      Lately I have been playing a fair amount of live poker and had some reasonable good results, but saturday I really messed it up by going to the casino after two bottles of Möet and ended up blowing 600€ which I really worked hard on winning in the first place.

      Why do a start this challenge then, motivation? No, everybody say that they start blogs/challenges for motivation, but the truth is I just like to post my silly thought somewhere while I track my progress moving forward on my goal on becoming a professional poker player, traveling the world, getting experiences for a lifetime and being able to do what I really want to do. Hopefully this will also help me be more disciplined about not tilting, playing drunk, etc.

      I thought the funniest concept to this challenge/blog would to start a bit under rolled (I already mentioned that I'm a degen) I therefore want to start with a 646€ BR (the amount I'm up since I started tracking my results) and play 1/2€ cash game as well as 50€ MTT's, which usually is very small and soft fields at the casino.

      I will go into stuff about buy-in amount, stop loss and what I might have to do to keep my stop loss in future posts when it become relevant.

      The reason why I have decided to make this a challenge and not a blog is that I have a goal about making €7,500 by September 9. which is the day my contract as a Xerox service agent ends and the day I hopefully will be able to start playing poker for a living.

      What to expect from this thread then? I'm 21 years old so although I will spend the majority of my time in the weekends at the casino I will also go out a fair bit and pop bottle, so beside poker results I might post some pics which I something I personally like to read about so hopefully people will follow.

      After six sessions:

      Im just sitting at the casino waiting for a cash game to start, I was just knocked out of a 55€ second chance, got it in early w AQhh on a AJ7h flop vs a guy a feel is very polorized, he turned up w AJ and NO suckout. My second knockout was QxTh on a QhJh9h 2x board and magical river vs AA.

      Yesterday I also played. No luck in the tournament either, but made +105€ in cash game so turned up with a small profit.

      Tomorrow some of my friends are organizing a small home party, dont really wanna go as they are dicks when they are drunk and the girls are usually pretty bad so we will see if i can come up with an excuse for going to the casino or going out poppin bottles. :f_biggrin:

      Cant argue with that! In the end there was no home party, so w/e. :f_cool:

      I really feel like I have been running like aids this week, especially at The Sporting Emporium where I haven't been able to hit a barrel if I was standing two feet away. Yesterday it came to a point where I might have overreacted a little after losing QQ v 82s (just sitting and starring for a minute after losing) so the guy who beat me actually gave me 100€ (the size of the pot he won). He said I could give it back if I won which I didn't but I still intend on paying him back as he is a really nice guy.

      I have been able to win back most of my money at Fitzwilliam Casino so I'm not down too much for the week, but it would really be nicer to be showing profit.

      Tonight I played a 50€ MTT. I had just been moved to a new table with an insanely hot dealer, she gave me KQ in SB I call a CO open, so does BB. Flop QQx checked around, turn is blank as well, I bet around 1/3 of my stack which is a little over half pot CO shove I snap and he shows AQ… She is no longer my favorite dealer! (still my favorite waiter though :f_love: ). That hand sums up the week at Sporting Emporium pretty well, but what can you do? Play better and play it out, I feel like most regs are pretty splashy and when the run good is coming I can take them for a good amount!

      In which casino do you play? Since I moved to Copenhagen haven't played any live games since the limits are way too high at least the ones I saw on casino Copenhagen webpage.

      Otherwise, good luck with the challenge :)

      I live in Dublin so that is where I am playing. Haven't been to any casinos in Denmark, so can't give you much advice.

      Lately I have been playing bad, running bad. Nothing I have done have really worked out for me, still I have managed to almost be breakeven for the last two weeks which I'm actually pretty happy about. Hopefully I will hit a small or big heater for that matter! ;)

      Tuesday I went to a Miley Cyrus concert which was surprisingly good, the scene show was amazing and the songs was better than expected! Afterwords we went out and popped a coupe bottles. The mext Day was not good though! My boss was not happy about me meeting up and hour late and being drunk. :f_biggrin: But fuck that I had a good time.

      Atm I'm playing, so hopefully the run good will come along (actually doubled while writing this post) :f_biggrin:

      Haven't been updating for a while because I don't have internet at home and I haven't had time to update in my lunch break at work but here goes.

      Basically I have been running pretty bad in some spots that could have given me some pretty big scores, big cash game hands as well as hands that easily could have lead to 'big scores' in tournaments, which have been pretty frustrating. As I haven't been studying much lately I decided to take the weekend off from playing and instead do some studying, so I went to a friends house and downloaded some training videos. I started from the bottom of the list of videos, so they were quite old, but still some of the fundementals are the same, the thought process are the same, so overall I think I picked up some pretty some things from there.

      Yesterday I started re-watching Breaking Bad with a friend, so I'm not sure if we are going to watch some more episodes or I'm gonna go to my friends house, and play some online poker. If possible I will probably try to do both, but we will see.

      Might upload some graphs when I get the chance.
