24 ptBB/100 Sustainable?

I ordered The Poker Mindset from the VIP store last Tuesday and got an email saying "... will ship in 4-6 weeks." It showed up at my door yesterday. I could probably get it cheaper on Amazon but I miss out on the thrill of having it personally delivered like I'm a VIP when I have to walk 150 feet to the mailbox. I'm about 1/4 done already and should probably start doing some book reviews on here sometime.

I fired up a bunch of 100NL FR last night and decided I was going to play 1 hour/1k hands and try to put into practice the authors' suggestions on desensitizing yourself to money. Worked out pretty well I think! I was making river valuebets where I'd normally check behind, turn value shoves on scary boards against fishy players, and all sorts of valuebets that I would normally miss at 100NL+.

Results are looking good and if I attribute all of my success to the 1/4 of the book that I've read so far: $483 / ($24.95 * 0.25) = what I've read has paid for itself 77 times over. I better read the rest of it today if that's the case =)


  1. I must have missed the bits that obviously worked for you. good book though. time to reread.

  2. yeah 24 ptbb/100 is sustainable if you quit playing right now. :)

  3. I'm thinking of getting the book, looked at it on Amazon.

    You reckon it's worth the cash?
