Hey guys, I guess you figured I had another fucked up Sunday since I didn’t post anything. Right! It was disgusting. I can play like 80 tournaments every Sunday and get sucked out in 40 of them. In about 25 I lose by flips which I don’t mind much and the rest I actually go in with the weaker hand and don’t suck out, what a surprise… And then you see people who don’t just run good but seem to be flying. Tonight Stars did their best to fuck me in the head again. AA<AQ pre, KK<KQ pre, AK<A9 on a final table, AK on Axx flop vs backdoor flush draw at the final table bubble. Set of 8’s at a itm bubble also vs backdoorflush. Just to share a few nice examples. I know it’s all variance blabla, but fuck off. You see people at the WSOP getting mad if they lose a fucking coin flip and won a bracelet already. WTF! I don’t give a fuck about coinflips, deep I’m a little sad of course but still. What bothers me is that I lose vs fucking 3 outers all the time and even worse so many backdoorflush/straight draws lately. It’s just disgusting. That’s like 2% all the time. People told me “what are you complaining about, you are up almost 50.000$ this year”… So what? I should be up at least 80k by now. I put in so much work but every day its the same fucking story. Sounds a little strange but I deserve more then I get at the moment ;D
Ok, now that I’ve blown off some steam about Jokerstars lets get back to business. I made 8.000 VPP so far this month which bothers me a little cause it’s not enough. I actually want to make about 20k each month to make the 300k by the end of the year with one or two sicker grinding months. And I got a visitor coming in next week+ the trip to Germany so I’m way behind. But the more important decision is to step away from the tournament grind. I am so sick of the huge swings and want a little more security. So I decided to play almost exlusivly 180er player MTT/Sngs. I think that is a great idea, considering I am one of the best there ist at the moment. They are soft as hell and between 6pm and 3am there is plenty of action. I will 12 table them every day when I decide to play at all and after the action slows down I take in some 18 players sngs as well. Obviously I won’t do that on Sundays. Even though the swings are disgusting, I can’t leave out Sundays. This would be like a crime against Poker and I’m only a guy in a downswing not the DOJ ;D I will play some tourneys like the DNG occasionally but my new main focus is on the 180’s. I am certain I will have a roll over 20k in 2-3 months. Also I consider this new game plan a nice practice for my SNE grind next year. Atm I still share a little Sunday Action but the staking days are over and the bills have been paid. Now it’s time for rebuilding for real and I want a big + at the end of every week (Monday to Saturday). I will post some screenshots of hopefully many ships and the goal ist to win 2 or even 3 of the 180’s in just one night. We’ll see how that works out. I also keep track about that a little and I think I will be able to make around 10k each month. Okay, I gotto go to bed now. My sleeping-rhythm is even worse than it was a couple of weeks ago. I can’t even imagine how I will be able to adjust to german standards in 10 days. I’m so used to get up at 5pm for about 2 years now it’s in my system. I will also work on that problem as well.
Ok, so long. I hope you don’t mind the language, I had a couple of beer ;D
Doesn’t matter how unlucky things are going I won’t let the sun go down on me ;-))
