True Grinder: The Ultimate Grind.
Alright, I'm back at it again. Only this time, I'll be starting the grind with -$0.00. I pissed away my old BR when I suffered 2 consecutive all in beats when I was called with a 96 suited or some shit like that.
Anyway, Instead of depositing $100 into PS next month, I've decided to build my BR from play money
chips. When I realized this was legitimately possible, I first rolf & lmao and then I jumped right on it. For those of you who don't know, you get roughly (prices vary [supply/demand]) $10 cash
for 1 million play money
chips and it's 100% legal and PS doesn't give a damn. Their only rule is "Don't talk about it at at the tables
Think about it, why would you spend all your time playing freerolls
where you have some
decent players mixed in with an overwhelmingly majority of the luckiest donks around the globe. On top of that, you need a crapload of luck, no matter how skilled you are, in your tourney that has 5000+ entants to even place!!
Why would you play at the microiest of micro limits where there are both donks and decent/learning players mixed in? That ultimately leads to a serious apprenice of the game being frustrated more than he needs to be, poor decision making and the inability to evaluate your poker game
(that your working so hard to improve) properly. Why grind like that when you are able to play for play money and know
competiors are 100
?!!! 100% guaranteed...or your play money reloaded!
Your decision making at the table is so much easier this way and your chances of winning go way up because you know they are going to play shit, and call you with it 100% of the time! On top of that, if you play something like I'll describe, you'll develope patients if you allow yourself to.
All you need to do
is get to 4000 chips, jump to a 9 player 100/200 blind game that has a few 6 figure players, and wait for premiums and a nice flop...All in! You might want a little more than 4000, but its up to you. Anyway, before you know it, you'll be buying in @ 40k and quadrupling up. You'll also be surprised @ how many times your Top pair with a 9 kicker will do the job in many all in situations. Just be on the look out for aces. Basically, you fold when an ace hits the board unless you have a high kicker...no matter what. Its a sure thing that someone has an ace. These guys go all in with A,3 preflop honestly thinking its a good play, so beware of your KK preflop.
Also, these guys limp in every singly hand, and unless you raise 10k (100/200 blinds), they aren't going away. So, use that to your advantage, and don't let it bust you out. If you raise 2-5k with a pocket pair and everyone limps in, but you miss your set, fold. There will be plenty
of other double, triple, quadruple up opportunities, I promise. Don't try to play the player like you would in a real game because these guys are impossible to read/bluff, and it would be a waste of time. "Don't bluff an idiot" especially if you never have to
. If you get pushed around/ possibly bluffed a few times, so what, let it go. Eventually, they will come to you, so just play the cards and wait for the sure thing.
Theres a liiiiittle more to it, but you'll figure it out.
I seriously advise multi-tabling while doing this. I play 4 tables at a time, and since there was 0 pressure, the playmoney tables proved to be the perfect learning grounds for becoming accustomed to multi-tabling. Confusion, hasty decision making...all gone. Granted, the decisions you make here are childsplay, but I still felt cluttered when I started and I no longer do. Baby steps...
Now, everyday I hit a million, I'll update it here. After starting out with 1,000 chips, eventually buying in at 10,000 and earning 750k Chips in three days, my plan is to accumulate 15 million play chips, and turn them into a starting Bankroll of $150. I should be able to pull this off in under 30 days since I now buy in at 40,000. That will give me 30 Buy-in's for the .25NL tables. I'll finally have weeded out enough donks to lessen the beats and slightly
improve my play, but have enough around help out my BR.
BTW, Phil, no worries man, we'll start up again in a month and I'll be ready for some more coaching.
Feel free to join in!!!
P.S. I have a few in mind, but If anyone could PM me a few trustworthy sites that will buy my chips, I'd appriciate it
