      Hey guys, poker wannabe pro and SS member here. After promotion to 7s I’ve decided that it should be good for me to start a blog. First of all I want to track my progress. I will be using baby steps because in my opinion it is the best strategy for me. Second of all I want to crush 100s spins someday and be filthy rich playing poker. Third of all I want to improve my English skills so I could communicate as fluently as native English speaker (or even better).

      This blog won’t be interesting at all for anybody besides me. I will not post degen stories, nor real life issues. It will be just a notebook, with goals, some short thoughts and probably, from time to time, graphs. Let’s start with the goals.

      Long-term goals:
      :s_drink: become a winning player on 100s spins
      :s_drink: become fulltime professional player
      :s_drink: live like a baller with money from poker
      :s_drink: travel around the world

      Mid-term goals (2016):
      :s_thumbsup: advance to 30s spins by the end of the year
      :s_thumbsup: advance to the highest tennis league in my city

      Short-term goals (this month):
      :diamond: play at least 1200 spins
      :diamond: 80cev/g
      :diamond: 40 hours of learning

      Weekly goals (12-18.09):
      :club: play at least 380 spins
      :club: 80cev/g
      :club: 12 hours of learning (this week HU BB)
      :club: review my notes daily
      :club: start my meditation course
      :club: at least 3x HH review minimum 1h long

      The goals list above is not permanent, it will most likely get bigger and bigger. My plan is to play/learn 6 days a week, with poker-free Thursdays. I’m not sure about my performance with such a schedule but will find out soon. Getting to the optimal point will take some time, I’m ready for that.

      I don't know who SPNB7771 is but hello SDK1987 :)

      It's time for a little summary and it will not be good for me.

      Weekly goals (12-18.09):
      :club: play at least 380 spins 149/380
      :club: 80cev/g 67cev/g
      :club: 12 hours of learning (this week HU BB) done even though it was not only HU BB
      :club: review my notes daily had lazy wednesday so...
      :club: start my meditation course done
      :club: at least 3x HH review minimum 1h long done

      I'm a bit disappointed with myself, mostly because I was lazy at the beginning of the week and at wednesday. After that something bad happened in my family and I was totally off - could not focus on anything. I needed a week to recover. I've learned from first week that planning every day may be important for me because when I have 7 days procrastination kicks in. I was lazy in first days because in my mind I still had time to achieve my week goals. From now on I will plan every grind day, starting monday.

      Some graphs:

      That was a dump mistake of my part, but fixed it :f_ugly:
      Your graphs look good for Spin & Go’s. Keep it up :f_thumbsup:
