  • January MTTs & TCOOP blog

    I'll document my January grind here

    Have been busy zooming lately to get to SN, but now I will return to the lolzy land of MTTs and try to bink over 9000!

    My starting roll will be a few thousand dollars, and I'll be playing solely on Stars. Programs used: HEM2, Pokerstove

    Goals:
    $5k+ profit
    FT a TCOOP



    Still waiting for TCOOP schedule to be released, but I'll be sticking mostly to the <$300 games, with a possibility of playing the main event ($700) if the roll is up. Will also probably play lots of deadline satties, as they are really +ev to play.

    I'll post updates and interesting hands in this thread.

    Stay tuned !

      Thankyou Update: This is on! I'm super excited. Nearly sold out a $3.6k package on another site and I've put up a $1.8k package here (fingers crossed it sells !) Gives me enough funds to play at least 35 of the 50 TCOOPs! It's gonna be some serious alarm setting and scheduling! No more staying up late, I gots me a regular job! For 11 days I've been preparing mentally for TCOOP for months now, and hopefully I can make everything come together nicely in 2 weeks and make everyone some moneyumbup:

        After a bit of an unsure start, not unexpected really, my stake has now sold over a third of the available shares. This is good news and hopefully others will follow suit (spades if possible, i'll accept hearts and clubs ! ! )

        I've also looked more carefully at the Premier League. I'm trying to qualify for it this month through the $1.10 satties. After 5 games I'm ranked 156th so I'm waiting and seeing what happens and whether I need to play any more qualifiers. I'm not sure how much volume is needed to have a chance at the top 10 once playing the league, but if I think it's attainable then I might try volume grinding the league in Feb.


        I've been playing lots of the PSO TCOP games, they're good practise for the real TCOOP except with much smaller fields and more awesome players.

        Really looking forward to TCOOP, counting the days

          I just got an email from stars with my december 2013 stats and I thought Id share them here December 2013 in Review Cash game hands 121947 Sit & Go tournaments 309 Scheduled tournaments 48 I didn't actually know how many zoom hands I'd played, since I was on another computer while fixing my normal one. December was tiring for me, I was frantically trying to reach nova and cash was the quickest way. This month I expect the stats to end up looking something more like this: Cash game hands <1k Sit & Go tournaments unsure, maybe <200 as i'll be playing 180s and not 6max hypers Scheduled tournaments 400? again unsure Might not even reach the required VPPs for nova this month but I'm not too bothered about that, playing well and trying to make money is the goal for January.umbup:

                            wat is TCOOP??

                            Went epically bad , but I'm happy with how I played.

                            Didn't get great MTT volume in in January, gonna try and grind some low stakes mtts/satties to bigger mtts/8-11$ 180s

                            Also I have plenty of time to prepare for SCOOP, which is better value and less risky than TCOOP. i still dont know wat tcoop stadn for.



                            P.S. i have a new blog post coming out soon regarding mathematics and poaker.
