2017: move up in the zoooooom

Sup PG&C.
My name is yasuo and I'm currently a 25z grinder. Things have not been going well recently (shot-taking-wise and life-wise) so I wanna make a thread to get my shiit together and keep track of stuff.

Short-term Goals:
1. Become a solid winner at 50z before summer vacation
2. Make 5k before summer vacation
2. Actually study for this final semester (GPA>3.4)
3. Become a less lazy & messy person overall (Better sleeping schedule, dedicate more effort to my girlfriend, etc)

25z graph since I got my new laptop last month


Let's hope for some good run

Re: 2017: move up in the zoooooom

10/1
Just played a long session. Started out playing poorly and running into meh spots. Luckily I ran really well in the preflop allins so that I could keep going. Then I caught some serious heat at the end to finish the session with +$111.87 plus $50 rakeback.


Hands
His river bet drives me nuts...I didn't expect him to have Tx so thought he would check river 99% of the time. Maybe AK going super thin? Or just the AA/TT...man this hand is annoying

            12/1
            didn't update yesterday because I was really really angry at how bad i played. Took some time to adjust my mental game. Also decided to play more aggressively and make more light call downs like those sickos. and then this is what happened in today's session....

            more than enough to recover yesterday's loss

            Hands
            Thank you sir

                  Just got bored and managed to get some open seats at the 30s hyper. Got sat by a reg, declined rematch and got sat again. Then won 7 games in a row to make him instaquit #feelsgoodman
                  For 25z, not much good stuff going on and was down 2bi.

                      15/1
                      Was very lazy yesterday and put in only 2k hands. fortunate to have run well to end up in the green.

                      Gonna grind harder today for sure. And just had an incredible short session.

                      It actually scares me that I'm running good in AIEV recently.

                              and of course i ran QQ into AA bvb in the first 20 hands.
                              At this point i am just too scared of playing 50z, literally every time i take a shot there things like this happen
