Definitely started burning out after a while. Still struggling with that, for sure.

I guess my biggest thing was just organizing all the IRL stuff I had to take care of, and dedicating every other waking hour to poker. I would spend some time every few days thinking about bills, obligations, plans, non-poker life etc and the rest of the time would be poker poker poker. I'd clear my head and when I woke up every day, I wouldn't feel too much pressure because I knew I had the next 16+ hours to play at my own pace.

So I'd just fire up lobbies, and when my mind said "break," I'd break. I'd roam around the apartment, play with or walk my dog, grab a snack, read the forums, whatever. Then as soon as I realized I wasn't playing, I'd sit more lobbies. Rinse and repeat every time I lost focus. So the key for me was taking lots of short breaks, and having all-day sessions. I'd probably be sitting lobbies for 11 or 12 hours, and resting the other 4 or 5. Slept for 7 hours or so a night.

Hard to really explain. The main motivation I had was bankrolling myself for the WSOP. I had a time limit and a lot regret for not playing last year because of BF. I really wanted this.

Thanks for the wishes, I also hope I make 50k more

Re: DONTSTAKEME Hyper-HUSNG $50,000 in 60 days.

quick question for you, feel free to not answer if you don't feel like it
do you win most of your chips nonSD or do you rely on being able to get it in good with close to even stacks? Does it change from player to player?

I win about 40% of the chips from non sd and 60% from showdown.. I'm running over ev though by 1bb/100 hands so they are probably actually closer to 50/50 non sd and sd.
