re: Sanjay_45 Grinding MTT's ftw in 2013.

Thx for support everyone!

Got into std grinding zone yesterday after a longish break and took some time to get comfortable with it again but got nice volume with really nice profits done so couldn't be more happy.



Running good, playing good = crushing. Hope I can keep this up. Starting todays grind soon.

re: Sanjay_45 Grinding MTT's ftw in 2013.

So another grind done and more coming today. Nothing amazing but still profited.



My chase for SN is pretty far away right now actually since I lowered my tablecount and making less volume than b4 but still doable definetily.

I also discussed my new deal with stable and might be possible that I would start playing MTT's mixed with 180s. Kinda keeps it interesting for me to get involved with MTT's once again. I used to play small stakes MTT's before I started playing 180s and totally crushed those games about year ago over smallish sample thou. Looking forward to the incoming ONETIME! Prbly going to make the deal in end of this week and have to figure out how I'm going to balance my grinding after that. Until that happens I'm just going to keep playing 180s and hopefully make some money.

I'm only at 27k ATM actually... I'm making around 700vpp's per day thou atm so if I can keep this up it should take about 3-4 months to complete sn for the first time ever. Just have to keep on grinding.

Played std session yday and it went REALLY well. One of my best sessions playing 180s for sure.



Running like god, cant deny that. Just hoping this continues as long as possible before the inevitable downswing comes and crushes my soul. Don't know if this sudden upswing is caused by me decreasing tablecount and focusing more or what but whatever it is I'm just going to continue to do the same thing I have been doing for last couple of days. Grind on!

So you just took all my rungood for yourself? Pretty selfish IMO. I mean I had one of the worst downswings since playing these things yesterday. Lost about 120BI's in 150 game streak. Glad that I grinded it out and didnt end up losing too much. Last 2 days profit somewhere about 200$ since I had pretty good day before yesterday but has been some swingy ride for sure.

Going to post a weekly graph after Sunday. Just a normal grind until then. Gl erryone.

Lol actually started running a bit better after that post. Grinding my way out of a 1k downswing myself so I know what it's like!

Sent you 0.01 to make up for it!

Haha. Appreciate it!

Was thinking about playing MTT session today with half priced majors and all but decided to go with same boring sng grind as always. Doesn't really feel like playing at all but can't really take days off if I want to make that sn happen sometime this year. Also closing gap to reach that leaderboard nr1. Hoping to get that goal done in next two weeks.

These kind of comments are just making me more motivated. It's great to know that seeing me on the tables is making someone annoyed. Thx guys!

Nah. As you can see the avg stake is 4$ what means around 1/3 of my tourneys are 8s. Would be sweet to make over 1k profit in one session from 2s thou.


So week done. Overall very good week. Very happy with the results and way I played most of the time. Still have some work to do keeping my focus up and avoiding missclicks and stuff like that. I feel very confident about my game atm and I think I just need to focus more on the things how I can keep up my A game through long periods of time. So here's the graph for the week:



So different week same ****. Gonna play everyday normal 9h session and hopefully can make as good effort as last week. Dropped to 4th(???) place in leaderboards atm. Have been running better on 8s actually now so I can take it. Still looking to snap that 1st place someday. Would be cool to be first making the 10k profit.

Still wondering about if I'm going to start playing on my own or to make a new deal with the stable. Options are if I start playing on my own I would prbly have to drop down playing 2s for the while. If I would make a new deal I would prbly get to include MTT's and 3rs to my normal grind. So doesn't rly know what would be the best option for me atm. Decided to grind 2s and 8s at least for rest of this month and decide then. Grind on!

re: Sanjay_45 Grinding MTT's ftw in 2013.

Sanjay I'm guessing you use TN right?

I just got a gamepad (the xbox 360 one for windows) and couldn't recommend it more for grinding the 180s. I used to get terrible wrist pains from using my keyboard but have no problems now and can move around a bit more to get comfortable while playing.

Also I didn't need xpadder or any of that ****, TN just recognised the input straight away.

You should do it!

Yeah have one mate on stable who has been telling me to get one for months now. I am currently using mouse (mx518) and a separatable numpad as a keyboard and find it really comfortable. Don't really want to change since I have used this combo for a long time now.

Yeah thx man. Have seen you at the tables and seems like ur crushing too. Keep it up!


Had std session yday. Down a bit but was -150BI's down at one point so got pretty nice recover at the end. Played poorly, ran even worse. Hope I can turn that around today.

re: Sanjay_45 Grinding MTT's ftw in 2013.

About debating for 2s on your own or 8s and 3r staked, i would say go staked, you will improve more over the time, get proper coaching, play higher limits and dont have to worry about BRM. i would go as far as getting staked for all 180s, then when you crush them start to play on your own, at least up to 15$ cuz 35s are not fireing up quiet often

Yeah I'm starting to lean towards playing staked too. I just really like not to worry about brm and just grind without any pressure of dropping down the limits or busting my roll. Just need to make some kind of deal when I can get little more freedom to decide what I'm playing. Looking forward to start crushing small stakes MTT's again.

So had pretty good session yesterday and here's my results for the week so far:



For the rest of the week I decided to go little different. I'm going to just play 2s to get that #1 leaderboard spot and finish off with that goal so I can start figuring out a new one. Not prbly +ev decision for me atm but its just something I really would like to accomplish. ATM I'm in the 2nd place and 667$ away from the goal. Hope I can make that happen in next few days so I can start my normal grind again. Until then watch out on 2s because I'm gonna crush it. Gl me.

Nah.. " here's my results for the week so far" so 2 sessions in that 633 tourneys. Most I have played within one session is little over 560. Could try to get that 600 done someday.

re: Sanjay_45 Grinding MTT's ftw in 2013.

I think if you have emotional control then playing on your own money is infinitely better than being staked. With the volume you play you'll have no probs moving back up to the 3r and 8s if you have to start at the 2s again. Your long-term hourly is just so much better when you're not giving a % of it away.

You also have the freedom of playing some MTTs when you feel like it/shot taking if you want/taking long breaks.

Just my 2 cents.
