MTT Rec to Reg?

About me
18 from Canada
Have been playing casually for a year or two.
Decent understanding of the game and some complex theories, just recently started taking it seriously.


My goals:
I know a lot of people post these threads and the number one response is "Don't put your life into poker this young, it's really tough these days" Which isn't what I'm going to do. I took a year off highschool and have just been hanging out & playing some cards. My goal is to just have fun while playing but to remain profitable and have a nice graph to post. I plan to play throughout university and see where I am at the end of that.

I was going to make this thread last week since that was when I started playing again but I was just super busy and never got around to it. I only play on 888 so that's where all my volume is from.


I wont be updating daily because I am quite busy in real life, but when I'll try and update the thread twice a week.


Updates & Graphs

Some hands

Re: MTT Rec to Reg?

Todays graph, I played pretty poorly throughout the first half of the day, pretty happy with the way I played towards the end, however I ran terribly all day.
Bubbled the final table of the $55 6-Max Hurricane. Played a few $30 blasts and won a 10x but lost a few others. Decided to try out some of the HU/6Max Super Turbo SNGs and was quite happy with how soft they were but I ran horrible.

Been super busy this week and haven't had a chance to play. Got home late tonight and no tourneys were running so I played like 10 SNG's and decided to head off.

Todays graph, ran pretty bad in tourneys all day long. Played some higher stakes 6max sngs at the end of the day which went well.

Appreciate the post. I'm not really one to let poker get in the way of anything. I played throughout high school but I decided to quit in grade 12 to be more social and finish up a good year with lots of free time. I have no intentions to be playing "full time" during university, if I have a project I'll do that and play poker when I'm 100% free.

Priorities:School>Social Life>Poker

Re: MTT Rec to Reg?

Haven't played too much as of recently, been super busy with school applications. Something I came across the other day that I thought was kinda cool is that I popped up on sharkscope LBs. I understand it's a really small sample size but it's still cool for me

Re: MTT Rec to Reg?

Just a quick update as I haven't been posting much.

Went on a bit of a downswing and decided to take a break. Mainly from the fact that I just had to pay tuition for college which is upcoming and it was a huge chunk of my roll.
