      It's almost like how the people with no money say...

      "money doesn't buy you happiness..." ? haha...

      Yeah, I still sit down at the table thinking that I will crush. So that's great right? ;)

      I always look at EV to measure how I play. I'd rather run below EV like this month where my EV winrate is like 12-13bb and I'm only winning 1bb. I know I'm playing very well and can expect to be a winner @ those stakes than to have a winrate of 7bb and EV of only 1bb because you're not sure if you can actually win or not...

      Anyway, still crushing the EV line! ;)

      GL to me the 93% of the way left!

      I recently talked to a coach here on PS.com...

      I told him that this year alone I'm almost 40bi below EV... And he laughed at me...

      He told me he was 120BI below EV... He thought I was joking but I told him that this wasn't even close to my run last year... So all together I'm almost 240BI below EV in 1 2/3 years... :) And I'm playing better than ever before, so it can only go up from here!!! ;)

      Your mindset is very impressive. If I was 240BI below EV I would be shouting "omgrigged!!!!!" from the rooftops long ago. :f_biggrin:

      I'm in the process of moving and if anything is more annoying is that they said the Internet won't be setup until a few weeks...

      *blows up*

      In the meantime I will be coaching at the local McDonalds and throwing in some small sessions there as well...

      I'll try to get back on track after when the internet comes and everything is setup properly...

      Until then,
      Grind Hard!

      I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this bsb... But:

      McDonald's to stop serving Heinz ketchup

      Maybe its time to look for a new place to coach/grind.

      Gl with the stake!

      Don't worry. I can update you everyday but I'd prefer not grinding in public locations. There's no point in updating everyday I'll update at every 10k hands as promised but I've been very busy with packing and moving.

      Things don't seem to be getting better but the don't seem to be getting worst. :) Yeah, I'm back at 500NL! Boy people are so bad. I'll update here once every 10k hands or so. It's pointless uploading this graph every few K hands...

      If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on Skype or through Pokerstrategy.com...

      Have a great grind!

      Im following you're progres, very nice thread and your explanations. Its realy realy nice to hear that ppl on nl500 zoom are so bad :) Well not a nice graph, but still nice to see how can "reality" kick in even if youre good/play correct. Im always belov EV on avrage but i got used to it somehow :D Most ppl post only "run good" graphs :) You must have a very good mindset :) And i love your red line tho :D

      Do you run bad just after u get it in (ev diff). Or are all the boards/runouts somehow bad for your hand at that moment. Worst turn in deck and then even worst river :D this usualy happes to me, sick setups, i play nl10, but when i try nl25 graph is like yours everytime i try :P then i move down again :P
