Grinding that Malta life

After quite a long time since my last post here i guess it's time to give some sort of update.

Prolly writing this post together over teh next couple of hours whenever i have time so teh redline and some structure might be lacking but i'm not writing a novel here so that should be fine.

Kinda hard where to start since one month is already gone since i arrived. Anyways, i think i stopped last time shortly before i went on the flathunt and it went quite smooth. Found the perfect bachelor pad for me directly on first day looking which is situated in Sliema, has 2 bedrooms, nice livingarea, seaview and small balcony. I have shitloads of restaurants around so that i can leave cooking to other people who are better than me at it most of teh time. All in all i'm quite satisfied so far and basically teh first time in ages that i really live alone (even though i will get alot of visitors over the summer months...)
Here some pictures because they tend to say moar then words:






Have this place rented and paid now for a year even though i doubt i will stay the entire time but who knows what happens.

Regarding poker it is still going mediocre at best. Year is still pretty terrible so far. I'm obviously up some money but still nothing too meaningful. In the end it could be worse though i guess. Cannot really provide a graph bc i haven't checked results basically since i came back to Malta and it's kinda pointless to do so bc it only will affect my game. Wanted to grind alot in may which worked out moar or less until i tried starting my laptop one day only to realize that my SSD was fucked. Took about a week to get it fixed and during teh week i was forced to play on a backup which wasn't going very well either, neither in case of volume, nor in case of winnings but what can you do. Furthermoar that was another 600Euros down teh drain which i could add to all teh expenses i had lately but still better that this happend here compared to in Bali...

My car was fucked as well when i came back, was overheating bc of a stuck fan which is now fixed but i got it to the inspection just for the case if there is anything else. That's not going to be supercheap either but after this i think i finally have sorted everything out and should not have any major expenses during the next couple of months which is good and gives some peace of mind.

I furthermore started mixing in some good NL100 games lately simply bc of the fact that i don't really get enough tables running at 200+ alot of the time and if i only play something like 7 or 8 tables i get insanely bored fairly quickly and start doing other shit in the meanwhile which is not good. NL200 is still kinda allright with alot of fish but regs are just insanely good these days and nobody makes many mistakes anymoar and if somebody does those mistakes tend to be aggressive ones which are by far not as bad as passive mistakes. I would assume games getting a little better teh next weeks bc of Pokerstars 100billion hand promotion so that my plan is to play a decent amount especially during that time.

Another big thing i'm part of atm is a pokerdocumentation they shooting in Malta where they film 3 different players and their lifestyles. Seems to be a pretty ambitious project and gonna be quite interesting to see the final outcome of it: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pokergodstv/364319947002879?ref=ts&fref=ts

Partywise i haven't been out too much since i'm back but when i was it was ALL IN for teh most part. Hangovers i experience here so far are def. worse than teh bali or australian ones bc there are just too many drinks, everything costs shit, everybody is offering you drinks etc. Luxury problems i guess :)

In regards to gym it's still going pretty well and even though i'm not doing too much atm besides eating good my body seems to stay in shape. Haven't done a single day cardio so far since i'm back but don't gain any moar weight which is fortunate.

That's it for now and i hope i update a little sooner next time. Usual party shots for the end, have a good june everybody...

  1. You still playin FR tbls? Cant believe it is boring to play 7-8 tbls ;)
    I am still impressed how you can do about 150k hands a month.
    I play fulltime as well (slightly higher @400/600) and cant manage to play much more than 50k a month.
    Also impressed by your motivation in grinding while travelling.
    Keep the blog up to date plz :)
