Hi guys; I managed to move up to the $3.50's, so far it's been ok. The games are just as soft as the $1.50's was imo, and without sounding arrogant; I expect to be able to beat the $3.50's for a 4-5% ROI! Currently around 900 games in and about +$127. Here is the $3.50 graph so far; swingy but nothing special. Here is my overal graph/stats; Games played: 5397 ROI: 6.2%
Work/grind eithtic is paying of. From being -50 buy-ins down over the last couple of days; I'm finally back to positive and turned a 50buy-in deficit into 5+ buy-ins lol. So, effectively I've had a 850k game break even stretch... I hope I don't swing much more in the next few hundred games, it was painful! Moral of my story though is; going to grind through on up whilst on a slight heater.
Hi guys just a post in regards to achieving volume/motivation. I always I thought I lacked motivation because of the limits being boring etc. I think I have found out what the real cause of it is though; [b] variance[/b] of both natures, good and bad. Isn't it funny that for the past few weeks I've been grinding my average weekly grind volume has been poor for what you can achieve in hypers; for example, in any given 7day week my "average" has been close to 500 at best. I've now understood why this is the case; I ran at EV/maybe slightly above EV at some points but it didn't deviate much from what I "should" of been winning. Lose term "should" Nothing is guranteed in where poker is concerned. Anyway; so fast forward on to week 3 of my challenge & 2 days in to my new week; guess what? I've already played more games in that 2 day period than I have in a 7day period. I've played like nearly 600 games! Why you may ask? Well;' as stated in post post earlier; it's all about varience. I'm running terrible, but for some reason; I still want to grind and am more motivated to do so. A lot of it is because I'm in the thought process of "Oh noes, I've lost x-mount of $$$" I'm down a staggering $55.00 (36buy-ins) and at one point was down $75 (50buyins) and it looks like I'm going in to decline yet again but I've literally just finished this session and thought to myself; I'm going ot post about it. Not so much abotu running nbad, I'm not to bothered; but more about what motivates a grind. Isn't it interesting that when we're losing we spend more time at the tables as opposed to when we're winning? Kinda counter productive imo and you shoudl be playing more when you're running hot. Graph for anyone remotely interested in what I'm saying then check back my previous variance free sort of weeks and see the difference; It's not interesting really, it's not a "omg I'm running bad whine post" I've been through most of my hands and it seems the vast majority is down to coolers/bad luck as the spots I'm playing are no different, infact I'd argue to say my calling ranges/shoving ranges have improved over the weeks. GL to ya. Hopefully willl be posting some point in the next few days saying I'm on a upswing and intending to continue grinding though as much as possible!
