      Hi,

      Just giving myself 10 days to reach a reasonable bankroll for NL25.

      Daily goals:

      In the morning watch a poker video, review hands from previous day and do equity calculations.

      Side goals:

      Reach gold star on stars
      Reach plat status on ps.com


      Starting bankroll: 166.39 (+ 0$ rakeback)

      Good luck :)

      What games are you going to play at first, 5NL or something else?

      I'm starting with NL16 Zoom.

      I started with NL5 a few weeks ago, using 5 BI BRM. But for NL25 I want to get around 25 BI's a.k.a. 625$+ is the goal.

      I was up to 230$ or so, but hit like two days where I went -100$. So now I challenge myself to get a proper bankroll for the next limit.

      Hey KingKas,

      Nice challenge. You should take a look at our Get Rich or Die Tryin' promotion as well as Goal-Getter.

      Get Rich or Die Tryin' has no time limit, but Goal getter ends at the end of the month. Who knows, you could win a PS hoodie. :f_thumbsup:

      GL :gl:

      @Lazza61 Thanks :) Maybe if I reach NL25, as a new challange I will join.


      Starting BR today: 140.52$(+ 0$ rakeback)

      Overall, some stupidly played spots by myself and running against my favour, bringing me in sticky situations.

      Positive though, I'm reviewing my hands every morning and watch a lot more videos.

      I don't think anyone runs as bad as I do. I went from NL16 to NL2 within a few days.

      Just saying, I play at least 3k hands every day, up to 5 on some, and I give all I can, but I just run terrible as hell. Just the last 2 examples from right now which pushed me to NL2.

      But, gotta adopt a good mentality. Start again and again, until it works x.x

      But I will adopt a proper BRM now finally, so that when I step up I won't have to step down again, because that's quite frustrating.

      Maybe I finally learnt.

      Basic situation maybe you could avoid going broke in the river by checking your a 4 , because there is four straight on the board , villain probably check back to you
