Funny to write this now as I m sick and doing exactly nothing but generally I mark hands that give me trouble in game and then as either part of a full study day or as a pre session warmup I go through them in bulk and retap the ones I canít find a solution to myself to run in pio in a separate session. And then itís just about using the output in the maximally useful way possible. To me that is by writing down everything i find out

Also funny to see people who think her parents had anything to do with her disappearance. "But the dogs smelled death!" just lol.

It isn't a must watch but it was interesting if you have the time to get through it all.

Peace

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

felt ****ty both friday and saturday so acutally didnt manage to get any study in bc of massive headaches anytime i treid to do anything that required brain usage

managed to kick myself in the butt today however and fired a reasonably large sunday session during which i pplayed decent but def not as well as during my pre get sick stretch. probably got a little rustly probably wasnt used to acting super quickly across my max table count.

ran pretty bad whenever i managed to get a stack going, showcasing once more why i fkn hate sundays:

33/3691 $109 bounty builder
28/4676 €50 scoop warmup

yay

taking tomorrow off most likely and firing tuesday

obv bricked every goal i set for last week bc i was sick rip

new goals for this week

[ ] dont get sick

[ ] cook all meals apart from 3 throughout the week

[ ] stick to my week layout

[ ] 4 sessions

[ ] review every day

[ ] make appointment with doc about my shoulder


pretty lame that for the last 2 weeks i have had some annyoing shoulder pains whihc have prevented me from even being able to get in my workouts at all. had hope itd just go away while i was sick but its only gotten worse, could be inflamed long biceps, could be issues with the screw i still have in there, prob will ahve to get scanned and go from there

inb4 surgery #3 in 12 months

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

decided to grind a bunch of strat today after a 12 hour session last night instead of forcing myself to start an unmotivated session at 8pm. strat has been enjoyable after a short hiatus which is great. left two writeups to do as a session warmup tomorrow and looking to play a decent sized session then.

its funny, after i wrapped up my reviews i stumbled upon my first and second pgc threads, chronicaling 2012 and 2013 and they are hilarious reads all the way (mostly because i was jsut such a massive tard lmao) but what really sticks out to me is that i used to be able to knock out 200hr of net play time in a single month, sth that i am entirely and absolutely incapable of even thinking about these days. if i get to 160 hrs in any given 30 day period i count myself a hard working guy.

#IhaveBecomeAnOldMAn

one month in particular late in 2013 i played 27 days out of 31. WTF

granted that was my very first wcoop and i probably havent felt this hungry to grind since that year but still def sth to think about when approaching grinding seasons like the next 6 weeks. starting later and playing more days consecutively is sth i ve lately both come up with and failed super hard to execute and apaprently sth that built the foundation of my entire MTT career.

maybe skipping grinds like i did today isnt the way to go, food for thought

to anybody still following since these days: without this forum and the contacts and friendship that resulted from these threads i wouldnt be who and wher i am today, so thanks and gl

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

hola. played like a beast today but ran so abysmally bad i m surprised i even made some runs at all. winrate was negative all day, BUT the mtt i look forward to playing every day rewarded my faith somewhat today:



palyed pretty wel HU and throughout the final tabel jsut nothing i coulda really done there



had this to make it a decently winning session afterall. guess its whining despite running okay hwen it mattered but hey coulda made 10k had i run normal today

back either tomororw or thursay and gonna for sure play saturday. going to try hard to get in another late session in between to make 4 grinds happen this week. peace and gl to the pgc heroes battling it out in their prop bet

had a really weird session today

started out crushing and then when i had a bunc hof stacks it was legit like somebody turned the doom switch on. lost every pot for about 2 hours straight and decided fk it i m not gonna let this get me down and fired every bird i could within my ABI to try and both get my ev winrate back into the black and give myself a few more shots at rostuckoing. managed both in almost the most glorious fashion imagineable:





shoutout to fellow thread reader crush.itokthx who took a debateable line on the bubble and i calle dwith a never fold hand and held vs his combo draw. he legit lost it and started spewing german abuse at me for legit a full hour.

cool down friend its just a card game

but until u do u got the glorious donkey tag

whne i said almost most glorious fashion i meant this :



was a super swingy final tabel but i think i played this one pretty well, took a couple nice spots and put some people in the hurt locker and avoided having the same be done to me. not much i coulda done HU, so happy with the score, especially after the dreadful middle part of the session.

also made day 2 in the big bird on french stars so gonna be firing a late night sesh tomorrow


month solidly in profit now as well. liekly playing one possibly two sessions before month is over. gl everybody

Didnít forget but busted in ten minutes without laddering. Had a nice chill day got a massage and my favorite soba noodles to start and then hung with the mrs and played 10 min of poker

Back for a large session tomorrow likely to wrap up the month unless I sleep well after and find Sunday million motivation late on Sunday

Peace

Great day mate, seems like you are killing it this year! Hope that the tattoo grief is worthwhile and you and the lady are doing better.

Thanks boys, wonít lie felt great and thanks kangal we re both on the health uptick

As for the tattoo, I found the guy at a tattoo convention yday and snap booked the full day today, my sleeve originally was done by a young artist in a pretty shabby part of Auckland New Zealand, while the design is great his execution was quite meh, this guy today is a Polynesian tattoo artist for over 30 years so perfect fit to retouch what I have and get it to look like what I want it to be. Done the first hour just now and itís like night and day compared to 3 years ago pain wise. Great find

Review time

[X] play four sessions
Did this in the best quality I have in a very long time, winrate was through the roof, also reviewed daily

Quote:
[? ] figure out a way not to lose all my shoulder progress
Saw my therapist this week and kinda figured out whatís up with the shoulder but was a bit too lazy for my liking wrt getting my exercise routine back up, gotta do better here

Quote:
[ ] sort out my finances and start getting ready paperwork
Massive fail

Quote:
[ ] cook most of the meals I eat (3 things outside or less)
Cooked a good bit but was lazier than ideal

Overall decent week effort wise, amazing week poker wise, gotta pay more attention to the health things next week

Will make goals for next week when I know how my arm will affect my grinding after today #DoubleArmCripple
