Default 2014 My Yearly TLB quest + random musings.

Warning Blog intro is long, i'll add some cliffs @ bottom.

KT and the race to TLB Mountain



Fail paintshop as the real kevinthorn is 5th on the yearly lb atm

Ok well as my old blog is/was a cashgame/trying to make nova blog i figured it was time for a fresh start given our dramtic shift in goals/schedule/motivation. (the rules say 2 blogs max per person but meh im sure it will fine) you're welcome to delete ouchbadbeats blog to make room for mine if its an issue,or i guess you could delete one of my old ones if you have to, but surely you would get much more satisfaction putting ouches dream journal in the virtual blender.

So as the title suggests, im kinda interested in seeing if i can top10 yearly tlb on stars (pays out Pokerstars passports with values ranging from $5k-$50k). Idk how realistic that goal is, it wasnt orginally a consideration but after a few people asked me if i was going for it (based on my constant seshing i assume), my interest was piqued and I think it could be fun as i generally lack motivation/goals/targets.

No idea how realistic/possible it is, esp as i dont play high stakes but making a run at it from midstakes sounds like it could be a fun journey/experience to share. If you wanna prop it or something (only for fun, nor booking $50k action or anything) lemme know and we can work something out.

Volume wise, i got dis on lock! been having a lot of trouble sleeping, not tossing and turning i mean serious, likely medical problems with sleep or lack thereof, have been goin 2-3 days without being able to sleep, or even feeling that tired tho my days consist of laying in bed playing poker and other equally strenuous activities so its pretty hard to tire me out lol. When i eventually do get to sleep i often wake up a few hours later unable to go back to sleep /shrugski should go see a doctor about it, but we can do that in december after we win the tlb (srsly tho if the lack of sleep starts affecting my wellbeing/mental state w/e i'll go see a doctor.) Anyway yeh so thats what i've got going on atm, saw some fellow surfers grinding mtts during my sesh, got to watch frog bust which never gets old, had max call down 3 barrels all in w/ ace high vs me and bust me and my lowly K high so hopefully that trend continues and i continue seeing you guys killing the mtts and reppin the elite country club that is surferspoker.com and now over to Kevin Takinawa with the sesh report.

Thanks Sam, So I started my first mtt sesh of 2014 Sunday evening (sesh finished ~ 1am Tuesday morning to give you some insight into my sleep allergy) and it was terrible (in terms of results/soul crushing), no ft's, no f2t's, no mincashes,no stacks . The good thing about mass tabling is you notice beats/results a lot less and can focus on churning through volume/pwning people but when one minute youre mashing the fold hotkey w/ 25 mtts running and 10 minutes later your browsing pornsites because ur down to 3 tables, all in early game and nothing else starts for 45 mintes it still becomes apparent things are not coming up Millhouse. I was/still am expecting a decline in results/rungood soon after all the rungooten but still this was taking it to ice road truckers extremes lol.(i know, i know, your heart bleeds for me)

Anyway fast forward through 6-8 or so hours of seshing into a headwind, and I win KQ vs AQaipf while 6/6 on the bubble of a £215 UKIPTsatelite, 2 hands later the aq guys busts and we win the package to the Scotland main-event plus 5nights in hotel etc etc, first ever serious live mtt, also first (and hopefully/likely last) time going to scotland so thats pretty exciting.

Shortly after that my luck started to turn around or I had volumed thru so many mtts that they ran out of badbeat/cooler/bust algorithms /shrug w/e after many, many hours, infinite mtts, a bunch of ft's, a few nice scores and a hem/laptop crash while 25 tabling (much stress, many tilt) my stars balance is about $6.6k larger than it was when we began, thats not counting the ukipt stuff. Also made a phuckton of vpp over the course of the sesh already at 5427 w/ $70 in stellar rewards cleared. Tho 1k of those vpp were from the boost promo, for those not aware they are giving out free vpp (not w/ fpp equivelant sadly) its based on ur vip level so as nova i got 1k, chrome gets 250 i think etc etc. Ends on 8th so if you havent grabbed yours yet get on it, literally takes 5 seconds. Should hit 100k fpp next sesh which is $1600 in whats essentially rakeback, don't mind if I do!

The UKIPT event starts ~ 15th iirc so even tho it might not be the most exciting poker adventure (its me, and its scotland, and its live poker), there will be a trip report in here disguised as a regular blog entry. The hotel room is +1 too so i will be auditioning whatever ladies in my phone are still talking to me/dont want me dead for the part, you're also free to apply, and in all honestlymore attractive than some of the girls i've been w/ ao who knows, you might even get the part Sry for rant its only cus it's the start of a new blog. Back tomorrow/next day for more seshes, gonna track tlb as we go in the blog even tho its pretty pointless until december just so you have some visual stimulation/guess we can track the monthly/weekly tlbs over the yearly one, as that'll be a more relevant sweat.

cliffs:

new blog for mtts/2014
trying to win/top 10 yearly tlb
having real problems sleeping (not taking any drugs and am now cutting energy drinks w/ no change , still cant sleep most of the time),

but using it to my advantage w/ tlb farming, hardcore 24+hour marathon seshes > seeking professional help, for now at least

won a seat to ukipt in scotland 15th-20th Jan

won some other mtts

made dat cash money son (about $6k profits plus the package)

i am still terrible at poker, all my recent success is thanks to my #1 flan (ha get it?!) helen who has been by my side through it all (well since stars approve her a few weeks ago)

Hope you guys are enjoing poker/having sucess <3 peace

Hi just got done with my session, was ~13-14hour reg period 18ish hours total playing time. Unreg'd a bit earlier than planned cus ive got this annoying cough and wasnt feeling great, feeling a bit better now but still have dat cough, if i die im gonna be sftilted.

Decent sesh, much less swingy than recent ones, won a couple of mtts near the start ($11 for $890 and $33 1r 1a for $1800) and then had a couple of moderate ft appearances through out the sesh, made a run in the big $109 at the end, finished 11th for $1.2k. Not sure if i played bad/ ran bad, feels like i should have done better but also had a lot of stuff was working against me.

Meh not worth thinking about now. Will go over the hh with a clear head tomorrow and see what I can deduce. Sadly not tired rly (yes im still going through that pretending to have insomnia to look cool phase) but going to make some soup and lay in bed for a bit. Didn't quite make the 100kfpps toda ydue to stopping early so we'll grab that next time.

Only +$2600ish today, hope thats the downswing over and we are going back to running at expectation next sesh (+$6k a day). Not sure how many more lame 2.6k days i can take.

PS: TCOOP coming up, not that excited rly, the faster the structure the less i enjoy it, still gonna play most of them but meh bring on SCOOP etc etc. Fck this entry is rly long too cba w/ cliffs just take it a paragraph per day.

PPS: holy crap only hit preview post and then did a bunch of other shit, had to backspace like fiddy times but it was saved, whew. Peace

Alright, bout to be on one DJ Khaled style, last chance to try and spike the weekly tlb, Not going to be easy (close to impossible actually), im like 860points behind so thats multiple large field wins needed but never say never. Played a bit yesterday, around 14 hours total, wasn't great just ran bad, finished down about $1500 or so. Still have a bit of a cough, gets worse at nights but its not enough to stop me playing. So thats it for now, idk if im gonna end up marathon'ing from now until Sunday night or not but either way i'll cya on the other side.

Did end up playing through Sunday as well, got a ton of volume in, played well through out the sesh and enjoyed it so in that respect it was a successful day(s) work.

However results wise it was about as bad as mathmatically possible. I knew I was in for a rough session when i began by accidently buying a direct seat to the UKIPT event im already in. Was trying to use the Day A, day B token they gave me but registered in the wrong one and tableninja auto confirms through all the popups/ok boxes lol. There is no way to unreg from that event in the client so i had to email bac n forth w/ them, whilst 12-26 tabling and being on both poker and life tilt. Did get my £1100 back after a couple of hours tho, but thats where my goodfortune ended.

You have all experienced runbad so I wont elaborate but yeh, didn't make any real ft's, didnt even come close/no stacks etc etc (which also meant no increase to my weekly tlb score). Ended up roughly $4-5k down I think. Did hit 100k fpp so cashed that in for a $1600 bonus which helps stem the bleeding a bit. My own fault for bringing the cashout curse upon myself Heading to Scotland on Wednesday so idk if there will be any more seshing before that, might get one in later today or tomorrow idk. Either way at the latest i'll be back here on wed w/ the start of the trip report

Small update cus im pretty tired. First off, new sickest score/poker accomplishment ever, redeemed myself from my heartbreaking 2nd place last turbo night.Will be offering hyper turbo mtt coaching @ $500per hour





On to business, just finished the first sesh since coming back from Scotland, have slipped down the leaderboards due to my time off so put in a massive grind. It went... meh, started off ok shipped $33r 6max for $1600, shipped $55 4max for $900, 2nd in $88 turbo 4max for $1.3k (makin perez proud w/ all this 4max) couple of other semi decent scores through out kept me afloat/~breakeven but over all a pretty underwhelming(by my own high standards) sesh filled with near misses and hitheadagainstthewall moments.

Turbo night atm so im stopping, cus infinite shitty hyper turbos arent my idea of a good time, gonna nap a bit and prolly sesh again this evening. Been having a lot of random regs/people on stars talking to me and tho i miss a lot of chat due to volume and table stacking the convo's i had were nice, people were telling me they often railed me/followed my seshes/wishing me luck for the day/gratzing me on yesterdays scores etc. A little extra motivation foshure. Fame level increasing, moving closer to my life goal of appearing 1st on a google search for "kevin thorn" ahead of the (notvery)famous wrestler


Went a bit overboard playing sats to live events today, definately wanna keep at it but need to show some restraint as they are often the most expensive tourneys in my sched. Didnt win any, bubbled a couple tho, bear in mind my satty play is far from perfect so its all a work in progress. Notgoing to track daily profit/loss anymore cus w/ mtts thats a sure fire way to go crazy. Think im up a few hundo on the sesh. 450vpp away from clering next $50 stella. So much for quick entry, peace yo

Pre TCOOP entry, just got done with a smallish sesh (by my standards anyway) gonna lay down for a few hours and then hop into the 1st event, been sleeping a little more than before still not normal but a dramatic improvement from before so thats good news. Still need to get around to seeing doctor tho as the cough i mentioned ages ago is still present also there is a slightly more embarassing medical problem to get looked at (pics/trip report incoming obv)

Sesh was pretty medicore, built tons of promising stacks but ran bad deep and watched them all evaporate into 45-19th's. Only score above $300 was winning the $22 big panties for about $620. One benefit of playing all the tournaments is even on bad days you make ft's and win stuff with a much higher frequency. Also got a few £hundo refund from a live sat due to collusion, so ship that i guess.

Hi guys, Got a TCOOP day 1 sesh in yesterday. Was ~ 9 hours, cut it short cus i was feeling a lil sick/tired. Didn't money any TCOOP's but got 7th in $33 cubed for $700 and 3rd in $33r for 2.3k to day save. 33r FT was pretty insane, 4 good agg regs, 3 decent regs, a tag nit and myself lol. But that tourneys never been a fish tank.

Not playing today as i have a ton of rl stuff to do (well 1 tabling $82 big panties TCOOP atm) but should be able to get a nice lil sesh in tomorrow. Here's the year so far according to fishscope, definitely a nice start, 1.7k mtts played already, without any 1gayties isn't bad but lets aim for moar MOAR

To sum up the Saturday sesh, ran bad and lost some money. Welcome to mtts, also been stuck 1 tabling the $2.75 4k for the last 2-3 hours, only $850 up top aaand some guy disconnected 4 handed @ ft so every hand took 20seconds longer. Could not be more tilted lol, tho i managed to workout at 4am, whilst 1 tabling it so time well spent. First exercise ive done in a few months, coughs also pretty much cleared up so thats good news, felt good to workout again and now my sleeps better i am on my way to a healthier lifestyle, feels goodman.

Bluerain rant over, gonna get a nice juicy Sunday in tomorrow, might not start til late tho as its 6am atm and im still 3 handed in this silly mtt. Hope you all have a good weekend on or off the tables and cya back here early monday morning for a Sunday summary.

At least i ended up winning that $2.75 from yesterday, as for today, totally massacred lol. Got 14th in the small $109 early for like $400 and then literally had no other top 27 finishes all day despite playing everything including wu/milly/320tcoop/162s etc. Just one of those runbad days where whatever you do its wrong, might have to look into cutting $215's/live sats/less juicy $162's from sched if d/s continues this way. If i had to guess id say we're down 3.6k today but /shrug thats Sunday boyz. Not playing tomorrow got rl commitments but should be back on the horse Tuesday. Going to be hard to make an impact on the monthly TLB in feb, not just because I cant top 27 an mtt but cus TCOOP bloats scores, hoping for top 25 but top 50 is a more realistic goal (71st atm)

VPP/FPP growing nicely, should unlock another $50 stellar next sesh, @ 19.2kvpp for the month, tho 1k was from jumpstart promo. Thinking about learning a 2nd game just as a distraction, maybe plo as that actually has mtts that run but idk how realistic that is considering how i play but i might give it a look. Had to change stars ava today due to runbad, but its still #1 flan anything else? nop dont think so cya

Meh pretty crappy today, had a few decentish results through out the day to keep me just under break even but i had a ton of good stacks/runs and they all turned into nothing, just me getting coolered in the big equity hands over and over, managed 2nd in $75 for 1.4k, 2nd in 22 deepstack for $600, 14th in nightly $162 for $800 etc etc. Literally finished today -$3 lol, guess i'll take it.

Musta been smashed after sunday's entry where i was rambling on about the tlb thinking it was mid feb lol. As it stands there's 3 days left in jan and i plan to sesh them all! As i said before tlb scores are bloated from tcoop but i'd still like to push a top 50 finish if possible(down to 76th atm :[). Cleared the $50 stella today and according to the 2+2 post i'm running at just under 300k vpp pace for the year (which equates to roughly $23k so going to be aiming for that as well tho it will be tough) have made 20kvpp from mtts alone this month which is insane as previously i dont think id ever made more than 40k in a year, and just barely made nova last year playing a higher vpp/hour game.

Part of it is definately my new/professional approach to poker. No longer am i content to grind micros and use nittiest brm in history, im aggresively shot taking and have serious goals in mind, want all the monnies, all the vpps, all the tlbs, all the bitches etc etc. Might take a closer look at my sched over the next few days, right now i fire up pretty much everything except the 2-3x turbo rebuys/turbos over $40/50rebuys+ but i might need to tweak the sched to maximise tlb potential/minimize variance/maintain high vpp count. Was 34tabling @ peak today which was somewhat hectic

Using wired internet in bed w/ my laptop now as i started to get paranoid about wifi killing all my sperm so thats a hassle.

Half sesh today, woke up tired, did some weights and had a bath felt even more tired after but still fired up a sesh. Shouldn't of played at all but i had already decided yesterday i was going to play today and I am too pig headed in those spots but need to be more discipline and professional. When tired or feeling shitty don't play.

Was on my B game all sesh and obv lost a bit ~1.3k i could add that i ran bad or whatever but thats just excuses, the fact is i played when i shoudnt and paid the price.

Live and learn, still aiming to sesh tomorrow refreshed! Might even get some chinese in as a treat. As my sesh came to an early end i was bored and briefly considered spreading my action out over several sites on Sundays. I wouldnt mind doing it but after browsing through some sites most have a couple of ok sunday mtts but im not sure its worth the hassle ie: if i deposit and only play like 1-2mtts a weekand then bink how many hoops am i going to have to jump through to get my $$$, not keen on sending front/back scans of my credit card to people and thats part of the process on a lot of these sites (carbon/888)

I might try and add some stars.fr mtts as i have an account there already, possibly ipoker, tilt (if i can find my rsa lol) and party tho from what i can tell those rooms are going down the shitter fast, also im pretty sure i made accounts at most of these rooms 20 years ago and have since lost all access to the email acounts/memory of them tho they still are in my name/address so yeh a lot of hassle to access an inferior product idk if i cba but definately something im interested in trying (maybe on 14th as i have a pooperbowl party on 2nd).

Thats all for now, i'll leave you with a ss of willtakem playing $3 cam sngs on 888, seemingly from his garage. Does not look happy (so confirmed its him)
edit bein creepy and railin thesecam sngs lol, theres some gilf whos clearly on meth dancing and wearing an evening gown not sure if im turned on or sickened (turned on) ss of gilf game below

Hi! So last couple of sessions have continued down the theme of being bad, and so we round out January on a slightly less positive note than we started it but such is the life of the mtt fish.

This month has been an adventure, according to sharkscope I played 2435 mtts this month (Its slightly over that as I just finished a session and those mtts are not tracked yet). Ended the month ~ +$1.5k tho again after todays session its probably a bit less. Also earnt about $1500 in rakeback, so add that to the total to make me look a little less bad than I am.

I'm still very much enjoying myself at the tables so thats a positive sign, i'm not sure what, if anything needs to be changed. I've been trying lots of little changes like playing withot music, changing table themes and hated them all. I dont want to make adjustments to my game based on running bad as that can cause a snowball effect but I also don't want to be oblivious to my own flaws.
Some study sessions are likely the answer so i will try to do that over the weekend as I wont be playing. Have thought about editing my schedule but i'm finding it really hard to cut anything, tlb mtts all stay obv but what variance reducers do i cut, low stake/high edge things like $5 6max/$4r 4max (which end up w/ ~ $400-800 up top) or stuff like the $22 6max, $22 big antes (more reg filled/fun but again less than $1k uptop, smaller fields than the micro versions). If you have any advice feel free to hit me w/ it, because I just cant resist reg'ing it all atm and its prolly hurting my bottom line.

TCOOP was pretty uneventful for me, didnt play many of the events and didnt cash any of those I did play. Not a huge surprise really, as most of the events are akin to playing the lottery. Probably going to cut live sats for now, they're expensive and whilst they appeal to me a lot and appear to be fairly soft i've been having a pretty bad run in them (to the point where the buyins lost could of covered buyin/hotel/flight costs to every live mtt in the world for a year lol) again I suspect a decent amount of that is just variance but its another layer of variance on my downswing sandwich and im not up for it atm, sad but we'll get back into them soon im sure.

Lifewise im working out on a regular basis for the first time in months, im eating ehhh relatively ok, haven't been partying too hard and hopefully that continues throughout the year. Next goal is to cut the energy drinks by moving to coffee, then cut coffee for green-tea but that may take a while as i dont do shit in moderation. Wouldnt say i have a solid gf (looking to the longterm) atm but i have a couple of people willing to be that if i wish (I dont because they arent for me, not that ive told them that cus the option/benefits are nice). Not looking for anything more right now but if it finds me im open to it.

Been talking about travelling for flipflipflipfliping ever and furthest ive gone is Scotland so that needs to stop, I guess all the live sats were a way of getting my ass into gear but as thats not currently going very well im just gonna book somewhere and go soon. Not sure what february has in store for me but i'm very excited to find out. Hope the year has started well for you and i'll leave you with some screenshots of the obvious stuff. DEUCES

Had my first session of February yesterday, after taking Saturday off to study and relax and Sunday off to Superbowl paaaaartay! Actual game was pretty boring, esp for someone like me with money on Denver lol. But the night itself was great fun and after id slept off the hangover I got seshing.

Was my first attempt at trying to cut the crappier mtts from my sched, was difficult at first not regging into them but even though I was playing @ off peak time i didn't really miss them. VPPS didnt take as much of a hit as i had expected either (1347 on the sesh) and we did finally make money, despite no real notable scores, a few $3-600's and a 2nd in $11 cubed for 1.3k being the only 4fig. Only +$300 or so on the day but its a step in the right direction. Really want to be playing peak hours tho and ended up dragging the sesh out too long, fell asleep whilst itm in the $8 cubed and $2r at the end lol.

Helping some girl move tomorrow and crashing at hers for a couple of days so no seshing there either. Gonna return with a super grind after that tho cus Feb's been a slow starter DAMN YOU RL!

Hi, got back home Sunday afternoon and decided I needed to get a marathon grind in, and that we did. Went Sunday afternoon through to just now which is 1am Tuesday Morning. Holy crap was that the worst session ever, ran superbad and got crushed. It was like some twisted poker groundhog day, the same thing happened in like 12mtts in a row, there'd be ~60 or so left w/ me having a top 3 stack and then come 29th-14th there'd be some combo of cooler/badbeats and id be gone. It's likely my play didnt help at times, was definately on my B game for the most-part (down to C for while at the end of mnday night) but thats ok, still had a very fun session despte all the frustrations and heartbreak.



In other news, was my first time playing Pokerstars.fr mtts today first ten minutes where i tried to 12 table while getting all my settings symmetrical was...intense, after that I found the selection of mtts they had Sunday and Monday complimented my new schedule fairly well so it looks like that might be a regular things at this point. The tourneys are tough over there tho, the combination of hassle to verify account plus crazy rake/taxes/influx of goo dregs 2 years ago mean that most fish are long gone. Tho they are still there, just have to know where to look

Cut the WU and some of the more expensive low/no edge mtts from the sched but still lost more today than before lol (~$3.4k) Oh well, for a weej or so im to going tu be cutting non juicy 162's/55's from the sched plus no more majors/live sats etc. Does slow down my overall progress down with it but i'm fine with that, not broke yet but i've never been the type of guy who can have say a 1444.444,100BI roll for a tournament and keep plaing that same tournament until every last buyin is gone. the sesh is over so no need to dwell on it, time to look forward, to the poistive stuff ahead!! I am about 69% to 100kfpp which will in turn become $1600 rakeback baitout, got a 500euro first depost bonus to clear over in at le rakestars.fr, lets get grinding and hopefully things will turn around soon

Hi guys, so basically been away from my home and the tables for the last 5 weeks. Had some pretty deep rl stuff dumped on me without any warning and barely had a day to myself, the few days i did get i was far too drained to put in even my C game.

Hopefully got most of it sorted now which means back on the grind (nothings changed there) missed my supernova vpp min req in feb and played my first session of march yesterday (lost ) so the plan now is marathon sat/sun sesh to get to the 6500vpp min. Will have to nap at the end of sunday and try to get some zoom cash in on Monday I reckon. Started the day w/ like 1k from yesterday so should be a fun one. Will give a better update when i finish this sesh sometime Sun/Mon.

Sure has been a rollercoaster, maybe i will tell you about it sometime for now tho hope youre all ok and cya at the tables <3

also takin my mom to holland @ end of april, she is single so if any of you guys wanna reccomend places or hit on her lmk

Have been playing a decent amount since last update just not in the habit of blogging yet, gimme a few days. Most of the week was pretty bad, but a couple of days ago i tidied up my room, started sitting @ desk and using my pc rather than playing in bed w/ laptop. Improved my diet and actually spent a decent amount of time studying my game. Which seems to have helped.

The last couple of seshes have been much better, still losing the big equity hands deep, but actually making deep runs and feel like im actually playing well which is a refreshing change belive you, me. Didn't make min vpp for nova last month, didn't even try, decided i need to focus on making money playing poker and have rakeback/bonusses as an after thought rather than play a bunch of -ev poker to maintain status. In keeping with this i've dropped some of the filler mtts from my stars sched and begun adding in some of the nicer ones on ftp and stars.fr (still all owned by stars lol, might try other sites too). Came close to busting my stars.fr roll today (not a shock, only depo'd like 1k and have been playing 50's and the odd 100) was down to 8euros in acct but shipped the hot £5 turbo for £770ish to save me (no euro symbol on my keyboard).

Still nova atm but gotta maintain erry month from here on which isnt gonna be easy. Ranted on long enough for now, catch you again after Sundays sesh <3

Well i guess id call today a good day, we made money (~$2400) so it's hard to complain. Could have been much more but every big equity flip,60/40,70/30,80/20 still seems to go aginst me. Had tons of near misses, 6th in $27 ko AA<KK as CL vs 2nd w/ 8 left, 17th in bigger $27, 22nd in $22cubed etc etc.

The bulk of todays sucess came from the late night $109 30k, got 4th for $3.3k. Lost a flip for CL on ft bubble and went in w/ ~ 20bb. FT was depressing, no cards and 2 nits on 5-8bb's who refused to ever bust created an icm nightmare that left me blinding into oblivion. Got 6handed w/ me on 3bb them on 1-2 each lol. Even had to fold bb w/ 2bb's cus other guy was forced all-in first. Did outlast the 2 nits thankfully but it always feels like i shoulda done something different when I literally blind out of an mtt. Honestly dont think there was much i could have done tho. Happy enough with my new setup and schedule so far. Feel i'm playing a lot better than i have been recently and hope to continue moving in a positive direction even if I start losing again.

Obviously w/ a month off we've slipped out of yearly tlb contention, its still a goal of mine and a focus but it's taking a temporary backseat w/ supernova while i work out a solid sched and get my play to a level im satisfied with. Free tomorrow and just got a bunch of pussy energy drinks delivered so that should make for a nice sesh. For now tho im gonna eat some chicken burgers and nap. Deuces.

Pretty meh day just couldn't win any hands lol, ended the day running deep in a couple of small mtts but key hands went against me and ended 10th in $4 2r/1a and 4th in $44 4k on ftp for $500. Not enough to daysave, finished down maybe $800-$900.

Not the best debut for pussy energy drink but im willing to give it a 2nd chance tomorrow, also got rid of helen flanagan avatar on stars, think she's run her course. Got a decent replacement atm but idk if its gonna be permanent! Still noty sure about the ftp avatar, i wanna win all the gimmick mtts so i can use unicorn and dinosaur ava's but in the meantime i think im going to try devil lady as she got me to a ft todayl. Will keep you guys posted on that, more seshing tomorrow

zzzzzzzzzz was in the middle of a big Sunday last week when my net started dropping on and off, it happens occasionally but this was certainly more intense. I unreg'd from everything but was still in ~ 11 mtts inc 109 ftops 256ftops 109 stars etc. Ended up with not only internet router dying but my cpu overheating and getting flipflipflipfliped. Didnt bother even filing for a refund cus i was too tilted. Got a new comp now, but internet is still shaky so have been playing 50nl the last few days until i get the internet 100% sorted because i actually want to play poker. Still having odd drops too but its improving /tilt

Cash is going ok, i mean its 50nl so its a rake sink but im enjoying it and i always seem to study harder when playing cash idk why. Off to holland w/ my mum next week, cost me infinite more than expected so on more tilt than ever. Also 1st world busto now sigh oh well.

Sup yo, still alive. Internets still sucking so having to just play cash atm. Annoying but im over it, Holland trip was nice enough, kings day celebrations were pretty sick and there was much Bier en tieten, dutch girls are insaney fit wtf. Sadly my mom isnt a great wingman but w/e.

Otherwise not a ton to report, derpes is flaring up due to internet tilt so cant have sex (with anyone non skanky anyway), girlfriend got a call from a phone of mine that was stolen several months ago and I literally just stubbed my toe two seconds ago. So basically no one has it worse than me atm and you should all send me 1c on stars out of sympathy.

Did manage to make my 6.5kvpp in april so still non-pleb nova for now, also cashed in a $1600 fpp cash bonus after hitting 100k the other day so br slowly moving in the right direction. Hope you're all ok

Eh didnt want to do a cash update as its supposed to be an mtt blog but as the saying goes osme news is better than no news. So internets still in 3rd world mode, should be sorted within a week or two tho so thats good. Dont trust it enough to start mtt seshing despite how tempted i've been around scoop so just been grinding 50nl zoom (pretty much as hellish as you'd imagine).

Been going ok, despite being a rake sink ($1.5k rake paid on 39k hands ). Played 50k hands since April with 30k of them being this month up $612 pre rb/$1291 post rb. Already maintained nova for the month which is convenient because i'm playing a week away with a certain lady friend just have to kidna.... errr ask her first. Other than that not a ton going on, weathers picking up though so i might grab an internet dongle and start grinding in the park. Hope you're all still alive etc <3

Whew, just finished the Sunday sesh, was quite a marathon, ended up at just under 10hours of @ the table play with a couple of breaks in between,(which might not sound like much compared to my 48 hour mtt seshes but 4 tabling 6m zoom for 10 hours, is quite draining lol given that there's no downtime and you actually have to think contantly)

Was a pretty good sesh, ran fairly well and as it was SCOOP finals + Sunday the fish were out in force. Finished the sesh +$587 (+$706 w/ rb) which is pretty nice obv. Making ~ $11 an hour on rb alone reppin that min wage grind, but then making 11.5 buyins ontop of that helps me not wanna switch to mcdonalds for the free burgers.


Also cleared the last $50 stellar, onto $100's now.... Played the SCOOP $109 m.e and $27 8max, both busted nowhere for nothing in fairly uneventful circumstances. Internet was terrible while i was in the mtts but after i busted it was fine all night, if i didnt know better id swear i was getting DDos trolled. Already 1/4 of the way to 100kfpps again too so overall just moving in a more positive direction w/ the br. Brains close to shutting down atm so sorry for any rambling itt, not like anyone reads it anyway. Graph of my cash gaming since April, almost all zoom.

Sup yo, just finished an 11.5hour cash session, was much less of a delight than the last one somewhat predictably. Switching to regular speed as the milestone promo is on and im in no rush to aquire vpps or w/e. Ran about as bad as possible, willing to believe i played poorly too but it didnt feel like it @ the time.

Should be an insightful session review later. As for results finished down $590ish ($480 w/ rb), hit 0 milestones too so basically the unluckiest person in the world. Got a couple of nights out planned over the next few days so might be mia until saturday. Not much else to report. <3

Hi, been a pretty fun weekend, not much going on just been grindin since fri as my mate blew me off. Been all 16tables of regular speed 6m because milestone was running but now thats done i'll likely be moving back to zoom as my primary.

Started off pretty badly, having just had a big losing day the previous session i begun down $700 or so after only a few hours. Although I was definately running bad those kinds of drop indicate bigger problems so i satout, went over some stuff and found some definite leaks, tightened up the play and ended that day in the green. The rest of the weekend went much more smoothly and I definately felt I was playing a lot better.

Ended up hitting a milestone yesterday, lost like $80 in the hand (tilt) but got credited ~ $310 or so which is fine. Also ran really well yesterday, like unreal hot. Because my grinding/sleeping sched is shitty hem merges my session days so i'll give you the stats of all my play since Fri

20,561 hands played
+$536 ($840 with rb, without milestone)

Not the worst ever, might take some shots at 100nl over the next few days just because playing 50nl makes me feel like a nit and with the rake difference I can justify it. Passed 50kvpp for the year, cashed in my first $100 stella and halfway to another 100k fpp $1600 nova bonus. Internet was tiltingly bad yesterday got engi coming on wed. About to start up a sesh so i'll reave you with some pics and check in later

I should note that although i don't like the EV line I am running above it by quite a lot #fishonheater wanna get a ton more hands in so i can get a better idea of my true (can't)winrate

Sup yo, had zillion irl things going on, i mean not rly just been enjoying the world cup and partying but anyway. Have been grinding the $100nl zoom/normal tables tho. Changed isp and got some wiring fixed but still my internet drops like it's hot so mtts are still not rly possible. I guess its ok tho, been enjoying cash and the time flexibility it offers and given my long time away from mtts the tlb stuff isnt that realistic anymore.

Feel kinda stupid making a blog every year and failing @ it, ooh im a cash player now, oooh back to mtts, ohhh nvm cash, oooh sngs, cash that is etc but story of my life rly. Getting close to nova, hit the $100 80kvpp milestone which is cool, tho who knows what nova will even be worth next year. Results have been eh, average, went through a bad run and feel like i picked up some leaks, but been talking stuff over with a couple of guys i met (not as gay as it sounds... eh kinda is tbh) and think i've plugged some holes (sounds even gayer) and feel more confident.

Might try a few micro millions events as the risk/reward isnt that high as far as internet crashes go. Been a while, hope those of you still lurking here are doing well. Hit me up if you want some noods or w/e and cya on the felt.

Took a week or so off to hang out w/ gf, was pretty boring really but the weathers been great so just tipped a bottle of vodka into a 2l coke bottle, grabbed 16 fresca's (best beer ever) and chilled in the park getting flipflipflipfliped up then embaress ourselves at a nice resteraunt for dinner, off to a bar, sleep repeat.

Been a little distracted from poker but as you know by now thats just me, i neglect things and just drift through life. Which was fine when i was 17 but now im 23 it's getting a little old, also lost plenty of good friends with behaviour like that. I don't mean it, idk why im writing it here just been on my mind today. But tomorrow i'll forget about it and carry on drifting. /shrug will be printed on my gravestone im sure.

Plan on starting off August getting a bunch of hands in, gonna play the $109 wcoop event despite having internet as flakey as myself. Should be fun.

Also friend of my gf is visiting from abroad and from what i can tell (looking at her fb page with my gf for liek 2 minutes) she's is a major skank might try and hook that shit up. Got overloaded on noodz requests so i ran out of stock, please be patient more on the way shortly
