But do you really plan on playing poker for the rest of your life? Or is poker just a relatively short term thing (a few years) to get yourself set up financially for whatever you want to do in future? If the latter then surely hourly >>> everything else.

Haha fifty50's, have played a few of them for fun and they're a weird format, probably wouldn't ever bother learning them

I'm not sure what I want to do, but transitioning to live seems like a real possibility to me, and I'm not going to have the tools to do that playing 25bb and less poker.

And what I just said above wasn't that clear, but I was saying that the hourly at 9s/18s is going to be ~ the same right off the bat as $15 hypers, and it'll be the same as $30 hypers with less potential $ swings as soon as I move up stakes a tad

___________________________________

Gonna get on the grind in a bit, probably slightly short volume today as L@P and I made a trip to TJ to eat at Mision19, the restaurant that we had the Pokerstars Dinner at. Was super good once again, we got a couple really weird appetizers that we weren't huge fans of, but the filet mignon made up for it a bit and then the absurdly good desert sealed the deal for it being a really good meal

good to hear ya found the restaurant. that part of town is pretty easy if you just know that it's on this side of the river, what was damage? (curious if I'd go back on my own dime aka <$50 and I feel like a baller that day)

180s are dead, gtfo! agree with learning either deeperstacked poker or stud/omaha/random variants. You would obv be a boss with HU hypers as well and I may be thinking insanely shallow, but wouldn't that be the simplest game ever? hand chart and go to town bumhunting?

Yea man, wasn't that bad too find at all and getting home was a breeze too. The meal was pretty expensive but nothing too outrageous, it was $120 US for the meal total. I think we each had 3 beers, we had 2 appetizers, we both had filet mignon (think 310 pesos for each of the filets) and then 2 deserts + L@P had a cappuccino. Wasn't too bad for how much we ate , the appetizers were weird (idr names, they were difficult to pronounce even for me), the steaks were pretty good and the deserts were absolutely insanely good.

I don't really have the patience for HU and it's actually not as easy of a format to learn as most people think. I'd have to get some coaching from someone, which wouldn't be a problem as I'm buddies with a few hyper HU players and I could probably get a bro discount , but not really wanting to learn it just yet when it's the only format of game that can still tilt me to no end.

______________________________________________

Forgot last night was turbo night so the games disappeared like midway through the session I was planning, so my volume got cut really short. No big deal though, just studied a bunch of spots for about 90 mins and feeling pretty decently about how I'm playing.

So I'm going to offer freerolls like my roommate and others have done in their PG&C threads, hopefully this will help keep me on track and will hold me accountable. Each freeroll will be given to 2 people, so 12 people in total will have some action :P. Obviously 1 freeroll/person, I'll try to keep the thread updated as the day continues . Just copy/paste whichever one you want in your post itt

June Goals w Freerolls
-7500+ games (6s-45s, $25 x 2)
-9k+ profit (w/RB 45% included which is 500k vpp pace starting as SN which I'll easily hit, $25 x 2)
-20+ workouts: Been switching off between jogging, running stairs in my tower and then lifting ($25 x 2)
-2 nights or less in Tijuana ($25 x 2)

And going to do something similar to my roommate this month, the above goals you get paid out if I don't hit the targets; the goals below you will be rooting for me and getting paid if I do hit them :P.

-Clear Makeup ($13,363.47 right now, $50 x 2 if I clear it)
-0.10% sweat of SWU/SM/2nd chance each sunday (0.10% of my total cashes in those 3 tourneys over course of the month paid out to 2 people)

That's all I can think of right now, I'm really looking to crush in June. Will be hopefully posting daily updates itt and updating my progress on each of the goals itt. Gla in June!

My current makeup with my backer, if I clear it by the end of June, you get $50.

____________________________________

Yea just note that all these props run together, I just seperated them by whether you're rooting for or against me to hit each goal listed; top 4 if I don't hit my goals you get paid. 1 freeroll per person
