Hey guys!
A little bit about myself : My name is Valentin and I'm from Romania. I started playing poker in late 2010 and after a full year of fishing around I finally decided to take the game seriously. In dec 2012 I deposited 20$ and after watching lots of videos on PSO and Pokerstrategy I began playing.
Started off with 50c 45m & 90m turbos and soon moved to
1$ & 1.50$ ones. I began adding some 1-2$ mtts to my daily grind and not far after I came out 2nd in one and took down 430$. So here I was with a BR of 600$!! and what did I do? I cashed out 400 and continued with even more mtts, higher ones too. Big mistake! in just a couple of weeks variance
took me down.
After a small break I deposited 100$ and started with 1.50$ ko 90m ( 15min blinds )Played these for about one month and once my BR got to around 300$ I added in 2.50$ 90m and 4.50 180m. After grinding these for about 3 months I got up to 1.2k but I had to cash all out due to personal needs.
So here I am again with a BR of 100 bucks.

I'm going to play 50-50s this month and see how it goes mostly because reg 90m sngs are too exhausting
( 5+h sessions ). If things don't go well I'm planning to move back and play regs.

Here are my goals for July :

*Play only 1.50$ fifty-fifties

*Maintain Goldstar this means I'll have to play a min of 140 games / day

*Have a 5% roi ( 7.5c/game x 4200 = 315$ )

*Update this blog every couple of days

*Beg Andy and Dave for a 50-50 live training

Hopefully by the end of the month my BR should be around $550

100$ initial BR + 315 profit + 25$ vpp cash + ~ 125$ from fpps by playing 70fpp & 33 fpp satellites

I will play short & sharp sessions of 40-45min and between 18-24 tables at once ( there's good trafic for 50s)

Wish me luck in this crazy challenge of mine! Hope I stay motivated for the hole month.

Keep you guys posted

Things didn't rly go so well. I played about 1.5k games and it was all good until I went onto a big downswing due to 5 horrible sessions in a row ( around -10BI each). Ended up with around 25$ profit out of those 1.5k games so I decided to stop the 50-50 frenzy for now. I started playing reg sngs about 3 days ago and it all went pretty smooth.

My new goals for July :

*play 5-6 reg sng sessions / week

*maintain Goldstar

*play 2-3k 2nl/5nl 6-max zoom hands / day

*qualify for premier skill league via 1.10$ qualifier

*update this thread every 2 days ( for real this time ) with graphs, hands etc.

I ran pretty horrible at the beginning of the session but I managed to FT 5 out of 9 remaining SNGs which brought me a nice profit of 40$. I also made a deep run in the $1.10 1k cap mtt. Ended up on 17 unfortunately and took $6.

I didn't do well in the 1.50 kos, lots of bubble busts and not even one top 3. Played some mtts too of 1 - 3$ and like 2 x 5$ micromillion events but it didn't rly work out.

Here's the graph for the past 2 days :

Things went really well lately. I've managed to hit my second FT this week but again, I came out just short:

I had some problems with PT4 and I had to reinstall postgreSQL. Lost the database but it doesn't really matter because I know most of the regs on 1.50 & 2.50 and have notes on them. Here is the graph for the last week. The volume sucks but I ran good ^^

I lost a lot of time this July with 50s but it was a good month overall I made a profit of around 400 bucks.
My goals were pretty ambitious considering that a reg sng/mtt session takes from 4 to 6 hours so I didn't have enough time for 2k hands/day @ zoom. That's why I failed to maintain goldstar, I only made 1.6k vpps. Having 2 x fpps and an entry to the 100k gold+ freeroll is kinda nice but I don't think the bonus hours I have to put in are worth it. I also managed to qualify for the premier skill league just by playing 10x 1.10$ qualifiers and even made a nice profit out of them ^^

Another deep, another bust 33/1736 in the $2.75 slow mtt. I had to flip for my life in the tourney and I lost http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...728_0912C2048E. Its a bit frustrating coz I keep making this deep runs but I always end up just short. The only thing I can do is to stay positive, play my A game and get in volume. I'm sure "the big win" will eventually come.

I'm moving to $2.50 180m turbos this month and I'll grind them until I get a nice BR for 3.50+r. I was thinking of playing $4.50 180m but the traffic isn't that good in the morning/afternoon. They only open at a good rate after 18:00 or so and I wanna finish grinding by that time. 2.50s on the other hand have good traffic at any given time. There aren't many regulars playing them in the morning so I think its a lot better this way. I'll start my session at 10:00, play till 13:00, have launch and then play another session till about 17:00 o clock.
