Starting a poker blog to help build grind motivation and such

Ive played poker basically on a bunch of different sites but not so much right now during the school semester


Figure having a few people follow my progress would help out


Ive played thousands of Super turbos (mainly DoNs) on Ipoker, a lot of these games being up to $50 games


Deposited $250, gunna try and grind it up with some mediocre BR management


Heres the link

Nov 26-28 grindover 600 games in these 3 days (details are in the blog)


managed to make the SNG leaderboard for the month (it ends on the 28th) even though i didnt start until Nov 22


-played 130 DoN games in the last 2 hours of the SNG leaderboard time to manage to crack 23rd place
-i believe 130 DoN's in 2 hours is my personal record


$250 starting roll is up to about $450 + $300(from VIP points)


so I've basically trippled my $250 roll to $750 in 3 days


Ive also began to add $20 games, and have started playing more HU games








Heres my graph since the start (my earnings are all basically from RB, pending bonus, leaderboard, VIP etc.)the link to the graph is also posted so you can see a bigger view of it

Downswing. Nothing unheard of, Ive had swing from 1 session where you could be down 40buyins and finish the session up money


Average buyin since i started the blog has been about $10, although my average buyin on the account is about $20 after over 5k games


My average buyin lifetime is probably around $15-20 with over 20k games


I have been typically playing DoN 4max games, although ive been playing some 6max Super turbos and some HU super turbos

Havent been playing much due to the fact that its exam time at school. Done 3/5 exams so far probably going to grind hard after exams

Ive started to play some Speed Poker (same as Rush/Zoom)


played 16k hands in like 11 hours, just trying to learn the game right now I havent played cash games in a while and Ive never really played Speed Poker before but I think it could be pretty profitable


Also had a $1 MTT cash for $49.80 (got first)


Full blog post @ http://fisher1414.blogspot.ca/


Here my Speed Poker graph so far

Found a HEM database from my computer at home

Remembered an old session from like Last April that i thought was pretty funny
Figured I'd post the graph here


Around the time I was playing mainly 6max $20-40 Super Turbos and Turbos on 888 poker
But I had decided that however weak the competition was there I'd rather play with a better RB deal somewhere else.. So i cashed out and left like $75 on the account
Decided to just play some lower stake cash games for fun, because I didn't really have too much money on the time at other sites


Ending up having a lowpoint of a $30 BR, then hit the Godmode switch
This is how you run $30 into $3500 in like 4 hours.. and then lose the majority of it right back

Im playing at Titan


I'm the top VIP level and also have a RB deal. And the Titan VIP team offers VIP players (players of the top level) a ton of pending bonuses and stuff. So after everything I'm getting probably 65% or higher depending on how i do on leaderboards and what bonuses i get
