1 month down, 11 to go

Just wrapped up January on a high note today. I had the highest VPP total for 1 continuous session of my career today, getting 20,861 VPPs. I started the session at about 2:30 in the afternoon and finished my last game just after 9:30, about a 7 hour session. It's really long for me since I don't stop registering until an hour before I want to play my last game. For some reason, an explosion of $225 9/10 mans ran today, and that is why my VPP rate got close to 3k/hour.

For the month, I got 398,682 VPPs (including the 50k WSOP bonus) which easily beats my previous monthly best, which was somewhere around 266k. If I hadn't taken those 7 days off for PCA, I might have been able to get 500k VPP for the month. Anyways, I look forward to continuing this pace for the next month, altho it's only 28 days long!

For some fun, here's a nice screenshot I took of a $225 SNG bubble today. Pretty good spot to be in. And I folded this hand, although many would shove and it wouldn't be too bad.

And finally, here's an interesting hand that came up during my session in a $555 9man SNG. I try to copy/paste these fun ones into my notepad to look at after my sessions. I don't usually play AQs like this preflop, but it's not really that profitable to raise UTG at a full table in a nosebleed game anyway. He clearly was an unknown.

Dealt to azntracker [Qd Ad]
azntracker: calls 20
aakkari: folds
Proudflop: folds
qanton: raises 20 to 40

*** TURN *** [Qs 2d 3d] [8d]
azntracker: bets 100
qanton: raises 100 to 200
azntracker: raises 850 to 1050 and is all-in
qanton: calls 850
*** RIVER *** [Qs 2d 3d 8d] [7c]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
azntracker: shows [Qd Ad] (a flush, Ace high)
qanton: shows [5h 4d] (high card Queen)

how many hours did u play for 400k vpp ?

Poopy said...

Absolutely incredible job. I am trying to get crazy vpps also (finished month with 300K).

It is truly unbelievable how many vpps you can earn in an hour. If I went back...I wish I learned SNGS instead of cash so I can make vpps like you!

GL on the rest of the year, you are doing great!

I'd say I averaged 6 hours a day for 24 playing days, so about 150 hours (+/- 15) if I had to guesstimate.

And Poopy, thank you for the kind words. Best of luck to yourself too! And your VPP chase!
