      Well, I guess I don't have to introduce myself, so let's go straight ahead with my challenge.

      I will play on Everest with a very aggressive BRM.

      15 stacks --> on to the next limit
      less than 10 stacks --> moving down a limit

      history: I never had to move down a limit due to my very conservative BRM. As a matter of fact I am sometimes a little money scared when shotting Nl600 or playing deep on Nl400. To get rid of that and to see how far I can make it I will try to grind up to Nl1k on Everest.

      I cash out everything but 2.5k on Everest and will start on NL200 SH.
      I will mainly play NL SH and FR to rech my goal. I will update this blog regularly ( twice a week?). I will post here to controll myself, to get some motivation and to let you be part of it.

      starting BR: $2.500
      goal: Nl1k ( = 15k roll)

      Wish me luck, or better: no downswing :D

      Yes, that's right. Well, November wasn't spectacular cocnerning cash games. Something like 2 - 3k plus. But didn't play a lot. I had the nice tourney cash in november, which was one reason to play less ^^

      Sorry to hear that!!!
      As a fan, I'll fallow your blog for the essence in it, and wish you luck on your goal.
      First impression, even great players face variance: I shall not tilt for variance :D

      9 on Nl100 and Nl 200, from Nl400 on I will play 6. But well, first let's get there.

      I've chosen Everest because I had smalish bankroll there. I had a short but good time playing there and I can play threacked.

      Ok, here is the next update. The last days have been a strugle for me. Nl100 was tilting me the first two days. Opponents are so incredibly bad, I couldn't hanlde it seeing themhit their trips with T3o in a reraised pot. I was also just running bad, whenever a 2 weird two pair was possible, Villain had it. Well, here is the graph:



      And here we have the beatuy of the day:

      $0.5/$1 No Limit Holdem
      5 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG fisch17 ($227.60)
      CO Hero ($108.77)
      BTN TromPOKER ($65.25)
      SB teamen ($110.83)
      BB BOBASIA ($97.45)

      Pre-flop: ($1.50, 5 players) Hero is CO Q:heart: K:heart:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $3.50, TromPOKER calls $3.50, 1 fold, BOBASIA calls $2.50

      Flop: 9:heart: 7:heart: 8:heart: ($11, 3 players)
      BOBASIA checks, Hero bets $6, TromPOKER raises to $12, BOBASIA calls $12, Hero raises to $18, TromPOKER raises to $61.75, BOBASIA calls $49.75, Hero raises to $105.27, BOBASIA calls $32.20

      Turn: 5:spade: ($271.97, 3 players)

      River: 4:club: ($271.97, 3 players)

      Final Pot: $271.97
      BOBASIA shows: 2:heart: A:heart:
      Hero shows: Q:heart: K:heart:
      TromPOKER shows: 6:heart: T:heart:

      BOBASIA wins $63.91 ( lost -$33.54 )
      Hero wins $11.32 ( lost -$97.45 )
      TromPOKER wins $194.74 ( won +$129.49 )

      That's how I was running...

      Well, after I took a tilt shot at Nl400 ( ended break even), I started the new day with a different strategy.

      I mplayed nitty 16/12 and playe 11 tables at once to stop me from making bluffs, loose steals or resteals. I guess 16/12 is the most profitable style vs those idiots.

      Anyway, BR is about : 2.1k

      I hope to be back on Nl200 in some days.
