I ended up playing around 1900 hands today in an effort to get rid of the Pokerstars bonus. The air conditioner helped a lot with that as even in the UK itâ€™s getting up and over 90F and jeez, roller coaster city.
First 2 sessions were pretty nice wins but then the 3rd session was a nightmare.
I ended the 2nd sesison by losing with JJ to 99 on the river (9 obv) and that continued for almost all the 3rd session. Iâ€™d lost $140 in the first 25 hands and at one point was almost $200 down playing mostly 1/2. fortunately I got my act together posting a loss of only $120 for that session but then all righted itself again for my final run which has left me wanting to do nothing but go to bed!!
FWIW hereâ€™s how my day went in graph form
and hereâ€™s how I looked around the middle of it
However decent day Iâ€™d have MORE than accepted at the start of the day. Iâ€™ll split it up and then conglomerate
VPPs: 802 (FPPs â€“ lots)
400 VPP to go according to my calculations so 2 sessions tomorrow, cash in the $160 Stars bonus and ride into the sunset for 3 days to recover my sanity againâ€¦.it ran offâ€¦..again.
One final piece is on the new Pokerstars VPP structure which will be coming in soon. As far as SHFL goes itâ€™s a disaster for anything below 2/4, meh at 2/4 depending on if you game create or HUHU and marginall y better at 3/6 and WAAAAY better at 5/T+. Pretty much the shopt of it for anyone whoâ€™s wondering.
Take care Guys
