ya, im still not back onto ps, once i get back on i'll be updating this regularly. They have been giving me some small issues, like they asked for a signed copy of my lease (photo of it) so i just sent a picture of the first page with what they asked. Took them 2 days to reply that it wasn't good enough.

So i just sent in literally the full copy of my lease (all 7 pages), that should do it.

The final reviewer dosn't work on weekends tho, so instead i'll jsut be grinding on PP this weekend. Hopefully i'll just bink the PP 200k and clear a good bit of mu like that ^.^

Re: ***Protential's Last PG&C Thread***

My first day back i only played around 7 hours. I did a short session before i went to dinner with friends and then i did another short session before i went to sleep.

I was planning on doing most of grinding from 1pm eastern usa time to 3am eastern usa time, but i've noticed that the late night stuff has chopped off in volume a bit since i was last on. So instead I have decided to change my grinding session times to 9-10am start on weekdays and grind until 11pm/midnight, and on sunday i'll start grinding at the kickoff.

With 180 grinding and mixing in some party poker mtts my variance should definitely be low enough that i should consistently have +++ months and my hourly through this time period should def be at it's highest.

I didn't get to sleep until late last night, so im starting my session today around when i was originally planning to, but i'm only going to put in around 10-11 hours today and aim to wake up early tomorrow.

Re: ***Protential's Last PG&C Thread***

Because SS is fairly shoddy with tracking individual days im just going to post my overall stats and w/e.

Grinded for about 10 hours today, only played around 100 games although i avg'd 16-20 tabling pretty much the entire day, although i ended up getting really tired about 9 hours in and decided to just grind down my last mtts until i was finished instead of playing 18's liek i did a bit last night and im planning to in the future.

With what im currently playing i dont think i'll be able to clear 5k games/month, but idk if i should be aiming for that as far as hourly is concerned. I feel that focusing a good mix on mtts and 180's is my best bet for hourly and having around 8-10 tables up of each should be optimal for me atm. I had a lot of deep runs, ft'd a few 27's, won a 15, ft'd a few 35's and broke even overall. I def ran terribly today, but am very happy with how everything went, even if i played less volume then i thought i would.

    I lived in milwaukee for around 9 months, played around 300-400 hours at potawatami. Played a few hundred games on merge and made a few k, didn't really see much value in the site tho.

    Didn't get to sleep until 3am last night, so i am starting later then planned today and will be running a shorter session (should still be 10-11 hours). Hoping i can get to sleep earlier tonight so i may start earlier tomorrow.

    Yesterday was pretty interesting, it started off with a deep run in the 54ko (went into the FT 1/9 and took 7th, first was 5700 >.<) and midway through the day i won a 27$ mtt for 1.1k. I ended up running like **** in 180's tho, so my day ended up down around $300.

    Today is thanksgiving in the usa, so I was going to take today off, but instead my bf and I have decided that I should just take a day off in a week or 2 and we'll have that day all to ourselves. Gonna go into the bank today grocery store, should be grinding within 1-2 hours. Good news is that I finally woke up a bit earlier, but I still need to wake up around 2.5 hours earlier on sunday.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of the Americans who are reading this and best of luck at the tables!

    Yesterday's session was pretty fun. I took 5th in a 75turbo for 1700, i won a 35$ 180 for 1735, and i had deep runs in the 55$ 100k and the 22c (60th and 10th). It was my first real winning session back and i profited around 2k. Not too shabby of a "Thanksgiving" ^.^

      Here was my bustout from the 22c, was a pot for first place with 10 people left and 8k for first.... >.<


      My sessions so far have only been averaging around 9-10 hours due to me trying to change my sleep schedule. Although my volume and playing time are lacking a tiny bit, I am very very happy with how i have been playing and am very excited to see what the next 5 months will bring .

      Today was sick for 180's, I ft'd 5 35$ 180's. I also took 10th in a 75$ mtt, and took 4th in the 8c. Also had deep runs in the 3r, 22c, and some others. Pumped with how i have been playing, still disappointed with how i've been running deep in mtts, but cant do anything about that.

      Hoping i can fall asleep early tonight so i can start earlier on saturday and in time for the kickoff on sunday. ^.^
