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.

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

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

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.
