A lot of players asked me how I made SNE from $150 in 2012 so I decided to post translated articles from my old dead website where I was posting weekly updates in Slovak language. After last blog I will announce how you can get free coaching from me, enjoy!

21.7.2012

Last week I ended up with a bankroll of $428 moving up to $3,50s. This one it went really well and even though I spent a lot of time watching ice-hockey world champs and missed one day, I played a record 1,408 sit & gos.

After spending 736 games on $3,50s I had $732 in my account, meeting the 100 BI condition for moving up and so I started playing 7-dollar tourneys. I needed only 956 sit & gos to "beat" $3,50s and I am quite happy with that number, especially considering all the connection issues I experianced last week. Here is a graph of my total from $1,50 and $3,50 limits:

Shortly after I got to $7s I started running like god, being on the good side of the setup ridiculously often, so it does not really show on my EV line. After just 300 tourneys it looked like I will be able to move up to $15s in no time, but then I got kinda stuck. Nevertheless, I still managed to pump my bankroll nicely and I am positive I'll start playing $15s by the end of the month and possibly reach total of 10k VPPs for this month. Here is the graph from $7s:

In the meantime I won a ticket for $109 SCOOP Main Event in some kind of a special freeroll and having like 300k with average of 75k it seemed like I might have a nice run. Unfortunately, I then lost a flip for 350k a soon after shoved rest of my stack with AJ, running to AK and busting out shortly before ITM. I suppose this was PokerStars' way of telling me that I should stick to hyper-turbos and leave big MTTs alone.

Today I am having kind of a free day spending some time with my girlfriend and stuff, but tommorow I would like to step up the pace and get one step closer to playing 2,5k sngs a week.
