As some of you may know my next poker goal is to grind a Tuba trhough HUsngs,http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/blogs/post/?id=33821.

So what I need is a BR of about $1000 so I can cash out half of it and get a used cheap Tuba.

I joined a HU group and have been getting good help from Sverigelottn CannonLee and other wizzards so I'm feeling quite confident about it.

I'll start posting my daily results in this thread for anyone that wants to follow:

these are my last 20 HUs results:

10/14/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/4 $13.28
10/14/2012 $11 Saturday Duel [NLHE, Heads-Up, $15K Gtd] $10.00+$1.00 88/2330 $46.60
10/14/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 2 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/2 $6.64
10/14/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 3/4 $0.00
10/14/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 2 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/2 $6.64
10/14/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 2 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/2 $6.64
10/14/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 2 Players] $3.32+$0.18 2/2 $0.00
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/4 $13.28
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 2 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/2 $6.64
10/13/2012 Saturday Duel Sat: $2.87 Heads-Up Turbo [4 Players] $2.75+$0.12 1/4 $11.00
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 4/4 $0.00
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 2 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/2 $6.64
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/4 $13.28
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/4 $13.28
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 1/4 $13.28
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 4/4 $0.00
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 3/4 $0.00
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 4 Players] $3.32+$0.18 3/4 $0.00
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 2 Players] $3.32+$0.18 2/2 $0.00
10/13/2012 $3.50 NL Hold'em [HU, Turbo, 2 Players] $3.32+$0.18 2/2 $0.00

current bankroll $288. I'll start playing the $7 ones as soon as I'm up $300, so I gess this should start today. If I fall back to $250 I'll go back to $3.5s (the nitty way). I'm not good with posting graphs and stuff... I'm a little lazy for these things, so I got myself tracked in Sharkscope and PokerProlabs for anyone who wants to see me dig out of my tournament winnings hole (the pokerprolabs graph isn't up yet though).

For those who follow this trhead I promise to post a video of me playing the tuba as soon as I buy one (so... maybe you actually should keep away from this thread now!).

And if anyone here, at any point of time, turns out to be my neighbor I promise not to wake you up with with that anoying sound.

Last weekend was awesome. two big cashes in headsup mtts.
11/17/2012 $11 Saturday Duel [NLHE, Heads-Up, $15K Gtd] $10.00+$1.00 5/2048 $563.20
11/18/2012 $10.50 NL Hold'em [Super-Knockout, Heads-Up, Turbo] $10.00+$0.50 2/256 $256.00

With this I'd have more than enough to start playing the 15s but since I wasnt doing quite good on the 3.5s I decided to play some 7s before going up to the 15s. Results are good for me though, I finally got a positive ROI in husngs over the last 90 days, 1%, so I should start with the 15s soon... As for now, I've got half a tuba in my pokerstars account.

so this is my hu graph. It is autoupdatable, which means I don't have to post every time, and it wouldn't make any sense to do so:

Hey Labs, as always I'm really happy to see PSO members doing well. I know in the hands of Cannon you will get good advice.

For the life of me though I don't know in Poker terms what a tuba is, let alone half a tuba.

A Tuba to me is a wind instrument.

In the words of effsea I'm a little hiccup right now so help me out here.

I just played my first 10 matches on the 15s. Definately wasn't playing my A game (and I also doubt I have one to begin with), was running bad and playing bad.... so.. these are the results:

11/23/12 11:22:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 2 $0.00
11/23/12 11:04:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 2 $0.00
11/23/12 10:47:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 2 $0.00
11/23/12 10:29:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 1 $28.58
11/23/12 10:10:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 1 $28.58
11/23/12 9:52:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 2 $0.00
11/23/12 9:21:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 2 $0.00
11/23/12 3:15:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 2 $0.00
11/23/12 3:09:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 2 $0.00
11/23/12 2:34:00 PM $15.00 NL Hold'em [HU, 2 Players] $14.29+$0.71 2 2 $0.00


You can see my graph on my second post itt, I was going to post the current graph here, but realized it updates itself through the link I used to post the image, so these games represent the last big downtick on the graph posted previously. 2 out of 10, definately the time to stop and play some spacecadet pinball.

royalraise85, do you want to make a propbet on the biggest downswing I'll have on my next month?

Well, It's been a while since my last update. Also, It's been a while since I played at all on PokerStars.
The reason was that I was on tilt after a ridiculous -ev run.
(last 350 games on stars, mainly 7s)


To run down the tilt I started grinding on the money I had sent to FTP in the reopening (20$ transfer just to see what's that all about) and ended up doing quite well.
My winnings so far.

after the bonuses and stuff I ended up with close to 2k (something I've never seen before in my poker accounts hehe)

I started playing 1$husngs and some 1$ mtts as as well. Then I binked some cashes eraly on and started with the 5$ sngs in no time. I grinded 5$s for the month of december. In Janurary I started with the 10$s and binked mid limit(for 5s and 10s) leaderboard.


I'm obviously pretty happy with my results so I can only think on moving up and winning more.For this month I started playing the 20$ turbo husngs, but the action on that level is quite slow on FTP (some games take more than 10 minutes to load), so in order to get more volume I started playing some 10 hypers, which I didn't think I would enjoy as much as I did (hypers are hella fun).

I had a rough start in the 20$ though, slow action, and when i get it I end up in a regwar. These are the results for the 20$T+10$HT's for this month so far.




Well, as for the tuba, according to my previous plan I would withdraw half of it to buy it now. But things changed, I realized that 1k wouldn't be enough to buy one and pay for lessons etc. So I'll just keep grinding. I will however withdraw 1k or something by the end of this month and use it to pay the rent hehe
