xflixx' Week #31 - Making plans, breaking plans

By: PSO-xflixx @ 08:25 (EDT) / 947 / Comment ( 0 )

I already wrote about all the big volume plans I had for August in last week's post. Well, I didn't exactly get to grind a lot of VPPs yet as I was keeping myself busy and entertained playing and making videos for the Grinding it UP! challenge. At least both my challenge and my regular bankroll have been growing since last week.

Here are this week's results:

VPP Counter 2013: 67.124


Only 2 real days of playing brings me to a decent result money- but not volumewise:


Yesterday's sunday grind didn't hold any bigger cashes for me but I was able to pull out of the red numbers with an unexpected cash in the $1 rebuy. I only played a $50 schedule as I had some early appointments today.

In general I feel I'm moving towards a higher ROI in MTTs although I don't really keep track of my results playing mainly on my iPad. At least my bankroll seems to be either about the same or a little bigger when I get back to the cash grind on Monday mornings.

Grinding it UP! Challenge

Today I'm starting into week 3 of the challenge and I was able to move the bankroll to a new peak of $380 this morning. Looking forward to the first 25NL shots as soon as I am beyond the $400 mark.

Day #10

Day 10.5

Don't forget about the great new August promos like Happy Hour which fits perfectly into my schedule as I tend to play my first challenge session at around 9:00 AM in the morning and hop into the 200NL pool at 4 in the afternoon.

Have a great start into the new week all!
