Official 2020-2021 Diamond Club Pursuit Thread( also Diamond Club Elite)

So this thread is for those who decided to say goodbye to Pokerstars( or other pokersite with close to 0% rakeback) and start a new chapter in their poker career.




So are you going for Diamond Club or Diamond Club Elite?

Diamond Club could be one of the reasons why zoom will die in 1-3 years( this is just a speculation at this point)

The main goal is rake target and have balanced life and other things to do like spending time with family( which is a priority for me) and not poker allday, everyday and emotional battle with still speedin.
Guy just plays non-stop its like hes playing 16hrs everyday with no real life and no days off.
Actually im pretty happy that he is playing so much => more fun for me.
It would be nice if he shows on hes stream his winrate before rakeback in my game.
He complains that I run so pure vs him. My complain is that hes more arrogant and selfish than me which is ok given he almost achieved DCE.

Good luck OP. Seems there's a resurgence of #rakebackgrinders nowadays which I think is pretty interesting. You'll be playing primarily 100nl? What's your schedule look like, how many hours do you plan to play, etc?

Yes 100NL, maybe some 200NL in coming months if player pool increases( actually Im rolled enough for NL200, but the traffic is pretty bad compared to NL100)
Schedule looks pretty simple:
2 days off, 5 days grinding to reach target 5k rake( some weeks 4 days grinding and 4k target)
Typical day when grinding will look like:
-wake up
-spend time with family and have breakfast
-play during the day
-spend time with family and have dinner
-do some house chores
-play late night
-go to sleep
Should include some exercise at the gym soon when days off and some running on grindind days( I live near a park so its a free opportunity)

P.S. This thread was created more for people who aim for Diamond club or Diamond club elite to post here and not as a personal thread, although my goal is to get the DCE, DC is like super easy to get at this point and its not a challenge compared to getting DCE which is a challenge

Nice, so would it be roughly 10 hours or so on grind days? I've basically been doing something similar on GG daily leaderboard lately. Sleep deprivation is real!

1k rake/day at 100ff is no joke. GL

Yes only fastforward 6 tables.
Tried 9 tables, but its pretty bad for the eyes and takes a lot of mental energy. Sounds weird, but playing 6 tables is kind of relaxing and fun.

DC is 10% more than current system: 50% weekly, leaderboard and affiliate( same % with DC)
DCE is 15% more than current system: 60% weekly, leaderboard and affiliate( 5% less with DCE)
P.S. Currently getting around 100% so max rakeback possible with DC, DCE is around 110-120% with current weekly, leaderboard and affiliate system

I feel you. There's something very fun about playing 4+ tables of zoom where you just get in the zone. I'm sure it's a lot easier for you than most since you're an insane volume grinder.

Thoughts on grinding volume vs less tables but playing in more +EV games?

Tnx. I tried 6 ff tables a few months ago, and average around 60 rake/hour. Really sick that you rake above 100/hour
