gonna go take a quick walk on the beach to try to clear my head, shower, and then get back at it.

Hmm, you got a spare room there?


Despite my trollololing, your PGC threads are admittedly compelling reading, and as this game is on Stars you've now made me feel I ought to give them a semi-serious try. Basically I'm sick to death of long sessions for MTTs, and particularly I mean the long sessions where you can't just stop because you still have stuff running. Four short 2-hour sessions would be much more likely to happen than one long 8-hour session, so I'm trying to find a way I can stay playing poker, but with the ability to be able to stop within a few minutes whenever I want, instead of being stuck 1-tabling. And also without having to have a go at getting my head around cash games, which I think are as boring as ****. I tried, and pretty much hated, HUSNGs, and 9mans still can still take ages to finish, so if I can do something with these then they might become my main grind. I'll probably still dabble in MTTs when I feel the urge, but if I can do something with these then I'll be delighted.

Sooo, probably gonna put in a good 1-2k sample of these myself at the bottom level, just to see what happens; nearly through 200 already, though I suspect that even 25% ROI at the 1.50s is still running pretty good. But if all goes well I could definitely see myself moving up and grinding the 7s, with a bit of profit and a bit of rakeback. Though I'd expect that even at the 1.50s the hourly should be better than average wage for a competent 15-tabler.

Just start at the 7s right away imo... unlikely to see swings over 100 buy-ins very often if at all.

Re: 10,000th Post: SNE 2012, Jdawg91 Style (+ more!)

yea TT, def do what SG just suggested and start right off at the $7s.

Okay so today went from +1000 after my first sesh to -300, was quite annoying but not much you can do.

If anyone's interested, selling up to 50% of the SWU and Mil here, plz do not buy pieces in my pg&c thread though, just reply in that thread

Will be on the grind early, hopefully will get in 400+ hypers again, glgl tomorrow!

I myself think that 6 is enough, since its frying your brain so fast with all the close decisions. I think all other forms of poker is easier to play for profit, but these damn hypers are addictive and fun for the moment.
