      Hey new blog :D

      I already did a blog that started with cash games but I then decided to switch to MTSNGs because I actually make some $$$! I'm saying this because I already kind of told my life story about poker in the other one. Other blog

      So basically my BR was down to $50 last monday (9 days ago)... I just cracked the $1K mark tonight :s_biggrin:

      How I got to $1K
      -Started with $0.50 45 man turbos on stars
      -Went up to $1.50 45 mans when I hit $100
      -Up again to $3.50 when I hit $300
      -And tonight was when I went back to the games that kicked my !@# in the past, the $2.50 180 mans. Which was successful with a nice 44% ROI and $30.70/hour and for my first time in a while playing 30 tables at a time (which is tough by the way).

      Here's the graph of the past week and a bit. (I'm not really sure where the $0.50 started cause it's so tiny so I'm just going to skip to $1.50)



      I am now silver star... I don't like the taste of silver so I am not going to stop playing until I reach gold this month! :D and probably platinum next month because I want to be a supernova boy.

      whats your id? I was mass tabling these last few days. Rake is worthless for 180's dont even make that a goal. For a 10$ average buyin tourney you rake like 33 cents?

      My ID is !P0K3RM3T4L!
      And I see plenty of people getting supernova through the 180 mans lol. I think it would be pretty easy when I eventually mix all of the games ($3.50R up to $35).

      and well in general supernova isn't worth much


      I know but it looks good :) and I can buy someone a nice swarovski card holder ;) and that big game poker chip set... etc.

      Hi suitedaces1701 and welcome to our blogs section (again)!

      The past few days sucked :P I tried playing 180 mans but that was a total disaster so I went back to 45 mans. But I can't seem to beat the $7 games gah! Oh well I'm going back to the $3.50 games so that I can make a descent revenue :)

      It feels good to not be alone :P I hope we all start winning real soon!

      Today was not that day though... I'm under another $100 with 2 games still running geez. ($3.50 games)

      I just looked at my graph, I'm $70 under EV so far :) and the EV line really doesn't move away from the winnings line that much with 45 mans... SO, there's an upswing coming soon!

      My aces were cracked by any hand imaginable today :P Now my BR sits at a still kind of comfy $489 :) Still more than what my friends make in a couple week lol

      OK so I haven't seen one single screamo song on pokerstrategy! :baby: so I decided that I'm going to post one. You might figure out why I chose this one hehe, but I'm just letting you know that it's about sex (not just plain swearing).

      WARNING: This is moshpit material, not techno club music.

      OK turning a new page today

      My goal is still to reach $2000 by the end of the month

      -Only 20 tables at a time (add 1 when I make profits, minus 1 when I lose money) --> minimum 18
      -Move up in limits when I reach 100 buy-ins

      This should also let me reach gold status so I will be able to ship the 100K monthly :D

      Hi man! Nice start...and nice goal, you'll get there with proper volume I think. I'm playing the 90 man .50/$1 on stars but I used to play cash so I'm basically a noob at this. Can we discuss some strat. or something on skype, I'm really curios how you maintain that volume? (30 tables) - ... I'm trying to get there also :D C'ya and GL!

      Another bad day. At least I know that it's not my play :) I'm getting sucked out like crazy! Down to 19 tables.

      Sorry I really don't have a lot of spare time on my hands. Full time school, poker and music is pretty much all I can do :P But check out some of lambert's stuff. I think one of his 180 man videos are basic or bronze status. And download the 30 day trial for SNG wizard!!! And practise your heart out with the quizzes (set it to chip value by the way, not ICM... ICM only is necessary when you're at the final table. Chip value is to make it to the final table).

      I don't know if you're familiar with table ninja, but I couldn't 30 table without it. And you only get to 30 tables by practising, adding one table at a time until you can make split second decisions. You'll reach it eventually, if you are serious about the game.
