      Throw this one out the window and never think of it again! It's only because you can't control money goals in short time, you can run really cold and get beat after beat and you will just beat yourself playing on tilt trying to scrape in profit for the day. Focus on the goal that you actually can do which is play 4h

      No way. Rake at lowest stakes kill lots of the "big" edge you'd normally have on your opponents so even w high daily volume you'll have negative days imo.

      Welcome to our Blogging section!

      Glad to see you've got some solid and structured goals set up already!

      I'm tempted to agree with most previous posts, the rake in micros can be brutal, and it's possibly not the best idea to force yourself to push massive volume if you can't play your best game while chasing a "non-loss day" just for the sake of it. Maybe "No weeks without profit" is a better approach?

      Anyway, best of luck reaching your goals!

      Regards,
      Richard

      Hi Niekaszz

      First I want to wish you the best of luck on the tables!

      But tbh Toss the edit out the window as well. I wouldn't set goals about winning/losing. If you do i would set something like play at least 10bb/100hands before I move to the next limit. You can have a serious swing and then you tilt to get into profit for the week.

      Just my 2c
