This grinding month ends early for me as I am going on 2 vacations for the next 2 weeks! It has been a great month with alot of ups and barly any downs.
One of the highlights was the attempt to win The Daily Expresso Challenge on Winamax.
I was 4 tabling 17:30 hours that day, which resulted in 573 Spins but sadly only was good enough for the 4th place and 35€ from the leaderboard.
During the last hour I added up to 8 tables as an attempt to save the 3rd place. But I was an easy victim for a guy 12 tabling. He overtook me rather easily.
Adding up more tables probably would’ve been more -EV so I decided to just letting him pass.
Other than that I implemented some kind of Stop-Loss feature to my daily grinding routine that should prevent me from showing up with my B- or C-game too often on the 25€ limit. While this probably isn’t the best way to approach a new Limit it still worked super well for me.
When I was playing on 10€ I usually added a table or two, to work on my multi tabling ability meanwhile.
I will sum up the month now, before I’m going to leave to collect some seashells!

Even though I was in makeup at the start of June and didn’t expect to gather additional funds any time soon I have 7.5 buyins save for the trip right at this point!
Vacation Time + New Job
Yet again I am visiting my family starting tomorrow and right after that I am going to fly to Crete with my girlfriend to relax some more.
I will be back at the tables on the 15th of July, but as I’m going to start a new job right after my vacation time I probably will have to get used to the new situation and can’t spend to many hours on poker meanwhile.
So very low volume July for sure.
Goals achieved that were set for June
- Maingoal: Stay on 25€ Spins after 500 spins (achieved)
- play 750 spins to be eligible to take part in a coaching Program within Smart Spin (achieved)
- 30 study hours (achieved)
- keep the diet rolling! (achieved)
- at least 25 days of playing poker (achieved)
- keep on working towards getting a healthy mindset for Expressos/Spins (achieved)
Goals for July
The Maingoal for July is to play 500 spins which is the minimum one has to play within Smart Spin. I could ask for some time off the contract, which shouldnt be a big problem, but I think I can still achieve that number easily (maybe just throw in a leaderboard challenge again on the weekend?!)
- 7 study hours
- relax alot and recharge energy
- keep as clean of a diet as possible during vacation
- finish the work on the balcony
- get used to new job
