Happy new Year!
December finally went as planned. I'm German, and we Germans are not really know for being the most spontanious guys! Having a strict plan without unforseen stuff happening is exactly what we need to perform well! In December I had 21 days of grinding as we had alot of family birthdays and were gone on vacation between the holidays! That's also the reason why December 2017 Recap is a little late. We only returned yesterday after being stuck in traffic jam for hours. In the November Recap I was struggeling to beat the 7$ Spin & Goes and my maingoal for December was to "proof" that I can beat the limit. I focused alot on improving by visiting all coachings possible and watching alot of learning materials, but as I only had 21 days of grinding I also was aware all of the time that I need to hit the tables quite alot, too. Not watching any Stats/Graph/Summary really helped me to perform strong in the beginning, but during middle of the month "old addictions" came back and I kept watching that stuff over and over again. As a result my graph flattened out alot even tho I didn't really notice a change in my game/gameplan. This still seems to be a mental thing holding me back, but at least I know how to handle it: Just don't look at that sh**t!

Promoted to 15$ Spins!
As a result of my performance I got promoted to play 15$ Spins now! Sadly I did not find the time to play a single one of them yet, but I'm really looking forward getting crushed in the beginning. Getting promoted to 15$ Spins really means alot to me. It is one of the best Christmas gifts a dedicated pokerplayer can imagine. A very big thanks to all the guys and girls that supported me, helped me, taught me or simply just believed in me in the 4th month I am with SpinLegends now! There's nothing that can beat "Best Poker Player Michi" in the longrun anyways!
Event Bankroll 500.98$ (-16.50$)
During the vacation I got bored one evening and played NL25 Fast Forward on Partypoker on my mobile phone and lost my "Bankroll" there.
Get used to the new limit by 1 tabling
To get used to the new limit I will play the first 25 spins only 1 tabling. This ensures that I can show up with my best game possible.
Comfortably 4 tabling in the long run
In the long run I want to be able to grind 4 tables comfortably. But my mind has to get arround losing 300+$ on a single day which I am not sure if I am prepared for. But I think this can only be solved by jumping in the cold water at one point and just deal with the frustration without letting my game be effected. Quite a task for me and I know, that this might take alot of time, but I am willing to put in the hours and frustration required.
Only look at Graphs / ChipEV once every 2 weeks
I've failed to not look at my graph for the complete month in December. And as soon as I "failed" my monthly task I just kept looking at it pretty much all the time. It hurt my game without me activly noticing it. Therefor I have to set up this goal again and hopefully have the mental strenght to suceed this time. Only look at it once every 2 weeks!
