      Hi guys,

      I've just started my first ever 12 hour grind on 2NL 10 tabling mostly but might keep trying 12 every now and again as I play.

      I'm doing this because I have beaten 2NL before but had to move down after a one outer tilted me terribly. Also to gain rake race points and just to see if I can, tilt wise.

      So if you want to watch me spank my whole bank roll after a sick beat half an hour in, join me!

      I have energy drinks stocked up and spotify ready...

      I'll try and post updates as much as possible. Any encouragement is very much appreciated :)

      Everything really from metal to hip hop to blues to dance etc

      Deftones, Scroobius Pip, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Martin Harley, Nero - all recently been grinding to!

      --------

      Just got it all in with KK against a set. Should have folded to the 3 bet probably. Got most of it back one hand later with a straight tough against... a pair of 9's! :s_confused:

      Try to use our hand converter so we can see what you up to in these hands! :)

      Yeah thought I should probably do that :tongue:

      I do have some troubles when using that converter though, in HEM do you copy hands w/ stats to paste into the converter?

      You don't even need to do that. When you open up a Hand History on HEM you can just click the "2+2" button at the top and then when you paste it into this forum it's all nicely converted :)

      We had a guy on the swedish forum that made a bet with someone that he would grind for 24 hours, he gave up and fell asleep after 4 or something.

      Awesome! Well if I mess up my BR doing 12 hours straight, at least I have learnt something to massively aid my hand evaluations :D
