Re: *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

went in with no expectations and thus managed to enjoy it a ton more than the entirety of the season.

had a massive lol today about all the memes tho double fun was had

obv the season as a whole was garbage relative to the expectations the show itself has set but what can you do, life s too short to spend it complaining about entertainment


______


was on the fence about playign today but found some motivation late in the day and fired a medium sized session. ran really weirdly, super hot early and anytime stacks got to a point where they became relevant i got totally rekt. lost a medium amount in rather hopeless fasion. sigh. owell. likely taking tomorrow off and back for a proper thursday session. peace

Re: *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

quite the ridiculous session. likely the biggest i ve ever played in terms of buyins made myself, certainly top three.

and i legit ran worse than i ever have during a session. ran -15bb/100 all day, ran all the things into one pip better things, nothing worked to the point where even my RFI stats went to crap, not sure if monsters under bed or wasnt even being dealt normal opening frequencies, it legit all went to sht, it was dreadful. i basically had 1 cash that came from a startign stack (had 2 itm day 2s on stars in the phases that ofc didnt pan out)

fortunately that one cash that i made ended up lasting until the end to absolutely save the day from being a 5 fig loser to being a 4fig losing day where the total starts with a 1. legit no idea how that even happened, i had lost all hope waaay before midnight. pretty ridic



gonna def have to digest this session so taking monday off most likely. cant wait to get on that nonseries grind, this has been thoroughly not enjoyable whatsoever. hope everybody and their mom goes to vegas so i can get on with my steady business, jeez

so ya SCOOP for me is basically over, cant imagine myself playing any today given i spent 2+ hours after the session yesterday being super mad despite having a lifesaver bink haha.

i guess the fact that had it been any normal month with no series i d have had a 5 fig profit month and its jsut the high stakes big fields that absolutely smacked me coupled with the shier ridiculousness of plaiyng 6.6k hands with a losing showdown and the tankiest redline i have ever produced. funny that, win a rather big score and be angry firstw world problems confirmed

good news is that games should go back to amazing for my taste going forward so gonna make an effort to play good volume till my holiday in mid june. i ll be playing higher than i have basically ever and the one good thing that came from ydays session is that its desensitized me a little bit to high stakes which is nice given they become softer and lower variance now.

i ve done a lot of work this month around my grindm and feel like i ve optimized my game selection, should be def interesting to see if it pans out. basic goal is to increase my ABI to 140$ over the summer and then be much more comfortable going into WCOOP wehre i plan to play more of the big things than i did this SCOOP. wont go into precize details as to how i m going to achieve this as countless hours went into it but hope i dont get completely rekt

prob back tomorrow for the classic 4pm grind sesh

peace

Was going to try and grind today but I slept through my intended wake up time by three hours. Clearly my body needs a bit more rest so skip today and play tomorrow

Re: *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

took a shot and playe dthe thrill today. but with graphs like this



i m afraid shots really wont be working out. made the final table ofr the 320$ gladiator but bowed out in 6th for not enough. good news is i really enjoy the new grind i m playing, dont htink i peaked above 14 tables all day but still managed a good number of mtts, buyins and hands. should be fun going forward. ofc kinda demoralizing when games are great but u get rekt many sessions in a row but gonna keep plugging away. 2 days off unless i play a super latenight session after dinner tomorrow as saturday is the CL final. prob back on sunday. peace

Re: *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

Yup itís quite withered these days. Which means itís winnable

Immediate setback today as I found out I basically signed a piece of paper saying I want special treatment in my surgery not too unlike getting an economy flight upgraded to first class. Something that my insurance doesnít cover. Now it turns out that itís my doc who also happens to be the surgeon that signed me up for this upgrade who benefits the most from this. So ya basically 5k out the window for absolutely fkn nothing. That will teach you to read the small print before signing sht huh, fml

Jesus that’s so **** man. Really sorry to hear that. This doctor sounds the absolute worst, can you not just rescind your request for first class surgery (whatever the fk that means...)

GG big 109. Extreme sad prizepool however!

Re: *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

Ye I donít think I can rly do anything as the reception of services referee was 5 months ago. Basically learned the lesson to read the paperwork before signing which funnily enough I always do in a super nitty way which means it was the smallest of small prints. The thing that got me through the day was knowing that last year the big surgery I actually got first class treatment and stayed hospitalized for 3 days and didnít pay said upgrade which in case they managed to screw me over like this year would have been 5figures easily and given the state I was in prior to that surgery they coulda wiped tables with me lol. Really stupid day altogether tho, thanks for the kind words
