      My name is giraffe and i have been a member of ps for 4 years now. Since 888poker is no longer part of pokerstrategy i am a bronze member wich realy sucks since i was diamond X( X( X(



      Started with 25 dollars a grinded out a descend bankroll while hit and running with SSS up to NL100

      Then grinded out FR and played each stake for 100K hands with a very descend winrate. At NL 400 things run pretty bad (sample was small) so i lost a big part of my roll and then i realized that i should give 6 max a try.

      My 6 max game turn out to be pretty horrible and over 130K hands i am loosing realy badly.

      This summer holiday i spend at least 100 hours in just learning about 6max. I also made some changes in my overall game plan wich now will be

      :diamond: play 4 tables max ( i even prefer 2 or 3 at the moment)
      :diamond: 2 hours playing 1 hour session review+learning
      :diamond: at least 50 buy ins for a stake but i prefer 70 (downswing make me spew more wich hearts your winrate an even more insane amout).
      :diamond: start a english blog to find more people to chat6max

      Giraffe is married with the love of his life, we got a beautifull daughter 9,5 years old and a crazy dog. I got a realy nice job wich i can not tell much about (no am not james bond) but if i say what i do it could be lot easier to trace down my real name and stuf.

      My spare goes into poker (at least 100 hours a month) and am totaly into loosing weight and getting fit. I lost 31 lbs in 4 months and my energy level is sky high. I did the insanity fitness program for 90 days and this week am starting my new 90 days fitness challenge p90x.


      I will post a few hands a week together with my in depth thoughts. I prefer to dive into one hand all the way instead of just chatting briefly about a few hands so i hope you guys will like what you see.

      Good luck with your goals!
      P90X is THE workout to do imo :) I was doing the doubles program (if you know what that is) just as extra workout for hockey lol. It's tough but best results you will ever get, that is if you follow the nutrition plan.

      I want to to p90x+insanity combination after p90x don't know the name by head but i read about it. Sounds pretty sick but after 90 days of insanity i know i can finish any program.

      I just do the program and eat healthy stuff all day long and it works for me since i lost a lot of lbs with insanity already.

      Hi, giraffe !

      My 6 max game turn out to be pretty horrible and over 130K hands i am loosing realy badly.


      This a little bit reminds my story :D I switched from FR to SH as well, then I understood what the variance is. First month like up 50bis, next down 75.

      GL in 6max.

      that's why playing my A game and looking back at all my sessions is priority nr 1. I have to figure out if it is variance or spewing etc.

      I made a deal with myself that i will not look at winrate before i make the next 130K hands. :D :D

      Once my pc is ready to go (after this weekend) i will start to put at least a few hands a day in here.
