OK, time for update. I was extremely focus on grinding and working on my game from the beginning of 2019. Decided to slowly mix some MTTS into my standard MTSNGs grind schedule and it worked out pretty well so far. Games are super soft and I think that overall they are much more +EV then SNGs, as the playerpool is way worse. MTSNGs are filled with regs on the late stages, and even breakeven regs or low-roi-mass-multitabling types are killing EV, as they know push/fold game pretty well. The reason why I started adding more MTTs is also that SNG grind has been a little painful lately. Seems like I cannot win coinflips either on semi final tables or final table, but I know that this is just variance and it will all turn around. When it does, I will come back to the SNG leaderboards again :) I also grinded a little bit of cashgames on the side, or when I have hour of two of spare time. I really think that playing cashgames can help me develop as a player and have better understanding of the game. I started with NL16 and recently moved to NL25, as I developed more feeling to the games, build some basic strategy and made adjustments. I do know that I still have no idea what I am doing, as I have never played cash seriously before. And I don't plan on doing so fulltime in the future. Cash is boring.
Moreover, I have been accepted as a coach for micro and low limits MTT and SNGs by Standard Backing stable. I have 3 students that I am currently working with. I really enjoy coaching and will continue to do so both in a stable as well as on my own (check coaching section for more information). I had given a couple sessions privately through my website, and some of the students said that they see the results almost imiediately after our sessions. This makes me happy, it really does.
My game overall hasn't been better. I feel very confident and, the winrate is great. This year so far, we are making EV of 12bb/100 in SNGs and MTTs. Reviewing on my own and with students helped my game tremendously. I also plan on writing down preflop and postflop solutions for MTSNGs in the future, as I have developed really good population reads and I feel like I know tendencies and gameplan of most players. It is gained by playing a lot with the playerpool, over 100k games so far! Sick. Furthermore, working with GTO+ solver helps. Talking hands over discord channel helps. Talking strategy with friends helps. Investing in sharskope gold subscription and getting sharkscope desktop HUD helps. Turning off all the distractions while grinding or working helps. Quiting facebook and instagram helps. Living poker 24/7 also doesn't hurt. Not drinking alkohol, not going out too often and taking care of diet and physical activity would definiately help. This is something I will be working on in the near future.
This is a war, and we better be prepared.
