*** SUMMARY ***

I play mainly $60/100 9-man (top 3 paid) and 18-man (top 4 paid) sngs now for SNE purposes. Above is example of how frustrating sng life can be (that's bubble boy of 18 man, getting 5th haha on 2 out river). 1st = $400, 2nd = $300, 3rd = $200, 4th = $100, and I got ZERO on this $60 game hahaha not fun.

Gotta have THICK THICK SKIN playing 100-200 sngs a day, u go through many of these wild swings. Yest for example, I started the day down $2k usd overall after few hours, then luckily I started to run better and got my head out of my ass. I ended up profit $2k overall, so $4k upswing from the bottom. $2-4k swings are HUGE when you're mostly running $60 sngs (though 15-20 tables) hahaha hate my life when I bust 5-10 in a row, which happens a lot and I guess is normal at times (variance). :T

914k vpp. I'm going to do this and get a fat $25k bonus at 1 mill vpp (determined to finish!). Next year will be much more smooth with the 5x multiplier. I'm gonna use my pts for more live packages, etc. Read another SNE player's blog/efforts, I got pretty motivated to keep this up. I think I will pursue SNE next yr for sure now. It's such a waste to get it and not maintain it. The bonuses are pretty damn good. My friend ariolis30 got SNE 3 straight yrs and was able to save $200k+ usd for himself in savings playing $100 NLHE. LOL which is more than a lot of friends I know (good old hard effin' work!).
