$1,250,000 profit / 5m VPPs -- mrGR33N13

Sup guys, im mrgr33n13 on pokerstars and riyyc225 on ftp. I play primarily HU sngs, turbos and hypers. Been told by a few people that I should put a thread up here so here it goes.

Going for 1.25m profit on sharkscope for mrgr33n13, but Ill be happy if I can get it between stars and FTP. I have goals of getting 5m VPP but will also settle for 4m. Right now I am up around 350k between the 2 sites on the year and already at 900k vpps. I have been fortunate to get a lot of 5k hu sng action so far which is great for my VPP goals. However, most of the 5k action is vs very good players like Ben86, Ike Haxton, Sauce, etc which always makes for a good challenge.

I see a lot of players on here with very lofty VPP goals. They seem to all be playing 6max hypers sngs and I see that as a game where u can get burned out quickly because it doesn't take much mental stimulation once you've figured it out. I think my situation is different because as much as people think hu hyper sngs are flipping, there is a big skill element as you have to always be making quick adjustments vs the people you play and be very careful with how you are constructing your ranges. I really don't see myself getting burned out, I wake up each day itching to play and if playing hypers ever gets boring Ill make sure to challenge myself vs someone in 5ks to reignite my passion for the grind.

Ill try to keep this updated pretty frequently and I am happy to answer most questions.


Obligatory EV graph since 2p2 luvs EV graphs (my hem is a bit messed up and im about to switch over to PT4, some tourneys are for sure missing as im up quite a bit more then 230k)

Background info: I am 22, been playing hu sngs since I was 17. I am American and after black Friday I didn't play much poker, just played the occasional live mtt. Now relocated to Montreal and going to solely focus on hu sngs again.

(1) Do you think you have now earned Skai's respect or does he continue to beat around the bush about that?

(2) How much are you up on Skai right now for this year?

(3) What's your FTP SN?

(4) Do you stake? If so, what levels? (PM me if this is sensitive info.)

Subscribing, gl.

How bad was it mentally (in terms of motivating yourself to play and questioning your game) around game 8000 to the bottom of your downswing?

That's a good question, I am not sure.

(2) How much are you up on Skai right now for this year?

I ran pretty hot vs him, I think I am up a small amount but we share lobbys now. Sometimes when action is dead we play a game where each person gets to ask what the other person has one time per game. That's where I plan to win the bulk of my 1.25m profit this year. (not srs)

(3) What's your FTP SN?

riyyc225

(4) Do you stake? If so, what levels? (PM me if this is sensitive info.)
No, maybe at some point in future I will.

The downswing (all 48 hours of it) came from playing Ike Haxton. It was a bit worse then the graph says because we side bet on top of the 5ks. I didn't lose that many buyins and I am fine declining Ike action for some time and print some pretty variance free money. Since then, I am already back to even from the start of our 5k+ sessions together. =)

When playing against regs, Skype video chat is a tool most people don't utilize. When used correctly, you can see up to 3% ROI boost. When drunk and used correctly, you can sometimes see up to 10% ROI boost.

Hi, from Canada :P

What you did in 5 years is quite impressive, even more so that you didn't play during Black Friday. Could you tell us what you think made you progress that fast? Do you think you could do it again starting from 500$ bankroll? If yes, how fast? :P

I hope you like Montreal, it's a great place, lots of cute ladies there.

Any tips? I'm trying to implement this but I think it's a b/e adjustment at best for me atm.

Also, in.

Subbed... as corny/awkward as this sounds - guys like yourself, skai, fisfarfar, serkules are an inspiration. Not because how much money you guys have made, but rather I admire how much hard work it took to get to where you are now. So defo looking forward to more updates from the thread. Few Qs

1) What's your process of improving/studying the game aside from actual play? How often do you study given you already put in more volume than most hs husng grinders?

2) Top 5 (most important) tips/advice for someone currently playing 60s hypers looking to break into 200s+ (tips/advice you wish you had known when you were moving up the stakes)?

3) If it is not sensitive to share on 2p2 - what do you think you do so well/different to your typical 300s/500s regs that allows you to beat 1ks for 2% roi?

4) Lastly a simple one - how many games/hr do you get at 1ks on average when you play mostly vs. fish?

Cheers and gl!

I was railing you in the sattyies, it seems you are trying to win a seat for every major from alaska to japan

And to brag, not sure if u remember, after I said to you: "wow, sick bad beat", you replied: "well chos, you just have to keep your head down and grind it away, thats the only way to win" , a pretty cool line imo
Anyways GL!

at first it was a bit tough, I had to battle the very best and there were a lot of spots where I was confused and I hadn't really constructed my ranges that properly ( I was button clicking ) At this point I have been playing so much volume, my game is really finely tuned. There is no spots I don't feel very comfortable in and I am very confident in my hand reading vs very tough players.

Before Black Friday I was playing 2-5k hu sngs on FTP as well as some 1k hypers. I already was pretty adept at these, however, the game has evolved a good bit since but I just saw what good players were doing, figured out why they were doing it, then added it to my game and improved on it as much as I could.
