One Of The Toughest Days In Jan


I started the day in the solid position of being up just under +$6.6k overall for the month after bonuses with 2 days left to grind.

I had one eye on beating my best month ever which current stands at +$7,366. I was pumped and ready to go..!!

A few hours into the grind however those thoughts had long disappeared and I found myself down $700 and facing a fight to get back to even.

It was a long grind, almost 11 hours and sadly I failed. I played badly in spots and the unsuccessful fight to get back to even looked like this:


My goal for the final day of the month will be to try to get back to over +$6.5k mtd which means I need to win about $200.

The Sickest Grind Ever, Revisited


After my sick grind day a few days I got thinking about what the sickest grind that I have seen was. This is a few years old now but definitely worth mentioning again.

Chiren80 aka Bachir Boumaaza aka athene aka athenewins was a Stars team pro and took up a challenge to grind 1 million hands in a month.

He basically did what I did in hours on that one day for 31 days straight. I was drained after that one day and said never again. To do it for 31 days must have been hell.

He only did it NL2 but stress on the brain must have been immense even without any financial pressure. Also I think he was 24+ tabling 6max which is much more of a mind screw than my 8-tabling Zoom FR. Also lots more hands per hour. I think I get close to 1,500 hands per hour. He got around 2,375.

Here are the results:

20k Hands In A Day - New Record

Today I played the most hands I have ever done in 1 day. Here is the graph:


I was pretty tired by the last session which seems like a bad move looking at how it ended :)


I'm gonna drop NL25 from my mix now after this mammoth session and only return if I bust my roll or during my drunken sessions.

From now I will still play 8 ZOOM tables but 4xNL100 + 4xNL50. During the day I will play either 4x50NL + 2xNL100 6max or just play regular NL100 tables, possibly 12-16.

(Rake: $2.80)


I tanked hard on the river. I think I fold vs any straight forward reg.

Villain is a 34/5 over 500 hands. He snap jammed river which kinda means not nuts if he is not a reg in my experience. That along with his aggro factor stats made my mind up: F=1, T=1, R=6.2

[x] Biggest pot in like 3 years

Would you fold here, bearing in mind I play 25 n 50 normally?

December 2013 Review

Another year complete. Time is flying. It seems like just yesterday when was I was playing £5 home games with mates for the very first time and getting hooked..!!

Fast forward 8 years and here I am doing my full year review :).

This has been a low volume month with the first 12 or 13 days off.

I didn't worry too much about winning in December. I just wanted to collect my last FPP bonus really and plan my 2014.

All in all the year has been decent with only about 10 months played in actual grind time but still managing to have my best year ever even though the money won is nothing special..!! I continue to make more each year although it is a small year on year improvement. Hopefully I will make more again in 2014.

December saw low volume but nice stacks coming my way:




The final numbers for this month are as follows: 

66,648 Hands Played
9,913 VPPs
34,696 FPPs

+$1,924 (Cash Game Winnings)
+$249 (Tournament Winnings)
+$16 (Milestone Bonus)
+$1,600 (FPP Cash Bonus)
--------------------------------------------------------------------
+$3,789 (Total Month)


The Ytd numbers are as follows: 

1,718,014 Hands Played
239,742 VPPs
839,097 FPPs

+$5,271 - Jan
+$2,064 - Feb
-$235 - Mar
+$3,672 - Apr
+$1,924 - May
+$5,098 - Jun
+$2,901 - Jul
+$5,118 - Aug
+$3,895 - Sep
+$1,517 - Oct
+$120 - Nov
+$3,789 - Dec
--------------------------------------------------------------------
