A New Direction for 2018 - Ash's Blog
Some of you will know from previous blogs that I'm primarily a tournament player. Though from September last year until February this year I was playing 'Spin & Goes' full-time after being backed. This was decent, I learnt a LOT from the twice weekly coaching and I feel that my game has hugely benefited from it. I quit pretty much just because I missed playing tournaments too much, and the backing company have said the door is open if I want to come back in the future, so that's good!
I kind of knew this in the past but, I do prefer Omaha over NLHE. 4, 5, 6, more cards, just give me more than 2! So since quitting spins my focus has mainly been on PLO, both cash and tournaments and PLO and PLO hi/lo though I am still playing NLHE as well.
The purpose of this blog is basically to keep me honest. In the past I've had monetary goals or 'number of cashes' goals but I no longer feel these are the best way to keep track as you can start focusing on trying to achieve a set goal rather than just playing the best you can.
I will be recapping each session I play, both live and online, and keeping a thorough profit and loss 'account' on here. Obviously I would hope to be in decent profit by the end of the year but it isn't the main thing as long as I feel I am learning ,especially embarking on a new journey primarily in PLO which I am still relatively new to.
PLO4 cash on Unibet
PLO/NLHE/Horse MTT's on Pokerstars (micro up to $5.50 buy-in)
Live PLO/NLHE tournaments
My main online grind will be on the PLO4 tables on Unibet, joining @Ovi8fan in hopefully moving up to PLO10 and higher as the year goes on! One goal I am going to give myself for this is see 2500 flops this month (starting late this month obviously) and then 5000 for May!
I'm planning to grind 2 MTT sessions a week, of which I will be selling action to hopefully regular backers on a monthly basis. I need to finalise the days and schedule then will be offering this in The Marketplace. This will allow me to play more and bigger tournaments, with the idea that each month I will be able to increase the amount of tournaments or buy-ins and still pull a profit!
I did actually play a live PLO tournament this evening, which will be the official start of this blog, but I will update that tomorrow once I have bored you all with pics from the 2 festivals that I attended over the past month!
Thanks for popping by, please say hello and let me know what you think!
