Chase Update

The grind to SN isn’t really going that well

I will make it but that’s becasue I’ll have to 4 table which is something I don’t really want to do but missing SN isn’t an option.

Bascially a combination of being a little lazy and being too polite to tell people “no”.

Add to that the fact that for the month’s 15 sessions I only have 5 winners, poker is being a little unkind to me at the moment. Fortuantely those 5 winners have been big enough to put me about 90BB up for the month. It’s just been a total hair-raiser, the last session I played was the first session of the month where my won@SD was in the 50’s (Still managed to lose 8 out of 10 massive pots where I had 80% equity or more on the turn). It’s either been in the 70’s or in the low 40’s for the rest of the month, nothing in between and I’ve been flying all over the place and it’s been really frustrating but I don’t have to put up with it for long. Just get through the next 4 days and then thank Stars that I only have to get 7500VPPs to maintain SN from now and it’ll be easier to get the points now because certainly in the first few months of 2010 I’ll be taking it easy and re-assessing some goals.

Its definitely worth getting now that they have lowered the monthly requirement to maintain SN, so don't be tempted to let it slip away! I am already concerned about how I am going to maintain it as January could be a difficult month work-wise. I normally only play two tables so may try more to get there quicker. 3/6 is meant to be giving more VPP next year, but if I am four tabling I think it will have to be 2/4. We will see.

I think you get one month's grace don't you?

So even if you miss it in January as long as you make it in February you should be fine.

Yeah 3/6 gets about 5% more VPP and 5/T about 10-15%, also game creating is a lot better now

True and it may come to that - miss in January - although it leaves no margin for error later on.
