Intro: my name is senzuda I play PLO100 and PLO200 on natural 8 and apps. I began playing micros in 2016 while I was a student, I switched to PLO early on in my career, i learned by watching every second of Jnandez streams on YouTube and roughly memorizing how he played certain textures/spots/preflop ranges, etc. I graduated in summer 2017 and quickly realized a normal job was not for me. I lived in a cheap studio Apt for the next 2 years and played a mix of live PLO, PLO100 and 200 on American sites and apps with a varying monthly income from July 17 until January 2020. In Jan if 2020 I took a job I figured would be interesting with a startup in Asia. Now I am back being reminded why I played poker full time in the first place. however, I want to stay with my job and play poker only part time until the end of my employment contract. I am getting married in February and want to resume the more comfortable income/flexible schedule I made playing Full time.
Vision: I am a Successful PLO200 player improving with only limited time to dedicate to poker, Preparing myself to eventually move into PLO500+ and maintain my life Balance while also striving for improvement.
Purpose: provide for my family, become great in my craft.
Milestone: improve winrate at 200PLO over a 4 month long sample (currently hard to estime my potential amount of hands played). Buy a new car my family needs with the next 4 months of income.

Welcome to the PLO Mastermind and the community, great to have you apart of it 🙂
How are you finding life in Asia? Where abouts in Asia are you if you do not mind me asking.
Best of luck with the wedding in February I hope that the world will be somewhat back to normal then so you’re able to celebrate your day!
Good luck with your goals and I look forward to following your progress!

Almost exactly a year later I will update this progress log!
Honestly I am finding some of the topic of my original post funny now looking back, as I shared some personal details, but I suppose that’s ok.
Updates: I did end my job and return to playing full time this year and I grinded a lot. I played roughly 90% volume at PLO200 and switched all of that volume to 5 card.
Unfortunately I don’t have results to share because much of those hands were on apps that ban emulators and tracking. However, I recently switched back to entirely GG and the games on GG are also decent enough. So I could share results from GG only. (Although I’m running like 5k under ev on gg I don’t want that to seem like a bad beat complaint lol)
I have moved up to PLO500 in some capacity however due to table availability I play most at 200. So far I only have less than 20k hands at PLO500 5 card on GG though. I’ve run very well at PLO500 and Recently I had a nice tournament score which has helped for more shots comfortably.
Plo 5 card has been amazing. The preflop workshops on this site were very helpful and instantly plugged leaks. Full disclosure I used preflopwhiz (from Nick Frame) to dive deeper as I didn’t know much about plotrainer, maybe I need to sub plotrainer and check it out 🙂
To answer your question @adelaney I am in Vietnam. I find it very awesome in most ways, I have a very nice 2 br apartment in the capital city for ~550 USD/month. (Something that might cost many thousands of € in a majorEuropean city or many thousands of $ in a us city. I would suggest Southeast Asia to those it makes sense for and those who can adapt to different cultures. Thailand and Malaysia are likely better for western expats.
