ST micro grind on Carbon

What up, standard PGC thread, standard intro..
Starting at the bottom and grinding the roll (up hopefully) through the stakes. Allowing 40BI per stake, but with Super Turbos I know this is running a risk for ruin.
As is:
br $0-160 -- $1s and $2s
br $160-320 -- $4s
br $320-600 -- $8s
br 600+ -- $15s+

So on and so forth...

I will be combining HU and 6-max to this grind, HU's thus far seeming to be my stronger area. Just dumped $80 on to Carbon (with bonus) to start the grind at the $1s and $2s. The $2s seem to have a better rake by percentage so will be mostly looking at those.
Made a small withdrawal off Bovada last night which I will use to purchase PT3 when it arrives. Also going to keep a small amount on that site for when the urge to scratch the degeneracy itch arises.

All I can think of for now, tldr yaddy yada

Re: ST micro grind on Carbon

Any input is appreciated man thanks!
Wrapping up the session super quick as the beers are now flowing and I felt my auto-pilot play style creeping in.
I was worried about traffic at this ungodly ******* hour but the HU games were filling super quick! Only played one 6-max (busto'd) which took considerably longer to fill.
Tomorrow's volume will be way more solid.
PRofit: +$.49! Ballin' outta ****in control!!

Also forgot to mention in OP, totally paid for a random stranger's meal this evening which is pure +++++ karma for me. Get em...

I feel like there was something else I meant to include but my mind eludes me atm..

Ha! Well my friend, it's a burger joint found exclusively in the southwest. Calls Southern California (my stompin' grounds) its birthplace. Hands down most top notch fresh quality meal you're gonna get under 10 bucks. Any idea? If you're not from the area, this may be tough.

Re: ST micro grind on Carbon

oh it's true, don't hate!
mcdonalds equals complete **** fake pink slime bull**** food, I do not eat there.
Story is simply: This is my day-job. Guy comes up, small talks about being on his way to the graveyard shift at UPS etc etc, bozo's card repeatedly declines so I pulled mine out and swiped it. He gave me a "god bless" and on I went doing my job.

As of right now going to stick pretty closely to my 40BI plan in OP, may do occasional underrolled shots if I'm on a heater or what have you. Play it by ear.

Re: ST micro grind on Carbon

First hour sesh of the day I decided on about 90% of volume being the 6-max. Running hotter than the sun, current BR $103.77 for a profit of $23.77..
Something else I forgot to mention, personal goal of mine is to study about 25% of as much as I play.
Another new goal is to move up in VIP status from Earth (ground floor) to Wind. gogogo

Re: ST micro grind on Carbon

Who doesn't know what In-n-Out is? I live in Philly and know to order a triple triple protein style (health food junkie obv)....anyway

OP, as someone who has played over 60k of these games, who started where you are and who now plays up the $100s (35s-100s on merge) it isn't a matter of if you will go busto with 40bis, but when. Trust me. I wouldnt be comfortable without 250bis for a given stake unless you can reload whenever you want.

When I first moved to the 35s I lost $4k in 800 games, which was $4200 below ev. Yes 130+ bis below ev in 800 games. Took me a whole day and half.

I would say the absolute most aggressive BRM you could use is having 100-150 of your highest stakes, if you are mixing lower stakes in as well. But if this money means anything to your life (which it prob doesnt) then even that is far too aggressive.

GL!

Haha, 3x3 and health food never belong in the same sentence.
What BRM do you utilize? Are you still playing the ST format now?
Not a whole ton of options while I'm at the baby stakes. What is your opinion on the DON's? I'd think they would decrease variance a ton as they are reg speed and, well, double or nothing (lol).
Thanks for posting!
