2. Find a game and learn to crush it: For those of you who have followed me since my first PG&C thread which was well over a year ago, you'll know that I switched games up a ton. I played everything from ftp 45-90s to FTP super turbos to PS stt's/18s to 45s/180s to cash to just mtt's. All this lead to was me not actually improving in terms of making $'s, I was too busy trying to just learn the basics of each game to actually make any good money from it.

I've finally since getting back on Merge found a game (super turbos) that I've stuck to, and look what happened...I end up being one of only 10 guys on the entire network to beat $5-52 super turbos pre RB over the last 4-5 months with a decent sized sample. Some people give me crap for being "just a rakeback grinder" but guess what, I'll gladly take that $50+ hourly as that's what it truly comes down to, hourly. So seriously, for those of you who switch back and forth all the time like I did, it's very hard to find real success until you pick a game, and you learn to beat it.
someone smart once said this. might be inspiring for current situation.

So still haven't gotten in touch with my backer, the guy is literally never online but w/e.

Not planning on updating this thread anymore, SNE grind is dunzo for the time being and I just wanna get away from the forum for a while.

Probably won't be seeing me post besides maybe prop threads for a while, if I do make a late run at SNE ($100 hypers getting soft again), I'll start updating again.

Gl on the tables everyone and thx always for the support, much <3

Josh
Okay so I say this and literally 12 hours later, $60 and $200 hypers get released, pretty absurd lol. Might change some things, might not. I'm working on trying to get backing lined up for $60-200 hypers, not sure if it'll happen or not though as I have to get my MU sold with my backer and that's always a bit difficult .

For the time being, will be playing $15-30 6m hypers and $15-30 9s/18s/45s while I'm working on getting a new backing deal; will probably try for another week or so before giving up on a new backing deal and just grind out of MU and get on my ownroll asap.

Might keep updating this no matter what though as I got some skype messages from people disappointed that they wouldnt get a daily dose of absurdity from me :P


edit at B3rtstare: Yea like 9min avg game time

if i remember correctly thats what i was saying 6 months ago as well, its better to be on your own on smaller stakes, especially if smaller stakes are soft and stress free printing moneys

stop changing games, get your sh*t together, think it through and
1. write comfortable/safe BRM plan,
2. start using 'responsible gaming feature' to make sure it happens
3. figure out cashing out plan (weekly flat rate or % of winnings, or some amount per 1 game/stake)

IMO you should grind , and then i mean dont change every 2 hours what ur plan is but for one month on the lower stakes with your new found strategies in the 30s and go from what ur redline makes you there if you want to go on the chase still.

really stop thinking and making plans and start doing them imo..
Lol if you think I lifetilt every few days when I'm on bad runs, you just have to remember I'm not a tiltbox like you are, I literally couldn't care less; doubt I've had more than 3 winning MTT days in the last 55 and I'm down like 60k, and besides laughing at my graph, nothing else is said .

WRT whether or not I'm going to move up, I'll move up if I find backing because my hourly will be wayyyy higher even if I were to slightly lose pre RB (don't think that will happen); but like I said above, if I don't a backing deal fairly quickly between all the people I have on my skype list, I'll just grind out of MU and get on my own roll asap.

Okay yea, so couldn't get a deal locked up with anyone, no biggie though. Gonna just grind out of MU at mostly 18s and when I don't have a ton of time to play, $15 6m hypers. Will clear MU and then ownroll as soon as I possibly can; going to be trying to pump out some sick volume going forward from here to quickly clear MU.

I think I'm going to keep this thread updated because it'll hold me a bit more accountable. I think I'm going to offer a couple freerolls like others have done , that post will show up sometime in the next couple days with my June goals.

Gl on the tables everyone and glgl to Sadan Turker, overall CL going into day 2 of event #2 at WSOP. #2p2Reppin

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

yet you keep saying once every month that ur done with hypers seeing the short switch to merge, short switch to mtt, and what not more. Im not attacking you, but maybe this way you are playing poker is not optimal for you...that being said i dont think will be easy to get a very good deal anyway, these 200s are sick infested everytime i look

maybe i look at wrong times, hopefully we will both be able to grind them at some point, becaus eman, these vpps/hour are sickening man

edit; just saw u are gonna grind lower stakes, gl with this man, hopefully you get back higher soon

Ya I was talking to L@P last night and we were just kind of in agreeance that I should probably just quit hypers altogether barring times where I only have the time to put in an hour or so session. They're not really that great for your long term game anyhow, and yea the $100s+ are looking pretty gross a lot and it's going to get worse as the yr goes on IMO, so I'm going to learn to crush another game, 18s.

I don't understand why hypers aren't good long term?
You were crushing the fk out of merge ones for an immense hourly, that to me was the route for you.

Just go back to 2/180s and bring it full circle with 5c draw cash on the side.

If anything, I think the way to go is play 15 and 30 6max hypers for the rest of the year, crush, save lots of monays, get a HU hyper coach, start at the 60s and just work your way up. HU hypers is where all the sick money in SNGs is right now, and 6 max hypers lay a good groundwork for learning them.

Lol merge isn't stable, it could just disappear one day. Also, in 2 days, the player pool is going to split as Lock is leaving the Merge network and taking over the Cake network, so I will not be grinding there as I dont know what traffic will be like.

To both of you, where do you learn how to play a bigger than 25bb stack in a hyper? Never, you don't...I don't plan on playing hypers the rest of my life.

Hourly is going to be about the same as $15 and $30 hypers too, and will increase most likely if/when I move up stakes

Don't really want to go into a big discussion about it, I'm pretty over that, just want to grind

F that stay out of midstake hypers. Unless the amount youd hurt the games could be overcome by me getting better by studying with you.

Ill have to think about it actually.
