            Having just seen your blog, I can totally understand why you amended your goals to SnGs: Avoid at all costs. :O
            The variance in those hypers is incredible. Not for the faint-hearted, or terminally unlucky, that's for sure!

            Better luck in cash!

              Yeah its a rough game, they say if you play around 10k games then thats a good sample to know how you will fair in SNG but I wouldn't survive that long I rather play cash games for now, btw I need to read your blogs on some 2NL tips and strategies for tonight umbup:

                Played 3035 hands today trying to figure stuff out about this game. I learned that fish (including myself) will call you down with ace high so bluffing is a big no. I'm so noob cause yesterday I wasn't making the standard raise of 3x the BB ($0.06) at 2NL and was doing 2 times raise for normal hands and 3x for premium, that was a leak which I corrected thanks to Artys ABC guide umbup: So with terrible play and some luck I managed to make a tiny(TINY) profit. If I played good I'd probably have a profit of $12 or so but I have no complaints, Stars was very good to me today. Like in this hand even though I got it in good I got huge luck on the river umbup: EV line should be better in the future when I decide to stop chasing flush/str8 draws without good odds I will read more ABC guides tomorrow and continue improving. Can't wait until my day off from work to put in a high volume, maybe 12k hands in one day? jk

                  Hi guys its just day 6 and I'm still learning alot about 2NL my graph shows exactly that I'm still making some huge mistakes, maybe cause I'm acting to fast 4 zoom tabling and making bad decisions lol I even folded AA once . I did experience some unlucky spots which I will post later. As for my hands played im around 13.5k hands played, still a very small sample maybe at the end of January playing over 55k hands will give me a better understanding of where im atumbup: Tournaments I think instead of saving FPPs for cash credits I will use them instead for tournaments(better than my cash roll) to play tournaments like the Sunday Storm 5fpp rebuy Silverstar VIP the Sunday Two Grand 50 fpp 10/20 FPP Bronzstar Turbo The Big Bang Once I get to $150 I can maybe include cash tournaments like the 1.10 NL Hold'em 6-Max-Turbo 1.35 Turbo Knock out

                    Went deep in the Big Bang but in the end couldn't reach the FT . I lost a crucial flip with 99 vs AQ and later busted with only 4 BB left.

                    I'll ship it next time The good news is I'm way ahead schedule with this cash and I know for sure 5NL is right around the corner

                        Nice goals! Keep it going!
                        Good job on your deep run in the big bang, hopefully you indeed chip it next time.

                        Keep that grinding in 2NL up

                          Nice run in the Big Bang killeraxa!

                            Thanks guys Now when I woke up this morning I feel so disappointed I couldn't make the FT and possibly finish in top 3.

                            Funny thing I must admit playing the Big Bang, I was only looking to min cash then bust when I was around the 7k chip mark I avoided every hand except premiums and never called an allin for my tournament life until that bubble burst giving me my first cash in that tournament. That $10 excited me then I loosened up and accumulated chips and got lucky 3 times to make me chip leader with around 27 left.

                            But I have to give it to some of those guys I faced, they made unbelievable lay downs when I had the nuts one guy made it to 2nd place cause he knew I had him. Wish they were fish cause a 200k stack would have ensured my FT spot.

                            Anyway today I will use 100 of my FPP to try and qualify for the Sunday Storm and use $2 for sattys.

                              Played some games on Iphone when I requested a hand history from Stars so figures are slightly off. If only I can have a decent week like this every time to get out of 2NL by next week That's the only way I can get Goldstar if I put in the volume.

                              My HM2 extended trial will end tomorrow so trying to see if Poker tracker will give me an extended trial next. I just can't bring myself to buying this software since I only use it for stats and graphs
