lack of updates was mainly due to nothing happening that was remotely updateable. on monday i messed up my sleep pattern bigtime and until today i ve been unable to fix it, passing out before midnight and waking up repeatedly at night until not going back to sleep around 9-10 am. i did start getting some type of volume in on thursday and played around 10 hours of poker yesterday but today when i was finally getting ready to grind a big day i got really frickin tired after lunch and got a massive headache. managed only 90 minutes of sunrunning today before deciding to do the 8hrs+ of cash tomorrow. likely no donkaments tomorrow. did manage to climb out of the hole i fell into last weekend today though so heres month graphs:

donkaments:


(likely minus 100$ for rebuys but not sure)

cash:


(no ev cuz sunrunning )

so monday will be my last grind day until next tuesday so hope to do some big hours next two days.

I would stick to cash if I were you the variance in mtts can be really crazy sometimes. Regarding your cash game graph, how are you getting that much rakeback, if I'm not mistaking thats about 50% rakeback?

well i dont rly mind the MTT variance (90% of my MTTs are 180s that are ridiculously soft and that i think i have a pretty huge edge on most villains due to 180man regs having no clue about postflop play) but the main reason i mix them is that i sometimes find it hard to volume in just one format but by mixing i can do 9hr days everyday with no problems.

that rakeback is just from my 40k feepers bonus i casehd in today. i dont like plugging in a %age as thats less accurate than plugging in every single bonus i cash in manually.

hey mate thx for reading
tyty

--------------------------------------------------------------


had a pretty ridiculous sunday. dropped around 300$ mainly from donkaments cuz once again i couldnt close out any of the 3 180 top5s i made. owell. I feel i ve made tremendous improvements to my cash game though. have been talking/doing a bunch of strat lately and i feel its paying off despite the ridiculous session today. (up5bi in an hour, breakeven for next 2k hands, drop 8 bi in 30 min, make back 8 bi right after drop 4 right after that) honestly i d still grade my play an A- or a B+. it was alsoo the most cash game volume i have played in a day since ... fml dont remember. startign to enjoy grinding cash again so will close out this weeks grind tomorrow before going on holiday

100nl lifetime:


few things are starting to click. hopefully the trend will continue

hope yall had a solid weekend!

[x] bunch of coaching 3 coaching sessions

meh although i didnt quite get the goals i set myself i m still happy with what i did achieve. i have made big progress in my 100nl 6m game. worked tons off the table and plugged a bunch of leaks. i m still leaking a fair bunch but i can definitely say i m on the right track. the donkaments i played i basically ended up amassing huge stacks only to run like aids when deep but owell i tried and i did put in solid volume which is all that matters really. that low volume despite having trouble sleeping at normal times and passing out before midnight 3 times means i did work when i was able to which is fine i guess. no or not much poker until the 23rd so no goals for that time other than keep up my coaching. i also started staking a friend of mine today for 25nl. hope that works out well for us, i genuinely feel both guys i m staking are capable of crushing that limit to pieces. best of luck guys

graphs for the week:

good work! getting good feedback for coaching well done is always way better than the grind imo.

what, why would you even want someone who plays the same stakes and hasnt even got a decent sample to show he beats 100 (or maybe he has?) as a coach? Bit of a joke if you accept his monies for this imo (although it is his choice but still....)

If your playing the same stakes it wouldn't be +EV for either of you.

Blakk would want a student he could help and you would want a coach plays higher stakes than you so they can't teach how to beat the next levels

MDoranD plays and coaches exclusively at 25 and 50NL... and he is like the most well-known micro stakes coach in existence.
