Pokerwolf1's Diary - 10k Poker Profit Mega Thread

Recommended Posts

Right. I need motivation and I've just noticed that Sky's UKOPS starts tomorrow. As a rule Sky isn't really giving me much motivation to play there but I thought it was worth trying to qualify for a few of these. SO THIS THREAD LIVES AGAIN!

Also, I have bankroll on Unibet. So although sharkscope won't track it for me I will put a summary at the end of the day in here and add it to the overall profit / loss of this thread. 

I am only planning to play sats in both clients, unless I unlock tokens for some other format, and the target tournaments those sats feed into.

As a side note - is anyone going to Unibet tour Manchester from here? Brighton is this weekend but I can't make it so going Manchester instead.

Day 55 - £1892 Profit

Decent day on both sites. Qualified for nightly major on Sky for £1.60 but went out just before the money. Managed to take 2 heads for £25, though. Won a buyin for a £22 UKOPS event tomorrow. Hope to play most of the day tomorrow.

Sky Profit = £1836

Won a €100 UK Tour final ticket on Unibet. Got two of them now. I won't class the other one I have among this profit and similarly if I win a UK Tour seat with it I won't count that either. If I win a UK tour seat with the token I just won though I will add €280 expenses money to the profit (500 package -220 seat). 

Unibet profit = €63.48 (£56)

Total Profit £1846

Thanks @Danshot. Hope I can encourage a few more to put some blogs up. Bit of a mare yesterday. Had to withdraw my 2 UKOPS entries as I ended up doing something last night. I am going to move them to tomorrow but I played quite a few sats in the afternoon and failed them all, bubbling two in typical horrific fashion. Profit -£47

Over on Unibet things were pretty dull. €13 of sats entered, €14 of seats won lol. Profit +€1

Not planning on anything today but looking forward to a full evening tomorrow. Will be playing at least 2 UKOPS hopefully 3. And also over on Unibet a UK tour final (the one not included in this profit ladder) along with a couple other bigger tournaments.

One of my (semi) bubbles yesterday was interesting. Should I call?

Blinds 300/600

Player 1 - 5k chips

Player 2 - 6k chips

Player 3 - 6k chips

Me - 7k chips

2 seats to £22 tournament and 3rd gets £15.

I raise UTG to 1200 with QQ. Player 1 on button shoves. Other two fold. ICM and shove fold ranges have never been my strongest point and with this being a satellite... I'm guessing mathematically I should call seeing as I am only in terrible shape against AA and KK, and 50/50 against AK? Good position for a 3 bet steal so he could be very weak or rag ace? Strange to think about folding QQ in this spot but I can't help but think folding gives me a better chance of winning a seat than calling?

With the tight stacks I believe that calling is absolutely the correct play , as chances are your not going to get a hand that strong again before finding yourself with a really short stack. 

I don't mind shoving preflop with some strong pairs like Jacks & Queens in this spot has every pick up of the blinds is massive at this stage of the tournament and even if we get called we have good equity vs our opponents calling ranges honestly I probably shove Kings as well to be fair. And mix it up with Aces between min-raising and shoving.

Sadly no update tonight. Didn't feel I was mentally fit to play tonight and as such I have withdrawn my UKOPS entries and will play my tickets another day. I feel like I would have been playing for the sake of it and defo not bringing an A game.

Day 57 and 58

Total buyins = €122. Total Cash = €218.06

Lost my first UK tour final ticket so only one I have left now is the one included in this profit. Fairly happy with how the 2 days went in terms of my play. Came 2nd in a decent tournament on Unibet for a €154 cash but was disappointed not to grab the win. Fingers crossed will get a lot of play in this week and feeling motivated to do so. 

Total profit = £1931

Day 60 Profit = £1871

Total buyins - €102 Total cashes - €41.82

Disaster day. Nothing went right and closest I came was to 3 off the bubble of a €500 GTD only for SB to raise my BB for the 10th time and me to fire back allin with AQ and get snapped by QQ... sigh. 

This profit could drop big tonight if I don't do well. Planning to play my other UK final sat so fingers crossed I'm adding a couple hundred to it rather than taking it away!

Day 61 Profit = £2096

Won me another UK tour seat! :D Expenses only have been added to the profit. Really pleased with the way I played overall and hope to expand on these posts a lot more from next week. Going to be playing for the rest of the night now and have yet another UK tour final seat so fingers crossed I get that one too!

Day 62 = £2419

What a couple of days! I won another UK tour ticket and was unfortunate to come 4th in one of the sunday mini majors for another £180 when I raised the blinds from the button with A10, A5 pushed on me and rivered a 5.

Not just winning but also playing really well. Defo back on track and heading in the right direction. As mentioned I plan to expand these posts and put a bit more info from next week but for now I'm going to go have a celebratory whisky and chill!

Day 63 = £2473

Tournament buyins = €139 

Tournament Cashes = €199.28

Didn't feel like I played well yesterday and if it wasn't for picking up another €100 final ticket I'd have been down. A bubble in an Omaha event to end the night left me feeling a bit sour but I used what little discipline I have an let it go. I wanted to put an interesting hand up for discussion but there wasn't really anything that happened which I think would generate much discussion.

I've been thinking along the lines of what I want to achieve next year. I'm finding it fairly easy to qualify for live events through Unibet but only the small ones. My big goal would be to qualify for one of their £1000 events. Never played a live tournament that big before. 

I want my profit loss sheet to be more tailored towards satellites so that's something I want to work on. I know I am massively +ev in some sats such as these UK tour ones (although small sample size) but I suspect that some of the other sats I take part in the structure is such that I would be better off throwing money into something else.

I want to hit 100k points every quarter on Unibet. This would involve an average of £100 of tournament buyins a day... My goal would be to achieve this while still keeping the family life balance in check as at the end of the day that's the most important thing. 

I have an ambition to set up a small stable of players who I think would be able to beast sats such as these UK tour one's too and take shares in their target events. Something which would need a lot more looking into, though. No experience of that sort of thing and if anyone has any advice I would be much appreciative.

Anyone doing well against this years goals or got plans for next year?

Day 64 & 65 = £2599

Total buyins = €149

Total Cashes = €290.06

Notable Cashes:

5 freezeout: 2nd for 23.71

5 freezeout: 3rd for 27.97

5 Rebuy (1addon): 5th for 45.94

10 freezeout: 2nd for 48.88

10 freezeout: 3rd for 43.20

10 Nightly Major: 10th for 27.50

10 PLO: 5th for 27.64

Another good couple of days but you will understand my disappointment and frustration when you look at the notable cashes. So many near misses and I could not, despite all the will in the world, close any of the tournaments out. The nightly major was a sick KK vs QQ AIPF for a 2x average stack. Similarly I bubbled the nightly mini major when I was forced to stack off 50BB's with AA after someone pushed their SB on me with AQ (board 9 10 J J K). 

I will be going over my hands for these final tables. I don't remember doing anything glaring which was bad but it never hurts to have a look back. I've mentioned it a few times now recently but I really do feel I'm playing my best poker all year and I think over the last week or so it's been reflected in my results. Long may it continue and I finally feel again that I'm stepping in the right direction towards this 10k target. 

I expect I will continue the grind tomorrow night and take Saturday off ready for a full days grind on Sunday.

Day 67 & 68 = £2499

Total Buyins = €344

Total Cashes = €231.42

Notable Cashes:

2 PLO: 5th for 7.04

4 Sat: 1st for 25

5 Freezeout: 9th for 14.99

25 Sat: 1st for 100

It really hurts to run bad on a Sunday... Such is my desperation I am including sat wins in the notable cashes! Nothing went right. I had a sick 30 second spell where my AA was beaten by KK 1 outer in 2 rooms at the same time, and I bubbled a UK Final seat. 

My frustration eventually turned to bad play and this resulted in entering lots of things just for the sake of it which caused disappointment in myself... Still, today is another day and let's see what tonight brings. If I won the sat with the 100 ticket I have again we will be looking at a very different profit margin as I will be requesting to change the entire seat up for cash.

I am planning to join in the community league next month if it runs. I haven't played on stars for agessssssss but anything I can do to get people on the forum more involved would be good.

Great stuff  Pokerwolf :) Best of luck for 2018 and hopefully see you at a Live event one day :) I always post up on forum if I am going to a Live event to see if anyone else going :)  My plan is to hit a 4 figure profit but very tough as hard to put volume in as family life.


Got my numbers muddled :)) Its a 5 figure profit I aim for! 2017 profit was close to £2.6k and a package to Morocco next week! Limited volume but family life is 1st priority :)  Hopefully I can bring the trophy home and achieve my target!
