This title seems strange.. Missed some of my targets but still had a great week.
I only set 1 goal for this week and that was to play 10,000 hands. Results were not important. I unfortunately didnâ€™t reach that goal due to making a switch from pt3 to holdem manager. I lost every single archived hand I had when I deleted pt3 (if anyone knows I way I can retreive these plz let me know) and it took me a full day to get the program set up. The $50 promo from DC was great tho and HEM was fully worth the effort. The result was me playing about 7,500 hands for the week. Through 6k hands @ 10NL I ran 18BB/100 and well over $200 profit which is just a sick run. I also won 14 (YES FOURTEEN!!) $6.25 HU sng matches in a row (not sngs but matches; 4ppl hu sngs). After the 6k hands I made the switch to 25NL and have defintely found some comfort playing this level. Iâ€™m down about 1 buy-in at the level but as I gather some data and learn to play this level Iâ€™m fully confident I can grab some big result for the coming 10k hands.
So Iâ€™ll set the same goal for next week. 10,000 hands b/w Sunday-Saturday. I hope to play every one of these hands at 25NL but Iâ€™ll have to see how I run/play.
This week I also watched most of the â€˜eightfold path to poker enlightenmentâ€™ series which I guess is what lead me to setting a hand goal rather than profit goal. I think this changed view will really help me grind these micro stakes. Playing hands tagg/lagg style is really all you need to do to beat these games so there isnâ€™t really much point focusing on results.
Anyways, thanks for reading and good luck in this upcoming week of grinding!
