plo diary of a trash reg

The purpose of the thread:

1) Public accountability
2) Finding a hard working group of people
3) I am interested in a mentor who is playing actively and winning 25/50+. I am willing to do a multi year deal if the value I get will compensate me. I contacted some guys who are playing that high but no one was willing to work with me. I do understand it though, who wants to work with some trash reg at plo50?
4) Understand the game and enjoy the process

For people who dont know me

I used to play sngs for a very long time, switched to mtts due to lack of action in higher stakes. I grinded mtts for 4.5 years but the last 1.5-2 years I didn’t enjoyed grinding. It was a combination of not taking any breaks either from studying or playing, having no freedom and getting in a big(normal for the stakes) downswing loading 10ks while taking the decision to clear it in lower stakes, dropping the highest stakes

On the positive side, I worked with some great people and I met people in live trips which I consider friends and we keep good relationship until this day. The good memories significantly outweight the bad ones which are coming from the standard downswing in the 10ks

I stopped my mtt grind around a year ago and I ‘’lost’’ 2 months because a family member was in and out from hospital due to some backbone injuries. Then I decided to give plo a shot without knowing the rules, but I wanted to try whether I like the game or not. I found a group which I studied 6m cash for a month but I felt I didn’t have any progress. As a beginner I needed a different way of thinking to break down the game and I decided to leave the group

Someone suggested to me learning hu plo and he was certain of having a clear plan to teach me if I am willing to give the format a shot. I said to myself I will give 5 months and whatever happens. Unfortunately this person wasn’t helpful and while I worked a ton on my game alone, I felt my progress wasn't equal to the hours I studied while the coach didn’t really have any clear plan to teach and the sessions were all over the place. I felt I wasted another 5 months in a format that it is very difficult to put volume (I was told the opposite) while playing more than 1 table was leading to constant mistakes

That was the first time I failed in something and it is very difficult to pick myself up. I put a lot of hours and I still consider I am completely trash. I am in a very bad state of mind the last two months, I am not gonna grind hu plo more and I feel whatever option I will choose between 6m plo or 6m nl cash I will fail. I started working with a mindset coach and a cbt psychologist. I don’t know who will be more helpful but I will keep you posted

This limbo state of mind is slowly fading away, I am leaning into playing 6m plo cash since plo is the most fun game I have ever played. Even though i know i am a trash reg i never had more fun in a poker game than grinding hu plo. I did some plo trainer work, obviously a ton of mistakes but I am willing to give it a shot. I will give myself until end of August 2024 to play some reasonable stakes with some reasonable winrate. I will be fine with something like plo200 at 3bb/100+ prerakeback. If I fail I will go back to mtts

I wasn’t planning to create a thread but I feel disgusted with myself wasting 2 months doing absolutely nothing with my life.

I do have some daily goals but I will not write the specifics here just the categories

Poker daily goals: 8 categories / 30 days = total 240
Fitness daily goals: 2 categories / 30 days = total 60
Mental daily goals: 4 categories / 30 days = total 120

P.S. I have some very bad behaviour regarding my chatting skills when grinding. I am trying actively to fix them. If you are offended....don't

Bankroll 10k for plo50
Shot at plo100 when bankroll 14k
Shot at plo200 when bankroll 19k
Shot at plo500 when bankroll 38k

Each shot will be a 3-5 buy in stop loss
