Lost my notepad for the exact stats of the last session I played (yesterday), but played around 15 and lost about 50e. Ran pretty dirt in everything really. I think SnGs are second only to MTTs for the worst things to run bad in. Going from 12 tables to 6 in 5 minutes is so depressing its untrue lol.

Playing an MTT session atm. Started well, long may it continue till we have 5 figs in accounts everywhere Cheesy.

Btw, question for the grammar nazi's out there. Is it minuite or minute? I always thought there was an second i in there but computer keeps telling me I typo'd. Surely minute is "my-nute", ie very small?

You dont use HEM or PT?

minute: 

Noun
    A period of time equal to sixty seconds or a sixtieth of an hour.
    A summarized record of the proceedings at a meeting.

Adjective
Extremely small: "a minute dealer error as JK exposed the entire deck on the river, with a player still thinking about calling the all-in shove".

I've said I want to put a real effort in and make it by playing pro by December, so small goals is probably a good way to go about it.

What's your plan for this Jamie? Both in terms of your road to get there between now and December, and what you will be playing when you go full time?

The one thing I do actually dislike about the sites I'm playing is that there is NO traffic early in a morning. Its just me, sat with 10 registered tables, along with 1 other guy registered for a single one. Fantastic lol.

I've woken up at 5am for the past week or so (which is incredibly annoying and draining). My sleep pattern is really really messed up atm and its starting to take a toll. Really need to give myself a kick and sleep properly for a few days before I end up in a barrier somewhere between J27 and J26 of the M1. I actually finished early yesterday and was really up for playing. Nope, fell asleep by about 9pm.

Ah well, will probably just play some Call of Duty instead. I cant win money at that and it makes me want to throw things. Seems alot like poker!

Doesn't a site like 888 have traffic for that time of the morning??

Honestly Neil, I'm not completely sure lol. Atm, my plan is to save up a 50/1 roll to play deep casino games. Obviously will still be grinding online while saving, so might get lucky and bink enough to give me a comfortable start. I would 100% keep my job if I was to start grinding 50/1, because I do love it, but its nice to have a safety net.

Wrt what, fingers crossed online MTTs (just more volume), live cash. I basically want to put a lot of effort into my game this year. Sweat sessions, coaching, talking with friends etc is obv gonna be a big help, but the biggest thing for me is volume and confidence.

No I dont use any tracking software atm, something I really feel like I'm starting to need. Will sort that in time.

I havent played SnGs on 888 vegas, they deec in the morning?

Well it probably aint going to happen, unless you really want it to happen, and if you really want it to happen, you should be doing everything in your power to get there.
(BTW I'm not saying that you should be a FT Poker Player, that's a separate subject altogether).

Let's be honest, most people who go full time, have a large slice of luck, or fall into circumstances where it's an obvious choice, and don't set it as an objective which they make happen.
It's not surprising then, that there is a high percentage failure rate, and of the ones that stick at it, quite a lot are under-rolled, or playing staked and surviving rather than living life to the full.

Will catch 10 minutes with you at some point, and have a chat about some of this stuff.

i mean this with the greatest respect as I like you a lot but anybody who isn't using tracking in 2013 should probably not be thinking about becoming a professional in the short term as they is so much that is yet to be discovered, most importantly self analysis.

Thanks alot mate, I really really appreciate it. If I'm honest, I'm sick of trying and failing. I haven't made the best choices in the past which is probably the main reason, but sick of it lol. Will definitely catch you for that chat as soon as I can.

Its not that I cant use it, nor that I dont see the benefits of it, its more getting it lol. £65 is a bit of a chunk and its difficult to justify it to Leanne. Will definitely be the next thing on my agenda.
