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

Thx everyone for the well wishes, I personally wish I had gone to the doctors wayyy before I did as I feel a ton better already after being on the antibiotics for about 2.5 days. My very high fever (105, which is actually dangerous for an adult) finally broke Monday, and since then my throat has felt quite a bit better and my cough isnt bad at all anymore.

I'm going to ease back into the grind today and tomorrow with some short sessions of $7 hypers and then the plan is to get back on the full time grind on Friday. I have big plans for February after a failworthy January, at least in Jan I learned a couple valuable life lessons and I hope to become a better person because of it.

SNE pace as of this moment is 86,293 VPPs and I'm currently sitting on 40,399.41 vpps. I leave to go home for a week on February 27th, and the plan is to have 160,000 vpp's by then, which means I'll have to play 18,572 $30 hypers from now until the end of Feb 26th.



Here's a look at my hyper sng graph for the yr





Feb Goals
[ ] 120k VPPs
[ ] Profit pre RB on month
[ ] Continue to study ~1 hr per day
[ ] Start going to the gym daily once I'm healthy (start probably friday)
[ ] No strip clubs/Jesy's/drugs


Gla this month, hoping that I can stay healthy and start pumping out some REAL volume!

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

Well, was planning on getting in 700+ games today, but as of now the SNG lobby still isn't working, so who knows . Guess I'll just study til after the maid leaves and hopefully itll be back up by then.

Forgot to include a monthly graph with RB included yesterday, so here it is, pretty lame month but cant complain for only putting in 60 hrs of hypers





I was doing some research in my SS of different games since getting down here, and didn't realize I was doing so well at MTTs, I guess I'm going to continue to include some $5.50-55 (mostly turbos) with my sessions as I've been doing really well at mtts and it seems silly to not continue to play them.





Anyway, gonna get studying. Gla today grinding!

Yea for sure, getting super sick was a good eye opener a good lesson to me; gotta take care of myself and make smarter decisions.

Tyty!

Most important goals imo, and they should be life goals, not just for February; the hookers and blow meme should just stay as a meme. You can't buy good health no matter how much you make at poker. 105F is bloody lethal, and you're lucky nothing worse came of it.

/parental lecture

Good luck!

Feeling pretty good today, woke up at 5am and went right over to the gym and got in a ~40 min quick workout, came back and showered and ate and its now 6:20 and I'm ready to get on the grind. Hoping to make this my normal morning routine, although I plan on moving my wake up time to 4am I'm thinking.

Anyway, goal today is to play 800+ games, will post results at the end of my session.

Gla today, win the moneyz!

Yessir, that's the plan to start working out every day and keep it going as my normal routine.

And yea, the doctor said with me having a 105 degree temp for that long (6days) before coming in, I could've died. Pretty crazy **** tbh.

wtf, youre waking up before me now

Thats awesome man. Doing regular workouts and releasing endorphins naturally (instead of chemically) is gonna be so plus EV for your game. Im sensing a good month

Just pumped out a solid 600 game session in ~5 hrs 15 mins, making some lunch atm and then will be right back on the grind for probably a 300-400 game session and then will call it a day. Will feel good to exceed my volume goal on the first day, I need to get in a habit of doing that so I can catch up to SNE pace even quicker!

Ran really really ****ty this last session in terms of CD, people kept waking up on my bvb on the bubble, was super annoying. Ran hot though and profited pre RB which is always nice

slayerv1fan 601 $0 $29 0% $81 - N/A PokerStars <12Hours SNG Only x


Glgl to those out there grinding! Will post final results/graph when done on the day

Yea, I was waking up this early before and then just got off of this sched once I started going out every night.

And yea, I'm hoping that taking care of myself a bit more will lead to me losing some more pounds (think ive lost 15 in mexico so far just since ive cut out most of the crap food in my life, no fast food etc) and then just feeling better which will hopefully lead to me playing better.

I def did think I was going to die a few times during that 9 day stretch of period, tuesday and wednesday night mainly. Monday night when I came home from partying, I thought I was going to have a heart attack as the coke was ****** with my heartrate and at a couple points in time, my heart was beating so rapidly i was waiting for the heart attack

Anyway, enough of that BS , tyty and def hitting my volume goal today!

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

Pretty tired, not really surprised as it was my first day back on the full out grind. Gonna just stop here at 850 games and relax the rest of the afternoon and go to bed super early, still sleeping a lot while getting over this sinus infection.

Ran pretty poorly today, hoping it turns around tomorrow. My EV line looked beyond ****** bad today, and has so for about 2500 games now, I'm hoping I'm not playing bad....starting to doubt my pre RB profitability which is pretty F sad. Studied a ton a couple weeks back and continued to study about an hour a day even when I was sick and I really dont see any giant leaks I have so maybe I'm just bad and am not good enough to win pre rb





Gla tonight/tomorrow

You meaning how many vpps/hr i get or how much i make in RB/hr?

When 19 tabling hypers (normal # i play now), I'm getting in about 110 games/hr which is $128.70 of rake/hr. RB/hr works out to ~$75/hr or so at 1mil points, would rise slightly if I got 1.25 or 1.5 mil

Did you already have a fever when you went out? If so, definitely be careful in future as it's often cut with atropine (not sure in Mexico though... ) and one of the effects of atropine is to stop your from sweating.

Glad you are feeling better anyway
