      hey all, after seeing a few other people using the tankroll, decided I'm gonna give it a try myself

      Will use a slightly different version, where I play NL2 from 21$ on ( since i have winrate of 7bb/100, according to http://pokerdope.com/poker-variance-calculator/
      my risk of ruin is less then 5% with a 1049bb roll

      as was suggested by someone in skypegroup, will exchange part of my roll that I can't use in other currency.
      eg. starting with 150$
      will buy in 4*10$, exchange 70$ in euro, when i get a message i cant autorebuy any more, I know it's time to move down and i'll have at least 3*10$ + 70$=100$
      from then on I have to play NL5
      just seems easier than having to keep an eye on cashier the whole time
      edit: make sure to change your default multicurrency settings for this

      Will be playing SH Zoom on stars btw, and not including rakeback in Tankroll
      In last 3 months have played NL2, NL5, NL10, NL25 and had some shots at NL50, so I'll feel comfortable playing all this limits
      For NL100 I'll switch to reg tables

      will have daily updates on graph, hand of the day, and to make it a bit more fun, the 1$ spin and go of the day ( I know from theoretical point of view including spin and go is not optimal, but as was described in vid about tankroll, you have to look at is as a game on it's own, just think this adds a little bit flavour to challenge. Will not spin and go if roll is below 100$ btw)

      Disclaimer: I know this tankroll is designed for good regs trying to make a quick surge through micro's, however since I never made a deposit, and still have enough roll left if this fails to grind 10NL, I don't really mind if I would loose it all, since it would hopefully give me some xp on higher limits
      also i made the adjustement of playing NL2 from 21$, to make my risk of ruin even smaller

      so that's about it, will have the first update ready by tonight

      day 2: had a homegame at my place, 6max NL10, +18euro :)
      no time to grind online, but am considering to merge my off- and online bankroll

      day 3:
      Tankroll: 176$
      graph:


      Things allmost went wrong on first try on NL25, since standard setting in pokerstars seems to exchange your currenby without notification. :) luckily spotted it on time, so no major disaster. My second try NL25 was at end this evening, managed to get trips and double up, easy game ;)
      all in all a good day, made a few mistakes, but seemed to be enough fish around to balance them;

      spin and go
      could not bring myself to play them, just feels to much like gambling, maybe I'll add them when TR is over 300$

      Looks like a good plan to play Spin & Go with more than 300 buy-inns.
      Variance is most likely even higher then 6 and 9 max hyper SNG's.
      Further you ended well your session. Keep it up ;)

      Tankroll: 213$

      graph


      NL10 graph today

      My KK met with an AA, but still managed to make nice profit on NL10, with a almost breakeven redline :)

      @SDK, It was never my intention to actually grind the spin and go, but just play 1 every day. Thx for following my blog btw, when are you starting ur own blog?
      Am curious as to what games you play, esp MTT ;)

      @livethelife: hope to get good results, so i can convice you to start tankrollercoasting yourself ;)

      day 7:


      tankroll: 147$

      back to square one, Nl10 was going great so far, 10buyins up in 7k hands,
      NL25 am down 4 buyin of 2.5K hands, it sucks

      not sure if i should move up to NL25 again, swings are getting to me a bit :)
      contemplating just grinding NL10 till i have a few buyins for a shot at NL25
      this would be against the rules of the tankroll, so i'd have to give up on challenge, or change rules a bit ( think it's ok to do so since i would just be making it a bit more conservatie, however i may just be on the road to conservative BRM by doing this)
      just seem to be playing way to scared on NL25, resulting in red en green line going down really fast, so no point in taking shots so far
