That's more like it!

I have had a really good couple of days after that bad start. I feel a lot more confident in my game after doing a bit of study, switching it up a bit, and I seem to be doing well as a result. I also think I was trying to play too many tables the first few days, and pretty much eliminating the $15+1 18-mans over the last couple of days seems like a wise move. For the little bit of rake they add, they command too much attention away from my more important tables. However I'm sure there has been a fair amount of run good as well.

I'm coping with the grind fairly well. I have been putting in 7-10 hour days every day since New Years Day. In doing so I have eeked my way ahead of SNE pace, which is going to be important for when I want to take days off.

A few people have commented on the Progress Bar I have at the top left hand side of the blog, wanting to use it for their own targets and such. Check out this page if you are interested in one for your blog, that's where I got the info to do mine from...

Just starting reading your blog cool stuff :) One of your posts said you weren't sure if anyone else was going for sne with 18 mans as their main game... I know Markschillin is going for sne playing mainly 18 mans as well this year. You said Simakos made it last year he played a ton of mtt sng's many high buyin 18 mans is what got him to sne I believe. I remember looking him up and seeing he was pretty much breakeven in around 40,000 18 mans, and at least 60k in 45-180 mans. So you can do it you seem to be doing pretty well thus far! Good Luck
