Re: TheDrunkLife SNE 2013 Propbet thread, 430K VPPs in 73 days

In your initial post you calculated 5872VPPs per day when 72 left.

Now your calculation indicates close to 7000VPP's per day. You even set 10.000 VPP per day.

Does that mean you are not keeping the pace or you had it planned to boost in December?

What odds you give to yourself now?

Btw I hope you make it! Not that I know any of you but support the one who goes after his goal!

Yes that means I am behind pace. Wouldn't say I'm much surprised that December is going to be a kick in the ass. The number of things I have to say no to just goes up.

I still give myself an 100% chance. I said I'm gonna do this right? So yeah, 100%, then and now. The bet exists because other people have every right to do whatever math they like and draw whatever conclusions they see fit.

Ty for the luck! I agree, where's the fun in betting someone won't do something difficult? Appreciate your support.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lotta work to do in December. No more going out to eat, no more doing much of anything. Sleep, Meditate, Coffee, Poker, repeat.

The other night I had to cut my session short b/c my eyes were hurting. I already wear Gunnars and use F.lux. Some people have said try staring away from the screen for 30 seconds every 30 minutes. Hard with hypers but gonna try and work that in. If my eyes bleed, then I guess I'll be able to say I literally played til my eyes bled. It'll be a cool story bros.


Day 40 is on getting out of bed in the morning and starting your day like a Boss. Give life the D.

Haven't tried Visene, migh have to invest in some eye drops. Kinda a wimp about putting things in my eyes. Usually like to treat causes not symptoms but removing the cause here isn't really an option (hours of poker)

Udjusting on the fly between the lowest possible and maybe 75% of the way down, also wearing gunnars. All the way down and no light can make me tired sooner but it is easier on the eyes. Also got a background lamp. Testing this with eye strain atm.

Don't remember, try to entertain myself sometimes I guess. Fire random stuff from time to time. Focus on 60/100 hypers and pushing ym tables atm, adding podcasts or having people come chill with me and talk to keep me sane.

Pretty sure it's a lot more than 6hrs a day now, and even at 6hrs a day it really gets to you mentally. Taking swings of thousands of dollars, and having to be concentrated on your A game consistently or it will bust you is pretty tough.

It's like studying for 80 random exams the day before in University and the next day you write them (His review)

First couple might be pretty easy, some days might feel easier than others but after awhile you really need a break. I don't know might not be the best example you obv won't be writing 80 exams in 80 days..

Re: TheDrunkLife SNE 2013 Propbet thread, 430K VPPs in 73 days

Hypers aren't spawning in the lobby atm. Hopefully PS will sort it ASAP. Quick update, we are at 855,246. Taken to palying mostly 60/100 hypers and cutting everything else out and pushing for more tables.

Been shooting for 10K+ VPPs a day. I'm generally playing for 10 hours each day, mixing my tables from 13-18. I have had a couple fail days where I just can't get settled into playing and get a pittance of VPPs, but so long as I get settled into the grind I seem to get there. Theoretically I need 14-15 real heavy volume days and I have 20 days not counting today. Don't want to count on Xmas, Xmas eve or NYE having volume. Going to try and get done by the 28th to give myself a buffer.

Anyone know how to get a response from PS in these situations? Guess I gotta get elite 8 more times so I get that phone number to call

Lol, the description of how grinding feels couldn't be more wasted on someone. FWIW Tcarnage, pretty sure meca played more cash hypers than anyone on the planet this year.

everyones tolerance is different and everyones experiences are but i sharkscoped thedrunklife and his average hours per day is 6 so i would say all this posting about keeping him sane and among other things feels like overstating whats left of the bet when he is playing 6 hours. yes 6 hours EVERY day, but still, there is quite a prize to be won for 6 hours a day
