    Finally getting around to starting this blog. 51 yr old recreational player (fish to many) from Northern Ireland who has played very little over the past few years. Thanks to Poker Stars giving me free tickets every so often, I’ve decided to give poker another go, focusing on Spin and Go’s. Having played a selection of $0.25 and $1 games, I realised I have no idea how to play these, only saving grace is that most of my opponents are even more clueless at these levels. Signed up to the Spin and Go academy last week, plenty of content on the site which should hopefully give me a good foundation to progress through the micro levels. 

    I don’t yet have a cohesive plan of action, want to find my feet before setting targets. What I will do is document my progress, both in study and in playing the game, accountability is paramount for success. Let the fun begin…

    quick session tonight at the $1 level, 1-tabling, 15 games, 6 wins, profit $3

    had 13 games at 2x, 1no 4x, and 1no 6x, lucky enough to win both the 4x and 6x multiplier games

    nothing much stands out in the games, usual suckouts and bad beats for everyone. i am sure i made mistakes in these games, need to set up some review time to go along with playing and study time.

    2 short sessions tonight

    7/16 in $0.25 games, profit -$0.50

    6/14 in $1 games, profit $10,  

    key tonight was winning both 6x multiplier and 2/3 of the 4x multiplier at the $1 levels

    having some trouble with hold’em manager, went to review my session and hands arent being imported, might be time to finally get Poker Tracker and download a spin and go HUD.

    another profitable session tonight, went 8/16 for $6 profit

    played without a hud, 1-tabling, no notable difference, players still very bad. 

    trying to get a routine of watching a video a day, pick up some tips on how to play in certain situations and see how i fare, some little gems in the video’s so far

     

    game distribtion: 2x – 10no,  4x – 4no,  6x – 2no

    Back playing the $0.25 games as I get some practice in 2-tabling. Played 48 games, started well but got a bit tired as the session went on, resulted in several mistakes, became a bit spewy in certain spots and a spite call as the session ended poorly. Not happy with how the session went but must learn from it. To end up 2 BI’s was unexpected and frankly not deserved.

    Game Distribution: 13/36 2x multiplier

                                         3/6 4x multiplier

                                        2/6 6x multiplier

     

    Downloaded Poker Tracker, got the 30 day trail but again a problem with Poker Stars as PT doesnt recognise the folder which is supposed to store my hand history’s, Stars not saving the hands to the folder either. Tried changing to another folder but no joy. 

    Watched Paul’s video ‘Playing BB v SB 3-handed (part 1), another excellent video, all concepts very well explained. Have a feeling that these video’s will see repeat viewing in the near future.

    Today was the first of many stumbles in my journey as the beast that is variance finally awoke. Very frustrating to watch hand after hand lose  in such a manner but I will just have to get used to it. Started my session 2-tabling the $0.25 games before 1-tabling the $1 games, then finished of the night with a few more $0.25 games.

    Game Distribution: $0.25  2x – 8/15              $1  2x – 1/12

                                                     4x – 1/3                      4x –  0/2

                                                     6x – 0/0                     6x – 1/2

     

    Down 8BI’s in the 1s and up 2 BI’s in the $0.25 games, which was helped by winning my last 4 games. Didnt get to watch a video tonight, back to work after the Easter break and football on the telly restricted my free time but back to the usual routine tomorrow.

    Short session tonight, limited time but felt the need to watch another video before playing. 

    Thankfully a successful session, hands held up for the most part, was more focused than last night but again that may be due to the session being short.

    Game Distribution:  $5  2x – 1/1

                                         $3 5x – 1/1

                                         $2 2x – 1/1

                                         $1  2x – 6/12

                                               6x – 0/1

    Another session of highs and lows as spins continue to frustrate, a $11 scoop mtt ticket win in a $2 game the only real bright spot of the day. In fairness, I’m still learning the game, my first week finished, the learning process usually has a price to pay, just hope its not too severe as I move forward.

     

    Game Distribution:  $5  2x – 0/1

                                         $3  4x – 0/1

                                         $2  5.5x – 1/1 (ticket win)

                                         $0.50  6x – 1/1 (free ticket) 

                                         $1  2x  – 4/16

                                               4x  1/2

                                               6x  0/1

    Another day of highs and lows on Stars, par for the course, esp when you dont play enough volume. Also played some $1 games on Party Poker,  ended up 8 BI’s, players seemed a lot more tight passive, hopefully they will stay like that. Watched another excellent video from Paul, again lots of golden nuggets in them that really help my game.

     

    Game Distribution:  $5  2x – 1/1

                                         $3 3x  – 1/1

                                         $2  2x  – 1/1

                                         $1  2x  – 4/16

                                               4x  – 0/3

    43 games played today, ran pretty good for the most part, esp in the bigger multiplier. Still a lot to learn, numerous spots appeared that I wasn’t sure what was the best line to take, all part of the process of learning.

    Game Distribution:  $5   2x  –  0/1

                                         $3   3x  –  0/1

                                         $2   2x  –   1/1

                                         $1   2x   –   6/24

                                                4x   –   9/13

                                                6x   –   1/2

     

    Decided to do a simple analysis of my weeks play, just games played and profit as i played a few mtt sng’s which I need to filter out. A week consists of Mon – Sun.

    $5   –   2/4   $0.00

    $3  –   2/4   $12.00

    $2  –   4/4   $15.00

    $1  –   41/120   -$6.00

    $0.50  –   1/2   $3.00   

    $0.25  –   27/67   $0.75

    Interesting to see I’m down in the 1s, hopefully turn that around this week. Gonna cut the updates down to a weekly review, no point updating every session if I’m just posting the number of games, win and losses, and to say I watched a video, unless something interesting crops up.
