yea know a few people who have gone with zzztilt and they speak highly of him so probably would go with him if I do seek coaching at some point.

ty, wasn't sure how I did at $60s since results + ev line were bad but I felt like I was holding my own so reassuring to hear that. gl

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
Definitely. Nothing wrong with strengthening your game by harassing other regs :P

I know I'll eventually try out cap as it's essentially the same game. Have quite a ways to go with HUSNGs before I worry about that though :P

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

Haven't been playing much SnGs recently but been playing a lot of cap instead. Decided to try and take a few regs on at 1/2, definitely have room for improvement over how I've been playing recently though. Also ran pretty bad but at least I'm starting to get lots of vpps.

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

That's a pretty good graph.

Do you think you have an edge at 20bb over the regs??

Yep definitely. Most of the regs I have played have huge leaks. Although I pay like 5bb/100 rake I think against most regs I can still overcome that.

What do u do with ax hands in the sb when folded to you? Do you ever consider open limping in the sb against players who defend/3b rlly wide against you.

When folded to me? It's HU, it can't be folded to me.

It sounds like more of a tournament question. Against some villain types though yes I'd definitely be doing that. My default though is to just raise 100% if folded round to me in the sb unless bb has given me reason not to.

yes I meant folded to u in the sb so your hu with the bb. many regs open limp 20bb+ deep in hypers. why not in cap as well?

Hu only has the sb and the bb. It can't be "folded to you in the sb"...

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

Last exam tomorrow then 4 week break so hopefully going to get lots of volume in over that time. Not played as much as I'd have like recently with trying to finish coursework and stuff. Although found a reg I don't like so my only aim at the moment is to beat him really good. I've set sharky to always be available to two table him when he sits lobby so that should be fun. Keep ending up with like 4 tables and close the other ones just to concentrate on him.

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

Much better day today, been mixing in some micromillions into the grind. Went to like 200th in one, would've been nice to make a FT but wasn't to be. Should make platinum star by sunday so will have like a week to spare. Need to try and get ahead of supernova pace though cos I'll probs have to take some time away from poker when exam times rolls round. I did plan on posting some hands from yesterdays big losing session but couldn't bring myself to look at some of them, would've depressed me too much.

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

Poor volume recently since I've been quite busy. When I have played though I've been hunting several regs and my ev line hasn't really been going up against them, still not gonna leave them alone though. Not sure if I'm jsut running into the top of their ranges in a lot of spots or if I'm massively mis-approximating their range in certain spots. When I have another 100 games v them I'll review some hands and see if I need to change my ranges in some spots.

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

I love reading Hyper-HU goals/challenges...
So sick to see how some guys get so much out of it.
I usually just play them when I am on tilt, or just can't stop playing, because they are massive fun, but after max. 5 of them I get frustrated, because it seems impossible to play more than 5 without getting sucked out - I am mentally just not made for these games ^^
Anyway, gl with your supernova chase! Will be checking this thread from time to time

Haha I think I make a lot of my money by the guys that just pay them a visit when they are on tilt. These games do toughen you mentally though with the sheer amount of AIs you get used to being sucked out on and coolered a lot.

ty for well wishes

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

So end of month, easily made platinum star and won abit but pretty bad month overall imo, didn't have a great roi but played a lot of regs so guess its expected. Hopefully manage to get a big volume month in april and maintain solid roi whilst playing lots of regs. Also had a bit of play on ftp which isn't accounted for in graphs.
