March 2018 Recap

Happy chaotic Eastern! 
And welcome to my March 2018 Recap

Bailey Ostern

As I caught the flue in the beginning of March I had to cancel the
"4000 Spins in 31 days challenge". Therefor I changed my approach to 
Spins a little. I only 2 tabled most of March and focused more on 
making the correct plays.

I still feel like I'm running terrible EV wise.
Don't get me wrong, I made alot more money than I should, but the situation
I'm finding myself in alot of the times just seems surreal to me
and I'm losing alot of ChipEV as result.

But still I'm looking bright into the future and hope to stay on track to 
be promoted to 15$ Spins soon again!

That's the light at the end of the tunnel that keeps me going for now.
Even tho I feel like I'm running bad EV wise, still being on track to be
promoted after another 1.5k Spins makes the suffering acceptable.

Now let's take a look at some shiny Graphs and Numbers!
Real 4 Digits incoming this time!

Pretty happy about my dedication for now.
Another highlight of the month was to win my first 25x multiplier!
It felt so great! But I guess after having ~260 chipEV overall in all 25x
it got time to bink one!

Sadly my mindset has a few scratches right now. I'm complaining alot and 
whining pretty much everywhere.
This is the bad side I'm always trying to hide, but it doesnt work like
that all the time!
Hope to get it a little better under control again in the future!
I'm very sorry to every single person who ever had to read my whines or 
I promise to be a better person in the future!

Sadly I had 3 horrible last days of grinding and my ChipEV dropped from 70
to 60 which still hurts a lot at this point.

I need some distance to poker and therefor decided to not play much during
Eastern! Relax and sleep alot is the plan. And spend some time with the

Sleeping ferret


Future Approach


No Carb Diet + Working Out

As I have abodybuilder past and low to no Carb diets always worked best 
for me, my girlfriend and I decided to go with the anabolic diet again.
This means less than 30g of carbohydrates per day during the week, 
and on weekends refeeds with alot of carbohydrates. (pizza pasta kebab 
burgers! everything is allowed!)

Less insulin spikes during the week are also great for my focus in poker!

Diet + Workouts will boost my body + mindset alot!

Can't even walk, but going to the gym already :D
Gimme that Whey Protein for my muscles!
