My Bestest Day Ever!

I know that in my last post I wished you happy holidays and the truth is I wasn't planning on making another post before Christmas but I think that in this case a post is imperative!

First of all, calm down all you grammar maniacs, I know that "bestest" is incorrect but it sounds nice to me! Especially for today that "best" seemed to not be enough...

I've made quite a few posts before regarding my best and worst days in terms of results and my plan is to keep making them every time I break the record. As you have probably guessed by now, I have a new record for my best day and this time I don't think I'll be able to break it anytime soon. Without further ado, here's today's graph:

This is my prettiest graph so far! You can see that towards the end the road got a little bumpy, but oh well! I can't complain! :D

At the highest point of the graph I was up $7.3k which seems hard to believe. Even the final result of $5.936 is unreal. I keep staring at the graph and try to fit it in my head that it's my own graph I'm looking and not someone else's! Lol! :P

Not only does this break the record of money earned in a day (it's even better than my MTT finish!), but it's also a new record in terms of buy-ins which I actually find a lot more important. So, dividing the profit by the average buy-in we get an upswing of 96 buy-ins! Considering that my bankroll has always been around 100 buy-ins of the stakes I play, it's actually pretty scary to be thinking that I could have a downswing of this kind... I would have to move down at stakes of course, but seriously a downswing of 96 buy-ins would be very hard to take and I hope I won't have to deal with anything like that anytime soon...

Third record broken today is that of VPPs earned in a day: today I got 3205 VPPs which is great! It brings me a little bit closer to my Supernova goal:

The only record I didn't break today was that of tournaments per day. I'm not sure what exactly was the biggest number of tourneys I've played in a day, but it was over 500 so today's 471 doesn't cut it. It's ok, I'll live with that!!! :P

Anyway, I just wanted to make this quick update to share the good news with you guys! I'm not going to make any more posts before the holidays (unless of course something extraordinary happens again!) so I wish you Merry Christmas!!!


  1. wow, really impressive numbers!
    But 100 Buy-ins for Hypers is a bit aggro brm imo, saw some evil -150-300 BI downer even from good regs, variance can be a .... bitch ^^

    GL with your chase (im done alrd.) and merry x-mas :)

    1. It is aggressive, but what you need to remember is that it goes both ways... What I mean by that is that I move down way faster than a player that plays with 200-300 buy-ins. So eventually, it's balanced out. Anyway, I've made a more detailed post about it you can check it out if you want... (

      Enjoy your holidays since you are done already, (I'm jealous! :P) and merry Christmas!

  2. wow... That is truly impresive. I hope you continue crushing. Good job and good luck in the future. Any chance you are interested in offering me coaching for hypers?

    Merry Christmas

    1. Hello danuuutz!

      Thank you for your support and your interest in coaching. For the moment I'm not taking any students cause I'm super busy as it is with the Supernova chase! If I do decide to give coaching though, I'll say something on my blog!

      Merry Christmas to you too! :)

  3. Estive a acompanhar você nas mesas este dia.. e logo vi que teria um bom dia.. era incrível ver vc sempre a terminar no top 2.... um dia quero pegar uma reta assim tb!!

  4. First of all great result Katerina ;) Happy for u!

    I have a question: Why are u using ICMIZER to study instead of Sitngoewizard, isnt sitngoewizard the best program out there?

  5. Thank you Martin!

    I actually like ICMizer a lot more than Sitngowizard for studying... Sitngowiz is probably the most used program of that kind, but I'm not sure if it's the best... I plan to make a more detailed post about the software I use sometime during next month so check back for it! :)
