Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

So moved up to $35s again today. Going to have a 10bi shot (15 if I'm tilted and 10bi down though lol). So going to have a break from HU cash until I have a comfortable roll at $35s. Whilst I'm on a shot though going to try and not play a ton of regs this time (until I'm more comfortably rolled).

BR: $1760

Graph for day (in money since I moved up half way through the day:

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Still at $35s and swings are starting to get big. I think I definitely have some mental leaks because once I've won a few BIs I can't motivate myself to play any more because I'm concerned about hitting a huge downswing. Also felt like I got murdered in card distribution yesterday, don't think anything went right but pulled it back today when I caught a huge heater.

BR: $2073

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Have just short of 400 games left at FTP before I move back to pokerstars, hopefully be done by thursday night and then when edge payment (should be like $70 or so + I'll buy a ticket or two with my points) comes through on friday I'll just transfer my roll over. Would really like to give above 2k for when I move back. Although I've started to get bored of waiting for games and sitting regs if I don't get quick action, probably not the smartest move in terms of short term profit and how bad the swings will be but its always good to keep your reg game strongish.

BR: $2024

Graph since last update, nice little $600 upswing which was immediately followed by $600 down:

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Very fun day today, although volume was very bad, couldn't bring myself to play much more as quite often when I've won alot I end up losing alot back so thoguht it would be nice to lock the win for the day and chill out watching football in the evening. If I manage to keep upswinging for the next few days I'll be at $60s pretty soon, probably switch to a 60/50 BRM then though

BR: $2628

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

I would take a 10bi shot at the 60s with that roll. Skill levels aren't going to be much different so the faster you can move up the better

After having a 90bi downswing at $20s I really wouldn't feel comfortable playing $60s with a 44bi roll, it would probably cause me to play too cautious as well. Think I'm best off leaving myself really well rolled when I do have to move down cos I don't want to have to risk dropping down two levels again. Also I haven't even got 1k games yet at 30s, I might feel slightly differently if I had a 5k sample with a 3% ev roi but without that not even sure I'd win at $60s.

Nope I've never been coached. Will probably consider it if i start struggling to beat a particular level or I feel like I'm being outclassed by a few regs. Neither am I part of a training site, I had a standard membership with HUSNG at one point and downloaded some videos but still not get round to watching most of them.

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Awesome end to the month, ended on huge heater, in like 9 days went from $20s to being ready for a shot at the $60s. Need to play another 200 games on ftp then back to stars I go. Going to buy sharkystrator when I figure out how as well since i only have $15 license then play some $30s just to get used to being back on stars then its time for a shot at $60s.

Month summary:

BR: $3608
winnings: $2918
winnings ev: $2523

Monthly graph for full tilt SnGs (also had $700 winnings from pokerstars and from HU cap)

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

So decided to move up to $60s today, action wasn't really quick though so was adding a $35 table whilst I waited for action at the $60s otherwise hourly would drop and there'd be no point even playing $60s. Final day on FTP tomorrow then back to grinding pokerstars and hopefully supernova.


BR:~$3800

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Played on pokerstars past few days and sharky makes life so much easier. Still enjoying my upswing. Also cashed in sunday mill but had sold 75% so only made like $150, still though was fun. Currently being a girl and not playing $60s, I'm nice and content at the $30s for now. Going to try and have some long reg battles over next few days though since I've got the roll to support a big downswing and will be good practice for the $60s. Probs going to take a 10bi shot at 6k or something and enjoy playing $30s with no pressure. Still haven't got a decent sample at $30s either so would be nice to have a pretty ev graph over several thousand games for confidence.

BR: $4660
VPP: 2558

well my roi was less on full tilt cos I played so many reg games but I think they both have a ton of fish/really bad regs. Stars probably just edges it though, especially when taking into account constant action at $30s whereas at FTP you sometimes have to wait a few mins.

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Well what a horrendous few days. Decided to throw some $60s in and ran so bad at them as well as running horrendously at $30s alongside that. Depressing few days. Only consolation is I got alot of VPPs. Back to only $30s to try and regain confidence and win some money.

BR: $3800 (Also have like $110 invested in marketplace though)
VPP: 3595

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

Been getting in a decent amount of HU cash cap recently and been racking up the VPPs as I go, need to get back grinddng hypers though cos it'd be nice to get the money I lost back. Had a tilty fish play lots today and ended up winning like $600 off him, ran ridic amount above ev though. Game was stupidly swingy though. Also made gold star for first time ever, 3k vpps this month already so will easy make platinum as well and hopefully get back on pace for supernova, if I run good and move up though I might try and aim for 200,000 vpp instead

BR: $4310
VPP: 4821

ty Pretty much all .5/1 and 1/2, slightly more 1/2 though. Generally sit lobby at 1/2 and at .5/1 I just sit other regs lobbies though.

Re: shooting for the high stakes (HU hypers - from $15s to $1000s)

nice thread. just starting HTHUSNGs myself at the micros

I'm enjoying reading the various HUSNG PGC threads while I figure these out. Definitely the most fun I've had playing poker in quite a while... seems these can be quite profitable as well if you game select properly higher up

ty. Yea having played all types of games I'd say hypers and HU cap are by far the most fun. Yea they do have great potential to be profitable if you get good at them. Although I generally prefer not to game select 'cos I feel like playing regs will make me better so when I do reach $100s+ I'll be better equipped to deal with strong regs and carry on moving up, whereas a lot just seem to settle for plateauing at the $60s
