      hey man!

      I'm always glad to see fellow members from the hungarian comm. here !:)

      GL with your challenge!

      One Q regarding your plans:

      Don't you think that a winrate of 2,5bb/100 @NL20 with 100% RB would be an underachievement?

      Set your goal to 2500 usd and than if you fail, you will still have like +1k up the original :D

      Woow, thank you boys! You have right, 2,5bb/100 is easy, so I set my goal to 1500 USD, then I have to run with 5bb/100.

      Let's go to eat something, then watch 2 videos and go to playing tennis.

      Im not sure you will get anywhere near 80% rakeback playing cashgames on Ongame. (due to their essence "rake distribution" system)

      Im sure. :s_cool: Why?

      • FD bonus (48% rakeback)
      • Privat rakerace (20-30% rakeback)
      • Cashback (20-30% rakeback)
      • Promotions (0-20% rakeback)

      Problem is how the rake is distributed in cash games.

      For example you might pay 100$ of rake in a cash game and only get credited 50$ to you (and get rakeback and points based on that) because you are a winning player.
      So you would get 80-100% from that 50$.

      Lost $1.6k, thanks FTP! :s_cry: I have got just $600 atm, so i dont have enough money to earn maximum FD bonus (1000$).

      + most of the rooms don't pay cashback while you'll clearing FDB or any other bonus. So yeah that doesn't look possible to me either. :(

      Btw where do you get those private rakeraces?

      Thanks, boys. The room isn't partner with PokerStrategy, so just in privat message.

      The first session was good, i played 1 hour and won more than 2 BI, so good start. Now break, then play...

      Comment:

      The start was good, but at the end of the day, was 2-3 cooler and suckout, so my profit was over. I lost 25bb. I played 6 tables and for 1 hour 9 tables. I think, I played well, but I maked 2-3 mistakes.

      Biggest pot, that I won:
      I hate limp/raise, but if I have aces... :f_love:

      Played 1024 hands, won 15$. Now break, in the evening I post update.

      An intresting hand against agressive regular:
      He likes restealing on SB and BB, and folds a lot of to 4bet. I didn't have blocker, but was a good spot.
