      Hello,
      Im student from Latvia and want to try somethink interesting. First blog here!

      As you can see my aim is to survive as long as possible as my FTP BR is frozen i want to build it up from almost nothink. Actually I started this yesterday in other forum, but there was hard to make blog, so i will post here.
      Im using Holdem Manager as hud


      This mission is pretty impossible, as variance in poker can kill my BR in 1 day.


      Ok, lets start with 70FPP Sat to Sunday Storm 10+1$:f_p:

      BR - 1k FPP in PokerStars
      Nick - martinstids


      Day 0 



      BR-0$ FPP- 1k







      P.S. Sry, i have probems with english grammer :tongue:

      Day 1 
       

      5x 70FPP Sat to 11$ MTT = 1 ITM 4 OUT = +11$ WOOT
      5x Fifty50 1.50$ = 4 ITM 1 OUT = +0.37$
      1.50$ KO 6/90 = +3.60 + 0.81 (KO)$
      2x 1.10$  OUT
      4x 1.50$ KO 90max OUT
      3x 1.50$ KO 90 max OUT      
      2x 0.25$ 90max OUT
       2x 1.10$ MTT OUT
      1.50$ KO 90max = 5/90 6.80$ + 2-3KO
      0.25$ 90max = 7/90  ~0.80$
      8x 1.50$ Fifty50 = 6 ITM   2 OUT = +1.7$ 


      BR = 15.08$      FPP = 728

      Day 4  
       

      250FPP satt to sunday storm = +11$ :s_love:
      1.10$MTT OUT



      BR = 38.84$
      FPP = 535


      Pretty good run. I was lucky enoght to finish ITM ( TOP 6) in 250FPP hyper turbo mtt with ~ 20 players (not sure ). These 11$ made a great night session while wathing movie and get ready for sleep hehe.
      Now my bankroll can afford to get small downswing so i feel more safe now :D

      As i maneged to get so much money, i have to set a goals:
      • Strict BRM - 40-50 BI for MTT and 25-30 BI for SNG tournaments. ( not sure if its enoght)
      • Strict discipline and no tilt
      • I will play only when im in good mood.
      • Survive, survive and survive.
      • Play 80% SNG and 20% other.
      • Finish read ebook - Kill everyon and start read other great books.
      • Watch strategy videos here ( bad think that im not tracked so i dont get any strategy points :frown )
      • ... to be continued.
