      Hey,
      I'll post detailed, daily updates of my progress during this month's promo on partypoker (see blog entry). To sum it up, I need 20k PP which is 136k hands at NL100. I plan on playing at least 6k hands/day starting tomorrow.
      Today, I played about 3714 hands for 883$ profit, or approx 12bb/100, playing 8-12 tables (mostly 12). Anyhoo, I'll post daily updates + graph (always from June 27th - current day).
      So far I've played max 12 tables spread out on my two screens, 6 on each at normal size - so they overlap a little. I still have time to sing and do other things though, so I'll definitely add a few tables :D . I'll try 16 on one screen tomorrow, see if that works. Ideally I'd like to play 20+ tables; if I can pull it off, I'll get to 130k hands in no time, then ship the rakeback :)

      So anyhoo, here are the stats and graph so far (only including NL100, I won't count the 600 or so NL200 hands at -240$)

      //edit: I'll post my PLO100 stats as well; graph will follow when I have min. 1k hands.

      Current progress (estimate): 111% (to 20k points goal)

      Hold'em






      Omaha

      hmm, good question ^^ we'll see tomorrow :D If not, I'll ask support if it's possible to have more... if not, well shit.

      //edit: I just opened 18 tables, didn't try sitting down though, but it should be ok... anyway my processor will never cope with that many tables ^^ If I have enough moniez left after my live game on thursday (1/2$ blinds, dealer's choice NLH/PLO/PLO-8/pineapple) I'll get a decent setup

      I'm aiming for 6k hands/day minimum because I'm gonna take some days off :) Especially with the montreux jazz next week :P Same reason why I want to play >12 tables; gotta leave myself time to do some sport and chill on the terrace :D

      I can do it, I have this little schedule all worked out, it'll take less than 8hrs/day to reach 6k hands imo

      got off to a pretty bad start - rather than follow my schedule (bed at 2am :D ) I stayed up till 5:30 to watch tribun in the sunday million - then couldn't get to sleep -.- Ended up getting 3-4hrs of sleep, waking up too late, going for a swim (+biking there 10mins each way), feeling real bad afterwards cause I hadn't eaten anything, burning the baguette baguette i did for lunch, and only played 2.1k hands so far for +76$ (1.77ptbb/100).
      /rant

      need some redbull :D


      oh, and... finally diamond again! :)

      btw, I've noticed that my graph basically points downwards, except for big vertical lines ^^ I daren't open my pokerEV graph, I must be losing so much in non-SD pots o.o

      1h-1h30/day of sport should do the trick :) If it's even possible though, I'll try to play more than 6k/day, there's a good chance I'll spend more time outside later on in the month, gotta allow time for that :D

      btw thanks for the support everyone :)

      I can confirm you can play more than 12 tables on party. Just played 13 for a few mins, but 13 tables + lack of sleep + msn made it totally unmanageable ^^ btw I think i'm running very hot at all-ins - other than a couple of 2-outers that I lost to, i've won every single made hand vs monster draw flips and probably more.. i'll post the EV graph later

      Good luck, swiss!

      It's also v.good news you can play more than 12 tables at party now. I'll consider moving back from stars since oponents there seem to be better in a long run.

      Wait eagerly for another updates!

      thanks!

      I think I have to stop here today, only 3hrs of sleep this morning is killing me... I'm sure i didn't play well today, only +60$ after 3.8k hands. Anyhoo, I'll try to get some rest to play much more, and better, tomorrow.

      So far: 9641 hands (7% complete), +$1121

      Bankroll at €4,616.24 = $7,288.58
      Graph and stats are updated in the first post

      //edit: I'm considering playing as much as possible at NL200 (in the evenings, only 8 tables though) Since I have more than enough BR and I'll earn more points and money that way (well, that's the theory :P )

      Maybe try play NL200 for learning purposes too? Developing skills is also improtant, remember? ;) 1:3 learn:play ratio was said to be optimal or sth ;p
