and this

sup. havent played since last update, been grinding the couch the pokemons the poker vids and the physio. recovery is def coming along nicely but today obv got another semi setback, by being told that at least one of the two screws i have in my shoulder will have to be surgically removed. i have the option of doing it this year or january and decided on january bc i ve had way too much sht on my plate this year but tbh i think its smarter to put it into this year jsut to start 2019 off fresh with nothing looming that could fk it up. that said this procedure technically is a very small thing (arthroscopy) where they open my scar take out the screw and stitch me back up. according to my doc i ll have a bit more pain but will be free to move my arm around as i am now so thats kinda why i decided on january. given my luck wiht 'small procedures' this year tho i m not sure thats the best decision. will get a call from the hospital to confirm the dates and will just wing it then i guess. january being winter mtt series time doesnt help in that aspect either. so ya

spa was postponed to this weekend so i wont play till sunday when i ll hopefully be back reenergized and fresh. gonna grind some study until then to get some new fresh ideas in my head. not like much can be salvaged from this month aynway in the way of profits so not gonna push it when i dont feel it. dont plan any trips home before xmas - turns out my grandma was the bigger pull compared to my siblings (i m prob going to hell for that) - so got all of actober november and chunk of december to grind things out on a steady pace.

peace

Re: *** blakkman08 2018 goals and progress thread ***

hi.

spa was amazing and i got back the itch to actually grind out some volume. so i came back and willfully skipped the sunday grind which has been an amazing decision for volume because i ve played 3 sessions by now this week (monday, wednesday and thursday) all full sessions starting at 4pm gridning through till 2am, each totalling about 4k in buyins and better games than sunday has. this grind will allow me to play more volume at likely higher roi than the other grind would without the risk of burnout and lower variance. pretty neat combo tbh. will see if i manage to play saturday as planned as i will get on ze beers tomorrow, so maybe i ll torture myself through a sunday grind followed by monday cuz i hate tuesdays so would have to be monday. we shall see

also i fkn finally managed a bink for the first time since what has to be may



wont lie that felt great

Spoiler:


started doing weekly goals again but doing them offline in my phone same place as i track my expenses and other things. but man setting goals that structue a week and hitting them feels great. would recommend that to everybody.

peace

Fk yeh, nice bink mate. Glad it you enjoyed it.

Understand ur dilemma over your shoulder.

Also seems v unlikely you end up in hell lol. Think there is probably a long list of people waiting to go in and you'd seem out of place on that list !

Mid week grinds ftw! Nice updates mate

Re: *** blakkman08 2018 goals and progress thread ***



make that another. nice to 1table some b owl for 2 hrs to salvage a garbage session into a winner. still only small winner but def better than a 2k loser

set goals and hit majority of them this week which felt great. gonna continue that practice. debating playing monday or some weird hybrid of peak and offpeak days with tomorrow off. will either be mon-wed-thu/fri-sat/sun OR tues-wed-fri/sat-sun but going for 4 sessions again. slightly lowballed the abi goal i set which was 70$, pretty sure i hit like 66$ but that was mostly on purpose, been actively lookignto play sessions that are wrapped around getting solid volume in over palying high stakes after a bad start which would result in overall less invested with more stress. gonna prob keep that up till i get a few more solid sessions under belt.

this is extreme deja vu to where i was at ABI and mentality wise around liek april this year. so lets hope the same trajectory happens minus the shoulder thing

peace

haha i do enjoy them too believe me

i aim to play about 60$ abi right now. it was higher but i made the decision to drop down a little and up my vo÷ume instead. should make for less stressful sessions and give me some much needed practice. i guess i get aroun 4k in buyins every session and in a perfect world that would mean 1k$ per session. but wtf is perfect world amirite

________


had a blip in the matrix session yesterday where nothing seemed to go right
and more of the same today:



cant fkn close the big HU



jk vamooooooo

most likely skipping sudnay and palying another four offpeak sessions this week. hit the majority of my poker goals this week and going to hit all my non poker goals tomorrow ( need to exercize 2x more and do some home chores). failed at cooking 3x but the main reason was that i cooked too much and on friday had still food left from wednesday. so not sure if that counts as the main reason is to cut down on ordering food. cooking tomoorw whihc will be the 2.5th time haha

gl to all the heroes tomorrow
