    SEPTEMBER
    Now it’s correct, I forget AUGUST obviously 🙂 I’m 8 days late with the update of my blog, this will not happen again, I promise. September was a pretty good month. Like I mentioned, my second son was born and because of that, I got some vacation to take care of my first son. I had to reorganize my grinding days for the beginning, but in the end, I found the way how to grind the decent amount of volume. I’m still not satisfied with my volume, I think I could push myself and grind at least 130 hours, but 100 hours it’s not bad for me in this situation. So after 75k on NL50, where I have 6bb/100 I started to add some NL100. In September I’ve got pretty good run and took some profit and have to say, that there is not much difference between NL50/NL100, the toughest part is not to be scared money and play my game. So let safe some results for my future myself 🙂

    OCTOBER
    Another month is over and I am here right in the beginning of the new month how I promised, really proud of myself. I was running like a god this month and it is shown in the results, but I would also say, that the hard work I’m putting in off the tables is getting paid off. Since I was moved to the Elite(Crusher) group, which is coached by Asimos, I can feel the progress I have made and I really like the homework I get after every coaching, so finally, I know exactly what I should be working on. For example, right now I’m working on analyzing an opponent who I’m playing a lot with (mostly fish, regfish) and taking precise notes. I have never done this and I like it, it is so much fun, playing against the fish, when you know a bunch of tendencies that you can easily expoilt.

    I didn’t get the 50k hands in the October, which is kind of disappointing and I have to really work on my work ethic. I have to find out, how to be more productive because there were some moments, where I didn’t feel like playing because I was too tired and I did some stupid things (like playing PES or watch soccer on the TV) instead of doing something productive things. So this month I will try to follow this: DOING WHAT IS LESS FUN NOW, MEANS YOU HAVE MUCH MORE FUN IN THE FUTURE!!!
    or: WORK HARDER WHEN ITS HARD, AND IT WILL BECOME EASY FOR REAL!!!
    and: TODAY IS THE DAY TO IMPROVE. TOMORROW IS A FANTASY. IF YOU WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW, YOU WILL HAVE TWICE THE AMOUNT OF WORK TO DO!!!!!

    I would like to play at least 50k in November and study the decent amount of the time, so let’s work on this goals. GL in November. Cheers

    Hey Man awesome blog!

    Great to see you crushing it.

     

    How do you balance family/full time work/poker? 

    What kind of schedule do you have?

    Im in a similar situation and have been struggling to figure it out.

    Hey buddy thanks, yeh that’s very tough to balance it all :). My big advantage is that I work 24h shifts and then got 4 days off. In those days I act like poker pro 🙂 7-14 I’m with my family; 14-18 session; 18-20 family, workout; 20-24 session; 24-01 study. I believe it is very hard to balance it all with normal 9-5 job. GL

    Thats quite interesting schedule, thanks. Its given me a couple of ideas.

    Might just have to incorporate a poker day + some  early mornings/late nights. I will eventually find something that works for me haha

    Thank you 😉

    NOVEMBER
    So I have done my homework for today and its time to summarize the month of November. Firstly I have to say, that I’m now satisfied with my volume and hours I have put in this month. I have lost 8 days overall. 4days at the beginning where I visited my parents, 2 days in the end when I took a holiday at work and wanted to grind hard, but I’ve got sick and I was just laying in my bad. Then I lost 2 days bcs of a bad connection (also lost biig pot bsc I’ve got disconnected in 3b pot, where I had a set and vill bets 1/4 or something OTR just to steal it lol) it was probably VPN problem, so already bought a new provider, so I hope that this month will be better. Secondly, I have to say, that I’m still running pretty good. Thirdly, I hope the good variance will stay with me next month as well 😉

    I have to admit, that it’s very hard for me to put in a good amount of hours and get done all of the homework we are getting in the group right now. Not just bcs I have 2 kids, who wants lot of my attention (and I’m happy to giving it to them 🙂 I also changing my living place (moving on first of February, can’t wait to have my own workroom), to be exact we are buying older house and doing some reconstructions on it. So all of this + my job is very time consuming and my schedule is very tight.

    My goals for December with the Xmas (which takes like 5 days) are to play at least 120hours + attend all the coaching sessions + get done all of the homework.

    Hey Sipak, great job for November!

    I had you for a moment after 3 weeks , but 3 consecutive stop-loss days was too much at the end 😀

    Not that this is a big problem right now, but please crossout the names in the rankings. Nobody needs to know.

    Gl for december but I am going to take the first spot this month for sure :p
