Had a decent month in terms of volume - played ~25,000 6max hands and about 500sngs. I broke even on the month completely due to two major tilt sessions. Very discouraging. Anyways, just trying to put that aside and focus on Feb. I'm going to do things a bit differently next month. I'm going to put most of my focus on putting a solid dent into the 100,000vpps needed for supernova. I'll be 12 tabling full ring for likely 100% of my volume. Aiming for 80,000 hands or more. I'll actually be pushing hard for 120,000 @ 25nl-100nl depending on how I run. Not really setting a profit goal. I'll be happy to break even or a slight winner and make 15,000 or so vpps. I might use some fpps to play the Sunday kick off tourny each week on stars because it gives a much higher value per fpp than the other platnium star cash bonuses. Its 6,900 for a $109 tourny token which is ~$.0157 per fpp compare with the $.012 per fpp for the $300 cash bonus. I don't mind taking the risk on at this point to give my self a possible huge bankroll boost going into the spring/summer. I'm planning on making a significant portion of income (maybe 100%) from playing poker during these months as I finish the few courses I'll have left for my degree. I've taken the last few days as a breather from poker as I prepare for the full ring. I'm watching the series "full ring king". I have a huge amount of respect for Mike Newman as a player/coach and if there is one player's career I'd want to have its his. He has the perfect ptr graph. When I look at that graph I think, "stress free poker" (if there is such a thing..) haha.
Anyways, thats all I got.
