Yet another short but busy month comes to an end. I had 21 grinding days and tried to use them in the best way possible even though I had to overcome a lot of distractions yet again. As I mentioned in my last months recap already, my stable Smart Spin is still in transitionphase from old management/coaches to the new ones replacing them. While I personally had to argue about some stuff for quite some time before it got implemented I think we are on a good track now and my main focus can shift towards only improving and grinding again! Bright future ahead! Pokerwise I tried to show up with my A-Game as often as possible and studied every single day as it was planned. (within the 21 grinding days) I feel like I am getting more confident again even though the results aren't where I want them to be yet. While I didn't manage to play as much as I wanted to I still achieved the maingoals for the month: Get into a good position to move up soon and maintain the Platinum status. For those of you who are wondering why April only had 21 grinding days: I was busy hunting the Easter bunny and enjoyed spending some quality time with my family!
Really looking forward to the small vacation that is going to happen in the beginning of May with my brother and a few friends.
I will be back at the poker tables at the 8th of May!

Bankroll for March Madness 2020 in Vegas
It is a fix plan to fly to vegas for 9 nights in March 2020 with my pokerbuddy/studypartner. We are going to grind some Cashgames while March Madness is running (super juicy games). This trip + Live Cashgame Bankroll will be payed purely by pokerincome. While I can afford the flight and hotel already I will use the 10 months left to build a (hopefully) healthy Bankroll.
Goals achieved that were set for April
- play 1000 Expressos (failed)
- 40 study hours (done)
- 10 workouts (failed)
- 14 low carb days (failed)
- play 20 days of poker (done)
- visit family (done + running)
- get a healthy mindset for Expressos/Spins again (under process)
Goals for May
The two absolute maingoals for May are to keep the total ChipEV on my complete 10€ Expressos sample above 65 and grind in 75 more EV-Buyins (not necessary in May only) to move up a stake! Another important goal is to keep the pace (rather improve it in June) on producing miles to get up to a yearly status for additional rakeback in the future (5-6 more months).
- hold Platinum status (roundabout 900 Expressos)
- 30 study hours
- get back to a healthy diet and start working out again after vacation!
- 22 days of playing poker
- keep on working towards getting a healthy mindset for Expressos/Spins
