you need to play less tables and work on your redline before you think about SNE again imo, these swings look sick but for such tiny redlines i dont think they are that uncommon its still 400 buyins tho lololol ugh,

gl at the hypergrind, will see you around (a lot?)

and like i told you at skype, lol_mtts, sick graph good thing u got paid before it happened lmao (puke) (bear)

Well quads is obv being quads, but in the end he's right. Jdawg if you can get 3% in the 30s 16 tabling that's over a $100 an hour. Work 40 hours a week and youre making 16k a month. What more do you need?

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

Yea I wasn't mad at Quad, cuz yea, he's usually right . I don't even think my tone was saying that, I had just woke up and was still tired and woke up in a bad mood so just didn't want to post back but wanted to clarify my stake deal through PokerSmart was a no MU deal.

Started off the day having a good chat with a fellow 2p2er that plays 50 and 100PLO; guy ended up giving me a bunch of good info, studied for a bit and then put in my sesh of PLO for the day, ended up winning 4 bi's at 25PLO. Will be continuing to work on PLO cash daily, either at the beginning or end of my day, will just depend on how hypers are looking at the time. I'll probably move up to 50PLO after I play ~15k hands of 25PLO if I have a solid enough graph and feel that I'm ready for the next level, my PLO play is going to be split between Merge and PS; will just load up every merge game at w/e level im grinding and then fill in with PS games.

Besides the good sesh of PLO, also have put in 200 hypers so far today with solid results, feel like im playing well and also running well.




Planning on putting in another 3-4 hrs of grind tonight, gotta get my ass in gear tomorrow if I'm gonna win my hours prop with Simplicity8 over the next 25 days

sfobv what zima said


In all seriousness though, I've always wanted to learn cg as a format as I think it's a very good tool to have in your arsenal, especially if you ever plan on getting heavily involved into live poker, which I do plan on doing in the future. The only reason why I'm skipping right over NLHE cash and learning PLO is because NLHE is more "solved" than PLO is right now and I feel that PLO's profitability will stay high for a long time. When I was home after BF and was playing some live games, I played 2 PLO sessions while I was home, the game was filled with PLO "specialists" as they called themselves, and it was incredible how bad all but 1 of the guys played for it being a 2/5 game. Live PLO is the nuts in every category besides hands/hr IMO, so becoming decent-good at PLO online should greatly benefit my long run profitability.

Other than the above reason, I don't plan on playing super/hyper turbos forever as that's most likely not going to be a sustainable way to make a living, so I do need to find another game to work on for the future. That's why for the time being, I'll only be dedicating about 2hrs a day to PLO, with the rest of my day being hypers because yea, I still need to make my living in the present, and 8-10 tabling 25PLO isn't going to cut it obv.

__________________________________________________

Just woke up, gonna get in a quick session then make a subway run. Judging from the lobby's, looks like I'll be starting the day off with PLO as the hypers are loading 4-6 regs deep/game atm although there's no good regs loading atm, so we'll see what i decide to grind

lol obviously they aren't talking about it like it is cracked. Just that NLHE is very easy to pick up and learn the basics because of the HUUGEEE amount of info out there. Getting hold of info on PLO is more difficult and stuff like hand charts don't really exist in the same way that NLHE ones do

imo all this PLO talk is just an elaborate ruse - stage is clearly set for a move to HU 7 card stud hi/lo.

Yes, this is why I'm choosing to skip over NLHE and play PLO

Tyty, same to you. Idk man, I enjoy partying more than most so I feel like it's super tough for me to stay on track, but like if you asked my roommate about my discipline, his snap response would be "What discipline?"

Your Thailand trip looked sick, but those tiny little asian girls aren't my taste at all and I'd probably get myself in trouble over there .

___________________________________________

Ugh gotta get in a lot more volume today, failing it up pretty hard! I played my sesh of PLO first today and I'm not going to be able to do that anymore, I'll play that as my last session if I've gotten in enough hyper volume during the day.

Might take a nap so that I can stay awake til pretty late in the night and start the transition into backing my sleep sched back up so that I'm not starting til noon or later every day. Not sure, gotta experiment with it as I might not be able to keep up enough tables grinding offpeak even with my new lowered table count.

Todays graph of lol 73 games:

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

Ugh failed it up pretty hard yesterday, I keep making the mistake of blazing early in the evening and then I lose all motivation to continue grinding and get super tired etc. Gonna make a rule where I can't do any drinking or smoking until my playing day is over as I've now failed 3 days in a row because of drinking or smoking lol.



Today the maid comes in, so I'll probably fail at volume a bit early in the day, hopefully will make up for it later in the day. Figured out last night if I have any chance of SNE at all, I have to get back up to playing the $100s for most of my volume as I now don't play over 15 tables at the $30s (would play 9-12 at the $100s), so gonna have a chat with the backer and see what we think should happen. Seems silly of me to be playing hypers if I'm not going for SNE, but idk, it still might be the right choice wrt hourly if I can beat the games for 2-3% now that I'm not mass tabling.

Anyways, better get some food and then get on the grind, gla today

Hey jdawg, no offense but you should really workout more. Maybe you could go for a run in between sessions?
