Planning on popping a bottle very soon!! Thanks a lot man, it means you pay ~$182k in rake and receive $100k+ in bonus money overall. So you could lose $100k and break even :P

So to summarize a few key things:

.Increase your limits incrementally (same principle for increasing your multi-tabling capacity and session lengths). I remember when I first learned super/hyper turbo games. I went from generally ~25 tabling turbo games, to ONE tabling those ones. This was at the back end of last year, then I just added table by table up until 16+ was possible. You gotta be willing to go slower during the "method" process to maximize the "madness" outcome. Think of the Karate Kid

.To improve motivation, a few things are really important. Firstly, you gotta attach yourself to things within your control, and detach yourself to things outside your control. If you attach yourself to your results, you won't be in control of your emotional state since an uncontrollable externality is determining your state of mind. Therefore you need...

.Goals: without a goal in your mind, you will have no end purpose you are aiming towards. That way, it's hard to subconsciously feel like you are making positive progress. If on the other hand you know your goal is to play 6 hours in the day, and you know this will be 2*3 hour sessions, then suddenly you have a goal that you can attach yourself to, that is within your control.

.Reward/Punishment: To positively/negatively reinforce achieving/failing the goal, you need to reward or punish yourself. If you don't do this, then the goal won't have any real immediate consequences. So a while ago I talked about treating myself when I succeed in a goal, or if I fail in a goal I'll impose silly punishments such as shorter lunch break, having to do push-ups to failure each morning, shorter showers, just anything you'd hate doing.

Ultimately I think we generally attach ourselves to factors outside our control, with no goals, and no repercussions for succeeding/failing in what we are setting out to achieve. If we fix these three core aspects, we'll have a better shot at success [and a success which is personal to us, not a "cultural success" we are made to believe is "success"].

Hope this helps!



Happy, relieved and excited! Gonna be a good feeling by the end of it I'm sure



Tyty! Should finish around midnight UK time I think
Sick wisdom ^^^, personally I struggle with stacking tables, and have always been envious of the massive multi STT/sngMTT grinders, you see tiled is much more comfortable for me. But I have never really approached it from the angle of playing less of the new format and building up to eventually having more stacked then tiled. Recently I 6 table tile comfortably, but perhaps I should try something I've never tried before, and stack with less tables then I'm currently use to. Previously each time I tried stacking, I would naturally assume I should be starting out with more tables then what I do regularly because otherwise, whats the point. My roi would plummet and I would dismiss myself as a moron who can't stack. I'm probably still slightly ******ed, but I'm determined to figure this **** out. Seems to me my approach was just wrong, gotta hit it with 4 then add 5/6/7+, NOT going from 6 tiled to 7 stack'd.

GL with your goal, I think you'll beat your thread title (ldo), seems like nothing can stop you atm, sounds so fulfilling.

Question for OP, How exactly does your note taking happen. Obviously it's not really needed in higher/highest stake sng's where player pools are super small and you all know eachother, but for some of the more popular games in the mid limits do you just make assumptions of non regs, or do you hot key some tables to the side to write notes + watch hands playout?

You don't need to stack 7 tables. When you are confortable with playing 6 tiles, stack 6 tables upon the original 6 tiled. It took me 3 days to get used to it and then the ROI was back where it used to be.

Congratulations to ILS007. Happy holidays

You can definitely play more tables effectivly playing stacked than playing tiled.
I used to play my normal sessions playing 12 tables tiled,now I play up to 30 tables stacked with ease,you just need a few days to get used to it,then you will double your volume My ROI didnt suffer at all either btw

For notes I enjoy using the colour coding system which they updated earlier this year, before that it was really difficult. Basically I use assumptions with what information I do have available on non regs, and if I see any hand that is note worthy I might colour code them. I sometimes type notes but it's pretty pointless as I never end up looking at them, though now that I'll be player a more reasonable number of tables they may come in handy.
