I knew this was not much but I also knew I can just grind it out and hopefully make some money. My whole plan on this was to take 2 months off my "normal" life, completely forgetting about all the stress I have to deal with in my real life and solely focus on poker with the plan of improving A LOT and making enough money so I can finally move out and live on my own back home when I start uni this september (Living expenses are really high where I live, around 2.3k$ estimated).

So as I went there I just started grinding 50NL and putting in tons of volume with a lot of success. After a week at my hotel I got in contact with an agent to rent an appartment, which quickly worked out so I was able to find an appartment right away for 420 Euros with everything included (wifi, electricity, water, maid service...). It was a really nice appartment and I was really surprised to get it for such a cheap price.
Spoiler:


At the time I allowed myself to move up to 100NL already. I played a lot of hands per day (around 7k in avg, zoom ofc). I was really enjoying playing poker allday long every day at the time, so I was really motivated to put in more hands. I once had a day where I played 14k hands for an epic 18BI rostucko. I just kept playing and putting in more volume with decent results and I switched to reg tables for some time but quickly realized that I prefer zoom. I also got coaching which helped my game quite a bit esp. on HUD-making and explo-folding and also helped me to have someone looking me over my shoulder just so I know that I'm not going in the wrong direction.

I easily felt like the best (not one of the best) 100nl zoom regs at the time. wasn't close. So after about 100k hands at 100NL i moved up to 200NL which was a pretty new limit for me so when I first played it I had some mental problems because it's a lot of money involved but got rid of that by the time I got in more hands.

So for the last month or so I just kept grinding 200NL and really improved my game a lot by talking to other players. I was also really lucky to have a beast joining one of my skype groups that is regurarly talking strat to worse players than him. I realized how little I know about this game, esp. in terms of game theory.

In the last 2 weeks in Malta I got hit by a "downswing", which was essentially more of a breakeven stretch / slightly losing over a pretty decent sample and I got pushed to my mental limits, just losing day in and day out. I started working mainly on my mental game in the last 2 weeks due to that with doing warm-ups / closing sessions and mental game HHs etc. and I will keep doing that because I felt like this is at the moment where I can gain the biggest edge for smallest effort (I also broke a lot of things due to mental issues). Those also made me lose my motivation and I kind of got sick of playing poker in the last few days so I took the last 2 days in malta off poker.

So that was pretty much my experience with cashgames in malta. I also played a lot of MTTs and made a bit of profit there but nothing special.

I know a lot of you guys and a lot of my non-poker friends are thinking "wtf is this creepy dude doing alone in malta playing only poker and not going to the beach / going out every day?", but honestly I don't care about this. I was going to Malta to play poker and immensly improve my game and make some money and I think I definitely achieved that and I'm happy with how it all went.

Stake breakdown of my main-stakes:

Spoiler:


I made about ~28k$ with CG + MTT + RB

So all in all, I enjoyed being there and playing poker every day but in the end I was really looking forward to coming back home and meeting friends and going out again and I will definitely keep playing poker a lot but maybe not as much as I have played in Malta, as I really have developed a huge passion for it

This will also be my last update ITT because I don't see benefits in having a PGC thread anymore, at least not for this year.
