Re: june volume target for fifithecat

I can finally say I have made it a full week playing 1k sngs a day. The next little goal is to be able to say 10 days, the 2 weeks, and so on. I'm taking each day as it comes with just a little goal a couple of days ahead.

hahaha - stress getting to you John.....he was supporting/encouraging you - you display your play money total in your updates (approx 6k) - he is hoping your real money total surpasses that by month end.

They know eachother outside of this thread and he was surely just messing around.



GL John, you seem to be doing well so far! Although I really wish you would just deposit and play your normal stakes so you can actually win some money during this challenge. Seeing you play 16 hours a day for a week and make 300 dollars kind of makes me nauseous.

I've been nauseous now for 8 days. Have a little goal in my head to get the sharkscope top spot in the 1.50s, 3.50s and the next one up. My own little triple crown to aim for. Was going to mix in the 3.50s soon but noticed i need a couple hundred more for the 1.50s top spot first.

Yes I hope he takes it as a joke as it was intended. If he could play on Stars I'm sure he'd dent my roi.

Re: june volume target for fifithecat

lmao - as if playing 30,000 hypers in a month wasn't a big enough challenge.....now wants to play 30,000 hypers in a month and be Sharkscope leader...across multiple levels.....

Whatever happens - 8k games in 8 days is amazing

gogogo Great thread.

Re: june volume target for fifithecat

Just managed to finish 10 days in on the challenge. Checking emails and stuff for motivation yesterday and realised this was supposed to be a grinding goal initially so am not looking at my cashier for a while now and just concentrating on grinding the days out.

Re: june volume target for fifithecat

Yes, I just finished 15,000 sngs in 15 days.

I realise there have been no pics or updates in a while but my only coping mechanism left at the moment is to keep my head and just bang out as many games as I can. Tableninja is still opening my tables but I don't know for how long. I never thought I'd play so bad as I do at the moment. It's all down to "brain cloud" - my brain feels like there's a cloud around it, it's all out of thinking juice. I can't wait for July and to go back to playing 4 tables for a few days.

I realised that no one has actually acsked why i decided to do an intensive challenge like this.

A few weeks ago i paid $1600 for a coaching package on the hyper turbos. For the 20 days of May i played 100 3.50 sngs and had a 9-10% roi. In terms of hyper turbos a very small smaple indeed. I used up 3 of my 20 hours of coaching, but was not doing anything like the amount of effort i needed to in order to fully utiliuse this opportunity.

I had to do something to force myself to do some work. So here is what i thought at the end of may:

My name is John. John is lazy. John must die. (metaphorically)

I didn't like the John I was. I wanted to change and knew just saying "change" wasn't enough. I had to do something extreme.

To get rid of all the lazy habits i had accumulated i needed to completely vanquish them. The only solution i could see - replace the bad habits with a hard work ethic. Hence, I decided on doing this challaenge for an entire month.

How much easier is it going to be to play poker after this month?

I have a schedule planned for when July stars and am looking forward to learning/studying a lot and playing a lot of poker. I need to rebuild my game.

On July 1st there is a new John waiting for me. A hard working John. A John with no bad lazy habits. A John that has had hard work ground into him at a grass roots level. Let's hope I stick to the challenge and get to meet him.

I think he's dead now already after 15 days of 1,000 sngs per day so I see the rest of the month (or how long the $50 bankroll keeps going) as akin to me jumping up and down John's dead corpse to make sure he doesn't come back.
