      I want to go for SNE in 2015

      a brief intro

      my name is ben


      i am a feeling player, I have very bad basics in math
      I still don't know how to calculate combos in poker
      and I don't play gto style too. the only tool I use is holdem manager two
      and pokerstove. but basically I don't like to make plays relying on hud too much
      in fact, I never check my 3bet pot pop up this year, lol.( maybe iit's becasue I use x box controller to play poker, it's very annoying for me to check some statistiscs)

      but my strenghs is that I like to put into volume becasue i am a rakeback pro in 2011~2012. I can learn a lot and gain lots of exprience by just playing
      Once I see the showdown , i might know what I did is wrong
      then next time I avoid doing the same mistake

      i hope I can maintain at least 2bb/100 in the long run in zoom500
      and make my sne next year

      this year my goal is 6SN. now the pace is about 4.2SN
      so I have to put like 4k vpp per day till the end of the year

      now I start to collect some one-piece toys.
      and every time I get 100000fpp, I will buy one new toy
      so I would post the toy graph too, haha



      today i have a stiff neck after sleeping
      so I go to a doctor and decide to take a day off
      hope I would keep updating this blog every day

      today I play 3 sessions
      Do not finish 4000k vpp, why
      becasue I lost 1k usd in 10secs, so I decide to call it a day
      I believe into sometimes the badluck would come, we should quit sooner

      sometimes I have a feeling I would win over 5000usd, and most of the time it happen. :]

      i was a pro 50bb player, so it's a shame for me to have so low winrate 40~60bb.
      (0.2 AFTER 80000hands in 40~60bb)
      i would still try another 150000hands, then i decide if I just stick to 100bb play


      total winning this month:+4163

      today I didn't feel like playing at first due to obivous reason that I tilted like 5000usd yesterday. But then I look at the ev yesterday, it's only -500usd (final)

      so I decide to play a little bit, i hit set on 3bet pot ,4bet pot. single raised pot
      limped pot

      today I also go jogging, run about 2.5km
      it's the longgest record that i run this year because in the beginning of this year I have a surgury on my knee. I hope at the end of this year I can easily run over 3~3.5km

      I finally play another very very bad session again, just tilt all the way down
      it's a very strange feeling, I am not sleepy, but I can't focus,
      sometimes I am very sleepy but I am sure I focus on the game

      it's maybe the worst downswing this year:(

      I would try to now play on midnight tomorrow and see what happened

      I don't mean that 6bi is a downswing
      i mean a "mindset downswing".

      Two consecutive day, I start by winning 6bi and then I have a very bad finish
      and i try to fuck arount with other regs,which I don't do often

      i have to stick to my style that play solid

      HI, what do u mean by that hope me won't have enough space for any toys soon?

      whenever I have 100000 fpp, I would unpackage one toy, but when i see any toy I like I would buy them immediately, but would not unpackage it right away:)


      today I can't play poker becasue I selfban myself for 24hr in stars

      I recall 2013 my sne year, I have ban myself 7 days two times, 24hr ban like 7~10times, so I think it's very standard to feel very upset even I seem to be long time small winner.
