Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

All right, so my personal challenge for next week will be:
  • 600 Spin and Gos
  • > 50 average chipEV
  • > 1h / day Twitch stream with status updates (usually from 11 pm CET)
For some people 600 games/week is not a lot, but it's half my usual monthly volume. Should I fail, I'll donate 50 USD to charity. Week start / end is defined as Monday 6 am CET (Pokerstars day start).

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

So I started the challenge yesterday. Good news and bad news!

Good: Volume. Started with 110 games yesterday. Yay!
Bad: EV. ~30 chipEV - not a good start.

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

All right, on 2/7 days I played 180 games, but chipEV is 25. Is it the higher volume? Or
just variance? I'll review many hands today and keep on grinding

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

After day 3/7, 267 games done with 30 chipEV so far. I'm reducing the pace a bit!

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

Great that you made your volume goal but do you think you're sacrificing your cEV in return for it? I would aim to improve cEV firstly before increasing tables/games. It may be worth investing in a coach to patch up the leaks

You're absolutely right that I don't want to do this. I just wanted to see if I'm able to play a bigger volume now. Apparently, I'm not quite ready yet. I still did some studying last week and had coachings including a private one. It's not like I was only grinding.

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

After a few days break from poker I'm now unfortunately sick, so rather inactive.

But here's still the recap for last month:

November 2017 recap

Graph on 15$ spins:


Time spent:


All right, so for my 600 games in a week challenge, I hit the volume goal but apparently my cEV is really bad when 3-tabling. I'm going back to mostly 2 tables for now unless I feel super fit and confident.

My goals for December are very modest, just 1k games with 50+ chipEV. Due to my "sick leave" at the moment, then christmas and another planned holiday later this month (going to Spain with friends for a week), I'm not gonna be able to focus much more on poker.

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

Hey guys, I'm back!

I was on two holidays in December + sick for two weeks, so not much poker - hence no detailed report. I had decent chipEV but on less than 400 games. I also had severe problems with my internet connection which should (hopefully) be solved now.

I'm excited to move on to January 2018 - I'll try to play 1.4k games, keep at least 50+ chipEV and study a lot, for a total of ~140h time investment in Spin and Gos.

I'll also resume streaming starting next Monday, if my internet connections stays stable.

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

Yesterday I finally replaced my almost 7-year-old main PC components with some new stuff. Got myself an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 with 16 GB of fast RAM and a new SSD. I hope the days of tilting lags (especially during streams) are over!

Hardware is working like a charm. But I also upgraded to Windows 10 (finally) and I'm having some trouble setting up everything and activating my (legit) Windows license after the hardware changes. Need to fix this before I stream again - next week I hope.

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

Hey guys! I had a lot of health issues to sort out, and was also very busy looking for a new job, travelling to interviews etc. This week I got accepted will start a great job in mid-May.

I only played a low poker volume lately due to the circumstances. But now, at least in April, I'll have a lot of time, waiting for the new job to start. After that - we will see.
I'm still in SpinLegends and moved myself back to 7$ spins while not playing regularly - those I can beat rather easily even when a bit rusty . I'm still officially on 15s and will move back up as soon as I get a decent volume going. I'll also stream again in April

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

April 2018 Recap

April was the first month where I played and streamed 15$ spins consistently again. Not that many games, but I'm happy I got back into the grind.

Graph on 15$ spins:


Time spent:


I'm satisfied with the chipEV. Upswing? Maybe. I hope I can keep that up. I'd love to invest more time overall, but it won't happen any time soon, unfortunately. Tomorrow I'm starting my new full-time job as (IT) Solution Architect in a rather big company. I'll have to focus on that for a while.

Re: Stream and Spin and Go (and rock)

Hey guys,

new job is interesting so far, I'm happy with it First time I work for a big company too.

But working 40+ hours per week requires a new schedule for my twitch stream. Also slightly related to the fact that I have to get up at 7 am on most days :

Monday - Thursday ~22 pm CE(S)T (actually a bit earlier today)
Occasional extra weekend streams

Sometimes I'll have to skip a stream though, like tomorrow. FeelsBadMan.
