      Subscribed!

      Welcome to the blogging section!

      Looking to get back into SNG mode myself within the next month so I'll definitely be following :)

      What level will you be playing at and are you 6 max/FR/HU?


      Good luck with the blog and your goals!

      Gary.

      I am playing at 3$ per table 6 max, now that I moved to stars my goal is to play 100 on 1$ to adjust, then straight to 3,5$ and a sample of 700 tournaments,
      so far, after 45 played my net winnings are - 10,51 and $EV is + 10,14
      I played some 6max tournaments and I am happy with the results aswell.

      thank you for subscribing :)

      Well FR might work aswell but I just love the 6max dynamics.
      Alright so here is the first test update on normal speed 6 max SNGs:



      I might test out some more turbos aswell as I was playing them on party. Still I dont quite get the red line...

      Still waaay to early to make any estimations.

      To be honest I wouldn't even look at a graph until I had 100-200 games played and even then a lot can change in the space of 50 games.

      That is true but on the other hand It raises a concern. The fist graf i posted, the party poker one, the red line there was going down same as here. I would really appreciate some professional opinion on it.

      But yes, I will try not to look any graphs for a longer period of time.

      Professional assistance?

      Best place for any help would be our Sit and Go Discussion board

      The guys are super helpful and proven winners so I would definitely not be afraid to put them to work with any questions that you may have :)

      Above that link is our Hand Evaluation centre for all buy-ins, also worth reading :)

      So far so good, played few 180 man turbos aswell managed to play silly on final table and came out on the 6th place. Was close to FT few times aswell but no luck for me to ship it yet.
      Anyway I had amazing few days. Lots of tourists already here due to nice and sunny weather.

      I did play 140 1,5$ SNGs, result was surprisingly good, however I can not stay on this limit as it would be a waste of time.



      My 3,5 start was a blast, played 23 cashed quite some :)

      Hey man! No I don't but I'm.. researching it, which basicly means I've cashed out my CG roll and waiting for it to move over onto pokerstars for SNG grinding, haha.

      Time for the new update!

      After 200 played tournys I would say I am pretty happy about my results altho the winnings could be a bit higher, but the fact I had like nearly 20 buyins downswing and I managed to climb up in the next 10 tounaments keeps my moral high.

      :f_cool:

      Silver status update: 39%

      Winnings graph: :f_biggrin:



      Chips won graph: :f_biggrin:



      Life:

      Yesterday was the day that my girlfriend returned, after 12 days of being apart that really made me happy. Weather is not that great, its raining a lot but that doesnt concern me a lot since happy and warm days are about to come.


      Regards,

      Urban
