Waiting for my Premier League Month to begin

I decided to go for a Premier League spot. Now let's see how it goes.
Send PM

I played.................................


Thirteen     $1  90 man turbos

Cashed 6 times  $30.94   -$13.00   =   $17.94



Twenty four .50c 90 man turbos

Cashed 3 times     $4.97  -$12  =  -$7.03


One  $1  45 man non-turbo

Cashed once         $2.45  -  $1   =  $1.45


Five  .50c  45 man turbos

Cashed twice          $4.04  -  $2.50   =  $1.54


One  .50c  360 man turbos

DNC                                                          = -$0.50


One  .55c Hot Turbo MTT

Cashed once         $0.95  -  $0.55   =  $0.40



Thirty Three .10c 360 man turbos

Cashed five times     $3.01  -  $3.30  =  -$0.29



Fourteen .02c 990 man hyper turbos

Cashed once     $0.25  -  $0.28  =   -$0.03



Twelve  .10c      $50 Gtd MTTs

Cashed seven times   $2.90  -  $1.20  =  $1.70



Profit $15.18  

and please ignore the few errors in "Part 1" - I posted that entry after 3 days of poker (which is what I can put in per week 100% at this point in my life), and I ommitted some buy-ins.

lol, I've posted this entry after this weekends similar session, I hope it's correct,,,but read on, as it isn't the point of this story...........

(I hope you understand once you've finished reading why I say this).

..........And now,  more importantly,

Time for the story.

I got to play in the $11 Big Bang tournament and some really fun "live training" home games MTTs for play money.  I final tabled 3 of them and have to admit that they were, surprisingly,  just as gratifying as any real money MTT that I've played in the last two weeks.

Sure the 12th place in the 3000 player MTT had a $53 first place price (0.10c buy-in)


then one could say the $11 Big Bang had a $1500 first place price for a $0 buy-in.

If you understand the above comparison and just add the play money home games to the mix,  you will hopefully see that the point of this whole "two part"  blog topic is only one thing....................VOLUME and MINDSET.

The money isn't even in the story........................and that play chip home game session just cemented that in my outlook and goals of accepting that my game is improving.

I can feel it no matter if the total for the last two weeks was positive or negative.

Hey, I'm just sharing what's helped me, and thought it might help some of you see the whole "luck vs skill" factor as simply as I do.

It's a massive weight off my shoulders mentally and this blog will always be here as a reminder if I start to struggle a little or just if I want to have a laugh at my ramblings. And just make the right decisions with each and every hand....................regardless......  


Hope you at least enjoyed reading it.


Until next week......   Cya.
