Hmm downsw0nging. Running kinda bad but also misclicking some, and obviously all most of the games are ridiculously tough lol.
Gonna play a bit more later, might play some 60s and maybe 30s and watch TV or something.

Still leading in high orbit for battle of the planets 100-300 so hopefully will hold, or at least top few spots for a nice bonus at the end of the week..

Continuing to run bad, but I guess the EV and actual results are evening out so can't complain too much. I expected at the start to lose pre-rb and still do, so I guess I should actually be happy at how the results are so far. I guess it's just hard to not care at all when you go on a 10K+ downswing.

Games today were actually kinda decent as they usually are on a Friday night.. compared to the usual average of 5+ regs a game for the past weeks or so,

Yeah earning more VPP earlier would have been a nice idea
Continuing to run bad, last few sessions definitely haven't been fun. Am misclicking a few times every session when I have 22+ tables so I'll try work on that.. Think I'm mostly playing well and am just experiencing the negative side of variance, hopefully will be able to at least break-even pre-RB for a few sessions in the near future, $12K downer is not fun


+920 in refunds and BOP bonuses and think I will hold for 2nd in High Orbit of Saturn for another $800

I said it in the previous post, but I'll say it again, this is far from the end of the world given I admitted I was likely running good overall, I'm very happy to my overall results to date, but psychologically still feels lame "losing back" some nice profits

Not really anything in particular to recommend, but playing in itself will give you a lot of experience and you should naturally get better from playing, seeing what ranges people show up with etc. In addition I guess you can use ICMizer, SNG Wizard, Holdem Resources etc although all have their own flaws. You can also try get coaching, especially if you are learning or starting at really small stakes, but I think for higher stakes the public options aren't particularly great tbh- generally the best regs realise the downsides to coaching and creating entry points in already very tough games and so on, so choose to not offer it and so on.

Hmm haven't really done the math for the 50 day chase specifically to be honest, but I've done a few calculations as to how difficult/easy getting it would be given my current VPPs etc and it will be very "easy" (in terms of number of hours necessary anyway). My average VPP/hr kept going higher because I play more tables now, and I play closer to peak time and also I think a few people are behind pace for SNE and regs are the ones who make the games run the fastest. Ratio of 200s:100s is also higher etc etc..

Hmm I'm not really sure on an exact number to be honest, largely because my entire year hourly is spread across me playing a lot of different games including SNGs, MTTs, Zoom, CAP etc. I played a decent amount of hours earlier in the year for MTTs and just ran crap so it'd lower the average a bit anyway. I guess the answer to what you asked is probably around $15-20? But that's significant considering it's probably over like 1500 hours or something. More if you include the added value of next years extra FPPs but I'd rather include that in my next years hourly/profits

About 106 hours left total!

Played some today and got 20K VPP or something, crazy volume for 200s today, was mostly able to 20+ table only 200s today, obviously games were really gross etc.

Running bad but I have 793K VPP now.

+1.8K in BOP/Refunds. Got 2nd last week for a nice 800 bonus in the high orbit.

List of sessions to date, as you can last few days hasn't been fun

I had a 30 minute or so break after the first hour, I typically wake up, play 1-2 hours, shower/eat breakfast then play a bit more. Sometimes I'll split shower and eat breakfast into two breaks depending how I feel (sometimes I'll feel like I feel like playing, and if so I'll split it into two breaks etc). I think I did play for about 4 hours today, very tiring and wrist/brain get pretty fked lol.

HEM is sorted by day not session anyway for SNGs.

will you be playing 200s after the new year?

will you be playing bigger hypers if they are offered?

what are your thoughts on the hyper "community" and the stare of the games at the moment/leading into next year

I would say generally it seems likely, if I keep downswinging it may be a little less likely, but generally the chance is quite high, although I'll definitely play less tables and even game-select a bit

Bigger hypers will probably have to wait and see how the games are, how my results look after the sample gets bigger etc, but generally quite likely, 300 I'd say most likely, higher will depend on results/later.

When you say community I assume you mean the regs, in terms of how good they are (and not how they as citizens, haha), in general there are a fair amount of regs who are pretty solid, some of them I'm sure have done countless hours of study for push/fold etc. I don't wanna go into too much specific detail here but I will say that there aren't that many regs who I think are really sick, because most of the guys who play really well in certain spots leak in others (for example bubble play, postflop play, non shove range plays like non all-in 3betting) and vice-versa. I'm obviously not claiming to be someone who plays really well in every spot or anything like that, but it does mean that even though the games are tough and competition is high, smart people who work hard definitely have a chance to do well. Also not saying I'm smart, lol.

State of the games pretty bad, start of next year I'd imagine also pretty bad (but not as bad as now) with all the people with their new year resolutions/goals and stuff like that, as usual. Then it should hopefully get a bit better as people start being lazy again.

In general there are enough bad/weak regs and fish who love the games to mean a good player can get a pretty good hourly. Obviously the better the player, the less important game selecting will be etc. I would say the huge advantage of hypers to other similar games (like turbos, non-turbos etc) is that game-selecting is "easier" since the games load/finish so quickly, so you can get say 20 decent games fairly easily, even with high game-selecting criteria..
Mindset can be a barrier sometimes, but we should remember that for the most part, hourly/$ net profit at the end of the day is all that really matters, and if you can overcome the tilt of high variance, losing pre-rb and winning heaps post-rb is still way better than crushing pre-rb but only getting 20 games an hr or something.

Let me know if you have any other questions, I know I wasn't too specific lol

Hey thanks. Yep just gonna play hypers only until the end, the VPP/hr is just way more (like 3.5x or something) and time is precious! I haven't quit cash or anything like that but just probably won't play until next year. It's kinda funny cause I keep joking about how I forgot how to play with 26BBs or more
About 65 hours left until I'm finished.

More downswing, still hoping for some heat sometime soon lol

hah, what's that? Tbh this is probably quite unlikely, I know the profit ceiling is sick high, but even though I work somewhat hard, I don't work hard enough I think. Somewhat off topic but also I like games like hypers where I can stack, my mental game is a bit meh and watching heaps of all-ins is so -EV lol.

Only just seen this thread. GL, although I think you're nearly there now?

Apart from running bad, it must be nice to able to turn a decent profit when you'r losing money at the tables still.

I have a noobie question though, you red AV line is looking ok for first 1/2 tournaments, now it's dropping. Does this mean you're playing bad, or just being coolered running in to AA for example or whatever or does it mean you need to work on your game?

I'm just not sure what it means when it drops lol.
