Re: Simple Goals: SN 2015 at 15s Spins and $1 a game for SomeBull (Poni)

The 30s shot didn't go so well , I will be back at 15s with around 100BI tomorrow morning, sigh...

An expense lesson I guess but I want to give it another go when I have another 40-50 extra BI for 30s, really not proud of some of the high variance plays I made in the last couple games before busting, definitely a mental game issue I need to work on...

Disappointed it didn't work as planned this time but I am motivated to recover and take another 30s shot soon .

Month #2:

My 30s Shot:



My 15s:



The whole month:





Ok so this was my first month being on my own roll, couple days at the beginning of month I was still backed, basically exactly until the $$$$ peak lol GG backer, things went downhill from there with me bricking a bunch of bigger multipliers including a 100x definitely can't complain about bigger multiplier distru so far but not seen any money from this since the bigger spins went all into my 6max hyper MU and my poker roll..

Happy with the volume and my studies this month, I have been really dedicated with a few hours work on my game every day plus putting as much hours into playing as possible and I will continue this effort next month and see where this gets me (aiming for around 2k games again since I will have just 15 days for poker available). I am still far from crushing but I feel I am becoming a little better every day in spins...

Unhappy with the results and my occasional tilt calls which still happen, also fear of losing (failing) is something I really need to work on if I want to continue playing poker, especially in bigger multipliers I have been playing very badly overall...

Re: Simple Goals: SN 2015 at 15s Spins and $1 a game for SomeBull (Poni)

Was really gutted last night after booking a whopping -20% ROI in 200 spins which basically ate up all the profits from a couple weeks, this made me realize I am not doing this at all:

So in order to spice up my days and have some fun I decided to start playing some micro MTTs (max buy in of like $5 for now) as well I am trying out some 25NL Zoom when MTT table slots are available again lol, obviously I have not much of a clue in either format so I am not expecting much from this other than some fun..

I will continue playing spins but only half days for now, I guess I can post graphs more frequently for those formats (weekly I guess)...

Yes 4 tabling, I usually wake up around 4-5am and I do like 30 minute sets a lot of times a day lol and work on other stuff in between poker, 200 was probably the max I ever played tbh and I only did it because I am a mental fish, I play more games and longer sessions when am losing and quit days early when I am up a few Buy-ins lol...

And yeah I agree spins are a lot more tiring than other formats if I had to compare it to 6 max hypers I would say playing 150 of these feel like 300 hypers.

ah ok. Short sessions is the way to go in spins. I can easily 20table mtts for 8-12hours straight but spins **** my brain after 1hour plus haha

Re: Simple Goals: SN 2015 at 15s Spins and $1 a game for SomeBull (Poni)

Month #3:



What can I say, very disappointed with my EV and how I played overall... Been tilting pretty bad last month (and this month so far) and putting in long sessions when I was losing and cutting the winning sessions short (standard problem) and again been making a bunch of high variance plays that were completely unnecessary.

My Bankroll right now:



Sigh, I walked out with $2700 from the mini stake and now it's almost gone... I should probably be moving down to 7s but no way am going to do this (still got them FPPs so my implied roll is bigger). I decided that 15s is as low as am going, either I beat that level or am done with playing poker - there are other things that can pay my bills with less variance lol.

Just trying to put in a lot of games next couple days to reach my monthly 6500 VPPs quota for SN and them am going to travel south for a few weeks or longer .

Thank you

I assume you are talking about the Rakeback Graph? I am not a 100% sure if the RB stat was already in PT4 by default or if I downloaded it somewhere, just have a look in "Overlay Stats".

Month #4:



I better not say what I think lol but there is a very good chance I will move up to 30s once I unlock my FPP bonus next month and then force a decision for my poker life because as it is right now it is entirely pointless to keep going for me when I can earn more doing other things that won't tilt me as hard haha.

I had a look and I cashed out a little less than $500 since October 2014, not sure how many hours I spent playing but my hourly gotta be a serious joke...

My Bankroll right now:

Time for a few weeks away from poker

Hey Grinder. Been following your blog. I'm playing the 15s as well and we have a few games vs eachother. Hope your boat turns around soon. That breakeven stretch looks really sick, but so does that heater right before. Anyway, GL!

What's your name on PS? I'm wondering if we've run into each other at either 15s or 30s. Subbed, good to read about other people in a similar position.

Proud of myself! Managed to not look for ~1600 games, longest ever for me to not look at BR and graphs and I felt a lot better while grinding even tho curiosity was killing me at times! As for play my very best hmmm, there were a few moments again where I tilted or made some VERY questionable calls lol but overall I think I played fairly well...

I will probably do something like this again next month, maybe only look once a week or so...

Graphs to follow soon, time for my standard 2 week vacation break from poker haha ...

Re: Simple Goals: SN 2015 at 15s Spins and $1 a game for SomeBull (Poni)

Month #5:



Very happy with this month, looks like things turned around for me a little . I managed to not look at graphs and cashier for ~1600 games as planned but I still had some tilty sessions where I spewed a lot of chips (especially after bricking 10x and some 6x multis), definitely need to work more on this especially if I want to make it back to 30s which I am thinking about currently.

My Bankroll right now:



This looks more like it ... I unlocked my FPP Bonus and a couple saved up Stellar Rewards plus I made $15 in a Freeroll lol, so yeah this is definitely a 30s worthy bankroll right now but I will probably cash out a few dollars for my monthly Vacation , just not sure I want to deal with those swings again, 15s feel kinda right for me, have to think about it real hard...
