      This me writing about poker :s_ugly:

      I started playing SNG's with my $50 bankroll in Titan Poker.
      Decided to play at least 12 SNG's every day for the first month.

      Today, the first day i played 16 x 10man SNG's.
      • 11 regulars >>> 5, 6, 3, 2, 9, 4, 3, 7, 5, 7 .... place
      • 4 turbos >>> 1, 1, 3, 2 place
      • 1 turbo double up >>> 1 win

      Made some mistakes in the early stages of regular SNG's in the beggining of the day, but nothing too critical or anything that wouldve made me tilt.

      Looks like im doing way better in Turbos, people there are much more nervous and dont know how to play when the blinds get bigger. They make many mistakes.
      There are less regular turbos than regular SNG's, but i think i should play more turbos.

      At the end of 16 SNG's i made a healthy profit of $4.40.

      This is the end, next entry next week with more statistics, graphs and hands.

      ..So I played 4 more SNG's today, just to prove to myself that this Winning streak in Turbos isnt random.
      I did one Turbo SNG - got the 1st place
      And I did 3 Turbo Double-up - won 2 (made no mistakes).

      Tomorrow then (and the whole next week) ill be playin only turbos.

      Things are not going very well ... thinking too much about "making money" .. it inevitably causes me to tilt (just lost $10 playing cashgame on PokerStars [so stupid]).

      What should i do?
      Set a goal of playing X amount of tourneys per day?
      I'll try that tomorrow.

      • Ill play 3x 3 SNG's, 9 total every day.

        And every SNG i try to play as good as possible, because if I want to play bigger SNG's in the future and really make some real money, then thats the only way to play 'em.

      • Must remember to breathe properly during the games.!important

      • After playing 3x 3 SNG's i will read & watch videos about poker for 3h.

      If I play just 9 SNG's every day, and make at least ~$2/day (that should be easy) -
      i will be able to comfortably move up the limits in just
      30 days.

      I will now dedicate myself completely to this thing, or else spend the rest of my life wondering What if..
      Ive had failures too many times, I couldnt stand another one.
      So .. I will get myself together and do it. Remember - doing boring stuff is what gets you forward in life.
