      Hi call me Burton


      I have been playing poker for around 6 months now and its only since last month i started taking seriously. I only played tourneys when i got my roll and done well in some of them but then would just slowly lose the money i won. I want to build my roll and then be able to plays MTTs as this is what i enjoy the most. So its time to put my game face on.

      I have made 2 other blogs and here and i didnt keep up with them purely because i was running bad. I have decided to grind sngs mainly playing 9 man turbos. So this summer all i will be doing, is grinding, going gym keeping fit, playing football and of course to PARTYYYYYYYYY!!!.

      So this summer i am attemptng to go LARGE!

      My roll is currently only on $126.90
      I am going to be starting off at $1.20

      I will probably follow a 100BI rule so will move up to $2.25 when get to $225.I want to be playing as many sngs a week as i can.

      Long Term Goals:

      -Become solid Sng player with good ROI%

      -Read/watch and article/video every day.

      -reach a roll comfortable for $10+ MTTs.

      Short Term Goals:

      -Get to gold on PS to watch more vids, coachings etc.

      -Reach $2.25 sng limit.

      :diamond: My MTT Achievements:

      -$2.20 Turbo NL, 2nd of 608

      -$2.20 Turbo NL, 4th of 502

      -$3.30 FL, 3rd of 72

      -$2.20 Cashout NL, 9th of 756


      -$1 rebuy daily dollar 50th of 4,563
      thank you for reading, will try to update most days.

      swing, swing, swing, each session i have played have been totally different for, really bad, avergae, just break even and big win. I am beggining to understand how much variance there are in these multi-table sngs. Here my graph for my overall progress so far.

      Havent been playing as much poker as i would have liked to be lately been very busy and probably will be busy for the rest of this weeek :(

      i run ok in last couple sessions my br is now on $158.95 my ROI% is 16.7%

      So an extrra goal for me is to put more volume in and make sure i am playin 100+ a week preferable alot more.

      Going to gym now i think keeping fit and working out, is good for poker, and your mindset so am going to keep up with it :)

      grind grind grind.

      Yesterday my HEM went funny as i didnt realise i needded to update it as FT had an update. So it missed some sngs i played one session and broke even.

      But then later at night i played two tourneys. A FL $3.30 and a $3.30 rebuy rush tourney.

      I busted in the rush afteer having one rebuy. But managed to come 3rd out of 72 (i think) any ways i cashed for $30, my graph on HEM doesnt show it because i didnt update yesterday so has big down swing in it lol.

      Current Bankroll : $179.52

      Obviously i have many leaks in my game that i need to sort out quick!

      I think that my heads up game is pretty poor and has cost me some money so am going to be working on improving that and also my bubble play.

      will update again soon :)
