I'm chaant.jc - holler at me! I'd like to type a long response about variance in 80s and turbo mtts but I'm on my iPad so it's a no go. Interesting to discuss though.

Have you ever made a risotto with pesto, as you would pasta? Jesus. Pretty, pretty, prretttttttyyyy good. Parmesan, butter, pesto, then some herby leaves tossed in at the end - rocket, basil etc. Can add a chicken breast too if you so desire. Really great. Or pistachio risotto is amazing with fish and looks super impressive too. Anyway, I digress.

did take a bunch of pics so i ll just post them all:

1.: make a small pot full of chicken stock.


fry onions+garlic till onions get brownish


fry risotto rice once thats happened till it starts getting thoroughly white (its semiwhite transparentish initially)


add half a litre of white wine and stir


when wine is almost gone start adding chicken stock slowly while stirring. add prawns...


...shrooms+ginger...


and sprong onions. while always making sure you add chicken stock until u think the rice is cooked. season with salt pepper oregano and serve with fresh tomatos or a mixed salad.

Haha, your recipes won't win a prize, that's for sure!

So are you only playing SNGs/MTTs now? If so, why? (Sorry if you already answer this, don't really wanna skim through all of this thread.)

sunday was pretty meh as well results wise but i did manage to reach my hours goal. played a total of 39.2 hours of donkaments and then one more hour of zoom just now to complete what must have been the biggest volume week this year, 11 hours of powerpoker today. gotta say i m pretty proud of that one. sadly results have been pretty **** this weekend since i went on a pretty nasty downer but even with that downer the week has been okay so i ll chalk it up as experience and will try to play more cash this week.

think i ll do weekly updates every monday morning with weekly goals i will be recapping. goals will be basically to keep up my weekly schedule and do x hours or y hands depending on format.

week graph:



and the 4tabling 50nl sesh i just played:




not too bad overall but obv sucks i couldnt close any of the FTs i made this weekend. in fact i havent had a finish better than 4th in the last 2 days (rain)

but

[x] 40 hours

and goals for this week:

[ ] 40 hours of play
[ ] 50%+ 100nl cash
[ ] 10 hours strat
[ ] bunch of coaching
[ ] go for at least one run (am yet to start running )

gla, hope yall had a better weekend!

stayed in bed all day and just wasted the whole monday away pretty much. played a few short meaningless sessions on FTP and stars, the latter being a little 100nl zoom to get used to the sizings and all. starting wednesday i ll go maniacally crazy playing cash. really itching to get some good volume in playing 100nl. as of now i m still lacking any sample at that stake but am more confident than ever that i ll be a solid winner there after the few ahnds i ve played there. right now i m just too tired and i m assuming games arent exactly worth playing a serious session while tired.

on a sidenote just now i realized that i actually have something that can be consideered a poker setup. basically ever since i started playing poker on a semi serious basis i never bothered making/buying one so just now when i walked into the office the sight of it made me really happy. my back feels tons better already

pre:



now:




gonna chill n watch a movie or sth. gla
