The ramblings and mumblings of a wannabe poker pro

Daily Grind

I’ve come up with a rough outline of a schedule I’ll like to base my play around, for when I clear my bonus. I’ve never had a schedule for my play before, so I’ll appreciate it if anyone could give me some feedback on it please?

I’ve started the day off with the heads-up matches, as they are relatively simple at these levels, and are a quick way to get me settled back into the game. I’ll then sit in a regular tournament, either 9 or 18 handed, to ease me into the longer sessions coming up, I’ll follow this with a 30 minute break.

I will then sit in my first NL cash game sessions, multi-tabling between 2 and 4 1c/2c tables, and I’ll finish the session when I have completed 200 hands, unless a specific situation dictates I should stay longer.

After a break I will then sit in a single 1c/2c table, for another 200 hands, and after another short break I will follow this up with one more. To finish the day I will throw in another 9 or 18 person sit-n-go, or occasionally do a freeroll or larger tournament instead.

I have no ideas on times, as I can find myself starting the day at any time and ending it at any time, but I do want to put some structure into my daily poker play to ensure I’m playing enough to try and earn some money and advance my play. I don’t have any funds on another account yet, so all of the games will be played on Poker Stars.

Here’s the outline :

# $2 Heads-Up sit-n-go
>>> if lost, or if on tilt, take a quick 5 minute break

# $2 Heads-Up sit-n-go
>>> 10 minute break

# 9 or 18 handed, $1 sit-n-go
>>> 30 minute break

# 1/2c NL cash game session 1, multi-tabling 2 – 4 tables, up to 200 hands per table
>>> break

# 1/2c NL cash game session 2, up to 200 hands, single table
>>> break

# 1/2c NL cash game session 3, up to 200 hands, single table
>>> break

# 9 or 18 handed, $1 sit-n-go
>>> or a scheduled tournament or freeroll
