25PLO to 200 and beyond.... [2018 is our year]

What's up guys, people might recognize me from my NVG spam posting or BBV **** posting or SSPLO semi helpful semi troll posts (i spend too much time on forums....), and some might know i've had a bunch of PG&C's that always die. This one though is different (he said optimistically ).

I'm going to prove to myself I have what it takes to climb the stakes and actually make a financial dent in the poker economy to spend on hookers and blow (aka junk food and video games, i'm a baller like that).

I've played about 220k hands of PLO this year learning the game and working with different study material, with the most of that volume coming at 10 PLO. I am somewhat comfortable though at 25 PLO with 50k hands and want to try my best to keep this my main limit (and onwards to bigger and better stakes).

2017 YTD PLO graph

(shoutout to pokerstars for the ~5k in rake paid)


Plan to keep this simple and not too structured so I don't burn out on being forced to post , will hopefully update with graphs / fun hands / me getting owned / good music, hoping it will help me stay motivated to keep up high volume and study and maybe meet some cool people along the way - HMU if you play similar stakes and want to chat poker beyond the forums

GL ALL let's crush the last bit of 2017 and onto 2018!

Was in need of a feel good session, dropped to 5 PLO and went hard ( longest session i've played in over a month)



going to be going hard this week ( off work 3 days ) grinding mostly reg tables 5 or 10 PLO and studying super hard. Also going to write up a post in marketplace and trying to potentially find a backer for 25 PLO I imagine for a 50-100k hand contract so I can play freely without worrying about the swings and just play confidently with my reads / play deep stacked where I feel my game is stronger without worrying about busting roll if I lose a couple of 200bb flips.

If I have no luck finding a good match i am 100% confident I can climb my way back up (and support bankroll once some life issues clear up that have been sucking $$$). Plan to do this $100 into $200 at 5 plo , then 10 PLO until $750 and back to 25

If anyone may be interested shoot me a pm with your skype or discord and we can talk / i can send you pics of my stats etc

cheers guys

Re: 25PLO to 200 and beyond.... [2018 is our year]

interesting day had work so played bit in morning and a bit at night, day was good until I saw a 10 PLO ante table with 5 marked fish and 70% vpip on lobby lol, as you can see that went lovely. (10z from random 1 tabling while watching cumicon podcast)



Mini roll at $97 going into tommorow, off work so plan to put in a healthy session of as many 5 plo tables as i can load. Restricting myself to no 10 PLO until over 200 again

Update to my plan is grind this roll into whatever I can until an IRL loan situation clears up (aka i get paid back from someone) or I find a stake for 25 PLO. Rip clickbait thread title until then :P


GL All

legend ITT! Cheers m8 , and it seems like you would love PLO coming from hypers, the love of flipping lots of money and big winning and losing days! I'm sure if you truly set yourself to learning the great game you would crush considering your insane work ethic! But def. looks like printing money doing what you do and being the best is more appealing than re-learning a new game :P



----


Alright spent the day playing MTTs and had a ton of fun whilst grinding some training videos on the side , going to take a break then play a couple thousand hands of the 4 card game like a good boy and posting a big nice graph in the morning.

Also updated my stars tables so they look like I am actually playing in 2017 , had the default setup for sooo long (and switched to 4 card deck) think i'm due for a massive upswing in everything I play now for finally changing.



Off work Sunday so going to put in a long MTT grind, put up a couple packages in market place to cut down variance if anyone wants to pick up some run good equity (MTTs are seperate from this plo roll I am donking around with while i figure things out)
quick link;

Re: 25PLO to 200 and beyond.... [2018 is our year]

Alright first post for the week, coming off a 8am until ~9 pm MTT grind yesterday that ended in slight profit (~19th in $7.50 bounty builder, ~54th in mini sunday marathon) back to the PLO streets!
felt super confident all day and was very happy with my play -bb graph
the way my stakes worked out (sold 60% of one pack/ (free rolled into red spade that i busted) i ended day roughly +$60-70)

Spoiler:


Going through some PLO lab videos again to re-inforce concepts ( as well as going through upswing's MTT course) because no matter what I will always love MTT's and would love to be able to up my win rate there as well :P Pros always reccomend to never play multiple game types if you ever want to be successful coming up but I like the challenge / i'm stubborn

5 PLO so far back on the come-up



Haven't found a stake yet for 25 PLO , but also haven't made a post/ still debating on it since it seems silly to get staked for such low stakes. If you're interested pm me we can work something out


let's aim for 10k hands this week minimum hopefully more

Re: 25PLO to 200 and beyond.... [2018 is our year]

more boring MTT content but was up until 6 am the other day after a 'quick mtt session before bed' (accidentally regg'd a non turbo) and ended up 5th in $5.50 bounty builder

Dear Ceelightly,

You finished the tournament in 5th place. A USD 167.93 award has been credited to your Stars Account.
You have also received USD 56.08 in Knockout Bounties for this tournament.


As a nice session saver from being -$150 on the day in mtts and sngs lol

Going through upswing MTT course at the moment and super into MTTs but still playing about 500 hands of PLO a day and that's been going aight

month at mtts:


(up over 100 on month maybe 150 because there were a couple 50$ tournies I was freerolled into for 20% eq that busto'd)


just a quick update

    Flop: (21,300) 4 K 2 (4 players)

    This week has been me being sick and it hurts to breath through my nose, had a losing package on sunday mostly because I didn't cash the half sunday million. (125th in the mini million for $125.) but won a 2.50 180 man and a 3.50 45 man yesterday while on 4 advils so that made back my losses, other than that not much. PLO to clear my chest boost or w.e mostly and watching training videos.

    Tilting working customer service when I feel like death as well so mostly just want to sleep during my free time

    Gl bro, I always wanted to learn some plo but so far nothing. Maybe you motivate me.
    Don't you think about playing on other sites? Easier to put more volume on stars, but if you get a nice rakeback deal and first deposit bonus plus very soft player pool (matters more at higher stakes) you can get a very nice winrate. Jnandez did that in his bankroll challenge, playing on microgaming.
    Anyways, wish you luck dude!
