Wow.. It's now been approximately 500MTTs since I signed up with a coach, and I'm quite excited about the changes that have developed in my game, and if I continue to be "trainable" and continue to make positive adjustments.. I'm even more excited of the thought on what is to come in 2015.

I've decided to deviate a little from posting MTT $ winnings since the relevance of this now, doesn't weigh in majority towards my mindset anymore.  For me now, it's about condition-based performance where I'm playing only when I feel (or think) I can make decisions critically for an entire session.  Pre-game conditioning is one of the factors which has shifted high on my agenda now.  

But I have taken a generic snapshot of MTT results, which I'll continue to do with the next series of updates.  Will be interesting to see what the next 500 shows.


Alot of what I've been working on the past 3 months is re-modelling my push/fold/call game up to 20BB.  Turbos are seriously great for these, so probably around 350-400 out of 527 I've played since August have been Turbos.

I think my hilight achievement (results) for the last few months, and probably for this year has been FTing the FT Paid Only 3K Turbo MTT twice (2nd/8th) in 8 games.  I knew about this MTT, and pre-August, I thought regging in this tourney was like burning money.  It has the most crazy (FT) bubble dynamic, and simply put, is very hard to cash! 

A slight digression from point, but in my next series of sessions, coach and a buddy of his will be looking over my stats so it's all I've been doing the last few days.

The report below you may/may not find to be relevant toward anything, but I guess it's something you can compare if you use HEM2.


Enjoy the festive season or holidays.. and GL at the tables.
