4-5) 888 / wina cant decide

b) sites sorted by perceived profitability

1) french stars (biggest buyin doesnt have reentries)
2) wina (higher rake and reentries)
3) 888
4-5) Party / normal stars (cant decide, party has less rake and overlays but is way reggier)

note how somehow i still enjoy plaiyng on the sites more than the sites i think i make more money at. brains be weird

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

nice winning streak, keep it up!

why do u choose reggy games such as 55-109 with 60-100 ppl gtd rather than playing b22 bb33 type stuff that make us at least same amount of money with way softer lineups as well ?
do u think bigger buyin always generates more $/game ? or is it a personal preference to play small fields?

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

i like winning tournaments regularly. if u give me a 109 where i make 12$ vs a 6000 player 22 where i make 12$ i will gladly take the 109 every time

its def personal preference and i can see why others play the otehr games but plaiyng against tougher competiting while i m in the process of oving y abi from midstakes to proper high stakes def cant hurt if my ev is the same

also they finish much quicker allowing me to possibly play 1.2 of those small 109s in the time that the 22 occupies my screen space

Have you considered GG and WPN? I think GG fits quite well with your hours. WPN tends to start a bit later but some good value on there for sure.

yea potato patato

i mean i ll try any site with mtts but its hard to get an offering that makes me want to skip some of my current games for others on a site that doesnt allow huds

____

funny, wasnt reaaally planning on playing but in the afternoon i got a rush of motivation and after oding all the chores that needed doing jumped into a 'smaller' session. its kinda funny, not even 4 months ago a small session would be in the 1.5-3k buyin range and without firing anything that runs late or is expensive i still got 4.1k in buyins. perceptions be funny

anywy i broke the winning streak today by bricking pretty much evrything. was due to happen at some point anyway really and good thing is that apart from one hour where i had fairly low focus (whihc i noticed and adjusted) i played very well once more.

not sure whats going on with grinding, i guess i ll skip tomrorow to play a liveament and do some reviews, and play a bigger session on thursday. friday will be a bday party so the 4 sessions this week basically rely on me not being hun over on saturday. would be w/e really i ve palyed pretty hard lately and there wont be any forcings to play if i dont feel 100% up to that. have the option of playing liveament on saturday too which is plan b if i dont fire.

peace

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

Lmao I did absolutely nothing at all today and it was amazing. Everytime i get the chance to play some live poker I look forward to doing so because all my friends have been playing and doing well at it and I want me some glory too but last minute I decide that being a sloth on the couch in sweatpants and tank top Is a much better way to spend my day

Owell

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

Hola, got a big case of old man hangover today so sadly skipping second of four planned sessions this week. Bummer to lose some of that momentum I had from the previous week but itís okay had fun last night which honestly isnít a given when I go out drinking so counting it as a win. Being that I m ded on the couch i guess time to write a review of last week

goals for upcoming week

Quote:
[ ] play 4 sessions
Played two

Quote:
[X] shoulder exerceize 7x
Did this and had massive progress in range of motion this week!

Quote:
[X] cook all meals i eat apart from up to 2 breakfasts and one dinner
Ordered hangover pizza and had asian for one dinner while cooking the rest. Loving the routine I am in regarding cooking
Quote:
[?] on off days run 4 sims or more

[X] on grind days run 2 hands between breakfast and session start
Again didnít count but on the two grind days I did I def did what u had planned and did a TON of study overall this week so again happy about the study effort. I m getting to the point where instead of running spots i get to go through my written notes as a sort of quiz to refresh points I may be rusty on as a warmup routine which is great. Not quite there yet tho

Quote:
[X] make writeups of every hand i run (unless its super straight forward/ same strat as a hand i wrote up before, then add that to that file instead
Did this and happy I did

____

So ya looks like my motivation to grind and ability to get volume took a slight hit this week after hitting a high last week which is fine, I m keeping track of sessions played vs sessions deliberately skipped in order to be able to make better planning decisions going forward, so long as I keep weeks like the two where I did nada to a minimum I will be fine.

Next week gf goes traveling again so I ll try and up my volume to at least three sessions, (sadly) donít have the full week to play as a friend has semi unfortunate holiday timing so I go to Bratislava for a short trip on Monday afternoon coming back the day after possibly in time to grind.

Had a decision to make whether I play Sunday and travel Monday or vice versa and am going for Sunday to keep my time away from the tables to a minimum given my last session was on I think Tuesday.

Goals given I go traveling are

[ ] play 3 sessions

[ ] do 10+ hours worth of study

[ ] cook my meals on every day starting Wednesday (empty fridge now and likely no time to do groceries till Wednesday)

[ ] shoulder exercise daily

Peace and gl on the weekend grind

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

hola

played today as planned and had my first aidsrun session in what feels like ages def deserved after the sick heat i have experienced lately and not minding it, everything i had control over checked out throughout the session.

apart from possibly one hand which i marked and will go over soon. taking off to Bratislava tomorrow for 1.5 days to meet a friend and then have 2 more sessions to get undermy belt before friday. gonna try and go for a late tuesday session and a full thursday sesh as i have a day 2 on tuesday anyway. ideally i ll squeeze in another on wednesday but not gonna push it.

peace

Hey nice part about having good focus ik your last session except for one hour, but then u noticed and adjusted!

Also wp for skipping live to chill in tank top. I guess when a normal work day is 12-15hrs doing nothing is soooooo good sometimes

Very glad your shoulder is on the mend too.

The classic super hard grind when the gf leaves is so true. Can't ever get any work done with mine around either, her work-from-home days are the worst lolol.

LOL. so yeah i forgot about this one


had a blast yesterday in bratislava met my friend and a friend fo hers and we just did a bunch of sightseeing and drinking all over the place, was real nice and also got lucky with the weather. did a bunch more exploring today and grabbed some food and i got on a train back for no real apparent reason (in my mind i was going back in order to maybe play but maybe not and given my state i was leaning heavily towards not)

got home slumped onto the couch and didnt do anything until around 11:30 pm i forced myself to use the waning hours of the day to do some study so that my pre session strat part tomorrow doesnt have to be super tedious

got on the pc and logged into winaamx and saw this



burn money burn!

good thing i only had 15bb and wasnt even ITM yet so honestly, woulda taken this if asked ahead of time. still LOL

so ya back home, somewhat recovered from the hangover and doing a bunch of strat now.

the two guys i met in bratislava are coming to vienna tomorrow for breakfast, ahve physio after that and gonna grind after that

LOL

was in a pretty weird spot today, dint have any food in the house by the time i wanted to start my session (3 pieces of toast and tiny little leftovers from last night's food. was either go shopping for groceries or order... OR like a true degenerate grinder go ahead and fire a 12 hour session without sortign any more food. obv went for that and despite my stoomach making the loudest noises ever i played really well and ran decent enough to make not 3 not 4 not 5 but 7 final tables lol

obv ran aids once making them , didnt manage to come better than 3rd in any but was enough to make a nice profitable session anyway

will play tomorrow probably startign a little later to complete the volume goal for the week

peace

not the worst thing playing poker hungry as you are generally more alert, as your body's senses are heightened in search of food
