      Was playing 6max ZOOM for the past 3 months but somehow this month couldn't get myself to play, started to lose my game, played only 30h in 3 weeks, breakeven for April and somehow lost hope in poker&life altogether so i want to change everything, so here it is:

      BR at the moment is over 1k$ but will start with NL5 because want to get use to 24 tabling and see how the games have changed in the last 2 years.

      Going to grind a lot so hope to finish this challenge as fast as i can:

      need to win 100$ at NL5 to move to NL10;

      need to win 200$ at NL10 to move to NL25;

      need to have at least 1500$ BR to play at NL25;

      need to have at least 2500$ BR to play at NL50;

      all fpp's will be used for 3.30$ and 11$ satts, and T$ will be used to micro MTT's and MTT's on FTP.

      I'm going to update this blog daily/every other day and hope to do it until June 30th.

      Thank you for following and Let's the grinding BEGIN!!!

      Session:

      1789h
      -3.99$

      1820h
      -5.31$

      Damn lost 3 300bb+ pots and had a nice roller coaster in the last 2 session which lead to not a good start but oh well what can you do, if it's means to beat this limit with 0.01bb/100h, it will be, at least we'll all have nice laught :)

      Anyway, time to bed, GN!

      1944h
      +16.90$

      1742h
      -4.65$

      1999h
      -4.68$

      mhm, after 11k+ hands i'm break-even which shows that i'm doing something wrong... went through all HH and found that i could save 15$ and also i'm calling to much turns/rivers with TPTK vs regs/nits so calling less would be a good choice, because it's fullring and every nit who calls flop cbet, 2/3 times will have nuts, so its a big -ev for Hero, yeah i know, it's sucks, almost forgot how nitty can fullring really be :D
      Anyway, yesterday couldn't play much because one of relatives had a birthday, so was home at 22:xx and the only thing i could do was to play satts for 900 tourney and was happy to win one but i'm going to use it for BR.
      But today i will try to win a ticket again and hope to participate in 109$ buy-in tourney, also have some $ stuck at FTP so going to see how i can use them there.
      So first comes cash and later will have nice mtt grind, GL :)

      won 4 109$ tickets, going to use them for BR but unfortunetly couldn't win last 20+ tourneys that i opened with hope to participate in 900 million tourneys but i still had nice boost for BR which is always nice :)

      also didn't knew they have small 375fpps satts for Sunday Million, 36 people play and first place wins the ticket so in the next weeks will try them out.

      Also will try to win a ticket to Sunday storm, so gl!

      1916h
      -3.16$

      2156h
      +1.48$

      I only opened 4 tourneys,1 itm, don't know why but just wanted to get back to cash, somehow want to see how long will it take to get to NL25 and how hard are to beat NL5,NL10 and so on but i'll get back to tourneys but not now, maybe when i'll get to NL25 i'll find some motivation to grind tourneys :)

      Anyway, NL5 going fine, finally started to call less, fold more often to reg/nit bets on turn,river and my ev line finally is where it should be :) So right now with 18k hands played i'm +32$ so need another 68$ but even if i'll run like shit for the next week i know that sooner or later i will get 100$ profit and than i will happliy announce that i beated NL5 :)

      I'm too tired and frustrated to write today's summary, but right now i don't believe i can't beat NL5, tables are more nittier than in Zoom, lost 400bb pot, and right now i'm on 10bi downswing and today all my two pair/sets run into stronger hands and at the moment my hourly in NL5 is 0.85$ :f_cry:

      fuck it, going to sleep, GN and GL!

      NL5 summary:

      Too nitish and reggish for my taste, but even than the people are making stupid mistakes, fishes are paying whenever they hit 2-3rd pair and 3bet/4bets are pretty rare there. Sure there're ops who tries to 3bet a lot but in the end they make too many mistakes to make it profitable which is nice for players who knows how to exploit 3bets...
      Anyway need to keep strong and believe in your game because if you're a winning player at that limit you will get back your $ in one way or another :)


      also it's been a while when saw interesting boards in pokerstars:

      Something i'm doing wrong, last session was really good but still only won ~1bi, also have this weird feeling while playing at NL10, maybe because i'm not feeling comfortable playing this limit or i'm not confident in my game...But!
      The funny thing is, NL10 is easier than NL5 because at NL10 people are bluffing and leveling each other more often, the tables are a more fishier and people are more aggresive, even if they still don't 3bet/4bet enough but even than i have this weird feeling that it's going to be much harder to win those 200$ than i thought at the beggining but who knows, maybe i just overthinking and need to continiue grinding like i'm doing up till now and hope that i will be enough to beat this limit :)

      Ok time to bed, later i will write small summary about April, GN!

      GL!
