Games: 11,429Profit: $13,715VPPs: 72,016.11 Plus I need to factor in the bonuses. $4k – 250,000 FPP Reward Bonus$2.6k – 200,000 VPP Milestone Reward Bonus$410 in BOP Bonuses Then there’s additional money from staking/coaching/videos/cash/etc which is somewhere in […]

The Flight

On a whim, I double checked my flight to San Diego and discovered that I’m supposed to leave on the 29th. Whoops. Thought I was departing on the 28th. And while that means I have one less day to spend with friends in SD, it also means I have one more day to reach my […]

Good things about this week:– I’ve accrued 3k VPPs, leaving me 5400 short of my goal Bad things about this week:– Everything else Haha okay, it’s not thaaaaaaat bad. But the past two days have been pretty sick. The red line isn’t great, the green is much much worse, and I’ve had some gross finishes […]

The Fan Page

After discussing it with a few friends of mine, I decided to make a ‘fan page’ on Facebook. Some of you may already be aware of this as you’re reading it from the actual page. It may not come as a surprise, but at first I was a bit iffy about making a page — […]

The VPP Challenge VI

Almost done. Games: 1,299Profit: $3,425VPPs: 8,097.02 A huge chunk ($2.3k) of this week’s profits came from the $25 Hyper MTT I shipped on Wednesday. Maybe I shouldn’t complain about running bad since I did ship a high variance tournament, but I’m another $600+ under EV this week in STTs, bringing me to $1700 or so […]

The Priorities

Just busto’d the Sunday 10 Million yet I’m surprisingly in good spirits. Maybe that’s because I’m happy with the play I made and didn’t make a deep enough run (Ironic, considering I outlasted 25,000 people) where it would hurt. At no point did I legitimately think I’d ship the $2 million first place prize, even […]

The Promise

Early Wednesday morning, I woke up eager to start a new ‘week.’ STTs weren’t loading that quickly, so I glanced at the MTT lobby to see if any good ones were about to start. $25 6-max Hyper I’ll be honest — I didn’t play it because it sounded profitable; I played because it sounded fun. […]

Yes, this blog still exists despite some clamoring for me to shove it up my ass. Normally I’m pretty excited to write weekly review entries because it means I get to post pretty looking graphs and thinly veiled brags. But no, not this time. Games: 1,496Profit: $298 (+$80 BOP)VPPs: 10,466.80 Definitely the worst week of […]

I’ve meant to crank out a blog entry the past few days but whenever I sat down to type, I was exhausted and lacked the ability to write coherently. It’s been an exhausting couple of days, partially due to quite a bit of runbad but also because humans aren’t meant to function on my current […]

I want to blog right now. I’ve been trying to write something for the past half hour and I’m stuck. No doubt about it, the fatigue is getting to me. There’s some irony in that, as I planned on writing about how I’m finding it difficult to always play my ‘A’ game. When I was […]
