      Thought of participating for this for bit of SNE grinding booster and fun. Playing 6max, 9max, Fifty50 and 18max from 30$ to 200$ bins. Mostly with turbos and few normal speed.

      Decent target would be around 6k games in total. Have not broke that number yet during one month :)

      Though I have no idea how these different format games are counted together? I assume players from hypers and turbo games are not competing in same category.

      PS: Playing with JarppeK nick in Pokerstars only.

      Even 6K games are a lot for most of us :f_eek: , even hyper grinders.

      GL, you've saved me from posting another facepalm thread about playing 700 games in the month instead of 2500 :f_biggrin:

      But we won't be way apart in terms of rake - it's 14.5-15% in JPSnGs, remember :f_biggrin: That makes $10 of rake per table-hour, so I think I should be raking 3 figures an hour at peak, that's SNE pace, but on iPoker where it's not needed - I'll even have a luxury of splitting the volume across three sites on the network :f_eek: depending on their promotion timing :f_grin:

      Unfortunatelly, there are no different cathegories of sngs, so 1hyper=1turbo=1reg.

      gl with reaching your goal sir,

      Day 1:

      Games: 176
      AVG bin: 58.84$
      Played: 5.8h
      EV ROI: 21.6%
      ROI: 8.4%

      Graph:



      Volume was bit low, but on other hand I have good reasons for that. First was baby who had reaaaal problems to go to sleep. So i didnt want to go in my visitor room (also place where I keep my computer) to disturb. Second one is sauna, which is warm now :)

      As for playing quality I was really happy with it. Better than usual. Might be partly for that nice upswing previous month end that boosted my self confidence :)

      How are you playing so many games a day? It makes me sick to even play like 30 games or so :s_biggrin:

      Because Predrag (II77) has also joined the competition and is going for 5K games (I suspect he'll try to outvolume you if you fall short), its rules might as well be changed to 'the winner will get an hour of free coaching from the runner-up' :f_biggrin:

      (Well, of course that won't happen as neither of you is an official coach; I hope Pokerstrategy isn't greedy and the coach for the winner is Collin.)

      Best volume during this month. Starts to be ok, but 50-100 more games would start to be day I am happy volume wise. Boards really didnt run into my favor and had quite a few setup spots.

      As you wish!

      Month so far:

      Games: 2632
      Avg. bin: 47.3$
      Played 75.9h
      EV ROI: 6.1%
      ROI: 5.3%
      $/h: 152

      Graph:



      During this month I took table optimizer and sharkystrator on use and I have to say I am more than happy with them! Let me focus on game decisions much more than when I were manually registering to all games. This month has been hot run, but I would think these changes have something to do with it as well.
