So I thought that I would post a goal and try to get myself a little more involved and hopefully actually get some more development out of my volume.
CLIFFS: Get in 1000 HYHUSNGs during the golden SNG promotion on Stars, Bink a golden SNG, maintain a >3% EV ROI.
A little about me
I think that I joined the forum in February when I stumbled across it while looking for HYHUSNG information. I started to focus on these games this year and after finding Mersenneary’s ebook I have managed to plug a lot of leaks and correct a lot of misconceptions that I had about Hyper HUSNGs. After reading the book about four or five times things started to soak in and making sense and I have had some pretty good success since then. Below is my graph for all my games at the $7s, anything higher I am about breakeven but I usually play higher when on mobile and do not have the HH (sorry guys for not rematching :p )
I have been a pretty strapped for cash until after June so I have been grinding out the $7 level. This is probably a good thing because I am able to put in volume against weaker players and still work on my game and improve before I move up. I have managed a pretty good return but I really need to start to play more games. To be honest I have been busy outside of poker so I am not beating up myself over the volume but I really want to make sure that I make the most out of this promotion and get in some serious volume (for a newb like me). Since February 10th (when I started actually working on my game and putting in work) I have had some pretty good success at the small stakes games. Below is my graph and you will notice that I actually have not put in a lot of volume in any particular month. I actually typically have some soft tournaments up while I grind the HUSNGs however with the promotion I am going full out any trying to get in ~2500 games this month (I leave for Vegas June 25 so month ends then). I am also moving out of my house the weekend of the 22nd so it’s not going to be a breeze to get games in (and I am not 100% sure where I will be playing this weekend).
As you can see in the graph I have been working though a lot of variance this month, and by posting this challenge I am hoping to ensure that I push through the variance and get in the volume and maximize the value from this promotion. I mean aren’t a lot of these challenges self-fulfilling so I am aiming for the volume and expected that if I stick to it that the variance will even out. And by posting the challenge I will be forcing myself to update the forum and get in that volume.
I am hoping to post daily graphs and maybe some other questions and links to threads that I have questions about. There are still a lot of stops that I am losing money in which I think that I can play better and also many times that I am unsure of what my default play should be. Tomorrow might be a small volume day, it is cheap date night and need to make the most of every nickle but I will be putting together daily updates.
