Grinding SNEx2+ in 2013

Hey everyone!

I'm trying to get Supernova Elite this year on pokerstars by playing 6-18man sngs while i still go to school

Lately I've been struggling at the tables a bit, and its hard to keep up the volume when you runbad. I do have a blog setup found in my profile but even though it has substantial amount of readers, there is not enough back and forth like on a forum.

The games are really tough because everyone thinks they will be the new SNEs. A lot of regs are terrible though, but still, if 14+ out of 18 man are regs its gonna be hard to win money.

My mindset has been terrible the last few days, and I'm randomly going off in chat against terrible regs, telling them how terrible they are, which is obviously the dumbest thing u can do. I'll make a bet that the first 5 times someone sees me berating a reg in chat, make a screenshot if ur playing at my table and u will get the buyin in ur account.

Live@pompeii can be the judge if we are not sure if its a real berate or not if he doesnt mind!

Ok now for some stats:

My results pre rakeback this year:





now without highstakes


As you can see, i run terrible at the supertiny highstakes sample. Im confident that I beat those because i select at the 200+ and all the games I joined were softer than a standard 30 or 60, which by the way, are really retarded, million regs in every single one of them. It tilts me that regs that are born lucky there entire life like entim bink every 300 that runs, or even worse, terrible regs like maxbracht or frutilupes are running hot and I just blank blank blank (26 in a row now), but thats the name of the game I guess. I will refrain from playing them right now untill I've won some money at the lower stakes.


VPP wise (most important!), Im currently at 190k vpps, which is a bit ahead of pace, so thats all good, and also worth almost 20k if i make SNE rakeback which I will.

Trying to average out aroud 100k vpp a month for the first few months.

Thats all for now

run good everyone

Fast forward to 2013: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...postcount=1196

My advice to anyone considering taking Quad up on this bet.. Don't waste this **** at some random $15 game. Get some value and wait to catch his verbal spew at 60s+ plz.

Dont really track it. Def now its lower then it will be in a week/few weeks because I'm dropping my average stake from 42-45 to 32-35 to get some confidence back.

Cool, will be following

+1 to the first bit, it's a bit demoralising playing with no fish...
But everyone will be feeling it, right? Def times you can
exploit regs that are tilted because of the quality of the games.

Hey, it's not just you, I don't run hot hs! I've played 50 >$300 in my
life and -18k.
Fwiw I think frutilupes>>>>>maxbracht, but maybe that's
because he plays extra aggro against me or something.

re: Grinding SNEx2+ in 2013

lol,
everyone is crying how regfested 18 are, yet, when I scope decent regs that i used to play 16$ a couple years back, i always see graph sky-rocketing for last 6-10 months.
Plus the fact that entim is now playing and crushing highest stakes speaks for itself

that is just IMO = post black friday AND May changes (that pissed many regs) games had to become a lot easier coz everyones graphs goes like __/ since then.

gl yo, you were good from what i remember ;d but most sympathy goes for buschapa with whom i grew up from 6.50 to 16, and his game I respected the most (cose it was similiar to mine ), and look how he is doing last year or 2... touche i didnt pursue 18mans xd

re: Grinding SNEx2+ in 2013

do you really think you know it better then me on how hard the 18s have become

I play 300 of them everyday. its just not true. And please, just do not react on this by showing a few graphs going up, thats not 'proof'

the reg fish ratio is retardedly bad, esp since beginning of 2012. I do expect them to soften up a bit hopefully. The majority of 30+ regs is down pre rakeback this year.

re: Grinding SNEx2+ in 2013

i am not talking about now, i am talking about data from close to one year

i dont care much, not even gonna bother to change filters at stars to have a look at lobbies. But sole fact that game launches with 14-15 players whom you consider regs speaks itself about quality of most of those regs not understanding basic math behind profitability of a game :> unless all of them think they are new spacegravy having super egde over rest, which doesnt seem to be the case from what you r sayin` (losing pre rb by most)

you win a decent bit, id doesnt seem like you should care much about it, and chillax, days of having less than half of regs/break even regs at any sng are long gone

re: Grinding SNEx2+ in 2013

Games are beatable if you select & you're among the best, pretty much like any other SNG. Looking over stats will give you a slanted view though imo. Regs that are struggling are much more likely to hide their stats. While the lucky ones / crushers usually can't help but brag.

There's also a ton of weird spots that can really f you over if you're not careful, so if you just jump in expecting to win...

12,695 -$1.57 * $43 * -2% -$19,965 * Tilt 68 PokerStars SNG Only

re: Grinding SNEx2+ in 2013

I wasnt talking about 2011. Also not about 6 regged games, 10 is fine. And I gave reasons why they are so hard atm.

Thank you, started out better then i thought but now in a nasty BE because of the highstakes

If anyone has any specifici questions feel free to ask, ill post a little summary of my poker 'career' later.

I was thinking about changing it actually, but i guess it can serve as an all around threadsaver. Melanie Iglesias or something like that, captured from the flipbooks
