It's been awhile since I updated here, so should probably go ahead and do that :) As is usually the case with my absence of posts, I've been running bad and playing worse... I'm starting to get back on track now which feels awesome, but this only occurred after analyzing where I was blowing away my chips... The leak wasn't at 10/20, or 200/400 (for those who play SNG's and know what I mean), the leak was after I had been playing continuously for five hours... after playing 10-15 tables, and table selecting aggressively for about five hours, my play turns to shit. I noticed myself doing things that made no sense, I saw plays that were obviously bad and found that they were almost all taking place towards the middle/end of my day. The last few SnG's were fine, as when I'm 2-5 tabling my last couple games I'm able to regain focus and just try to end strong... But during my first 5 hours my play is much stronger, so it seems I'm going to HAVE to get up earlier, and break my play into 2 blocks. The first block will obviously last 5 hours, from 8am to 1pm - after which I intend to take a 75 minute break until 2 15 to do whatever I want, before loading again and ending the second session at about 5 30. In order to do this I think I'll probably have to make the latest time I go to sleep midnight, as I hate working all day on less than 8 hours of sleep, and I usually get 9. Supernova Elite is becoming more of a prospect, and I'm start to make some adjustments to my playing schedule to make it a more realistic possibility before November 1st. The first adjustment is cutting out MTT's for the rest of the year, this means missing WCOOP and Sunday MTT's.... Doing this could very well be -ev tbh, but it should probably be close enough that I don't really care that much.. I'm well into 400k VPP's now, and I've been playing MTT's every Sunday throughout the year and played a ton of MTT's during SCOOP - I am taking a vacation in July which will cut into grind time, but I went to STL so those two should balance out.... Anyway enough ranting, getting a little tired and wanna relax before getting back into it tomorrow...

Starting to climb back into profit, things have been going well for me the past week... Unfortunately it seems I won't be headed to Vegas at all this year, buuuut that just means I'll be grinding online a lot and putting up some decent numbers (hopefully) with some of the regs out for the WSOP :)

Soooo the Canucks lost, and Vancouver rioted... I don't think the second in light of the first should surprise anyone, although its certainly obvious it "shouldn't" have happened... Vancouver woke up at 7 am the morning after the Canucks defeat (and shortly after the riot) to clean up downtown, not that the good comes close to outweighing the bad, but you gotta give credit where its due imo....

As poorly as I'm doing, my horses are doing that much better... for every SNG I lose it seems Maz and BPP slam dunk, Push has nearly taken what I've lost playing MTT's and won the same amount... These guys both deserve it, because as far as I can tell they have sick work ethics... Beyond that I'm a touch drunk, some of my action is available for those able to invest/interested, thanks and gl at the tables!

Been getting a little murdered lately - I've been putting in a ton of work with my game, and I'm exceptionally confident that I'm getting smacked by variance... I've made some mistakes, but no one plays perfectly - Hopefully the run bad ends sooner than later, but till then there's nothing to do but ship it in, cross my fingers.... aaaaaand pray :)

As per the title, I had a really solid week with respect to the SNG Leaderboards, finishing 1st and 4th in the Jupiter board, ($300 and above SNG's) and 3rd and 8th in the Saturn Leaderboards ($100-$300 SNG's). The result was a hefty $3050 in bonuses for the week, which is obviously a pretty nice pickup. I've been putting in a lot of volume lately, much more than is my standard, and I've been doing the same with studying. I've been managing my time much more efficiently and have also spent a good amount of time reading Outliers, a book suggested from one of my business partners. The book has really helped influence my work ethic, and is something I highly recommend to those who have not yet read it. Managing my time efficiently has also been something I've been improving - as well as hitting the gym a few times a week... Good luck at the tables :)
