Keep Going...

Hopefully I run like this all year... Because I definitely like 1500 dollar days happening like once a week... just thought I'd update as to where I'm at..

27k VPP's since January 1st (27% of Supernova!)
$7300 - Game Profit since January 1st
About fifteen Step 1 - Step 4 tickets (I'll be doing these every Sunday from now on as they allow me to play in really high SNG's and really up the rake/day)

Goals: Keep winning, and get to 40k VPP's by February 1st.. wanna finish off Supernova in February and have 10 full months to shoot down Supernova Elite!

Crushing Souls

As the title implies I've done quite well this month, taking my bankroll from 2700 to 9200 in 24 days with stellar rewards yet to be purchased and having earned 26k VPP's... I've been messing around quite a bit with different games and approaches to obtaining Supernova Elite, including playing (and beating for around 1700) the 104 double or nothings/Step Tournaments/my standard 16-60 dollar 18 man games. I'm at a point now that I simply want to get Supernova Elite as quickly as possible.. and I know Steps can be a huge way of doing that so I've added them in. (I have over 15 step 2 tickets) I'm probably one of a handful of players to attempt to put in this much volume so shortly after really learning how to play poker... (June of 2009) and my first 38 was pretty much this year.. and I've been crushing this month over like a 5k game sample and am looking to keep going... I don't even have Supernova yet as I started on Stars with 5 bucks in November, but I'm a little over 25% of the way there and were not even a month in, so when I get it I can put in a ton more volume as rakeback is a huge part of beating the current SNG game...

Some run good.. and some run bad

Well its mostly been run good... which is good! Since January first I've made about $3800 + FPP's + stellar rewards (I've cleared the first two 50 dollar bonuses and all five 10 dollar bonuses) I've also earned 13.3k VPP and a ton of FPP's which I am pretty happy about.. still not on track for SNE but im hoping to get to 10k this month through sng profit and then start into the 119's next month... (I've already cracked into the 60's..) I've only managed to play around 1600 sng's.. so thats way behind my goal so ill be looking to pick that up as well.. I've started some coaching though and my student is pretty chill so I'm looking to continue with that as well... I ran badly today and lost about 500... so not really too big a deal as its somewhere between 13 and 30 buyins... so not much of a downswing at all but enough to be frustrating... (I know the 60's/38's will be pretty swingy so its per expectation... and beyond that life is good... sooo I wish you all the best of luck and good luck grinding..

Kickin off the New Year

Well were through the first few days of the New Year and because of that its time to update.... the New Year for me began with the worst session I've ever had playing the 38/27/16 dollar buyin SNG's... managed to lose about 2k in a day... I grinded it the 3400 roll down to about 1700, moved down to strictly the 16's... and in the next two days managed to take the roll to a new peak of 5500 and am back in the 38's/27's... im running about 5 tables of each in my 22 tabling sessions (I 22 table continuously not in sets thanks to some poker software) and the rest are 16's. The conclusion to that little rant is that since the first im up 2100+ rakeback on a little over 1100 sng's, not bad for 4 days work.. I'm currently not on track to hit SNE BUT I'm still confident ill be able to do it... just need to get a rhythm going in the 38's and the 60's.. Im currently sitting 10th or so on two leaderboards on stars as well so hopefully I can hold and cushion the roll that way as well.. Until then may the poker gods bless you with winning flips... cause when they dont its a shitter of a downswing..
