You have to wait for tn to be fixed to play 180's? I find clicking the "register" button works pretty well Praps you should cut tables and win more.

I'm kinda lazy to take notes. In general I have just 3 categories how I tag regs which are: tight reg, aggro reg, sicko reg.

Ye, manually regging is just annoying + good excuse to play MTT's. Worked for me right?

So nothing amazing has happened since last update. I have been playing MTT's almost everyday. Mostly just breakingeven. Im bit down for this week but nothing amazing. Have been running pretty bad at late stages still but confidence is building since I have made several ft's and feeling pretty good while I play. Today its Sunday and looking to score something nice. I have been in MU for 5 weeks now. Would be nice to get out of that hole once and for all. Gl erryone today!

re: Sanjay_45 Grinding MTT's ftw in 2013.

So August is now behind and its time to start a new month and keep on grinding. Last month wasn't too bad but definitely starting to get bit worried that I've been in MU last 6 weeks. Getting close thou. Played mainly MTT's this month and I definitely feel that I'm constantly improving on them.

When I played 180s I rarely had any issues with tilting. In 180s you don't really have room to tilt since its basically just 10-15bb poker and std +cEV shoves and simple stuff like that. Also I have played those enough to know that if I just kept playing I would eventually end up profiting. But atm I'm having some serious issues with "mental side" of poker. This is something what I seriously want to improve in next month. Making huge mistakes late on tournaments because of tilting is hurting my profits and ROI significantly atm.

This week I have played everyday around ~40ish MTT's and add some 3rs to get tables running at the start. I'm currently 12-15tabling mostly and I think it works fine for me. Enough to keep me focused but not too much to get me distracted. I'm planning to play this same schedule for the time being.

I had some goals for last month as well:

Quote:

[ ] Going through this "to-do" list everytime before I start grinding (nah, lol)
[X] More focus on the quality, not quantity (Somewhat true)
[X] Be sad, Be miserable ( I just want one goal I know I can achieve!) This is just how I roll.

Mentioning this "to-do" list what I'm going to use whenever starting session includes:

- 4hr of studying (videos, 2+2 MTT forums, coaching etc etc)
- 30min nap before starting ( **** yea I pretend to meditate and obv fall asleep)
- run 7 km morning of the grind.
So I didn't actually do as much as studying as I had planned but still managed to watch way more videos and go through handhistories than normally so not too bad. Exercising has been bit off too but trying to get that done properly this month.

So as a summary I can say: Good month but could have been better.

Here is the graph:



As for the next month I just plan to keep on playing, keep on improving and facing my demons considering monkey tilt issues. Be honest about my results and trying to do even more studying than last month.

Vamooo!

re: Sanjay_45 Grinding MTT's ftw in 2013.

Hey guys.

Have been pretty nice two days and good start for the month overall. Monday I Won 5$ 7.5k KO turbo tourney although made a deal at hu in and took down bit over 1.3k. Yesterday I got 4th in 13.5$ KO 8k gt (ended KJ < KTs pf ai), 2nd in 8$ 6max 4k GT (QJo < KTss, Q45ss board ai otf) Also had some success on 180s.

Had pretty ****ty weekend but these scores put me up to over 1k profit this month. Also I made it out of the MU for the first time in 6 weeks! So things are finally starting to look better and I hope I can make some profit. Feeling pretty confident about my game. Also running pretty awesome atm. Trying to keep it up. I have now grinded 10 days in a row and don't really have any reason to stop now when I'm on the roll. Let's keep this rungood going. Gl erryone!

Graph for last 4 sessions:

Thx fellows.

Since my sick heater officially seems to ended I think I could give a larger update.

I have now grinded last 23 days straight and it has been pretty awesome tbh. I started playing same schedule everyday which worked out for me pretty good. I played around 47 MTT's a day with 9.25$ ABI and got 100% ROI (epic rungood obv) Also addition to that I played ~15 3r 180s everyday with 35% ROI. Basically I only added 3rs just to get more tables when I needed. I tried to keep the table count around 12-15 which feels comfortable for me atm while playing MTTs.

Had my biggest score in a while on Monday when I won 2r 8k gt for 1.8k. I have had also few other over 4fig cashes but most of the profit comes from winning smaller field tourneys like 16.5$ 8max and 22$ 360 cap.

Yesterday I got approved by stable to move up a bit and now I'm allowed to play up to 8r, 11c and 33fo. Obv std that had my worst day grinding as soon as I moved up and ended up losing about -500$ with new schedule. No worries thou. I'm in pretty good shape financially after these few weeks and have confident enough to just keep grinding. Hopefully I just don't have as sick downswing as last time what took me over 6 weeks to cover from.

So guess I'm just going to keep on doing what I have been doing for the past 3 weeks. I have watched a lot of videos from TPE and think that my game has got lot better. I'm still struggling sometimes with stupid tilt bluffs but at least I think I'm better at recovering from them than earlier. Work in progress for sure.

Not really having troubles with grinding this volume atm. Only thing that kinda starts to annoy me is that I'm struggling with music choices what I will listen everyday. In last 23 days I have been in front of my computer screen approx 15h a day and I'm listening music almost nonstop. Really starting to have troubles finding new music to listen to. Any recommendations are welcomed at this point.

Gonna post a graph when I take my first day off. Until then lets crush!

Kinda opposite of what I'm usually listening. I prefer someone growling how world is coming to end and everything sucks over laxxed music. Well seems like I'm already running terrible today so let's give reggae music a chance!

Thx, and I will never forgive u. How can u call with such a crap?! obv jk wp seems like u took the 2nd place.

Guess I could update this just now when some luckbox decided to bump this up again. Last month has been pretty nice. Just std grinding and nothing else. Took few days off and visited some friends. Got drunk for 3 days straight and decided never to take a day off again. Having a life is exhausting and horrible.

Seems like I haven't posted a graph in a month so here it is:



Swingin like a mf but coming back from the downswing and still going upwards.

Atm I'm playing same schedule everyday which contains 52 tourneys with 12.5$ ABI and planning to keep on going through this schedule until end of the month. Still looking forward to start grinding with own br and that is my nr 1 priority atm.

I have been fighting with ps.fr support for few weeks now to get my account sorted out and seems like everything should be ok next week. My stable decided to stake me into some FCOOP events which starts in 2 weeks. Probably playing most of the 50€ events and couple of 100€ hopefully. Pretty excited about playing against French fishes again. I have definitely missed them.

Guess thats all for now. As said this month is going to be all grind and have couple of goals to go with it.

Trying to reach top15 in p5 in Finland rankings (Currently 23th)
100k badge in p5 (Currently in 92k)

I think I'm also due to break my biggest score which is 3.6k from FTP like 2 years ago. Not that easy tho since like 90% of my daily schedule tourneys doesn't have over that ftw but there is still hope!

Vamos!

re: Sanjay_45 Grinding MTT's ftw in 2013.

There is definitely something wrong with my games between Sunday - Tuesday since I can't really remember profiting these days lot. I have been repeating this same cycle for quite some time where I get myself into MU in start of the week and then just save my ass grinding a ton and making profit at wed-sat. Maybe I'm just too relaxed at the start of the week.



Swing swong ffs. Well tomorrow is another grind.

Indeed, as std as it gets but still ****ty ending to a good run. Seems like I'm running pretty golden on lol.fr atm and like it so far. Deep structures and horrible players = win. My itm % is somewhere around 40%. Just need to get to the end soon.

I started grinding new schedule 2 days ago with 49 tourneys and 20$ish abi. Still trying to get used to grinding in 2 different softwares but I think it's deff worth it and looking forward to adding more of euro sites in future.

Do you use table ninja? Does that help/hinder when multi-siting? Is there any software for multi-siting that anyone's aware of? Sorry to derail!
