So last night I logged a full ring session at 10c/25c blinds to work out how many VPPS I can clear. This game type is meant to be my best game but I always shy away as when I play I do the maximum tables allowed (24) and it requires my full attention, unfortunately with 4 kids and one being 7 months old I rarely get any time where I don’t have to have at least one eye/hand/backhand available to deal with them!
Anyway the session went pretty well I was aiming for 1000 hands and reached the target in about 50 minutes earning 106 VPPS,for comparison I would say the extra 10 minutes for the hour would of got me upto about 125 VPPS also for longer sessions the hourly would be even higher as it takes a good 15 minutes to get 24 tables up and actually playing as I always sit out for big blind.
results wise a winning session :-)
Last up for my experiment is heads-up this will easily have the worst VPP per hour but of course the win-rate should be the highest especially with all the bum-hunting I do! I’m planning to do 500 hands in bits and pieces over the next few days.
Once I have all my stats I will then work out my plan and target for 2011, my initial thoughts are $5k for the year not sure if this is to high? Currently im $500 up for the month on very low volumes so maybe its ok!
If I don’t post before xmas make sure you all have a good one and put your families before poker!!
