ZOOOOOM v2

Hi 2p2,

I've done a couple of these before but ended up stopping due to XYZ. Anyway, I've had the urge to make a new one lately, so here goes!

About me:
I'm a 21 y/o guy from the UK grinding 6max cash on PS. I started playing in Sept 2015, but only took it somewhat seriously upon the turn of 2016. Even with me then taking it more serious, my overall dedication still left a lot to be desired as I had other interests and my work ethic was (in general) pretty poor; too many hours spent playing games/watching TV etc.

This brings me to 2017, where, even though it has only been ~50 days, I have been putting in more effort than I ever have before, both on and off the tables. I am really happy with my progress so far, both in my results and my work ethic. Looking forward to what 2017 has to offer

Plans/Goals:
- 500z by 2018
- 50k BR by 2018
- to deem 2017 as a success

YTD (mix of 25z/50z/tiny bit of 100z):


Will update every few days or so with some interesting hands and updates.

Thanks for reading & gl

Re: ZOOOOOM v2

Genuinely here to wish you all the best. I really hope you can make it.

And now some questions,

Why do you have a spread of 3 stakes in a 60k hand sample? Are you doing some spooky BRM? Do you ever intend on playing a meaningful sample at any one stake? (That was a joke btw but I guess a needle too because it's you). Also how do you plan on getting to 500z in just one year? Will you just use super spooky BRM and constantly move up/move down? Because if so, and say you have a 5-10bb/100 wr across all stakes, I can see it happening. If you try to play meaningful samples at each level (I.e 100k+ hands), you'll have to put a whole lot of volume in in a very small window.

I want you to succeed very badly.

Well it's basically just the two stakes, only the last 3k hands are 100z. The BRM hasn't been too unconventional tbh. I started at 25z w/ $500 on 01/01/2017 and moved up at 30bi's on a shot basis each time. I wasn't planning on moving to 100z until $4k but I asked a friend who knows a lot more than I, and he said 4bi's should be OK to shot with if I feel comfortable enough, and I did.

I have the projected plan/forecast in Excel. If all goes to plan, then I should be at 500z by September w/ 50bi's. Of course it could be sooner than that, or later, depending on variance and how well I play etc.

Thank you.

            OT meaning off table? If so, then nothing really mate, bar the amount of time I'm dedicating. I make sure to do at least 3ish hours of study work each day, ranging from hand reviews with friends, VOD reviews, sweats, stuff in Excel etc. I did this all before, just less of it all.
