CG in 2019, Grinding PPPoker to Robusto

Hey guys, going to attempt this again!

So last year I started off the year as a 2.50 SNG player and its been a pretty bumpy ride but we are at a place now where are playing a lot of 100nl and 200nl and shotting better games. Switching from MTTs to cash was a blessing and a curse for me but I think these games are so much nicer to grind then stars so just going to focus on lowkey printing.


Goals for the Year
  • Minimum 300k hands - This is due to only being able to 3 table on pppoker currently so its reasonable volume
  • 10k Life Roll - Have been grinding without a life roll cashout to cashout and it sucks, looking forward to getting **** together
  • Clear all debts - Would like to have a clean slate on everything and put myself in a real good position this year moving forward.
  • Get to 5/10 - Should be pretty doable on PP, some 5/10 games are unreal soft its just building the roll to stay in them
  • Get better at PLO - been working a bit on game recently and beating 100plo on the app but I believe its where majority of money is live and online for easy games, seems a logical choice
  • Go to at least 5 countries - Open to suggestions, need to see the world more!

Will be posting hands, thoughts and musings, look forward to networking with everyone and let's crush this year, currently not using a tracker but imagine this will change in the future

you too man, and its due to a limitation actually built into the PPPoker software, used to be able to use an emulator to circumvent this but since the latest app update this has broken.


Day 2 Results

-569.95 - the biggest loss I have ever had on PPPoker in a single day (still cant work out if I run good or the games are that easy), got deep in the 5 card PLO streets yesterday and couldn't hold, I think I'm going to stick to 4 card for now as I have a lot easier time understanding it and 5 card variance seems a bit wack, Will make sure to cap some hands to post as no tracker to do it that way.

And before anyone asks (actually had some DMs about this) no I am not playing on the NYPK union and I won't give up information about the clubs I am in for now (may change in future but for now don't want to get any more regs in there, apologies!)

cucu!

GL bro, sent PM!

Day 3 Results

+525.49, got most of it back and had a good session, by swapping to 4card instead of 5 card made a big difference imo, also the holdem games are running decent at the time.


Heres a fun hand;



Against an ultimate maniac boi, seems fine? (He showed K6o here no club or spade)

Re: CG in 2019, Grinding PPPoker to Robusto

Hey guys, time for an update boi!

Took a couple days off for mates 30th birthday and I don't play on mondays, had some shots in the winter series which didn't go great as is expected which kinda ate into profits but my results so far are;




All in all pretty meh week, games where slow so majority of volume came in at 60nl - this week already looks like things are picking up so happy days.

I will also be streaming every night this week at https://www.twitch.tv/yoobs174 from 8pm GMT onwards, so feel free to come hangout!


GLGL fellas

Winter Series is tournament series on Pokerstars which was over Christmas, has now ended bud. Having a look in my tracker its about 220 hands an hour ish, I would guess it varies from 200-250


Update

So I got a tracker finally sorted and also bought omaha tracker (lel probs should have got it a long time ago) and its nice to have hud back, primarily just for the ability to save HHs and study. will start posting more graphs as thats what we all really want to see lads and here is all my tracked results so far not including omaha, ev goes really weird at end because currently my HUD detects short deck as normal holdem meaning there are pots where I win flush over boat and it just kinda craps out and doesnt know how to display results, still cant complain





With short deck being launched on PP this week I have been absolutely murdering people, I actually played a decent chunk of short deck last year online and in a live game so way ahead of the curve at the moment, have a real good opportunity to print money now and people are just going nuts

have some hands bois


Always nice coolering the nitregs



bit speculative by QJ here Kappa



I think checking this flop is fine to trap from UTG, I presume at least one of them had 89?


Had lazyboy weekend this weekend, currently nursing hangover after being on the sesh till 9am, back to hard working tomorrow, glgl this week lads

Re: CG in 2019, Grinding PPPoker to Robusto

Update - Short Deck Top Keks

So I first started playing Short Deck around August 2018 in a private live game, then moving into playing on iPoker to get a better feel for the game. So you can imagine how excited I was when Stars and PPPoker launch 6+ Hold'Em within a 2 week window and games are great.

It's what I imagine people say PLO was like back in 2009 and no one had any clue what was going on. As such we have been absolute murder mode and on top of that we have moved up to primarily 1/2 and 2/4 on PPP now so after a slow start past few months with 80% of volume being 60nl we are enterting crusher mode.

I picked up a HUD as well (30 bucks a month fu PPPokerHud) so can start posting graph/results (and do hand study as well of course) so here is my YTD so far, bare in mind im missing all PLO/Short Deck hands and this is just NLHE

Year to Date So Far




And here are my actual results I track in a spreadsheet after every session (No HUD on stars for short deck either at the moment so have to do everything manually)





And then for some fun hands




Cooler with the T2o what can you do?



Always nice getting called 3 ways with worse


CUCU lads, glgl on the grind
