      Hello Pokerstrategy!!

      My name is Nick and you may have followed me in a previous blog entitled:

      "Can you teach an old fish new tricks? (Rising from rock bottom)"

      Anyway...

      As promised I am on a new adventure which I would like to document here for both my own record and so you guys can follow along if you like :D

      Basically I am on a mission to get to Thailand. I have been invited by a TOP SECRET Bracelet winner (who shall not be named) to join him for coaching and backing in Thailand during which time I will move out for a couple months and get some experience with a very successful player.

      I submitted an application via 2+2 forum and received a positive response but before I can set sail to Thailand I need to complete a task/ audition if you will.

      I need to play 125,000 Hands and show a profit of +1.5BB/100 before the end of the year.

      I will be playing 100% 6-max $.10/$.20holdem on Ipoker network - Speed poker and Regular tables where fishiest and the occasional weekly freeroll :D

      Should be doable and fingers crossed - won't waffle on too much - I just want a place to document my bi-weekly results for later reference.

      Hope you guys enjoy :D

      Week 1 (1/2) - Play from Monday 18th November 2013

      Didn't get that many hands in since last Monday as I was travelling so counting this as the first half of week one.

      Will continue posting every Thursday and Sunday from now on.

      Good start - Hopefully will continue through to the end of the year:



      $215.88 Profit // $264.18 incl. RB

      Wow, how did u turn ur graph so good? just 2 months ago it didnt look as near good as this one.

      Can I come to thailand aswell :D ? Would be sick to be in such a good weather, beautiful girls and good poker friends to grind with. Thats my dream right now. The good poker friends are the most important. I can move to thailand right now if i want, but i dont have anyone poker related friends that want to come :( .

      Thanks mate - just been working a lot on my game plus playing live a lot has given me a chance to think about my game.

      I dunno about coming to Thailand - you will have to check out the 2 + 2 forums and see if you qualify.

      U seem super solid right now. What u shouldnt do right now is change anything in ur game, when its going good, just keep doing what u doing. Dont look at videos or tips from other players.

      When its going good for me and i try to put in a new concept that i learned, it starts to go bad. So keep the good run by only playing the type of game u have played to get that graph.

      Week 1 (2/2)

      Started off playing weird - was thinking I was making mistakes and by the time I sorted out my play I started running pretty bad - Roughly 6 BI below EV but managed to bring it back before this post.

      Need to not get in the habit of starting every week with a loss (E.G. THE OLD BLOG!):



      - $16.25 Profit // $59.70 incl. RB

      Still "On target" to complete the challenge overall but I need to expect more from my play - I think I will be disappointed if I don't finish the challenge with greater than +8bb/100

      More graphs on Sunday!!

      Week 2 (1/2)

      All play since my last post on Thursday.

      Making progress towards the final hand count but pretty much a break even -Classic RB to the rescue :D

      Had two huge hands right at the end of today's session - KK into AA (500BB pot) and set over set (350BB pot) just to really tilt me before today's post.



      - $5.55 Profit // $35.42 incl. RB

      See you on Thursday - Hopefully with better results :/
