Paying off Med School with PLO

Pretty much a 2p2 newbie here but I am making this thread to track my journey but also keep myself accountable and keep myself motivated to the best of my abilities.

GOAL: Pay off as much of $120k med school loans during my next 4 years of school to walk out as debt free as possible.

BIO:
I've been playing poker for 2 years or so now with a little $4k profit grinding on Ignition and 1/2 charity rooms out where I live but nothing too substantial but I have the next 3-4 months free to grind as much as possible before I have to decrease my playing hours during school.

Once school starts it's going to be tough but I am planning on putting in 2.5 hours a day 5 days a week and then one study session on the weekends to fix any leaks and problems.

I have a PLO coach and have been working with him for the past few weeks to help get the fundamentals down for the game and will continue to get feedback from him and learn.

He is also staking me 50/50 right now and I am going to utilize these next months to improve my game with his help.


Starting BR: $1000 playing PLO 25 and will move up as I get more comfortable and when BR allows

Feel free to let me know if I'm missing anything or if there is more you guys would like to know either about me or the goal itself!

Re: Paying off Med School with PLO

Have been trying to increase my volume over the past 2 weeks and trying to balance out studying time as well.

Right now studying about 1-2 hours a day and then supplementing that with playing. Figured out preflop ranges but I still feel as though I need to modify them. I'm opening up too wide in EP and flatting 3bets OOP too often as well.

Have the next two weeks off so looking to really step of volume to around 1K hands/day.
