Wellllll

The other night, ran deep in the $16.50 PKO. Was CL with three tables left and stayed up wayyyy too late, but figured it was going to be worth it when I shipped it. Unfortunately, I busted 10th on the FT Bubble.

While that was a tad deflating, I woke up the next day and still felt like grinding. Admittedly that enthusiasm was dampened a bit by the recent results but once I got the tables up, those were in the past and I was ready to build stacks.

Shipped the $55 6-Max Hyper PKO for $2.8k
4th in the $16.50 Bounty Builder for $1.2k
3rd in the $215 Bounty Builder for $5.7k

Hard to complain about that, altho if you asked me I could certainly think of a few particular spots that didn't go amazingly well. That said, ended up making close to $11k for the day and got myself out of the week-long downswing.

Even ACR is doing a $1million GTD tournament now it's clear sites are v interested in the PR leveraged by good MTT offerings.
ACR's new schedule looks fantastic, definitely want to add in some of the games to my normal grind. Really hoping that these other sites can get their **** together and perhaps then PokerStars will be less likely to hold its customers over a barrel. Most of the changes Stars has made in the last two years have simply been because they could and the community didn't have much else in terms of options, but slowly and surely it appears to be changing.

Really have enjoyed reading this thread man.. hopefully I get to your level soon!
Better hurry, I'm only in CM until the end of January and then I'm spending February in Bangkok.

Thanks!

I'm supposed to take an off-day at some point, right? Didn't want to do that when I was in a downswing and thought that when I finally had a decent day, I'd be more willing to spend the next one doing something other than clicking buttons on the internet.

That was the plan for today -- I busted my last game at 7 AM and immediately headed to Chiang Mai's Promenada Mall/Immigration Office to get my my visa extended. Was in/out of there in under an hour, which is rather amazing considering I've never had it take less than three hours before.

So I might still click some buttons tonight, starting with the $215 Builder in ~2 hours but first, I'm off to the gym and then I'm going to crush a huge meal at Salsa Kitchen, hands down the best Mexican restaurant in Chiang Mai.

Yeah, so since the cat is out of the bag, seems like a decent time for a mid-month update.





Clearly, I've been grinding a lot. Because that's what I do.



Was somewhat afraid of burning out, but so far I feel fine. I'm thoroughly enjoying the process, learning about the regs, leak finding, etc and still am able to have somewhat of a life off the felt. I don't think I can (or want to) keep up this pace forever, but I don't need to -- My goal was 1000 MTTs a month, and I've already eclipsed that in two weeks.

Re: 2018: Tasty Food/Trip Reports/Tournaments

subbed ofc!
I'm really excited to read you on this MTTs adventure and hope most of your leak finding gets reflected on stable coaching as well. Also really interested on your thoughts regarding lifestyle too.
I'm gonna try to make 10k games this year (I'm actually looking for more but just in case 2018: Tasty Food/Trip Reports/Tournaments ) so I hope this thread will give me some confidence to achieve it.

GL!
