Let’s start this blogupdate with a little shocker:
On my vacations I had a lot of time to think about my approach towards poker, I just had the best month of my Spin career so it was the perfect time to make a big decision, and here it is.
I will focus more time on playing and studying multi table tournaments in the future!
This does not mean that I am giving up on Spins/Expressos, I for sure will continue to grind them same as I will continue to update this blog.
Actually it’s a good thing for the blog as I will split my recaps.
From now on I will post about my MTT career in the middle of the month (first time probably around 18th of August) and at the end of the month I will write about my Spin and Go/Expresso career (as usual).
I will try to keep it close to 50/50 between Spins and MTTs.
Probably all the weekend and one day during the week after work MTTs and the rest of the days Spins.
If you wonder why I made this decision, I did it mainly because I enjoy playing MTTs quite alot and I want to be prepared for the future.
For now Spins are still the most profitable format out there, but I don’t really like the following recent developments:
- Partypoker banning HUDs
- Winamax introducing Nitro Expressos
- Pokerstars introducing 6+ Spins and adding promotional spins with higher rake like every other day
I do not think spins aren’t beatable anymore and it is still rather easy to make a good side income! Sometimes it just does feel a lot like an additional job though while mtts are so much fun to play.
Back to poker though, as mentioned already I went on vacations and only returned to the tables at the 17th of July, therefore the volume kinda sucks!
