JZA80Turbo's Poker Career


Grinding through micros test

By: JZA80Turbo @ 01:40 (EDT) / 258 / Comment ( 0 )
After getting fed up of Sit & Go's donkeys calling shoves with 83 and making 2 pairs on the flop against my AA, KK, AK type of hands and losing 1.50$ each time, I figured I'd give 2 NL (0.01$/0.02$) 6-max cash games a go.

Here's the result after 100 total hands on 3 tables (~33 hands per table) over a period of 20 minutes:

Table 1
Start : 2.00$/End : 2.36$
Profit : 0.36$

Table 2
Start : 2.00$/End : 2.04$
Profit : 0.04$

Table 3
Start : 2.00$/End : 2.07$
Profit : 0.07$

Total profit: 0.47$ over 20 minutes (or 1.41$/hour)

Let's say I play for 8 hours on three tables once again and manage to stay +- 1$ within the range of 1.41$/hour profit, I'd manage 10.28$ to 12.28$ profit to my current 28.71$ bankroll.

If I can play one 8 hour day per week and another 8 seperate hours during week nights, that's 20.56$ to 24.56$ weekly.

Now multiply this by the numbers of weeks in a year and you get 1069.12$ to 1277.12$ profit per year playing 2NL with 3 tables for 16 hours per week. By that time, I'll be hitting 5NL and even 10NL.

In any case, my goal being 1000$ by next fall, I now know how much time I need to put into grinding in order to reach the grand.

Done for the night, gotta start two term papers and study for my 2two University midterms coming up. Bed time, peace.
