63% equity for a drunk man is fine imo, long term it's probably not +ev though.

Ok, brief update:

Since coming back from Vegas in July I've done very well. Not just in terms of poker but other stuff in life too. Regarding poker, I had a little up and down period in July but in August and especially September I've been doing really good (until last night's antics, or whatever you want to call it). Made over 6 figures ($) in September and just shy of it in August. VPP count is on about 890,000 roughly, so will be finished SNE early November and probably go on for 1.25m VPPs for the year, or may just chill and play GTA5 everyday, not decided yet.

Have been going to the gym every single day (literally) for 3 months now. Shown a lot of progress in weights and cardio so I'm really happy with that. Just won the league 1 squash league too (play 5 times a week) at my local club too, something I've always wanted to do. I think the gym everyday has definitely had a big impact on my recent poker success and general all round happiness in life. Me and my long term gf are really good these days (possibly best ever since starting the relationship). We go to Kenya in just under 2 weeks for a 7 night holiday in the Masai Mara. Buying a house for us to live in in the start of the new year too! Regarding drinking, literally only had 2-3 nights of drinking in the UK since March, again probably a factor in my recent upswing.

Just need to live and learn from what happened last night - went to watch a football game, then out drinking after, got back to the hotel and as you may have seen from an above post, was shoving most hands. Was playing like semi reasonable (still obv pretty ******ed in comparison to sober poker) but then lost 4-5 flips in a row and just tilted off about $20k. Nevermind.

Also got some sort of bet going on with 2 friends who I'll be going to Vegas in Jan with (for birthday) for the next 3 months (started Sept 1), involves a lot of different types of fitness stuff, 10 in total, and we have to be able to do 8 or face various forfeits. Running 300km before Dec 31st, doing 90 pressups in 1m30s I think, lifting x kg amount on bench press etc.

Gl for the rest of 2013.

Could you explain what that troll was talking about a few months back? Your lower stake massive losing streak? We're you trying to see if robotic shorting was easy?

Well the calender year didn't start the best for me on PS. I had never really played on PS before (only earned 200k vpps last year). So I guess going from knowing all of the regs that I play with day in day out on the Euro sites I played on to playing against alot bigger and better player pool on PS had quite a negative affect. That added with my desire to just focus my efforts on racking up as many VPPs as I could in Jan/Feb when I lost $1-2k most days lead to me just continually chasing in March and then I had the 4-5 weekends of alot of alcohol so wasn't playing anywhere near my best. That then lead to relationship problems etc so the first 3 months wasn't a good time for me.

Regarding short stacking, I think I did that for maybe 4-5 days max. I guess there were a few reasons for trying the short stacking. I was looking for variation/something new. I was bored of playing like 4 500 zooms and 12/14 600-2k games, so was just trying something else whilst keeping the VPPs racking over. Also had a play with some hyper turbo sngs where its obv more push/fold strategy and think some other forms of poker too.

Another reason, and maybe the ultimate reason, was simply because I couldn't get money onto the site in early April. I had maxxed out my skrill limit, they wouldn't increase it, although now it's $100k, and never struck me there was the option to get someone to just transfer me the funds. Anyway, they opened up the bankwire option now so $50k+ deposits are an option to me. Maybe another reason was just to tilt a few of the regs as I know how annoying it is to have some mofo just sitting with 40bb on your table. But yeah, it soon got even more boring than 100bb and won't be going back to that.

Glad to hear things are back on track mate.

Do you know your total profit/lost for the last ~18 months? obv fine if you don't want to say, I just think its wild how up and down poker is and how long bad spells can continue for, for even the top players.

Ah really? I don't comment much, more of a reader tbh, your thread now being one of them now that I've recently come across it

A mod will prob delete that picture tbh, as I once posted a picture of her up post b00b job and that got deleted, so can't imagine someone else being allowed to post a picture up of my gf

Crushing? Them days are over

Spoiler:
Inb4 some troll says 'they never existed'


But yeah I'm just playing the 500 zoom tables, mixing it in with either 600-1k games on PS and then some occasional higher action elsewhere or just 4 200 and 4 500 games of zoom if i'm in VPP mode!

Is it not worth going back to euro sites to play higher then or is SNE value too good now?

Cheers, I am for sure up over the last 18 months, and 12 too. I keep an excel spreadsheet of all my balances in everywhere I've got money kept each day with a graph of it all and thankfully the graph's trend is still going up. Bit too personal to say exactly what on the internet though. And yeah, variance is a b1tch. I got PS to send me every hand i've played this year last weekend and I can say hand on heart I am running below EV at an ever increasing rate from Jan to August. Thankfully after I sent in my trolling/abusive email to PS support early Sept I have run above EV

Do you still play without a HUD and if so, how do you manage to play such a high amount of tables without any stats?

Yeah, have played whole year without HUD. Don't even bother opening HM2 anymore unless I wanted to check something random. I just put a colour label on every player about what type of player they are preflop. Probably not the best way of doing it, but nvm. Friend told me how to set up a HUD a few months ago but then it broke/tilted me so i quit it.
