Challenge Days: 43&44


Hallo everyone,

@Everest17
TY man and I agree with you about the rake.

@GoogledYou
TX mate! I encourage you to do so

@Lumpizaver
Hey Lumpi! How are things? Long time no see.
About my WR it was as show on the picture at that point 2bb/100 with over 1k hands/hour. Currently it shrinked to only 1bb/100 but EV say 4bb/100. But I think both are false and I like to rate myself so I would say that I beat the games around 3bb/100 even playing +1k hands/hour. But yeah currently things look not so good in terms of WR.

@kerwinty
The point was just to show how much more of a bigger WR you needed to have on this limits(normal tables comparison to Speed) in order to achieve the same hourly if you play the same amount of tables. So basically in my case was that I play 7 Speed tables, play 1k hands/hour and have 2bb/100 WR. In order to have the same hourly(w RB) while playing 7 normal tables I would need to have a +8bb/100 WR.

@TendGate
TY mate for the compliments but I don't have a sick WR but rather a decent hourly


Already enjoying festivities? Guess the online felts are full of recreational players and I was really looking forward to grind today 12k hands and maybe already reach this month 100k hands on NL50 to get a better picture but guess what variance played with me in which of course I lost.

Yesterday I was able to somewhat take the better end and still managed to book tiny profit although variance was doing fairly good in terms of not letting me win(9BI below EV). Anyway went optimistic into this session and it started good until things turned around and I ended up pretty fast into stop loss. Checked the hands already there is no spew, here and there were probably better lines I could have taken but in the big picture I simply couldn't win AI and run into a couple of coolers.

Yesterday I had problems 8 tabling so I went back to 7 tables mostly and when I got tired ended up playing 6 but today there were no problems in 8 tabling. Anyway this are the results:





Luckily I got some random 250$ bonus(I call it this way because I don't know why I got it) so the cashier didn't hit a bigger punch:



Anyway due RL issues and events I don't know if I will be playing on the 2 next remaining days. If I won't I will at least try to post a monthly update and maybe some year summary.

Anyway take care guys and GL at the tables!

Post December Report + Yearly Thoughts

Monthly Report: December


@MrAAKK
TY mate! I played on Nl2 8 normal tables and 4 Speed tables on NL5. About the style it doesn't matter as long as you are aware the closer you are to the blinds the looser you can play.

@Eu.Era
I hope you will find below in the text the answers to your questions. If not just reply so I will try to put it into my next post. I currently play 8 tables of Speed mostly.

@OlyBrah
TX!


So fellow poker players,

Already bought the assets needed for the tonight? Or some of you already celebrating?
Well, as most of you already noticed in the forums it's summary time. But before I hit this years ups and downs I guess I should probably fire some graphs, facts etc to rep up this month in the challenge . Anyway here is what I came up with:

Overall Month:





NL20:



NL50:



Overall Challenge:




Thoughts About Results And Future Plans In The Challenge:
So what can I say, I'm not pleased with this month results. I'm not a crusher on this stakes but still kinda expected a bit better results. I mean I still was hoping to maintain the 2bb/100 WR since I knew what my hourly looks a like and since I increased the amount of hands/hour to 1200 I was really happy to see some more positive results/bigger hourly.
I also created a very good default game so handling 8 tables isn't really that hard for me and I also don't see a big decrease in the quality of my game. If someone would ask in the middle of the night what to do with hand XY vs position Z OR I guess I would snap reply(if I understood the question being sleepy :P). Also my grinding skills developed again to a new level so now a I can grind 3h without a break without losing the quality of the game.

So what to say about January and future plans for the challenge? Hmm...after I will get RB I will have to talk to Gordon and get his approval to start a NL100 shot. Most likely 5BI or something. I don't know if it's going to be already on Thursday but as soon as we get into contact. Also I didn't top last months volume so in January I wanna see 150k hands. Since next month is not much going on in terms of festivities I think this should be my minimum and also in case I don't make it I will find a decent penalty for myself. Anyway that's it for the challenge so now let's take a look at the year:


Personal Thoughts About 2013


Year 2013 in one word? Awesome !
Well, sadly I don't have any graphs to show since when I started this challenge I deleted my old database so most of my results won't be shown here. But I will list some plans for 2014 :

Plans 2014:
- Finish the deal with Gordon
- Move abroad once the deal is finished
- Learn a 5th language
- Learn to dance
- Try a new sport


So guys I wish a happy New Year to all of you and my wishes for 2014 is that the USA online market reopens and that I stay healthy.

I was asking that because as far as I know you were beating Speed NL50 before the challenge already?

I was playing speed on iPoker myself over the last couple of months. Mainly 100, but also 200 if it ran (but it almost never does). The rakeback is good on iPoker, but there are almost no fish and the software is quite bad. So combined with the fact that NL100 is the peak at iPoker speed and the fact that the rake is quite high I decided to move back to stars.

Anyhow good luck at 100, there are quite some good players there and versus them you will definitely struggle with basic ABC poker .

Hi guys,

@sooey
Hey mate, will think about this goal for 2014

@cjmcculley
Since I'm not allowed to advertise deals so I won't come up with the iPoker skin I'm playing. Appreciate if you understand.

@kerwinty
TY mate! Was on holidays so that's why it took a bit more time for the next update.

@Lumpizaver
Yeah that's true that I beat NL50 already before but I also didn't run 33BI below EV after 90k hands and I was playing Rush which is way softer(fish/reg ratio wise).
About NL100 well if ABC poker won't be profitable then well, I will have to work my ass more and more to arise to a new challenge. In the end

@mnml
TX! Yeah it does take a lot of discipline and every time you run bad the discipline is put on test.

So how did everyone get into 2014? For me the first grinding days weren't the best since iPoker introduced € Speed tables. But yeah, I can mostly be happy how I play. I mean my mass multitabling game improved although for the first day when I started playing I switched to just 6 tables to warm myself up. Yesterday I was back to 8 tables but variance made a cut after an hour already when I reached stop loss. It screw a bit my plans for this week since I planned on playing 60h, but yeah not much to do. Anyway here are the results for the last 2 days:





I'm currently after 90k hands BE(WR 0,5bb/100) but I run 33BI below EV and the interesting part is that my EV WR is actually rising(3.8bb/100) since I made some smaller adjustments. Ironically my WR shrinks . The good part about is that my mindset isn't influenced at all and I deal with this things way easily then I did. **** happens not much I can do about and so let's try to play my best.



I got RB and the cashier was yesterday even bigger before the deadly 60min started. Anyway I will most likely with Gordon start playing NL100 on Friday so hopefully with weekend recreational players my shot at NL100 hopefully will work.

Anyway that's it for today. GL!

Challenge Days: 47&48


So people,

Time for another short update . Anyway yesterday hit stop loss but recovered today in a 11k session. Anyway here are the results:





I also passed the 100k mark on NL50 so the graph looks like this now:





If I play 10k hands a day and given that iPoker introduced € Speed tables I could finish this challenge on NL50. Will I? Don't know since have to talk to Gordon and for now it seems like the NL100 shot has be delayed. Or maybe tomorrow?

Good night!

Re: NEW Challenge: Watch how I turn $50 into $10.000 without using advanced strategies

what are you paying your coach?
did you agree on a "coaching package" over your whole challenge?
did you pay him in advance (i guess) or will he receive part of your winnings?
thx a lot

TX mate! About your question: I have a coaching for profits deal with but the details I'm not allowed to disclose.

@Ari_Gold
Thank you very much!

@GoogledYou
Well, if you say so then it makes me feel better.

Hi everyone,

There is one thing that currently tilts and that is a situation where my business plans can be achieved because of variance. I planned on putting another 10k hands today and then finish this week with 50k hands and enjoy tomorrow my free day. Everything seemed so perfect, wake up, breakfast etc. went for a walk on a beautiful day(15-16°C,sitting at the beach and taking a bad in the sun). Came home with such a positive attitude that I wil crush today and instead I got crushed after exactly 42min. Sunday I'm stop losing after 42min ???????WTF??? I even now can't believe it. This is actually what tilts me the most. Every time I have some plans regarding volume something has to go wrong.
About the game, well didn't play that bad, made some mistakes due to mass tabling but the problem was that in 768 hands I only won 1 60BB pot and 1 50BB pot. Will see what Gordon will say.
Anyway that's it from me for today. Off to do some Equity Calculations and to all off playing the Sunday lotteries GL!
