I think I'm finally realizing what smokkee used to talk about when he said that SNGs were just stealing his soul and that he didn't want to play them anymore. I haven't been able to get myself to grind SNGs in the last couple of days. I've only done about 180 total single-table SNGs since my last entry.
The weirdest thing is that I did pretty well. I averaged over a 10% ROI during that time and I still can't make myself play them. I think I'm going to move back to grinding cash games like I used to. Just playing 9-12 tables of full ring, the decisions were just much more interesting and I didn't have to deal with the runs (both up and down) that I hit playing SNGs.
The swings are just sick, something cashing in 2 of 12 and sometimes cashing in 8 of 12. It's something that drives me nuts as someone that only plays pretty short sessions.
So I'm going back to cash, I destroyed the 25NL level when that was what I was exclusively playing. I beat it for something like 21BB/100 over 15k+ hands. Then I moved up to 50NL and tweaked my game when I didn't need to and that destroyed my results and made me give up cash for a while.
So my goal is to play 20k hands by the end of the month because that should give me a good sample size to see how I'm doing and it should just get me over the mark to hit platinum star for the month, which would keep me on pace to hit supernova at some point this year.
So basically about 1.5-2 hours of play per day average for the rest of the month. That shouldn't be too hard, hopefully I actually end up making money by the end.
