Starting from Scratch


Silver Star

By: mytton @ 16:05 (EDT) / 622 / Comment ( 2 )
Just hit the 75VPP this month to reach Silver Star! At the start of the month I would never have expected to do this, but the special reduced Silver requirement, along with my steady grinding at 2NL has seen me there in just two weeks.

I am ignoring the PSO league this month, partly because I have no VPP from last month to qualify for decent prizes. Instead I am concentrating solely on 2NL cash tables and it's a case of so far so good. My win rate over two weeks is around 26bb/100 over 4000 plus hands. I have just started moving up from two tables at a time to three. I''d like to get comfy with three then extend to four if all goes well.

It's risky to extrapolate targets from current progress but if I carry on as i am, playing a few hours a day of 2,3 or 4 table 2NL, I could well hit the $200 bankoll early next month. Then I move up to 2c/5c NL which i epect to be a lot harder. Most of my profit is coming from big pots against total fish - with fewer of these around  I suspect my winrate will plummet. But that's in the future. In the meantime I intend to keep grinding these nice 2NL tables.
