Wow, nice competition. Wish you all the best for reaching your goal.
I am pretty sure that I will never be able to play such an mount of tables.
I guess 6 is most I can do.

didn't read every ones post but nice stats, except for the ITM at 24%. maybe less multi-tabling will bring that up a bit.

good luck on your goal!!!


These are almost exclusivly MTSNGs (18/45/180 mans),cant compare the usual ITM % with STTs.
In STTs 33% of the players reach the money,in 180 mans for example only 10% of the field reaches the money Blink

I'm dependant on it because technically I'm a professional player now (finished school,no job next year,only source of income will be poker..) Blink
It's not hard for me to grind like this tho,up to 25 tables plays relativly comfortable for me,anything over it I'd consider as proper "work" and I get tired after 2hrs straight 25+ tabling Blink

It depends on the format you play for sure.
Cashgames for examle have alot of postflop play meaning you have to be a thinking player at all times,so I wouldnt recommend it when playing cash.
However SNGs and especially MTSNGs are a very simple game,and once you roughly know shoving ranges by heart you will act faster and then you can increase your # of tables.
It depends on what site you play on too. Pokerstars is by far the multitabling-friendliest software,I doubt I could handle even close as many tables on other softwares Smile
Thanks for the gl wishes


Update will be up tomorrow,didnt play much yesterday,only about 70 games or so,and I'm down a good bit so far,but thats just variance Blink most likely wont play more than that today either Sad

Playing 25-30 tables at once for about 3 hours must be really something.
I dont know if i could ever handle something like that.
We are talking about some serious dizziness there. Smile

It really is hard work playing poker like that,as stupid as it sounds,but it's really exhausting,mentally and in every other aspect Blink

Havent played yesterday and been out with friends till now,gonna start a session in half an hour or so

no this really doesn't sound stupid at all- man just keeping concentration on 25 tables for 2-3 hours is a job in itself, never mind beating the pack on a regular basis, hats off it you are able to pull this off in the long run, must be a nice feeling knowing that you can beat some limit for sure, just like printing cash Big Smile

First update - hit a downswing right away but really lacking volume as well (only 1 session 2 days ago,no play at all yesterday,only 1 session today as well).
Had these swings about 10 times in $7s specificly before tho and even more often in 15s so it's no big deal,I just have to get the grind up and the rest will come by itself Blink

It can happen all the times to hit a downswing especially if you play high variance games like mtt, sng or even zoom/rush poker.

My advice would be to take a pause couple of days and then try and make some more volume Blink

GL on your goal Bemy ! Thumbs Up

Just a question about how you multi 30 tables:

How ? Big Smile

Do you use multiple screens? Tile/cascade them? Use Table Ninja?
Very curious.
Can't multi-table worth a damn myself, but then "I'm an old dude". Smile

I hope you managed to up the graph.
One thing is for sure. If i had that graph, that would have been a reason for me to
take a break from playing poker Smile
Cant have a long losing time and keep playing. I always take a break Smile

Does not look like a good start on your grinding mission.
I keep fingers crossed that you will do better during the next sessions.
I guess would doubt about my play and would stop grinding, but I have no experience in this.

Cant take a break unfortunately,have to grind every day and have to get volume up as well >.<

I only use 1 screen and I try to keep my tables stacked,but in key all in situations I still cant resist moving the specific table out of the stack to see the result,while that's not really optimal Sad
I use tableninja but only to be able to shove by just prerssing 1 button,and to have the annoying "ok" popup handled when regging for games,other than that I just use what the regular software offers Blink
A good way to increase your multitabling ability is to try video games that can train your reaction time,or do reaction-practises (there are lots online).
I have to say I'm not playing my most optimal games either playing that number of tables,but it's obviously more $'s to play 30 tables with 10% ROI than playing 10 tables with 15% ROI Smile

There's no reason for me to take a break because it's just a normal swing,and I'm used alot worse swings,so it doesnt bother me at all because I know I'm +EV in the games,it's just a matter of putting in the volume required to complete my goal Blink
Remember,stoping to play is not what overcomes an unlucky streak..grinding through it is whats required (it's simple variace-math) Blink

Yeah it's definitely not great to start right off with a swing like this,but sooner of later it would've come anyways,and I also know this isn't the only time during the challenge that I will lose $300+ within 300 games or so. I know I'm beating the game longterm (I have the 2nd highest ROI lifetime in $7s of the regs that still play the $7s) so it doesnt bother me,the only thing that really bothers me is my current lack of motivation to play 150+ games per day.
Since sunday I've played 218 games,played about 130 games on sunday,just one session of like 40 games yesterday and a session this morning. Tonight I hope I can get my lazy ass infront of the screen again so that I can at least get to the 300 games mark for the last 3 days..keeping an average of at least 100 games per day is the absolute minimum for a fulltime-player (which I am looking at things realisticly).

Gonna update tonight after I hopefully played another session

This graph is very interesting, you only have one rally, which was between games 110 and 130, all the other push ups were probably made in single games or in two consecutive games, not more than that. The first 100 games you were very stable, then you started winning and after that you lost almost 40 games in a row. You have another stable moment between games 175 and 230 and after that you started falling again. For the values you’re playing, these seem very reasonable results, and you have what it takes to recover from this begining. Hope you make it!

Sorry for not updating last night but was just way too tired Blink
Still not going good,had a good upswing at the beginning of saturday & sunday but one session last evening crushed pretty much all my profits again Sad
Still gotta get volume up more too.
Started adding $3.50 games in the morning because games fill too slowly at that time to get enough tables up playing only 1 buy in level Aww crap!

EDIT: Thats the graph since last update btw,for next update I'll also do an overall graph

Things keep the same range between -$125 and +$180, but you are better now, playing on the positive side. You’re not telling that much about the game but, as you said before, probably this range isn’t such a big deal taking in consideration the number of games you’re playing. The good would be to do enough to pass this range to values between $0 and $300. You have been more far from this objecive than you are now, and only 8 (or 9) days have passed since you started this challenge, which means you are in excelente position to reach it!

I will also be railing and wishing you the best BeMy, ive also started playing on Stars and have just started looking at a niche of games im profitable at. Currently ive only enjoyed reliable success in the 3.50 18 players. Unlike you i notice a big jump in skill above that stake. If i make a mistake in the 3.50 im often still ahead but in the 5$ games players arent as inclined to push/shove such poor holdings.

I am really glad you not only chose to attempt such a task but also kind enough to keep us in the loop. Man how i would love you buy you a couple beers and pick ur brain about poker.

12:16 pm est until approx 4pm est ill be playing today. Please if you are on drop by and say hi. ill do the same Blink

Have you considered allowing people to sweat you while you play? I know personally, I wouldn't mind sitting in on a session or 2.
