Hi everyone. Making some goals for 2015

Aiming this year to make 50k - 75k + on stars / ftp combined and make supernova.   
Will be playing mostly $30 hypers and $60 turbo husngs on pokerstars and $50 hypers and $100 turbo husngs on Full Tilt
Been also studying different formats as I would like to be solid in more forms of poker so will be grinding cash games this year also. 

I am still running my owning stake and coaching players.
Also been doing video reviews for players outside my staking and did some videos for this site last year and appreciated the good feedback they got.     
I will also at some point take some time aside to battle to get into higher divisions. 

Goals
1 Make 50 - 75k combined on all sites and formats
2 Make supernova
3 Keep beating $100 turbos and $50 hypers and move up to $200 turbos and $100 hypers.  
4 Battle 100s turbo division and become a member
5 Be a good winner in the cash games, keep studying and working on my game and move up the stakes. 

I will try my best to keep the forum updated better than last year with graphs and answer any questions you guys have, Arron.

Congratulation! Nice to see your results!

Hi Arron!

I've same goals for this year. There is only one small difference with buy-in levels. I start from the lowest level and try to beat $15 hypers and $30 turbos end of this year.

I am also still running my owning stake, but I have full-time job therefore hard to improve my game and play appropriate quantity at same time.

What can you say about FTP traffic and FTP players? Is it better than PS? Are players weaker than PS? Which site do you prefer to play from lower stakes?

Keep going! I hope you can achieve your yearly goals!

Best wishes,

lecsito

Hi Lecsito There are more

Hi Lecsito 

There are more lobbies on FTP but less players.  Pokerstars has more players but has divisions you will have to battle if you want to open sit higher.  Id recommend open sitting on lots of sites as the action is getting slower with recreationals playing the spin and go games and learn a new format also.  I wish you well with your goals too, Arron

Hi Arron, nice to see you are

Hi Arron, nice to see you are still doing well and good luck with your goals. I am interested in your thoughts when you say "sitting on lots of sites". Do this mean you think there is money to be made on different sites other than pokerstars and full tilt? Also when you say "learn a new format" it is something that i have been thinking about for a while now. Hyper HUSNG are pretty tough now (from a 7's, 15's reg) and the player pools seem to be dropping. Would Spin and Go's be a format to really push for a large +EV edge? I know is obviously needed with the high rake, the fact you play for x2 the Buy in majority of the time etc. When Spin and Go's become 2 handed the games are a certainly softer than HUSNG heads up matches and with a new HUD for Spin and Go's vs a large pool of rec's is seems they may be profitable 

Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks and GL at the tables

Hi Ben, hope the grinds going

Hi Ben, hope the grinds going well for you too.  

The action is getting slower that's why I would recommend open sitting on as many sites as possible.  The more husng lobbies your open sitting the more games you will get.  As for spin and goes, I don't play them right now but I see lots of hyper players leaving the division to play them so I'm guessing there is money to be made at them.  I have yet to see a players graph for them over a large sample but I would still imagine there is a lot of variance in them.

Hey Arron, great graph at the

Hey Arron, great graph at the 30's. GL with your grind. I wondered your thoughts on improving your HU poker game. Do you have a routine for learning the game or any useful tips. Do you leakfinder your own game on PT4 after sessions? I am really trying hard to improve but seem overloaded (bad excuse i know) with Flopzilla, Icmizer, Will Tipton's book, PT4 metrics, GTO etc and as i do not have any sort of poker group to bounce ideas around i wondered your thoughts on improving independently or is that a leak in itself? 

I seem to be losing too much EV in my Big blind especially.

Hi BenI mostly review poker

Hi Ben

I mostly review poker tracker games after reg battles or where I feel my opponent may have adjusted in game and want to be one step ahead of them the next time we battle, I am mostly looking to parts of their game I can exploit where they are too aggressive or too passive.  Most of the work I do is off the felt making sure my defense strategy vs common reg strategies are well protected and balanced otherwise I would be easy to exploit in certain situations that come up often.  Vs fish I am just playing an exploitable strategy that I feel is the most profitable one as they aren't thinking about ranges so I dont have to worry about how unbalanced I am.

I would recommend getting a coach you would want to learn from or getting a subsciption on a site like runitonce.  I would also spend a lot of time working on a good readless preflop charts vs regs and constructing balanced postflop ranges.  The more time you spend constructing ranges the more you will become familiar with what hands you should be barreling and checking back and what hands can protect you on future streets vs floats and probes which aren't good enough to 3 barrel for value etc.  

Also I would surround yourself with poker players who you can learn from and get yourself into some sort of skype groupchat.

Hey guys been a while since i

Hey guys been a while since i posted.  Been busy studying and battling and doing some coaching, over 1/3 of the way there and on course to get into 60s. Also took this month off $30 hypers division to try spins as I heard the action was really good there.  Here is my graph so far for 15s

https://i.imgur.com/oo9H7kK.png

I will move up to 30s when I have 1200 games with 5% spins ev so hopefully don't run horrible coming into the last 1/4 of the games. Im really enjoying the action in them so far, makes a big difference than having to wait for lobbies then waiting for someone to sit you when you can just open 4 tables whenever you want.  Not to mention people are playing recklessly loose which you can really take advantage of playing a solid 3 handed strategy. Once you get down to the last two your gona have a edge if your successful in husngs.  

What my spins grind looks like, I made up my own simplified hud cause i wasn't really liking the other ones when multi tabling.

Hey everyone, finished the 1200 games, will be moving up to multi tabling 30s.

Was mostly just playing on intuition but been putting a lot of time into learning the most profitable opening and 3bet shove ranges.  Its been fun learning a new game. I thought i would hate spins but I'm actually really liking the action in them so far.

Been studying and playing $30

Been studying and playing $30 spins lately. Here is a up to date graph of my journey at spins so far.

https://i.imgur.com/ucQ9SqO.png

Below is chips won / lost from all positions at different stack sizes over 42,000 hands which i use for all formats i play.

https://i.imgur.com/7EyLl2G.png

Happy with SB and BUTTON so far, BB is understandably the hardest to make a profit given you have 1bb invested with all your range and have to play out of position around 1/3 times vs a tighter range when the button raises your big blind.

Will continue to keep studying my hu and 3 handed game and hopefully can bink a big multiplier soon.

Ill be leaving for the vegas at the end of the month to play some tournaments and lots of cash games and will try to fit in some sight seeing :)

Hey Vherreral, I didnt buy any packages but i did watch some of Primos streams before he went on holiday.  

I have mostly just been playing on intuition and doing lots of work away from the table with software to make sure Im not making loose 3bet shoves or calls which is probably the biggest mistake you will see in the player pool.

Hey guys, just got back from

Hey guys, just got back from a week in Vegas and dived straight into the spins again.  Didn't want to feel rusty so spent first two days studying the ranges and trying to memorize the most common spots that come up.  

I actually left my hyper division to concentrate on these full time and move up to the highest stakes in them.  

Played my first 1000 games now at 30s, results are below.  My aim is too have around 5% spins ev to move up for 60s.

I didnt really use spinwiz until i played 60s where there is a lot more stronger regs.  As of tomorrow everyone will have to manu reg so be interesting to see what happens.  I expect there to be a lot of battling for a while until some regs stop playing due to losing a lot of money or not having a profitable ev like they had while being able to use spinwiz but we will see.  My aim is to get 4.5% - 5% ev over 3k sample before i move up to 100s so wish me luck.

Amazing stats! I barely got your ITMev at the lowest stakes and you're having them at these high stakes. Very good job. Hopefully I am able to become as strong as you're soon.

Great thread! Following. 

Are you still playing spins on ftp only? What are some of the major differences between ftp and stars when it comes to spins such as waiting time for a game, number of games/hour whilst 4 tabling, reg:rec ratio etc?

Hey KK89.

Yeah im playing 100% on ftp until it closes. The games aren't as fast as stars to load up but you can still get decent volume multi tabling.  Not sure about reg rec ratio but its a smaller player pool so you face a lot of the same regs and you can get a good understanding of how they are playing after a while especially if you take time to study their game of the table.
