Finally Embracing MTT Games!!!


My Quest for Silver Status has Started...

By: ggervacio @ 19:54 (EDT) / 460 / Comment ( 2 )

November signals the start of my quest to obtain Silver status at Pokerstars.  Though my plan is to grind the $3.5 SNGs, I decided to stick to $1.5 level for my initial run.  I started a trial run for the $3.5 during the last days of October, and I know for certain that my confidence level is not there yet. Today I managed to play 23 SNGs in about 4 hours, playing 6 tables at a time.  I was able to get 26 VPP and a small profit. 

$1.5 SNG gives more VPP than the $3.5.  You get 1.16 VPP for the $1.5 while you get 2.15 VPP for the $3.5.  That means I will get 0.17 more VPP if I play x2 $1.5 than if I play x1 $3.5.  This probably something you may consider if you are going for VPPS.  Maybe the catch is in the Prize.  Maybe the $3.5 pays more.  Anyway, I will get more bankroll mileage if I play $1.5 and my confidence level will be much higher... so I guess better results.  But tha's just me again nitting up again.

But my $3.5 Cowboy challenge is not over yet.  I still have about 20 buyins left from the fund that I allocated.  So I will still definitely be playing some more $3.5.  Especially if I do not have much time to grind for 4 hours each day.  

So, 26 VPPs down...  474 VPPs to go...  If I can maintain this pace, Good day and good luck!
