February 2018 Recap

On 12th February I was able to start the grind again.
Since then I am investing more than ever to improve as a player.
Every day, I grinded 5-6 hours at least and studied 2 additional hours.

As I'm in the middle of a "4k Spins in 31 days challenge" it often occured
that I had no motivation at all to grind, but had to sit down and do the
job. I guess this is what it looks like for people doing this as a

Edit: As I caught a flu the challenge was canceled 4th March.

Grinding every day without seeing anything good happen can be so life
draining, but I am proud that I could still come up with the hours
required so far and I am planning to continue and suceed in the challenge!

Let's take a look at the numbers!

Running horrible. 111 buyins under ev only for this year (2 months) only.
Starting to lose faith in my own abilities.
Not that one would lose faith being behind EV that much, but also the
other factors, like ChipEV just keeps dropping all the time.

I'm telling myself all the time that I can't do more than grind and study
consistenetly every day. That's all I can do.

I'm not a better player than I am, and I think I am only doing everything
possible to improve. Time will tell.

Trying to stop being a lame ferret and be a shark instead!

Future Approach


Use Trello and be more organized

Starting now I am going to track everything important to me in Trello.
Write down every day, what I would like to accomplish and mark
it in the end of the day as done or not and suffer the punishment!
