|Cashed in the $50 10k yearly VPP Stellar Rewards thingy. Roll is at $547 now. 1424 VPP so far for August, which technically puts me way behind pace for Supernova, but I'm still well ahead of pace for making Platinum, and I know my point accumulation will accelerate as I move up, since I'll be able to earn more than I cash out. Leaving my FPP bonuses uncashed for now. Using the potential Supernova bonuses as a motivator. Haven't yet decided when to move up to $15+1. In the past I've generally moved up when I have $400, which is very aggressive, since if I lose I can always drop down and get it back in a couple days. I'm thinking about being super-disciplined and waiting until I reach $1k, which should be within a week. Also reduced my tables from 27 to 24. I can just barely do in the 27-30 range, but it's incredibly harrowing. 24 lets me relax enough that I can keep it going all day without feeling like I've been jumped in a back alley after every set.|
Refined (tightened) shoving ranges, particularly in the hijack seat and when there are no antes. Experimented with some different bubble ideas. Overall I'm feeling very good and I think I've recently made a significant jump of improvement in my ability.
General notes: Bubble theory favors shoves as big stack when the stacks are progressively larger behind you (e.g. 8k, 1k, 2k, 2.5k). Theory favors raging aggression with four equal stacks (3-3.5k apiece). Theory frowns on aggression with a large stack and against three near-equal small but not micro stacks, or if they are progressively *smaller* behind you.
Edit: girlfriend is staying at her parents tonight, woohoo! So maybe I'll get in 24 or 48 or more, but first I need to unwind with a few episodes of Weeds.
P.S. Prop 8 meets the equal protection clause; Prop 8 loses. Go go civil rights! Bigots can suck it!
