Well, can't say I'm very proud of myself atm. This is now the third straight day in a row where I started my day out fine, got study in, began playing with focus and happy to put in a grind but ended the day more tilted than I was pretty much any day in 2016.

What triggered my tilt was internet problems, which may be somewhat understandabe but really I should handle it better anyway. Just really so fkn oi with getting rekt all session and then all of a sudden disconnecting in the best spot I've seen all day.

Anyways, there are no excuses. I ended up just openjamming my last 4 tables and closed the sites. Feel like a total ******* atm, not sure what to do with myself. Probably has something to do with quitting weed as well, I'm happy at least that is working out so far. Calmed down a bit now, gonna grab some food and might even put in some more study. Gonna try to honestly evaluate tomorrow if I even should be playing before I start anything, that said I really, really don't feel like taking a day off.

Oh and I broke my ****** chair as well, total idiot Hope to report back with something a bit more honorable next time, but I want to keep myself accountable for everything itt so there ya go

What's causing your internet problems? Sounds like a post I could've made 4 or 5 years ago to be honest. I used to suffer from terrible connection problems as a result of ****ty suburban internet at my mum and dad's. Eventually had to travel to grind because it was an unworkable situation otherwise.

Are you grinding wirelessly? If so get a long Ethernet from the router to your pc. If it's way more complicated and the issues are with your actual internet then obviously it's much harder to fix, but maybe you could look into upgrading? Fibre is usually very reliable, from what I remember maybe 1 or 2 dodgy days a year, if that. Unfortunately it isn't available everywhere, the less urban the more likely you can't get it.

I'd explore the possibilities (if there are any) because grinding on a bad connection, even just having that lingering in your mind is close to impossible and clearly you'll have some tilt built up from today. Might be best to just explore your options and do some work with the mental game of poker / relax and cool down for a few days.

Hey man, thanks for the post.

I'm not sure what the problem is, I am on wireless though it never really was an issue untill it started acting up like a week ago. Still, like yesterday, I'm usually able to just grind without problems but then after 5 hours of steady connection it just decided it was gg when I was holding AcKc on QcJcx lol.

Gonna give my internet company a call and see if they know what's going on with it. If I don't experience too many issues in general today I will end up opening tables in a few hours. Cooling down for a few seems like the better approach but I just can't see myself doing it atm.

ps: bit bummed about my chair now

Pulled back the month a little bit yesterday with a 6th in $27 deepstacks and this:



Will recap the month soon, putting in one more session for January to try and turn it into a profitable month. LFG

Re: LOLCh1p/One_Time184: The hopefully long road to reaching my full potential as an MTT pro

January in review

Results

Profit:





EV (will try to post this every month, no matter how it looks):



The good

* Made a real effort to study and improve

* Volume is okay for 8-tabling

* Put in an absolute ton of hours wrt poker-related stuff

* Grinded sober all month and mostly layed off weed

* Had quite a bit of exercise (shoutout to push-ups during breaks lol)

* Did not punt too many TCOOPs


The bad

* Made no profit

* Can still do a lot more study-wise, spend my time more efficiently

* Had tilt issues which was never much of a problem

* Got too whiny (like a *****)

* Got bitter about results a few times (like a *****)

* Used pokerstars chat a few times to vent (like a *****)

* Struggled to play A-game and struggled to deal with that (like a.. ah whatever)

* EV-line is not where I want it to be

* Had a hard time balancing between poker and life

* Had a hard time following TOS when I did go out to a party

* Didn't make much of an effort to be the best human I can be


The plan

* Mark at least 5 hands every day and review/discuss them in depth

* One full HH review every 2 days (at least 14 total for the month)

* Grind 650+ MTT's, the majority of them off peak

* ICMize at least 30 spots

* Watch 10+ RIO videos

* Keep a close look on abi/turbo ratio wrt bankroll

* Make a real effort to play as close to A-game as possible every sesh

* No browsing during poker

* Review at least 3 full HH's with someone else

* Work out a mutually beneficial coaching deal with who I have been talking to

* Try to find stuff I really want to do outside of poker, not just go out on random benders

* Look further into moving to Malta

* Do not post a SINGLE hand anywhere for whining purposes only

* Do not look at EV-line during sessions

* Be more positive about stuff in general

* Use the headspace app to meditate a little pre-session


Well, that's a whole bunch of stuff right there but will give it my all.

LFG February, GL 2+2ers!

Nice review. Despite results looks like you got a lot right off the tables and put yourself in the right spot to do well. Keep it up and the results will surely follow.

Re: LOLCh1p/One_Time184: The hopefully long road to reaching my full potential as an MTT pro

Booked a solid winning day today with these:





Shame I couldn't close anything, lost CL flip with 23 left in big27 as well. Ran pretty hot all day though. Could've played better too tbh, at one point I was high on caffeine and had big hands everywhere while my connection was acting up once again and that combination gave me quite some trouble focussing. Will do better next session. Gonna have a few beers with friends now and somehow try to review + play off peak tomorrow vamos

Re: LOLCh1p/One_Time184: The hopefully long road to reaching my full potential as an MTT pro

With this I'm truly becoming one of the only-when-I-win-posters but can't help myself:



Feels pretttty good to know it's still possible

https://www.boomplayer.com/22738645_F81B7A047D

Had this for chiplead with 20 left in big $7.50 right after the chop but obv had built up some tolerance so w/e

Will make a longer post with some more detail soon (have been losing day in, day out as you might be able to subtract from the first sentence above) but for now am gonna chill with a beer and a movie or sth
