So, updates, I'm back at my rig tonight, and I've recently started playing the HUSNGs. Going through as much info as I can ATM about ten but in general I'm not doing too bad at them. Still a tonne of issues but I'm playing them better than I was 2 months ago when I tried. Starting with $50 at the 1.50s and will move up when I have 50BIs for the 3.50s.

(lolatchanginggametypeagain)

I've decided to look at the HUSNGs due to being told that the variance is probably the lowest of any game type and playing these can make you improve your game in a lot of other areas. Playing normal speed.

Will be aiming for decent volume each day of these and whennim home I'm gonna outline some goals for weekly/monthly basis.

Went for a run the other night, managed 4km before I wanted to die haha. Had a big night out last night, no news on the lady front, but last Wednesday did get chatting to a bird who is really cool, so will update as too how that goes.

Gl everyone

Cheers mate, gonna sign up to HUSNG . com for a month and see how that goes.

I've come up with some goals for the week/month as well:

[ ] 120 HUSNGs a week.
[ ] Work out at least 4 times a week
[ ] Stick to a $200 a week budget
[ ] Spend at least 4 hours a week studying my game
[ ] Attend all classes at Uni.

August Goals:

[ ] Have money in my bank account so I'm not living week to ****ing week
[ ] Control my spending
[ ] Work out at least 15 times in the month
[ ] 400 games a month


Obviously the monthly goals are gonna be quite difficult as we are already half way through the month. But I shall try my best

Gl everyone

Hey mate, I just read through this read, I wish you the best of luck with Your goals! Where abouts in Vic you from mate? I live in Melbourne, and have been playing poker recreationally for about 3 years. I quit my job 3 months ago to start playing poker professionally online at 6 max tables, and I've had amazing experience so far. If you ever need anything or just feel like talking strategy, let me know

Cheers mate, I'm still working out what I wanna play, I feel like a douche for constantly changing it up but I just get disheartened.

And I'm currently living in ballarat at Uni, but I'm down in Melbourne every weekend.

Nice dude, are you finding the freedom good?

You have Skype?

And I don't personally think it's a massively expensive country, I used to live in the UK and that was way more expensive.

And no, we do not pay Gambling Taxes

If anyone reading this knows how to do an EV Calc, could I please get them to explain how I can do one myself? I see them being done everywhere but can't work out where some of the figures are coming from.

Cheers

Nice dude, are you finding the freedom good?

You have Skype?
The freedom is amazing mate! I wake up early (4AM) to catch all the Europeons playing, and have all my hands done by about 10 or 11. Sometimes I play longer if games are good. Then I have the rest of the day to do whatever I want, and next year I'm relocating to Thailand for 7 months and playing poker over there.

You must get pretty cold down there mate, especially in recent weeks lol.
You study at Ballerat Uni I take it?

It's ok to keep changing your mind about what format you want to play, it took me 2 years to figure out what I enjoyed the most when I was starting out lol. The most important thing to do once you do decide what game you want to play is imagine exactly where you want to be in regards to your poker career in say a year's time, and then do absolutely whatever it takes to get there. If you do this, I have absolutely no doubt that you will be successful.

I do have Skype mate, if you want my Skype details just let me know and I'll PM them to you!

I figured I'd give an update as too my other goals as well. Attended all classes so far this week, and went to he gym today, ran 3.5km in 16minutes and then 6km in 10minutes on the bike. Feeling pretty good today. Will probably go back to my unit and watch some strat after this lecture/work out how to do an EV Calc.

I busto'd my roll last night (again) which a poster in this thread saw me do :P

I plan on taking a slight break from playing for the next week or two an just focusing on the theory/mental side of my game. Will update daily as too any revelations/improvements.

Gl guys

Re: Zero to Hero. My quest to become a solid person/player.

So, got talked into playing some Hyper HUSNG, Had like 1 buyin in my account on stars and decided to try and roll it as high as possible. After like 12 or so of them I have like 5 buyins and almost enough for a medium 10 McNugget meal. From first glimpse most of the micro players are blatantly ****ing ******ed. I've seen my jams called with K5o on a AT7r board. It's beautiful. Gonna play a load more tonight and see how I go.

Will be posting HH's once HEM is back and un****ed itself.
