I earned 19.5k Vpps which equates to approx 68k Fpp's and a nice little $1100 added to my total earnings this month.
Total for the month of $3,800.
The month started off really well, even though my attempt at 200nl was short and not very sweet. Then I went on a 30k hand break even stretch, which was pretty frustrating to say the least. The root cause imo, was seeing too many showdowns. I had a SD % of approx 33%, which is probably a little high, I usually maintain a level of 27%.
Played in a few donkaments this month as well. Did well in last weekends Supernova Freerolls, cashing for approx $115. Busted out very frustratingly in the $55 buy in, $80k GTD just on the bubble with KK losing to AK, which seriously pissed me off, I could have easily folded ITM, but meh! Then I played in tonights $11 rebuy. Seriously, I didn't have one f'kin hand in 2 hours! No wonder I hate donkaments.
For some time now I have been interested in Supernova Elite. To achieve SNE, you need approx 83k Vpps/month. So at 100nl you would need to play approx 200k hands a month, at 200nl approx 150k hands/month.
Now that's a tall order, especially as I have a full time job. So I just want to try it out and see how I can handle the volume of hands, the swings and the time management of working/playing. At least then I'll be in a better position to make a decision once and for all about SNE. So October I hope to be playing around 5k hands/day at 100nl FR, of course my primary concern is my BR, so if it all goes tits up, then I will abandon the attempt.
I have been speaking to Zach about this on AIM recently, and I think he may have a trial run at it this month as well, so it should be interesting to say the least. GL all!
I started playing poker in summer of 2006. I made several unsuccessful deposits on Ladbrokes, PartyPoker, Pokerstars and just about every other poker site going. Then I discovered Cardschat and 2+2 poker forums and started to actually learn poker theory.
In Spring 2007, I made a $200 deposit on Pokerstars with my new found knowledge, I thought I had a chance at this game. I played the $10 sng's and quickly increased my balance upto $1500.
After realising my future belonged with cash games, which took quite some time to make the transition, I began playing them seriously at the start of 2008.
Hence this blog, 'Champagne Supernova'. 2008 was always going to be a Supernova year, and it was a great year. Lets hope 2009, will be an amazing one!
