      K.I.S.S. - nothing but HEM, Spotify, and PokerStars.

      HUD is just VPIP/PFR/3b but I take quite a lot of notes (as many as I can while 6-tabling Zoom anyway) whenever someone does something very distinctive/OOL/retarded.

      Nice chance to reply to people who asks me how do I mix SNG's and zoom when I do it.. This is the way to do it, it just must be well organized with zoom in the middle:

      Setup


      This is old setup, im not grinding 1700 h/hr that much this month. But i change the setup every day almost :D

      Btw i dont DO the $/hr. I do h/hr. Maybe this will change soon with the new setup. Also, got the screens and the grinder pc, from a 10$ starting capital from THIS exact site :heart:

      42" TV with PT and 4 tables, and 4 tables on a 100" projector. All controlled with wireless keyboard and mouse combo from my favourite chair.

      the setup:


      repescov
      I have an usual pc. But I want to share my desktop customization which helps me in my grind.

      ss



      What benefits are from this set-up:
      1. the top right logo of PS is a 1 click launcher for PokerStars, HM and TN.

      2. the top block is a summarizing and motivation tool, where I see how many hands I played, what bankroll I have including rakeback which is calculated differently on different vip statuses.

      3. rss for news, pokernews (pokerstrategy also).

      4. calendar where I can put notes about important mtt, wheather and music player with lyrics and other useful shortcuts.

      5. and at last but not least, is a pretty cool desktop ..

      ragney
      My 'Office'. Nothing special regarding tables because I play 2-3 tables heads up. Left side of the screen is for stars client + skype + some charts. Right side is poker only.

      - Extra comfortable adjustable chair for max comfort: bought for €300
      - Additional support for legs (below the table)
      - Two 24" inch monitors
      - Mechanical keyboard
      - Razer mouse with mousepad that supports my arm
      - Refrigerator for my daily needs

      i started poker by 1 CRT monitor 14" then bought another CRT 17" 3 years ago.
      in these years i could upgrade my computer and after that i bought these monitors one by one and added to my setup.
      now my poker profit is 3 times more than my hard work salary.
      i want to quit my job but for variance of poker & black friday i affraid and still hard working because i am married.

      This is my favorite desktop background.
      this picture refresh my soul!


      JCSeerup




      On my second screen I usually have either Youtube open or watching Naruto or some other TV-show. I also just bought one of those smart little hipster devices (iPad) which I will probably use to watch Naruto, Youtube or Spotify and then just use screen two for TN2, PS lobby hand counter, etc.

      The HUD is made by Pleno1, I just edited the colours since they confused me a bit, and I made colour coding for when opponents are not complete unknowns.

      Edit: forgot to include my lucky leprechauns, I will upload pics later :D


      bbosstjan
      Nothing really special about my setup except for one thing. When I was taking a screen shot something really nice happened...... oh well...just see for yourself if you can spot it... ;)

      Without being sure I think he got it from Pleno, he showed it in his video series. Don't know what program it's made in though.

      Yea I'm not particularly asking for the ranges but just the program, hopefully he can come in and post or I will ask pleno. Thanks.

      Not sure but isn't the image of HolyMichelle not allowed? Topic was to show how you grind. So that means not taking random pictures from google/internet? Because that's not "you".

      Tbh I don't really mind, it's true that one should show their grind station, so I actually thought it was meant as a joke since he is playing from his phone, the bigger question to me is why people think it's the most awsome grind station (not for me to decide though). Anyway it's majority rules, so if the majority think Holly has the most awsome grind station I don't see why he shouldn't win. Obv it will suck to be beaten for one of those cool prizes, but that's part of the competition.

      He shipped 5.2k recently playing MM event on his phone. That's why people found it interesting, and I don't know why would that bother someone. Some sense of humor ppl needed, stay positive.. :)

      We're trying to figure out what to do with your tie. Hopefully we can just make it a tie and have you both in 3rd place, but that also depends on the resources we have etc.

      Once we have that figured out we'll let you know, this is also why we haven't updated here yet :)
