How we Doing

By: Stitches_Mtl @ 18:44 (EST) / 62 / Comment ( 2 )

Hello all,

I guess its as good a time as any to give you an update on my Time Vault Challange progress.

After several weeks of exclusively playing free rolls, I decided to bite the bullet and make a small reload so I could take advantage of the 100K free rolls promotion and play at the Micro stakes. So there’s good and bad news. The good news is I have respected most of my Time Vault commitments and tripled my $20 reload investment. The bad news is I find myself having to fight the urge to sit at the higher stakes levels. I will share my honest opinion on my Time Vault results on a scale of 1 to 10.

9/10-Tilt management
7/10-Bankroll management
8/10-Disciplined Table Image
7/10-Increase my MTT ITM % from X to 15%
10/10- Only play micro stakes until I have control of goals A-B-C
6/10- Spend 4hrs per week at PSO for instruction.
5/10- Solicit feedback and participate in others blogs.
7/10- Attend weekly live trainings.
10/10- I will not deviate (no mater how tempting) from the Bankroll Management guideline structure outlined on PSO.
10/10- Track and monitor progress.
7/10- Eradicate FPS (Fancy Play Syndrome) from my game.( Leave this to the big boys on TV)
8/10- Move from Loose-Passive fish to Non Loose-Passive fish.
8/10- Focus –Adjust - Re-adjust during all stages of MTT.
10/10-Enjoy the game for what it is

I intend to write a whole other Blog on my tilt management enlightenment, as I believe it has been the biggest contributing factor and allowing all the other goals to kick in.
I never bothered to track my progress in the past,(not that anyone would ever want to track that bad of a losing streak) however I'm finding that by doing this it forces you to have better bankroll management and allows you to see at a glance where you have success and failure.

That’s all for now
Thanks to anyone who provides feedback on my road to recovery...
