      Hi,

      I am epok (this is not my name is a nickname of mine).I want to start this blog because I want to build a bankroll and play 15$ spin&go.I started with a BR of ~ 300$ and I am playing the 3$ spin&go on stars.so far I played 30 games and watch 3 videos.I want to watch all of them and then start working on my game alone.

      I want this blog because I want to keep me motivated and is like a diary too.

      I don't know how often I will post results and so but I will try to do it frequently.

      Always nice to start a blog :f_thumbsup:
      I expect you will use a 100 buy-inns BRM for the Spin & Go’s. That’s pretty aggressive, but if you down move on time it’s not a big issue I think.

      Further I wish you all the best to crush the Spin & Go’s so long you not play against me :gl:

      Best regards,

      thanks for the good wishes!

      btw:what limits do you play?

      I play the $7 most of the time. They have also a good value I think. Still enough fish in it.

      so i reached gold status :D ..but some how i can't watch any videos..when i click play it says "video does not exist".what is that about?

      so far running good.the bigger prize was 10x(30$) and i won it.i played 171 games and i am on plus +81$ with ROI of 15.8%.i heard that it's quite hard to have 10% ROI in 3$ spin&go so i think 6-7% ROI is doable.

      That’s weird you can’t watch videos anymore.
      Do you have it with the video Spin&Go at $60 with coffeeyay as well, because it works fine for me.

      It worked in that video and i watched it..btw it was not so interesting and not so helpful in my opinion..how did you find it?

      My worst run until now were 10 consecutive games without winning..i wonder what are some downswings here?

      Yesterday i played some zoom so i can get a ticket to the freeroll on stars and i played 1100 hands and got dealt AA only once and instead of winning the hand and win a ticket i ran into AA and splited the pot :D

      I was going to the video section. Than I’m clicking on the ‘Search’ button and I marked ‘Gold’ and used the orange ‘search’ button. Than it looks like this and clicked on the first random video and that was a ‘Spin & Go video on that moment. So you can also search on ‘Spin & Go’s’ and than you find these videos.

      So that’s pretty easy if you know how it works.

      Cheers,

      it's time for an update..i played about 400 games and at one point i was up about 30BI but in 150 games i had a ~54BI downswing:f_biggrin: these spins are crazy.

      anyway i was thinking a lot these day and i want to take it a bit more serious. tomorrow i will post an update with my goals and i want to spread them in daily,weekly,monthly and until the end of the year.

      i watched all videos for spins here on ps so now i want to start working on my game and i want to do it daily.(btw if someone is interested in a skype group or something i am in)

      so that is all for tonight and will post tomorrow goals and others

      bye

      How many 3$Spins per day you play to reach Gold star and on how many tables at the same time?What is your chipEV/game,because this is important for this format?

      i play around 70 games a day 3 tabling..i am not focusing in volume so much as i want to focus on studying and interpret stats.for gold star on stars you need around 1000 games a month.

      i know chip EV is important but i don't know where to find it in HEM 1..do you have any idea?

      do you play spins too?

      thanks for stopping by

      I try to play 3$ spins too atm :f_drink: .For one spin you take 0.83 VPP(3$ Spin and go),so how you can reach Gold star(2500 VPP) with only 1000 per month?I use PT4,but in HM1 u can probably check what is your expected chips/game too,maybe someone in forum who use it can help.

      my bad..i meant for gold here on pokerstrategy you need only around 1000 games..and you get 0.99vpp for a game(rake is 0.18c so 0.18*5.5=0.99vpp)

      my aim is not to reach gold status playing 3$ i want to study and get a good base of things and be really prepared for the 7$ because there with my normal volume i get gold.

      not quite..in 7$ rake is 0.42c so you get 2.31vpp so 2500/2.31=1083 games..it's even better:f_biggrin: ..in the beginning i am planning to mix 3's with7's so i guess there i need aroun 1600 games

      That’s not true ether. You need 2.500 VPP to reach GoldStar on PokerStars and you get 2,31 VPP per $7 Spin & Go. So you need 1.083 games to reach it.
