      for OP, your mindset really sucks at the moment.
      This was the last post in my previous Blog where i tried to accomplish SNE challenge(by the way i didn't get it, suprise!!! :facepalm: ) and he's right, my mindset sucks and trying to change that for the last 24 years ? mhm yeah it's sounds about right.
      In 29.December i'm moving to Japan and hope to stay there for few years. But before i move there i want to have healty roll in poker 'cause first months will be tought to survive.


      Even if im naive and hope to have 10k$ before moving away i would be glad if my cashier would show 5k$ before i move away.


      Small summary about my past successes:

      I was playing poker for a long long time but started to take it seriously last year in June. Even if i was afraid to move to highter stakes i managed to win 4-5k$ until now but as i always found new reasons why i should spend that money than leave it in cashier, i somehow was able to build BR from nothing few times already.


      So i'll start with 735.25$


      p.s. I'm going to use chilin_dude strategy from 2+2 (forum)!Also want to thank him for giving inspiration to try out SNG&MTT.

      Plan:
      1. Play nothing other than $2.50 180s & 3.50 45s on stars till I have $1500 in the roll. Do not withdraw at any point and If i drop below 400$ i have to go back to 1$ 180man and 1.50$ 45man and take shots at 2.50$ 180man and 3.50$ 45man as soon as i'll be over 400$ mark.

      2. With $1500 playin 15 180s mainly, mixing with 3.5r 180s, 2.50 180s and 7 45s, also will play 4.50$ 180man and 7$ KO. Grind them hard till I have $5500k in the bankroll. If at any point I drop below $1200 I have to go back to step 1 till I have $1500 again and take a 'shot' at #2 again. Do not withdraw at this point till i'll have 5500$ roll.

      3. With the $5.5k I can play any freezout mtt up to $55, and any rebuy up to $11r but cant take more than $55 worth of buyins. This gives me 100buyins, if at any point I drop below $3k I have to move down to step 2 untill I hit $5.5k and can take a shot again. Mainly I will still be grinding 12/180s and mixing in some 36/180s whenever they go off as well.


      That's enough for now but before i start i want to post my overall sharkscope graph just for record:

      Everyone always has plans about moving up and make more money. However there is no things about studying, taking coaching for moving up, or how long/much $$ you will spend on that.

      On a other note, best of luck

      :heart: AUGUST WRAP-UP :heart:




      First i want to apologize for my past behaviour by whining and cursing everyone around me but i promise it will not happen again.

      So the whining thing is out of our way and i can finaly leave a small summary for August. I switched to SNG/MTT on 24th August and even if it was hard and frustrating seeing how swingy tourneys and it's more frustrating if you're in middle of that but i know that in the end when i'll have 10k$ BR i will look back at this challenge and smile while being happly drunk :)

      Anyway, starting from today i'm going to be more vocal and will write down every tiny detail what happened at sessions and also about other things.

      Also i wanted to inform that i will only post sng graphs and gonna leave out mtt's cause HM2 is kinda bugy and i'm too lazy to filter every tournament.

      Common September give me a break and let me win few k$!!!

      Current BR: 597.57$

      I never had so many FT going at the same time, crazy day. Tried to play few MTT and satts but with no luck. Also opened few 180man and even if i had 2 FT the highest place was 3rd but anyway need to get use to 2.50 playing style at FTs because they are a lot different than at 90man, more nittish.

      For MTT and SNG i'm using ICMIZER it helps to be more precise in push/fold situations. About coaching, if you're not familiar with mttsng than i prefer take coaching for few weeks so that you would learn the basics but afterwards it's only up to you how much you will spend time reviewing hands after sessions and remember every hand you review are worth it.

      and best of luck to you too :)
