$150 to SNE - $150 to $15k DONE!
8.10.2012 (6.10.2012 - start of TiltBook :P)
In the last update I wrote about making it to $60 but not feeling way too excited about playing them as the play the is much more aggro in comparison to what I have experienced so far and I was forced to figure out how to exploit these aggro regs. I finally reached the SuperNova on Tuesday and began cashing out my FPPs for the best possible rate, $100k FPPs for $1,600. As I had enough for two of these packages and a teddy bear, I found myself having a roll for $100 all of a sudden, which I did not want to start playing immediately - the game there is on much higher level. Fortunetaly, the people at PokerStars decided to give me an absolute godrun along with the teddy bear and I just steamrolled the games, also binking a $25 HT MTT for a $1,400 bonus.
On the other hand, on Thursday night my internet connection went off during the session and I had problems getting my back-up on for a while, eventually saving only four tables. The whole thing cost me about $400 bucks and so I am going to get a mobile internet today which I’ll constantly plugged in to my computer as it is simply worth it when I am playing these kind of stakes.
I got rewarded on the next two days which turned out to be the best two days of my entire sit & go career. I have earned $4,200 including rakeback on Friday and added another $1,700 on Saturday which put me much closer to the highest stakes there are on PokerStars at the moment - $200s. I lost some on Sunday though and so it will take some more time before I eventually get there. To be honest, I am not even feel like playing them yet anyway, my EV ROI is around 0% at the $60/$100s which is pretty decent considering that I do 12-14 table but I am positive I could make it to 1 or 2% eventually.
I am going to drive my girlfriend to her mom’s now, she will be staying for a week and I am planning on earning 100,000 VPPs in seven days. This is going to be an important test for me as the success of this is crucial to whether or not I will be able to make the SNE this year! Wish me luck!
