Haha, after thinking about it more and talking with my roommate and a few other players, I'm ******ed not to switch back and continue the SNE grind, so here goes!

____________________________________________

As you can read above, I'm headed back to stars to continue the SNE grind playing mostly $100 hyper's. Pretty stoked on PS finally adding higher games.

Inb4 people LOLing itt and such though I think that's ******ed, I likely wasnt going to hit SNE playing just $30 hypers so I switched to another site where I've had success, and then 3 days later PS brings out the $100 hypers, so now I'm back.

Anyway, will be on the grind soon, if anyone wants to come donate at the $100s to myself and Gramps, would be appreciated

Haha yep, ill be back to Merge if they remove the higher bi's unless it would be clearly possible for me to make SNE at the $30 hypers on PS.

And will do, gonna try to get in as much volume before I go home Monday, then when I come back, will be right back on the grind!


________________________________________________

Forgot to post VPP total as I want to see how many vpp's I can get per hour and per day etc.

71,135.51
SNE Pace: Heaps more than ^

And graph on the day so far, played this super short session late last night after I was done on Merge for the day



Gla today! Waiting on some more $'s from my backer, then will be on the grind, or might just start super short in the cashier in a bit after I eat, not sure yet!

lemme know if/when you fix this...i gots a couple as well (not even my fault, my pile of shoes wasn't available to throw at the wall so I threw a skateboard instead). and I'll do the same...

welcome back!!

thoughts on mixing 9 and 6 max hypers at higher levels to achieve volume requirements, or too different of ICM structures to mix?

Haha word will let u know. <3 the it's not my fault I threw my skateboard instead of shoes! :P

And yea what Ruse said, there's not going to be any $100 9man hpyers that run imo unfortunately. I'll just most likely mix $30 hypers in if I don't have enough tables up.

____________________________________

Got in 50 games in 1 hr 20 mins which wasnt bad at all considering I skipped lots of games and my avg table count was 6. Felt like I was playing really well, went over some spots and I was hitting thin calls and thin shoves which is good since I haven't played these games in a little while.

Didn't run to hot during the session, but oh well! Games got pretty bad once 11:30am my time rolled around, I think I'm going to have to shift my grind schedule away from afternoon peak time.

Yea for sure, more skill edge to be potentially gained as well in these games compared to Merge.

Haha, I'm hoping they keep all the bi's they've added, doesn't really matter to me if they add other stakes, just super stoked they added any at all

Haha thx guys, I can't wait either :P.


____________________________________________

Ended up getting ~3k more vpp's today in 173 more games after the first update. Plan today is to pump out some good volume while also table selecting, seems like a lot of games are pretty awful; been skipping any 6 reg games as it's probably not profitable to play them.

VPP Count: 74,051.31
Pace: ~146,175


Here's a graph from all 220 games played since I've been back on PS.




Gla today!

Yea, lot of the former FTP regs have been grinding $30 6m hypers for the past months and now are playing $100 6m and 9m. Games are pretty tough!

Games were super bad for a large majority of the day so I haven't gotten in a ton of volume yet, I plan to be putting the bulk of my volume in at night anyhow so its w/e.

Have gotten in 4k vpp's on the day so far, will be putting in another 1-2 sessions tonight. Here's a graph of the day so far, hopefully I heater the nightcap and maybe can get myself out of makeup!

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

Got a boatload of VPPs today while keeping my table count really low which is awesome. Played for 9 hours today and got over 8k vpps meaning I'm getting more vpp's/hr by about 25% compared to $30 hypers while keeping an avg table count of 7 compared to 20 playing $30 hypers.

Unfortunately didn't run so well on the tables, but no worries, hopefully tomorrow is better! Will be putting in a boatload of hours the next 3 days, my goal is to hit 100k vpp's or more before going home on Monday.

Yesterday VPP Count: 74,051.31
Current VPP count: 82,183.44
VPP's accrued today: 8132.13
Pace: ~148,110



Graph from today:




Roommate leaving for Vegas in about 1 hour so probably gonna stay up and chill for a while and then head to bed soon after he leaves.

Gla on Friday!

HS games aren't really that beatable pre RB on Merge and they don't load. Merge is the nuts for low stakes though (for myself at least, pumping out sick amounts of volume while winning pre RB).

U should update ur thread more u nit!

Hey man,

Have scanned the thread since you moved back for the 100's ( I knew you would btw ) and haven't seen you talk about the below yet, sorry if ya have.

Do you think you can be profitable at the 100's pre Rb? Im assuming they'll be slightly softer for the first while but will soon become pretty damn tough imo.
If your unsure about whether you will be profitable pre rb I'm assuming your expecting to be better than -2% ( calc's done using all $100 BI's )

Basically just wanna know what you think about how the games will toughen up and what your possible expectation is over a years play.

Anyways, GL with it mate, I did have my doubts when it was only 30's ( due to the crazy volume req'd ) but now i think your a good bet to make it.

Honestly, these $100's are pretty tough right now but I'm thinking they might soften up as time goes on. The reason I say that is because a lot of fish don't even know these $100 6m hypers exist right now; if you don't read 2p2/arent on PS all the time, you could easily miss it. Another reason is this is just like the start of a new year for a lot of these grinders with the $100s being added, so many guys are pumping out wayyy more games/day these last 3 days than they will on average during the course of the entire year.

In terms of profitability pre RB, I think that the top regs will certainly be able to win pre RB, but I think the majority of players who play them as their main game will lose pre RB at them or b/e. They've been pretty tough so far this week with many many 6 reg games going and not many games going with more than 1 target/game. I'm hoping to b/e or profit pre RB, but the rake is a bit higher on them than I imagined it'd be....I'm just going to continue to work on getting better daily and putting forth 100% effort with every session I play, all I can really do tbh.

Tyvm for the well wishes, I'm hoping I do well at these games, although so far haven't done so well :P
