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

Do mtt pros want the payouts in these bounties to be so insanely top heavy? I don't really know a lot about these progressive bounties since they came along post US shut down.

Congrats on the score!

No, that's some insane variance road. Like u end up in 30bb deep HU w another reg and payouts are like 10k for first and 3k for second. just bollocks

Honestly I m a massive proponent of making first and second place payouts equal so that the HU is for bounties only. 888 and Winamax have that in place. That said if I m gonna ein pkos, might as well be in a structure where I get a quarter of the entire prize pool amirite

Agreed. Again sth that at least party and I think Winamax have implemented. Seriously imo every site is a better place to play poker than stars these days (despite winning that mtt lol)

slept badly last night because i figured since gf is gone i might try sleeping without earplugs, turns out i sleep a bazillion times better with earplugs in regardless of outside noise. almost rekt my entire day but managed to get in a powernap and played a session as planned.

was rewarded with a gazillion runs and a nice little cheeky bink to make soem profit wrapping up another great month:



goals review after saturday as usual. taking tomorrow off for a nice steak dinner with the mrs

peace

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

hola! played another session today and played the best poker i have played in weeks or months. everyhting clicked, focus was super high, was running great as well, found all the spots etc. just everythign came togetther and wont lie it felt great to play 7k hands at A+ level

sadly i couldnt close any of the deep runs i had but i made 5 final tables so still had a great session regardless gonna catch some pokemon tomorrow during the day then paly a later than normal sunday session. wanna maintain a chance at playing monday so dont wanna burn myself out. peace

Quote:
[X] play 4 sessions
did exactly that, 4 winning sessions at that
Quote:
[X] start day off running 2 sims if playing, 3 sims if day off
overall i def ran enough to make this one, had a few sessions where i simmed 8 hands or so so cumulatively prob hit this
Quote:
[ ] on off days run 2 more sims and make detailed writeups / go through all the non pio marked hands in my backlog
did about 8 writeups. not enough to hit this as total should have been 20 total. was a lofty goal for sure and happy i m getting into the habit of doing these
Quote:
[X] shoulder exercizes first thing every day
did this
Quote:
[ ] cook all of the food i eat this week (one breakfast exception)
had one kebab to celebrate my big bink and steak last night so technically a miss by exactly one meal, again super happy i stuck to this and didnt get lazy

overall was a phenomenal week, did most of the things i set out to do, and despite sleeping badly twice still managed to ahve productive days. ran amazing, long may it continue

best of luck to everybody tomorrow

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

How many mtts do you have running at the same time in any given session?

Do you play every type of speed/structure?

Do you fill up with mtt sngs like 90-180mans?

What games would you recommend grinding if someone was trying to get into some micro/low stakes mtt grinding for learning and roll building?

Sorry for questions but after reading this thread I felt like this was a positive place to ask. Nice thread and gl in 2019.

12-16 never more. Ideally 12 but peak time 16 canít be avoided
Quote:

I skip most hypers and never play HU mtts. Only holdem.
Quote:

No. I play in five sites, there sometimes is so much to play I have to skip 50$ mtts

Regspeed 8max mtts on partypoker because I love the site and 8max is great

hello people. had a weird session. came 15th in the $530 bounty builder high roller which stung, then came 6th in the $320 pko on party which also stung

and then had this



which made the pain go away.

did a nice pre session warmup and played like an absolute machine, obv ran well to make these runs but i m not sure if i played better on saturday or today, it was really close. super happy with how i have been playing (strategy wise) lately and obv super happy to extend this upswing a little more

may or may not fire another session tomorrow
