xflixx' Week #30 - July Recap

By: PSO-xflixx @ 03:22 (EDT) / 1147 / Comment ( 4 )

Another month, another review! June wasn't a great month looking at some of my poker results, but July is pretty much making up for it. Here we go:


I didn't get in a lot of volume in, but that's not bothering me at all. I managed to reach my monthly 12.000 VPP goal and results are quite good:

As always I am mainly focused on constantly improving my game. I am looking to increase volume only under the premise of being able to deliver my A-game and recude session times whenever I feel I'm playing B- or even C-game.

Also, it's just way easier mentally to grind out 2k hands at microstakes than it is at midstakes levels for obvious reasons. I think it pays off big to try and balance my daily business between midstakes, challenge grind, training and coaching such that I reduce the chances of burning out quickly just doing one thing. For me personally, motivation for one thing always seems to grow fastest with increasing diversification into other fields.

VPP Counter 2013: 65.678


To my dismay I haven't cashed in a single Micro Millions event this season. However, I didn't get to play in as many as I would have liked with the challenge grind and other real life stuff keeping me from spending tournamnet hours at night times in front of my computer.

Yesterday night I registered for a total of $100 in buy-in expenses into my favorite microstakes tournaments but cashed only in the Bigger $8,80 on 2xxth place which put me down to about $60 in total for that Sunday grind. I could have potentially turned this into a deep run by laying down the following hand - excited to learn how you would have played it.

Grinding it UP! Challenge

I'm in week 1 of my new longterm project and have completed 5 full days of grinding out about 2k hands on each of them with decent success. The current challenge bankroll is at ~$135, I'm already taking a couple of 5NL shots and the first 5 videos are up on my YouTube channel.

I'm planning on running this project for as long as it's going to take me to complete the $8000 bankroll goal, so make sure to take a look sometime! I'm always open to and looking for questions, comments and feedback to address in upcoming episodes of this videoseries.
