      Hi, last week I was making my third shot to NL25 and it didn't go well :( I really started doubt in my game, so because of that I decided to go back to NL10 and crush it. :)

      My challenge goal is to play 50k hands on NL10 FR and have over 7bb/100 win rate. I will be playing 6 tables, mixing up normal tables with deep tables, because I really like them :D

      I will be posting graphs and some interesting hands every day.

      Other poker goals for August :
      :diamond: post hands from every session to evaluation forum.
      :diamond: watch 5-7 videos.
      :diamond: read Leatherass book Treat Your Poker Like A Business.
      :diamond: finish reading "Building a Bankroll" by Verneer.

      Non poker goals:
      :club: workuot 3 times a week.
      :club: start running 3 times a week.
      :club: end up driving lessons.
      :club: have fun.


      I will probably start playing tomorrow, but if I have a free time today, I will definitely start crushing :D

      Hey TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      Good luck with the challenge! Let's hope you can crush NL10 and this time successfully move up to NL25.

      Looking forward to seeing some graphs!

      Kind regards,
      Tino

      I'm not happy with my volume, but I will try to increase it, here is the graph from beginning of this challenge until now.




      Hands: 50000/5356

      Win rate: 14bb/100

      Profit:76,69$


      I finished reading Building a Bankroll. I liked it, but I didn't learn a lot of new stuff, it was like revision off all basic stuff. I think this book is very good for begginers. I really liked the hand examples after every concept.
