~~ CHALLENGE DAY 5 ~~

Hi guys, today it's been a good day as well, I'm feeling more confident about hitting those 90+ cEV dialy, so I tought about pushing myself a bit more, since it looks like I can keep up with the challenge, I'll increase the number of minimum games per day to 65 starting day 8 of the challenge, and increase them again from third week ahead from 65 to 80.

I think I can handle those increases and still beat the level consistently, we'll see.

Here's the graph, may the variance be with you brothers.



Cheers!

~~ CHALLENGE DAY 7 ~~

Hi guys!

I think today has been the worst poker day I've ever played in terms of EV, seriously, I've never ended a sesh under the 0 mark, not to talk about a full day, I think I deserve to be punished with 2 strips for what I did today.

My week cEV it's now around 70 when it was up to almost 90, and that puts my beard in danger.

The silver lightning tho is that I took home a x120 and that kinda makes this day a bit better, disappointed about my performance anyway.



I want you guys to decide which part of my body should be punished for the graph below, so check out this link https://goo.gl/forms/k5HL04WCU1fmdfxt1 and vote to help my GF choose where to put the torture things this time.

@abecede: I didn't expect the majority of people willing to see my butt, I'd vote upper back of the leg for sure if I were you, my GF told me that it hurts a lot so... I guess there's where I'll be putting the thing next time

~~ CHALLENGE DAY 8 ~~

Hearts are red,
Diamonds are blue,
I'm a ****ing fish,
So are you

Yep, it's starting to look like a trend, me losing the challenge everyday.

Aaaaand nope, you're not voting again, I'm not trusting you guys after you betrayed me last poll haha

However, here's today's graph, it started badly, then got better around second half, but it wasn't good enough so I'll be suffering yet another punishment.

Well I have to keep working, that's all for today's entry guys, may the variance be with you.



Cheers!

~~ CHALLENGE DAY 9 ~~

I think that I deserve a "Free from punishments" card for today's run, I beaten all my records, damn it felt soo good after last two days downswing.

Actually, I have a screenshot of PokerStars awarding me with a "no punishment card" for my EV record, and I will be able to use it next time I fail the challenge, no kidding, legit 100%.



Well not a lot more to say, thank you guys for following me on twitter and disliking my YTB videos, I appreciate that

~~ CHALLENGE DAY 11 ~~

Today I started off pretty huge, kicking some fish asses as you can see below!



But after that, I had a stupid argument in Facebook with some random friend about a topic that pisses me off and from there on my head was completely off, tho I've beaten the challenge today, I'm pretty disappointed with my performance since I feel it could have been way way better.



However, as you can see below, there's always a silver lightning so today hasn't been that bad in the end.



Said that, wanted to remind you that starting off tomorrow I'll be increasing the minimum dialy required days for the challenge from 50 to 65 to make it a bit more interesting :P

May the variance be with y'all

Cheers!

~~ CHALLENGE DAY 12 ~~

Sup' guys!

Day 12 completed successfully!... Today I've beaten my records again, yes I'm still on fire, but I guess is not that hard if I'm just playing 5s but whatever haha, I'm still happy and proud of myself!



In this entry I wanted to share with you guys an awesome hard and complex hand I really struggled with, maybe you can help me figure out what would've been the best play. I've been hours and hours using flopzilla to solve this puzzle but man, no way.



However haha, despite the brilliant start I didn't hold those numbers for too long, but the day still ended up pretty well.

As you know from today I'm playing 65 spins instead of 50, I felt a bit unfocused when reaching the 50 spins mark and it was hard to keep my game disciplined and EV+, I think It will take a few days for me to adapt to the new "minimum" volume but I'll be doing fine soon!

Here's today's graph!

~~ CHALLENGE DAY 13 ~~

Today was a bit hard tbh, when luck is not on your side things get serious LOL, I was around 40 cEV for nearly 70 spins until I hit the turbo and started going up. For a moment (actually all day) I tought I wasn't going to make it today. It hurts just to think about how painfull it would've been to not hit 90 cEV haha, however, I MADE IT, so I'm safe.

So far I'm at 10 wins 3 loses, let's keep it up and see if we can make our month graph hit 90 cEV as well, because my beard is at stake and I don't want to shave it

Well here's today's graph!



And here's this month's graph so far!



Cheers!

~~ CHALLENGE DAY 14 ~~

It happened again, I tried to comeback, but this time I wasn't good enough, or let's say that gods of variance were not gentle enough, damn it!

Here's today's graph, you can send me your condolences to fish_of_fire_666@potmail.EV, thanks



I'll upload the god damn punishment tomorrow I guess, damn it I was doing so well!, I'll have to pay my arrogance with pain!

Cheers!

~~ CHALLENGE DAY 15 ~~

Worst poker day of my entire career, seriously, I hated every sesh I played today, coolers everywhere, people hitting nuts on turn when I hold second nuts, stuff like that. TERRIBLE.

I wasn't on the mood to make the punishment video today but I'll make a double punishment video tomorrow before playing to avoid "not being in the mood" for it next time.

Well as always here's the graph.

~~ CHALLENGE DAY 16 ~~

The universe seems to be in peace with me and now that the variance goddess is on my side it's time to fix the last 2 days mess.

It looks that the bad run comes to an end today (I hope so). See below the epic comeback from -50 cEV to +90 without playing too many spins above the minimum.

Damn it, feels good to be back!





Cheers!
